It was great to be out at the market early in the morning. Everything’s fresh and in abundance.

I’ll tell you this is my favourite durian! It doesn’t smell pungent as the white flesh durians. Durian isu is creamier and the taste is totally different… you need to try to know the great taste!

It is so difficult to find these durians… not around Kuching anyway. I know Bintulu and Miri have a lot especially at Batu Niah junction (along Miri/Bintulu truck road). I counted myself lucky to find this somewhere at the foothill of Siburan.

p/s looks small but it costs more than the big durians ­čśŽ

The ‘lantern’ chilli supposedly to be the ‘hottest’. Some even┬ásay hotter than the chilli ‘padi’. I guess it all depends on your spice buds.
