Fit for a king: A picture of Quest enjoying durian which he had posted on Facebook.
PETALING JAYA: The pungent smell of the king of fruits have been known to turn off many foreigners, but CNN anchor Richard Quest just loves it.
The famed English broadcast journalist was seen enjoying his fair share of Musang King durian at a stall in SS2 here on Sunday.
“Enjoying durian in KL. Don’t know what the fuss is about. Fresh durian is lovely and fruity. Taste is rich and creamy,” Quest said on Twitter.
He tweeted several photos of him enjoying the pungent fruit with the hashtag #notthatbad.
He added that the price of durian is skyrocketing because of growing demand from China.
Quest was in Kuala Lumpur last week to moderate the Global Transformation Forum.
