Who Stole the Durian From the Durian Tree
Remember the sing-along song/game?
Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar? This is an interesting pre-school game that makes you rotate round the group and sing the song whilst aiming at another person in this blame game. Not sure if this is morally good song as no one will own up who does it.
When I was in Batu Pahat and buying durian from Yong Sai, next to Ming Castle, I spotted some durians with gaping holes, NOT one, NOT two but a few in the baskets of durians, something you will not get to see in Singapore cos those would have been rejected by quality control.
Curiously I asked the durian seller and he pointed out the real crook behind
Who Stole the Durian from the Durian Tree !
Who stole the Durian from the Durian Tree
Jencooks stole the durian from the Durian Tree
Yes, you !
What? Mr SQUIRREL stole the Durian from the Durian Tree
Alas and so I found out that the culprit! Not only do they squirrel nuts away but squirrels too can bite through the torny hard shell to get to the durian flesh. Impressive !! they gnawed their way through and I am sure their jaws would have been weakened to enjoy the King of Fruits !
And I was told that whichever durian they had bitten that must be the best of the lot as the thief stole his loot, it must be the best of the lot.
But FINALLY we got the bigger loot instead but it was no BITE THROUG !!!!
