Durian oh Durian

Durian – The King of fruits. You either love it or loathe it. To durian lovers, the aroma is invitingly fragrant while those who can’t stand the pungent smell equals it to rotten cheese!

I love durian. I can eat lots and lots of durian! I can beat Darling anytime. My in-laws know how much I love durian. My parents know how much I love durian. Everybody knows how much I love durian! I went back to Darling’s hometown last weekend and got this in return :P

The King of Fruit

Durians… ahhh…

Prying open a durian

I was treated like a Princess today. With Ethan already asleep, I sat on a stool while Darling did the ‘kopek-KING’ of the King of fruit :D

I was like, “oooh….”

and, “aahhhhhh…” all the while nom, nom, nomming the sinful-licious sweet, yellow flesh. SUGAR HIGH!!!

I remembered when durian was not in season and I was craving for it badly, the closest I could get to having a durian fix was this…

Durian Love

Durian dessert – Durian Love from My Honeymoon. I blogged about it not too long ago. Read about it here.

And then, several months ago, Cynthia gave me this…

Durian cheesecake. Like as if durian alone is not sinful enough, she combined it with another vice – CHEESE! The result is an ultimate BOMB! Delicious!

Of course I need not mention about the additional kilometers I had to jog to burn off the calories after consuming the above! :P

And then, of all place in the world, the tenant above my workplace is a bakery. The aroma of durian will fill the place, the elevator and everywhere come durian season. I will sniff, sniff and ended up ‘floating’ to the top floor to purchase this…

Durian puff. The BEST I’ve tasted so far! You’ve GOT to taste it to believe it and it takes a very stong self-control to refrain from going upstairs to purchase this! >_< Torture!!!!!!!!!

The other day I was flipping the papers and I saw this…

Durian Mille Crepe from Grand Seasons Hotel. OMG! Why oh why??! I MUST try this!!! Aiyo… how lah??!!

I love durian very much that I visualize it even during our Art time and ended up with this..

Footprint Durian. Click here for the full entry.

But most of all, I missed my Mom’s Durian Ice. I don’t have a picture of it but I found something similar on the net *it did not come with a link so am very sorry can’t link you here, but if you happens to read this, please drop me a note*

It is the BEST durian dessert of all time, my mom’s durian ice-cream batang or whatever you call it. You know, those you fill into a long plastic and freeze? Sobs.. I so want that now… :(
