Achievement Unlocked!

Three years ago, I attended my first Brickfast and was completely overwhelmed by the number of folks who share the same passion for the brick. Back then, I'm more of a minifig collector and the only thing I can do with my collection is to mix and match the parts and accessories of my minifigs (which I still do until now).

Before joining PhLUG, my only source of Lego entertainment was Since most of  the members there are foreigners, I always thought those guys were really lucky to have access to all those bricks. Also, I admired their complex builds and often wondered if there were Filipinos who could do the same. Seeing the displays of PhLUG's members during the first few Brickfasts I attended answered that question and consequently drew me closer to the group.

Nothing But Brick's Guide To PhLUG's Abrickadabra 2017

How's it going, folks?! It's been a while since I last posted something here on the blog. A lot's been going on with me for the past couple of months that's why I wasn't able to write new entries recently. 

The family and I have been going on fun trips in and out of the city to make the most out of the remaining weeks of the kids' break. I also had to attend a couple of occasions hosted by amazing friends which kept me fully booked for a couple of weekends. Also, my band Manaha had a gig recently after a long hiatus which also ate some of my time. Last but not the least, there were several new projects at work which kept me on my toes and made me just want to lie down on the bed every time I come home. Anyway, it seems things have gone back to normal and now, I have time again to blog. By the way, I have been putting up some neat stuff at Nothing But Brick's Instagram account while I took a break from blogging so make sure to check them out. Here's the link: On with the show!

Summer vacation's about to end and it's a real bummer. Let's end the season with a bang by going to the ultimate Lego convention this summer, Abrickadabra 2017! Hosted by PhLUG, Abrickadabra 2017 will showcase hundreds of MOCs built by the group's skilled builders. Lego creations from various themes ranging from city, medieval, fantasy, space and vehicles will be on display at the event and would surely entertain both kids and kids at heart. There's also some neat stuff in store for Star Wars, DC and Marvel fans so watch out for that! Aside from the awesome displays, the sellers of the PhLUG Brick Stores will be setting up shop. It's the best opportunity to land amazing deals on bricks and figs.

This will be my third Abrickadabra so allow me to give you several tips on how to enjoy the event fully. While you're at it, check out the pics from last year's Abrickadabra.
