Legoland Johor

We finally make time to bring the kids to Legoland, Johor.  We went on Sunday, not too many people on that day, and Thank God the weather is good too, not too hot coz its a bit hazy on that day.

We reach the entrance about 9.20am, at 9.30am the gate is open for the Lego Hotel customer, others have to wait until 10am (haiya, I didn't know that the Lego Hotel has this privilege!)

So here's map and the list of attractions that we visited in sequence order..

Boating school (59)
Legoland Express (61)

Lego City airport.

LEGO® Ninjago LIVE show: The Realm of Shadows - 35 minutes show. 


Lost Kingdom Adventure (38) 
Laser blaster

Lego Studio - 15 minutes 4D show

Lego Star Wars Miniland includes a 5 minutes Star wars movie; LEGO Star Wars™ models and iconic scenes from all six episodes and the Star Wars™: The Clone Wars™ animated series.
Bought Star Wars glow-in-the-dark t-shirt there.
Aquazone
Lunch at the King's Grill
Build & Test - where we spent most of out time


Land of Adventure - The Lost World

We did not take any roller coaster ride, as  none of us are keen on riding it.

Our map reader and the decision maker of the day except for 2 attractions:
Mummy choose Ninjago Live show and Eugene choose Star Wars miniland.

Batu Kawa Old Town Mooncake Carnival

Today is the last chance for you to visit this inaugural Mooncake Carnival at Old Town Batu Kawa.

I went there last Thursday, not bad, almost similar to Siniawan weekend market.  We went early to get a good parking spot.

Here's how the town looks like..

Here's what goes into my stomach..

Crispy apam - RM1, cincau and sago C - RM2, Chai Kueh 5 for RM3; and many more that I didn't get to capture on my phone.

When we left, more and more people coming, tables and chairs were being setup on the road between the shop raw.  People were parking along the road leading to the town, quite a long walk for them.  Glad we came early.

Shopping in Legoland Johor


Best gak barang kesukaan anak-anak kat Legoland ni.  Kedai banyak, option pun boleh tahan.  Kami pun tak ketinggalan membeli sedikit untuk kenangan.

Here's our shopping list in sequence order:
Lego Star Wars | bought a glow-in-the-dark shirt there.

Adventurer Depot | bought 2 Chima t-shirts there.

Ninjago city stage | bought a Ninjago fire there.

Brick shop | great for loose bricks.

Big shop | bought Lego City here.  Toys here are almost similar to those in Toys R Us, but more option in Legoland.  Price are the same, if you have a Toys R Us member card, its better to buy at Toys R Us.

The next day we went to Toys R Us in Aeon Bukit Indah Mall, this time we get more Legos - Ninjago, Airjitzu Wrayth, and another Lego City.  We make use of the kids birthday month special offer there.
Trip kali ni betul-betul la acara untuk anak-anak jer.

Princeton Hotel, Johor

Our initial plan was to stay at Granada Hotel.  We leave our booking to the very last minute, less than 1 week before the trip to be exact.  We thought that the price will not be much different since it is not during school holiday anyway.  Boy, we were wrong.  Only limited rooms were available, and huge price different than earlier.  We decided not to pay additional amount in a hotel that has neither a swimming pool nor a bathtub.  

Legoland hotel also having the renovation work to their swimming pool during the time. * Notice:
We regret to inform you that our hotel swimming pool is closed for renovation from 1st to 17th September 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Source: http://www.legoland.com.my/Hotel/

Too lazy to do anymore research, we decided to book a room where nearest to Granada Hotel, hence the Princeton Hotel.

So this is a family room in Priceton Hotel.  At 1st they gave us a room without window. Gosh, I immediately requested for another room, luckily we were moved to this room with a huge window.

This hotel has all the basic things we need.  We didn't expect much also, as long as it's clean and convenience.

All in all, we had a good stay there.

Pontian Wanton Noodle, Bukit Indah, Johor | Visit #1

1st thing that I did after landed at Senai Airport, was went to look for wanton noodle.

I've done my research beforehand and found out that 1 of the Pontian Wanton Noodle branch is located just a few steps from Princeton Hotel, Bukit Indah.
went to have my early lunch there, hubby n the kids stayed in the room coz they already had their meal in the flight, I am saving for Wanton mee.

So, I ordered a medium size Wanton noodle, cost RM6.50.  Very generous portion, I can hardly finish it.  The noodle is more to sweet side.  Not the best that I have tasted but enough to make my happy :)

I also ordered this bowl of Barley gingko nut soup, cost RM4.50.
See how it looks on the menu and how it actually looks on the table.  Taste wise, not bad.

All price exclude of GST.
