It look so strange and tasty, is it really tasty?? I've never seen something like that before.

My country is famous for palm-trees. So dates are everywhere almost all the seasons.
What is its name? Is it durian?
Hi Atitaya, I like durian so much. But I can't eat it now because it gives me blood pressure going up. I'm afraid to eat it. In our country, the mango is famous. It's very delicious. Do you like it??? People would like to eat mangos from small fruit (not ripe). There are so many kinds of mangos, different taste.

I lived in Malaysia for 4 years, and the durian was a very unpleasant experience for me.

You either love it or hate it.

I personally cannot stand the taste, the texture, the smell, or the unpleasant after effects.

I think it tastes like onion-flavoured yoghurt. It has the consistancy of .... I will leave that one, as I cannot think of anything really decent to say, the smell is obnoxious (hotels ban durian from their premises) and the after effects are normally about 20 minutes after, and the gaseous emissions are, or should be, banned by the Geneva Convention for being weapons of mass-destraction!

But Malaysia was one of my favourite countries ...
