Malaysians are willing to travel if good food is at the other end.

But how far would Malaysians go for a good durian?

For a businessman from Datuk and his friends, a trip from Kuala Lumpur to a durian farm in Segamat by helicopter is no problem.

The businessman booked a durian buffet for four with Segamat durian producer Roman Harkin to specifically sample local durian varieties.

Roman’s durian farm in Kampung Bangas covers an area of ​​about 3 acres.

The businessman landed at the durian farm by helicopter at 2 p.m. last Wednesday as planned.

Roman, who shared the experience on Facebook, pointed out that the businessman was from Kuala Lumpur and contacted him through an assistant.

The businessman often eats popular durians like Musang King, but rarely gets a chance to taste those from Segamat, so he has reserved a durian buffet to share with friends.

Red carpet treatment

He revealed that it was also the first time he received a VIP by helicopter.

He contacted the helicopter pilot several times before the booking date to make sure everything was going well.

Also, he established an open place as a landing point at the durian garden.

Roman said the businessman and his friends had a great time at the durian farm.

They ate five durians and brought 20 back to Kuala Lumpur to share with relatives and friends.

In addition to authentic durians, Roman offered them mangosteen and rambutan from his farm.

The businessman also asked Roman to cook popular catfish at Segamat.

Helicopters are the favorite of politicians
