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.

The Story Of A Watchkeeping Officer - Back to Sea

I have not wrote as much as i was a few years back so as i noticed for i have been busy with other things while i am ashore...and plus i found that i got stalled halfway while writing..i have lost my touch and my ability to turn words into expression..and a number of writings were now in cold storage,waiting to be written again or to be thrown into the dustbin so to say..

But suddenly...

I got the urge to write again...for now i know that the person i cherish and love the most is waiting for me to write...waiting to hear stories from the seas and far away land..

And so..i am writing

Here in a crappy 4 star hotel i wrote my expression of knowing and having someone waiting for me to come back in one piece from the treacherous ocean and the unforgiving nature of sailing...

In the last 4-5 years in the service...i had never felt so reluctant to leave for another shipboard service...i had never felt so sad to leave my love one...i never had tears running when i had to leave..when i had to see her in tears....when she said how much she care about me...how she rejoice the times we had been together...

And for the first time...i had never went to sea...having the desire to come back....the desire to get into fights about insignificant things...to get into unnecessary argument...to hold our hands while walking together talking about irrelevant things.... to talk all night on the phone...going to places we had never been together..have you on my passenger side showing ways around the city....i will miss all that and i am really looking forward to do that again...

Thank you for all the things that you had done...for all the things we did together...for all the time we spend together....i will remember them...i will treasure all the memories...

Even when i am far away....do remember that i am always close to your heart and to your mind...for even we are apart...we are still living under the same skies...looking at the same moon and counting the same stars...

I will be going now...i will miss you a lot...i hate to go but i have to...

Pray to god that i will be safe...so that i will come back for you...

A Navigator`s Serenade - A Serenade for The One I Love

back to sea

these last four days...
had been really meaningful to both of us
all the small things that we have done
all the memories that i will cherish the most
while i am out there in the open ocean

i will remember
bit by bit
places that we went together
what we did
what we saw
what talked over lunch
for that is the only reason for me to go on

you are the reason for me to come back
reason for all that i done in the treacherous waters
reason for all the risk i took

you are the light that shone the coast
the light that marks fairways for mariners to pass
light that gave hope to me that there is still chance for us to meet again

i will miss you a lot
for my love to you is un fathomed
like the depth of celestial heavens
like the depth of the dark ocean

thanks for all you have done these 133 days we have been together
i will cherish and appreciate it like how i did to the bluest skies

-come to sea and see for yourself-
