After the fun trip to Bao Sheng Durian Farm, I couldn’t stop Mark from talking about going back there every single day. He has been asking around - friends, family, strangers, to see if anyone can give us a ride up the hill again. We don’t have a car here, so the farm is a bit out of our reach.
Then the opportunity arose when all my uncles and aunts came back to Penang this past weekend for my eldest aunt’s birthday. Mark used his charm (begging) and convinced them to go the next day.
The weather didn’t cooperate for a sunset view from the farm, but we enjoyed devouring the durians again before the season ends.
Mr. Chang was kind enough to share some pictures of his farm with us. For those of you who have not seen durian flowers, here you go:
