Drone and Phone is a weekly short video series featuring one day outdoor activities in and around Asia. DJ Clark and friends create the videos using a small drone and a phone to give a unique viewpoint.

Jan 14:  Chloe Founded ‘Write or Die’

The People of Lamma Island writes:

"Chloe founded 'Write or Die' six months after arriving on the island. 'I think a lot of people benefit from having feedback and encouragement from a supportive community,' she explains, 'so when I put a call out and asked if there were any writers who wanted company, I was inundated with messages.'..."

Jan 13:  ‘Staying Home, Staying Safe, Staying Creative’

Many people are staying home during the Covid-19 pandemic, taking up new hobbies like baking or knitting. My main home hobby, besides running this Lamma-zine, has become creating fractal computer graphics with the amazingly powerful Mandelbulb 3D program.

See #53-55 above in my current series, variations of the same set of fractal formulas, tweaked and experimented on over days with varying parameters, then rendered overnight in high resolution on my home office PC (click to enlarge).

See more of my stuff in higher resolution at Lamma Gung Art & Photography.

Jan 8:  Fascinating Podcasts

"The Hong Kong History Podcast are recordings of conversations between two Hong Kong resident neighbours, who share a fascination with Hong Kong's intriguing and complicated history but with an emphasis on Hong Kong's story as a major port."

Fascinating and very informative podcast by my close neighbours DJ Clark and Stephen Davies! 6 weekly episodes so far, with frequent details of Pak Kok's and Lamma's history:

Beginnings, What happened next, The blockade, Steamy disasters, World War I, World War 2.

They're taking a Xmas/NY break for now as Stephen and his wife are laying low in the UK for now, plus they'll be in extended hotel quarantine after returning in a few weeks.

Jan 7:  Little Thai

The People of Lamma Island writes:

"Little Thai is positioned between the tennis courts and the beginning of Snake Path, making up half of a distractive pair of neat and colourful single-storey shops. On weekends, the entrance of Little Thai is barely visible with crowds of visitors gathering to browse products and buy a bag of Sabina's famous Thai prawn crackers on their way to the beach. 'I lived in Phuket for many years, I got to know what the tourists like', Sabina says with a smile...."

Jan 5:  Harry Went Viral

Congratulations to Harry, very impressive! I'd suggest to negotiate a big bonuses for such great social media figures from the SCMP.

Wow, these are numbers that the Lamma-zine is only dreaming of, on and off Facebook. Our views have been decreasing since the days of 4+ million monthly hits, but are still by far the highest for any Lamma-related website. Email/message me if you disagree!  ;~}

Jan 3:  Mute Planet

Another amazing photo from Mute Planet's Mark Malby! A little secret beach 5 minutes from the YSW ferry pier, a favourite spot of myself and other photographers. Amazing views of YSW bay from inside that pavilion!

Mark's one of my inspirations. This is the best sunset I manage to capture these days, see above. Gotta try harder!

Jan 2:  Flor & Carlos

The People of Lamma Island/a> writes:

"...With Flor hailing from Argentina, and Carlos from Spain, the pair have travelled the world performing for various theatres and circus companies, but they never feel far from home; 'Circus is like family because we are connected in sharing this skill,' Flor says. 'The circus community is really supportive,' Carlos adds.

Lamma provides Flor and Carlos with the ideal space to practice their art. The sandy beaches act as a safer alternative to concrete when they try a new trick, and the open areas of their village remove the constraints of walls and ceilings, giving them complete freedom to create new routines. The culture of the island also acts as inspiration for them, 'Lamma is an artistic island, full of many different people, and everyone has something to offer,' Carlos explains, 'it feels like family, everyone looks out for one another. That is the soul of the island'..."
