    Last night I attended the LCS pre-opening VIP night event together with 10 local AFOLs in Shanghai. The LCP in HK, Andy Hung has brought three of his masterpieces to celebrate the store opening which are two iconic buildings of Shanghai, a few eastern style modular houses and a mosaic Shanghai skyline. They will be permanently displayed at the store until further notice, so don’t miss them if you have the chance to come by.

    The event started at sharp 7pm, when LCP, AFOLs and a few invited kids built the LEGO keys to open the door of LCS. Once everybody was in, a group of store staff performed a dance show which is very entertaining and indeed energetic. The store manager gave a short speech to welcome all attendees and revealed the breathtaking work with Andy. Everybody was amazed and cannot even move their eyes away from it.

    A highlight of the night was when a 4th-grade boy shyly pulled over one of the AFOLs and asked about how to build up his LEGO parts collection and build better MOCs. Isn’t that exactly how the AFOLs inspiring the builders of tomorrow? As least I see an enthusiastic young TFOL is arising.

    Thanks for all AFOLs who spared their personal time in the evening to participate this VIP night event, I believe they all had a great time and get their purse ready for the official opening this Saturday.

    Almost forget, two events teaser from Asia:

    First, I’m exciting to share that this year’s Japan Brickfest (Kobe Fan Weekend) is going to be a blast! More than 270 AFOLs from 10 countries (approx. 70 of them will be travelling from out of Japan) have registered for the event. The organizer has to find another hall to suffice the needs due to the increasing AFOL participants. How amazing! I really look forward to meeting everybody in June at this event. Spoiler Alert: Tanja will be there as well! J

    Second, a group of Chinese AFOLs is planning for a secret event in Shanghai this summer. It aims at gathering most of the talented local AFOLs for the very first time to showcase their MOCs, have parties, do workshops, run contests and most importantly inspire one another for their LEGO hobby. Unfortunately that’s all I could disclose for the moment, I believe the Chinese ambassadors will be able to share more on LAN when time comes closer. Do let them know if there is any interest to visit or exhibit.

    That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend and don’t put your hands away from the bricks!
