Durian shells have their usage, and we typically use them to gargle salt water when we’re done eating the King of fruits. However, a vlogger from China recently caused debate among Malaysians when she revealed how she used durian shells.
In a video that was recently shared on her Facebook, the woman documented her experience of eating durians in Penang. She spent a total of RM204 on the fruit but what shocked the netizens was what she did with the shells after she had finished eating.
As usual, just like many of us would do, the woman gargle salt water with one of the durian shells. She then washed her fingers with a new batch of saltwater in the shell to eliminate the smell of durian on her fingers, before she continued to drink from the same water which she dipped to wash her fingers.
“It’s my own fingers, nothing to complain about,” the woman said.
“Malaysians are not that disgusting”
“Throw away the water that you used to wash your hand, don’t spread the wrong information.”
“You should’ve mixed the salt well, and you shouldn’t have drank the water that you used to wash your finger. I’ve never done that my whole life.”
“I bet the saltwater tasted nice after you washed your hands in it.”
“Aside from eating with your bare hands, you’ve done everything wrong. It’s too expensive, we don’t use mineral water, you wash your hands wrongly but most of all, we don’t drink from the same water that we use to wash our hands!”
“I was craving for durians when I first saw this, but not until you drink the same water that you used to wash your fingers. Malaysians are not that disgusting please.”
Fellow Malaysians, can you find what she did relatable?
