This imported fruit emitted a fragrant smell but the firm flesh was not as sweet as those from the Asian region, namely Thailand, Pakistan, Philippines and Malaysia. Unlike baked desserts, I prefer my fruits ultra sweet.
Conclusion: curiosity satisfied, no more next time especially when its price remains at this minimum:-
Teaser: In reference to my opening statement, I’ll narrate an interesting tale when I feature this delectable fruit again. Very soon. *cross all limbs*

There were only 2 of us. ‘Thap-toi’ (means share table with other patrons) should work well for us. Sadly not all couples were as willing nor polite about it. The pair occupying a relatively big table we approached first was a good example. The male gave us a disgusted look while the female stared fervently at the ground under the table. Hey, we asked about sharing a table (which I swear could not possibly form part of their ancestors’ heirloom) not your liver. Sheesh. The incident spoiled my mood and my appetite. We walked away and scored seats at another table. In between throwing invisible daggers at the imbeciles who I saw declined seats to a family of 3 and later another couple, we had just these:-
A pot of Kok-Far-Cha (Chrysanthemum Tea)
Location:- Check it out here
Update: Dropped by their Bandar Baru Puchong branch last Saturday after 2pm for a bite. Oh my, the restaurant was empty. The loud idle young staff were fooling around with the utensils on the table. They were having lots of fun swinging and poking chopsticks at each other. Witnessing that I rubbed my chopsticks more vigorously with the tissue paper provided. At least I did not see them playing with the tissue boxes.. The food there? Phitoy's Tan-Tat (Egg Tarts) arrived with sunken custard in the middle and less than flaky crust.My order of Siew-Mai (Steamed Pork Dumplings) looked quite sad without their proper 'orange top'.

We sat al-fresco.
Roti Jala (literally translated as Bread of Nets) with Curry Chicken and Potato (RM6.00). Yummy. The plate was empty when it reached our end of the long table. We turned a wee bit ‘thick skin’ to request for an extra serving. It was worthwhile. Oops, caught my own shadow in the picture.
Spicy Prawns with Petai (smelly pods). (RM10.00)
The sambal (a mixture of chili paste) was good with rice but as for the green pods, it’s either you love it or run. Never share toilets with frequent petai consumers. Actually the smell lingers in their breath too. *choke* Gimme durians anytime.
Pulut Hitam ie Black Glutinous Rice with Coconut Milk (RM2.50).
It has been a long while since I’ve enjoyed such a delightful bowl which was not overly sweet. Only gripe was there were some grainy bits. Oversighted rice husks?
Special Honey Lemon Juice (RM3.00).Carrot Juice (RM4.00 for regular which was this glass, RM11.00 for jumbo)Tropical Blend (Apple+Orange+Carrot+Pineapple). Regular RM5.00, Jumbo RM13.00. I enjoyed this.
