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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
