Durians are like cheese. It's either you love it or hate it. I LOVE durians. Can eat it all day. The variety you get here is crap. The best are from Malaysia, those bittersweet ones. Yum !

I never did acquire the taste for it. However, I will eat it if offered. The nastiest [tastiest???] ones I've ever eaten came from the southern Philippines.

Yes I love it, love the smell, love the taste. Agreed the best ones are in SE Asia (and much much cheaper at the source too), I was in a durian-producing area before and the locals could point out the different tastes and textures based on the outer appearance of the durian, they come in very creamy to almost like crispy chicken consistency, and taste from very sweet to a soft kind of luscious.

I wonder how many people have died from being struck by a durian, surely it has been used as a weapon before.

Nope, don't like them. I probably would if I could get past the smell, but in my mind it tastes like it smells even before I put it in my mouth.

I thought it was a poor evil anchestor of grapefruit, not very tastey, ugly looking stuff, It'd make a good projectile weapon.

I like it, I don't love it but I'm okay with the taste.

 

I've always been wondering if they could fuel cars.  smiley

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
