Universal Studios Japan, Osaka

Harry Potter 

Waterworld. The performance is a must watch! =) 

For the kids at heart,  this section is quite nice!! =) 

Minions Park! =)

Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, Osaka Nights

Dotonbori Sight Seeing


There's also a temple just near the busy Dotonbori Strip.It's this, Hozenji Temple.

 Few minutes walk, you may also visit Americamura. :D

Also, the old feels lane of Osaka is here in Dotonbori, Called the Hozenji Yokocho.

OSAKA City Tour

Osaka's Pokemon Center is really small. I really thought it could be larger, but its just in one floor of the Umeda Building. Not really worth the time going there. =)

Tempozan Ferris Wheel

 There is a combo ticket if you go inside the Kaiyukan Aquarium and ride the Ferris Wheel. This is a good half day tour. =) Beside Kaiyukan, there is the Tempozan Harbor Mall, with shops and food court. 

At night, you can also drop by Umeda to view the Umeda Sky Building, or go the other side for the Hep 5 Ferris Wheel. 

Cartel Deli

This Deli has got some good ambience. It is very homey but you wouldn't be spending a lot of time here with friends because the seats are a bit uncomfortable, with no back rest. ;) 

Their breakfast menu consists of a variety of omelettes, I've tried the bacon and caramelized onions, my friend had a ham and cheese; but sadly it is overpriced. bacon and the ham comes in bits i could hardly taste 'em. 

This muffin looked very yummy, its very chocolate-y, not a favorite. 

Their working space =) 

 Also tried their Quiche, its good.. i like it as I do love cheese. I think there is a better version of this somewhere. haha 

WildFlour Restaurant, Salcedo Makati City

Some Bread and Butter for Appetizer. The Bacon butter is to be raved about. This also have a honey butter and beef and herb butter. 

Wildflour Salad, is indeed wild with the fresh flavor.

Fried Sweet Potatoes

Fried Chicken and Grits

Chorizo and Gambas is so yummy! i'd go back only for this. =)
