Weekend @ One Utama Shopping Mall
It was a very packed weekend at the mall with many families visiting the Japan Travel fair and LEGO City's Exhibition. The economy must be good with many people flying off to Japan for vacations. More people are also buying LEGO sets nowadays too. This is such an expensive hobby as my good friend Bruce Lee has invested thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours building his LEGO sets! So we went to see Bruce's own exhibit on display.
Shoppers are always attracted to anything about Japan!
Their food, vacations and products are often well rated.
We went to check their discounted train fares for our coming
trip to see the Sapporo Snow Festival this Winter.
The whole exhibition area was set up like a traditional shopping
street in Kyoto.
Their folks were very attentive and gave very helpful information
to everyone who dropped by.
It was like walking inside Japan with people wearing their traditional
uniform. I saw a Ninja too.
Pretty ladies in their Winter Outfits to promote
the snowing season in Hokkaido.
Their new bullet train Hokkaido Shinkansen has been connected from Tokyo
directly to the South of Hokkaido. It would be very soon when it reaches
Sapporo City. As you know, they build everything fast and even
patched up the huge sinkhole in Fukuoka
within 2 days!!!
LEGO CITY EXHIBITION
Entrance into the LEGO City with Christmas Trees all over.
All generations in the families enjoyed themselves!
The organizers are very smart to plan and draw the crowds.
Who is this man?
My friend Bruce Lee's masterpiece is the cream coloured building in the middle.
That costs him over RM1,000 and he dare not tell me the actual costs. Tsk! Tsk!
I played with LEGO bricks when I was barely 8 years old. These LEGO
sets were not available in Malaysia then, and it belonged to my childhoodfriends whose parents owned the MUI Group. They bought them
from Hong Kong.
Looks like a crowded area in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Someday we can make a full scale KL City using Lego bricks too.
My eyes went giddy looking at the whole city.
This expensive hobby is able to gather the parents and children
to spend many hours to explore their creativity with LEGO bricks.
This must be "The Bridge Over Troubled Waters".
They even assembled an airport complete with movable
planes and airport runway!
