When we arrived the place was already packed with people and we even had to park our car so far. There was an ongoing show and the tents were filled with tables, chairs and durian everywhere! It was a bit evident that we came late because we could already see almost everyone sitting comfortably with their tables filled with the empty Durian shells. After not having a clue where to go, we were led to the section with long tables and durians. Fortunately, there are still some Durians left for us to enjoy. It was nice that the organizers even provided plastic gloves, styrofoam packets and rubber bands for us to nicely get the durian fruits and pack them.
That place was a Durian Paradise for all the Durian lovers.. the durian smell was so strong, almost unlimited ‘eat all you can’ and ‘pack all you can Durian’ extravaganza. And I just love it! I ate so much of Durian that at the end of the day I was so full, dizzy and sleepy. LOL!
I just hope that next year, we will be early for the GReat Durian Festival. And oh, by the way, we didn’t have to pay anything to get inside the venue nor pay for the Durian we packed. Durian Paradise it is!
