Tai Ah Chau revisited
It was a crystal clear but cold day, when we paid a return visit to Tai Ah Chau. Another fantastic trip!
A bit of excitement when a phone that was dropped from the junk into the bay was retrieved by a scuba diver from one of the fishing boats that were sitting near us.
No word yet on whether it’s still working after lying in 6 feet of water for an hour or so!
Funkaphones performed live at VIBE
Saturday evening at VIBE featured a live performance from the Funkaphones, which was live-streamed on Facebook.
It was a driving rock show, mixed with a ballad or two, and everything they did was their own material. Since the lack of space meant they couldn’t use their drum kit, percussion was courtesy of a couple of empty boxes!
They play regularly at venues on HK Island and TST – you can catch up with them on their Facebook page (@funkaphones).
Po Lin Monastery, October 2nd, 2021
There was a market at Ngong Ping on 1st and 2nd October so we went up to have a look – but there was no one there! (It had been busier the day before, though).
So, as it had been a while since any of us had seen the monastery, we went in to explore. There were very few people there too – as you can see in these pictures!
TIG September Sunday Market
The TIG Sunday markets returned this weekend with a new feature: live music!
Broken Heads entertained us through the second part of the market with some old favourites and some mean slide guitar playing from Jake of Southside.
Exploring Tai Ah Chau
A junk trip to Tai Ah Chau, where one of the Vietnamese Boat People camps was – 10,000 refugees at one time.
Four of us took off to explore the island.
Lantau Gourmet Market – 10 July
Another roaring success for the second Lantau Gourmet Market, held at the Mui Wo Lychee Hill Farm.
A huge turnout, with vendors selling a wide range of delicious offerings, plus lucky draws, a bouncy castle to keep the young ones happy, and plenty of seating in a lovely location.
Ryan and Will at VIBE
A superb gig by Ryan and Will, introduced by Gary Brightman, owner of VIBE. Acoustic rock with their own great interpretations of rock favourites.
A broken string on Ryan’s guitar led to a pit stop for repairs part way through, and Gary and Phil engineered the live Facebook streaming.
Soft Opening of Steak-King, Mui Wo
A wet and rainy day, but the sausage in a roll that I had was delicious, and Super Bock is a great beer.
Still a bit to do, though, before they are fully operational!
Around Tai O – Dragon Boat Parade
Dragon boat races and parades were only celebrated in one place this year: Tai O:
VIBE’s Third Birthday Party
VIBE celebrated its third birthday at a private party on Saturday 22nd May with sets from the Mutineers and Celestial, both of which were live streamed on Facebook (hence the sound engineer images!)
The Mutineers brought the house down with their Irish Shanty repertoire and Celestial delivered a technically superb self-composed musical effects sequence.
Exploring Ngong Ping
Walking up to the Buddha and then along the trail to the Wisdom Trail.
Around Mui Wo
Some shots from around Mui Wo. A couple were taken in the middle of 2020, when the factories in China were closed. The air that year was cleaner that it had been for decades.
