Feb 13:  We Love Our Cleaners

Dave Singleton writes:

"A huge Thank You to everyone who donated towards our cleaners on Lamma Island.
Met the supervisor and cleaners this morning and it was a great feeling passing the full box over to them.

It was a fantastic achievement in a short time and thanks to you all we raised $11,150, which means they get up to 4 red packets each.

Thanks to Debi and others who helped out.

I look forward to doing it again next year.

Kung Hei Fat Choi Year of the Ox."

HK Electric Expands Relief Measures to Benefit More SMEs and Needy Families.

Feb 8:  Best Fish & Chips?

Where to get the very best fish & chips in YSW?
I enjoyed them the other day and my big thumbs-up has been awarded to The Blue Goose Tavern on Main Street; so succulent, so tasty, so crispy, such a generous portion!

Posting this on Facebook, a lively discussion ensued...
Some people added their own praise:

"Best battered sausage in Hong Kong."
"Best burgers and chicken wings with coating, too."
"Damn, that looks amazing!"

Feb 7:  Pak Kokians Jumping For Joy

Photo by DJ Clark! He writes: "Not a bad place to grow up." ...and to semi-retire, I'd like to add!

Sunset ferry to YSW in the background, plus another sandbox, er, village house construction sand pile in the foreground.

Sunset watching is a favourite pastime around here, but we oldies refrain from jumping for joy, limiting our exercise to lifting a glass of wine, beer or coffee while admiring the amazing views.

Feb 6:  Dolphins!

The Lamma Outriggers have been spotting dolphins just off Lamma! Photographed/videoed by Amanda Holroyd, she writes: "Yesterday we were paddling off Lamma and saw the dolphins. It was amazing! Update, they are long beaked common dolphins."

This extremely rare sighting in Lamma waters has become the most popular photo of the week in the Lamma Island Residents Facebook group I co-moderate, see above right. Plus 325 Likes/Loves/Wows in Lamma Island Uncensored, a new record, I believe!

Feb 3:  Emma the Child Prodigy

The People of Lamma Island writes:

"Listening to Emma play the violin, it is hard to believe the music is that of a nine-year-old. Flicking through her diverse collection of colourful music books, Emma points to some of her favourite songs; 'I like classical, I like pop and I like tango,' she explains, 'I have a list of songs that people can pick from when I am busking.'

Emma began learning the violin at age four after being inspired by her mum, Chingmay Jo, who was learning to play the erhu, a traditional Chinese string instrument. 'Mummy's teacher said that I needed to be at least eight before I could start learning the erhu,' Emma says, 'so mummy suggested I learn the violin instead.'
