A shawl is a simple item of clothing, loosely worn over the shoulders, upper body and arms, and sometimes also over the head. It is usually a rectangular or square piece of cloth, that is often folded to make a triangle but can also be triangular in shape. Shawls are used in order to keep warm, to complement a fashionable costume and sometimes for symbolic reasons. My husband’s friend told me that shawls in Malaysia have very nice fabric and the material is better compared here. Will soon find out. I will be away for a week. I will be back next Wednesday (May 26, 2009). I am very much excited with what Malaysia’s fashion can offer. First and last day will be shopping galore for me lolz.
