    High rentals in Serangoon.One ground floor shophouse facing main road abt 15-20k per month. Lot of other reasons as well but this is the main one

    A vegetarian only do not eat meat but he can/might use leather stuffs and other animal products. A vegan=totally no animal products and food. Butter and eggs also Not easy. Everything u buy/use, u have to know its origins and things used to make it.

    There is not point being a vegetarian if u're into animal rights. Using animal products like leather etc is also killing animals.
    I totally agree with you that being a vegetarian is not enough to totally be off the animal cruelty thing. But this guy already has a problem being a vegetarian, it seems. It might be impossible for him to be a vegan straightaway that that might discourage him altogether. Let's not ask him to jump stage. First try to be a vegetarian and if you are successful, you can condider being a vegan. In fact, most vegans i know of (unless cultivated from young by family) start be being a vegetarian first, then as their conviction grew, they decided to become vegan.

    And its not no point in being a vegetarian. The biggest use of animals is for food. A non-vegetarian may eat meat 3 times a day but do you buy a leather wallet everyday? And how much eggs, milk and butter can you use in a day (most Asian pple are not like ang mos who drink milk everyday)? By being a vegetarian, even though not a vegan, you can cut down on the use of animal products by 70-90%. That's not too bad.

    Depending on the types of diff u wanna see... normally will take about 2 weeks - 3months depending on each individual how their body adapt to changes ......

    The most common u feel or hear ppl say after having a vege meal they will feel hungry easily... thats almost instant no need a few days...

    U will feel more refreshed or so call more alert... these will fall between a few days to 1 week or so...

    This I have to agree. Ever since cutting down on meats, I have been feeling younger than before. And the body recovers from flu in a couple of days without medication... just loads of water and sleep.

    Wow... now you are tempting me to go all herbivore!
