In case you were wondering what lovely delicious morsel a durian burung is, well it isn’t. Not what you’re thinking anyway, that it might be a little durian roll or even a durian dumpling. No, durian burung is translated as “durian bird” and it is the name of what seems to be a fairly successful a bus company (judging from the number plying the highways). It would be really funny if this bus served only durians for the meals and if everyone on it was a durian lover or if it was solely for the purpose of going from one durian plantation to another….(think of the smell!)
Anyway, I was so amused by the name of the bus that I hopped out of the car and managed to take a photo of the bus before it went driving off. The bus had stopped to let off a lady, yes just one, and it left without her. I suppose she must either live nearby and a relative must be coming to get her from the rest stop or that she works there and this would be a bus to work (approx 8pm). Its funny how in Malaysia, rest stops can now also be bus stops too.
We’ve been nurturing a durian craving which we hope to satisfy perhaps this evening….
