Durian Durian

We enjoyed this durian after our trip to Broga Hill. We stopped by a Chinese Temple and outside the temple there were some fruit vendors. One of the ladies kept asking us to try her durian. Eventually we gave in to this tempting fruit. It's YUMMY!!!

For durian lover out there, how about doing charity and at the same time you are able to enjoy a buffet of durian? The Charity Durian Festival III event is back.

Five tonnes of durian will make their way to Subang Parade on Sunday, July 4th together with mangosteens and rambutans to delight shoppers who will get a chance to dig into the King of Fruits while chipping in for a good cause. Durian lovers can purchase RM20 coupons and enjoy durians for 1 hour. There will be 4 hourly durian-eating sessions to pick from.

Proceeds from the event will be channelled to the Children’s Wish Society of Malaysia, a national charity based in Subang Jaya which fulfils the wishes of children who are stricken with terminal illnesses across the country. This innovative idea was spearheaded by Subang Parade and SJ Echo (Subang Jaya’s community paper) and it is now in its 3rd year running.

I have friends and aunts who absolutely love durian. I can't get beyond the smell, hahaha. I know, I'm probably missing something great. Give me mangoes anytime though! :)

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
