About to try durian for the first time!
Not enjoying durian in a not so subtle way.
Taking a closer look at the fruit.
Today I tried durian for the very first time! It’s impressive that I have lived in this country for over 2 years and have gotten away with not yet trying durian; I have definitely been too scared to try. However, tonight, I was forced to try it and…
First… the smell hit me! The odd thing is, I had smelled it before in the grocery store but this time it was sitting right in front of my face and the smell seemed to have changed; I did not like this change. It smelled like something kind of rotten…
Oh man, then I had to put it in my mouth and swallow it!!! Aduh dong!!! It was so weird and squishy. To be fair, the fruit is beautiful: soft and delicate. The flavor signature is an odd one; you either like it or you don’t. I definitely DON’T as you can clearly see in the middle picture!
However, I am so grateful to have been able to try yet another amazing thing in this lifetime. I’m definitely looking forward to the next challenge!
About 1 year ago, I started writing and illustrating my own children’s books. I discovered that I could utilize my natural abilities in the classroom to enhance the learning experience of my students. Through these books, I hope to nurture the positive growth of self-worth in children ages 6 – 9.
…All I need now is a publisher… LOL 😉
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

I tried a guava fruit today for the first time. Since I have been here, I have only been drinking fresh guava juice when available.
The fruits smell is aromatic and the taste is kind of like an apple that is not very sweet.
