Tycoon sends private jet to S'pore to buy durians
The Star, a Malaysian newspaper, reports that Macau's Gambling King, Stanley Ho, sent his private jet to collect 88 durians from Singapore.
Ho spent approximately RM4,800 on durians from the 818 Durian Stall in the small city-state off the southern coast of Malaysia, reported the China Press (another Malaysian paper).
Sharing is caring, of course. Accordingly, Ho gave 10 durians to Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing.
China Press also reported that Ho's worker apparently intended to buy 98 durians but low supply due to bad weather meant that only 88 was available for purchase. In Singapore, the Musang King durian, the type of durian that was bought, is priced at around RM38 per kilo.
