When we FINALLY reached the plantation...
Baskets and Baskets of Durians
Time to Dig In
There were soooooooooo good!!!
Thick, creamy, yummy goodness! Sweet, but with undertones of bitterness. Purrrrrrfecct !
Me and my Papa :-)
Just look at what we polished. Hehe
After gorging on those beauties, we took some photos
Photo from my sis - I laughed when I saw it.
My brother and I pretending to be durian experts! Lol.
After stuffing ourselves, we walked to his fish ponds nearby.
Elyssa throwing fish food into the pond.
More fish food throwing by the kids
Walking back from the fish pond
We were really lucky. Despite it being a super hot day, the sun hid itself when we were are the fish pond area :-)
Tapao!And even after eating so much durians there, my uncles packed a LOT for us to bring back. Appox 4 durians into 1 huge container. We brought home 4 of these huge containers. Yumz!
Such a lovely trip out! But oh.... so terrible on the waistline. I was super careful with my food intake for the next few days. And then on Weds, my mum took out the frozen durians from the tapao stash. Goshhh, eating them cold was good too! (tho we all concluded nothing beats fresh durian right from the shell, in the plantation itself). I gorged down 7 bijis. There goes my diet again.
Need to go the gym after work. But was it all worth it????? Definitely!
