You know how we always wish there are two weekdays and five weekends in a week? My wish came true this week! If I knew every week was a two day work week, I'd never ever get Monday blues and I'll be far more productive at work every day.

Day 1:

Got out of bed early and crossed the causeway. Yes, to JB again, but this time to Legoland with my buddy!

If you're planning to head to Legoland (especially if you're bringing kids along) and you're not driving, I'd strongly encourage you to travel by coach. You pay slightly more on transport in return for convenience. WTS Travel provides daily departure with a wide range of timings, at a reasonable price.

Otherwise, if you're a little more adventurous, you can try going public like we did.

Getting pass Singapore customs via the Woodlands checkpoint should be a breeze. From there, we boarded bus 170 that took us to JB Sentral. I believe there are other buses that takes you to JB Sentral as well. You just got to check them out.

Once you get to JB Sentral, look for bus LM1. It takes you to Legoland for RM 4.50 per pax. Traveling time is about 30-45 minutes 'cause it makes pit stops at Larkin Sentral and Hello Kitty Town first. The first bus departs at 9am and every one and a half hours thereafter.

You'd be able to spot the vibrantly coloured Legoland hotel from a distance before the bus stops for you to alight.

We paid about SGD $400 for one night stay in their themed hotel, inclusive of our 2-day combo tickets. I'd say that the price is really worth it given that the staff were really helpful and every thing there somehow just makes you super cheery!

Cute Lego bellboys to welcome us!

The sand Lego boxes at the hotel lobby for the kids (or adults like ourselves who get excited over Legos). Oh, almost forgot to mention that Wi Fi is only available at the lobby currently.

Out of the three themes (pirate, adventure, and kingdom) the hotel offered, we chose the pirate theme.

The good thing about the hotel room is that you've got a king size bed and a bunk bed with with a pull out trundle bed. Which means you pay for a room and your kids (if you brought any along) get to stay for free instead of having to pay more for extra beds.

There is a stretch of restaurants (Burger King, Secret Recipe, The Manhetten Fishmarket, Elmigos, etc) just outside the theme park. We went for Old Town White Coffee 'cause we're both coffee addicts. It was the right choice 'cause they had free Wi Fi!

During our stay, there was hardly any tourists 'cause it was the weekdays and it wasn't during the school vacation period. In fact, it was pretty much like a ghost town, having the restaurants to ourselves. I love it 'cause it's so peaceful and there's no crowd to photo bomb my photos.

I'll let the photos do the talking for a while now... ...

If there's one thing you can't do without in Legoland, it's your camera! We spent the whole day snapping away at every thing and any thing. It was a trip back to my childhood where Lego (instead of Barbie) was one of my favourite toys.

We settled for what the hotel offered at the lobby 'cause we were too lazy to head out. Our choices were really limited 'cause there was only two restaurants. The food was a little on the expensive side yet didn't taste as good as it cost. So just get your ass out of the hotel for cheap good food.

Day 2:

Our tummies were well taken care of since we paid for bed and breakfast. They had quite a spread for breakfast although it's the usual food you get at most hotels.

Checked out the water theme park despite not swimming. 

The best part about the water theme park is that they actually have cabanas for rent. Brilliant idea! You have your own private space and shade with your own fan and mini fridge to beat the scorching hot weather.

Spent the rest of our day creating our own Lego figures and lazing around before we headed back to reality. I made the one on the right, a pirate-mermaid-pocahontas-sword-girl-fairy-Lego!

It was a fun trip, one that brought me back to my precious childhood days. Definitely a place for the young and young at heart!

"Childhood memories were like airplane luggage; no matter how far you were traveling or how long you needed them to last, you were only ever allowed two bags. And while those bags might hold a few hazy recollections -- a dinner with a jukebox at the table, being pushed on a swing set, the way it felt to be picked up and spun around -- it didn't seem enough to last a whole lifetime." -Jennifer E. Smith
