Durian Here, There and Everywhere
As I walked down the street heading to Jonker street, all I can smell was Durian. I tried to figure it out where was that smell came from. Then I realized there were many tourists eating Durian Ice Cream around me.
Me : "Why there's so many Durian dish around?"
My Cousin : "This place is famous with it"
Me : "Really never heard it before"
My Cousin : "Welcome, then"
This kind of fruit wasn't a new for me, since I live in Jakarta. Beside rain season and dry season, we also have durian season hahahaha *kidding*, however this is true that it is a seasonal fruit. When the Durian season comes, we can easily find Durian stall along the street. I didn't think that Malacca famous for this fruit in the first place. Look around and we can easily find stall which sell Durian dish.
Suddenly I remembered my last trip to Vietnam, the guide show me Jackfruit, Dragon fruit and Durian. Then she was confused why I didn't look curious to those fruits just like other tourists. I said, "I from Indonesia maam, I can easily find those fruits in my city" then she laughed and understand my reaction before.
