#Day 6: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS Japan, LAST FASHION BAZAAR

We were all set for this EGG-CITING and THRILLING day!

Fyi on Universal Studios Japan, the official website : http://www.usj.co.jp/e/

This is like a dream come true. I conquered yet another famous themed park in the world.

The map of Universal Studios Osaka. –the one back home definitely can’t win the fight. 

IMG_5881Look! The queue was massive, and it was only about 9am in the morning.

But I like how they can queue up in such an orderly manner.

First step into the park and we were welcome by Elmo and friends! Lucky~ ^^

Me and Maxine went to take our first ride. – Hollywood Dream.

Its a thrilling roller coaster that you can have a choice to choose your favourite music to play. –Trust me, end up, you only hear screams. And it is a super long ride as it goes up and down, all around the whole park! #thrilling

Well, Jess and Jo didn’t dare to take on the rides so they waited for us at the pink panther cafe.

We managed to catch some glimpse of the Parade, but other than that, we were actually heading off rides to rides.

So, the next ride in line was ‘The Amazing Adventures of SpiderMan’.

IMG_1755 IMG_1756 IMG_1761

As you can see, the design and features of the ride are similar to the one in USS. – The Transformers ride

I would say its exactly the same, except the fact that the 3D images is Spiderman instead.

We walked to the Sesame Street and spotted Elmo and Cookie Monster! Oh, Dream Factory is literally loaded with Sesame Street Items. Well, this is special initially, but now that USS has it as well, it’s just too over-rated. IMG_5980 IMG_0325

Subsequently, we took on more rides such as ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Jaws- boat ride’.

We're on the boat ride!

The last station was Snoopy’s world, more for the kids but Jo was already screaming on their mini roller coaster! LOL!

Friends of Snoopy.

We were limited to 6 hours in the park only, considering the fact that we managed to take all the rides… we were pretty fast eh?

Snooopy!
Snooopy!

When you visit a foreign country, what’s the place you die die must go? SOUVENIR BOUTIQUES- Duhh! Typical tourists here.

And of course, some picture shopping.  A photo of the items are good enough to be considered as bought.

I was pretty fortunate to bump into the toy soldiers and betty boop!

I prefer this Betty Boop than the one back home! This one is more real, to me.

Snoopy BAO!

It’s kinda sad that because it is winter, we cant take the Jurassic Park ride. The water will prolly freeze us. Oh well~

Yet another long haul bus ride to a shopping centre. WE reached our destination in the evening when the sky was almost turning dark.

There was a pets’ shop at the end of the shopping centre, and grooming the pets’ was actually open to public to view!

IMG_1868

Look at the professional groomers, handling the dogs at ease!

IMG_1870

The cutest moment came when all the dogs on sale were PUPPIES!!!!!

IMG_1876 IMG_1875 IMG_1880 IMG_1885 IMG_1887 IMG_1888

So I managed to buy some souvenirs back home.

Best buy: The stitch dog house.

For the last night, we stayed at Washington hotel. Kimono was provided and they had a 24/7 Family mart.

A mini party was thrown in Jo and Jess’s room, where we end up drinking and talking cock through the night before our morning flight the next day.

#Day 7: We’re coming Home. 

It was a dreading morning flight back home. Had a tiff but peace after.

Transfer flight at Hong Kong makes me wanna just get out of the Arrival Hall and meet dad! So near yet so far. :/

Memories of this trip live forever. 

As we seek for more from the world, till then~ Sayonara!
