Photo Shot: MV Doulos at Kota Kinabalu

Wikipedia describes,

The MV Doulos is the world's oldest active ocean-faring passenger ship. She is now owned by the German charity Gute Bücher für Alle (Good Books for All), and is used as a floating bookshop. Over the years, she has been known as the SS Medina, the SS Roma, and the MV Franca C

I woke up early to send my mom to visit the MV Doulos, thou i didn't go up to the ship. I take this opportunity to snap some couple of photos for my collection and get the feeling of snapping a cruise ship. The sun shines directly to the ship for a few moments before a brief rain starts.

I'm not really dare to go over the red tape line for a better angle because this is a private property. Some of the port staff curiously watching me taking some photo of the ship and i hope they don't think that I'm a terrorist or what.

After few moments, I realized that it is going to rain. Big gray cloud swarming near the port area at the horizon and at that time I think i should go back to car or went up the ship. Thou, I choose to go back to car.

I managed to snap some last minutes of the ship before rain dripping. I have some other port photo and will show it up on the next post.

Doulos! I've been on Doulos to buy books for 3 or 4 times already. They cannot dock in Miri, so we used to travel to Bintulu to visit the ship. So nice!
