Love it or hate it; it is no secret that Durian is an acquired taste.
Although some Foreigners would liken the stench of the fruit to hot poop garbage, gym socks or mushy onions, most who have tasted it would liken it to creme brulee but with character.
After giving the frightening fruit a chance while on her trip to Malaysia, one Japanese girl made a turn for worst — becoming a full-on addict in a place where Durian is sold at a premium, Hong Kong.
Spreading her message of Durian love, iChang took to YouTube to show the world just how obsessed she was about the fruit in a 9-minute video.
It began after tasting the fruit for the first time in Malaysia. Now she scours the streets of Hong Kong looking for a tasty morsel.
However, despite the fruit being available in all forms, shapes, and sizes, the prices of the goods sold was a tad bit expensive.
To fuel her search, iChang frequented a convenience store to purchase Durian-flavoured snacks, but they did not come close to the actual fruit.
After being thoroughly disappointed at her previous purchases, she made her way to a fruit market in Yau Ma Tei, only to find durian being sold from HK$65 to HK$140 per kilo (RM34-80)!
She went on to purchase the fruit anyway, despite the premium price tag.
When she took it home and ate it, she complained the taste could never beat eating durian in Malaysia, especially the ones in Penang, which were cheap and good.
At the end of her video, she made comments of her revelation that would resonate with any durian addict living outside of Malaysia.
“It’s difficult to eat. You can’t have another once you’ve had the one in Malaysia. I like the sweetness and richness of Musang King, but I cannot go back anymore after tasting the real durian in Malaysia.”
After seeing the struggles of iChang in search of durian, fans of the fruit living in Malaysia should be more appreciative of what we have and be thankful that it does not come with a premium price tag.
