Brunei Usergroup Individual Lego Display 2013

The second Brunei Usergroup Individual Lego Display (BUILD 2013) was held recently at the Holiday Lodge Hotel on the 5th November 2013 7pm - 10pm, a day earlier than expected.  Eleven BULAT members were invited by the Admin Team to display their Lego.
There were eleven displays total:
Lord of the Rings - Khairul Hazmi
1000 minifigures - Hadi Nasir
Galaxy Squad - Novelty Nostalgia
Exoforce - Halim Jaafar
Ninjago Dragons - Frederick Chan
Vikings - Novelty Nostalgia
Pirate Ships - Frederick Chan
Rainbow City - Jet Lee
Architecture - Philip Chan
Mini Brunei Buildings - Ampuan Hamid
City Harbour - Nazri Ramli & Yumni Hamdani
City scene & Trains - Zulfadli Bakar & Novelty Nostalgia
During the event, there was also a Pick-a-Brick table where visitors could purchase bricks by the piece for extremely reasonable prizes.  Generally it was a good time for the BULAT members to meet up, to talk and discuss all things Lego and to 'racun' (poison) each other into areas of Lego that they may not have realised existed in Lego.  The public was also invited to the event and quite a few of them turned up.  It was a good evening for all who attended.
