Well, No Mr Kisschasy this year, but I do look forward to Steve Kilbeys out-there speech [just assuming!]. Should be a good one I need cheese products! I'm learning heaps about food lately, and I REALLY need to find long-lasting substitutes that aren't crap like that pesto pate I picked up last year. Horrific. Food like that gives vegan 'diet' side of lifestyle a bad name.

This one is in Sydney

But Melboiurne have had some pretty big events [judging by websites] in the past, and I agree that they:

a) are stinky [Seriously, there are some streets I walk by when I'm there in January, and I do exclaim 'this city stinks!' Other than that, <3 Melbourne]

b) have all the fun



Lisa, I just go to town with pizza sauce, rather than worrying about cheese, but it would be nice to find a nice substitute =) The pesto pate was one of the most disgusting things I have ever put in my mouth.

I find it difficult to boo you when you come from my home state, land of Gyroscope, Birds of Tokyo, and some fancy-shaped rock. j/k about the rock.

I've met Sandra Tuszynska before! Met her at the World Vegan Day sydney picnic at Centennial Park last october.... very nice lady. She thinks it's awesome that I'm gonna be studying vegetarian/vegan nutrition hehe.



I'm VERY excited about Dr Michael Klaper and Andrew Bartlett, yay!!

Yeah I was all 'wtf!?' too [working in the restaurant makes me think of Meat & Livestock Aus]. Had to look it up. Minister for/in the Legislative Assembly perhaps?

Quite! [fangirl]Ahh he is a lucky man![/fangirl] Dude...how small is Perth!? [that's mostly rhetorical, but I'm also wondering]. A friend of mine went to school with Brad and I think Zoran. They're such nice guys. I'm glad they're enjoying success...and are 25% vego. Added bonus.

I really enjoyed the expo. I thought Michael Klapper was fantastic, so inspirational & intelligent. I met the most wonderful people. It was so good being around people who also care about animals.

Great day!

Aw it sounds like you all had fun then! Cool!

Such a shame I couldn't make it

But that's what the next one is for, right?

Yep! We'll have the Cruelty Free one in the CBD in November. I think that one's my favourite. Seeing my mother and some friends freaking out because they can't get a coffee with 'normal' milk because they only allow vegan stuff at the festival .



I enjoyed myself, but not as much as last year. Not sure why, might have been the excitement of something 'new' for me last year. Or...Darren Cordeux Still, I picked up some good stuff, and I got some 'cheese' to try! <3 Cruelty Free Shop
