It doesn’t seem that long ago that I attended my first Durian Degustation event (number III, if memory serves me right) and here we are now having held NINE Durian Degustations to date. How time flies! Attendees this round got to sample D1, D17, Hong Xia, Green Bamboo, and of course, Mao Shan Wang.
This event was also attended by potential presidential candidate Dr. Tan Cheng Bock and his wife. That’s right, you read it here first on ieatishootipost — Dr. Tan Cheng Bock is pro-durian. I’ll leave it up to you to decide how that will affect your voting in the imminent election.
Thanks to everyone who made this event possible! If you missed out this time around, don’t fret! The season is still on, which means our favorite durian suppliers, Ah Loon and Ah Teck, will still be open for a while yet!
According to Ah Loon, we’re only at the start of the season, so the durians aren’t at their peak yet. Still, don’t let that discourage you from visiting the stall; Ah Loon and Ah Teck would sooner throw away durians whose quality they cannot vouch for than sell them to customers.
We have uploaded all the photos on our Facebook page for you to view and download.
Many thanks to Jimmy, Cactuskit, Joel, and Lovejade for helping to organize the event!
Thanks to Ah Loon and Ah Teck for donating $10 per pax to our Sandakan School Building Fund! MHCAsia has decided to match us $2 for $1 this time. So we collected a total of $3000 for the Fund! That means that three more villages will get a new school building! Thanks to everyone for your continued support for our community project!
