MV Logos Hope, The World's Largest Floating Book Fair

It was already 5pm when we reached Port Klang Cruise Centre, far behind our schedule.  After having lunch at La Teh Cafe, Mah mah wanted to go shopping at Giant.  We headed to Giant in Kelana Jaya and spent more than 2 hours there and that explained the delay.

The queue to the ship was horrendous and it took us almost 2 hours before our turn to board the ship.

Look at the 'Q'!!

After 1 1/2 hours in the queue, a crew finally showed up to entertain the kids with......

Fire painting, as requested by the boy..

Onboard the ship and this was what first came into sight

Look at the crowd!!

The 2 hours' standing and my nursing of a bad tummy ache literally killed my enthusiasm and desire to shop for more books.  Furthermore, the book pricing was nowhere near that of Big Bad Wolf Sale to which I had contributed RM400 sales.   However, hubby and the boy managed to get themselves each a book and a toy despite only less than 10 minutes onboard the ship.

Hubby reckoned the concerned party should have organized some activities/booths selling food and drinks along the long queue during peak periods such as weekends to entertain the crowd and to make the long wait more bearable to all and I couldn't have agreed with him more!

tabik you for having the patience to queue for 2 hrs. I went on tuesday. No queue. Ya nothing much la in there . It's for the experience la. I wonder if some of the books are the same source from BBWS. Saw some of the kids books were "haus" a bit. Maybe rejected stock or over printed books? will be posting about the ship tmw.

Wow, 5pm + queue for 2 hours means you boarded the ship at 7pm. Ian is such a patient boy to queue with mummy and daddy~

I think I would give up upon seeing the huge crowds. Hihi! I agree with your hubby's suggestion. Those food and drinks would sell like hot cakes!
