There’s a XOD24 Durian Buffet in Bedok & It’s Free for Children & Senior Citizens

If there’s one thing durian lovers can agree on, it’s that they’re pretty pricey in Singapore.

And the amount you’re willing to spend typically isn’t enough to satisfy your durian cravings.

Whenever anyone asked me what I want to be when I was a kid, I’d say I want to be a durian seller.

Because that’s when you can eat all the durians you want without having to cough up a lung and a half for it.

Right?

Well, if you share in my glorious dream, know this: there’s no need to be a durian seller.

Because in the east of Singapore, there exist this godly durian stall that lets you eat all the D24 durian you’d ever want for less than $40.

Yes.

$40.

Bedok Durian Stall with All-You-Can-Eat D24 Durian Buffet

Located in the eastern part of Singapore at Bedok is a durian stall called Majestic Durian.

And they’ve majestically entered our lives by offering an all-you-can-eat XOD24 Durian Buffet at the cost of:

  • Mon to Thur: $38
  • Fri to Sun: $58

And that’s not the best part.

If your kid is under 12 years old, or your father/grandfather/mother/grandmother is above 55 years old?

They’ll get to eat for free.

All they have to do is to show proof (i.e. identification) to enjoy the buffet.

Of course, with such a good deal going on, what’s stopping people from chionging for it, right?

So make sure you call them at 8630 7351 for reservations before making your way down.

Buffet price applicable for dine-in only.

Exceptionally Good Durian Quality and Customer Service

Now, if you’re an avid (and long time) lover of durian, you’d know that just like humans, they’re not all created equal.

So there you are, wondering, will you pay $38 for crappy durian?

Seeing as how we’re trying to get our very fat boss to send us down for a New Year Durian buffet after the new year dinner, we checked out their reviews page.

And they ranked a whopping 4.5/5 stars.

Here are a few reviews that made us think they might be worth checking out.

Great Durians

Friendly staff

And most importantly, cosy store 

Which is very important because to fully enjoy the durian, you’ll need to eat it in some place comfortable.

And the best part? Even if you live too far away from Bedok, they do delivery as well.

And their durian prices are pretty reasonable too.

Address: Blk 84 Bedok North Street 4, #01-29, Singapore 460084
Opening hours: 10.30 am to 10.30 pm

How Does The World’s Richest Man Spend His Money?

Lobang from: http://www.moneydigest.sg/how-does-the-worlds-richest-man-spend-his-money/

In 2018, Amazon’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos triumphed over Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates as the world’s richest person. He owns 16% of Amazon, which he founded in his garage in 1994. His current net worth is a whopping US$138 billion (about S$186 billion)! His growing wealth was boosted as Amazon acquired the healthy grocery chain called Whole Foods.

As the only person in the Forbes list to rank with a 12-figure wealth, how does he spend his money?

PROPERTIES

It comes as no surprise that Mr. Bezos and his family has homes around United States. He owns a lake house, which is estimated to be worth about US$25 million (about S$33 million). His neighbors include Silicon Valley’s tycoon Bill Gates.

Not to mention, his Washington D.C. home belongs to a neighborhood where previous United States President Obama and Ivanka Trump resides. Said home was bought for about US$23 million (about S$31 million).

However, the state of his properties may change due to the recent announcement of his divorce.

INVESTMENTS

With all his wealth, he decided to diversify his portfolio. He has invested some of his money in Uber, Google, Airbnb, Washington Post, and Business Insider. What’s more?

Bezos Expeditions has invested in businesses including Basecamp, Twitter, Juno Therapeutics, and Workday. Imagine having these big names in your reservoir!

EXPLORATIONS

His contributions to space exploration is his most ambitious venture yet. You read that right! Mr. Bezos has a passion for aerospace.

His love of space led him to finance the recovery of the remains of the Apollo booster-rocket engines. The engines were located from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, which is about 14,000 feet down. At his request, NASA donated a restored F-1 booster to the Museum of Flight in Seattle. Moreover, he believes that his company Blue Origin can make affordable tourism possible!

The actualization of this passion project may commercialize space exploration. Who knew that having a honeymoon in outer space can actually become a valid option in the future?

According to the reports published on The New York Times, he is selling about US$1 billion in Amazon stock a year to fund this venture.

Are all his efforts worth it in the end? More importantly, will a Singaporean tycoon follow the steps of Mr. Bezos towards space exploration? Only time can tell!
