Bro, I am still trying to wrap my head around that thought... ;D

you will smell real pungent and stinky with or without protection. Hmmmmmm wat protection will you use against a durian man?

Anyway, spare me the smelly details.
 ;D ;D

Haha! When did u take that pic?

Was v good to meet and eat.

Veiri's recommendation was spot on. Very good eating and even better pricing- albeit negated by my taxi fare there and back- haha! Balestiers just round the corner from me  :P :P

(And also got back in time to save my stressed wifey from the baby, so the balance in
 the love bank is looking pretty healthy :D)

Thursday night or Friday is cool....
Told a few friends, but its actually more expensive than a plate of pasta at a mid-priced Italian place :)

True. One probably is paying for the ambience of a mid priced italian place but for durians, youre paying for
the quality itself.
I had sore throat the next day. Definetely the sign of a good durian  ;D

my regular durian place is at bukit purmei blk 112, where cat mount king is sold at $12/kg (it was $6/kg two yrs back)

the owner is called Ah Seng, quite a nice chap.  if you tell him it's Alex intro wan, you'll be treated with free drinks and free-flow of mangosteen, and sometime sampling of various durian breeds  ;)

if interested, pm me for his contact ;D
You are unique...... just like everyone else...

cant wait!!

hopefully 818 durian trading has a good season again. bought~60kg from them last year till the season ended..irresistable
maybe the human ear isn't good enough. we need measurements, figures, numbers, calculations to tell and convince us what good sound is. or do we have to satisfy an unspoken insecurity??
