Building a Loving SG

We didn’t manage to get tickets for the 47th National Day Celebrations this year. But we’ll be represented by LEGO versions of ourselves on a Marina Bay Floating Platform replica made from 200,000 LEGO bricks and LEGO figures!

With a minimum donation of $5, you get to customise a pair of LEGO figures. One will be placed on the seating gallery of the Building a Loving SG structure, while the other is a keepsake. All proceeds will go to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.

I brought Anya to JCube on Friday evening to create our LEGO family. She chose all the heads and the outfits for the figures. If you look at our LEGO family, you’ll see that she picked the same face for herself and her Daddy which is very fitting since they look so alike! She also chose a cap for her brother instead of hair because he’s clearly lacking in that particular department.

I wanted to put our LEGO family in the front row of the seating gallery so that they’d be easier to spot but she had other plans and insisted on placing them in the middle of nowhere. She actually wanted to put our keepsake set of LEGO figures on the stands as well so I quickly sneaked them into my bag when she wasn’t looking.

come join us!

The Building a Loving SG roadshows are being held at Funan DigitaLife Mall, Tampines Mall, Bugis Junction and JCube until 9pm today (24 June). We won’t be attending the National Day Parade in the flesh but we will be there in spirit!
