On Sunday, being the last day of May, I got to check out the NCVA’s First Annual Ottawa Veg Fest 2009. Knowing me, I am interested with events dealing with food. Vegetables and organic food has become somewhat of a hot topic issue because of the changing enviroment and pesticides being put in manufactured foods. The event gave me a good and already known perpective to buying organic food. One of the guest speakers I checked out caught my attention to the change in the Earth and how we should change our diets. It was Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow, from Montreal who gave a good but unprepared speech on the changes and causes in Earth’s changing climate in terms of food and growth. She’s also a yoga instructor and an enviromental activist. At least she winged it and got through with the presentation. There were some free samples I took like Cocoa Camino fair trade chocolate, this One Million Acts of Green card which you can plant and Vega drink mix.
What was unfortunate on Sunday was the cold weather. Silly me, I was wearing my new adidas sandals and didn’t bring an extra sweater or jacket because I was about to freeze like crazy. Out of my own silliness, I decided to buy new shoes again, but I got it at Roots, it’s a Converse Jack Purcell (silly Twitpic link) leather shoes. It was on sale as I had been worried about my bro’s Chuck Taylor All Star Converse shoes because there’s a small gap in the left shoe and needs a shoe glue.
After the shoe shopping, I went to Confederation Park for the free outdoor accoustic concert for Skate4Cancer/The Cure Is Knowledge. The event was great because it also brings an awareness to cancer and people who have been close had lost to cancer. From the photo on top, that’s The Love Machine performing an accoustic song. At that time, I was totally freezing because I didn’t wear shoes and not dress warmly. I know that sometime in May and June, it should be warm but due to unsual weather, it was just cold. All in all, The Love Machine were excellent in their acoustic set.
Well, it’s now June and time for a season ending entry to start Summer. I will be putting some Summer special entries with no witty comments.
Seeya until the Fall. I will be on Facebook and Twitter the whole time, so you will catch updates from there during the Summer.
