Hello! I’m back in my college now finally so I can blog all I want! Before I continue talking about Florida, a little (good) news..I returned the stuff I bought the other day HAHAHA IT’S SO TYPICAL OF ME IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY
Sigh but then I felt sad cause I didn’t wanna be like that forever so what the heck I went and bought another bag but cheaper than the first one I bought. So err..it’s all good. What I bought this entire trip: two bags (one small one for $5 yays!), a pair of shoes and a cardigan. Not bad eh!
But I spent quite a bit on food and theme parks so it’s still a pretty expensive trip for me. BUT it’s okay this is Winter break and it’s okay to spend, as long as I’m happy and I am really really happy *tells self over and over again
So back to Florida! Oh wait let me just talk about the rides I went on on the first day, just in case anyone else plans to go too.
This was a simulation ride so nothing much to describe. It was one of the better simulation rides though
We sat in a car and it went around this trail where there were aliens all around so we had to shoot them to get points. Yeah as you can tell, it was kinda boring
It was a roller coaster but try as I might, I cannot remember ANYTHING about this ride now so I guess it was quite forgettable
Ooh I liked this one! We were supposed to be the supporting cast in a disaster movie so we got to see how a movie was made etc
omg this ride was so bad…they put you in a room and show you how it feels like when there’s a twister. I guess it wasn’t thaaat bad but compared to the rest it was just meh. The effects were kind of cool though, like all the other rides
I have NO idea why I made Barry go on this ride with me, maybe to get my money’s worth wtf but this was the worst ride in Universal. I guess maybe cause it’s sort of a kiddy ride..it’s a simulation ride
This was for kids too but it was actually pretty cool. Basically just a 3D show but it was very real!
Continuation of Day 2
We only took half a day to see most of Universal so we had time left to go to Island of Adventure!
This was where alllll the thrill rides were, FUN FUN FUN
First ride- Hulk!
This was a roller coaster and it looked pretty scary but it was actually quite mild for us
Spiderman ride was soooo bad! It was sorta an indoor 3d roller coaster except that it wasn’t scary at all
The toon lagoon, the props are so good!
This was so cute! There were a lot more of these speech bubbles around Toon Lagoon
Next ride- the Ripsaw Falls
We sat in a log (just like the one in sunway lagoon) and we had to go through a few mini plunges before the final almost 90 degree plummet down ripsaw falls! Quite good
The lost continent’s props
Poseidon’s Fury, sort of a show/tour.
The show. This was pretty cool, they brought us into a cave and pretended that we got stuck and Poseidon had to fight with some demon (the colorful thingy is actually sort of like a screen of water where they fought) and then we were freed wtf
Free alas wtf with Poseidon’s foot (i’m wearing something else here..maybe cause this is from another day wtf i’m so confused now..too many pictures!)
Seuss Landing, where all the kiddy rides were
Happy cheery colorful buildings!
Ended Day 2 with Grinch Who Stole Xmas’ show
Went dinner with Natasha and her cousins in this Jap place. Jap food + kids = all you need to make me VERY VERY HAPPY
Omg I’m only at Day 2! hahaha soooo many more pictures!
Started the day looking bright and happy!
Then we went to Jurassic Park’s River Adventure which was realllylylyllyy good! We had to sit in a log thingy and it went around Jurassic Park where there were dinosaurs etc. Then we went up higher and higher and plummeted down like the Ripsaw ride but I think this was nicer cause of the dinosaurs!
Came out wet but still happy!
Engulfed in fog and mist
Went to see the Macy’s Parade next so here we are waiting for it
The Macy’s Parade
Barry while waiting to ride JAWS (omg i’m so obsessed with his nose! damn nice ok mine so big and ugly T__T)
oh i loved this one!! We went on a boat and there was a tour guide who brought us on this ‘boat tour’ thingy and we were attacked by a shark!! Then the tour guide pretended to not know what’s going on (as if we were really on the boat tour and we were attacked by real sharks) and started shooting the sharks but they were so big and real!!! Damn cool ok
This was not too bad, it was like watching Fear Factor live with the audience as contestants and it was kinda fun!
THIS IS THE BEST RIDE EVER!!!
Dueling dragons! You get to choose a dragon- fire or ice- and they are two completely different roller coasters. You choose to ride on one and these two roller coasters actually go around each other! Damn nice ok we went on this one like 4 times until we were pretty numbed to it. Sat front row too!
End of Day 3!
How ah should I continue with Day 4?
Ok I will! To make up for all the days I didn’t blog =D Actually I didn’t take a lot of pictures on day 4.
Started the day making sandwiches as usual. Barry better marry me wtf hahaha that whole sentence rhymes
I curled my hair every morning but the humidity in Florida was really bad for the curls no matter how much spray I use =(
Hahhah look at my face i look like a mouse but look at how not curly my hair is!
We finally finished every single ride there was in 2.5 days so we went to the mall
I love florida *big wet eyes. Where else can I wear a skirt like that in the US!
Barry in his pink shirt which he got for really cheap. Urban Outfitters!
I FOUND MY FAV SHOES!!! Remember the cute booties I wanted?? I saw these in Armani Exchange for $40 and I did NOT buy them T____T Cause it was kinda painful to walk in these and I suck at wearing heels anyway. sighhhhhh
Actually that’s all no more pictures for day 4! Will continue next day lah Barry is gonna kill me if I continue any longer. Hope you liked the pictures!
