I was so glad to have had experience and witness the huge 18X30 Philippine map all made of colorful LEGO bricks. I was privileged to attend the launching of “LEGO Pilipinas, Tara Na” the first ever LEGO Filipino-theme event in the Philippines.It aims to promote the wonders of the Philippines and celebrate Filipino ingenuity. Together with the support Department of Tourism (DOT) the event was successful, attended by the DOT Secretary Alberto Lim, the exclusive distributer of the LEGO brandLAJ Philippines President Patrick Pesengco, The Picture Company,Mommy Mundo, Creative Juice Communications,SM Toy Kingdom, and SM Mall of Asia executives
As the music (Tara Na Byahe Tayo) plays the red cloth was then unveiled the beauty of Philippines meticulously made by the LEGO team. The people was so amazed on how the map made of LEGO bricks was formed and cameras never stop from clicking around the area. It was a job well done.
LEGO believes that the Philippines is not just about its wonderful places but also about the great people who continue to shine all over the world and contribute to our community.That’s why you can also see a photo exhibit beside the map of people who inspire others to do the same presented in “Ang Ganda ng Pilipinas, Ang Galing ng Pilipino”.Had to put this in.. My friend Janice was one of the of the subjects of the photo exhibit.
