editor’s letter They say time flies when you’re having fun, but it really soars during a pandemic. As we reach the second half of the year, things are starting to look up and projects are getting back on track. Sai Kung has seen an influx of visitors over the past few months, sparking a wave of new development and housing products to cater to the rising number of residents. Charmaine Ng shares an update on the recent road works around the town in our cover story (page 21). This month marks the 179th anniversary of Marine East Division, from battling pirates to saving those in distress, this year has been its most eventful yet. Our local story takes a look back at some of the force’s greatness achievements (page 14). From above the surface to below, avid diver and Sai Kung resident Natasha Grabner shares her experience learning to dive in Sai Kung and exploring the hidden depths. Discover her favourite places to dive around the town in this month’s outdoor section (page 18). Wishing you a happy and safe September.
