Durian fest – Part 1

The king of the fruit season is back! And this time, I’ve had so much durian that I think I'll probably not crave it for some time. Reason is that BIL brought back durians by the baskets! He works in a construction company and was working on a highway project near Nilai. There are several durian orchards near his project site and he’s been getting them by the baskets for a song – D24, D101, and many other variants which I can’t remember their names by.

Can you believe this was sold for a mere RM10? In fact, we've already had a few before I remembered to take a photo.


Plump, thick yellow flesh - the signature of a good durian

Watch the cholesterol, mum!

The aftermath

He has since been transferred to work on another project, so farewell to cheap (almost free!) durians.

Allthingspurple - he's so used to durians now, to the extent he can tell its "species" just by looking at it

Sleeplessinkl - you like durians too? Your taste buds are accustomed to Malaysian favourites now, eh?
