Vivo City 'N' MV Doulos

7/12 : After the tea ceremony, Larry dropped us at Hougang MRT, from there we went to Vivo City which was about 30 minutes away. At first I thought Vivo is a new city by itself, never knowing it is another shopping mall. Heard it is the biggest in Singapore now, am I right? Anyway, we didn't spend much time there cos we have to rush back for the wedding dinner at 6pm...


Vivo City


some christmas display at the ground floor


kids' favourite area


the entrance, I think...


then we saw something more interesting...


MV DOVLOS
it is a missionary ship
selling all kinds of books


reminds me of Titanic...


good experience to be up the Doulos..


heard of it very often
and now to be up here
it is very memorable...


Thank God
For the wonderful trip...
till we meet again..
Adios Singapore!

  4. i was part of the doulos team back home about 15 years ago (after form 5). got nothing to do at home, so why not travel and do some missions work. i was in their worship team back then. missed those days. i think they'll be coming down to kuantan port by feb next year. cant wait for them to come. got tonnes of cd and books i wanna buy. id encourage aaron to join, its so interesting to eat, sleep, work, pray and have fellowship with bros and sister from all over the world..cheers

  6. My my. Doulos brings back memories of my school days and youth. Ever so energetic and zealous. Eager to go anywhere and everywhere, the more `ulu' the better! One of my friend joined the other ship, Logos i think...

  7. We just passed by Vivo City as we were on our way to Sentosa Island. Never really had the chance to explore the mall.

    For an old ship, it is still well maintained from what I see. The ship did stop at Kuching a few times but never been there as Kuching is quite far from my hometown
