First of all, I would like to apologize for posting about durians so suddenly. I was so so bored that i can't think of anything else to do, al pulak sleeping till this hour. I betul-betul tak ada comment.
K K.. Cut all the nonsense and let me go straight to the point.
Recently i went to Jusco's supermarket at Balakong and i saw a list of types of durian which really caught my attention. I never knew that durians have names, what i mean is weird names... Since durian is my favorite fruit, it is better to know some of them.

As you all know, durians are called as king of the fruits in malaysia, indonesia, brunei and some other places in south east asia. There are some custom and beliefs regarding about durian as well. Durians has warming properties that liable to cause excessive sweating. The traditional chinese method to counteract this is to pour water into the empty shell of the fruit after the pulp has been consumed and drink it. An alternative method is to eat durian together with mangosteen, which considered to have cooling properties (ice is not counted in this point).

There are some precautions that we need to consider as well about durians.
First: Pregant women and people with High Blood Pressure(especially al) are traditionally advised not to consume durians.
Second: Don't eat durians together with coffee.
Third: Don't eat durians together with alcoholic drinks.

In some countries, for example Thailand, have Durian Festival. They worship those durians something like the picture shown below:

So that's all guys regarding about durians. To those who knows about durian, hopefully you will be able to gain extra information from here. As to those who dunno about durian, get to know them.. don't makan buta-buta!!!!
