Aug 29:  More Restaurants Closing

Very sad news from Chui Caan (plus many farewell good wishes):

"It's a real saddening news that, after Lala Mama's Cafe & Grocery, The Blue Goose Tavern, yesterday was Green Cottage's last day.

I can't put words in my gratitude to all that you guys have done for our HOME and been taking care of us for the past 25 years, and not to mention all the contributions made to our community.

Love and miss you guys, no matter where you are."

Aug 18:  A Pet-Loving Community

Urgent message from Nicky, asking us to spread it via our widely-read Lamma-zine: 

But what's a conure? I had to google it:

"A Central and South American parakeet that typically has green plumage with patches of other colors. Popular due to their beauty, small body, and intelligence."

Colourful exotic birds are very popular on Lamma and much beloved by their owners. Lammaites have sometimes quite unusual pets, like the locally famous iguana carried through Main Street by his "Lizard Uncle".

But the only 'human companions' with their own Facebook group are Lamma Dog Owners:

HK$15,550 donated so far! Chip in?

P.S. The conure has been found within hours and reunited with its human companion. Community!
