    I would totally try a cheese donut, haha. And I’ve always thought the fish thing would be really neat to try. Although I’m sure I’d be grossed out too. Did your feet feel good afterward?

    Weirdest thing (I didn’t eat it) was in Indonesia where they serve bananas with cheese and chocolate on it. My teenager tasted it and said it was ok. I don’t like bananas so I was never going to go there.

    I’ve smelt durian and there’s no way I could taste it. I can’t get past the smell. Mangosteens are sold here in Australia in the supermarkets when they’re in season, although I haven’t tasted them either. As you can probably tell, I’m not the most adventurous eater…. LOL

    Fish eating my feet, yes done that. It tickles like crazy and I’m really ticklish. It was fun.

    I heard Durian also described as cat urine! It seems to be a love hate relationship; people either love it or hate it. No in-between.

    And yes I would put my feet there, just to try it. I may just make myself die laughing because I am usually quite ticklish!

      ohhh cat urine, haven’t heard that one vivien! agreed…no in between with this strange fruit and the person who ate it first had to have been SO brave. if you are ticklish than you would certainly laugh uncontrollably!!

    When you mentioned your trip to Malaysia, I had to stalk it down, I’m sorry. 🙂 Glad to see you being so adventurous! My family moved to Malaysia when I was 13 and they’ve never left so it holds a very special place in my heart. The Petronas towers were definitely a good place for your photo tradition! I’ve tried durian more than once….I’ve also tried durian flavored ice cream which is probably the worst invention in the history of food. It tastes exactly like it smells, to me. Mangosteen, on the other hand, are delicious and not smelly and I’ve never before seen a sign banning them! I wonder if there was some tragic mangosteen incident that the hotel isn’t telling us about…

      wow! i can’t wait to stalk you more and read more about your story, rachel! that would be quite interesting to move to such a different country like malaysia at the ripe age of 13 so i bet it does hold a special place for you.

      uuuugh i kept seeing signs for durian ice cream and just couldn’t bring myself to try it and that sounds like the right move! i was trying to figure out mangosteen banning too! maybe stickiness or actually i like your idea that there was some sort of tragic incident that banned them. glad we connected!
