When Singapore held a 4-day long exhibition for a Malaysia fest on their little island, Singaporean authorities had prohibited durians from being showcased.
So, the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) cleverly brought the tasty petai (bitter bean) instead!
As many as 10,000 strands were brought into the tiny island of the south from Perak (instead of just 4,000 strands because there was high demand).
Initially, Musang King and other variants of durians were supposed to be brought for the expo, but Singaporean officials feared the stink, hence, decided to forbid its display.
Visitors were, of course, very disappointed when durians were not to be seen at the expo.
Well, Twitterjaya has started to take a mickey out of this situation.
hsshshhsahahh i stan FAMA

Besides, did they forget the stink that petai causes in your urine?

Whilst some Malaysians are wary of Singapore’s next action;
We bring petai after singapore baned durian. Soon or later, Singapore gonna say petai is their main delicious food. Same happen to nasi lemak dan cendol.
