Salam. Have you tasted Durian before? Well, at least you must have heard of its offensiveness, I'm pretty sure of that. I guess it's the only king that stinks. Or even dubbed as smelly socks, or worst, cat's shit (?). And it's strictly forbidden on board any plane, train or other public transportations whatsoever. Plus, a big No Entry at any hotel premises. Check it out here.
Seriously, as exotic as it is, most peeps would make a point of trying. For the sake of curiosity, at the very least, if not adventure.
But some take a challenge of offering such infamous exotic Durian as one of ice cream flavors. Click here.
Well, not a problem to me. Not at all. In fact, I love Durian to bits. Just like most of Asians do.
Ice cream or not, it doesn't even matter. We eat it on its own, baby..! Raw. Fresh. Stinky or not, king or not, Durian is our lifetime favorite fruit.

Which reminds me of durians in Hatyaai, Thailand. The way they served the 'Pulut Durian' was just mind-blowing, I tell you. I mean, as we 'speak' I'm dying to have it NOW.
Hurmm... wishful thinking. May be it's about time to arrange another group tour there.
I leave you with an evergreen song about durian in Perak dialect.
It's basically describing how durian season could bring fortune to the villagers who own durian orchards. Like, old folks wanna use the money to go to Hajj and the young men wanna use it to get married to their sweethearts. Yeah, sort of. Old school thing. When life was still basic and simple.
So, should you guys happen to visit Malay archipelago countries, don't forget to have a bite or two of this offensive 'stinky' king of fruit by the name of durian.
With that, I bid farewell. Thanks for being with me.
Much love, TPJ.
