    The soup I am mentioning is the one for the steamboat. Is there one with puff? I must try it one day. We also try to go on occasions only cos it's quite pricey. Cannot afford to go every now and then.

    Many thanks to the vegetarians here who have posted very constructive comments. I will go read them up and check out the stalls recommended soon.

    In the meantime, I hope more vegetarians or people interested in a veg diet/lifestyle will share their experiences so that more could benefit from the knowledge. I appreciate all your sharing.

    the more westernized stall beside Kingdom Vegetarian serves pretty good stuff actually =)

    anyway, i'm a vegetarian since birth, had never ate meat before. perhaps it's due to my upbringing, perhaps it's due to religion as well... =)

    The aunty at the vegetarian store is a super nice lady. I support her business by eating her food almost everyday. Other than that, I try to eat more white meat while at home and elsewhere.

    I think vegetarians eat veg so as not to feel guilty and not hurt themselves with possible retribution, far more than to save or not to hurt animals. Or put another way animals may still die - naturally or not - but as long as I am not culpable its ok for me. Also some are vegetarians for its possible health effects, ie again for one's own benefit; but heck we all die, eventually, sooner or later, ready or not, naturally or not.

    A recent Time magazine article reports that bison numbers in N America are increasing precisely because people eat them. And we don't eat pandas but yet they are close to extinction. Only their cuteness save them. On the other hand how many cows are saved from slaughter from all the vegetarians in the world? 1%? 0.01%? So I think if you really really want to save animals and not hurt them, being a veg is evidently not the most effective.

    So we need to separate the question more precisely, ie you are veg because:

    1. to avoid the "sin" of killing animals, ie beliefs, religious or otherwise, concerning the killing and "hurting" of animals. But this is not so straightforward, for are there no circumstances at all when such killing is warranted, eg a tiger charging at you? But what is clear here is that the preservation of animals is a different matter altogether. Here it concerns solely one's own psychological well being, such as absence of guilt, etc. And also I need not be a vegetarian to show genuine and real care for my cats and cockroaches. Is that "good" enough?

    2. the health benefits of a veg diet. Anyone can partake of these regardless of religious beliefs.

    3. to preserve animal species in the larger eco system. Here the focus is one the animals themselves, more particularly as a species and not as an individual. But there are limits to what humankind can do here. We cannot, for example stop a virus - is a virus or bacteria a living thing? - from wiping away an entire species, say the panda, or stop less funds being available for less cute bugs and insects.
    All these are separate and independent issues, ie I can start a campaign to save the bacteria but still enjoy my steak without contradiction.

    just one question that I always wanted to ask but dont know who to ask. Those indian vegetarian places in Serangoon. Not restaurants, those fast food type. Why is it that we are paying cut throat prices for vegetables that are dirt cheap compared to meat in the markets?? A piece of roti which is flour and water cost 2 bucks.... anyone?
