I Miss This... Part I

One of the things I miss about Japan:
High-tech toilets!

I'd miss this every single time I had to park my derriere on a cold seat each time I needed to do my business. I miss fiddling at all those buttons too! You know, those lovely ones where they even got buttons for noises to cover whatever "natural noises" you might emit when doing your business.

I surely didn't miss this one below. Actually, I'll give them a miss, unless I have absolutely no choice but to enter one! Not only do I have to squat, there are no water source other than the flush and I need water to clean!

But that said, in Malaysia, I'll give a squat toilet a go rather than hover at suspect looking sitting toilet trying to aim properly.

  3. Ooh yeah, I also prefer squatting while in public toilets! If not, I have to put piles of tissue papers on before sitting on those public toilets!!

  4. Lina,
    A girl who studied here falls in love with this seat. She bought the seat and brought it back to Bulgaria. They fixed that seat and now almost all the neighbors makes excuses to come to the house and use it. True story documented on TV.
    Why don't u do the same. Next time buy the seat and fixed it at home. There is instruction manual for the fix man.
    I always believe if you want to see a truly clean person, check his toilet first, not the living room!

  5. Of course for men, it's much easier cos we can pee standing up! Hehe. But when it comes to big business, oh boy, I need that thick pile of tissue papers and if the toilet does not have tissue, I will just die!

  7. @foong, Kak Lela,
    I wish I can install them at our house. We actually looked for both the toilet and Japanese style bath tub to install but sadly, the bathroom configuration in our apartment is not good to put a high-tech toilet. Once shower, everything also wet!

    foong,
    Got at a few Japanese restaurants but not that easy to find lah. :D

    Kak Lela,
    I envy that girl!

  10. I never like using squatting toilets. I prefer the seating ones. But I never ever sit on public toilets. A big no no.

  12. @Su,
    LOL. Like my son lah. Suka "melawat" toilet. :D
    Tapi, maknya lagi suka.... teringat dulu ke China& HK, mati hidup taknak minum air sebab tak nak kencing. Huhuhu

  13. @Mei Teng,
    Using a toilet without seating do require a good sense of balance and strong thigh! XD

  14. @LR,
    True. We never know what transpired before we enter that particular toilet. Eeeeee....

  15. Hi... you may or may not be pleased, but I have nominated your blog for an 'award'... please free to reject if it is too troublesome to accept...

  16. @Lrong,
    Yup, saw the post and link. Thanks so much for thinking of me but I'm quite lazy doing them. XD

  17. I always hover when I meet the seating ones, even when they're not public.
    I guess old habit dies hard. ;)

  18. One problem of this warm up toilet is that you tend to stay there longer than expected, especially if you take book or newspaper with you!

  20. @Con Artist Trickster,
    Your habit give you a pair of strong thighs, I bet! XD

  21. @Yoshi,
    That, I can't dispute. Especially on those cold nights/mornings. It's hard to leave the warm seat. LOL

  22. @Bengbeng,
    I agree. I always look for squat ones here but I do wish those toilets aren't so wet and puddling!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ahhh the old Squatting loo, grew up with those sort of loo hehehe but ask me to use that I'll think a gazillion times especially with my weak knee ..

    ReplyDelete
  24. @cuteandcurls,
    Hahaha... but when in an emergency, a squat loo doesn't look so bad. :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow.. Must go get this and install in own house.. Got gadgets all, like Batman movie la! Batman go to toilet movie.. LOL! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Agreed, love the high tech toilet with flushy sounds and heating! :D

    Sadly I have to use the lower one every day at work. But it's definitely the better option sometimes as well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Bella,
    If you install one, invite us blogger friends over. We'll test and blog about your toilet! LOL

    How about installing a theater and games console in the loo. No need to come out! XD

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Ri,
    Look at the bright side. Using the lower one can sure limber you up. All those squatting. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh I completely understand, I hate the squatting too when we were there in China and that's all they have there!

  30. @Ayie,
    Better squat than having to sit on a dirty toilet though. ;)
