 The swiftlets make their nests in dark caves or the eaves of houses using strands of its own gummy saliva which hardens when exposed to air. I remember being fascinated with these little birds when I was a little girl visiting a relative in Taiping. My relative then lived in a nice olden day house and there were swiftlets making their home in the front eaves , naturally there were also a lot of bird poop on the floor..

 Harvesting these birds nest can be quite a challenge and dangerous especially if in caves and I am guessing that is what that makes the price so expensive too..

Women who consume birds nest regularly will find themselves with fairer and more radiant looking skin. This would be because birds nest is rich in collagen, protein and vitamins, just the thing that helps rejuvenate our complexion, smoothen our skin, maintain youthfulness and prevent wrinkles.

Just the very reason an old lady like me need to consume bird’s nest… to be able to look young and feel sprightly..

This would be because most people will only believe scientific evidence.

Anyway, I recently got introduced to “FRESH NEST” bottled birds nest which is produced by Swiftlet Cavern.

 I got pretty fascinated because it is available in four different variants… Rock sugar, Honey sugar, Fresh milk and Red dates and well, it is actually made-to-order and you can actually customize it to your taste…

How... well, when you order your birds nest, it comes in a pack of bottles, and within these 6 bottle, every bottle is customizable. This is the fun part, since we can actually mix and match the sweetness level and the flavour as we like…
-ex: 1 rock sugar @50% sweetness, 2 red dates @0% sweetness, 3 honey sugar @100% sweetness (total 6 bottles)

Another thing I like about Fresh Nest is that it is made from all hand picked finest natural ingredients, with no chemicals or preservatives and has a shelf life of one week… actually can last up to 10 days, but if you consume one bottle every day, 6 days enough already right, this would be as there is no chemicals or preservatives…read the whole paragraph again…….

I love the flavors of Fresh Nest, as to be honest, they are quite value for money… one pack cost about RM168, but each bottle of Fresh Nest birds nest is full of bird nest, unlike some other bottled birds nest where you only get 20 percent or 30 percent full…or even less...

The Fresh Milk variant

To be honest, I did find the fresh milk flavor a bit odd at first as I never could have imagined consuming bird nest with milk but it is actually very pleasant and quite delicious…

Fresh Nest bottled birds nest can be freshly delivered each week…
