/ Durian

DURIAN atau nama saintifiknya ‘Durio’, buah tropika yang berasal dari Asia Tenggara yang isinya manis, lembut dan aromanya yang enak.

Raja buah ini juga dikatakan sedap dan berkhasiat dimakan sebaik saja buahnya gugur sehingga empat hari kerana itu menandakan buahnya sudah masak dan tidak perlu dijolok.

Jika disentuh soal bau, buah durian memiliki bau yang terlalu kuat sehingga mereka yang tidak menggemari menyamakan buah ini dengan bau keju basi.

Berbeza pula dengan penggemar buah durian yang pasti menyukai isi durian kerana durian memiliki rasa yang cukup unik.

Bila bercerita soal durian, penggemar durian pasti akan membela buah kesayangannya dan berasa kecewa, marah tatkala ada mengutuk atau merendahkan buat raja ini.

Tular di laman Twitter sedutan episod rancangan ‘Law Of The Jungle’ memaparkan pengembaraan 11 artis Korea Selatan memasuki hutan di Myeik, Myanmar,

Dalam episod itu, selebriti berpeluang melihat lebih dekat pokok durian dan buah tersebut.

Mungkin tidak pernah bertemu buah durian, pelbagai aksi lucu dipaparkan mereka.

Tiga rakaman video yang tular itu memaparkan cara mereka mengupas selain menghidu bau sebenar buah durian.

Selebriti Kim Byung Man dilihat memotong durian seperti buah cempedak hingga membuatkan netizen geleng kepala.

Kata adbtqw17, “Dia potong macam potong cempedak”

Bukan itu sahaja, beberapa selebriti melakukan aksi-aksi mencuit hati dengan memanjat pokok durian untuk menghidu bau aroma buah durian.

Nuruliffahh berkata, “Mereka makan kulit, bukan isi, frust aku… tidak pernah dibuat orang panjat pokok durian,” ciapnya.

Adegan-adegan ini telah dikongsikan beberapa pengguna Twitter yang juga merupakan peminat rancangan tersebut.

Kata crafynn, selebriti itu turut menyamakan rasa buah durian seperti nanas.

Bagaimanapun ada segelintir netizen memihak kepada selebriti Korea Selatan itu.

“Nama pun pelancong, kalau kita cuba buah dari negara mana-mana pun sama juga reaksi seperti mereka,” kata liyanajmldn.

Dalam pada itu rancangan konsep realiti dokumentari dibarisi artis terkenal antaranya, Kim Byung Man, Noh Woo Jin, Hong Soo Ah, Park Jung Chul, dan Song Yu Qi.


A Malaysian singer came under fire for embarking on a challenge that caused unnecessary danger to her own health. Malay Mail wrote that local singer, Ara Johari, took on a challenge of eating spicy noodles with durian and it didn’t end well for her.

In a video that went viral, Ara was seen chowing down a bowl of spicy noodles and durian. After just a few bites, the singer started feeling unwell, and towards the end of the clip, an ambulance was seen arriving.

Apparently, the 22-year-old was quickly taken to the hospital after she started gagging and vomiting into a plastic bag. Obviously, this incident didn’t sit well with the netizens as they claimed she was promoting “potentially dangerous behaviour”.

Even famous actress Nabila Huda left a comment saying that the attempt was “stupid”. She wrote,

“Who are the morons who started the challenge of eating spicy noodles with durian? Stop doing stupid things like this. Durian is already a heaty food, suppose you died while eating this, then what?”

Netizens seemed to share the same sentiment as Nabila, as they disapproved of the challenge saying that it was stupid and dangerous.

Prior to this, in 2017, a Youtuber calledNikocado Avocado ate four packs of spicy Korean noodles and some durians. However, the Youtuber seemed to be unharmed because he didn’t suffer repercussions like Ara.

A further report on the case revealed that Ara actually has gastric, and the team who was filming the challenge didn’t know about her condition. They have formally apologised for pursuing this challenge and advised people not to follow suit. You heard them, guys! Don’t recreate this challenge for your own good. 

On that note, we hope Ara will quickly recover and learn from her mistake that almost cost her life. Hopefully, she doesn’t take up other ill-advised challenges.


‘This the season to be smelly – and jolly, at least for the durian lovers cause there are so many durian-themed products in the market right now!

We have durian chocolate drink and durian milk tea by Tealive, there’s a Musang King durian burger in Penang, McDonald’s durian Mcflurry is back, and more!

Now, behold Cadbury’s durian-flavored chocolate milk bar which is made especially for the Malaysian market (aww, how sweet!). “Cadbury Dairy Milk celebrates the flavor of Malaysia, with it’s new limited edition Durian flavor,” reads the description.

The durian-flavoured chocolate product is available for purchase on Shopee for RM17 for 2 pieces. Malaysians can also purchase the chocolate bar at local super market or convenience stores.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Durian is the 2nd localized flavor after Cadbury Dairy Milk Kopi C which pays homage to Malaysians’ love for traditional coffee shops, known as the kopitiam.


