Mango bo deen? -^_^
Same thing bt with lau leen instead
When is the durian season?
And what type of durian is the best?
Hahaha i dunno? When it is the durian season, you would see lots of stalls selling durians... along the roads as well.. lol
Hmm, which type, i am not sure either but I heard the best is the Siamese type... which is big and has lots of meat.
I heard that "golden pillow" is best ... and they are usually small.
mmmmmmmmm "kam cham tao" lol
Yep, that is what I mean
Well, i donno.. Like i said, I am not a fan of durians, neither do I hate them..
So i just eat them whenever someone buys it.. -sweat
My dad used to buy them and crack them open ... and that's the fun part.. the family gathering part, waiting for the durians to be opened, seeing whether the durians have meat or no meat.. hehehe.
Durian it good!!!!
Here in EU, they are very expensive :(
The more reason for you to take the trip to M'sia then...
I want to, but need to plan carefully ...
Plan carefully?! -what?
My mum says that people either hate it or love it...first time I've ever seen and tasted what Durian is was a few years ago and I cannot say I love it or hate it. I won't buy it myself but if you offer me a ready piece of Durian fruit AND I can wash my hands afterwards, I'll eat it otherwise I won't bother to make my hands sticky. (but that's with all fruits as I can't stand sticky hands)
man this reminds me of my ex, we was suppose to try it poor old durian
Haha...if I put there dodol, only you, me and aishiteru4 would know what i meant!
Durian season used to be twice a year, sometime in June and December. But now the seasons have gone haywire, with all the hybrids that they come out with. So now you can get durians almost every 3-4 months. It's hard to tell when the season is, but as B-rain said, when it's in season, you see stalls selling durians along the roadside with all sorts of other even more delicious (and less stinky) local fruits like mangosteens (which I absolutely LOVE especially when chilled), rambutans (another favourite), langsat, etc.
I don't agree that golden pillow is the best. I personally don't fancy Thai durians because they lack in aroma and texture. This makes them good for export. Most of the durians you get overseas are of Thai origin, cos they smell less, the flesh is thicker and they last longer. I don't fancy them much cos the flesh is so thick you get sick of eating after one or two pips.
For the best durians, you need to have those sold by the local aborigines. Durians that grow wild. The pips are yellowish white in colour, thinner, looks less appetizing but tastes heavenly. They're more creamy and more aromatic. Some even have a bittersweet taste, which can take getting used to, but you'll learn to like it. And because the flesh is thinner, you can taste more from different fruit, that gives you variety.
I agree...I only eat it when my dad is around to pry it open for me...hehehe. We usually have it at home, and it's best to enjoy it in big crowds, cos then you'll have more to go around and more variety
for those who dont like lau lin, u guy must be kidding. its so tasty. i wanna eat it now. gonna ask my mum to buy some hehe...(my dog loves it as well...)-drool
