VSS poolside party

Somedays back Vegetarian Society (Singapore) held a poolside party. We invited three special guests who were all vegetarians - Teresa Hsu, Murugiah Rameshon and Ang Hwee. It was awesome so have all of them there.

Teresa Hsu is an amazing 110 year old (going 111) woman who has been a veg for over a century. At her age, she is still very sharp and witty. During the Q and A session, when someone asked her what to do in order to follow her footsteps, she said "walk behind me". She also told us about her grandma (or mum?) who told her to eat fish for health, and Teresa laugh and said "she eat fish she die, I don't eat fish and I am still here". She runs a charity Heart to Heart services even at her age. She truly lives life. That's Teresa on the left.

Murugiah Rameshon is the current marathon national record holder with a time of 2:24.22. Everyone was surprised when he told us his was over 40 years of age, he looked much younger!

Next up we had Ang Hwee lift up to 120kg weighs. The bar he was holding was already 20kg. It was amazing to be able to see a vegetarian lift weights off the tv screen.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say. We have only begin to scratch the surface of what is humanly possible, when given the best, most efficient fuel.
