Durian? Its banned from most hotels in this country. The strong smell either endears you to it, or puts you off. But that said, durians or 'King of Fruits' is a favorite among local and expats alike, due to the durian taste, sweet and creamy. That is if you manage to block out the (quite) strong smell.
It is also a seasonal fruit, which explains the occasional high price. But when the season is full under way, the price drops and that is when many took the opportunity to savour the 'King of Fruits'. Burp!! This is the damage done to my stomach, all this 5 durians cost only 5 dollars. Its gonna be a 'heaty' night tonight then...
I still can't differentiate the many kinds of durians... not that it matters anyway :)
