hello (: 

so , i went to 


yesterday with my mother ! ;DD 
it was quite cool , left house at 9am plus ? then took bus and mrt there . at habourfront mrt there , had the bus called RW 8 i think . then the seats were purple and blue ! heh , actually its just a normal bus . but i was just so cool . crossed the bridge thing to RWS . could see the far far away castle already ! but didn't take photo of it ... 

yay ! then finally reached there ! ;DD this is the entrance , got the globe globe thingy . so i took photo of it when it finally stopped at "UNIVERSAL" cos that globe spins . so i was standing there smiling like a dummy or something :P until my mother finally took one nice photo with the word at the correct position . 

ahh ! finally inside ;DD the entrance was HOLLYWOOD . all the hollywood stuffs . i don't like the design of the ticket . not cute one ): disneyland's was cuter . haha . 

once we got in , we saw FRANKENSTEIN already ! ;DD he's so tall , i want his height BADLY . i was like , HELLO ! hee .  
but the place was so darned small  . hollywood only had one attraction , which was the "Pantages Hollywood Theater" , which is a musical show featuring monsters . i went to watch that afterwards cos they had fixed showtimes . so we headed to MADAGASCAR ! ;DD went to the kiddy ride "King Julien's Beach Party-Go-Round" which is just a carousel . 

the place was again , so small ! the other attraction was "Madagascar: A Crate Adventure" which we didn't sit cos i couldn't find it :P so went to FAR FAR AWAY ! ;DD  

queued up for the "SHERK 4-D Adventure" 

went into the castle , had all those decorations along the walkways ...

then the queues were so complicated . i was the first person of the second batch of people to watch the show , so i kinda lead the way for the whole crowd behind . it was like a maze . scary . haha . went in and watched . at first we went to this small room , they gave intro and stuffs , i was like , IS THIS IT ? but after that , lead us to the cinema thingy and put on our 3D glasses and stuff . the seats moved when shrek was galloping on the horse an stuff . then water splashed at us , and the worst thing of all - the screen had 3D large spiders crawling to us , and then under our seats , "spiders" tickled out legs . it was horrible . but so cool too . it was very real . then we heard children crying . LOL . 

came out , when to sit "Magic Potion Spin" , which is a ferris wheel . it was so low . even if the carriage dropped ,  we wouldn't die . it was located in the Fairy Godmother's Potion Shop . 

after the ride , when to take photo with DONKEY which was located in the shop . looked around for souvenirs , not very suitable . wanted to buy the fairy godmother's potion bottle which is like this plastic bottle that looks like a chemistry beaker . but it was like , 10 over bucks for a plastic bottle . so decided not to . i would probably throw that thing away after drinking the "potion" inside too . hee . 
then went to eat at "Friar's" which was located at Far Far Away too . my mother ate this chicken wrap thingy . i went to order a kids meal cos i don't like wraps . too much veggies . so i ordered this chicken thing . it's like , everything was branded with "UNIVERSAL STUDIOS SINGAPORE" , the cup for the soft drinks , the aluminum foil , EVERYTHING . surprisingly the food there was priced quite reasonably . like , me and my mother's set was both $8.80 , which fries and stuff . i even had this lunchbox thingy . HEE . it's so childish . but still ... then we ordered this fried prawns thingy . haha , after that i went to buy PRINCESS FIONA'S SOFT SERVE ICE CREAM . the cone is green , cos she's a GREEN ORGE . hee , so cute . it's quite BIG , i tell u . for 3 bucks , it's quite worth it ;DD I LIKE ICE CREAM . 

then went to ANCIENT EGYPT afterwards . took a picture with this guy . he looks scary . 
we didn't really sit any rides here . YET . then went to NEW YORK ! i got no idea why this GREEK god or something was in NEW YORK . out of place . haha , i think he's Hercules . it seems like he's carrying the world . u know ? one of his 12 labours by Eurytheus ? so i guess it's him . 
just some street shots of NEW YORK ;DD

went to watch "Lights , Camera , Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg" it was damn cool okay ? it was like , ALL the cool effects right in front of us . so now i realised that those cool effects in movies is NOT computer generated . u know ? like storms , fires , toppling of buildings and stuffs are ALL real ! it's all in the set . 

then EVERYTHING was linked , and i got back to the HOLLYWOOD place again . it's like SO SMALL . singapore is really damn good of knowing how to make places look big . haha . 

