May and June have been crazy, but in a good way. My apology for being tardy and not updating this blog from Monday to Friday as I usually do. I’m editing a simple video diary about my film trip in Singapore. Do look out for the video I’ll post on Youtube these few days. There were a few awesome vegetarian and vegan places I visited there including the vegan ice cream store Brownice and Loving Hut. Some were already blogged about and some would be soon.
I have more exciting news and information to share but for now, please allow me to share a little snippet of my life today. This is the ACRES t-shirt I’m wearing today. ACRES stands for Animal Concerns Research & Education Society, which is an organization promoting animal welfare in Singapore since 2001. I bought this t-shirt at the ADEX – Asia Dive Expo 2013 during my Singapore trip in April. It says “Save sharks, not face – Say no to shark fin soup.” Being a Chinese, sometimes I feel a bit embarrassed about this as many people still think they need to eat shark’s fin to show a certain kind of status, considering that shark’s fin has no taste itself. It really doesn’t make sense to pay hundreds of dollars for a few strands in the soup except to show that the dish is a delicacy because it has something rare in it.
So yes, please save the sharks and say no to shark’s fin soup.
