I am and will always be a kid at heart.. I have too much of Peter Pan syndrome in me.. and thus there are many a times I can be more excited than even my kids who will be rolling their eyes at me… but well, who cares, I am me and I like to live my life the best I can…
Having grown up on playing LEGO, which was I think my favorite toy since I could build spaceships, houses etc…and watching Star Wars all my life… It is euphoric knowing that LEGOLAND® is going to hold their LEGO® Star Wars™ Days 2017 again and it is going to be of EPIC PROPORTIONS.
I missed out on last year’s and I am so NOT gonna miss out this year’s… hopefully..
So come on, let’s pack our bags head over to LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort for their largest LEGO® Star Wars™ Days celebrations yet.
Did you know it is the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars… huhuhu… sweet dreams were built on Princess Leia and Hans Solo all those years ago and of course.. who can resist an ewok or two as well as the adorable Chewbacca, R2D2 and 3CPO , but well, over the years, they have add on more interesting characters as well such as Rey, Finn, etc, etc…
Anyway, LEGOLAND® is pulling out all the stops to make their annual LEGO® Star Wars™ Day one you will not forget with the largest Star Wars™ May the 4th celebrations in the region.
The LEGO® Star Wars™ Days 2017 will run the course of 34 days and across 5 weekends (28 April-31 May) with countless exciting and entertaining daily activities for everyone in the whole family.
