Horray! The haze condition has improved tremendously, the sky has cleared so much over the past few days. Auntie Catherine brought all of us to Universal Studio. I have been looking forward to it. I have been to Universal Studio and each time, I enjoy myself as there are always new things to see, new experiences and great company, this time I am going with Mummy’s friends.
Hmm … where shall we start? Do remember to grab a copy of the guide which is easily available at the entrance and every shop to help plan for your trip. Gor Gor studying the guide and planning his visit.
I am at one of the latest new attractions for 2013 which is the Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase.
I am queuing up to take the ride and I am going to join Elmo on a mission with Sesame Street super heroes to stop Macaroni the Merciless in his plot to steal all the spaghetti from Earth. I get to zip through the space on a space ship and meet all my favourite Sesame Street characters.

After taking the ride, it is pretty scary for me as I have not taken high speed roller coaster in the dark before. The ride is conducted indoor and in total darkness with sudden sharp turns and children, please hold onto the hand bars tightly. The adults are having fun as they keep saying they want to go for a second round. They commented me on my bravery on taking this ride. Overall, after going through the first round, I am more prepared to go for another round. It is fun! Height requirement for guests under 122cm may not ride. Children must be accompanied by adults and please keep your belongings in the lockers provided at the ride venue.

I am at Far Far Away Land and the highlight is to watch Shrek 4-D Adventure. Join Shrek and Donkey in their adventure to save Princess Fiona. I enjoy watching the show, the characters come alive with the OgreVision glasses that you wear when you watch a 3D movie and you get to feel the movement when the characters jump, bounce and even when Donkey sneezes, water will be splashing at you so be prepared! Overall, it is an interesting 4D experiences!
