An Indulgance Journey For Durians . . . .

It was not easy to write today’s post as I had a totally with mixed feelings. I was down with fever in the morning at work and shivered for two hours in my room, ended up totally knocked out sitting in the pantry. At noon, I read about BBO’s interview with The Malay Mail(our local newspaper), it was very well written by Gabey Goh.(Thanks Gabey). Then came the bad news over the phone, a very close aunt of mine had informed me that she had lung cancer . . . . shit, niamah, how can this be, she is still very healthy . . . . she was crying on the phone, so was I. . . Once we ended the phone conversation, I quickly informed all my close relatives . . . I went to the clinic at 2pm for a check up and was referred to the specialist centre as the doctor worried that I might had denggi . . . gosh and end up 3 hours there, did my blood and urine check. I was fine, just fever and no denggi. Tonight my aunt sounded positive on the phone and she had relatives over . . . sometimes I just wonder how fragile we can be.

Lets get back to today’s post, it is the durian session this moment and plenty available. So with my friends we visited a durian farm along the Karak highway to Bentong which is about an hour drive from my place. There were plenty of fruit trees such as durian, rambutan and mangosteen.

Walking up the durian farm can be interesting yet can be very exhausting.

Arambutan

Rambutans, a delicious white juicy flesh covered with a hairy red skin.

Amangosteen

My favourite fruit, mangosteen.

The uncle who was carrying the huge ratan case had caught my interest. He will carry this case behind his shoulder and he will walk from each durian tree to another to collect the durian fruits.

The farmers collected all the durians, put them at the back of their ford and ready to be transported to the wholesale market. Visiting such a farm can be very fruitful and ca be a very awesome experience . . . and yet you get to eat them fresh.
