no smoking, no food and drinks, no durian, no pets.

How do you interpret the sign? no smoking, no food and drinks, no durian and no pets right?

Wondering, what is durian being purposely highlighted? Isn't durian part of the food and drinks category? haha...



I guess you can only find "No Durian" signs in Singapore (and maybe Malaysia). It's usually found in public transportation.

Should durians protest for being marginalised? Haha...

That's a lot of forbidden fruit! Had to look up durians -- why that? Seems a bit odd, at least to an outsider. Have a good week!!

OH NO, the durian! I find them very pungent in smell. That is very funny signage.

Jilly said...

Yes indeed, the smell of the durian is awful. People say it tastes good tho but I couldn't get past that smell.

In Malaysia, you may find some hotel with the NO DURIAN sign too!!

Hee...hee..my colleagues and I tried smuggling durian into a hotel once...but out of morality reason..we ended up feasting 30kgs (there were 20 of us) of durians at the beach, behind the hotel. The pungeant smells of durian may be offensive to some hotel guests. That's why most hotels do not allow guests eating them in the room.

Yes, they smell awful. Saw them at the market near the Boon Keng station. But they're popular among Singaporeans, arent they?
