Doulos

Today after lunch, i went to the Doulos ship that is town from October 12 (they arrived yesterday) until the 26th. There were so many people on the ship and it was SO hot, i sweat like a pig just now.

There were many things to look at, besides books. A cultural display was going on but i couldn't really get a good look at each booth coz it was too crowded and i felt suffocated.

At the books area, i think kids really will really be happy in there coz there were abundant of kiddie books. What i really wanted was a study Bible, and there were some that caught my interest but i didnt end up buying it coz it was either in a King James Version (KJV) or New King James Version (NKJV), which in my opinion is quite hard to understand. What i specifically wanted was a study Bible in a New International Version (NIV) but there weren't any so i ended up buying a Dictionary/Thesaurus/Atlast book hahaha. But i think it was worth my Rm24.00..it's thick, about 7cm and the maps are in full color. I also bought some religious CDs - Greg Long, Talley Trio, and The Martins.

It was kinda fun going to Doulos again with my family after a long time. The last time i was on the ship with them was probably more than 10 years ago.. i was still a little kid and what i remember was that i will only get myself those sticker books. When i saw sticker books on the rack just now, it kinda brought back some kiddie memories :-)
