It is durian season in Malaysia. And oh I am in love! I knew the durian from before, as I had been a raw foodist for some time, and you can actually buy frozen durian in Asian shops in Hamburg. The shop owners used to make fun of me for my love of the stinky goodness, because that's how it is: either you love the durian or you hate it. Especially foreigners usually don't like the smell (rotten eggs) nor the taste (garlicky vanilla pudding).
WHat can I say - I love the durian!! And Malaysia is known to have the best! The locals here too laugh at how much we love them.
There is actually a durian tree on the property here too, and they usually fall from the tree in the early mornings, so a few times we got up super early and sneaked to the tree to get one, because later in the day the property owner comes and collects them. But now that they are in season and all over the roads, no need for stealing anymore!
