The King of the Fruit - Durians

I had a wonderful weekend with William and BengBeng at William's fruit orchard a.k.a William's ancestral village. It is located at rural Sg. Teku where you need to drive 20minutes from Sibu town.



This is the main purpose that we went there. Durian season is here again. You either love them or hate them. I've been seeing those big, thorny, smelly fruits every time and everywhere in my hometown.



Durians have a strong smell and a unique taste. My friend told me that the durian tastes like heaven and the smells like hell. But too bad, I'm not a durian lover!




This is the guy who has a great skill to open the durians without using any gloves



The durian trees are relatively large, growing to 25-50 metres in height depending on the species.



You can found Durians everywhere and every corner around the orchard.



William and Bengbeng were hunting for Durians.
