July, 2010 visit to an orchard in Raub, Pahang. Raub is about 110km from Kuala Lumpur.
All you can eat durian buffet for only RM30. Price varies from season to season. You will get to eat all the branded durians such as Musang King (Raja Kunyit), Ho Lor, Bamboo, Red Prawn, Penang 24, D2, D24, D101 etc.

Do update your Garmin/Papago maps from Malfreemaps.com before heading there.

King of all fruits! Yum!
Among the types of durians Eddie has in his Raub orchard.
Besides the King of Fruit, we had some Queen of Fruit - mangosteen as well!
Eddie Yong the orchard owner showing us how to open a durian using a what I called "durian pliers" :D
Having a feast!
One happy dog!
Give me all your durians or I'll shoot!
According to Eddie, this is to prevent squirrels from climbing up the trees.

Durians make you do crazy things :D
Not sure if these were duku or langsat or dokong?
Some ripe ones here. They taste just like rambutan but better, and best of all the skin of the seeds don't come off together when you bite off the flesh!
