Good news!! NAIA has renovated the dreaded toilet
Posted on

A bit of good news, and I can’t believe it happened in my lifetime.
That dreaded toilet near the airline lounges at NAIA 1 has finally been renovated!!
This used to be the toilet signs. Note the draped skirt on the female figure (read: not Yohji Yamamoto)

NAIA

Imagine my surprise when I saw that they changed the signs!! My heart was racing!!
They seem to have switched the location of the male and female washrooms. The female symbol is now wearing a more normal dress

This used to be the icky green sink that looks like it goes back to the ’70s

OMG. Look at it now!!!

I can’t believe this is NAIA!!

There’s like freaking paper towels and hand sanitizer!!!

This used to be the dreaded toilet—can you smell that?

Now this is what you get—I must say, wrong choice of floor tile, where all watermarks can be seen

But hey, there’s toilet paper!!

and where this door used to look like the gates of hell

now there’s a safe place to hang your bag!

and a place to put your phone!!

So thanks to whoever did this! One kind advice though: please provide employment to more Filipinos. Perhaps a cleaning lady can be stationed at the restrooms to keep them spotless?
This is life-changing! I no longer dread using the loo at NAIA.
Now can somebody please fix the food selections? Thank you!

The toilet at NAIA1 now look like the toilets of NAIA3, only those in NAIA3 are more spacious. And there’s always a cleaning lady to dry the floors and sink, and ensure the tissue paper and paper towels do not run out of supply. If NAIA3 can do it, then I’m pretty sure NAIA1 can do the same. 🙂

Now that’s much better! Mababawasan na ang mga nagkaka-UTI/kidney stones sa pagpipigil-ihi diyan sa NAIA!

In NAIA 2, there’s a seat tissue dispenser inside every cubicle. Horray! Too bad, I wasn’t able to take a pic. Will do the next time, I take a domestic flight. 🙂

Is there a reason why they can’t have flushable TP? Is it more expensive? [Reply]CVS Reply:August 13th, 2013 at 10:54 AMtoilet paper is flushable naman. but in public places our weak flushes can’t accommodate all the tissues going down, that’s why we have trash cans in the Philippines next to the toilet—so they won’t clog. in more progressive countries like Hong Kong, the flushes are strong enough so you don’t have throw your used tissues in the trash can. [Reply]Grace dela Cruz Reply:August 13th, 2013 at 4:07 PMInteresting. Thank you for explaining. [Reply]Bea Reply:August 14th, 2013 at 4:10 PMWow. Kaya… Read more »

Naabutan ko pa the old dreaded toilet and the new one is definitely a step up from it. At least ngayon, hindi na cheap at “naiwanan ng panahon” yung NAIA toilet. 🙂
