Hello to all
fellow Romantic Fools!
(if there are any left in today's oh-so-cynical world)
As promised in last
week's e-zine, I'm starting to focus on Local Laudable
Luminaries,interviewing them. Due to lack of volunteering
Luminaries so far, I've had to start this week with a very minor,
insignificant, quite shy "wannabe celebrity": myself!
More famous local
celebrities next time! We've heard more than enough about
BBChris already, but how about Mr. Bastard, the driving
force behind Lamma's very own Dan Kwai Fong? How about Mr.
DickStock, or the vivacious Marilena (Mrs. Nick the
Bookman)? If you want to hear more about their deepest, darkest
secrets, convince them to do an interview for this e-zine!
you enjoy writing? How about writing something for this e-zine
occasionally about any Lamma-related topic you like? Wouldn't that
be neat? Fame (but no money) awaits you! E-mail me and let's start
discussing it! Alternatively, suggest new feature topics
and introduce knowledgeable friends of yours to me!
The e-zine's new format looks great!
It's definitely interesting to me. I love the pictures, and
it makes me think back fondly to my time on Lamma. It's
webdog (Site Admin):
I like the new background pattern, it
is an excellent touch. But I think there are too many lines,
and that makes the e-zine quite distracting.
Mr Tough (re: Mrs Tough's
"Website of the Week"):
Thanks for that - I shall show her
this evening what a star she is.
Best of the Week:
k@ (re: dragon boat ladies):
have seen the "hatred face and pumping muscles", Webdog,
I lived with one of them for many years but was lucky to
escape one day while she was out rowing and had forgotten to
lock me in the broom cupboard. She had her own paddle too!
I will not be so easily captured again, but thanks for the
A fun site with
everything you'll ever need to know about the Funday Sunday on Dec
8, maps, news, stall application forms,...
The site was created & hosted for free by our generous
Mr Tough! On the left is a photo of the ferry wall with
the HUGE ad for the website! If you need free hosting for your
charitable Lamma-related cause, contact him!
Not a single new member
has registered on My Lamma in an entire week now, even though the
website was as busy as usual!
This has never happened before. The last new member was
cheetah on Nov 22. S/he likes "swimming, travel, reading"
and posted this single message so far:
i've installed my satellite only for
about 2 months and all the english channels aren't working!
i would love to know why and whats the chance of watching
them in the future?
No solution yet for this problem, but we'll let everybody
know as soon as the English channels will be restored!
I'm eagerly waiting, too!

years before the World Wide Web!
The SCM Post did a Valentine's Day
Features section cover story and interview with us a few years
Instead of telling our story myself, I'll let the reporter tell
it in a much better, funnier way than I ever could.
Next week, we want to hear from some REAL Lamma
Here's the story, timely for our wedding
an entirely unrelated topic, we've found the LAST VIRGIN ON
According to the results of our Sex Survey so
far, there's at least one virgin living on Lamma! Could this be
a picture of him; looks like one of the barflies in Spice
Island? Nah, probably not... Results so far, age of first sexual encounter: 0-15: 4, 16-18:
1 Understandably, s/he wants to remain anonymous,
hoping nobody will ever know!
Read more details and
enter the survey yourself!
I've managed to find several more prizes & great honours for the
winners of our contest!
will donate some new, top-quality kitchen appliances; and the
Island Bar will give winner(s) free booze tabs! Plus:
Luciene (Manager, Island
Photo Contest: Yes, I would put the winners' photos on the walls with
this exhibition of winners, we'll also feature your winning
photos in the 2003 My Lamma Weekly Calendar, highlighting
your winning photo for an entire week/month on My Lamma and in
this e-zine, maybe even include it in a printed calendar!
Here are some of the first contest
no names mentioned to give all contestants equal chances,
amateurs and professionals alike!
& I have been adding new restaurants, photos, even name cards to
our Bar & Restaurant guide! Loads of new reviews & ratings from
few places seem actually to have been LISTENING TO YOUR
Especially complaints & suggestions seem to generate actions
sometimes, to our big surprise & delight:
The Bistro painting its formerly ugly doors, Spicy Island
putting up a screen to separate the bar, Anastasia's adding
desserts to the menu... Great! Here's some free promotion in
this e-zine as a reward for being so responsive!
Send us YOUR complaints!
Mood is offering a "Wallduff Salad" on its new menu. Send me your favourite typos from Lamma Restaurant menus!
I'll publish the best ones!
webdog (Site Admin,
Gourmet & Food Critic):
Can I suggest we make a section
to list the most popular restaurant by the votes.
Ratings results: most popular! most controversial!
The most popular bar, international , chinese, tea
restaurant, take away etc. The most controversial, such as
Spicy Island. The most hated...
The most ignored... those without a vote.
Do you like "races, sand castle building,
painting, parachute games and all sorts"? There's even a Beach
Doggy (Lamma Funday
We are short of people who are
willing to organise kids games for the Lamma Fun Day.In
the last two years that has been one of the main focuses
of the event and loads of kids have had a great day of
competitions, races, sand castle building, painting,
parachute games and all sorts.
