Durian and mangosteen season was in full wing. Hooi's parents brought us to this durian stand outside Kuala Lumpur and picked out the plumpest durians for a proper tasting of the prickly and smellerific fruit. Naturally, you must top of your durians with a round of mangosteens afterward. Even a peon from medieval times could have postulated such a correlation beforehand. So we relented to such generosity and indulged.
