10 000 seeds for a better world

Today I attended Singapore vegetarian society's vcd packing day where volunteers will spend time packing the "seeds for a better world" vcd into packets for distribution to the public. It was a very "factory work" process where I was reminded of the times I helped to pack meals during another volunteering event. Though uncomparable to the fun of meal packing, the simple monotonous work is not to be underestimated and can actually tire you out, I ended up with shoulder aches now. Thankfully, the conversations, jokes and music keeps you going.

Lunch was catered from Nature vegetarian corporation, with curry, spicy "mutton" gravy, "yong tau fu", stir-fried kang kong and stir fried brinjal. One of the volunteers sponsored an excellent, nutritious meal of rice, that is cooked with several ingredients including wild rice and almonds. Yum! We also had several volunteers who brought fruits - rosy apples, rambutans, mangosteens etc. Not forgetting tea, I selected green tea and the "Pearl of the Orient". The Pearl of the Orient had a very aromatic smell, yet it's light to the taste despite that.

I finally bought Rice Dream, cocoa marble fudge flavour, SGD$7.60 a pint. Yum! Again, mum said it's just like normal ice-cream, without the dairy smell. But she also commented that it's not as rich and creamy as usual ice-cream. The chocolate taste though, was really rich. :d

How cool to volunteer for a good cause. And I've never tried the rice dream brand ice cream, but I'm one of those crazy people that doesn't love rice milk! Very cool that your mother liked it, and you too!

Hi bazu, no it doesn't taste like rice milk at all! In fact it taste creamy, just not as creamy as the milk ice-creams :)

Ah, they really should start making vegan ice cream in Singapore! I've introduced the idea of making it in China to a few friends here, one seemed interested but doesn't really have resources to kick it off. It's just funny how it's absolutely everywhere in a cold country like Finland while hot places have hardly any and at such high prices.

Yes it's interesting you all have ice-cream at such cold places, do people really eat icecream on freezing days at these places? we need ice-cream all year round, the temperature can't get too low over here.

anonymous,
I bought it from Cold Storage, I suppose almost all of Cold Storage will have a stock of Rice Dream if I am not wrong.
