Hong Kong meetup on Lamma Island this Sunday?

Hello Hong Kong (and Macau & Guangdong) Metafilter people! It is time once again for a Hong Kong meetup. sleslie suggested Lamma Island, which I think is a brilliant idea since I'm already here. We could meet at my flat (five minute walk from the ferry) for drinks, followed by a potluck barbecue. Maybe barbecue at Hung Shing Yeh beach. Or maybe at my place. We could start in the early afternoon, around 2:00 or 3:00. How would this Sunday, June 8th work for everyone? My schedule is wide open.

I have very fond childhood memories of Hong Kong. Sorry I can't make Sunday. Photos please.

Sounds great! The few times I've been to HK I never got around to checking out Lamma. Count me in.

And count me in, obviously.

Not for me I'm afraid - it's Dragon Boat day.

That was fun y'all. I'll post up my pictures tomorrow.

A think a few meetup records were broken:

1. first meetup with a baby.
2. first meetup where visa runs via hydrofoil boat to Macau were proposed and would have been part of the meetup. Did you New Yorkers ever take the party to Atlantic City?

Wow, love the kooky glass and tile BBQ zone.

Thanks for the pictures milquetoast (not that anywhere was recognisable to me). The place has a vibe I can still get from just looking at pictures.

Wow, when's the next one????

I might've been hung over on that date. Or mayhaps still drunk?????


BTW, where's the pix?

DickStock, put down the beer and look here. It's not really obvious but you have to click on the 'Photos:' bit on the top right greyed out box of the thread. It's not just you, I think this feature doesn't work.
In fact, I think it's worth a MetaTalk.

Bugger; I was in Hong Kong on a visa run earlier in the week as well. Missed you all by just a few days.
