Tikam Batu BH: A Very Strange Observation !!!

During my recent visit to Tikam Batu BH I saw this very strange happening.

The ground floor which was almost 250 feet away from the main entrance hole do have signs of birds staying.

In the beginning I feel very strange however upon closer inspection of the BH I then discovered the reason why.

Let me describe a bit more about this wrongly designed BH.

The owner claimed that he was attracted to having a BH about four years ago and dump in about RM 400,000 into his dream BH.

However after four years into operation and two famous consultant came to arrest the BH problems he got only 5 nests.

How unfortunate and no investment return so far.

One great error about this BH was the way it was designed especially where the Lubang Antara Lantai (LAL) were situated.

The so called consultant came out from his "learning" from a very popular Sifu located in a neighboring country that the LAL should be located on the opposite site of the main entrance hole.

Which look some thing like these sketches:

To reach the ground floor the birds will require to fly almost 240 feet finding the three LALs located at the end of each floor.

Can you imagine the amount of light at that location when the house is with only the main entrance hole was opened?

To me it is impossible and strange.

However something I saw on the third floor came to light to me why.

After failing to attract birds into his BH the owner engaged another consultant who claimed can solve his BH problems.

This new consultant started to shut the main entrance hole (a the monkey house wall) and opened two new entrance hole below the monkey house area and the second on the 3rd floor side wall.

Look at the attached photo.

The second opening allow enough light to guide those birds to fly out in the morning.

Without this new hole there is no way there will be enough light to reach the ground floor areas.

This new discovery is something interesting and I told the owner that with a wrongly designed LAL holes positioning this new thing might help to populate the lowest floor.

Well still the BH is with no nests improvement.

Still with 5 nests but with some traces of bird shit spots on the lowest floor.

I plan to modify and revamp this BH once I complete my work in Segamat, Johore.

An interesting new thing that will help me with the next BH located in Padang Serai.

The same consultant was engaged to erect the BH there.

Exactly the same problem and the BH owner was so pissed off with him.

He was given a warning that if he continue building failed BHs one day some one will chop his leg.
