Looking for delicious, easy-to-make veg recipes? If you speak Mandarin, tune into Radio 95.8 this week Mon-Fri at 11.10am for one recipe a day from VSS Treasurer Wong Kee Yew.
Aromatherapy is becoming more familiar. However, how much do we truly know about this alternative therapy? In VSS’ June Wellness Seminar, Pauline Chau will educate us on theoretical and practical aspects of aromatherapy.
The seminar will be held Fri, 30 June, 8-9.30pm at Living Space, 17, Hong Kong Street, near Clarke Quay MRT, Tel: 65 340 340. Admission fee = $5 per person. Please email kee_yew@... to reserve your seats early.
Vegetarianism has been around a long time. For example, an eBook (price = US$10) features veg recipes from the Victorian era. To learn more, including viewing of free veg (not vegan) recipes: http://www.victorianvegetarianrecipes.com.

Japanese cuisine has always offered a variety of veg options, but even better is news that we in Singapore can now enjoy Japanese vegetarian catering, with meals from Enso Kitchen, who are offering Shojin Ryori, a Japanese vegetarian cuisine that originated from Zen temples, taking it from its origins in Japan to your home or office premises. This is a catering service, not a restaurant. For details: http://www.ensokitchen.com.
Indonesian is another veg-friendly cuisine. Further proof of this is that Istano Indonesian Restaurant, near the Merlion at One Fullerton #01-05, 1, Fullerton Rd , has a full page of veggie dishes priced from $12-$18. They also cater for strict vegetarians, such as Jains. Tel: 65381228, Lunch: 11.30am-3pm, Dinner: 6pm-10.30pm.
Here’s yet another article linking meat, in this case, grilled meat, and cancer. The link, according to The Cancer Project, is cancer-causing compounds called heterocyclic amines (HCAs). Most grilled meat has lots of HCAs, whereas grilled veggies have only negligible amounts. Learn more at http://www.cancerproject.org/media/news/fiveworstfoodsreport.php.

A reader sent in these two video clips. No way to know how typical the scenes are.
Remember: when the buying stops, the killing can too.
A reader was recently in Lhasa , the capital of Tibet , and reports that veg food is easy to find there. Plus, the city boasts two veg restaurants:

Linju Lu (near Tibet University , West Gate),
2. Holy Land Vegetarian Restaurant
Lin Kuo Dong Lu ( Lin Kuo Eastern Road ), near the
Lhasa Public Security Bureau and opposite Lebailong Supermarket
