Of course, the best place for being a vegetarian is definitely India.

I learned to eat to Tofu in an Indian restaurant in Laos. Besides I don't like the Indian dishes with Meat, when I was in Penang and Melaka. It looked exotic in those Silver trays, displayed on glass stands.

I had Spaghetti and maybe catsup with mushroom the other day. That was the best meal I had in 8 weeks.

Apparently ketchup is spelled that way in some places/countries.

If it came odwn to that for me (unless there are medical reasons), I would no longer be a vegetarian.

I like life for myself way more than I like life for that anonymous animal that mother nature made so tasty.

Yes, Ketchup is the spelling in the DEL MONTE brand, so I guess its a Filipino reinvention.
I should be more conscious of this... or is that one of those Brit and American spelling differences.

Is there such a thing as VEGGIE FATIQUE???

I am eating at MC.DONALDs FISH fillet with the nuggets sauce.
I never ate that FISH burger, until this year. I got sick of stir fry MSG bathed veggies.
So I tried the fish on a bun.

Now I am craving for SPAGHETTI with CATSUP or ketchup, wish me luck, I am in a big Chinese capital city.

A year before I became Vegetarian, I thought it is INSANE, how so many FOREIGNERS (westerners) are vegetarian.
I met a lot and I would tell them its crazy. That humanity fought so hard to be on top of the food chain and you wasted your priviledge to devour BACON or KFC.

I still have the craving. But SPAGHETTI AND CATSUP does the trick. Dont ask why I am vegetarian. I might end up writing a whole new religion on this thread.

I'm going out for lunch in an hour... I am praying to find something with OYSTER SAUCE or TOMATO SAUCE. I dont want to think of cheese, coz that would only make me cry.

Someone please explain this one to me:

Every time I visit Belfast, and I order a dish without meat, someone will inevitably ask if I'm a vegetarian. I can't eat red meat 3 times a week, let alone 3 times a day! It bewilders me every time...

No, you are right, it is a Filipino reinvention, not a Brit/USA spelling difference. Filipinos do reinvent some great words - KAMUSTA ("how are you" for those who don't know) being my favourite.

Travelled round Andalucia in Spain last year, not good for vegetarians at all.

Completely agree, Clara. Spain is not an easy country to be a vegetarian, unless you stick to tortilla and certain tapas the whole time. No one really understood, that I did not want to try the Jamón Serrano (ham). Many Spaniards I have met think it's the most delicious thing on earth, so thought I must be crazy not too eat it .
Vegetarianism is similarly hard in South-/ and Central America. Once at a restaurant I ordered without meat...
and I was served chicken .
All in all though, I find it a lot easier to be a vegetarian, more and more restaurants are offering several veggie options here in Germany at least.
