Shame, shame, shame! Despite all the resources and manpower of our paparazzi, we have been scooped by the Lamma-zine - lamma.com.hk - the tiny internet island magazine. The story? Superstar Chow Yun-fat getting down and dirty to plant trees on Lamma. OK, it's not like it was a big juicy sex scandal. But still, it's nice to know one of our few genuine international stars helped with greening efforts on the island. It's certainly more interesting than the usual gossip column stories about where minor starlets go for their pedicures and Botox injections. According to the magazine report, Chow planted trees on a plot of land owned by a dead relative. As the relative had no male heir, no permission would be granted to build a typical three-storey village house there. Rather than seeing the plot empty, Chow and several members of the Chow clan planted the trees in Tai Yuen Village, alongside a popular path from Yung Shue Wan to Hung Shing Yeh beach. 'He was really getting himself dirty and sweaty, but had fun and chatted with the few locals walking by who recognised him, even spraying water on some curious bystanders,' Lamma-zine reported. 'Afterwards, he took the time to pose patiently and gracefully for individual photos with the dozen or so locals present. No wonder he's so extremely popular on Lamma, almost like a favourite son, and is considered a true life-long Lammaite and Laudable Lamma Luminary.'
