I just luv durians




















It has been a long long time since I had consumed so much of durian in a day (may not be a lot compare to some big durian eaters). But I think I have consumed about 3 durians before lunch and another 2 just after lunch. Thats quite a lot for my standard. Well anyway it was a EAT ALL YOU CAN session at an orchard in Melaka that my family visited over the weekend.

The fruits were good and I just cannot resist it. I would have ate more if not for the consideration that I am running the Penang Marathon next weekend. Just do not want to get sick because of eating too much durian and miss the race. I will make another trip up to Bentong/Raub probably after my Penang race for the jungle durian. These durian are very green in color and small in size. But dont judge the book by its cover. The smell are extremely pungent and there are people who do not like it. The rambutans there are delicious too and they are called "Anak Sekolah". Those are the best rambutans that I have ever eaten - big and juicy.

Anyway it was a durian feast for me over the weekend........

cc,

Being eating durian and rice for past week leading to PBIR as carbo loading lunch/dinner. There is old saying or tips, after taking it, wash your hands and rinse your mouth with water flowing from the durian skin. if possible, take a few sip of water. It is amazing.
