Lego is such a classic toy / hobby for people of all age. Lego has been around ever since I could remember. I remember my cousin Aouie loved collecting them and wouldn't let us play with it for fear that we might break it or lose the parts. I totally don't take that against her. I would have done the same. I guess this makes us the same as "the man upstairs". (You'll get what I mean if you've seen The Lego Movie;-)
Lego is not just a toy for kids or a hobby for master builders. But it's a great bonding activity for the whole family! This, paired with a delicious Sunday buffet brunch? That's definitely an ideal and fun way to spend a relaxing Sunday. And there is such a thing in the heart of Makati! It's Spectrum's Awesome Sunday Brunch! When we found out about this, we were eager to take Rain because she has also grown to love playing with Lego. Especially after she saw The Lego Movie for like 74 times. (This means we also had to watch it 74 times).
I wish I was able to take a photo of Rain's delighted expression as soon as she saw Emmet Brickowski welcoming her into Spectrum!
Lego Burgers, anyone?
More Lego desserts? Don't worry they serve real delicious food. These are just the delicious-looking display by the entrance of Spectrum.
Right beside Emmet is the Lego replica of Raffles Hotel! Lego master builders build this for around 20 days, or so I heard. Now THAT'S awesome!
We all started by chowing down on the delicious food that Spectrum has to offer.
Dim sum station
Pâté and crackers station
Fresh seafood, anyone?
Here's the beautiful sushi corner which I attacked right away!
And for a Filipino touch, lechon and paella!
Spectrum's bakers really had fun making Lego-themed desserts! It made us all feel like kids again!
They didn't only look fantastic but they were really good too! Especially the chocolates!
After dessert and after resting for a bit, the kids were given stubs for the Lego play room at the 2nd floor. It's a room with 2 sets of Lego play tables and lots and lots of Lego bricks.
And beside it is a whole table of Lego collections starting from Duplo (Lego for toddlers)...
all the way up to the normal collector Legos. These are all for sale for a discounted price!
Here I am helping Rain make her Lego farm
Ooops! Getting distracted with The Lego Movie that was playing hehe
Tadaaaa! After your little one is finished making her Lego creation, the Lego staff will snap a photo to make this moment everlasting! And after they take your photo, they will give a cool Lego gift pack for your little ones! This makes the Sunday Brunch rate per head rate worth it!
Rain definitely had fun playing Lego with other kids. I actually had to pry her away from the room because we needed to leave. (Sorry sweetie!)
The Awesome Sunday Brunch happens every Sunday for the months of February and March 2015. Adult rate is P2,777++, and children between 6-12 get 50% Off! Thank you Raffles for this truly AWESOME SUNDAY BRUNCH!!!
