Photographer's Note

Debbie Boone, daughter of Pat Boone, sang the song called You Light Up My Life, which has a beautiful lyrics and melody and she sang it very well. I choose this title because of the old spotlight fixed atop the MV Doulos which is currently stationed in Kuching since Dec10 till Jan3, 2009. The MV Doulos is the world's oldest active ocean-faring passenger ship. She is now owned by the German charity Gute Bόcher fόr Alle (Good Books for All), and is used as a floating bookshop.

There are 350 volunteers on board the ship which sails around the world selling mostly religious books. These people come from all over the world and live together in communal sharing style. It is basically christian based group. The objectives are very noble, helping to spread religion at every port of call. The MV Doulos is the world's oldest active ocean-faring passenger ship.

I must admit a secret. I was 17, in high school. I visited the 1st arrival of the original ship called MV Logos that came to Sibu. Young, naive and touched by the noble idea of volunteer work sailing around the world, I struggled on my decision to join. It was a young boy's dream but No, I did not leave my study and left home. So when I visited MV Doulos 2 weeks ago, I recalled those days of Logos.

This light is special because I am glad I did not get lost of direction in life and I posted this to symbolize the light that shines in my life. Very simple light but it serves very noble purpose. And no, it is not just any other study light that we see at home. I am sure this light has served many many volunteers on board this charity ship and help shine in their lives on a voyage through the four seas.

MV Doulos will be de-commissioned by 2010 and replaced by another boat.
