HK Flower Show in Victoria Park today on opening day.
Seeing the huge, annoying hordes of photographers in earlier years, I left
my own camera at home again this year. Only a single smartphone snapshot
during several hours of exploring this camera, err, flower show, see above!
It took quite a bit of self-restraint to simply admire the flower/plant
displays and NOT take loads of photos. I enjoyed myself even more and quite peacefully,
not worrying about getting the "best" shots of the "best" displays with
heavy and large professional camera equipment. Instead, how about recording
just the very best not in your memory card but in your own brain's memory?
I'd highly recommended to explore leisurely, it's mostly an absolute visual
delight, full of little creative bliss moments. As long as you don't mind trying to avoid and circumnavigate loads
of smartphone cams, professional cameras, tripods, huge lenses, equipment
back packs and hordes of careless photographers...
So many Lamma-based events from today till Easter!

What did you do with your old, dried-out Christmas tree?
In Pak Kok Village, we organise a yearly party of burning them on a bonfire,
while sipping a glass of wine and nibbling on hors d'oeuvres snacks,
while meeting old and new neighbours.
Thank you, Tom & Jenni for a joyous, fiery party for neighbourhood
families. 8 sap-filled, dry real Noble Fir trees (sold and home-delivered to
all of us for an incredibly low price by Jenni) flared up like matches,
several metres high:

"More than 300 CAREnJOY ambassadors and single elders celebrate the 10th
"'CAREnJOY', one of
HK Electric's community care programmes, has reached
out to more than 7,500 single elders on Hong Kong and Lamma Islands since it
was launched under a different name in 2008.
Through home visits, carnivals, electrical safety talks and gatherings,
the programme aims to drive home the message 'Don't shy away from
bothering others', encouraging single elders to reach out for help
Speaking at today's (8 March) 10th anniversary celebration,
Operations Director of HK Electric, Mr. Francis Cheng, said:
'Commitment, undivided focus and open-mindedness have always been key to our
'Thanks to suggestions from our
project partners, the purchase of bulky items, such as rice and
cooking oil, and simple electrical inspection were incorporated
into our home visits. Last year, we began holding district-based
electrical safety talks and gatherings which enabled us to reach
a bigger audience in the community. This year, we expect to
bring warmth and joy to more than 2,100 single elders,' Mr.
"Drumming up the joyous atmosphere, the African way -
a popular performance staged at district-based talks and gatherings."
