Lamma-zine - The e-Magazine For Our Island Community


Are you interested in Lamma Island in Hong Kong?


Do you care what's happening in this fascinating place every month or even every day? Have you lived there before, live there now, or maybe someday in the near future?

Do you like your info & news mixed with Seriously Silly Stuff?


Yes? This is the magazine for you! Click here for a spam-free free subscription! See our daily Lamma-zine Blog, up-to-date Lamma Events Calendar, Lamma Links, our many galleries and our forum in English and Chinese!

Photo/Art/Multimedia Galleries:

The Lamma-zine is an internet-based local magazine, founded 10 years ago as an offspring of, the online community & discussion forum for Lammaites and people everywhere interested in our fair isle.

33 issues have been published so far and sent out by email to over 4,500 (free) recipients monthly. Supported by local sponsors & advertisers, it's being edited & published by Lamma-Gung, with the help of many volunteer contributors, writers & photographers.

All Lamma-related contributions are most welcome, hopefully shaping the Lamma-zine into a community platform of diverse ideas, views and opinions, showcasing the amazing variety of great talents living on our beautiful & creative island!

The MONTHLY Lamma-zine magazine has been discontinued and
replaced with a DAILY Lamma-zine Blog on Sep 1, 2004, plus a biweekly reminder email to all subscribers.
