Travel theme: Durian, the stinky fruit you can’t take on the train in Singapore

This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Fruit.

singapore 001 - no durian in mrt

OK, Singapore is a country of don’t do this, don’t do that – but banning durians on the MRT can be seen as going beyond the imagination if you don’t live in Singapore.

Durian is this fruit that reminds me of the poor, fat, ugly girl at school. Nobody wanted to sit next to her, nobody wanted to be seen with her, nobody was selecting her to join the volley-ball team.

But someone must have been secretly in love with her, though. And indeed durian is a bit like Marmite, and some do love it. That may be why they lobbied so you get no fine if you decide to travel with your durian anyway.

Have you ever tried it?
