Hello girls!This morning I received a call from my orchard caretaker informing that the durians has started to fall. Excited? Well, when I was younger we used to make a huge durian feast when there's a good season.We even coined a name for it, we called it ' the durian Q' . The reason for such a name was that we also have a BBQ to feast with the durians. There were about 500 guests. It was once featured in the NST titled as 'The gargantuan durian feast' or something like that. For some years back, we could not do so because we have not much energy left for such functions and many of our friends have moved on, and our lifestyle has also changed. The once upon a time, young upcoming and vibrant couple are no more!
However I have promised our students that we will be taking them to the 'dusun' when durians season is on. So when I got the call this morning my head started to plan and automatically I could picture the durian picnic at the dusun with the BBQ (chickens of course!) not forgetting the pulut santan to eat with the durian. The children will be playing in the stream, but the bigger boys may go to the waterfall nearby. May be I should open the invitation to you guys as well. Not sure how to go about to manage crowds and this dusun is near the jungle with no resort facilities at the moment. Any suggestions?
