After spending two weeks in Penang with my dog, she's finally given a space at the quarantine center in Singapore. So I'm back at my own home since two days ago. I can't express enough how happy I am to be back to a place where I'm familiar and feel comfortable with, and to be able to walk freely on the street without having to cover myself in a black cloak! ;-)

But as soon as I arrived in Singapore, I started to have runny nose and sore throat. I always feel like having some porridge when I'm not feeling well, so today I prepared a simple dish using roast pork and salted vegetable, and I slurped it down in a few big gulps. It's a dish that can be prepared in a jiffy, perfect for those days when you don't feel like spending too much time in a kitchen that is as hot as sauna!

Stir-fried Roasted Pork with Salted Vegetable Recipe

Ingredients:
300g roast pork, chopped
30g salted vegetable (preserved mustard), cut into thin strips
2 chillies, cut into thin strips
7-8 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:
1) To reduce saltiness of salted vegetable, soak it for about 15 minutes. Discard water and set aside.
2) Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok, saute garlic until fragrant. Add salted vegetable, continue to saute until softened.
3) Add roast pork, chillies and seasonings, do a quick stir, dish up and serve.

It's always good to balance yin and yang by adding some sugar to this dish.

Hi. I have a poodle and am in Malaysia. We are potentially moving to Singapore but we understand our dog has to be in quarantine for a month in Singapore. BTW, when you arrived in Penang, did your dog go through quarantine as well? If yes, how long?

Thanks!

Hi Anon,

Yes, quarantine in SG is 30 days. You have to book a space 3 months in advance, otherwise you dog won't be able to enter SG. I didn't manage to get a space in SG then, that's why I had to bring my dog to malaysia first. ;-)

Quarantine in Malaysia is only 7 days.
