Here in the Manila, people are too shy to use public toilets, and these people will do anything just to avoid it. When you say its a private thingie, its PRIVATE. Some people avoid it because they don’t want to see smelly and disgusting places such as the public toilets.
You’ll see these unpleasant public toilets in some transportation terminals, class B and C malls and also public parks. Lots of colorful graffiti around, lots of love ads, old or dysfunctional fixtures. They have no locks, smelly, no hygienic trash-bins and most of all… NO WATER or TOILET PAPER.
Now, here are some “bongga tips” for you to enjoy going out.
- Know yourself
- Bring personal hygiene products
What to Do When Nature Calls.
Most of us can feel it prior to the call, right?
It’s not true that when you are being called you are really called and you really have to burst. Haha!
Fifteen minutes I think is just enough time for you to find a place where to do it. Check the nearest clean and safe public toilet for you.
Me, I usually go to the nearest hotel if there’s one because they have clean restrooms. My next candidate are usually paid toilets, specially in malls.
Then there are also restaurants and coffee shops. Just be sure to be discreet or at least, order something for take out before you leave.
My last resort would have to be fast food restaurants or mall public CR’s. Here’s a tip – go to the highest floor of the mall because there’s usually less people around that area and the restrooms there are cleaner than the rest of the floors.
Anyway, always remember to just relax and be in control. Prepare the things that are needed and your presence of mind is a must.
Remember that you’re experiencing something normal. Everybody does it. That’s why it’s just better to do it the proper way in a proper place rather than holding it in and act uneasy and uncomfortable. Let it out or else you might lose your face in public.
Have a bonggang jabongga!
