I ate Durian! A ‘one bite durian puff’ to be precise. A chocolate-less profiterole with a stinky durian cream inside. Tasted of onions to me but with the wrong smell a kind of rotting smell. It still tasted of onions hours later as it kept repeating. It’s to do with what smells we associate with food, so I can eat a very stinky cheese but that’s savoury, but a fruit which smells like rotting meat doesn’t see quite right. Had to be said, durian is very popular in Melaka, unfortunately. I did eat jack fruit however which I liked and has a similar, though no where near, as strong a smell as durian. The meat doesn’t look like a decomposed brain either. Matt wanted to bring some of the ‘puffs’ back in the car, wisely Huang Ying said no, knowing all too well what an unpleasant 4 hour journey back we would have had.
Back to Singapore and back to last week of rehearsals. Not scary at all!
