A Durian Pastry Made Me Smile

Rough day…rough week! I didn’t have time to eat my lunch and on my way home I just kept thinking about what I could eat when I got home. Luckily for me, I had a piece of Durian Pastry from Asian Pearl (one of my favorite dim sum places) from lunch last weekend. Yes…durian does have a distinct smell, some may say it smells nasty. When I was a kid, I hated it too, my siblings and I would lock the doors when my parents ate it. But, my parents made us try everything at least once, something I am extremely grateful for.  So one day, they stuck a little bit into our mouths, we tasted it and realized it was sweet and actually tasted really good. And the strange thing is, after you try it, the smell changes too, it suddenly smells delicious! So after trying it, we always enjoyed this fruit with our parents.  Yummy!
