Buddah's Day, Federation Square

Mum and I attended the annual Buddah's Day celebrations at Federation Square on Sunday so I have again prayed for world peace.

Vegetarian Zongzi
We had a vegetarian zongzi which is steamed glutinous rice stuffed with shitake mushroom, chestnuts and beancurd wrapped in lotus leaves. It was rather bland but it is in line with the Buddhist philosophy that the primary pupose of food is to fourish the body, which made me wonder why they invited Dalai Lama on Masterchef in 2011...
