Went to check out the MV Doulos with some of my friends.
Stuff I learned from the trip
- The books are not cheap. Not exactly expensive, either, but not much different from the prices offered at your regular high-street bookstore.
- Selection is rather limited. They have music CDs and cassettes, too. But also limited. However, they do have a rather extensive collection of books related to sprituality, religion, faith, devotion, etc, so if you’re interested in that, you might find what you want here.
- They have a scheduled tour of the ship at different times throughout the day. You need to buy tickets for this. Tickets sell out fast. We didn’t know that, thus missing out on the tour because they were all sold out – for the whole day.
- My camera sucks at taking outdoor shots when the sun is out in full force. And where the hell was the haze? I think our friends in Sumatera have been slacking lah. Woi, forgot to burn the jungle today ah?
- Be prepared for a large crowd. It’s not always easy to move around in there.
- Fear not, coffee-lovers – there’s a Starbucks stall right there on the ship!

This kid needs a break.
Another book section on the Doulos. You buy a souvenir bag for RM25 and stuff in 3 items of your choice from the selection.
“Peaceful. Loving. Dynamic.” That’s probably a good a way as any of explaining the mission of the MV Doulos and its crew.
The MV Doulos. And possibly my only one decent outdoor shot of the entire trip. I need a new camera.
