Feb 7:  Under 18? Wanna become a Dragon?

Join the premier social club, err, highly successful racing team of Lamma, especially if you're 12-17 years young!

Email Claudia or click here for details!

Oliver, ex-captain, writes:

"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 being renovated.
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?

Feb 6:  Boars vs. Bins

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 on pictures for discussions:

Would Frozen's Princess Elsa agree with not feeding our cute baby boars?

After some research, I found the Wild Pigs leaflet that this FEHD notice referred to, with some good tips (click to read):

Feb 5:  Birthday Pancake on Shrove Tuesday

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.

Feb 1:  Ex-Official Found Guilty

More than 3 years after the Lamma Ferry Disaster, the very first (ex-)official has been found guilty (1 of only 2 charged, not convicted yet, maybe just a fine or suspended sentence).

The 2 captains have been sentenced a while ago:

Ex-official found guilty in Lamma disaster case:

"A retired Marine Department ship inspector has been found guilty of perjury after being accused of making false statements to an inquiry into the 2012 Lamma ferry disaster."
