I am dreading next week when B makes yet another work trip without me boo hoo! No, he won’t be booking himself into gorgeous Florence apartments or anywhere in Europe, so that at least is some form of consolation. If it had been a Europe trip, then I’d definitely be upset at the thought of being left behind. He will however be visiting Disneyland so that part leaves me a little green with envy because I love Disneyland! Who doesn’t?!
Disneyland sure makes me feel happy; oblivious to the world’s worries and woes as I immerse in the pleasure of colourful decorations and stores, delicious Disney-themed food, thrilling rides and games, adorable Disney characters walking around with smiles on their faces and of course all the merchandise shopping I’d be doing. Yes, I am a sucker for theme parks, which was why we just had to visit Universal Studios Singapore when we were in Lion City earlier this year.
I have already posted my gorgeous hotel pictures and story so you can look it up again if you’d like to jog your memory. I do think it was one of the best hotels we’ve stayed in and though it’s not as spacious as the beautiful apartments in Florence I would love to stay in one day, it was still a dream hotel for me.
As promised in one of my previous Singapore stories, here is the second part of our day in USS. By the way, it took me hours of painstaking effort to have these photos uploaded on Photobucket, watermarked and resized prior to publishing so I hope you like them!
Last I stopped, B and I had just finished visiting Madagascar Zone and we’re now heading towards Far Far Away. The weather was getting hotter by the minute and I wanted to visit the Fairy Godmother’s Juice Bar. I had read about the store online prior to our vacation and my heart was set on a refreshing icy cold Magical Love Potion #2. We passed by Enchanted Airways, which is a junior roller coaster that takes visitors on a magical flight over Far Far Away so we decided to go for a ride first.

Ready or not, here we go!
It was quite a long wait to get to the take-off point but we finally got to the top. The ride was not as scary as I thought but still got my heart skipping a beat as I closed my eyes and hung on to B for dear life!
Next up was the Shrek 4-D Adventure and here, we queued for about 45 minutes just to watch the show. Entertaining and a whole lot of fun, this fairytale adventure allows visitors to see, hear and feel the action right from our seat as we joined Princess Fiona & Shrek in their amazing adventure. A definite must-watch if you’re ever in USS and I’m positive you would come out fully entertained, albeit a little wet!

After the show was over, I happily hopped, skipped and jumped to the Fairy Godmother’s Potion Shop. This was what I’ve been waiting for and the store did not disappoint with an endless array of exciting toys, games and merchandise from the world of Shrek.

I got a Shrek T-shirt and a Shrek doll for myself while B got himself a Shrek Hat.
B so cute!
Shrek Doll for me, thanks Love!

And here we are at the Fairy Godmother’s Juice Bar and what a lovely sight it was! Can you spot the Fairy Godmother hovering above overseeing all the mixing of magical potions? While B ordered my Magical Love Potion #2 (Strawberry, Banana, Apple & Pink Guava), I wandered about snapping more photos of the beautiful magical store.
I want magical juice!
I see you Fairy Godmother!
What's your flavour?

It was a good ten minutes before I finally got my magical potion, which was a great thirst-quencher. I also love the bottle, which makes for a wonderful keepsake, don’t you think?

The sun was coming down harder and hotter so B and I took shelter in a resting area. We still had 5 more zones to visit so while sipping my Magical Love Potion #2, we decided to head over to The Lost World next! This I will write about in my next Singapore post. I hope you are enjoying my adventure so far and thanks so much for reading!
