Kansai - Universal Studio Japan

Finally Home Sweet Home here in IPOH... Praise God for this wonderful trip...

And of course, thanks to all of you who come by and commenting... I will try to reply to your comments (after all my packing is done and a snooze later on :p)

For this Japan trip, it was a 8 days 6 nights and it cost RM5,800 per pax. My girl and I went with some members of my family.... most of my pictures were captured on my handphone and camcoder....

On our first day, upon arrival at the Kansai airport at around 7am, we were whisked off to breakfast before we adjourned to Universal Studio Japan.... spent many hours there...

at the entrance...

this spiderman was stimulating..
i closed my eyes & screamed
esp. the part i was like "dropped" from the building..

and who is this? can someone tell me....

i just know how to hold them....

here's one for u.. he said..

kitty cat doing their dance on the street..

    the green 'monster' is Shrek... di bawah shrek is Bert (a Muppet fr. Sesame Street), and then Ernie (Bert & Ernie are good mates!)

    itu saja =)

    ps: kanasai is hokkien, literally it means "like shit" :p

  14. =.= wud la, Claire... you met those cartoon characters but you dono who they are.

    The green one is Shrek. You might wanna watch the movie, very nice...cute 'fairy tale'.

    Then there's characters from Sesame's Street. Bert& Ernie.

    Glad you know Hello kitty tho. Ahahahahaha....

    OMG... no Doraemon, Shin Chan and Chibi Maruko? No sailormoon oso? OMG... no Doraemon! Doraemon is like Mickey Mouse for japan! *WHINE*

  21. Looks like you had a wonderful trip. I think its great when one goes to these type of places and one turns back to a child who loves everything there and wants to experience everything as a child! Thats how I feel when I go to DisneyWorld. I feel young again and have a wonderful time. Very nice photos, like the one with Shrek!

  22. nice pictures!! Using your hp camera can take so nice pictures also. U're just excited as your girl. hahahhahha, suddenly become so young right?

    eh.. go Japan so cheap only meh?
    RM5800?? accordking to my last check, the tix alone already cost RM 3000, i thought going a trip at Japan must be more than RM 10k.. =.="

  25. rainbow angeles: arigatok for yr answers, no wonder he looked so familiar.. (i seldom watch disney shows *malu*) let me tell u ye.. japan std of living is extremely high for us malaysians la, unless u work there, then can survive, otherwise to go there on our own, hv fun and lodging, very very high la!

    cleffairy: yeah, malu ye? firstly, my kids all grown up so i nv watch cartoon anymore, funny though, my kids dont like cartoon shows too... but love to take pics with them only.. let me tell u ah.. the japs simply worship mickey mouse, they can really sapu the gifts inside disney like nobody's biz, so expensive to me and yet so cheap to them.. they even wear their disney caps on their head, cost 2000 yen though!

    Merryn: whatever r u thinking of.. (*hands on hips*) in fact, they do have lots of stimulators and stimulating movies there :p
    the spiderman virtual 4D movie was so real.. we can really move along with him in our car seats.. met up with the bad villains face to face too! difficult to describe but i came out pening pening after that! lol...

    Voon: money spent already.. now poor me.. :0

    mingna: yes, in HK it is free to take pics with them, in japan, got to line up long long and hv to pay to take pic with mickey and minnie... sigh.. .

    elin: no wonder u r missing too.. busy in the kitchen, huh... ok, i go ransack your house later on.. hahhaa.. missing yr cakes and biscuits too.. any extra crumbs for me???

    cleffairy: that merryn.. small & petite but with a mind of an overgrown adult! hahahaha....

    cheryl: yes, we love to feel young again, huh.. only at times, have to stop and pant for breath and rest my weary bones for walking too much.. lol...

    annieq: yes, feel young only but cannot deny that the stamina is not there anymore.. hahhaha...

    eugene: no need to be jeles.. God is fair.. i have my tough rough times before.. now i m old, please let me relax a bit la.. :) as long as my kids are happy, so am i!
