"Smells like Hell but Taste like Heaven"

That's the usual statement you can hear or read when describing this fruit. But for me, Durian smells and taste like heaven. *big grin*

One time when we went to the supermarket, I told my ate that I really love the smell of durian, she said "taga-Davao ka nga! (you're really from Davao)". Well, I grew up here in Batangas. My parents are both Batangueños, it just so happen that I was born in Davao (and I am proud of it as well!). The last time I went to Davao was in 2001, after my college graduation. There I've got the chance to taste durian and I love it!


Durian: Brings out the Davaoeña in me.

When Tatay attended the wedding of my cousin from Davao, he brought home durian seedlings. After about 5 years of waiting, we have our own durian fruit!
