My Durian Story

I think most Malaysian love eating Durian a.k.a The King of Fruits unlike some foreigners who are not get used to the strong smell will hate it. But I find that many Westerners now are brave enough to try when they come visiting our country. During the time when I was a small girl, I love to eat Durian very much just like my parents and my eldest brother. We used to take Durian for dinner instead of the usual rice & dishes. There was one time, I guess I over-ate Durian and my body was heaty like boiling in the middle of night. When wake up the other day in the morning, I was having fever!

It's still very fresh in my mind 'til now. That's the horrow phobia...and I stopped eating Durian from then. Many many years later, I have the craving for it about 2 weeks ago. And it's a co-incidence that my parents bought some Durians and asked us to eat together. I won't repeat the same silly mistake like before, I took just a little bit & it's great! The taste I like is that with bittersweet a bit like alcohol. Lesson to my readers: Don't over-eat the food you love very much, it may go to the adverse effect and you may stop eating it for years!

Your lesson is a good one and we should all follow that. I love durians less after marriage, maybe because I married a guy whose family has durian estates.
