The King



What can you say?




A range of this species will be gone when they flood the jungles for the Bakun Dam. It's locally called "Durian Tembaga Isa". I doubt the EIA ever mentioned this. Was told this came from the Bakun area. You'll find them right now in Sibu. Season ends December!

It could make you forget we have a world crisis, for a while!

Makan hatilah! Berulam jantunglah!

UPDATE

I was mistaken about the name of this Durian.

This evening my brother-in-law said it was Durian "Isa", not "Tembaga"!

Only one way to find out tomorrow at Sunday Market! :D

King or no king, I cannot stomach this la! I have an allergy to the smell. Effects on me: suffocation and purging. Serious! ;)

CT said...

MasyaAllah...Meleleh air lior CT! Mesti lemak & manis rasanya kalau durian tembaga...shioknya!
Jangan makan hati berulam jantunglah...makan durian sudah :))

Salak said...

Lai,

That bad? Just the "smell"? Suffocating? Maybe your olfactory nerves can trigger breathing spasm. But purging, that's something ...!

Don't worry, pictures don't have any effect on olfaction - they haven't found out that secret yet for virtual reality! ;)

But check out it's food value -->H E R E!<---

Salak said...

CT,

Kalau you beribu batu dari Sibu, kembang air lior aje!

Tapi gitu pun, "Walls" dan "Nestle" ada buat aiskrim durian! :)

Dalam pengalaman saya, Durian Tembaga kurang "keterlaluannya" - bau, dan gasnya kurang. Jadi boleh makan lebih. Kalau durian biasa, satu kampung boleh pengsan kerana baunya !!! :)

Salak said...

Lai,

Here's a durian that's safe for you. In fact mighty good for you! :D

--->Durian Belanda !!!<--- :D

Hi Salak,
Lai is me lah! I accidentally selected the email address as profile.
Oops, I realised one mistake in my comment, not purging, it's vomit lah! Allergy, serious!

Salak said...

peng,

Ha! I thought there was something odd and meant to ask! ;) Thanks!

Stay away from the thorny fruit. Stick to the "belanda" one! It has ton's of anti-oxidants! Never mind the skin! Skins are skin deep! ;)

Jong said...

Good,less man more share, Peng!
Those durians really look yummy!

Jong said...

Hey Salak, boleh hantar courier arh?
No problem, get Omar Khayyam to arrange, he's in courier biz. :D

Salak said...

Yup, Got it! You made it! haha!

Salak said...

Boleh! Tapi itu kapal naik angin, apa mau buat?! :D

Salak said...

Jong! Something's funny!

Jong said...

I just emailed Omar to direct his attention here.

Salak said...

Ok! Looks OK, Jong! That's fine, works out OK!

Probably the bandwith is coming back!

If you return to Ipoh between now and Dec end, you could hunt for it, there! Great fun! :D

Salak said...

Good! Faster than DMMDJB?!

Jong said...

I'm in Ipoh now. Supposed to fly off again anytime now but UK visitors are coming next month followed by nephew's wedding early Jan09 so tak boleh lari lah.

Yes, I've seen them in town. Just pulling your legs lah about courier service!

Salak said...

I know! And what if that kapal really "naik angin"? :D !!!

There are several species of these fruits and the fun is finding new ones! :D

Earlier, was just thinking of those in Bakun which will be gone! There might much better ones from there!!!

Salak said...

Jong, they're all coming back! Good lah!

And a lot of makan!!!? :D

peng said...

I will leave the durian talk to you guys. I lose hands down on this subject! :D

Jong said...

What, who do you mean "they're all coming back!" ?

Jong said...

hahaha Peng, ...smelly? LOL!

Salak said...

Jong, it's cuti time, isn't it?

Anyway, it could be a lot of family get-togethers! Different cooks too, come together, won't they?

When is CNY 2009? February?

Salak said...

Err ... Jong, peng!

Shout out if I deleted by accident any posts you wrote. My email box needs a lot of cleaning up!!! :(

Jong said...

CNY 26 January 2009 (mon/tue PH). Wow long weekend.

Salak said...

It sure is! Can get a lot of eating done! But have to cook lah! :D

Go back to nature, if you haven't done so for holidays!
