Don’t ask why is my durian red.

If you notice anything new with my blog, it is the banner.

If you want to know why is the durian red, it is because I like my things being different. I also like red colour. Very the ‘ong’. Also gives me the fire element.

If you want to know what liulian is, it is Hokkien for durian, a thorny fruit with very sharp thorns. Usually, the thorns may hurt if you get poked. And the wounds take a while to heal.

But inside, it is one of the rarest fruit on earth. If you can penetrate the thorns, you will be rewarded with the golden treasure inside.

But…..not many people appreciate durians. Only the very special, connoisseurs do.

You either love durians or stay away. Amen.

Anything else? Don’t ask. If you notice it, you know it. If you don’t, you don’t.

This banner is designed by MunKit. Go see his very cute drawing today. If you are a girl age between 18-21 yrs old, hates animal and do not mind eating dog and the cow’s nenenepokpok, MunKit may be interested to know you. *muahahaha*

Another lor-sor-fickle (philosophical) thoughts for the day:
Be like the lallang, bend and sway to the wind. Pestillence, drought, Penang conserve water campaign, Lallang still can sing ‘I am still standing after all these years’ (like that Elton Botak Gay John?)

Do not be like the oak. Sturdy and strong but once tumbled in a storm, it will become someone’s coffin.

  1. Hi Lilian
    I tried durian last yr, import from Thailand.
    I it was okz,Peter Tan said it wouldn’t be as nice as Malaysian ones that are fresh.

  2. why is your durian red. Sorry, i am here to ask the same question again la, and again la. Last question, why is your durian red?

  3. Mr Kiasu – Want to risk getting poke? I like red, so it is red

    Sweetspirit – Yes, Peter is right. Our Malaysians fruit has a stronger and much better taste and smell.
