I had durians last night. Pretty tasty those udang merah type were.
I saw the price tag per packet RM43 but 50% discount after 7 pm. Converted to Singapore dollars this would be about S$8.
Considering that in Singapore a packet could cost S$10 suddenly durians in Malaysia weren’t that cheap any more even with the 50% discount. That the majority of durians in Singapore are imported from Malaysia makes it even more ironical.
Some might say the udang merah type would be very expensive in Singapore. Maybe but still RM43 for about 6-8 seeds doesn’t seem that cheap to me. So lucky those in the know are aware of this lobang to get durians at 50% discount.
Anyway, I am going to stop complaining about this since more durians are coming tonight. Just be thankful and eat.
