  15. Gosh! Are you sure you can survive the "durian" business and keep that delicate pair of hands of yours from being injured all the time? I'll still need you to be scar free for the Mummy of the Year Contest.. Remember... you will still need to do the catwalk in bikini? LOL!

    Selling durians is a prickly business....

  29. Blur Mommy,
    Durians can be exported to any part of the world but I don't know if the Immigration and Customs of USA will allow it to enter.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sassy Mommy,
    For those who dare not eat the fresh fruits....., candies, biscuits, ice-cream and cakes made with durians would be a good start.

  47. I had to use Wikipedia to find out what a durian was. What is the odor that has caused them to be banned in certain buildings.
