May 8:  Pastries, Pizzas and Cakes

The People of Lamma Island writes:

"Tucked away at the end of Main Street, Corner 84 Bakery entices passersby with the delightful smell of freshly baked goods. This quaint Lamma bakery has been serving wholesome, rustic bread, pastry and a variety of pizzas to its residents for the past five years.

Currently, it is run by a young couple - Ah Yeung and Miki. As they take a respite from lunchtime baguette runs, Miki watches the cash desk while Ah Yeung assembles a Pepperoni pizza."

May 7:  Man Dies on Construction Site

Very sad news, reported on RTHK, HK01 video and Facebook.

HK01 writes:  (Google translation from Traditional Chinese)

"A man has died from head injuries sustained in a fatal injury on Lamma Island. At 10.38 am today , a 49-year-old worker surnamed Li man suspected of operating a rural vehicle while transporting a rock about 1.3 metres by 0.6 metres down a ramp. The vehicle then hit a falling rock and the worker was thrown out of the driver's seat, suffering serious head injuries and becoming unconscious.

Workers found him immediately after the alarm, Li was taken by helicopter to the Eastern District Hospital for rescue, and later confirmed dead. The police listed the case as an industrial accident."

May 6:  Proud to Be PaKokian

8 years of living happily in our rural idyll devoid of shops, restaurants, transportation and tourists. But it's my first time watching the lowest tide in "Pak Kok Harbour". Building a new pier is in full progress, plus a jet ski on a pontoon, to be used in the pier construction. Zooming in:

Will water skis & flyboards and their speedboats, plus (super)yachts be next, lining up at our future big, side-docking Pak Kok Village ferry pier?
There goes our peaceful neighbourhood, maybe?
