    How about trying the Lo Ha Ka?(think is spelt like this being endorsed by HK actress Esther Kwan)

    It is a reputable brand and the pearl powder cost about $109 and last for 3 months. Can be consume or use it for facial products

      It's LO HONG KA. Have heard about its bird's nest. But I guess those Horse or whatever brands are as good?

        Yes, Lo Hong Ka's birdnest is not that good. Lo Hong Ka one is cut into small pieces and the birdnest quality is not that high. My mum told me that it is better to get the whole piece one and slow-cook urself. It is cheaper to buy whole piece one rather than "cooked" birdnest.

        Maybe the pearl powder can consider.

          with lo hong ka birdnest, depends on the grade u are looking at?
          my mum tries all sorts of birdnests, i personally dont like it that much (prob treat it as agar agar and drink it in one gulp!)

          i think brands doesnt really matter in this case, but the quality and grade is important

            Yep, should be so. Big names also offer lower-end stuff as more choices for the consumers (excluding the real agar-agar!). The slightly inferior ones *break* more easily than the higher-grade ones. Leave them to cook for too long, they disintegrate into choppy bits.

              hee i actually prefer agar agar more my dear
              mum used to double boiled the nest with rock sugar (abit disgusting thinking it is the birdie's salivia) but well, i prob eat it cos it is said to be good for complexion

                Pearl Powder for Beauty

                I've been reading on Pearl powder:
                Long a favorite of Asian women. According to ancient Chinese history, artistes in the Tang Dynasty began using Pearl Powder on their faces to protect and beautify their skin when applying stage makeup. During the Ching Dynasty Empress Dowage began taking Pearl Powder internally as well as applying it to her face.
                Mix it into a favorite beverage and drink, or mix it into cold cream or lotion and gently massage into skin. You will notice the skin feeling smoother, softer and more youthful looking.

                I wonder how many ppl have used it before?

                              IIRC, my Sec 2 Science teacher once told our class that pearls contain mercury. She mentioned an incident in which someone applied some stuff with pearls (not sure if it's in powder form cos my memory is failing me here ; anyway either pearls or the powder was the main ingredient) on her face and had brilliant skin for a short while. And only that short while. After which her skin deteriorated to an awful state, with plenty of permanent spots and large areas of pigmentation due to the mercury. We were comparing the relative merits of alcohol and mercury thermometres and my teacher mentioned the incident in passing while she was expounding the dangers of mercury.

                              However, this happened many years back thus I can't be sure since my memory doesn't always serve me well. But you know...just to share
