Mar 8:  Free Bubbles & Brownies!

Chloe Grimmett of the Lamma Dragons writes:

"HAPPY FRIDAY LAMMA!

Don't forget to come down to Powerstation beach tomorrow, Saturday, for a beach clean up from 11.30am - especially if you have any sailing / paddling / floaty equipment stored in the bushes. (If you do, and can't make it, please PM me!)

Lamma Outrigger Canoe Club have kindly offered to give out bubbles & brownies to those who get involved so bring down a drinking receptacle to receive your reward!"

P.S. March 9: "Beach clean up crew! Thanks to everyone who came down today! (You can't see so well, but there's a massive heap of collected trash behind us.)"

Mar 6:  Green & Happy

"With the new Scheme of Control Agreement between HK Electric and the Government coming into effect from 1 January this year, we are committed to allocating HK$5 million a year for organising green education activities, and sponsoring community initiatives on promoting energy efficiency, renewable energy and low carbon lifestyle," said Ms Yeung.

In particular, she highlighted some of the new initiatives this year, such as free energy audits for schools to assess energy consumption and identify saving options; overseas study trips to bring outstanding ambassadors and winning teams of the "Green Energy Dreams Come True" competition to Dali, Yunnan, where they will visit renewable energy facilities including a wind farm, and see how Dali has developed to become a Smart City in mainland China.

At home, students and the public will be given a brand new "Smart Power Experience" with the soon-to-open Smart Power Gallery where visitors will be able to learn more about energy efficiency, renewable energy, low carbon lifestyle and smart city through multi-media and interactive displays.

Outstanding Happy Green Community Ambassadors examine water sample at Lamma Power Station as part of their job-shadowing experience as an environmental engineer.

In addition to promoting on Facebook and YouTube, the campaign will leverage on other popular digital media to spread the green messages, including producing a mini-movie, VR games and online games to reach various audiences...."

Feb 23:  First Annual...

After the recent Official Opening of the completely rebuilt, highly popular YSW Diesel's Bar they're restarting their long-standing tradition of musical and intriguing events.

Cases in point: a recent Quiz Night and a Chilli-Cook-Off today, both firsts for them! How much heat can I tolerate? I guess I'll have to investigate and report back.

P.S. Feb 24: The winner is ... Annie! (photo by Diesel's)

Feb 14 ~ Valentine's Day:  Cupid's Boss?

Another masterpiece from Lamma's best-known artist, SCMP cartoonist Harry Harrison!

As is frequently the case, quite a few comments ensued. I was especialy intrigued by Cupid's winged boss. Who is he? I always assumed Cupid to be a boss-less freelancer, like myself?

Writing about Harry, his latest book has just been launched, completing the Chinese Calendar Tales series! Get yours or get the entire collection.
