Hello to our sometimes sex-starved, often sex-obsessed, but
always sexy readers!
Did the headline this week catch your attention?
Yes, we know our
readers' interests & desires; and we don't need any demographic
studies to tell us!
But we're launching a
sex poll anyway this week, trying to learn more about the
deepest, darkest secrets of your love life! We're an R- but
not X-rated online publication, so no sexy pictures...
We also present more
new hard facts (plus rumours, insinuations & innuendo) in
the on-going struggle between pedestrians, bikers and VV
drivers, causing occasional emotional and even physical
Plus several features
Chow Yun Fat on
Lamma, LAP personalities in Ming Pao Weekly and Nick on the Web.

E-mails to the Editor:
"Lamma.com.hk is a very
impressive site, I love living on Lamma too, and I am glad
the site has such support."
"Nice e-zine, looks like a lot of action is going
on on your island. You make this all by yourself, pictures
Touched by God:
for the advice!! Your website on the Island is exactly
what I am looking for!! Very nice indeed!"
(Lamma FunDay organiser):
"Thanks for promoting the
Nepali Party at the Deli Lamma! Just to let you know, it
was a great success... 60 people came for the food, the
bar was very busy while Douglas did his talk and showed a
video about the Child Welfare Scheme, Debbie sold $3,000
worth of raffle tickets (popular booze prizes) and the
place packed right out front and back for the DJs. This
will go a long way towards sponsoring the same group of
Nepali kids through the vocational training centre for
their second year."
Website of the Week:
The shop opposite Cafe Bookworm selling Tillandsia
(root/soil-less plants) sculptures has put up a colourful,
hand-drawn/painted website full of quirky personality, creative
passion and beautiful photos & artsy animations..
It's mostly in
Chinese, but really worth a look! Afterwards,
rush out and get one of Eo's equally quirky Tillandsia
Pedestrians vs. (W)reckless Bikers!
This topic has
obviously hit a raw nerve with many of our members, especially
It has become the hottest
topic with the most messages ever (over 60) so far
amongst the many hundred topics on Lamma.com.hk! This heated
debate is just raging on and on:
We have first-person
accounts of VV accidents, like a VV trashing a (baby-less)
push chair last week,
accusations and charges of
the "old accidental umbrella
in the spokes of a speeding bike" trick,
"bloody-minded pedestrians" should "all jog and keep up in
plus fantasy raids against
bike wrecks at the ferry pier (see ink drawing by
Eleanor above) and
building a modern sculpture
with them on top of the "police box"...

Sex Study of
last week's intrepid investigative reporter "Smart Webdog",
revealing & exposing Ms. B, has turned into "Sexy Webdog" this
He's starting a most serious & scholarly
academic research project, a demographic study polling Lamma-ites
"At what age did you have your first sex?"
Multiple choice answers range from "0-15
(please give your details so that LammaNetPolice can
follow-up)", to "I'm an old virgin". More
embarrassing questions to be announced very soon!
The Lamma Animal Protection (LAP)
made it onto the cover of the supplement of the "Ming Pao
Weekly" last Sunday! They also have a long
wish list for their great cause! Have a look!

your favourite position?" mr 3 has replied something like
"tummy side up, legs bent, human slave scratching under

More on pets, there's a VICIOUS "Dog and cat fight"
in heated progress! Formerly good friends are hissing, clawing
and scratching at each other, fighting for ultimate dominance

But getting enough material & input from Nick
has proven quite difficult, even though he's very enthusiastic
about getting his own website.
All I could get so far are his CD/concert
reviews and DJ Nixmix CD-Rs. Almost no photos, no bio,
no welcome message, not even moving business promos.
Do YOU have any materials (photos, stories,
anything) about Nick that you'd like to see on his website?
Funny, embarrassing, silly, even serious stuff would be
Meeting Chow Yun Fat
Lamma-Gung & Mrs. Lamma-Gung (Lamma-Po), had a most surprising
and joyous encounter last Sunday morning, very close to Nick
the Bookman's place!
tall Chinese guy with his baseball cap pulled down over his
forehead and his head lowered, walked briskly down Back
Street, trying hard not to be recognised...
But no escape from my wife's sharp eyes
spotting his unmistakable & oh-so-handsome features right
away! "Hello, Mr. Chow!", she chirped before I even
recognised him. "How are you" he replied, rushing on
after slowing down just a little bit, probably trying to catch
the 11:15am ferry.
Lamma-Po was so amazed that she even forgot to
greet him in Cantonese... In just a few seconds he was gone,
around the corner into Main Street, and our short brush with
fame vanished. Slow-witted Lamma-Gung was left asking "Who
was that?" and was much too slow to take out his camera...
"Hello, Mr. Chow!"
"How are you!"
Exchange between Lamma-Po
Chow Yun Fat
Yung Shue Wan Main St)
Lamma-Po was over the moon for many hours,
calling her friends & relatives, telling our neighbours. So
happy & exuberant like a giggly fan girl, it was quite a
joyous sight. Last time I saw her that happy, I believe, was
at a diamond-ring-related event...
I like Mr. Chow a lot, especially in John Woo
movies; but Lamma-Po has grown up seeing him in so many TV
soap operas, growing from "Fat Tsai",
the charming & handsome boy next door, into the world-famous

They're also still looking for "able bods" as

I was also thinking about creating "digital
caricatures" of Fun Day visitors on the spot.
Something similar to the computer graphics of
Nick above, but prettier and more "decorative", as a kind of
unique, personalised Fun Day souvenir.
Do you think people would be willing to spend a
little cash for charity for a digital caricature of themselves
or their friend, baby, dog, pet turtle?
But first, I'd have can find a laptop to
connect my digicam & color printer! Any tips?

must be the weirdest topic of the week, debated by the three
weirdest people on this website:
It starts with deep existentialist despair and
nihilistic desparation, but quickly moves on to "Goats in
Space" and the well-known phenomenons of Lamma time warps. But
then it quickly degenerates into maniacal laughter, sightings
of various Dark Matter and Mr. Excreman comics...
