It is getting high time to explain this infamous fruit "Durian" to you non-Asians.
It is a yellowish, smooth, butter-like custard with an outer shell of spikes that can really hurt if touched. It is about football-sized and looks like a giant handgrenade.
The smell is a mix of 5-day old dead body in midsummer smell, camel dropping, armpit....you name it. For a Westerner in Asia, it took me years to be ready to E A T it. Now it is my favourite fruit in the whole world. However, I have to eat on the balcony immediately upon arrival home from shopping, since my wife cannot tolerate it. I once gave some of the custard to my 2-year-old. He threw up shortly thereafter.
When our local supermarket in HKG
carries it, you immediately smell it on entrance. It is so intense. I even smell it OUTSIDE the supermarket, some 50m outside, or so; no kiddin'.
For somebody to attempt to eat this on Air Asia, on the plane, would be total insane. I am 100% sure that person would be immediately stoned; there are simply to many Durian non-takers around here.
Got the picture?
