Durian Noodles a Nanjing Favorite

Pix of the nouveau cuisine: The dish served with durian flesh at left and vegetables 

For those who can’t have enough of durians – check this menu item from Nanjing, China!

A noodle maker has created a unique dish out of durian that is selling like hot cakes, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported. The dish, served with noodles and toppings like durian flesh, vegetables and other special ingredients, has become one of the hottest items at the shop near the Nanjing University of Science and Technology in China’s Jiangsu province.

The Dongbei native in his 30s and fondly known as Da Ge (Brother Da), said his wife’s love for the tropical fruit had spurred him into coming up with the dish. Wow! Just looking at the photo makes me want to try it!

On Tuesday, I attended the Speecom Toastmasters meeting and it was one of those rare occasions where I could just enjoy the meeting because I did not have any role to play. It was a good meeting and there was much hilarity in the proceedings. A 5 over 10 score for this meeting that I would describe as "average”. I think it's time the members push themselves to become better speakers.

And on Wednesday, I was the General Evaluator for the Inti International College Subang Toastmasters meeting. This meeting was just full to the brim with energy and vibrancy. The speeches were good and so were the evaluations.

And just as with Speecom, Inti Subang also adhered to punctuality and practiced good time management. This is so amazing because most Toastmasters clubs are slack and slow and they don’t start and finish their meetings on time – and that annoys me! Anyway, I particularly enjoyed this meeting and I am giving it a score of an 8 over 10!
