Durian, I still cannot accept you

My hub & I love eating durian. The last time I had durian was during my 3rd trimester when having Amos. People are telling me that I could try eating some durian ( good source of protein), the baby will be chubby looking. Anyway, durian is one of my fav fruit & it is a good excuse to eat it during those times.... YuMmy YuMmy.....

All along, Zac is quite fussy about his choice of food. Besides not wanting to drink milk (read post here), durian is also one of his enemy. My hub bought 3 durian for S$20 the other day, Zac politely ask to try some. I was surprised by his request. I thought maybe his taste bud had changed over the years. But after a few bites, I think he still cannot accept the fruit. Look at his expression..... LOL :)



41 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

LOl. 1st to comment. Durian, you either like it or dislike it.

I love it too but has cut down and now hardly eat now.

IN Singapore you can get good quality durians as most good durians head down south as Singaporean pay better prices for it. :)

Uncle Sam : I just posted this not too long, thanks for the first to comment here. So in Singapore we are actually paying more bcos of the transportation cost....haiz :~(

I'm ok with durian, if it's there I'll eat it, if not, it's ok too! Hubbs loves durian more than me but the funny thing is my MIL thinks I'm the durian lover when it's actually hubbs! ;)

JaniceNW said...

I'll stick to my yummy cheeries, thank you. Just stopping by to give my buddy a big hug. BIG HUGS.

I had never hurt of this durian but I don't think American would take to it very well.

:D

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : Your MIL so funny, she duno its her son who likes to eat durain.... LOL. I'm just like you, if its there, I will eat, hardly purposely go around to eat them :D

J@n!ce said...

Janice sis : Thanks for hopping over to give that BIG HUG. So much LOVE in here. *hug* :) :)
You are right, I don't think americans can take it well. They will find it very 'smelly'. I think cherries are so much healthier, so good choice for you :)

ET said...

Doctor: Have you been keeping up with your folic acid?

J@n!ce: I had plenty of durians!!!

But your son's expression is darn cute. Hahahaha...

netster said...

hipmommy said...

I never eaten Durian before.... I wonder how it tastes like. I might try it one day.

J@n!ce said...

Ed : LOL !! I only took durain on 2 occasions during my whole pregnancy only lah. I din actually eat a lot cos it is very heaty.
His expression really makes me laugh too. He has to close his eyes to swallow that 3rd bite... LOL

J@n!ce said...

Netster : There is a stall here at our house there seem to have durains throught the year leh. I wonder where they keep the stock. I thought durain got season de? :)

J@n!ce said...

Hipmommy : For those who likes it, its heavenly. For those who cant accept the fruit. Their expression will be the same like my elder son, Zac :)

Sam Chan said...

Durian is also fruit - so it is not my favorite! So I can save some money during the Durian Fest :-)

Well, even though many Asian people love to eat, nobody like the after smell in the car or garbage dump - am I right? It is so difficult to get rid of the smell.

HiPnCooLMoMMa said...

i love durian, but seldom eat. the best durian here can be found down south, and when it gets to our area, gosh too pricey!

i guess every kid hate the smell of durian...my kids hate it a lot and they get really mad when they smell one

Bloggrrl said...

Oh, hilarious pictures! At least he is trying it, though. I've never tried it. Now I'm curious.

Nick Phillips, MY said...

My wife loves durians. I'm pretty okay with it, just lilike what Marzie said, if it's there, I'll eat it, if not, no probs with me. I'm sure if my wife checks your blog, she's gonna want some durians ... LOL!

The Bimbo said...

Durian!!! Yummy but fattening... :P

J@n!ce said...

Sam Chan : You are rite, the smell from the durian will be a problem if left in the car or in the fridge. Not forgetting the smell when you burp.... LOL :)

Girlie :So durian is also costly at your plc. I think kids are alike when come to durian. However, I've got a nephew who loves durian :)

J@n!ce said...

Blogrrl : Nice to see your here. You may want to try one if you gets to visit places that has this tropical fruit :)

Nick : You so 'sayang' your wife, must be always thinking of where to get nice durian for her.... :)

Bobo : Yes, I'm full of guilt after eating & have to down those green tea to 'wash away' LOL :)

Adrian said...

Janice, coincidently my sister brought some durian over to our place on Sunday! They were really yummy! We tried to give some to our little one but after smelling it she just wouldn't even try it LOL have to wait a little more for her to taste it I suppose! :)

The Bimbo said...

J@n!ce said...

Franco said...

Hi Janice,

Thanks for stopping by at my blog, www.francoyong.com. Yes..I love durians. In fact, I bought some and eat part of them yesterday. The rest is stinking my fridge!! I guessed you must hail from Singapore. Next time you're going to be in KL, let me know and I'll introduce to the best durians in KL from a very honest seller.

Bye

Franco

J@n!ce said...

Franco : I prefer warm durian. Yes, durian will stink the fridge. The smell will be there for weeks :(
Looks like you are really a regular durian eater to have known good seller.... LOL.

Sure no problem, will give you a ping if heading there :)

The New Parent said...

Hi J---durian is quite the funky fruit by smell. I haven't tasted it yet, but (smile) I have smelled it, which is why I haven't tasted it yet (laugh)!

J@n!ce said...

TNP : LOL.... I think Americans cant really take the fruit. But at least it is a *smile* from you.... :) :)

Adrian said...

Janice! Guess what? We had more durian last night and gave the little one some again? She loved it and asked for more LOL I have some pictures (I'll post them soon) of her eating it and you can see from it that she really enjoyed it! I'm so happy! :) LOL

J@n!ce said...

Adrian : LOL !! Your princess could take the fruit now.... that's really something happy to know. I will hop over to take a look at the photo :)

Judy said...

Hahaha, what a cute expression! I think as he grows up, he will learn to like it. My niece took about 16 years I think. :)

My kids can't even stand the smell of it.

J@n!ce said...

Judy : I duno how long will it take for my 2 boys to accept the durian that mummy & daddy love :)

LadyBanana said...

This is only the 2nd time I have heard of durian, the first time when I came across a pic of it on Flickr and then had no idea what it was. I don't think we get it here in England, but I'm sure if it was offered to me I would try, maybe, just a tiny bit. I heard it smells bad so that may put me off before I even started!

Lovely Blog by the way :)

J@n!ce said...

Diana : Its actually a very nice fruit but many eurasian cant take the fruit too well. Yes, if you are given a chance, you should actually try it :)
