Meet Melanie & Tobias, a Swedish travelling couple from “MT World”. They are strictly fruitarians. They mainly eat from Ah Wai SS2 durian store when they are in Kuala Lumpur. I introduced them to my good friend Ah Wai, the original Durian SS2 store owner. SS2 is a suburb in Petaling Jaya, 20 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur city center.
They have very healthy skin complexion. Wonder it’s their fruitarian diet.
MT rate the following countries for durians:
The most durians ate between the two of them in one sitting: 30.
They go for the RM20 (about US$6.3) eat all you can.
