I just got a phone call from a good friend of mine that she's going to be getting married in Hong Kong and that she's going to have a whole week of events planned out the week before the wedding. First though was, omg, what am I gonna eat being a superhero vegan!? How do I deal with this? I know that the places they're going to go and eat and plan meals are are not vegan. And it's in a place where I don't know the language :P I don't want to starve, but I don't want to be the burden.
Thank you thank you all for your feedback. It makes me feel a lot better to know I can come here for support :) I thought the best thing to do is talk to my friend about it. I actually just wrote my friend telling her that I am having some anxiety about being vegan in Hong Kong because I want to go to all the places they go but don't want to be a burden. It helped just telling her about. I have not heard back from her yet but I'll let you guys know ;)
There is an iphone app that can convert the word vegan in lots of languages, you could try showing that to a waiting staff? The far east is the home of tofu and seitan remember you are safe with that. Just watch out for fish sauce added to sauces. I have my own vegan blog http://www.asavegan.co.uk I hope you like it
