Halloween preps are heating up in this holiday which was so alien to Lamma's Chinese culture till about 10+ years ago, now widely embraced and celebrated, especially by parents, bars & restaurants, especially in former-Chinese-fishing-village Yung Shue Wan.

One leading bar even changed their logo for the occasion, starting early with their party tomorrow, Sat, Oct 29.
Should we make this logo permanent? Some might argue that it represents a few of their longtime punters pretty well... ;~}

News from Ira, Director/Manager of The Waterfront Bar & Restaurant:

Monday to Friday, set lunch and dinner includes:
FREE half pint Heineken or a Tsing Tao/small lime soda/soft drink.

It also applies to their ever-popular, low-price Indian Thali lunch platters (my personal favourite!). Gotta try this offer soon...

Bella Vista last night (stairs up to Po Wah Yuen).

The all-new management, cooks and staff seem to be doing fine after just opening recently.

Waterfront - Sri Lankan Food - I woke up today dreaming of last night's food at the Waterfront. It was really delicious, served in clay pots, the wait staff wore traditional saris and they had that rarity in Hong Kong - sambal. Oh, and I forgot the hoppers! Light and fluffy, and oh so tasty.
Highly recommended! Can't wait for the next Sri Lankan night.

Hoppers? What hoppers!!!

We probably had to leave too early before they were served, missing them once again, after stuffing ourselves in the narrow in-Waterfront OSC Santa Claus sleigh, a real first in both of our looong lives!
The sleigh was last seen on Main Street, full of children and Santa, surrounded by elves collecting lots of cash for Operation Santa Claus. Reserve it for your next visit, only parked in the Waterfront till end of the year, maybe longer, before it'll be mothballed(?) till next Christmas.

We just loved the food and the company, especially the chicken and fish curries; plus delicious, but spicy tuna balls. We chatted with brand-new, big-surprise manager Robert Lockyer (of One Million Words fame, his first-ever picture in a tie on this website!), new Filipina staff, plus the vivacious daughter of former Waterfront/Island Bar co-owners Dan & Sharon, Sascha, all of them framed by splendidly attired, Sari-ed Waterfront Director Ira (see all of them below).
(No picture of the table full of former and current Waterfront owners and their offspring, sorry.)

I just love these "Typically Lamma!" group shots, where everybody comes from a different country and lives on Lamma these days; happy, cheerful parts of our 70+ (?) nationalities!

And I set a new record running from the Waterfront to the ferry pier! I shot this group shot at 5 minutes before 8pm, when our 2nd-to-last ferry left punctually for Pak Kok. I just made it by a few seconds...
