For those who have experienced working on board of the ship, the month of Ramadan has become a synonym with their duties. According to them, being far from friends and family members has become a normal routine. Breaking of the fast and performing a mass tarawih together with the colleagues can foster relationship which reflects the unity of brotherhood amongst Muslims.
