Another episode in the popular (?)
Lamma-zine series of me Stumbling RandomlyTM
through Lamma's little explored, remote areas where only the
truly intrepid (or inept) hikers dare to venture. Today, I
tried to explore the hills beyond Mo Tat Was, the furthest
SE corner of Lamma, an area I've never been in ten years on
Lamma. Yes, we just didn't celebrate our ten-year
anniversary of living on Lamma, so can we finally call
ourselves Senior Lammaites now, or does it take 20 years?
But as they say, it's the journey that counts,
not the destination. Unusual for this random & careless hiker, I
prepared really well for this hike, even had my GPS smartphone
to pinpoint my location on the Google maps all the time, plus
detailed maps of the hills printed out with all the (supposed)
paths highlighted. But despite all the preparation, I got really
lost up there in the wild hills and just couldn't find the paths
to the Southeast hills, Ngai Tau and Chuk Kok hills, overlooking
the bay of the proposed marina. The detailed maps are almost
useless as the paths on the officla govt. maps are mostly
totally overgrown and don't really exist anymore. The GPS
recorded my random stumblings, back and forth and sideways,
making it even more embarrassing not to be able to reach those
To make matters worst, I got covered by seeds
with pesky hooks hitchhiking on my clothes, When trying to
remove them they break off and leave the hooked seeds behind, so
you need a pincer to remove each one individually, hundreds of
them. I tried for quite some time, with the pincer from my
trusty Swiss army knife. But in the end, on the ferry, I had to give up and
discard my favourite, cozy, comfy, brand-new UNI QLO flannel
hiking shirt ($150), spiky & scratchy now. I had to
continue the rest of the day, including fancy dinner in Causeway
Bay, in my cold T-shirt. These seedy hitchhikers made me lose my
shirt, the first time ever I lost an item of clothing during a
Another great lunch in my favourite South Lamma
restaurant The Bay (a Lamma-zine advertiser) with a glass
of wine made me feel not too bad about my dismal failure to
ascend Ngai Tau. There'll be another attempt soon, as
soon as I'll have replaced my favourite hiking shirt!
Along the way, hiking from Sok Kwu Wan past the sewage
works in progress, I got some interesting snapshots that
made the adventure worthwhile. Check it out:

The "Lamma Island 2011" wall calendar (sponsored by
Lamma.com.hk and featuring Lammaite photographers) is soon
turning to its last page, Dec 2011. As the main distribution
channel, the Lamma Fun Day, didn't happen this year and the
calendar maker/organiser/distributor, Debbie, is busy with
work, there won't be a printed calendar from her this year,
was hoping to create an "Above Lamma
2012" charity calendar, but couldn't find the advance
financing necessary for printing. Without a major distribution
channel, besides a few bars that might try to sell it, it would
be doubtful to cover the substantial printing costs or make any
profit for charity.
But would you be interested in a virtual calendar, to be
down- loaded as monthly desktop wall- papers or printed out on
your own printer? It would feature the best of my "Above Lamma"
photos, taken from a helicopter and from atop the highest hills
of Lamma. It would include captions and all the HK holidays, of
course. A minimum
$50 donation for Operation Santa Claus
would be required to download the calendar files, or get them
emailed from me directly.

you ever had the misfortune of hearing a faint clack-clack
sound originating from your computer's hard disk; every two
seconds, like clockwork and slowly getting louder over the
weeks? It means that it's going to crash pretty soon and
will wipe out most or even all of your data into the
hardware hell of utter oblivion. Hard disks are getting
faster, bigger in capacity, smaller in size and much cheaper
over the years, but also much less reliable with a shorter
lifespan (average around 3 years these days, same for PCs
and Macs!), according to my local computer/satellite guru.
You can get an incredible 2TB (2,000 Gigabytes or 2,000,000
Megabytes) for less than HK$1,000, at least till the
Thailand floods closed down many of the major, global hard
disk factories there, pushing up the prizes massively right
when I needed a new disk!
Experiences like these (not the first time)
teach you the absolute importance of multiple full backups of
all your data, ideally automatically and at least once a week!
Well, after picking up my custom-built, low-cost
PC for a full brain transplant, I got it back a few days later
with a much bigger brain. All my programs and data had been
cloned and transplanted as-is - a really difficult and technical
feat on a defect hard disk - and it worked beautifully again.
Thank you, Mr Lamma PC Guru! As an ex-Regional IT & Telecom
Manager myself, I bow down to thee and would hire you anytime,
if I'd still command a high-flying Asian-wide team of IT
experts, instead of being just a raggedy one-man band in my home
office during these days of penniless semi-retirement. I used to
love hardware and tinkering with it, but these days I'm much
more interested in people, events, photography, stories,...

