The lady is really an animal lover, she can talk non-stop about snow white as well as the pet dogs and cats she has or once had, but it was really interesting listening to her. At one point she talks about how they can know and feel etc. and she suddenly says with a laugh on something like "Animals are so __ , I wonder how people can eat them?" This statement brought about a split second of uncomfortable silence. While I was busy wondering if this lady is a vegetarian, my collegue broke it by mentioning something about cats being eaten in China.
If you like to take a peep at Snow White, the bookstore is one of the shophouses at the junction of New bridge road and Neil Road.
Yesterday, I ate my first multi-coloured Indian corn from China (which I used to think was diseased corn). It looks disgusting, and it's taste is a little dry and powdery and tough compared to the normal yellow-looking corn, but it's a good experience for someone who has not tried 1950s and 60s food.
