Durian, the King of Fruits, is also infamous for its spiky skin and very strong odor. Legend has it the Durian originally had smooth skin and smelled like freshly bloomed flowers on a sunny day. What could possibly have happened for it to change so drastically?
ALEXINE: I personally do not eat durian, but this is a wonderful tale of humility and appreciating individual differences. Also a great lesson on Philippine fruits!
ADRIANA: The story has a moral lesson, "Do not be mean to others or there will be consequences...ses..ses...es...." (she says you need to use an echoing voice).
