MVDOULOS

Doulos, built in 1914, 2 years younger than the Titanic, it is the world's oldest passenger ship with the largest floating book shop. The ship has made it farewell visit to wellington with 320 volunteers staff representing 50 different nations. Doulos will be in Wellington till 23 July.

We visited Doulos today, but not before my stomach was filled and happy. Hehehehe. So, we first visited Clark Cafe......

Egg & bacon pie, mince & cheese pie, scone, cappucina and latte


What a messy hair! Time to visit my hairdresser.


I like the composition of this pic, but that stupid shadows on my face just spoilt it all (>_<).


So now that we're full and happy, time to do a bit of exercise to walk off the fat!


MVDOULOS


Welcome onboard


Doulos has quite a collection of books at a fairly cheap price. You can find large collection of cook books, children books, christianity and world atlas.

Checking out their cook books




See, they got MALAYSIAN flag too!


Then, I also ate too full got nothing to do, went to play with their costumes.....


Can anyone tell me what costume is this? I have no idea, but should be one of the Chinese right?

Sounds like a nice visit onboard Doulos. Ah, your photographer seems to have a gift to bring out the best in you. Let him know on my behalf.

Of course, the model should take some credits too.