by at least SIX Govt. Departments and several oil companies on
Power Station Beach. Always curious about Lamma matters and
having unfortunately missed the event completely myself, I did a bit of
research. Firstly, I got a quick reply from HK Electric:
be advised that the spillage drill was conducted by Marine
Department and we did not have any information about it.

Sunday morning, Oct 30, North Lamma
a quite typical autumn Sunday morning on Lamma, I've visited a
few of the many local activities happening today, taking a few
pictures along the way:
Meeting a (mostly off-Lamma) group of beach cleaners
at the YSW ferry pier, accompanying them along the coastal
road via Pak Kok ferry pier to Pebbles Beach in
Pak Kok Tsui, at the end of the 1st Cable Road. This is one of
hundreds of beach cleanings all over HK this autumn, many of
them on Lamma, organised by the
International Coastal Cleanup Challenge.
Walking the beautiful 1st Cable Road to Tai Peng for another
"Birdo Breakfast" on a rooftop, hosted
graciously by Zep, our Flora &
Fauna forum moderator and the only actual Bird Watcher
present at this
occasional, sumptuous brunch buffet. This time, it featured its own
classical class act, Dave the Fiddler & Nina the Cellist.
Many thanks to all present!

Today, Sat morning, after ascending to the
windturbine via the 2nd Cable Road, I've tackled the Snake
Trail, from Lamma Winds to the Youth Hostel. It's a tough
and dangerous ride for a mountainbiking novice like myself,
especially after recent downpours have washed large potholes
into the very narrow footpath. I was pushing my bike much of the
way and might not repeat this tough experience on my favourite
HIKING path on Lamma anytime soon. A group of Mainland Chin.
hikers was surprised and took pictures of me meandering
dangerously along the very steep slopes. But they were the ONLY
people I met on the entire Snake Trail on this sunny Sat morning
(when the Family Trail, running almost parallel just down the
hill, suffers occasional hiker traffic jams on weekends, making
it a real pain to use for bikers. Also, the "cobblestone" paving
on some of the Family Trail makes bikers' teeth rattle and
pieces fall off bikes at any speed faster than walking. Avoid
biking on the Family Trail (YSW-Sok Kwu Wan) on weekends, that's
After reaching the Youth Hostel, I continued
down to Luk Chau Village, exploring the Lamma Quarry which has
been leased to the YMCA since April, for an initial 3 years,
while the Govt.'s consultants study the feasibility to build
public/private housing in there. A provisional
plan for public housing, clubhouse and ferry pier inside
the Lamma Quarry already exist. Half-way down to Luk Chau
Village, I found the gate to the Quarry wide open, no "Keep
out!" sign or any indication whatsoever that this is now
supposedly a "private" area for the exclusive use of the YMCA
(who hasn't replied to any enquiries from many people about
their secretive but temporary plans for the entire area).
I just love biking inside the Quarry, gliding
through flat seas of grass, riding on beautifully lush forest
paths, circling the calm sweet water lake with an island and large
flocks of several egret species and Black Kites. I didn't encounter a single
person or any of the infamously aggressive dogs in this
absolutely huge area which is larger than all of Yung Shue Wan
or the Power Station. Explore it now before massive development will
start in there in probably just a few years' time.
But there are way too many words in this
article, let's see more pictures, soon...!

