Greening Kapit

May 1st (2008) - It wasn't supposed to be that grand of an event. Having the highest official in Kapit, Sarawak, accepting our fellow's invitation to attend our "Kapit Go Veg, Go Green" campaign was totally unexpected.

Thanks to fellow pencinta alam for boldly jump-starting the Kapit Green campaign, many of us learned that success of manning an event wasn't only that unstinting determination, but keeping pure and positive at heart, coupled with God's grace and blessings.

To kick start the event, Tuan Residen Hang Tuah Merawin, gave a speech. He was very supportive of our mission, and agreed that vegetarian lifestyle is essential for the health of Mother Earth and all lives. He was also impressed that vegetarian food comes in a wide variety, and that they are delicious and some even taste like real meat.

Also present were Temenggung Sng, Councillor Ngo, and Chairman Ma of Kapit's Restaurants & Coffeeshops Association. Says Temenggung Sng, "After this, I will also encourage my family to take more veg!" while Councillor Ngo, can't agree more that a vegetarian lifestyle is the best way to save Earth. Chairman Ma, awed by the colorful and sumptuous vegetarian delicacies stated that even though he can't go veg 100% yet, he certainly would be cutting down a lot on meat.

SOS-Save the Planet DVD was played and SOS flyers were distributed to all. Response was positive. Our home-cooked vege food were gone within an hour! We were glad to have provided Kapitans such a delectable vege lunch. See the thumbs up? :) Great job to our head chef!!!

We thank Tuan Residen, Temenggung, Councillor, Chairman Ma, and all Kapitans that came by and showed their immense support. Thanks for Going Green, for Kapit and its future generation and for a sustainable Earth, cheers!!!
