SilverGlobeBirdNest1

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

SilverGlobeBirdNest3

Put the bird nest into a small bowl

SilverGlobeBirdNest4

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

SilverGlobeBirdNest5

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

SilverGlobeBirdNest6

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

SilverGlobeBirdNest7

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

SilverGlobeBirdNest8

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.

Sri-Kulai-dimsum

I was given 3 packs of Sri Kulai products to try out, above is their best seller – dim sum with chicken soup(prawn and chicken siu mai), RM7.90. taste quite good, ready after popping into microwave for 4 minutes

Sri-Kulai-ramadan-dishes

Limited edition Ramadan dishes: Ayam Gulai Lemak Tradisional (Traditional Gulai Lemak Chicken) and Ayam Kurma Tradisional (Traditional Chicken Kurma) RM7.90 each, still in their frozen state

Sri-Kulai-cooked

ready to be eaten, i cooked it for approx 11 minutes in the microwave to get it really warm and defrosted, although the package specified only 6 minutes. Prefer the flavorful yellowish Gulai Chicken, the kurma chicken could use a stronger and bolder gravy. i don’t like the texture of the potatoes in both dishes, it is just different after being frozen i guess.

Sri Kulai microweable food are available in Tesco, Jusco and Sri Kulai kiosk in Jaya One, PJ. They also selling microwavable nasi lemak, curry chicken, sambal prawn, roasted chicken, nasi lemak with rendang chicken, spaghetti bolognese etc.

I like that there is no preservatives and added MSG in their range of products.

FCup Cookie(a “breast enhancing cookie”) is hot selling product in Japan or so claimed, available in soy milk and chocolate flavour. It claims to help growth of mammary gland which increases the fat of breasts. It contains 8 essential amino acids which can be found in Pueraria Mirifica and soy milk. Results can be seen as early as 3 weeks, and recommended to take this cookie for at least 2 months continuously, 2 cookies a day with plenty of water. Reason that it could also be a diet food because as the cookies absorbs water, it swells and thus giving you a feeling of being full.
Other ingredients in this cookie includes Sorbitol, Expanding Agent, Quasi-Chocolate, Anatto(Food Colouring), Carotin(food colouring), shortening, sucrose, caramel coloring, red clover and carotenoid.
Above is Fcup cookie being sold in Sasa, 30pcs pack for RM168, and 14pcs pack for RM88(current promotion RM80)
Fcup cookie also being sold in Inbox, 30pcs is RM140 (marked down from normal price of RM168)
Beside that, Inbox also sell Fcup tea, which has fresh tea scents gently relax your nerve and help in sleeping.
If i were to calculate using normal price RM168, and their recommendation of eating continuosly for at least 2 months, 2 pieces a day, it will cost me RM168 * 4 = RM672… hmmm… anyway no matter how they claim it is natural, i still find it kinda unnatural to consume cookie for… how i wish… haha
Anyone has experience with this? the efficacy of this product…

Tesco greaseproof paper is my favourite when it comes to baking, as it is wider than the usual parchment paper(37.5cm versus 30cm), the most common being Glad Bake’s baking and cooking paper(price approx RM8.90), whereas Tesco is only RM4.50!!! And Tesco is 20 metres long, whereas Glad’s only 5 metres. Be a wise consumer… hahaha
Haven’t been blogging for a while, for those following this blog (perasaan, although i believe i have followers… haha), not blogging for 1 week is like reallly long, this blog is not dead, just not “inspired” to write… and lacking blogging material, more like interesting materials, at the mean time, i will blog some not so interesting stuff… lalala~~~