The Lamma Thai community, including their international
relatives and friends, gets together every year for the
Loy Krathong lantern festival. The highlight of the
festival features releasing home-made floats (created inside
Lamma Gourmet this year) into the outgoing tide.
The non-biodegradable styro- foam floats carry folded banana
leaves, flowers, food, joss sticks and candles.
"Apart from venerating the Buddha with light (the candle on
the raft), the act of floating away the candle raft is symbolic
of letting go of all one's grudges, anger and defilements, so
that one can start life afresh on a better foot. People will
also cut their fingernails and hair and add them to the raft as
a symbol of letting go of the bad parts of oneself. Many Thai
believe that floating a raft will bring good luck, and they do
it to honor and thank the Goddess of Water." - Wikipedia

current Lamma property boom is killing off more and more

The landlord will redevelop the building and wants them out
well before they'll actually tear down the entire building. Just
one year and ten months since they opened for business, they
were on a 2-year contract, knowing about the redevelopment but
hoping they could stay much longer after investing a huge sum
into the place.

Next future victim of redevelopment:
LaLa mama. The 14-day notice is up on the bulletin board
opposite HSBC right now. Jackson will be redeveloping both
adjoining buildings on Main Street, his own property agency and
the building LaLa mama is in now.
They're also on a 2-year contract and knew about the pending
redevelopment. That's why Green Cottage moved from there to a
new location 2 years ago. I've enjoyed people-watching and many
great chats with fascinating people in LaLa mama. I've just
greatly enjoyed one of their wonderfully yummy fish pies as a
set lunch today. They tell me that it'll be at least a year till the
building will come down. Great news as this will hopefully give
them time to find a new location.

closed or closing-soon restaurants & bars - Emily's,

On the other hand, let's spread some good news:
The Waterfront Rest. & Bar has started to offer a
brand-new, extensive, authentic
Indian menu, in addition to maintaining their customers'
favourite dishes. Initial feedback has been enthusiastic.
Pictures and review will be happening soon. Anybody would like
to do an independent review?
Rest. in Mo Tat Wan has just signed up as a new
Lamma-zine advertiser. It's my regular and favourite stopover
when hiking, biking, beach- cleaning or photo- shooting in South
Lamma, so I'm pretty happy about that.
It's in a beautiful
location on a weekly cleaned beach and the food is far beyond of
what you'd expect in such a remote location, a real surprise. Afterwards, the
ferry back to Sok Kwu Wan/Central or Aberdeen is just 1 minute
from the rest.

The Living Room seaside terrace of the recently
relocated Just Green Organic Store has opened and might
become a great place for afternoon tea/coffee and baked goods,

Looking back over the last 9.5 years of this website - almost
3,000 Lamma-zine stories, 10,000+ forum topics and 68,000+ forum
messages - there have been many colourful, fascinating and often
eccentric personalities featured on this community website. But
we haven't heard from many of them in quite a while, even though
most of them are still around and active. Let me track down some
of them occasionally, wherever they may be hiding nowadays, and
update you on their recent adventures and shenanigans.
First Person Of Interest:
The Stick Insect Hunter, one
of the most featured personalities in the early, wild'n'wooly
childhood days of this website, generating 49 unique page hits
searching for "Stick Insect Hunter" in the Search box at
the top of this site.
This German Artist is hiding in plain sight these days, on
Facebook, lamenting the loss of his formerly high-flying
reputation, together with a recent self-portrait:
The Stick Insect Hunter - Before and After
(click to enlarge)
Quite a fall from grace, it seems, from enjoying "absolute
devotion and limitless admiration" just a few years ago to
the pure opposite of his former big-headedness and limitless
ego: a shrunken head and a modest, puzzled expression nowadays.
What happened? Ex-Hon. Andee Maluche
Asia based artist lost his reputation
Even after a prolonged yet unsuccessful search Andee M. is
still hopeful to find his reputation again.
"It wasn't very big, just about like this (he is holding
his hands about 10 inches apart) but it had this beautiful
little protuberances and a killer paint job. It isn't your
everyday kind of reputation. I worked hard for this one. It was
a good reputation. I am afraid somebody might have destroyed it.
Now I am a little worried what people might say about me.
"Hey look at him, he lost his reputation." or "This
guy has no reputation at all." People don't realize how
important a reputation is for an artist. I need to get it back.
I don't mind if isn't that good anymore or slightly tarnished,
well, what the heck, I would even settle for a bad one. Without
any reputation my art would be worthless.
It took many years to build that one I had, doing the same
thing over and over again. Now, without it, people wouldn't know
anymore what to expect from me."
Will he ever be able to find or
restore his former reputation or even build a brand- new one?
Friend him on Facebook and help him to regain his lost
reputation. He's only got a measly 1,046 Friends collected so
far and really needs at least a few hundreds of thousands more
to build a new virtual reputation! Email:
P.S. Looking at
Andee's website redesign-in-progress, see below, he seems to be
well on his way to expand his head and ego back to its former
impressive size. Note ARTIST and PHILANTROPIST in the very
center of his new home page:

