Tuesday/ the King of Fruits

One of these days I’m going to buy one of these durian (‘king of fruits’) from the fruit market close to where we go for lunch every day.   The last time I had some was about 20 years ago on a trip to Malaysia (it is native to Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia).  The fruit has high levels of protein, fat and carbohydrates but the trouble is the aroma of the smooth buttery segments inside : overpowering and offensive to so many people that it is banned in public places in Thailand and on public transit in Singapore.   

From Wikipedia : sign on Singapore transit saying 'No durians'.
