"We have been asked to remove all the Dragonboat trophy cups from the
back of The Island Bar. There won't be room for them when it's finished
Penny and I have decided there is little option except to bin them. If you
have any great desire to save them from the bins, please head down now."
This is a now-historic photo (13 Sep 2015, during a recruiting day) of the ever-expanding number of
Lamma Dragons trophies, the
end of a long-time image of North Lamma history. Where will all their many future
trophies be exhibited?
Wastebins in Pak Kok New Village ~ by Katie Flowers who lives nearby
FEHD reacting to the boars' big messes all over the path at night:
a bamboo pole and lots of strong rope. So far so good...
Govt. Notices appeared on these wastebins, shortly after a kind-hearted
family put out a "Boar Bin" with food scraps, just before Christmas. Click

After some research, I found the Wild Pigs leaflet that this FEHD

Birthday pancake with candle, a first for Lamma-Por
Lamma-Por & I attended this year's Anticipated Shrove Tuesday Pancake
Supper, close to the Pak Kok Ferry Pier. This is just another one of Pak
Kok's yearly traditional parties, besides our markets, carols singing,
rooftop birthdays, beach cleanings, Lamma Enduro bike races, Meet the
Neighbours, farewell parties, etc.
On these cheerful occasions you can meet and chat with many
of your neighbours, even the ones you usually just encounter on and off the
commuter ferries, transfixed on their smartphones.
It was Lamma-Por's birthday, so I pre-ordered a birthday pancake from
gracious host & Masterchef Bud (who was wearing a Bud apron
and was hiding in the miniscule kitchen, preparing the huge amounts of cake
batter). He was so busy that he needed two talented and hard-working sous-chefs,
Tracy & Elisha, see above.
Here's my review of this new takeaway in Yung Shue Wan, even delivering
directly to the ferry pier or anywhere along Main and Back Streets:
