It rains every time we go to Universal Studios Theme Park. May balat ba ako sa puwet? :)
Back in mid-December of 2014, nearly a year before we returned to United States from Japan, my husband and I were overwhelming excited to visit the Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in Osaka.
While USJ is relatively young, having only opened its doors in March 2001 compared to its rival Disneyland in Tokyo which is about 18 years its senior, the theme park was jam packed. Our December visit to USJ park was just 3 days short to Christmas, which means we were perfectly synced for a huge crowd. My husband and I also lack fluency in Nihonggo which, as we learned, was crucial to understanding how express pass works. However, it was the rain then that ultimately stretched our patience.
It rained very hard. Non-stop. On a chilly December winter in Osaka.
I remember not feeling both of my frozen legs that day.
My husband said it was one of the most horrible trips we ever had and vowed to bring us to Universal Studios in Florida, where he said we won’t be freezing to death, to make up. After almost 2 years, in November of 2015, we finally had the justice we seek. :)

Remember that this trip was suppose to avenge that rainy day in USJ Osaka.
But we were wrong. Oh so wrong. I was in denial when it started to pour heavily in the afternoon but thankfully, the rainfall was quick. After a few minutes, we were back to our leisurely business. Whew.
Did we get the justice that my husband wanted? We certainly did.
Who cares about balat sa puwet, anyway?

Below is a little throwback from Universal Studios Japan (Osaka) which I will save for a future post. Maybe next stop is Universal Studios Singapore? Maybe?
This post almost made me cry 😭! I’m from Orlando Florida but moved to California almost 2 years ago. I miss it sooo much. I can’t wait to go back. I loved looking at you pictures. It brought back memories of the countless times I’ve gone with family and friends. I even had my Bachelorette party there lol. Great post!
Thank you! We are also currently residing in California from Japan. We may end up in Florida in the future but who knows. Cheer up, we have Disney and Universal here too! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universa Studios Hollywood had just opened as well. :)
