Heheh look at the extremely tall & so thin Palm Trees surrounding Colosseum Hard Rock Cafe Orlando :
Dear’s extremely joyful as he’s enjoying Universal CityWalk lots!!
“Hey Dear wait a minute stay still there!!” Me screaming at Dear as I take a quick snapshot of the Universal Studios River Cruise Boat passing by behind him :
Haha I love Universal CityWalk cos I think it’s such a lovely place out here!! And a Colosseum here too hahah it’s unbelievably amazing!!
Dear’s now showing “I LOVE You” hand sign as he poses infront of Colosseum Hard Rock Cafe Orlando :
And another “PEACE” Sign from Dear Dear as he instructs me to take this pic of him infront of the far away “UNIVERSAL” Revolving Globe :
And just as Dear & I are traying to self-photograph ourselves with our babies, a White American family of 4 comes along our direction & the Father asks if we’d like him to help – YEA Yea of course!! Thank you so much!!
“HAHAHHAHAH!!!” automatically & naturally I let out the LOUDEST loudest SCREAM here at Universal CityWalk while picking Smartie up quickly………
Hmm Hmm my poor poor Baby Smartie’s such a good boy cos he never even utter a cry, but days & weeks & months later after this Trip he still complains about this great fall of his & can’t stop saying “Ma Ma dropped me at Universal CityWalk in Orlando USA!! My backside was so painful so painful!! Hmm…….hmmm……..!!”
And according to Dear, I scream Sososossos LOUD that the white American Father (who photographs us) actually got a SHOCKed expression (though his wife, young daughter & son look pretty okie heheh!!) - Well, guess the Father must be thinking they’ve just met a really CRAZY insane Asian woman hahah!!!
Anyway, here it is, our most precious Family Portrait of Dear & I with our Babies Smartie, Sportie & Cutie infront of Colosseum Hard Rock Cafe Orlando in Universal CityWalk – Universal Studios Florida in USA :
Hey there’s even an Aircraft at Universal CityWalk – that’s so cool!!! Well, that’s actually a N928J Hemisphere Dancer Aircraft at Lone Palm Airport (an open Cafe) - Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville – located infront of Universal’s Islands of Adventure :

We’ve now strolling towards Colosseum Hard Rock Cafe Orlando when Dear spots NASCAR SPORTS GRILLE :
And what’s best & coolest about here is that there’re RACE Cars parked outside NASCAR SPORTS GRILLE which makes Dear so excited as he loves RACE Cars!!
And he keeps telling me “Dear come come take photos for me with the Race Cars!!” haha!!
Well, Dear & I soon venture further to the Main Entrance of Universal Studios Florida – haha we’ve now to be just contented with seeing its Entrance & hold on our utmost curiosity till we return tomorrow to visit the Theme Park!!

So far we’ve been to Hard Rock Cafe Sydney, Melbourne, Surfers Paradise (Gold Coast), Beijing (where Dear was there alone during his Business Trip), Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Paris, London & Amsterdam – Well, not many at all considering there’re over 140 Hard Rock Cafes in over 36 countries!!

Ricordo Di Roma (meaning Souvenirs of Rome) II Colosseo made in Marble :
Capable of seating 50,000 spectacles, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests & public spectacles such as mock sea battles (or Naumachia), animal hunts or gladiators & beast fights (still remember Dear & I love the Movie – Gladiator!!), executions, re-enactments of famous battles, & dramas based on Classical mythology.
And an estimate of 500,000 people & over a million wild animals are believed to have died in the Colosseum games.
Since the 21st century, the Colosseum stays partially ruined due to damage caused by devastating earthquakes & stone-robbers. Today, the Colosseum is one of Rome’s most popular Tourist attraction & it still maintains close connections with the Roman Catholic Church, as on Good Fridays, the Pope leads a Torchlit “Way of the Cross” Procession around the various levels of the amphitheatre.
Now, let me show you my most charming Roman Souvenir Plaque which I almost forgot that I’ve got it – bought when visiting the Heart of City of Pisa, Tuscany, Italy during my Honeymoon with Dear - Piazza del Duomo (Catheral Square) – Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) Plaque featuring the 4 great religious structures – Leaning Tower, Duomo, Camposanto & Baptistry :
