Outdoor Buffet

There is nothing more that can attract Malaysians, especially the Chinese, than buffets. Whether it's a RM 88++ per person buffet dinner at a 5star hotel or this RM 10 durian buffet.
Complaints about price increase in food, fuel hike are rampant currently. Some innovative entrepreneurs took the opportunity to combine value with public sentiments and ta-da...ALL YOU CAN EAT DURIAN BUFFET!!!
Durians is one of the unique fruits in our country. It is an acquired taste. They have always come in grades, as usual the higher the grade, the more expensive it is. Prices range from RM3 - above RM 18 per kg. Patrons of this buffet probably realise that with the different grades, they probably won't get the best ones by just paying RM 10.. but what the heck..RM 10 for buffet is quite irresistable. Besides, you don't have to take the trouble to open the fruit and throw away the shells later on.
There are tonnes of Malaysians who are willing to take the trouble and pay a high price to savour good food. Therefore there are some durian-lovers who organised trips to orchards to enjoy the best durians. The last I heard, one such visitor paid RM150++ for this. much are you willing to pay for fruits?

If I go the PJ, would you take me here, Murphy? :) All you can eat durian buffet sounds very tempting ... even though I don't know how much I can eat. I used to be able to eat two whole buah durian for myself ... :)
