Another art exhibition in Banyan Bay Cafe (Cath's Bar): Senior Lammaite Angela Mary Bhana.
All are for sale, all originals and very reasonably priced. A large percentage of the sales will go to to charity!
Stop by on YSW Main Street and have a closer look!

About 4 exhibitions per year, next one will be Rambler's macro photography, early next year.

All original paintings for sale at really good prices!
Angela will move to live with family in Australia soon, so this sale will help this major move after decades of living on Lamma.

Exhibition will last till end of the year, to be replaced by Rambler's "Planet Pandora" macro-photography of Lamma's wildlife!

As many of you might have noticed, Good Luck Thai closed down a few weeks ago.

Salim, owner of Best Kebab and Bombay, will take over with 3 partners, including Johnnie (ex-Waterfront) who managed Good Luck Thai for 19 days not long ago. The type of food and name are not fixed yet, depending on staff recruitment in progress.

Opening sometime in Nov, if he can find cook and staff, the major problem of many restaurants on Outlying Islands.

In the meantime, there'll be a 1st anniversary party in Bombay - free food is rumoured - next Thursday, but details tbc.

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...

Jane writes:

Rain or shine, Taipeng Spice will pop-up around 6pm at the Tapas Bar, Carlito's Way, on Sunday & Monday this weekend (November 21 & 22).

Eat-in or takeaway.
Your choice of assorted vegetable curries, including ever-popular garlic curry and baby aubergines stuffed with toasted peanuts & fiery spices. Iddlis with coconut chutney and gunpowder. Freshly cooked Basmati rice. Red lentil & tomato soup with tamarind and South Indian spices. Fragrant, vegetable-rich dal stew. And for sweet endings, try special, Indian-inspired puddings: coconut crème or poppyseed with citrus.

Advance orders are welcome. I am happy to fill your containers, provided you deliver them to my house today (Saturday), any time. Ask about Taipeng Spice Catering and special orders. Deliveries by arrangement.

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.
