Eat Durian For Charity

Jomdurian - VI : 18 August 2013 at Summit Subang Jaya
Main Beneficiary - "Smiles Across Malaysia!"
Malaysians go crazy over durians. But they are also very considerate when it come to helping the needy. So, when a very charitable event is held to raise funds for a noble cause with free durians as part of the deal then you surely have a winner.

Yes, Jomdurian VI, the sixth in the series, was a great success. Thousands of durian lovers came to The Summit USJ to participate in this durian buffet and contribute to help the Children's Wish Society of Malaysia bring a smile back to terminally ill children by granting them a wish.

Correct way to drink after eating durian: Pour some water onto a durian husk

It's refreshing! Helps cool the durian's "heatiness' and get rid of the smell too.
