DurianMama Merel, our editor, left the Netherlands 23 years ago. She will always miss friends, family, raw herring and Dutch liquorice, but nothing beats living in Asia. This is where she discovered DURIAN. She is in love with the king of fruit, hence her name Durianmama. Merel is married to an Ozzie and the proud mum of two children and they have called KL home for six years now. If Merel is not editing, writing, or eating durian, she refurbishes old chairs.
