PAY-AS-YOU-WISH MAO SHAN WANG DURIANS
Durian lovers, you're in for a treat. Durian Kaki is selling Mao Shan Wang (MSW) durians at whatever price you wish to pay as part of a fundraising drive this Dec 14.
The amount collected from the durian sales will be donated to Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home to care for the elderly.
There will be around 400kg to 500kg of MSW durians available on the day of the fundraising, which will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, so you may want to head down early before it runs out.
Each customer is only entitled to two durians so more people may participate in the fundraising. Take note though, that only cash is accepted.
