#sol19- March 25, 2019
I have a love/hate relationship with public bathrooms, especially, it seems in Southeast Asia. I have my own informal rating system (dry floor, having toilet paper, a choice between squat toilets and Western style, and hooks on the stall door are all plusses). They are so much better here in Phnom Penh than they generally were in Kuala Lumpur-maybe because of the various signs they post. In KL I always had to travel with toilet paper and often would just hold it rather than use the toilets. Maybe I am just trying them out in more touristy areas.
Maybe it is because this restroom is in a mall (Aeon2, a Japanese company), but I, for one, appreciate the collective understanding developed through the signs (and when I finally get around to writing my review of public bathrooms wall art may be a new bonus category).
