A Visit To Imperial War Museum, London

TUBE RIDE TO LONDON took almost an hour, I slept during the whole journey and only woke up when we reached the station, Elephant & Castle.... wevwalked a bit to our destination, that is the War Imperial.  The big man is interested in all the museums related to war and we are just observers/followers.  Entrance is free, that is a good thing... and we spent nearly two hours in the museum, yes, only a short time.  He was quite disappointed, not sure why... but the one who is more interested in knowing more turned out to be Aaron.  We ended up waiting for him to come down... he spent quire some time on third level watching the videos of the holocaust that happened during the world wars... and it was kind of depressing, he said...
Took the name of this place in case I forgot where we went.... 
(It helps especially when I am going to write the posts long after... )
As we walked to War Imperial Museum... 
And here it is.... 
Closer angle... 
Two giant cannons... 
Real giant alright... 
In front the building we are going to enter...
Upon entering, this is what we saw....
The war planes.... 
Vehicles used...
Real cars used during war times... 
Upper level looking down... 
And a bit of this and that.... 
Really not into these museums... 
It is kind of depressing... 
That is why I did not survey all the three levels... 
Maybe I was too tired to, anyway...

  1. I am curious to know why your bil is disappointed with this war museum.

  2. Quite honestly, I would be bored at this museum since I am not into war and war machines. But to those who have interest, this would be a place that they should visit.

  3. The building is huge and very pretty. I am not very big on war things. But I do like this doll house, what is it supposed to be?

  4. I like museum but not into wars and I don't like to watch the holocaust. Probably the museum not up to your bil expectation? I much prefer looking at the miniature houses and their interior.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
