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.

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...
