LUG of Malaysia’s Heritage and Cultural Event is Now Open!

LOM MY 60 MY LEGO BUILD

As some of you have already known, I made a trip up to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur at the start of the week to check out the LUG of Malaysia‘s (LOM) “MY 60 MY LEGO BUILD” event.

This massive display of MOCs reflecting their country’s culture and heritage is to celebrate Malaysia’s Merdeka day, also known as their Independence Day from the British Empire.

There are twenty beautiful LEGO models depicting various landmarks from across the country like the iconic Christ Church in Melaka to the lush gardens of Tai ping lake.

There are some really interesting dioramas like the “Jalan Jalan Kari Makan” by Brandon which loosely translates to “walk around find good food“. It features a cacophony of hawker stalls arranged in such a manner that makes it immensely interesting to pour over. It reminds me of the LEGO Ninjago City but with a Malaysian theme.

The largest display measures 1.8m across which is the beautiful LEGO rendition of the Ipoh Railway Station by Winston.

Needless to say, if you are in the area, do drop in and check it out as photos does little justice for these awesome builds that should be seen in person.
