Is Durian’s Season now, some tips you may like to follow while choosing a king of fruit!

First, pick up a durian by using a towel cloth or a glove and give a gentle shake. If the sound is dull and subtle, this is just right. If it is knocking sound, the fruit is not ripe enough. It there is no sound; the fruit may be too ripe and taste bitterness (to some, bitterness is the best taste among).

Second, durian should smell little fragrant. Too pungent may indicates the fruit is too ripe.

Fourth, buy back home and test personally.

My Article

Posted on Updated on


my sengkang article 01Lately, a local Chinese Press published my article in one of the Leisure section. This is a prose; it talked about the beauty side of Sengkang@Promenade that is a famous estate park in Singapore.

This is the second articles published after 20 years of my “rest and relax” period.

I hope that this is not the last piece of my story.

But for sure, when ever I saw, I heard, I touched, I always think about what I write, is going to share with the whole world!

How exciting it is!

So for that, on this ordinary day, I would like to make this opportunity to thank all my followers and blogger friends.

Through my sincere heart, thank you very much!

Arthur_Percivall 02Percival road was named after Lieutenant-General Arthur Ernest Percival.

During the Second World War, Percival was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) Malaya; he marched down from this road by surrender himself, as representing British Empire to the Imperial Japanese Amy.

Hence, Singapore occupied by Japanese soldiers for 3 years and 8 months.

Not many people knew there was a sad story hidden behind this road.

Arthur_Percivall 01There is no road sign bring you to Percival road. You can Google it, it bring you where to go but just an ordinary road behind National Museum of Singapore, Fort Canning Park.

Where cicada is calling, where shadow of the forest lying on your shoulder silently.
