Had the privileged again to shoot the 1st outlet in Malaysia for Tutti Frutti…
Here’s a short snippet from The Star:
“PETALING JAYA, Oct 21 (Bernama) — The Naza group of companies has allocated RM2.5 million to open five Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt outlets in Malaysia by year-end.
Tutti Frutti Malaysia’s general manager Zain Azrai Azhar Simin said three of the outlets planned were currently under renovations.
“The first four outlets will be in major tourist attraction complexes while the last one will be a shoplot which is going to provide the frozen yogurt environment,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after the launch of the first Tutti Frutti yogurt-oriented self-service outlet in Malaysia, located at the Sunway Pyramid shopping complex here Wednesday.
Zain Azrai said the second Tutti Frutti outlet would be located in IOI Mall in Puchong, Selangor, followed by two more outlets at Capital Square and Bangsar Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
Currently, Tutti Frutti has 120 outlets worldwide, with 70 of them located in the United States.”
Below are a few shots & a 360 Pano of Tutti Frutti… Enjoy!

Coming out of Sukau, we dropped by Gomantong Caves where we blessed to see the locals harvesting birds nest! 1 sack of bird nest cost about RM30,000 which is about 15kgs…
Just going to put up a 360 pano of the entrance of this cave… (Click on the image to view the 360 Pano)
There are more photos & 360s which will be on another post!
An write up taken from wikipedia on these caves:
The Gomantong Caves are an intricate cave system inside Gomantong Hill. The hill is the largest limestone outcrop in the Lower Kinabatangan area, Sandakan division, in the Malaysian state of Sabah. Situated in a Sabah Parks forest reserve, the caves and the surrounding area are a protected area for wildlife, especially orangutans. Investigation of the guano deposits were first made in 1889 by J.H. Allard of the China Borneo Company, and the caves were first mapped by P. Orolfo in 1930.
The main cave system is divided into two parts: the more accessible Simud Hitam (Black Cave), and the larger Simud Putih (White Cave) which lies above. The names refer to the main type of nests produced by swiftlets in each cave. The cave system is home to many other animals, including massive populations of cockroaches and bats. Outside one can see crested serpent eagles, kingfishers, and Asian fairy bluebirds. Access is in the form of a wooden walkway circuiting the interior.
For centuries, the caves have been renowned for their valuable edible swiftlet nests, which are harvested for bird’s nest soup. The most valuable of the nests, the white ones, can sell for very high prices.
The birds’ nest collection is an ancient tradition, and the trading of these nests has been done since at least 500 AD. Twice a year, from February to April and July to September, locals with licenses climb to the roof of the caves, using only rattan ladders, ropes, and bamboo poles, and collect the nests. The first collection takes place early in the breeding season before the swiftlets lay their eggs. The birds then make another nest in which they finally lay their eggs. After the young have fledged, the second collection is made. Care must be taken to assure that the nests are collected only after the young swiftlets have abandoned these nests. These individuals are very much in demand by the people and communities that hold the Government’s harvesting licenses. Edible birds’ nests are protected under the Birds’ Nest Ordinance and the Forest Enactment of 1968. Heavy fines and penalties are imposed on unlicensed collectors.
Every evening, over 2 million resident bats spiral out for their evening feed. As the bats leave, the swiftlets are usually beginning to make their way back to the caves after a day’s foraging. There are also bat hawks that linger not far from the scene and prey specifically on the bats as they leave their roost.

Had a short break in August at the land below the wind, Sabah! Was visiting my wife’s hometown Lahad Datu and later on, traveled to Sukau to view some wild life, especially the funny looking nose monkey (will show you some photos & tell some stories later)
We stayed at this kewl place, Barefoot Lodge. Service was excellent and really lovely food & people plus you are surrounded by nature. In front of the lodge is the Kinabatangan River. The longest river in Sabah, which is rich with wildlife.
Early in the morning, came out & shot a 360 pano at this man made jetty!
