End your day with a bang by getting a ride on Asia’s first 4D Indoor Ride! Ninjago is the newest edition to the Legoland rides and it certainly lives to its expectation. Many lined up to get a spot on their interactive ride and boy was it fun! You’ll have the chance to be heroes and defeat the “Great Devourer” (the main villain of the story-led experience) with your bare hands. Thanks to all new sensor technology, you’ll have full control of your actions, giving it a new meaning to indoor rides.

During the ride, you’ll be divided into teams of 4, each competing to see which team scores the highest. The rules of the ride are quite simple actually, you’ll only need to use your hands to guide the controls, aiming at the targets to engage. The ride takes about 3-5 minutes to complete but rest assured that every second you spend inside is going to be filled with fun.

Hello Kitty Town – Wishful Studio

Before leaving Johor, you should pay a visit to one of Legoland’s awesome neighbours.  Just 5 km away lies another attraction that your kids would definitely want to visit. Hello Kitty Town was built to put a smile on children’s faces. For girls especially, it’s practically a dream come true.

There’s a handful of fun activities to do inside, such as a taking a tour inside Hello Kitty’s house, watch performances on the “Purrfect Stage”, spin on their “Tea Cup Rides” and many more. The best of all is probably the “Wishful Studio”; where we get to create our own Hello Kitty themed souvenirs such as the Hello Kitty Handkerchiefs and Hello Kitty Cookies!

Thomas Town

Hello Kitty town might not sound that appealing to the boys but thankfully there’s another famous town that is just upstairs! Thomas Town is located on the top floor of the building and they have more rides compared to Hello Kitty Town, such as the Knapford Station Thomas Train Ride, Colin Crane Drop ride, Bertie the Bus and many more. You’ll definitely have fun when experiencing the Bumping Buffers Steamies Diesels Ride aka bumper cars!

Other Characters – Barney Live Show

The fun doesn’t stop there, there’s also other characters such as Angelina Ballerina, Pingu, Bob The Builder and Barney. Throughout the day, there are live performances on every level so your little ones can meet all their favourite characters. Children have the chance to sing, dance and interact with characters that they usually see on TV. What a treat!

Since tickets for Hello Kitty Town and Thomas Town + Other Characters are sold separately, we suggest that if you prefer more rides and other interactive activities, Thomas Town + Other Characters would be a more suitable choice. However, we recommended that you obtain the “All Park Access” so your children won’t miss out on any of their favourite characters.

Here are some friendly tips to make your trip easier:

1.Buy your tickets online to avoid waiting in line.

2. If possible, use your own transport so you’ll be in full control of your activities.

3. Arrive early.

4. Bring water bottles, snacks, hats and hand-fans.

5. Visit the souvenir stores as the last stop to avoid extra baggage.

6. Bring EXTRA clothes in Legoland because there’s going to be some water games.

Book your tickets now and get ready for the time of your life!

Fun things to do in Brunei

Brunei is located on a north seashore of a island of a outlandish island of Borneo, surrounded totally by a South Asia Sea and Sarawak. Brunei isn’t accurately a renouned traveller end though that is since they have not detected what there is to see and do! The 4 many renouned places that people will dump by during while in Brunei are:

Ulu Temburong National Park

brunei-oerwoud

The jungles of Brunei are an glorious captivate by itself. Over 80% of Brunei is still pure jungle, that is a good square of news for inlet lovers. Take a step behind in time during a Ulu Temburong National Park as we try a pleasing pure forests. Make your approach by lush, thick jungle and we might be rewarded with a transparent clear, cold waterfall. One instance is a Jalan Dadap Waterfall where we can usually take a drop and suffer a sounds of a H2O and a timberland – an intensely tranquilizing sourroundings given a deficiency of crowds during these inlet spots.

