Lady told me about the tremendous awards that I got...thank you SOOO much! I am really honored. I was told that these awards needed passing, but there are so many doggies who already have it, so I don't know who to pass it to! If you haven't got one, my dear friend, please do let me know, and I'll gladly pass it on to you! *grins*
And it's really cool to hear all the lovely comments on Lady's post! Rest assured, she will be back, coz she said she has gotten a bit addicted to it as well! *wink*
Okay...back to the business of the day. This is going to be the longest post that I have so far, so please bear with me! *smiles innocently* What does it take to be truly an 'Asian' dog? Mom says it's the 'King of the Fruits' test! What is the King of Fruits, you say? A little Googling got me these answers:
- Durian, is often called 'The 'King of fruits' by fruit aficionados. This large, heavy fruit has a thick thorny outer skin. When ripe, the pulpy fruit inside the durian pods taste like butterscotch, cream caramel or banana custard. The smell of durian is unmistakable, the first thing you will notice. It either doesn't bother you at all, or otherwise. This is one tropical fruit, once savored, you will absolutely love forever, or the opposite.
- A large fruit from southeast Asia that has a creamy, gelatinous texture and a nauseating smell similar to that of stinky feet. The flesh is savored by many from this area, but outsiders find it a difficult flavor to become accustomed.
If you can guess, the first definition is from an Asian food glossary, while the other is a culinary dictionary from the West. Not to prejudice the Western doggies, but Mom says this fruit needs an acquired taste to truly enjoy it. If you get a chance to try it, I do urge you to...then you will know if you are truly 'Asian'. *winks*
Gramma bought loads and LOADS of this fruit two days ago, and we have been feasting until now...can you imagine that? Here are the pictures to prove it (it will be very long...you have been warned!)
Mom made me pose next to it....eep! I was nervous about those prickly thorns...
