3) Any other food you would like to see the Isa's try? (We'll try to find it if we can.)

Well done! I hope u throughly enjoyed the King of the Fruits! Now, would u be able to find in Chinese medicine halls those human foetuses soaked in rice wine?

No no no..please don't eat that even if u're able to find them. Saw the hosts of a local 'fear factor' show eating them in China..grossed me out totally.

Btw, i saw your 'Durian Experiment'. Over here, we dissect it different. We dont chop off the "head" but rather we use something sharp, say an ice-pick to poke the "arse" of the durian..prise open a hole big enough for the fingers, and forcefully tear it apart.

I hate the aftertaste that lingers forever in your mouth....

Thanks for the suggestion Jared - but I think we'll pass on the fetuses... Can we just drink rice wine and pretend?

The King of the Fruits that we had kept trying to crawl off the table. Not knowing what may be inside causing such behavior, we decided to lobotomize it first. (Safety measure really.) It was also very, very ripe so the edible portions of it stuck to the skin as we opened it. It also had started to ferment - which is probably what caused the crawling action - all that CO2 being produced... (No, not really.) It just laid there and let us dissect away. Didn't make a peep of a sound, but the distinct odor it produced did lead us to believe it "pooed" itself.

I guess Bear in Russia and Moose here in Canada are the "exotic" things I have eaten... not including the drive by buggings.

isadora, you got one letter wrong it should read

"yucky Durian"

j/k. Bought one, but my hotel's front desk staff said I couldn't even have it in the hotel because the smell was too offensive

They had the right to deny your durian entry! They are pretty odiferous, especially when opened!

Godd things happened after we opened and ate some of ours. Upon hearing about it, Hien and Pardus named it the "Lucky Durian". (Us? Superstitious? Never! But...)
