A Visit To The Tank Museum In Bovington

MAIN ATTRACTION...

Visiting London has a reason, not mine, of course... my BIL's main itinerary is to go to Bovington, a couple of hours from London.  On the second day early morning, we rented a car and drove to The Tank Museum, based in Bovington.  This town is the main training centre for tanks during the First World War and the tanks were returned to the fields around the current museum at the end of the war.  And how did I know?  Well, I got this information from the The Tank Musuem online though my BIL has told us briefly about it before we went.

Admission was 14 pounds sterling per person and the four of us went in regardless.  I know we would be spending many hours inside so I don't think I wanted to stay outside lingering around.  Aaron was all keen for this though we two ladies would rather go shopping anytime!  LOL... Well, anyway, just follow the leader and it was indeed an eye opener for me, at least.  It was tiring though.... three of us walked and rested at certain spots... the one who was most interested, did not even complained tired at all!! 
Upon reaching and at the grounds before entering... 
The memorial statue... 
Introducing the Tank Museum... 
Buying tickets for admissions... 
And here is the entrance leading in... 
Miniature tanks on display and for sale, I think... 
Two ex-military men were there... 
They assembled these tanks from scratch... 
It is sort of their hobby and interest.... 
And here goes the tanks... 
Take some minutes to study each tank... 
While I rested my poor legs.... 


Panoramic view... 
A very tankful day for the four of us... 
We spent the whole afternoon inside the museum... 
And only left half an hour before it closed for the day...

  1. You got great pictures! I love your panorama. I know nothing about this, and I bet you didn't either. So we both learned something.

  4. I love your first photo. So creative to point that direction.
    I think I would enjoy war in museums like this as they are educational. The most shocking war museums that I ever visited and never stopped talking are the 2 atomic museums in Japan!!! Half baked truths being displayed.

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
