A trip to Legoland

The last two weeks is a little of a 'waiting' torture. We have a two weeks off from various class because it is assessment weeks and therefore, right after Monday presentation, we have nothing. However, we are booked into workshop to enable us to work on our projects. So, I grabbed the opportunity to go into the workshop to seek help for completing my rough model. Before that, I've been into the workshop few times but it was terrible experience. The technician is helpful, no doubt, and friendly. However, they are TOO VERY THE BUSY! I've been kept waiting the whole morning just to complete a small mould which will only take about 30 minutes. The technician are all busy with the undergraduates deadlines. So, since these two weeks the undergraduates are having their term break, I was hoping I could complete my model quickly. However, luck was not with me. There are a few times when I couldn't find anyone to help me. The workshop is empty. Empty of students, empty of technician as well. Go figure. Two whole weeks to complete this.

My sketch model



Enough of my project. 

Now, LegoLand!

Went to Legoland at Windsor on Saturday and it was a lot of fun. We don't get on a lot of rides since we don't have much time and most of it is for kiddies but everything is very pretty and fun! Lego is everywhere. 

Wake up at 5.45am. Meet everyone at 6.30am. Reach train station at 7am. Our train departs at 7.28am.

From Nottingham to London St Pancras International to Windsor & Eton Riverside

However, due to some mishaps, we travel to London St Pancras to Paddington to Slough only to Windsor  =.="

Finally reach Windsor at around 11pm. This is the Windsor Castle behind us. 

Was at Buckingham Palace last Christmas but did not get to see changing guards. However, we saw the return of these guards while waiting for the bus to Legoland. ^_^ 

Can see them so much clearer here

Finally, we are here. 

Was so excited to see everything Lego. Everything is colourful, bright, fun, happy.....

The famous Lego man!

So excited to see them everywhere.
