Durians

DurianWhat’s the deal with durians? Everyone is talking about durians these days.

My parents love durians. When durian was in season, they would have it every day. Not until I was a teenager did I dare to try it. I liked it. But after a while, I hated it. I didn’t want it anymore. Up to this day, I haven’t tasted any durian since.

But I can assure you that it’s not the smell. The smell doesn’t bother me a bit. Yes, it’s smelly, and it looks really ugly. In fact, this depiction of durian right here makes me think of doodie. Durian flesh smells and look like doodie!

It’s really the texture that I am not crazy about. I don’t particularly like thick and creamy stuff, except ice cream. I hate food that is creamy and sticks to the roof of your mouth. Durian is exactly like that. It’s like peanut butter. I don’t like peanut butter.

I saw some freeze-dried durian in the store the other day walking down Chinatown. I wonder how it tastes like. Will they stink? I bet they won’t stink to the roof of my mouth!
