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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
