The Exabytes Durian Party

I am no durian fancee so I am not that bothered if I can eat any of them for free. However, I will do it for my durian obsessed PiggyBeng! ๐Ÿ˜›

About 2 weeks back, I received an email invite for a FREE Durian Buffet from my webhost so I decided to jump on the chance. PiggyBeng was of course filled with excitement and can’t wait for the day to arrives though he has been having durian buffet almost every weekend ever since we returned from the US! It will definitely be different since he don’t have to pay a cent and yet can enjoy to the max! ๐Ÿ˜†

On that day (25th of June), we decided to go early (the event starts at 2pm) so we can get a good parking. It was a hot day and there were no shelteredย parking unless we park across the road which we did not. We just make do with the parking lots available.

This is actually our first time coming to this location. It is pretty near to the usual durian farm we frequent at Titi Kerawang. This place is of course more spacious and the best is, they also served assam laksa! A bowl of assam laksa after having those creamy durian is a must! *slurp~*

Since we were early, we have to kill time by looking around the place. Discovered that this place also sell a varieties of stuff…

I also went around snapping photos on what we will be having later as I know I won’t have the time when the makan-makan starts! ๐Ÿ™‚

The invites are for 50 pax and each pax is allowed to bring a partner so I estimated about 100+ people attending the event that day with a handful of Exabytes staff attending as well. The durian above were meant to be finished by us!

I was more than happy to discover that they also includes rambutan, mangosteens and cempedak to the event! Since I don’t really fancy durian, I can eat the rest as I am a huge fancee of rambutan! ๐Ÿ˜€

After the welcoming speech by one of the Exabytes’s staff, most of us went to queue up for a bowl of laksa…

It is not the best assam laksa but hey! It is free so no complains! ๐Ÿ˜€

.

.

Even Darrius wanted a bowl!

The rest of the people (PiggyBeng included) went to queue for the durian which were opened by the stall’s staff…

.

.

I am not sure which varieties we had that day but I certainly remembered the ‘Ang Hay’ or Red Prawn in Hokkien which has tiny seeds!

.

.

Even our little Miss Samseng was having the time of her life enjoying these creamy stuff together with her daddy!

.

.

Darrius on the other hand was not too keen on the fruits but rather on the cold drinks served. He ate a little of the laksa and complaint that it was a little too spicy and drank lots of nutmeg and preserved plum drink.

Glennedine was of course having more fun than her kor-kor since she enjoyed durian as much as her daddy. I even threw her some rambutan to disturbed her!

.

.

We stayed on till about 4pm before we decided we have had enough. ๐Ÿ˜› Everyone was full… especially PiggyBeng since he ate the most! He was extremely pleased too! In fact, I even ‘tapau’ (take home) a bag of rambutan since they can’t finish and the boss just want to clear everything off.

Aaaah! What a good ending to a wonderful event!

Thanks again to Exabytes for inviting us! ๐Ÿ˜€
