Durian. Golden, fleshy fruits in a thorny skin. Just the way nature made it, and just the way we love it. A prick of pain (well, sometimes) to get the best succulent bite. The thing is, though, durian prices here are a killer. You wanna eat Mao Shan Wang means you have to fast for the past month to save money so that you can take your girlfriend, her family and her siblings’ in-laws out to makan. Why not take an alternate durian route? Drop by Johor now and check these places out for a change. Money also cheaper you know.
