The House of Poo

Post by vladimir »

Somewhere along my travels, I worked at InterContiinental Hotel. I'm not bragging, I'm very aware that if I hadn't worked there, I would never have gone inside it, as I cannot afford it.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Sofitel, again, via my employer, lest I be accused of bragging.

And a few years back, for work reasons, I had occasion to drop in at Cambodiana.

Can I get to the frigging point! No puns? I smell a rat...

Anyway, my point is this: at all of the above-mentioned hotels, there were no bum-guns. Only paper.

Having lived in SE Asia for 16 years, I am a bum-gun devotee, paper is for barbarians who enjoy nappy rash and Klingons.

However, I digress: my question is this:Why? I know that many wealthy Khmers go to these hotels. Do the upper crust forsake the bum-gun and consider paper a fad?Why not have both? Do the hotel laundries charge excessive fees for erasing the inevitable tiger-stripes?

I am puzzled and perplexed. I'm sure Jacobincambodia is also interested in this, considering his vested interest in all things excremental, and his bathroom fantasies.

Enlighten me, someone.

The Place gym is the same - paper only. And worse still, the chrome doorframe is polished to such a sheen that, if you should find yourself outside the toilet door inadvertantly looking up, you will see a clear reflection of the tenant. In addition, if you are sat on the throne, the door is full polished chrome also, so you get to admire yourself sat next to the open bin of stinking used toilet paper. Who said Khmer's have no class?

Cheer up vlad. We all know that the type of people that stay in places like that are arsewipes.

I guess it is because those places cater to westerner tourists that are not used to the old squirt gun.

I'm like you Vlad. 15 years in Asia I need me bum gun. Tourists just don't know how to work the things.

I remember my mate from NZ meeting me in Thailand for a holiday and drenching the bathroom trying to work one.

Okay, I can work out the logistics of cleaning yourself, but what do you then do with a wet arse?

In my travels, best toilet I ever had the privilege to use was in Seoul, RoK, Lotte Hotel. Heated seat and electronically controlled integrated bum gun with warm water.
If I'm not mistaken, Japan's super toilets blow air to dry damp bottom.

Is that a haiku ?

"Best toilet was South Korea
Japan's super toilet uses air to dry damp bottom
No paper for me thankyou"

@Stroppy, I usually use my fingers to dry. Left hand.
@Vladimir, My worst toilet experience was at Sorya. No bum gun or paper. :? :evil:
Scarier than malaria.

I've also been to that hotel and stayed in the exclusive lounge, its 5 star and a great place. But you're right about the toilet, after going to the toilet I came out depressed as the damn thing was clever than I was. Still a great shit though.
