Lego Exhibition : World Heritage Sites

Facebook Page: Piece of Peace World Tour Singapore 2017

The other day, I visited this exhibition that showcases World Heritage Sites made with LEGO® Bricks.

At first, when my friend texted me that she was going (with another friend) to a Lego exhibition, I was very skeptical because honestly, Lego doesn’t sound very interesting to me. She also didn’t tell me the theme of the exhibition, so I assumed that they were just some pretty Lego models that won’t be worth me paying for entrance and travelling to Fort Canning Arts Centre (very far from my house).

I shrugged it off and intended to go for the Singapore Coffee Festival instead, which sounds way more interesting… at least I get to enjoy creative coffee beverages?? (Sidetrack: I thought this was going to last a week but I misread the event dates! So I missed the Singapore Coffee Festival 2017! I have to wait for next year’s. Sigh.)

BUT, she posted 10 pictures on Instagram. 1) She usually does not update her IG, so I thought, it must be quite intriguing; 2) When I saw those pictures, I knew I had to go and see for myself.

The very next day, I spent an hour finding my way to Fort Canning Arts Centre. On entering, I didn’t see huge crowds, which is a huge relief because I’d definitely hate to squeeze with rowdy kids and annoying tourists with their DSLR’s in a confined space. Instead, I saw very impressive and intricate models of the World’s Heritage Sites.

** All these pictures are unfiltered and unedited, and quite true to the real colours of these models. **

These are just 16 out of almost 200 pics snapped at the exhibition. There are more pieces than this but the photos I took do not do the real works justice at all. I blame the lighting hahaha. My favourite 2 are the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy) and the Saint Basil’s Cathedral (Moscow / Russia)!

Great Week

When God closes a door on you, he will open a window for you.

If only you are willing to turn your head away from that closed door and change your direction, you will see from the window that the world is bigger than you think. There is more than one way to get what you want.

God gives you an answer in 3 ways: “Yes” and gives you what you want; “No” and gives you something better; or “Wait” and gives you the best.

If being with the wrong person can feel so good, just imagine how it could feel with the right one.
