Bird's nest is one of the famous souvenir to bring home from Sarawak. Shame to say that I hardly got chance to taste the bird's nest soup even though I grow up on this piece of land. Hahaha...The reason is simple, it is an expensive supplement to consume!
But then, I just bought a tael after listening to people about how good it is for both the mother and baby. It costed me RM280.
It has gelatinous texture, just like the jelly.
I think shark's fin soup is tastier. But, well, at least consuming the bird's nest soup would not be accused being cruel. Er, am I right?
Anyway, from the research I gathered through the internet, consumption of bird's nest soup during pregnancy can improve the immune functions of the feotus and help the mother to recover easily after giving birth. But I do hope that it will help in improving my skin too! ;p
