Late post: Durian display at Changi International Airport

I was looking through my photo archives and realised that there are a number of photos that I haven’t posted.

So here’s one. 

  
It was during Hari Raya (Muslim new year) that Changi Airport Terminal One decided to put up this rather bizarre display to wish all Muslims a good celebration. There is a saying that when the durian is in season, sarongs come off. Sounds a bit obscene? Well, perhaps it was how it was translated to me. The saying originates from how Malays in Malaysia used to trade their cloths for good durian, even the yarns they wore were up for barter. That’s how wonderful and addictive durians are.

Anyway, the durian on display was rather large and the little sofa was a nice touch. Lots of people photographed themselves on it for their social media page.
