Durian dah berbunga!


Some of you would remember the Perak-born comedian, Os singing,

"Oh kome, deghoyan dah berbunga...".

Well, durian dah berbunga indeed at Kampong Kepayang Fair Park, my kampong.

For those of you who haven't seen the flower of a durian tree take a good look at the pic above taken this morning in front of my mum's house. Beautiful, aren't they?

There are three durian trees at Mak's house. Looking at their flower blooms, there's a good chance that this Hari Raya we'll be having durian for breakfast, pulut durian for lunch, and bubur durian for dinner.

how do durian flowers smell like?

Dear Anonymous

I find it difficult to describe the smell of durian flowers. But I like it and always find find them to be fresh-smelling.

Others have described the smell as follows: "heavy, sour and buttery odour" because they have copious nectar, typical of flowers which are pollinated by bats.

Salam Hj Azizi,
