Durian on 'Pikulan'

I think the durian is now in season. I saw plenty of it on sale at the supermarket and on the street. This mobile vendor is even offering it on a 'pikulan' (bamboo carrying pole and baskets) on a street near my office.

I bought durian medium size at price of Rm 10.00 for 3 this morning.I wanted to prepare bubur durian with gula melaka.
Durian is cheap now..have you try buah dabai ?
The good buah dabai or gradeAAA would cost Rm28.00 per kg.

Great photo of that guy with the funny fruit! I'd love to try the Durian - never seen it before now!

I've heard so much about durian, maybe someday I'll get to try it! A very nice portrait of the street vendor (and the durian.)

(I had to look up "buah dabai". What does it taste like?)

I used to eat durian. But now I am not dare enough to eat durian. I am 34 years old...

Wow, the fruit is huge.
Love this photo.

When I worked with livestock in Arkansas, I learned that this way of carrying can be very good.

Never tasted this kind of fruits. They're not sold here. They look like huge litchis.
Once again, great picture in B&W.
What surprises me, is the anachronism between all your pictures. I mean, this picture could have been taken decades ago (maybe B&W explains this feeling), and you show usa so modern city, just as ours. Very varied and interesting.
