Over the weekend, I had the chance to go to Balik Pulau for some durians! A friend knows the owner of a durian orchard, and so organized for us to go eat unlimited amounts of durian, all for only RM12!! Although I’ve loved durians for as long as I can remember (I used to eat durian rice when I was a kid – pour some water on the rice to make it slightly wet, add in a bit of salt and eat it with durian….yummy!!) I hardly ever went to Balik Pulau to eat their famous durians for the very reason that it was too far and my parents didn’t want to take us. But now….muahaha…durian revenge!
Balik Pulau is not really that far (especially if you’ve got great company), and don’t be thwarted by the narrow, uneven roads into the orchards…because in there you will find… durians galore!
After complaining and whining that we were all so full, someone suggested we go for Balik Pulau laksa…. and immediately everyone said yes! So much for being soooooo full!!
Coming up in the next entry… balik pulau laksa….stay tuned!
