It was 3am and the boat vibrations were still lulling me to sleep. My bladder was really full and I had an urge to urinate. So, I stood up with pride, walking pass the sleeping room mates of mine, battling with the inertia and my dwindling half-asleep-half-awake mode, I managed to enter the men’s – oops!!! No, I managed to enter the women’s bathroom with such drunken grace. LOL!
Just as I was about to sit comfortably on the toilet… I noticed something rather different. It was not your ordinary Flush Toilet Bowl where you just sit on it an make your “deposit” – It was a Squat Toilet! Ugh! – I thought these toilets were obsolete since the last time I set eyes on those was in grade school. Lol!
Using a Squat Toilet
Instead of a sitting position (as we were accustomed to), do a squatting position – you place your foot on the sides of the toilet. Place them slightly further apart around the hole. Let your thighs nearly hit your calves. Aim. Deliver. haha!
Squat toilets are common here in the Philippines but it is not everyday you get to use them. Here’s to another joyous session in the boat bathroom. Lol!
