CNY Holidays

I'm back from the holidays. For Chinese New Year this year we went to Pangkor Island for a short holidays. It is a small island located on the North West coast of Malaysia in the Straits of Malacca. We stayed at the Pangkor Island Beach Resort which is located at the Teluk Belanga. Though it is a small island but there a few places of interest i.e. the chinese temple called "Fu Ling Kung Temple" and the "Kuan Yin Temple". We also visited the 300 year old Dutch Fort. Besides that, Pangkor Island is renowed for its high quality anchovies, we did brought back some. Besided anchovies they have these dried "Big Cuttlefish" that really looks like small frog.
Well, enough about my holiday trip. I managed to finish pinky at last. I did the last part of pinky which is the border in Pangkor Island actually. Here it is.


And here's the shot where I'm wearing it. Overall, I'm happy with the result. The first FO for year 2005.

On the progress of Flowery Top, I've frogged out the whole thing. I dont really like it. My mom loves the crochet though, so I'm going to pass on the thread to her.

I've started a new project, I'm not revealing it here, maybe my next post. I think thats all for now. Wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year, hope its not too late.

What a pretty blouse! And I was just telling my husband about Pangkor the other day and was wondering if it was harmed by the Tsunami or not.