Japanese Girl Becomes Addicted to Durian

July 22, 2019 | Viral | No Comments

Although some Foreigners would liken the stench of the fruit to hot poop garbage, gym socks or mushy onions, most who have tasted it would liken it to creme brulee but with character.

After giving the frightening fruit a chance while on her trip to Malaysia, one Japanese girl made a turn for worst — becoming a full-on addict in a place where Durian is sold at a premium, Hong Kong.

Spreading her message of Durian love, iChang took to YouTube to show the world just how obsessed she was about the fruit in a 9-minute video.

It began after tasting the fruit for the first time in Malaysia. Now she scours the streets of Hong Kong looking for a tasty morsel.

However, despite the fruit being available in all forms, shapes, and sizes, the prices of the goods sold was a tad bit expensive.

To fuel her search, iChang frequented a convenience store to purchase Durian-flavoured snacks, but they did not come close to the actual fruit.

After being thoroughly disappointed at her previous purchases, she made her way to a fruit market in Yau Ma Tei, only to find durian being sold from HK$65 to HK$140 per kilo (RM34-80)!

She went on to purchase the fruit anyway, despite the premium price tag.

When she took it home and ate it, she complained the taste could never beat eating durian in Malaysia, especially the ones in Penang, which were cheap and good.

At the end of her video, she made comments of her revelation that would resonate with any durian addict living outside of Malaysia.

“It’s difficult to eat. You can’t have another once you’ve had the one in Malaysia. I like the sweetness and richness of Musang King, but I cannot go back anymore after tasting the real durian in Malaysia.”


We can feel our arteries getting clogged just by looking at this.A restaurant in Penang recently made many a jaw drop after a video by food blog Penang Foodie featuring its Musang King Burger went viral on social media.

Dubbed the “First in Malaysia”, the heart-stopping combo of durian and cheese is the brainchild of Ric’s Burger, a burger joint in Bayan Lepas, Penang and costs RM25.90 per pop.

Not only is the burger drenched with a super thick melted cheese and durian sauce, the patty itself is made with Musang King durian stuffed with mozzarella cheese and butter

The patty is then coated with egg and breadcrumbs before being deep-fried and topped with the aforementioned rich sauce. Methinks that’s a nose bleed waiting to happen. 

While we’re at it, let’s take a look at these bizarre instances a perfectly good piece of durian was paired with savoury foods:

2. Durian in Maggi Kari

3. Durian bak kut teh

4. Milo Kaw Cheese Durian drink

You have Cheese Banjir, a restaurant at Desa Pandan, Kuala Lumpur to thank for this nosebleed-inducing concoction.

5. Nasi lemak with durian sambal

The above dish can be found at Durian Kingdom in Central Market, Kuala Lumpur. 

6. Nasi lemak with fried durian

7. Fries with musang king cheese sauce

You can find this dish at Durianity, a restaurant serving durian-flavoured everything in Puchong. 

8. Fried rice with durian

9. Durian-infused vodka

It’s actually part of a cocktail called The King (also contains Baileys Irish Cream, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, orgeat almond syrup, vanilla ice cream, and cinnamon powder) at The Locker & Loft at Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya. 

10. Durian chicken hot pot

The killer dish – a signature offering at Da Long Feng Ji Bao in Guangzhou, China – went viral in 2016 when vlogger The Food Ranger featured it in video. 


Tealive beckons all bubble tea lovers to not just smell the joy but also taste the joy with their new Durian series that celebrates the king of fruits! If you’re a fan of durian, don’t miss out on the franchise’s new drinks.

The 3 durian drinks are:

  1. Duriang Coco (RM10.90)
  2. Duriang Milk Tea (RM10.90)
  3. Duriang Smoothie (RM10.90)

Do note all the aforementioned durian beverage are available in regular (R) size only and will be subjected to 6% SST. Tealive claims that Duriang Ria uses real D24 in their drinks. If you’re curious, go try them out today!

It’s sold only at selected outlets (the majority of popular ones). Just to be safe, you can double check it here. Let us know if it’s an improvement from the previous Tealive durian smoothie.


In a tweet that went viral with over 17k retweets, a vendor selling just the durian flesh by the kilo without the shell was praised for his ethical business practices.

“For the first time in history, only the durian flesh is weighed and sold,” the Twitter user wrote in his tweet.

The durian stall originally went viral on Facebook with over six thousand people sharing a post about it.

“It’s RM 25 per kg for just the flesh, the shell does not count,” Nur Hajar wrote in her Facebook post.

“If the durian flesh is not good, he will not sell it,” she added.

The stall is located on the Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) highway heading to Changlun, Kedah.

Harian Metro revealed that the seller’s name is Mohd Izzuwan Ismail, age 30, and he says that so far, no customers have complained about the durians or his services. Talk about good customer service!
