Engineer Kamal Ezany Azizan swapped the busy city for the hills of Ijok, Taiping to run his grandfather’s durian orchard.
Every morning, Kamal begins his day with a hike up the hill where his grandfather's durian orchard is located.
Some of the trees there can grow up to 50m tall.
A sure way of telling if a durian is good or bad is by taking a whiff of its famous smell.
Kamal puts the durians he collects in a sack.
But cleaning up the thorny king of fruits is not Kamal's favourite part of the job.
Kamal takes a short break in a shed in the orchard.
The best way to sell a durian is to display the pulpy fruit inside.
A basket of durians is weighed on a scale. The bulk price is about RM5 per kg.
Durian seller Azmi Zulkifli loads up his car, hoping to sell all of the fruits in the evening.
