It was the best Military Coastal Fort Museum Exhibit I have ever witness. Entrance was $8. sing. and when you enter the Fort you take a bus tour along it's grounds. With a Tour guide along. Just like those Disneyland tour guides! ;D The you left to explore the very well kept and maintained ffort grounds.
The staff were very helpful, available and the Fort was very well maintained. Really impressed by their preservation and presentation of Singapore's Military history during the British and WWII periods. Their indoor exhibits you could see they spent for an accurate recreation of how life was in the fort.
I was truly impressed by the way they presented everything. The whole Fort grounds you could hear British martial music playing and voices of Officers and sounds of boots marching.
the most incredible exhibit was the simulated "firing' of the Breach loading Naval gun! With smoke, recoil and sound effects! Truly spectucular for a coastal Artillery Fort showcase!
BTW, kamusta na?........are the Singaporean babes treating you good?
I like the idea of the Singaporeans in the tour where they also included the signing of the Japanese surrender to allied forces in Singapore.
I think the Philippine historical institute should also commemorate the surrender of Japanese forces in the Philippines in 1945, just to remind Filipinos (and Japanese people as well) that we as an allied and american commonwealth nation actually won WW2 also ;D
Glad you appreciated the pics Ray. I really had a great time in that Fort as British military music was constantly playing in the grounds. And you could hear the commands too.
Singaporean Ladies here most of the time wear really short shorts or mini's! a lot more hotter looking than the girls back in LA. Even when I take the MRT (mass transit train) to work and back.
The Corregidor exhibit really and sadly needs help to bring it to the level of the Fort Siloso's presentation. Imagine they even have a working Naval Gun demonstration for the visitors.
Yes there so many MAJOR events that happened in the Philippines WWII alone that needs to be presented as a life size wax museum exhibit. What we only have is that minature diorama at the Ayala Museum. Pedro Javier's 1/6 scale of Philippine historical figures was far superior in detail.
