Sorry For Not Updating !!!

This few days I am away visiting Kota Bahru, Kelantan, Malaysia.

This unique state, one of the 13 states in Malaysia, is the only state with very little shops that provide entertainments.

No Spas, No massage, No Magnum, No Damacai, No Bars, No nightclubs and many more.

Life here is very quite and the only place to go, at night, are some kopitiam shops and perhaps at a teh tarik spot infront of Ridel Hotel. That again will be shut down at 12 am sharp.

The capital city, Kota Bahru, is the Islamic Town of Malaysia.

The number of BHs seem to be everywhere along the streets.

Many shophouse owners are turning to swiftlet farming since no one wanted to rent the upper floors.

Well from the few failed BHs visited, I am sad to say that the number of failed BHs are plenty.

I was specially flown into this city to help a friend who was given the tasks to turn around a number of failed BHs plus new ones that need proper renovation.

Conducted a bird call test on a piece of land, visited a failed BH outskirt of KB, inspected three BHs under revamping operations, stop over at 4 new BHs (2 in tumpat and 2 in Kuala Krai) for the complete sound system and renovation.

While visiting those places, I recommended the following ideas to the party who invited me over:

1) Minimize Research but focus on Helping Those who operates Failed BHs.

Most of the people that I came across will talk big about their research works that normally never works. They will try so many things and usually 99.9% never brings any benefits to their BH. The higher the frequencies of entering the BH and spending longer hours in them will makes those birds feel stressed. They might not want to elect your BH as their place to stay.

The best is to carry out those specific things that are prooven to brings those wild birds inside the house and stays. Try not to be a scientist inventing things that have been invented before.

Get the advise from someone who have with him all the proven list of things to be carried out and carry them out one by one.

2) Setting Up of A maintenance Team.

A specially trained maintenance team is badly required in most of the areas in Malaysia.

The team must be given adequate training on how to ensure that those badly maintenance BH be given a proper cleaning and improve the attractiveness to bring more birds into the house.

It will be good if the team can advise those BHs owners to improve the quality of nests produced in their BHs.

3) Pre Assembled portable cabin BH

This is something new that I have been thinking of doing. If there is a fabrication yard that can pre assemble a simple 15'X30' cabin complete with every thing that are needed to lure those birds, there will be lots of possibilities for helping those less fortunate people.

The idea is to provide a suitable affordable package for those less fortunate with idle land at the back of their Kampung houses.

If we can convince them to allow us to install these cabin close to their house and we look after the cabin on profit sharing basis, I am sure both the owner and the operator will benefit greatly from this idea.

The interesting thing is that if the BH does not works in on spot, we can arrange to move it to a new location is required.

4) Outlet Selling Swiftlet Farm Equipment and Services.

Every town that you visited you will find that it is hard to find any dedicated shop selling swiftlet farming equipment or a swifltet BH service provider.

KB do have one but the owner, I heard, have gone downstream and have little interest in helping those people with BH problems.

My idea was to set an outlet to be serve the swiftlet communities in the state.

5) Mobile swiftlet Truck.

The time have come to have a team of qualified workers that move from one BH to another to maintain BHs in the state.

A team consisting of two to three properly trained workers will greatly benefited the community.

The truck can also be used as an advertising service.

Well the trip seem to serve its purposes and I am looking forward for a more exciting activities for today.
