A Drunken Lion in Police HQ Nov 17, 2006

I was invited to the yearly Public Relations Reception of the Islands District's police force on Fri, Nov 17. A police launch picked up the District Councillors, local dignitaries and community group heads - plus one "Managing Editor of Lamma-zine" - from the major Outlying Islands (Lantau, Peng Chau and Lamma), taking us to Police HQ in Cheung Chau and back.

The happy celebration consisted of the usual blessings, roast pigs, a drunken lion dance (see above), policemen presenting awards to each other, and, last but most importantly, a big buffet & bar! I even got a guided tour of the HQ building, including the tiny, harsh holding cells. Maybe, this served as a stern warning for me if I'd ever publish anything "naughty" about our valiant police force? Oops, too late! This might have been the last time they've invited me to their party...

Too much beer!
