Hi Five

This very cute #54 is a local, from Pulau Pangkor. Well, I actually bought it in Lumut for RM5. Not sure if there's dolphins there in Lumut/Pangkor waters but heck, it's cute.
Where: Perak, Malaysia
Who: Self
Where now: Home
When: 2007
Pulau Pangkor is an island off the coast of Perak in north-west peninsular Malaysia, reached by ferry from Lumut (a small coastal town that links to Ipoh, or from Sitiawan). It has a land area of only 8 square kilometers, and a population of approximately 25,000 islanders. It is heavily promoted as a low-key tourist destination by the Malaysian government, but fishing and fish products remain major industries. Now you know.
