Durian in Sibu

Our next stop was in Sibu where we had Inservice and then out to dinner.  It is durian season.  President Chua and President Lai showed us how to really enjoy the fruit.  You take the whole section of the fruit and put it in your mouth to get the full effect of the flavor.  Then you take the pit/seed out of your mouth.  It is best to eat the fruit outdoors. The smell is very strong and does not leave for days.  We were also advised not to eat durian with carbonated drinks.  You can become explosive.  I found the flavor ok, but probably will not eat it very much.  It gives you gas and I was tasting the fruit throughout the day through burbs.  The flavor of the fruit did not improve the second time around.
