I'm just doing a screen-shot & re-posting slowly cos it ain't easy to import every single photo.

Durian Mobilization 2014

Dr Leslie Tay from ieatishootipost has been organizing Durian Mobs since 2008, with the simple idea of having a durian appreciation course to educate durian lovers on the different cultivars of durians. 

This year, the event was supported by Singapore Kindness Movement. Ticket is priced at $38 & this year's beneficiary will be The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund

This year, the event was held at Telok Ayer Green CC, Hong Lim Park

The event venue was already packed with people by the time we reached at about 6.45 pm

We are supposed to find our group of 10 & the volunteers were quick in finding us a "table"/ group

Group no.19 - This is also my favorite number!

Us =) 

Dr Leslie Tay & Dr William Wan giving an introduction & thank you speech before the durian feast starts

Plastic bags were also provided to all groups for disposing the durian husks

After the opening speech, here comes the durians!

Volunteers helping to give out the durians

Must-do! Take a Durian selfie =D

The D24

Dr Leslie says "When you're moody, eat a durian" .. 

I agree! 

But... ... "When you're happy, eat a durian too!" =D

Dr Leslie then invited Ah Seng (the durian supplier) up to the stage to give everyone a briefing on how to choose a good durian & a real Cat Mountain king 猫山王

After which, we were presented the King of the King - Cat Mountain king 猫山王! These are harvested in the morning & immediately imported to the event! 

The quality of all the durians were pretty good

Ah Seng also throw in some Mangosteens for the event

The Mangosteens are very pretty & sweet =)

Someone asked me if the event is worth going, I would say... ... it depends on how you look at it. The durians are quantity over quality & for the fact that it's partially for charity, it's definitely worth going.
