  1. gone r the days when i was young n used a bike to go to Baik Pulau for durians 🙂 I wont b surprised if i cant stand the heatiness of too many durians too. when i was young i used to cycle around the island. yr post reminds me of the good old days 🙂

    I used to cycle round the island too during secondary school days but mostly go to Balik Pulau in my dad’s car. My grandmother and uncle have a plantation there and we used visit them almost every weekend. As for me, I used to take durians for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner when I was healthier. Now, I just curi makan one or two only.

  2. I love durian season!! My mum would nag us when we eat it, saying it’s not good for us. So dad and I have taken to eating it away from the house! lol … but alas, I have a cold now and apparently you can take durians when you have a cold … sniff.

    I loved durian season too, not so much now since I cannot feast on it anymore. When Mum was around she would open the durians as she grew in a plantation. Now that she is no longer around, I prefer to eat at the stalls. No need to struggle opening the spiky things and no need to discard the skin and seeds afterwards. Durian is believed to be heaty. So it is not good when you are not feeling well.

  3. Yummy yummy,the best durians in the world come from Penang period! Cheh puay is my favourite.Even the Hongkongers agree! Some of these durians taste like they have wasabi!! heavenly!!

    Yes, totally agree. Penang has the best durians. Durians that taste like they have wasabi? You must share with me the name of that fruit!!!