then i saw PO , from Kung Fu panda ! ;DD decided to take a photo with him . i wanted to hug him , so i did . haha , and he hugged back ! he didn't do that to other people , maybe cos they just stood there . it must be cos i'm popular with bears ! ;DD i mean , i have so many teddy bears :P he's so cuddly . 

went to Madagascar again ...

then i saw the FROG PRINCE in FAR FAR AWAY ! ;DD took a photo with it . and behind him , there were many frogs ! they all looked so real . 
went to Ancien Egypt again ! ;DD 

and back to Madagascar . i wanted to take photo with this penguin , but it was running away already . hahaa . 

then went back to Far Far Away and watched "Donkey LIVE!" this is the picture of one of those small rooms u go before u get in to the "REAL SHOW" 
anyway , the show is damn cool . the donkey was actually in the big movie screen , but it can interact with us . we can ask it questions and stuff , and it actually answers ! it's so cool . 

then went to THE LOST WORLD , which is the Jurassic Park thingy . went to queue up for the "Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure" . wore poncho , cos we would get wet . like , REALY WET . it's the circle circle float which can take 12 people . it slide down waters . at first it wasn't scary . but i was sitting at the unlucky position where all the water just gushes in . other people didn't even get wet :/ then we went through this dark tunnel which dinosaurs and stuffs . then suddenly , the float was lifted up in the dark . it went up , up , up and suddenly , there was this quite steep slide ? at we were like , WHOOOOOSH . i got DAMN wet . but it's quite fun . 

then went to ancient egypt again ! ;DD
decided to ride the "Revenge of the Mummy" which is an indoor roller coaster in darkness . the roller coasted plunger down from 3 stories high , there were quite a lot of visual effects , then it went backwards , forwards , up , down , it tilted , and it even dropped . i screamed but it was quite fun .  then i looked at my mother during the ride . she looked SHAKEN . terribly SHAKEN . after the ride , she became all weak , and couldn't walk . she has erm , high blood pressure . she felt like vomiting and her face was all pale . then we went to sit "Treasure Hunters" , which is just this slow jeep around the place . so she rest inside the jeep . 

but she still felt weak and stuff . so she rest for about half an hour before she could walk . LOL , all because of that roller coaster . we decided to skip dinner , cos both of us were still so full . then many people started coming into the theme park , cos after 7pm on fridays and sundays , admission is only $5 , but u can only dine , and shop . but good enough for them , cos they can still take photos and stuff . but they're only limited to go to HOLLYWOOD only . 

took a photo of the castle (:

then my mother went to rest while i went to look for souvenirs . i went to buy the Oscar awards trophy  thingy for EMILY KHOO . u had better thank me . haha . but only got the small ones . so i bought one "world's greatest friend" . it's darn small . at first only have "world's greatest mum/dad/son/daughter" then i went to search like crazy . only have one , so i quickly bought it for $9.90 (: then bought retarded pack of poker cards and luggage tag thingy . and i bought a really cheap pop up fan thingy for only $1.90 . then also bought a keychain for $8.90 . i think it's quite nice . 
and lastly , i bought a cap ! i think it's really nice . it's not like those caps which just wrote "UNIVERSAL STUDIOS SINGAPORE" and got that globe thingy . but it's quite cool . it's black and the words are silver . they are all below . haha . and there's the plastic bag in the middle . i think it's quite cute . i like the plastic bag . i have 3 , hee hee . 

then it was like , 8.30pm already . went to buy an ice cream for 2 bucks . outside sell for like , 70 cents or something . then also bought a bottle of HEAVEN & EARTH apple tea for 3 bucks . daylight robbery , but nevermind . haha . the shop also sold the gingerbread man from shrek ! ;DD hee , he was selling for $5.50 . didn't buy it ): seriously , i have never eaten  a gingerbread man before i my life .

whoa , i was in Universal studios for exactly 10 hours . CRAZY . but nice ! i love it . hope to go there again sometime (: it's small , but singapore really did a fabulous job . they had water coolers , restrooms , fans , shelters , seats EVERYWHERE . there are small little things , but they make the whole place cooling . UNLIKE singapore's weather . but maybe cos yesterday's weather was perfect . it was raining like , in the wee hours yesterday . then when i got there , it was sunny but cooling (: 

I'M PROUD OF BEING A SINGAPOREAN . cos we are so smart :P 
gosh , this is so cliche

zaijian .
