Update 24 Sept 2014:
No longer vegetarian as Kim Chi used contains Anchovies

The Soup Spoon just launched a Korean menu.

Kimchi Dubu Doenjang Jjigae (as pictured) is not vegetarian (no onion/garlic).

You can inform the service crew to omit the egg and it will be vegan. This was confirmed via The Soup Spoon’s Facebook page here.

Have an enjoyable meal and let me know if its yummy! :)

Singapore Really Really Free Market 31 Night 1 (SRRFM 31) [Facebook]
7pm – 11.30pm
51 Armenian St Singapore 179939
(In the shophouse where Select Books used to be)

Note: This event will be taking place over 2 nights. You never know what you might get!

Basically, everything is free! You can take whatever you need, but of course, it would be nice if you can bring something to giveaway too! The last time I went, I didn’t bring anything, but got everything I needed from others who brought and shared. I feel bad about only receiving, that I will be bringing stuff down this time! :)

Anyway here’s a brief background on the SRRFM concept:

Come share your stuff (books, cds, toys, food, etc) or skills (tarot card reading, hair cutting, poetry writing, singing, etc) by giving them to others who need them!

By sharing, we are reducing consumption and waste of our natural resources, re-using what we don’t need anymore by passing it on, and most importantly, showing everyone that there are more sustainable and loving ways to live.

Diane from Mekhala Living (May-Keh-Lah), will be bringing some awesome organic natural Asian sauces for us to try them out. Yippee!!

The Fitness Grocer has just been recently appointed the authorized distirbutor for Lenny and Larry’s products from the USA. (Think Subway cookie but healthier!) Pirapong will be bringing the top selling product of the Lenny and Larry’s range, The Complete Cookie for us as dessert! Woot woot! :)

Here’s the description of the potluck from Facebook:

Al fresco / indoor dining? Karaoke? Card games? You decide (legal, please)!

Choices of items to bring at least:
– 2-3 pax of dish (no onion & garlic) or dessert nom nom, and of course they have to be vegan
OR
– 5 pax of non-alcoholic beverages

iHerb – the cheapest and BEST supplement and grocery site

iHerb is the place to get good quality (e.g. organic) supplements and groceries. For health and also, for the home.

For just US$4 shipping to Singapore, you can order up to 6.35kg of items – sent straight to your home within 2-7 days!

For the month of July (just a few more days to go!), there is free international shipping and if you apply my discount code of TNQ282, you get US$10 off your first order!

It is seriously the best place to order from (spoken from many ordering experiences). Everything is well-packed, and even glass bottles are wrapped well to prevent spillage. I ordered washing detergent and it was sealed in a ziplock bag in case of any spillage.

Here’s the organic living (vegan) probiotic I consume that is organic and full of living energy:
http://www.iherb.com/HealthForce-Nutritionals-Friendly-Force-The-Ultimate-Probiotic-120-Vegan-Caps/42221

Braggs Liquid Aminos (Soya sauce with amino acids inside) is so much cheaper compared to SG stores:
http://www.iherb.com/Bragg-Liquid-Aminos-All-Purpose-Seasoning-Natural-Soy-Sauce-Alternative-32-fl-oz-946-ml/5700

Also, Garden of Life raw superfood made from juice blends in easy capsule form for the busy person (whole foods, natural, and gives you lots of energy without filling/bulking agents):
http://www.iherb.com/Garden-of-Life-Perfect-Food-Raw-Raw-Green-Super-Food-240-UltraZorbe-Vegan-Capsules/18243

Do also check out ATTITUDE, the eco-friendly, plant derived baby home products:
http://www.iherb.com/ATTITUDE-Little-Ones-Concentrated-Laundry-Detergent-Fragrance-Free-70-Loads-35-5-fl-oz-1-05-L/52354

And the best of it all?

Organic essential oils are less than half the price sold here! (You get the exact same one at S$40 in store)
http://www.iherb.com/now-foods-organic-essential-oils

Anyway, hope you find iHerb a wonderful resource! Let me know if you need other recommendations (skincare etc). ^-^

Hurry and order now before the free international shipping offer ends! :)
