Durians in Geylang

Geylang is rather famous (or infamous) for being a hotspot for the world's oldest profession. For some reason there are quite alot of stores selling durians here as well, perhaps because it's a horny (literally) fruit itself? This place purportedly claims to sell the D24 variety and my friends were in the mood for some durian after Fatty Weng's so we stopped by.

I'm not a big fan of durian, preferring to enjoy durian derivatives instead but my friends were pretty disappointed with this offering. The meat was not thick and creamy and the flavor mild. Not the best durian indeed. Maybe we went to the wrong store but if there's a next time, I'm going to stick to the ones at Chinatown instead.

Anyways, altho the durian season is over, i wanna recommend 727 durian. They usually sell durian puffs and tarts etc but their durians are imported from Muar and are very creamy and definately good stuff!

Lady Dianabol: Fly back for some soon then =)

YD: Muar aye? Hmm.. I'll probably tell my friends about it because I'm not a big fan of the fruit myself

Evan: I think maybe as YD mentioned, the season is sorta over so I may have gotten the "runt" of the lot
