      My Favourite Veg Outlet

      We in Singapore are fortunate to live in a place with so many vegetarian food outlets. Maybe we even have too many, because some of them don’t have enough customers to stay in business.


      Help out your favourite veg outlet. Write a short note (about 100 words) about it to be published here, in this eNewsletter. Tell everyone why you like the place so much. What’s especially tasty, especially health or especially good value for money? Be a VSS food correspondent. Write to info@... and tell us where to find the:


      best laksa

      best salads

      best brown rice set

      most friendly organic store

      most exotic dishes.

      best hawker centre

      best ambience

      hottest buffet deals

      most noble intentions, etc.



      How I Try to Convince Others to Eat Less Meat - Moby

      Moby is a vegetarian and a musician whose records have sold millions and who has performed for billions, including at the closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics. To win over the meateaters in his audience, Moby uses his music and other methods: http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2005/05/11/gree.DTL. In addition to the words of his songs, he included a booklet on why to go meatless with his CDs, opened a vegetarian tea shop and published a book.


      What about you? Few of us have the clout of someone like Moby, but what do you do and say to influence others to reduce their meat consumption and thereby enter the virtuous circle of kindness to our own health, to our fellow animals, to the environment, and to people without enough to eat? Does what you do to convince others actually seem to work? Please send your ideas and experiences to info@... .
