My life on a boat

So my dear readers,
i made it. I am officially a pirate.

Well ok almost, i am a ships cook.
My ship is called “Naga Pelangi” which means Rainbow Dragon in Malay. It is the only “Perahu Besar” (mal.: big boat) based on the ancient cargo boat design but finished to modern yacht standards.

I have to cook lunch and dinner for the guests and us (Christoph the Skipper and Capt’n, Stefan who is another deckhand and me)
The deck: both pctures are shot from the front

In the back there are some solar panels for providing power.

This is Christoph at work.

 

I think the coming time will be amazing.
The next 6 days we have 2 guests onboard.
A chinese couple who are good friends of Christoph.
So we are going to sail around Lankawi, thats cool, so i can see some views of the island as well.
I don’t know how my phone will work the networking.
I am not really able to upload pictures (all of these exept the pic of me and stephen are links 😉 ) so i might have to wait until i have wifi somewhere.
but i will write some stuff.

so long Ole 🙂
p.s. ARRRR

 

 

New years eve in Kuala Lumpur

 

 

Dear  readers, it was  a long year.
It started and ended with fireworks.
Well for me at least.
I spend less than 3/4 of that year in germany,
While travelling everybody changes, i for example became more quiet and tranquil. It is really easy for me to adapt to different people and cultures, but sometimes there are some things you don’t want to adapt to. That is the priority, don’t break yourself.

I have been told that i am very mature for my age.
Also  i have been told that i am very childish for my age.

I like the thought, that i act like a child and think like a grown up,
there are too many people who do it the other way around.

I finally found work on a boat.
It will be a charter boat that cruises around Lankawi.
Lankawi is a very beautiful group of islands north of Malaysia.
The boat is a traditional style Malaysian freight ship.

the ship

maybe you noticed the german flag, the skipper is a german.
I will be chef (cook) and deckhand and i am so looking forward to it!

My new years eve was really relaxed, cooking awesome food and then watching the fireworks of the balcony. (after all the food nobody dared to go swimming in the pool 😀 )
And  now some (in my opinion) boring pictures of KL
Just for you 🙂

Ok i admit, that i actually like the last picture, but the rest is not really creme de la creme.
Making pictures of fireworks is always diffucult, and with a bad camera it is just snapshooting.

anyhow the pictures from the sea will be more interesting i guess 🙂

So long
Ole
