Video Transcript:

" Hello, my name is Sunny Quek. I am from Sunlife Durian Puffs & Pastries. We are doing a durian puff retail business at Causeway Point, where we hope all the durian lovers will like our products.

When we choose the durian puff, basically I think is because majority of the Singaporeans like durian puff very much. When we bring foreigner friends to try the durian, initially they were afraid of the durian smell and think that it is overwhelming and they dare not to try. But after they try, surprisingly they love it! Even our Singapore government also try to promote durians as an icon to other foreigners. It is good that we love the durian, we try the durian, we taste the durian and we know what is the best for the customers.

A lot of people depend on the durian for a living. We can see a lot of products in the market, whether it is in any durian puff or any other form of products, all will have a durian flavour you see. That's why I think it is a very important part of the economy.

Actually it is very tough and tiring you know, the hour is very long, so early morning we have to come and do the preparations to get ready in time for customers to make their purchase. That's why you can see us working very early in the morning and go back home very late in the evening. We have to face it, we are earning a living and as long as the customers accept the products, they feel happy, I think we should be happy on that."
