Today was the last day of the ship in Singapore. Port call activities continued today with loading of equipment, frozen/refridgerated food and dry stores. The ship will depart tomorrow morning. We all had a last day out in the land because we won’t see land and people on land for the next 2 months. Life has to be different.
We had fire, boat and security drills today. The third mate told us how to release the life boat under emergency situation and key to survive under such conditions. The highly research vessel is robust and secure, but these emergency drills taught us the value of life.
