Thanks alot, it brightens up my day to see pictures of good food & drinks.
Wish I could try them but I am more of appreciator than a good cook. Do you happen to open or thought of operating a veg cafe or maybe cooking class?
Do you have any nice vegetarian eatery places to recommend in Spore?

Hi anonymous

Thank you very much. Crystal is not my real name :)

Anyone can cook and you may even cook better than me :) Serious.

Currently, busy with my little one, so no plans for veg cafe or cooking class.

There are 2 vegetarian floggers http://veggiebun-loves-to-eat.blogspot.com/
and http://ilovemyveg.blogspot.com/,

There are some real good recommendations that i like too. In fact, there are many nice veg. eatery places serving different type of cuisine in Singapore.

Vegetarian Society in Singapore have a good list of the veggie outlets : http://www.vegetarian-society.org/revamp/html/index.php?module=Static_Docs&func=view&f=/index.php?module=Static_Docs&func=view&f=listing_area.htm

Have a lovely weekend. cheers
