Year of the Monkey at Legoland Malaysia

In conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration, Legoland Malaysia invites visitors to participate in Malaysia Book of Records’ world record attempt to build 2,016 LEGO model monkey replicas between 22 January to 14 February 2016.

We visited Legoland right after my confinement, and before Chinese New Year just to join in the fun- only to find out that the target has been achieved!

Check out all the monkeys, and this is just part of the 2,016 replicas already built.

Thankfully, we are still allowed to join in the fun. As one of the staff mentioned, it is good to have spare replicas, in case some of the monkeys were not built according to specifications.

So here is my attempt on the monkey, I decided to go for orange and white, with a black nose.

This is DC's version. Being herself, she insisted on doing a rainbow monkey, much to mummy's chagrin (colours are not symmetrical!). Oh well, you can't stop a kid's creativity can you?

As a reward for completing the monkey replica, we received a lovely red limited edition Lunar New Year DUPLO commemorative brick.

Now I have one extra brick to add to my collection, the other being my Halloween Brick o Treat event DUPLO block.

There is still one week to participate in the event. The building activity is located next to the Ninjago show in LEGO CITY.

Here's wishing all of you Gong Xi Fa Cai, Happy Chinese New Year!
