friends gathered at my place for a 9pax claypot rice + crabby lunch recently on 7.6.2016. ^^

after lunch, we decided to organise a durian party on 20.6.2016.

a friend went to check on ah seng but ghim moh market was closed for cleaning on 20 & 21.6.2016.

to hedge, we decided to book 6kg 猫山王MSW & collect on 19.6.2016. i collected 6.4kg.

the friend went to sin kian choon in tiong bahru on 20.6.2016 morning & queued to get the durians. she bought 6.8kg 猫山王MSW & 3.5kg 竹脚. so we had 16.7kg in all for 12pax.

singaporeans lagi rich!

猫山王MSW is sooooo expensive! & ah seng is booked out everyday for both 1.30pm & 5.30pm deliveries.

when i was collecting at seng i asked for 1 more MSW  than what i ordered but they didn’t have any to spare la..& collection is a queue, since after opening & weighing durians, another guy need to vacuum pack the durians.

ah seng is so successful they invested in the vacuum machine for several years now. it is good as basically no smell in the car or fridge (even left overnight in our case). & the overnight durians were just as good.

i tried buying from the clementi mall shop.

last year my experience was good, but this year it was hit & go, mostly ok but not great. if you are paying S$15/kg & almost S$30 for 1 durian, mostly ok not quite good enough leh…

so far experience with ah seng consistently good, some durians are better than others, some times are better than others but the bottomline is, always good.

today the 竹脚 my friend got at S$12/kg was very good, very nice bitter taste, and actually it was very creamy too, but then when you take MSW, MSW still creamier. 🙂

another friend brought a box of mangosteen. good mangosteens from thailand. 🙂

coconuts

the host prepared some coconuts, sweet young coconuts though 1 friend had one that was a bit old. 🙂

how to describe MSW. basically very shiok la! no wonder people willing to fork out so much.

after durian party 9 of us decided to go hup choon at binjai park nearby for dinner.
