Oh No! Where’s the Bidet?


You walk in a toilet cubicle, ready to go… then you realized, there’s no bidet! What to do?

Ideal Toilet Set Up

Here’s an ideal public toilet set-up for most people. A clean seat, flush (of course), a water bidet and a couple of rolls of toilet paper (because sometimes, you just cant have enough). This is the ideal – but most of the time, especially here in the Philippines… it will look something like this.

No Bidet

A Typical Public Toilet Set-up around the Philippines is just a Toilet + Flush… Bidet is a luxury and most of the time, you need to bring your own toilet papers (unless it is a hotel or someone’s home).

  • If you’re a guy doing number 1 (pee) then this set-up is pretty much perfect
  • If you’re a girl doing number 1 then you may need to at least bring some toilet paper
  • If you’re are planning to do number 2 (poo), then there may be some problem here.

For most people, a toilet+flush+toilet paper combination is pretty much adequate, but for Filipino’s they might need something more… a bidet! We don’t just wipe, we wash!

So what happens when there’s no bidet in the toilet? Oh no! What to do?

Tabo

Of course, locally you can always request for a “tabo” or a hand held bidet but if all else fails (or if you are abroad), we need to be a bit more resourceful otherwise we won’t be comfortable during the rest of the day. The question now is, How resourceful can you get? Hahahaha!

I have heard stories from friends people use the hand held shower, a pitcher (not sure where they got one) and the most ridiculous was the water glass!! Eeeww, but desperate times calls for desperate measures right? Personally, I am not very comfortable with public toilets (“namamahay”) at the same time, I am a bit lucky that often times, there’s a bidet in the hotel or the office where I am staying but when there’s none… I just postpone it until I get home.

So how about you? How do you handle a no bidet, no “tabo” and even a no toilet paper moment?

Hanggang sa muli, Paalam!

7 Corners Breakfast Buffet at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria 56

Buffet Breakfast is always a very pleasant way to start your day during your hotel stay. 7 Corners is no different. If you can recall, I recently reviewed the breakfast buffet of Holiday Inn Manila Galleria, and it was really good. Since 7 Corners in Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is a sister hotel, their breakfast buffet spread is pretty much similar, the only difference is, the ambiance. Fab at the Holiday Inn Galleria has a more refreshing ambiance as compared to 7 Corners which is a bit dark and gloomy – yea, less refreshing hehe..

Zesto Slice… Zesto Reinvented.


Zesto Slice 7

For most of us (the young once at least) we all remember Zesto as the super sweet juice in a doypack where punching in the straw is a big challenge. Now, Zesto offers more convenience. Aside from the usual Zesto Juice drink that we all love, they introduced a new line of fruit juice product – Zesto Slice.

Zest-O is proud to announce its newest product namely Zest-O SLICE fruit juice drinks. Zest-O SLICE is a fruit juice drink that brings all the goodness of your yester years into a delightful beverage that fits your modern lifestyle.

Zest-O SLICE comes in 355ml bottle, that is just the right amount to quench your thirst and isn’t heavy on the pocket. It comes in four flavors. The first two flavors are straight fruit flavors that is a sure hit to Filipino consumers, Orange and Dalandan flavors has been formulated basing on the 30 years of experience of Zest-O in providing quality fruit juices. The last two flavors are our mixed fruit flavors, playful and exciting new taste, Grapple is a combination of Grapes and Apple, light and refreshing. Mango Bursts is a combination of Mango and strawberry delighting the taste palates of choosy consumers.

Here are the 4 flavors of Zesto Slice:

Zesto Slice 1

Mango Burst: Mango and Strawberry in one. This one is a bit on the sweet side and the between the 2 flavors, the strawberry flavor dominates the mango.

Zesto Slice 2

Grapple: Grapes and Apple, this one is good. I love the combination, if served chilled or iced it becomes a very refreshing juice drink. The grape flavor dominates the apple.

Zesto Slice 3

Orange: Classic Zesto taste. WARNING: Don’t drink at room temperature

Zesto Slice 4

Dalandan: This one is my favorite. The distinct taste and flavor of dalandan is very refreshing and enjoyable. I was expecting that it would taste very artificial but I was wrong. It was really good!

Zesto Slices are available everywhere and is sold around P18.00. These juices are best served iced or chilled.

Mirinae House: A slight change of heart


I am a coffee lover and I am not a big fan of milk teas - until now. I really don’t like milk teas, the first few times I tried them I got a bit nauseous and I felt a little gag reflex. That is why I never tried milk teas again – until yesterday. I got myself a Quick Delivery of Several Milk Tea Flavors from Mirinae House which is formerly known as Milky Way Tea CafĂ© in Ortigas. I said to myself, why not give it a try one more time - and it paid off.
