eating durian

and loving it.

The people I know who like to eat the controversial durian do so with an intensity and gusto that border on well, ecstasy. No matter how naysayers try to dissuade them from partaking of the evil-smelling spiny fruit, the durian aficionados just smile their knowing smiles and dig in with alacrity. They claim that whatever (minor) discomfort brought about by the strong smell of the fruit is quickly dispelled by its exquisite taste. So much so that after a while, you'll say, "Smell? What smell? Durian tastes and smells heavenly!"

Here are Abbe, Lai and Chona. Bon appetit!



on your mark...

a-ha-ha-yummmmm!


Now for the next round

Just don't get caught with this fruit in Singapore's public transpo system, ok?!

HEAVENLY IS THE RIGHT WORD TO DESCRIBE IT. DURIAN WAS WHAT THEY WERE THINKING OF WHEN THEY COINED "FOOD FOR THE GODS".

Doc, aren't they from Mindanao? hehe, so maybe sanay na sila? Sorry, i'm not a big durian fan myself...the smell itself turns me off. Pero now that you've mention it's "exquisite" taste, i might have to pinch my nose next time, so I can really enjoy. :-)
