Sri Kulai1
Thanks to Andora of Truth Communications Sdn Bhd, i was given a Sri Kulai goodie bag which consists of 6 items to be reviewed.

Sri Kulai2

clockwise from top left: Nasi Lemak with Rendang Chicken, Sambal Lengkuas Udang with Rice, Spaghetti Bolognese, Teochew Mai with chicken soup, dumpling with chicken soup and beancurd chicken roll

Sri Kulai3

Box removed, not yet micowaved. Need to tear a small opening in one corner of each items so that steam can escape. Although the package mentioned all the items to be microwaved for 4 minutes, i find some part of the food still icy/cold after 4 minutes, so it is better to microwave them for 5 minutes.

Sri Kulai4

Dim sum items ready to be eaten. I like the siew mai(rightmost) the best, made with minced chicken, mushroom and i think some coriander. The left most beancurd is ok, i don’t fancy the dumpling(middle in picture above) as the wrapping is too thick and the filling tasted quite bland. Above dim sum items all priced at RM7.90 each.

Sri Kulai5

Nasi lemak one of their top seller is quite nice with surprisingly fluffy rice(RM5.90. There are 2 pieces of chicken. The sambal and rendang chicken taste quite good, only lacking curry spice aroma which could have been lost after being frozen for quite some time.

Sri Kulai6

Their sambal lengkuas udang(RM5.90), recipe is from one of their winner from “Sri Kulai All-Time Favourite Recipe Search” competition. The sambal is similar to that in their nasi lemak, and the prawn although small is not floury.

Sri Kulai7

Spaghetti bolognese is one of their popular item as well, taste ok.

Among all the items above, i like Teochew Mai with chicken soup, nasi lemak and sambal lengkuas udang.

PenangStore1 sent me a pack of biscuit to be reviewed. It was delivered via SkyNet, was not at home at time of delivery so had to pick up the biscuit from SkyNet Office near Pudu Jail.


Above is the Tambun biscuit in 4 different flavor: coffee, green tea, yam and durian.


They look fancy, but i don’t like the taste at all :\ Taste kinda artificial.

Invited Review: Silverglobe Bird Nest from Kuching, Sarawak

Evelyn Gan of SilverGlobe Bird Nest sent me a bird nest to be reviewed. Above is bird nest package sent by PosLaju, it takes only 1 day to reach KL from Kuching, Sarawak. There is a recipe on how to cook bird nest attached to the container.

Bird nest drink is a chinese delicacy known for its health and beauty benefits, it is essentially saliva of certain birds which lives in caves, its nests are made of their own saliva.


Raw bird’s nest, above is 2 pcs worth RM130 which weight only about 10g, talk about expensive, but it would still be cheaper than saffron


Put the bird nest into a small bowl


pour in luke warm water and let it soak for 1 hour


expanded. Apparently, real bird nest will expand whereas fake ones won’t expand after soaking


Put into a heatproof bowl, i used Pyrex, but chinese ceramic clay bowl are usually used. Above are bird nest, a piece of rock sugar weighing 40g and 400g of water


double boil the bird nest. I put the pyrex bowl into a big stock pot, base it with a metal steaming rack, and fill water halfway up the pyrex


Cooked, after 2 hours. The bird nest is automatically broken up into jelly lookalike. I can’t really get used to the smell though, it smell of albumin or egg white. Upon googling, having a eggy smell means the bird nest have not been chemically bleached, and they called it egg-like FRAGANCE.
