Christmas is just over and now is the time to introduce the New Year treat from Singapore Suntec City Loving Hut.. Click on the brochure to view a larger version! There is still a few more days to go, so those who have not tried the Loving Hut Special Meal should book early to avoid disappointment.. Just take a look at this mouth watering steak... !! Fabulous ! Dinner is served as usual on two time slots 6pm or 8pm on 30 & 31 Dec. And the price is the same as the Christmas Special. On the Christmas blog, we talked about the fantastic entree. Here for the New Year 2013, it is going to be Stuffed Aubergine Dipper with Masculine Salad and Balsamic Vinaigrette. Expect to be pampered and surprised... We rate Suntec Loving Hut appetizer as first class and we never get enough of it. The soup is Cream of Mushroom with Bread Bowl. We love the presentation, and the bread bowl is actually quite big with a bread cover. It is quite filling by the time you finish it.. A choice of one of 4 main courses will be offered. Course A is Grilled BBQ Nugget Fillet with Spicy Peanut Sauce, served with Buttered Rice and Veggie. This dish reminds us of the famous Loving Hut satay, the same BBQ flavor and excellent texture. Many years ago, Loving Hut @ Suntec City was the first restaurant to introduce vegan satay to the Singapore food scene. We like the slippery vegan butter flavored rice too ! Course B is Char Grilled Black Pepper Steak with Black Pepper Sauce served with Sauteed Herbs Potato and Buttered Veggie. For all vegan steak lovers, this dish is a must-try ! Course C is Breaded Oat Crumb Ocean Fillet with Mushroom Sauce served with Creamed Potato and Buttered Veggie. Just take a look at the delicious fillet showered with mushroom sauce ! It is the pièce de résistance .. For Course D it is the Pasta Alfredo with Crunchy Vacon Bits. It is generally conceded that Loving Hut has the best specialty spaghetti dishes for the Western cuisine including many tasty sauces as any vegan foodie can attest since the time when Loving Hut used to opearte a branch at Parklane Shopping Mall.. The last dish served for the new year dinner will be the Mango Crepe with Vanilla Ice-Cream. Hurry and call now to make the reservation.. Bon Appetit !

The clouds are bright and shiny although at night the skies are dark with almost a hint of deep blue. It was very dark at night. It is three days after Dec 21 2012. We are still alive. The planet survived... how did it happened ? What's with the ancient prophecies ? Was it wrong again ? Well no, actually. The ancient prophecies are pretty accurate.. The Mayan calendar is pretty accurate. The three days of darkness has turned into three days of light. We are on a different timeline now. Our probable future of catastrophe has been averted. All this is possible because of the will of the World Saviour Incarnate (WSI). If not for the great compassion of the WSI, the Earth would be toast by now. We would have become disembodied entities. For just one reason alone, for the mercy and grace of the WSI, the Earth was spared.. Every day we have now, we live in gratitude for the herculean efforts of WSI and the band of Buddhas and Bodhisatvas of the ten directions together with their negotiation with the Chief Architect, the matrix was allowed to continue for us to enjoy, for our benefit, for our spiritual growth. So we celebrate Christmas by going to Loving Hut at Suntec, Singapore. There is no better place to celebrate. There was a large crowd of vegan supporters as the restaurant tables were quickly filled up. We ordered the Spring Chunk and Vegan Lasagna set. The starter entree is actually the most interesting dish in the cold December night. It has an incredible buttery sensation wrapped on a crispy crepe-like pastry. Very delicate and the taste is absolutely exquisite. This is filled with C'food Nantua with Masculine Salad and Balsamic Dressing. Biting into the C'food the texture is both delightful and sensational. We have lingering memories of this gourmet treat long afterwards on the way home. Next comes the soup.. We love the thick texture. Thick soup has been our favorite rather than the slurpy Chinese version. This soup has a rich flavour with very faint hint of Chestnut and Carrot and comes with a non-garlic stick which we have indicated was our preference. The main course of Spring Chunk has a smoked BBQ sauce that is interesting and novel. And the vegan lasagna is decidedly heavenly. For dessert we have a slice of vegan orange cake which is nice, and the yogurt-like Panna Cotta wraps up the sweet taste for the night. We have been regularly tasting Loving Hut Christmas treat and tonight it is once again proof that great taste can come without sacrificing love or mercy.

Save the Fish Species in our Oceans and Rivers No, it is not R2-D2 the robot, not C3-PO also. We are talking about H5Pio, aka colloquially He Pio soup (Save the Fish Beings on Earth). Before we start talking about the etymology and eschatology of the H5Pio, we want to orient readers to the physical location we are talking about. This post is to introduce you to the latest and greatest vegan outlet in Singapore, one of the many and unending waves of vegan outlets which we hope to see sprouting out all over the island and all over the universe.. We are taking our readers to the Eunos MRT station on the East West MRT line. This part of the island is traditionally inhabited by our Malay brothers who are a very friendly and family-oriented people. Just outside of the MRT gates as you exit to your left, you will encounter a row of hawker center at Block 4, and just behind that is block 7 which is the location of the latest branch of the Vegetarian Era. A few meters away, and you will see the bus stop directly opposite VeganBurg, reputed to be one of the first pure vegan burger outlets in the whole world.. a national treasure of Singapore. Etymology A few words on etymology. The reason why vegans do not directly refer to the vernacular name of the animal species is simple. They have been exploited relentlessly and hunted to extinction. To mention the vernacular species names is an insult to the animal's dignity and further it feeds on the programmed negative predator complex of homo sapiens. What is in the name ? What is H5-PO ? Well, it is up to the reader to interpret but we think of it as Healthy 5 spices-Pure Ocean Soup. Eschatology Here is an example of the extreme cruelty and murder that occurs on a daily basis without realizing the great harm that man has imposed on the weak and defenceless beings. This particular dish described as "tasty" actually is a part of the gas chamber of the free roaming fish. Now if you can imagine a superior, technologically advanced race of Extra-terrestrial who as a matter of hobby delight in fishing out homo sapiens from their homes and cook a culinary delight out of his ripped off lungs... then that is exactly how the fish will feel, helpless and in dispair of the impending death after its gas chamber is being ripped off by human fishing activities. Without the gas chamber, the fish will lose its balance and overturn itself belly up. It will not be able to survive long and will die in pain and horror. Amongst the injuries sustained by the ocean beings include acute decompression illness, internal hemorrhage, hernia and laceration. Finally after what seemed like eternal moments of endless suffering, pain and duress, the death comes swiftly and its cause is pronounced as "asphyxia due to lesion beyond moiety and multiple system failure". Enough of the madness of this unkind world. People should start realizing that discoveries in nuclear physics already affirmed the interconnectedness of all beings in the universe. We are all one. If we are all one, any part of suffering of any "lesser" beings will have an effect on us just as well. The quantum physicists called this the quantum entanglement, which is the fact that an atom or proton can and will affect its counterpart no matter how far away the pair is separated and information exchange takes place beyond the speed of light. As vegans, we happily munch on the H5-Pio soup and realize that the texture and taste is good for the ethical enjoyment as no real fish has been hurt in the process. Oh my God, the taste is so good at this stall !
