The Malaysian Durian Test:
ChangeU Foreign Interns willingly went through the test – out of curiosity. They just barely passed the Durian Test – but they did courageously tried a few times, and ate at least half a seed each – to the amusement and amazement of the store assistants. Malaysia salutes you Durian-Eating Foreigners!
SS2 Durian Stores Closed:
