榴槤在東南亞，素有“水果之王”之稱，對愛吃榴槤的群眾來說，它的風采，它的魅力，實在是無法擋，且榴槤的品種繁多， 有貓山王、黑刺、紅蝦、金鳳、D13等等。但說到受歡迎的程度， 我覺得還是以貓山王為首。

Durian season was here again, and thanks to a
surprise bumper crop in Malaysia, prices for the
prized "Mao Shan Wang" or Musang King grade had
dropped. Quality durians were cheaper now than in
previous years. So we decided to organise a durian
party for our Clan members on Sunday, July 3rd,
Two huge baskets loaded with "Mao Shang Wang" durians were delivered to our doorsteps in the morning. Members started to arrive at the Association around evening time. There was a huge turnout. Our sub-committee members started to open the durians. The rich durian aroma attracted many passers-by and they stopped by to ask questions. Some inquisitive tourists even get to taste the fruits. The Germans called it "die stinkende Frucht" or the stinky fruit! But we loved its pungent aroma. We gave one whole durian to an Australian who said his wife will love to try it.