Tasek Lama

brunei-waterval

Those who cite not to mangle into a persperate hiking can revisit Tasek Lama. The park is located right in a center of Bandar Seri Begawan, a collateral city. The park is a good approach to see a provision of a locals as they come for their morning exercise. Monkeys loaf a drift of a park, so be clever of your belongings. Walk by a park and suffer a peace of a atmosphere, spasmodic punctuated by a sound of descending H2O from a circuitously synthetic waterfalls. Tasek Lama is also an ideal place for families as it has several playgrounds all around a park.

Kampung Ayer

brunei-waterdorp

If Venice is too many out of your range, afterwards a Venice of a East is something we can go to while we are in Brunei. Kampung Ayer, literally definition ‘water village’, is South East Asia’s largest floating village. Take a vessel opposite a stream and we will see how a locals go about vital in houses on stilts. There are schools, a glow station, a military station, shops, restaurants and a mosque to support to a needs of a 30,000 villagers who live this H2O village. After cruising around a villages, ask your boatman to take we serve down a stream to try throwing a glance of a beak gorilla that is usually autochthonous to Borneo.

Muara and Berakas Beaches

If we are one who loves barbecues, we will notice that a locals share your gusto for charring their food too! Barbecues are renouned in Brunei generally during a Muara and Berakas Beaches, a dual many renouned spots to go for a day in a sun. The beaches are also good for some treading in a H2O or a diversion of ultimate Frisbee or soccer.

In Brunei, we will see many barbeques going on. This is since barbeque is a unequivocally renouned cooking form in Brunei. So once here, take some time and join a locals during a open barbeque grounds! Muara Beach and Berakas Beach are dual renouned places where we can go and barbeque some food and join a locals in a diversion of ultimate Frisbee or soccer.

brunei-moskee

No revisit to Brunei is finish if we don’t revisit their mosques. The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin mosque, also famous as a floating mosque, is breath-taking when illuminated adult during night. The Jame’Asr Hasannal Bolkieh mosque isn’t too bad itself and is really value a revisit for a architectural beauty and design. Plan your revisit to coincide outward a request times as these houses of ceremony will be quieter then. Do dress modestly when entering these places.

If we are looking for a holiday where many of it is spent celebration in bars, afterwards Brunei is not a place for you. In fact, do not splash in open even if we are a non-Muslim. However, if we are looking for a relaxing holiday, spent mostly sightseeing and removing adult tighten with nature, afterwards Brunei should be in your bucket list.

Char Kway Teow

Char Kway Teow

‘Char Kway Teow’ or ‘stir-fried ricecake strips’ is arguably one of a many renouned dishes among Malaysians of all races. The name is subsequent from a Hokkien tenure for ‘fried’ that is ‘char, while ‘kway teow’ refers to a ‘flat rice noodles’, that is a categorical ingredient. The latter is stir-fried over really high feverishness with light or dim soy sauce, chili, while prawns, deshelled cockles, bean sprouts, chinese chives and eggs. Among a chinese community, a burn kway teow is traditionally stir-fried in pig fat with frail croutons of pig lard and offer on a square of banana root or plate. In some instances, slices of chinese sausage and fishcake are combined to intensify a taste.

Originally recognised as a bad man’s food, mostly consumed by laborers, farmers, fishermen and cockle-pickers, a plate has currently developed into one of a most-loved dishes among Malaysians – though with certain mixture wanting to belong to ‘halal’ discipline of muslim community. As a plate became some-more widespread, many cooks have come adult with their possess versions of ‘char kway teow’ though with a same essential mixture ‘Char kway teow’ was pronounced to have a origins in S.E.Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei) though a common accord is that ‘Penang burn kway teow’ tops a list when it comes to ambience and originality. In Kampar, Perak, a plate is baked with cockles though no prawns, unless on request. In East Malaysia, other mixture are used in a cooking eg beef, onions, honeyed soya salsa etc. There are also supposed ‘gourmet versions’ of burn kway teow, generally in Ipoh, Penang, Taiping and even a Klang Valley, where seafood, crab beef and even steep eggs are combined to fit perceptive tastes.
