Zulu’s food adventure

Hi, I’m Zulu. Soy and her sister are living with me during their food adventure to Hong Kong.  I love having them around to play with. I enthusiastically wag my tail whenever I’m around them and use my big paws to encourage them to keep patting me. One thing though, I’m very jealous that they get to go out to explore everyday, so I decided to have a food adventure of my very own!

One day while they were out exploring and left me to my devices, I followed my sense of smell into Soy’s room and found some slices of Kuih Lapis (layered cake) that Soy had bought in Singapore. I perked my ears and could not hear anyone around so I put my plan to action! I used my nose to push the package off the shelf and on to the floor. Then I used my big paw to come down on the plastic packaging to open it. The cake was very yummy and buttery and I quickly wolfed it down.

I looked around for more food and saw a very attractive box, wow, that should hold some treasures! After knocking it down from the kids’ play table, I bit into the box… hmmm… didn’t taste very pleasant and after smelling it further I decided that there was no food in it and left it alone.

When Soy and her sister came back, I tried to look sorry that I just could not help myself. It did not work though as  I was very happy to see them and my tail kept wagging. They did not scold me as I did not know better when my ‘hunger’ took over. In fact, they got me presents, even yummier presents. It was a pig’s snout and pig’s ear… I gobbled them in no time.

The next day, Soy and her sister went out again! Dolly (my master’s housekeeper and my early morning walker) had cleaned Soy‘s room and had stepped out of the house to run some errands. Seeing the door open, I wondered if there would be more delights for me… Sure enough there were some soup packets that Soy had bought for her mom in the room. I took one sniff of it, hmmmm… dried fish maw. It was a little difficult ripping the package apart, but for such a delectable item, I was willing to do anything.  I had 4 servings of fish maw and even tried some of the monkey mushroom and dried herbs, but they did not taste as nice.

I’m going to miss Soy and her sister when they go home, cos I won’t have them around. I will also miss the variety of food that they bring back for me to sample. It was nice to talk to all of you, and I will definitely continue exploring and eating all the food I can get my paws on!

    *laughs* Oh, you poor thing! I’m quite impressed that Zulu wasn’t taken to task for this – I remember sobbing at the age of ten when my dog chewed up a tiny little violin replica that a friend had brought me back from Austria.

    I hope we eventually get to see what Soy ate while Zulu was foraging in her room! :)

    We were really wondering if his tummy would be upset, especially with the herbs as we weren’t sure what exactly he’d eaten, but it was all natural, and turns out that greedy guts has guts of steel!

    He is, right?!!! :)

    Oh noo!! Hee I did think he was an absolute imp, but it’s hard to be angry with Zulu cos he’s such a doofus! Just look at that face… and yes, I will be talking about my own food finds too ;)

    Yaaaaaaa! But we were worried at what the oil might do to his tummy. Luckily, nothing happened :)

    We had a dog like that once, she found a bag of sweets in a handbag so nibbled a tiny hole in the plastic bag and licked and licked the sweets away. At Easter she found the kiddies stash of Easter eggs and ate them before they woke up too! When we lived in Singapore our dog would only eat rice and fish, not meat or anything else, not doggie biscuits, fish or nothing!

    Yeah… that’s why it wasn’t really possible to be angry, cos he really was quite smart ;)

    Oh noooooo!! The poor kiddies without Easter eggs! And that’s worrying cos of what chocolate does to dogs. Hmm our dog in S’pore also ate rice and meat.. she didn’t want to have anything to do with dog food though!
