Lakeland Maize Maze

Today my family and I went to the Lakeland Maize Maze with three other Malaysian families. It is situated near Lake District. We went to the car boot sales first, of course, and Ilyas managed to buy himself Power Rangers videos and DVDs, a Digimon toy, a Bionicle toy and several Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Sarah got herself few shirts (one of them is a Burberry bought at 50 pence!) and several toys too. My wife got some Kenwood travelling steam iron, a Levis jean and other stuff. I bought myself several DVDs (special edition of Reservoir Dogs and Final Fantasy, and a complete collection of Taken) and a hard cover Hannibal Rising at 1 pound. There were actually two giant car boot sales in that area (Carnforth) but since our inital plan is to visit Lakeland Maze, we had to forego the other one. Maybe next weekend, hehe.

Lakeland Maze itself is an interesting place to visit and bring your family. I've already uploaded several videos in Ilyas and Maisarah YouTube account. Their main attraction is of course their corn maze which is quite huge. Every year they designed a different maze. The first two years were in the shape of a farmer and his dog, and a pig. This year they created a tractor maze and a mini maze in a shape of a corn. We decided to take a mini maze challenge because the main maze will takes about 1 1/2 hours to finish. I think we spent half an hour on a mini maze. At the end of the day, the kids enjoyed themselves to the fullest and that's what important.
