Pavilion’s edible garden creation – 9 Nov

It’s been quite some time since my last update. I have been busy!

But there’s something I would really, really like to share on this blog – and that is…

On 9 Nov (Sat), one of my long-time dreams came true :)

9 months after I first shared my dream of creating an edible garden with neighbours to my estate’s neighbourhood committee, we have secured the necessary approvals, gotten the support of the residents, and started creating the garden.

It’s a lot of hard work before the garden can be fully created, but it is part of the process :)

Here are some photos – but for the details, do check out my other blog: Pavilion’s edible garden in the park.

Love organic vegetarian food & meetups? Check this out.

A friend of mine, Michelle, is hosting a special organic vegetarian dinner this Fri at a beautiful, secret location in Bishan. Michelle is one of the 2 key persons, editors and writers of the first edition of The Singapore Vegetarian Food Guide. Brought up by a Hokkien grandmother who was gifted at serving up scrumptious Hokkien dishes, Michelle soon developed her tastebuds for fine cooking. Her food and restaurant write-ups have been published in Cuisine & Wine Asia, Golf Asia, Flavours, Appetite and The Edge (Malaysia).

This event is part of a Meetup ‘Pop Up Veg Brunch & Supper Club Series’, and is an event promising good food, company & nutrition to kickstart the weekend.

the food:

Starter – Mich’s Salad
Mich’s concoction inspired by fresh veggies and fruits of the day.

Main
Every vegetable your Hokkien grandmother would want you to eat braised till it is melt-in-the-mouth (chap chye). Served with 4 grain organic rice and quinoa.

A home-brewed tea that is perfect for digestion will be served at the end of the dinner.

Meal will be about 70 – 80 percent organic.
Cost: SGD$30

Due to limited spaces, Michelle is collecting payment in advance (by 1 Aug, 11:59pm). Location and address will be disclosed only to diners who have paid up. For more details, pls msg Michelle at michelleleephotographer@facebook.com.

Dream project update

Dream project update – covered 3 houses last Sunday, and really enjoyed the conversations. Had a progress meeting with NParks / CIB, and we agreed to hold 2 workshops for interested neighbours in Aug / Sep. Sent out update on FB & email, and pretty much blown away by the email replies that are coming in ^^
