      Talk and Food Demo for the Elderly

      Recently, VSS has been doing a lot of activities for students, but we like working with all ages. For example, last Fri, we did a Mandarin-language talk/food demo for a group of elderly people at Poh Ern Shih temple in Pasir Panjang. If you know good venues/audiences, pls contact VSS at info@...


      Making Our Views Heard on Climate Change

      VSS received the following email. We hope everyone will take this and any other opportunity to spread the word about the link between meat eating and climate.


      In Singapore , a new inter-ministerial committee has been set up to look into the sustainable development in all sectors. National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan and Environment and Water Resources Minister Yaacob Ibrahim will co-chair the committee, which will also include Minister for Finance Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Minister for Transport Raymond Lim, and Minister of State for Trade and Industry S. Iswaran.


      The committee is seeking ideas / views from the members of the public, with contact as follows:


      *SMS or e-mail us your views*


      WHAT can be done to help ensure that sustainable development takes root

      here? Are there particular areas which you think the ministerial committee

      ought to also examine?


      E-mail * stpol@... * < stpol@... > or send an SMS to 9827-7514.

      For SMS messages, type stpol, followed by a space and then your views.

      Good Reading from Malaysia – Available in JB

      Our last issue had ordering info for the Consumers Association of Penang (CAP)’s - http://en.cap.org.my - very good booklet entitled ‘What’s Wrong with Eating Meat’. A reader wrote in to say that,


      It is definitely NOT Necessary to go all the way to Penang to obtain a copy. If you or a friend goes to Johor Baru, you can purchase a copy of CAP's bi-monthly newsletter at Popular's Book Shop at City Square or their newest store -HARRIS at the Aeon @ Tebrau City along Kota Tinggi Highway (opposite Johor Jaya) after Carrefour. At the back page of every issue there is an ORDER FORM for all their booklets and its prices. Therefore, with a credit card, you can purchase CAP materials from the comfort of your home.

      The Gerson diet is all vegetarian.  However, when it comes to some of the supplement, one can chose to take strictly vegetarian supplements or a mixture of others.  So it is not a problem for vegetarians to practice Gerson Therapy. http://www.gerson.org/default.asp

      A reader wrote in to inform us that the VGML Café at Morse Road , near Harbourfront MRT, moved to Lakeside last month. If anyone has further details, please let us know. Thx.


      A Recommended Recipe Site

      Sometimes, people write to VSS asking us to recommend cookbooks and recipes. Of course, everyone’s tastes differ. The internet – including the VSS site - is a great place for recipes, with thousands, if not millions, of veg recipes on offer. One reader wrote in to suggest the following site for veg recipes, including veggie burgers: http://www.howtocookeverything.tv/htce/Home/index.html


      The person behind the site isn’t veg – so there are also non-veg recipes - but as the site’s creator learns more about the horrors of meat production, he is becoming increasingly veg friendly.


      More on the Horrors of Factory Farming

      This article tells about the illnesses contracted by people working in slaughterhouses: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/03/AR2008020302580.html?hpid=topnews

      Veggie Pride Parade
      The First Veggie Pride Parade in America will take place in Greenwich Village , New York City, on 18 May. Parade participants are encouraged to dress up in costumes and to wear sign boards announcing their pride in their vegetarian lifestyle. Local restaurants will represent themselves with banners. And otherwise, contingents from all walks of life are encouraged to get involved.

      The parade is fashioned after, and will take place the same weekend as, the Veggie Pride Parade in Paris . The Parisian parade was the first of its kind in the world and has been going on annually since 2001. Visit http://www.veggieprideparade.org for more information about the Parisian roots of the parade as well as the genesis for the New York spin-off.
