"Honestly, if you haven't seen this band, you really should. They're bloody good, mate. Alex, the lead singer, well, he's got these crazy things he does with his face. Mental. Kinda like Mick Jagger crossed with Steven Tyler (or is that Stephen Hawking?) Crikey, that's a bit un-PC. Sorry. He can sing with the best of them though, and he writes some tasty numbers.

If you're after some good, honest, hearty rock, with chunky guitars, funky bass, punky drumming and a monkey vocalist, you can't go wrong with Garoupa. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that these lads have been churning out some of the finest original music Hong Kong has seen in, oh, ages. Check them out. You won't be disappointed."

Making HK a No-Kill City: Nov 26, 2-6pm, New World Centre Plaza:

"No Kill" is a short-hand phrase for a policy that aims to prevent the need to kill homeless pets by controlling their production. For at least the last 50 years the Government has maintained an expensive, inhumane and ineffective method of rounding up dogs, cats and other companion animals to kill them, at more that 20,000 a year.

We believe that a few simple pro-active measures can prevent the accumulation of these surplus unwanted animals. - this is called the No Kill Policy. This is a policy supported by all those who hate to see dogs and cats roaming the streets uncared for and posing nuisance and danger to society." Click for poster and website.

7th Annual Treasure Hunt: Sun, Dec 10, noon, The Island Bar:

Setting off from The Island Bar at around 12:00 noon, teams of up to 4 (or occasionally more) will set off in search of clues to lead them over hill and dale around Lamma, eventually and hopefully arriving back for a free drink at The Island Bar.

Basically kid-friendly, the route usually takes those who concentrate less than 2 hours to complete. This year it includes just one major set of steps on the route and will also include some simple clues especially designed for children to answer so they can win their very own prizes.

Prizes for the teams include some great dinners and lunches for 4 and other generous donations from Lamma hostelries, as well as some from Hong Kong. In previous years the Lammaites have conjured up as much as 20 teams.

Win some super prizes if you can come up with the best costumes or 'most original name' for their team, complete the course in record time, and/or collect most of the items identified on the hunt.

Being Lamma and being Green, participants are not encouraged to collect anything from live trees or plants, and most of the items sought will contribute to cleaning up the environment rather than disturbing it.

Father Christmas might be popping in to say Hi to the youngsters in attendance whilst their parents wait anxiously for the results of their treasure hunting.

Cost per team for entry is HK$200, all of which goes to Operation Santa Claus.

Contact Sharon at 2982 2800, Dan at 9030 2888 or Kumar at 2982 1376."
