Part II of the Durian Fiesta thingy.
I queued up for almost an hour, so it’s not just for a box of durian puffs for my colleagues. I bought a few boxes of different things and a few slices of the durian cakes too. I gave them to my aunt who loves durians, and also to Momo’s parents who also loves durians.
What else did I get?
Durian & Crunchy Hazelnut Tartlets. They look good eh? Instead of cream, it’s durians. Real stinko durians. haha…
I got the Durian Puffs as well.
On the advert, they put down this word: “Signature”.
How can 1 word reaffirms you that you are buying the right thing?
The Durian Oreo Cake. The advert screams out: “Back by Popular Demand”.
Another few words that reaffirms the buyers. Why are we suckers for such advertising gimmicks??
Durian Mousse Cake.
Now, guess what they put on the brochure? “Legendary”
Voted Singapore’s “50 Yummiest Cakes” in 2008 by The Sunday Times.
With words like that, you will want a piece too right?
Durian Crepe. It looks like durian popiah ya?
Guess what tempted me to get this? It says “All Time Favourite”.
Want to know a secret?
I have not touched durians since Primary 6! One fine day, I just decided to ‘turn off’ durians. I have no idea why. Maybe my quota of durians for my lifetime is up. Sis also turned off durians.
When I delivered the above, which are aunt’s favourite to her, she cooked dinner for sis and me. So after dinner, it was time for aunt and cousin to eat their durians. It was also when I got an opportunity to photographed the above. 😉
Guess what? With the different type of durians in front of us, I took my first bite of durian in a very very long time! I had the Durian Oreo and Mousse Cake. The familiar taste suddenly hit me.
(Daddy, Mummy, if you are reading this, Sis and I both ate durians! haha)
If you want to try the above, (I just bing/google/yahoo it) it’s available at “Deli” at the Goodwood Park Hotel at 22 Scotts Road, Singapore 228221.
