  1. Durian the king of fruits. Not all like it’s strong fragrance. It’s superb perfumed. Eat today you will smell durian for 4 days 😁 there is a technique to eat this to avoid the fragrant smell after eating. A thin layer of pea nut butter as well salt and petter very little to add up on inner layer and the next 6 hrs the fragrance be less.

    I was not liking this fragrance in beginning my Indonesian friend share me a tip how to eat Durian and I never miss chance to eat this when ever I find it in supermarkets of philippines Thailand Indonesia or Singapore. When ever I visit for work I try look at durian.
