Durian smell shuts down Australian library: 550 people evacuated
About 550 people were evacuated from an Australian university library on Friday afternoon after reports of a strong smell of gas.
The source of the smell was later traced to "a durian fruit in one of our bins", said a Facebook post by the University of Canberra Library.
The library also temporarily changed its Facebook profile picture to a sign that showed durians were prohibited.
Note: Even Singaporeans like durians so much, it is banned in all our public transport for this precise reason. NOT everyone can stomach the strong smell of durians, especially tourists.
Guess more countries are going to ban durians from public spaces.
