Is the pahang durian season back on? I was down south recently, the JB durian seller said, " durian pahang mali"... then when I was in KL...the fella said "durian Johor mali"...???

SO many Blur sotongs liars out there...

So, where Pahang got durian now ah???

Dont take too much durian if you are a diabetic, I was told. Dont know why? My mom was a diabetic and each durian seasons, her reading would shoot up like crazy! :confused:
But then I am not a diabetic, so if you can't finish your durians, I can posibbly finish them for you. And also perhaps make a durianrama cakes for you as a token of appreciation. :D

If you are staying in an apartment or condo, be considerate to those from other countries who are staying there. I bought a packet in from Carrefore and saw many people on my floor (foreigners) turning their noses to the air and asking "What's that smell?" Heard from my daughter that in UK they had to evacuate an apartment building once because someone brought in a durian. The odour was like gas leaking from the oven (!!!???). I thought it smelled like heaven and tasted likewise. For others it may smell like (....)!

huh? This is Malaysia lah. Every1 will get used to any smell...ask the garbage men.

btw:
what about the stinky rotting greenish gooey cheese they love?

What about the wet sock stink to high heaven chow-tufu?

What about the terrible salted stinky fermented herrings?

Do they care about my sensitive nose?

Actually the Pahang season never stopped... it slowed down last month but still enough of the Musang King going into Singapore market...

Musang king so cheap now! Only about RM12-15 a kilo compared to last year about RM35-40!

Zinglicious, the trick is to eat those really good fruits like Musang King, Ang Hay and Hor Lor because just a few seeds would already be satisfying than to eat several fruits of the cheap stuff....

There is a variety which is only available in Balik Pulau here which is known as Lin Fong Jia aka Mrs Jackie Chan. Its white flesh variety, the say its like her. Its also bitter sweet, also like like her... LOL! I tried it last season, really good.

Another variety unique here is the Ang Sim (Red Heart) which is almost orangey in colour and taste a lot like the Ang Hay except its almost orangey in colour... smaller seeds than Ang Hay though.

There is a baker called Aaron from La Manilla cafe on the top floor of mid-Valley, next to the cinema, who makes really good durian cake... try it sometimes....

I thought consuming those "smelly stuff" with liquor (found in wine) is a no no. Heard cases of people dying by doing that. Not proven but anyone want to do an experiment to test the hypothesis: You can die by consuming alcohol with durians. Possibly it could be the ingredients of both the durian and alcohol reacting to produce a toxic by-product?

The age-old Asian folklore that eating durian, known as the ‘king of fruits’, along with alcohol can kill you, holds some truth, say researchers. John Maninang and Hiroshi Gemma from the University of Tsukuba, Japan, believe that the lethal side effects might be due to stinky fruit’s high sulphur content which impairs alcohol breakdown. The experiments have shown that durian extract turned off the activity of aldehyde dehydrogenase by up to 70 per cent, reports New Scientist. This enzyme plays a vital role in clearing toxic breakdown products. The study appears in The Journal of Food Chemistry.

Anything taken in extreme, would definitely has its side effect, and same goes to King of Fruits and King of Liquid! :D

I have many times taken durian with liqor and beer as well, but in moderation.

Tupai, I also heard its bad to follow up fruits after your lunch or dinner meal. The fruits later ferment your stomach content and can cause some bad side effects. So I heard, unsure whether true or not. The idea is eat fruits alone, any decent amount at one time and don't mix with other usual food. Look at the wild animals, they don't suffer from indigestion, HBP, heart disease, diabetes and other common ailments by humans that easily. Animals eat only certain foods at one go, ONLY at certain times of the day or period, moreover they don't normally over-eat. My 2 sen ah!...not necessarily facts.

Whatever it is, I'm no crazy over lewlians... relish a few pieces is quite enough for me. Sit down durian feast is a no-no for me...not me. :)

GreyShadow, if you drive to SS2 stall next to the police station there, you can get some descent durians there... they are known for their Teik Khar (literally translated as bottom of the bamboo grove) variety from Bentong at RM8-RM9 a kilo... its bitter-sweet... I used to satisfy my crave there if I do not come back to Penang for the more exotic ones...

thanks bro, will drop by there when craving for one :D

speaking about durian, anyone seen something similar like this b4 around here?
it's the wild jungle durian from Sarawak.
The torn is long narrow and sharp and the fruit and the flesh is yellow orange colored, and the taste... dunno how to describe also, it's nothing like we have tasted here before... really missed those durian back in my hometown :(

http://www.my-rainforest-adventures.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/yummy-wild-durians.JPGIts the same type too in Brunei and Sabah and Mindanao and some parts of Kalimantan. Its sweet but a bit too dry for my liking. Flavour also quite strong but there's no aroma in the air etc... and you don't burp with full gusto thereafter :D

GreyShadow
28-10-2009, 02:57 PM
yup, it's dry alright, but I like the strong flavour, and no need to worry about burping in a aircon car full of passenger :D

seems like these type are only available in east M'sia, but if anyone saw one selling here, let me know ;)

2months ago, we had an office durian party catered by Ah Seng.

Dunno what variety but RM10/kg and we had 150kg +/- another 10kg or thereabout 'on the house' ~ :D His staff on hand to pry open the durians and clear the shells are friendly too. We sapu the "bad-fruit-replacements" too, for free! I believe its the Ang Hei variety.

We will make this an annual affair :D :D

Yang Berojak durian+whisky+beer+cognac latotupai...its OK ah :D

Ah Seng's ang hay is not from Penang, its also from his father's farm in Bentong and Raub in Pahang. Should go for his Teik Khar because his is still one of the best Teik Khar I have ever tasted. Oh BTW his Hor Lor variety is also not from Penang but quite as good too.

The fruit shop in SS15, same row as Medisense Pharmacy with KFC at the corner had some good bargains the last two weeks. Bought some D24 @RM5-6 per pack of about 10 ulas. Like the soft squishy type. Tastes great. Don't like the dry type except the Thai Moon Thong I ate years ago up north. Those are moh tak teng!
