Calling all durian lovers (Victimized)

May 10th, 2007
Is there such thing as free sampling? The answer is "Yes" and "No". When visiting any durian store in Singapore, be careful of the vendors offering you "free" sample of their stock of durians. They may jump a surprise on you after you have tasted them. They said that the durians they have "opened" have to be bought by you at ridiculous price of $20/kg. They continue to say aggressively that they have opened the fruit and have already keyed in the purchase. You may be put into a very difficult situation and, like all Singaporean, trying to avoid trouble will reluctantly purchase one piece of durian from them at $62!

This hard-sell tactics deployed by some stall-holders are disgusting.
