Following the major dip in durian prices earlier this year, the King of Fruits is set to see a price increase due to the year-end rainy season. With a poor harvest, the supply is low and finding a good deal for durians may be harder than ever. As such, we may have to think twice before indulging in this exotic fruit.
State-Your-Price Mao Shan Wang Promotion on 14 Dec!
Fret not, Durian lovers can gear up for this Saturday (14 Dec), as Durian Kaki rolls out their Pay-As-You-Wish Mao Shan Wang Durian event! For the store’s re-opening promotion at their new location in Balestier, they will be setting aside up to 500kg of fresh, top-quality Mao Shan Wang (MSW) durians. The promotion will be starting from 6pm onwards.
Customers will be given the chance to choose how much to pay for their durians – a great deal, considering MSW durians are usually the most expensive. Despite the wide variety of durians in the market, the combination of bitterness and sweetness in the MSW durian flesh makes it the most popular variety in Singapore.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home. With locations in Thomson Lane and Silat Avenue, the family-run nursing home was founded in the 1960s by registered nurse Lee Ah Mooi. The home is now run by her two sons, who continue providing specialised care and support for over 200 elderly residents. The total amount raised from the event will be announced the next day (15 Dec).
However, before you go wild with the durians, take note of some terms and conditions! As the durians are in limited stock, there is a maximum purchase of 2 durians per person. To allow more people to participate in the event, it will be conducted on a first-come-first-serve basis, not accepting reservations. Please remember to bring some cash, because only cash payment will be accepted!
Indulge In Durian For A Good Cause on 14 Dec!
With the year-end rainy season, the price of durians is likely to continue increasing. Grab some good-quality durians at reasonable prices, and help out the elderly while you’re at it! Since you can kill two birds with one stone, why not?
