Welcome Aboard Mariners Alike - Malaysia Rule The Waves

its hard to describe how a man could left everything he had on land and went out to sea...
its even harder to describe how bright the stars at night and how fresh the cool morning air when you are in the middle of the ocean...
the hardest thing is to describe how close you are to death and how god could took your life at any time...
come to sea and see for yourself...


come to sea and see for yourself

this blog is dedicated to mariners,navigators and seafarers alike, merchant or naval for others to had a glimpse of what we do and what we faced in the vast blue oceans.

after a whole morning of documentation, sampling and gauging of cargo onboard, we commenced discharge of approx. 4000MT of downstream palm oil product to the terminal in the afternoon.

didn`t got the chance to attend morning prayers coz we are short on hands, but still the food is good.

thus, that is how i celebrate the 1st of Syawal... : )
