|Go around sunset. That's my recommendation. Although the rides close|
around 5pm, and some of them are pretty fun. So uh, ok, maybe you should go
for the whole day.
|I actually advocate going when it's off-peak,|
at the end of the year, for the Christmas illuminations.
|Although according to my friend, who's from Kitakyushu|
(where Space World is located), the illuminations only became really cool
about last year or so.
Somehow, my photos only get made into GIFS if they're taken in broad daylight :/
I'll be doing a more detailed review soon (and then I'll post a link to it here), so wait for my news!
One interesting (although not very fun) thing that happened was that I almost got into a confrontation at Space World. There was a group of students (I think they're Vietnamese, although I can't really distinguish it by sound - My mom and I are pretty sure it's somewhere in South East Asia, and not Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines or Indonesia though). We were at a huge bouncy egg (It's literally called "fuwa fuwa egg", which is for kids ages 3-12 (I think. It might have been cut off at age 10).
Suddenly, the students came in and started bouncing around. There were only two kids on the egg (my brother and another girl), but I really didn't think they should have been doing that. So I went up to them and told them in Japanese that they weren't allowed to play here. I was kinda nervous and mispronounced a word, but they got the message and left. Also, the park attendant came so they ran off apologising. I'm kind of glad I did that, because the play area is basically like a big bouncy balloon and I was scared that they would puncture it if they kept jumping up and down.
And in other, non-Space World related news. my favourite Winter/Spring ice-cream is back!
|You. Must. Try. This. (Is my mind control working?)|
If you love cookie ice cream (Think of Baskin Robin's Cookie Dough ice-cream, but cheaper), you have to get this!
And once again, we experienced really good Japanese service:
|Don't these cakes look good? There's a story behind them!|
I was kind of embarrassed and kept apologising as we left. But, I met my match in the owner of the shop, who probably apologised more. She even gave us those three yummy pieces of cake as an apology. The cakes, by the way, were awesome, and that made me decide to eat there more often. At least for tea, if not for a proper meal.
I guess I could have broken up this post into three separate posts. But I really wanted to share this with you guys. So now you have a sense of what it's like to talk to me when I'm excited(;
