I had an interesting trip over the weekend courtesy of LEGOLAND Nusajaya Malaysia. I was there for the LEGO Star Wars Days at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort and explore the activities together with fellow bloggers. We took a cab and bus from Singapore to LEGOLAND Malaysia and surprisingly, it was quite easy and hassle free travelling via public transport. LEGO Star Wars Days is by far the largest collaboration on a regional level between The LEGO Group and LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. LEGO Star Wars Days will take place the entire month of May and it is an annual event that will take place every year at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
MASTER YOUR FORCE and be part of this during this month (MAY) to explore! So, what can you expect from this event?
1. SEE THE LARGEST REPLICA OF LEGO MILLENNIUM FALCON
The world’s largest replica of the LEGO Millennium Falcon is built in LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort from 30 April – 2 May. It took the master builder duo (Dan Steininger and Chris Steininger) , 30 hours over 3 days to complete the model. The model is display in the park till end of this month.
2. BUILD AND TAKE HOME A MINI LEGO MILLENNIUM FALCON

All you need to do is to head down to the LEGO Academy and follow the instruction sheet on how to build the mini LEGO Millennium Falcon.

3. FREE ENTRY FOR KIDS WHO DRESSED UP IN A STAR WARS COSTUME
Rejoice for the FREE entry for kids. Parents can save some money and yet bring the kids to explore LEGOLAND for FREE. The kids will need to dress up in a Star Wars costume to be entitled with this. I saw quite a number of kids dressing up over the weekend and they are all so adorable!

4. THE IMPERIAL MARCH FROM 501st LEGION SERIES
So on 7th & 8th of this month, guests get to witness the Imperial March with more than 90 costumes from the 501st Legion in various characters from the series. The marching parade started at 11.00am and witness the march led by an army of Stormtroopers, Darth Vader and many more. It was amazing view to see a HUGE group of the characters marching LIVE just in front of my eyes.
