The moment I learned that MV Doulos is back here in the Philippines, I knew I had to go and pay a visit this time. Although they’re staying until the end of the month, I just can’t help but plan it right away. I even checked out their website and took a virtual tour, which made me more excited! Good thing they’re back, because people was informed that it’s the vessel’s last dock here in our country last year. Had they not, I won’t have my share of the Doulos experience.
So off I went to the South Harbor Pier after work one Friday morning, with my two friends. We had fun on our way, although the heat is killing us. It was around 12:30 in the afternoon when we arrived there, and walking at the pier area during that time is not quite a good idea. But still, we had a great time. Especially when we’re already inside the ship, we enjoyed the sight! And yes, the photo op haha!

I do not intend to do the shop-til-you-drop thing, I just bought one book for myself, a recipe book for mom, activity books for my pamangkins and some souvenirs like keychains, ID lace and a bag. I just really wanted to go and see how it looked like, basically have the feel of being inside the world’s largest floating bookstore. So when finally we’re done shopping and taking pictures, it’s time to step out. We really wanted to have a picture taken with the ship as our background, thank God there’s a lady who asked me to take a picture of her and in return, she’ll take a picture of us.
Take 2, our parting shot. Thanks to Ate 😉
So needless to say, we spelled fun with a capital F! Although it is still quite humid (and the traffic’s bad too!) on our way home, we didn’t let that dampen our spirits. We just feasted ourselves with a sumptuous meal over at Trinoma. And just like that, we’re back in our ownselves! Back at home seeing our pictures, I just can’t help but smile; with a hope to be back, probably if they dock in a different country. That would be cool. 😀
