A construction set is a set of standardized pieces that allow for the construction of a variety of different models. The pieces avoid the lead time of manufacturing custom pieces, and of requiring special training or design time to construct complex systems. This makes them suitable for temporary structures, or for use as children's toys. Such as Lego, Mega bloc, Playmobil, Kre-o etc...

Gifts from Aunties!!!

Although my birthday had passed for almost 2 weeks and Miranda’s was a few days ago, we still managed to have a bday lunch gathering with our lovely cooking class classmates along with our teacher Joseph.  The pictures below are the gifts, of course I love all of them because most are totally my taste :p, anyways, have to thank Corolla, didn’t really expect you would get me another transformer lego and the “The world’s hottest Chilli sauce” haha  Queenie, for those lovely stuffs from Hong Kong and the miniature birthday cake that she made 😀  Miranda, for the Chinese herbal tea 😀

A Gift for me :p

I was at Toysrus looking for a gift for Issac and I found this.  When I saw it I was like Woah…  It is a brand that I had never heard of but WOAH transformer man!!!  This bumblebee I got is like a medium size, they do have different once, big/small and tons of variety.  I am almost tempted to get more but umm…  well, I am 39 today, so I better not to get too many toys and invest the money into something else :p  Doesn’t mean I don’t want toy tho, just less :p  If you are interested in these, go toysrus and see if you can find the one you like 😀

My lego(s)

This is a follow up post of http://www.karlng.com/blog/?p=3867

After I bought that huge motorized excavator lego about 2 week ago, I couldn’t really resist to put it together last weekend.  I remember I started at about 3 pm and finished at about 4 am non stop.  I assumed I would have had to spend at least 2 days but it took me less than a day, so it was way faster than I expected.  Tell you the truth, it was very very tiring really but it was super fun 😀  AND the next day, I took apart of my old 3 in 1 lego, it was put together as a motorized spider, yea, a spider (most of my friends would be surprised) :p  then I rebuild it to a motorized walking Dino 😀  Oh oh, did I mention bother sets are Remote controlled, hehe  :p  A friend asked me and thought I quit my plastic model hobby already, well, the answer is no but seriously, putting together lego blocks is much much easier than putting together plastic models, at least I don’t have to cut and paint :p  Anyways, have a look at my achievement below 😀

What would I do when I get my paycheck?

TOYS!!!  Went out with Karen, Simon and little Marcus for the whole Saturday.  Started in the morning, went to take a look at the tiles for their kitchen backslash in the Vaughan area, then spent 3 hrs in idea after that, then went to Toysrus as the parents promised and I saw LEGOs on sale!!!  Oh man, I blame the little guy for asking us to go there, little evil…   Well, I didn’t really expect to buy it but it was $60 off the original price, as most of the people know, $60 off a LEGO is really a lot, so I bought it :p  Here is a picture of my achievement 😀
