FROM SINGAPORE! LOL
nothing unusual, you can order this stuff in higher end Chinese restaurants
AHAHA its so common in singapore! cheap cheap! $1.50 average price
yeah you can also get birds nest soup, which i think is some sort of bird nes from its own saliva, yum lol
um, both the drink and the soup are actually made from a certain bird's saliva.....some sort of swallow which lives in caves in china..it uses its saliva to "glue" together its nest, so people take the nest and extract the saliva, which has a jelly like consistency, to make the drinks/soups. but in the process a lot of preservatives/chemicals are added, which negates the supposed "health benefits" of these things...
This is a delicacy in asia...
its MAD expensive for the real deal
