The Durian 榴莲 ...


Many Singaporeans casually refer to the Esplanade as 
"The Durian". 
(widely known as King of Fruits in South East Asia) 
...
It shows that Singaporeans really enjoy their durians that 
they even designed a building with a durian-based theme.
...
The main form of attraction of tourist to the Esplanade must 
be its irregular shape and the enormous theater.
...
You can't miss it when you are at 
Marina Bay, Singapore 
...
(Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the 
actual Fruit "Durian" to show you today)
