From time to time in the far east one encounters the Durian.
It is always an unforgettable experience.
As a fruit it is an acquired taste ; as a people repellent it is more effective than asking for money.
The pungent smell has led to it being banned from aircraft.

The size of a melon, they have a distinctive spiky shape ...

....which has been immortalized in Singapore by the design of the concert hall.

One place it does not find favour is on the MTR (Tube)
