MV Doulos Trip

Have you heard of MV Doulos? If not, it is a good opportunity to take a look at this 90 years old cruise. We went there quite late about 9pm, the crowd was overwhelming with late visitors like us.

A good view of the cruise. It’s beautiful (of course nothing to compare to Star cruises)! This is my first time climbing on a cruise. I remember when I was a little girl being live near Lumut, we had the priviledge to visit TLDM (Royal Malaysian Navy) and go on board their war ship. These two are a totally different feelings for me. On board a Navy ship, you see lots of young, masculine, handsome navy walking around *cough*. A Doulos? Hmm… I’m still trying to sum up my feeling. A little of dissapointment – small, crowded, humid book fair.

Back to the cruise, this is what the book fair looks like…

… low canopy ceiling with lots of peoples and books.

Tho I don’t find their book cheap, more at the normal price but they do have about 6,000 titles of books for sale, covering a wide range of subjects, including science, cookery, sports, technology, classic literature, dictionary, children’s books and a large selection of Christian titles.

I spent less than 20 minutes at the book section and started gasping for cool air. *slurppppp…. soft cone vanilla+strawberry ice-cream for RM2 only!!!

As I was standing at one of the deck enjoying my ice-cream, this old looking lamp post facinates me the most.

… and of course we walk around in the cruise. Since it is at night, nothing much you can see as it is all dark outside with beautiful neon light.

Baby Princess and me :). If we are allowed to enter the lower deck, probably I’ll do a Leonardo Di Caprio style ala Titanic with hubby *cough*

Now can go puke ade!!!

Let me throw in 2 more pic.

See the tungsten light? Still find them very facinating. Duhh. And look at Prince. Chun leh. This one qualified to a future navy kua.

Princess overlooking the cruise as backdrop.

I’ll probably will go again during day time to take more pictures as my cam really sucks at night scene and since they have a cultural show end of the month. As I have mentioned previously MV Doulos will be in Port Klang till end of July before they sail to Kuantan port. It is worth a visit if you had no plan over the weekend.

    Interesting that this ship attracts people. What is it’s home port.

    The littlest Princess reminds me of my niece. haha. Of course not in longer. That girl will be Junior next year. She is doing an internship in Shanghai for the summer. Miss her being little when I could get those sweet huggies.

    Doulos will come by every 5 years. I’ve got friends who served on board and my SIL also was on board for 1 year. Had a tour of the ship the last time they came. Really narrow walkways and small quarters. The noise near the engine room was really loud and it’s really hot in there. Can’t imagine if kena assigned to work in there.

    The Queen says:  Hmm…. 20-25 yrs ago I was still drinking from the bottle!

    Hey, we went yesterday and we went around 2:30pm. God! Maybe we chose the wrong time or maybe it was the last day coz it was incredibly crowded and hot. And my kids whom i thought would get excited at the thought of seeing and going up a huge ship was bizzarrely unexcited. Are they normal kids, I wonder? But they did go bonkers when they saw the books and I ended up spending a lot more than I bargained for. However, I think it was worth the price.
    I wanted to get the ice-cream, but we had to wait like 5 minutes, and there was a long queue building, so i abandoned the notion and the ship in search of a thirst quencher. My husband bought iced sugar cane on the roadside along the way home. Perfect!
