Broccoli & Garlic Puree With Yogurt For Dogs + More Variations

My golden retriever, Chester currently has a recurring malassezia (yeast) infections. His armpits and private areas are infected with yeast and no amount of Malaseb bath could cure the problem. Upon learning that acidophilus (the good bacteria) in yogurt could/may fight against malassezia, I resorted to buying human yogurt for him. I buy him the no-sugar plain variety but unfortunately they do contain addictive which are plant and synthetic origin. Note to self: Must look for natural yogurt without addictive.

Surprisingly, Chester loves yogurt while I hated it (the plain variety) – thought I can share with him ma. To give him just plain yogurt is boring so I thought I’ll add something good like broccoli and garlic. I’ve been giving him yogurt daily for over a month and his malassezia is still there. Guess it doesn’t work but I’ll continue to feed him yogurt since he likes it a lot. If your dog is lactose intolerant, please do not feed yogurt as they are made from milk.

Cincalok Fried Rice With Corn & Asparagus

I love fried rice. What about you? Over the years, I’ve cooked various combinations of fried rice. Anything from super simple to using leftovers vegetables and meat. My favorite fried rice dishes are using canned luncheon meat and stewed pork. Not really a healthy choice but immensely good. Oh GOD!!! The thing is I’ve never tried cincalok fried rice before. As of right now, I’ve cooked cincalok fried rice twice. And twice my heart pounded with delight! :)

Fishball Story @ Golden Mile Food Centre, Singapore

Since our accommodation, Five Stone Hostel is very near to Golden Mile Food Centre, we visited this hawker place thrice in 4 days. That’s how much we love this place. Hehe

We chanced upon Fishball Story the night of day 3 of our Singapore trip and my sister remembered this young owner of Fishball Story have taken part in a TV contest which I also watched partly. Since the stall has closed for the night, we plan to go the next morning, our last day in Singapore.

We arrived about 10-15 minutes before 9 in the morning and Douglas, the young owner/cook is still making his fishball in a big plastic basin. Not long after he signaled to us that we can order now.

The story of Fishball Story:

The Fishball Story isn’t just a story. It is about touching lives of others, reminiscing childhood and reminding how our grandmothers make it happen in their kitchens.

My grandmother’s handmade fishballs ignited my passion to spread the fishball story. Her recipe was simple and she only uses the best of ingredients. That being said, I wanted to share what real fishballs should taste like.

Dedicating this story to all of you who honor traditional handmade fishballs, who appreciate the familiar flavors, who enjoy the comfort food at home and not to forget, who simply love BOUNCY fishballs.

Fishball Noodles @ Fishball Story, Golden Mile Food Centre, Singapore
Fishball noodle @ S$3.50. Bouncy fishball and fish slice, pork lards, fried shallots, green onions and spicy sauce makes this bowl a pleasure delight. The spicy sauce is just moderately spicy. The fishball is definitely the best I’ve eaten so far.

Delicious Hawker Fare @ Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre, Singapore

It’s day 3 of our Singapore trip and yes, we head to yet another hawker centre for our breakfast. Why we love hawker centre? Of course, one thing is the price factor and also you can easily find tasty food there. And I believe to get to know a country is through food… so I eat where the locals eat. :)

With the lackluster porridge from Zhen Zhen yesterday, dad choose Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre (quite a name) where another famous porridge stall is situated. We had a little tough time finding this food centre since it’s located amongst the resident flats. We asked a couple passerby and they told us we must go through the flats to reach Havelock. So we did. :)
