Drinking Durian Water

I went to eat durians with a friend together with our wives recently and he posted my photo in his instagram. I was so surprised to see myself drinking the water from the durian's skin at the stall in Cheras. My wife had earlier taught me that it is a popular remedy of old wives tales to reduce the bodily heat and bad breaths after eating so many durian fruits.




Oh well, I tried it and felt good after that durian water drinking rituals. No bodily heat and no bad breaths or smelly fingers whatsoever! Have you ever tried this?

    1. I think to eat durian pulps directly from the fruit is more exciting and traditional. Someday we might eat durians from the cans too. Muahahaha

  4. Used to try it long time ago, but they packed it, without the skin...

  6. Hello twilight man, i love durian but the thought of drinking water from its skin sends a shiver down my spine. I always have a 600mL mineral water bottle next to my durian though before i even open it - but you are right, water is good to prevent "yit hei" (heat).

    1. Water is our best friend always. I heard of silly websites saying coke had killed people who ate durians and drank coke right after.

    1. What a sad thing that you don't fancy durians! They are the best fruit in the whole universe!

  11. Oh yes, heard of that, in fact, tried that. Some say if you wash soak your fingers in the water (contained in the durian shell), the odor will go away in no time.

  12. I don't eat durians, so I've never drank from a durian shell obviously but, in my last trip to Sitiawan, my friends who ate at a durian stall did exactly that....they believe it reduces bodily heat too from eating too many durians! :D

    1. 3rd person here who dislikes durians... They are the best fruit with rich nutrients.

  14. We did this all the time back when it was normal to open our durians ourselves at home. Nowadays we mostly get them in styrofoam packs so no more drinking from the skin anymore. I don't remember if they were particularly effective to be honest. I was still very young then...

    1. My friend eats durian using a spoon! That way no finger smells.

      Try again drinking the water from the skin.

    1. You are the 4th blogger who does not eat durians. What a surprise to hear this as you are the one who loves challenging lifestyle and eating.

  16. I did this when I was very young. Did not notice any significant difference. Maybe coz I was very young, so not too bothered. These days I don't even bother to do it. I can tahan panas one so never mind lah, no need all these.

    1. I would try to drink coconut water after durians. More effective la.

  17. I tried this back when I bought durians in their shells but to me there is no difference from drinking water from a cup or bottle as long as we drink more water after eating durians.

    1. It makes sense that we just need more water after durians. Whoever invented this idea, I just wonder....

  18. I ever eat a durian and it’s not available here too... I was thinking it was similar to jackfruit but except the fruit inside, nothing is eatable in jackfruit.

    Seems u like durians lot!

    1. I read some websites that durians are not native in India but are growing well in Kerala. I had a good laugh reading someone's website saying it tasted so bad like someone French Kissing his dead grandmother!! Muahahahahaaha

  22. Tried this remedy and don't think it's works >_< But the durian stall put the durian shell under the tap water, so u will automatically wash your hand using "durian shell water" ~.~

Happy Deepavali To All My Hindu Friends

I had a very hectic day today which drained all my energy. My car's air-con had a leakage and it had to stay overnight at the workshop....