Refs Keep the Peace
YUNG SHUE WAN,
Lamma Island, Hong Kong
- Standards of play in the five-team
Lamma Island Pinoy Basketball League (LIPBL)
stay impressive, but the caliber of refereeing
ranks higher. The men with whistles maintain
on-court peace, allow the games to unfold
smoothly and lend an air of authority to every
decision along the way.
Each Sunday, two watchful referees with
tweeting whistles, constant hand-signals and
surprised-by-nothing calmness stave off
potential chaos at the Yung Shue Wan basketball
court. Whenever a player shakes his head, rolls
his eyes or moans in disbelief, insisting that
he didn't "travel" or couldn't have missed an
easy shot without being fouled, the spectators
should realize one thing – that without the
referees to enforce the rules, turmoil would
erupt then and there.
From a Hong Kong-based Filipino Basketball
Association with about 12 members, the referees
travel to Lamma on game-days and then officiate
at two LIPBL games. The players run, leap, grunt
and groan, mostly looking fit, but also
substitute in-and-out at four-minute intervals.
Like Energizer bunnies, the referees keep
running for two entire games, more than four
hours. No matter how fast the players go, the
referees must match them.
So are referees the best-conditioned LIPBL
participants? The suggestion made one referee
smile. "We try to pace ourselves," he said. "But
we get tired too. Luckily, the player
substitutions arrive quickly and sometimes may
take a little longer than they should" (so that
the referees can rest a little too).

A chuckle never hurts.
Some players' antics may be amusing.
What's the verdict? Which way does the ball go next?

What a Tasty Sport!
October 31, 2011
When players shimmy, shake, fake or flutter
to deceive opponents, those aren't even the best
moves in the Lamma Island Pinoy Basketball
League (LIPBL). The most exceptional (and
delicious) skills aren't seen on the local
basketball court, but rather in nearby kitchens.
Tasty food for players, and sometimes for
fans too, is one of the league's best features.
Invariably, food materializes after the games.
Sometimes players or league officials also snack
before, or even during, games. "Often it looks
more like an eating party than a sports event,"
said one spectator.
Prepared by team supporters or sponsors keen
to encourage and nourish league participants,
the food turns the post-game sidelines into a
mini-party, akin to a community picnic. Winning
players celebrate victory, and those who lost
devour comfort food. Even the referees indulge.
Spaghetti, roast chicken, sandwiches and
cookies appeared at the games on October 30. As
players warmed up just before a key contest
between the Lamma Archers (blue uniforms) and
the Awesome Tigers (green), a Tigers player
lingered near the scorers' table. With a plate
in hand, he ate heartily, munching on chicken
(surely not the best way to prepare for running
and jumping, but Tigers are fierce carnivores).
Finally, a teammate approached, saying, "Hey,
man. This is no time to eat more chicken."

After a tough defeat, the Archers need platefuls of
