Hello Singapore!
Posted on

I’m here for family and kinda annoyed there’s no wifi in the room—maybe tomorrow they will fix it.
Well at least the Internet speed is pretty decent.

Back in Manila, the first thing I did was to check the banyo at NAIA.
I found this sign next to the loo I usually use.

Looks promising? I thought this restroom would have been renovated by now.
But the only thing they did was to repair “her” dress. Siguro dahil Fashion Weak.
Before:

NAIA

After: (ngek)
“Oh, and the guy has LEGS now!”—Ana

Some of the tiles were slightly altered, este painted!
Before:

NAIA

After: (Oh, and the pipes were painted too!)

Well at least they had toilet paper

and no smell. So it looks like the budget for renovation was Ajax cleanser, white paint and green Pentel pen.
I wonder when this restroom is really going to be fixed.
Nakakatakot, come to think of it.
(To be continued)

hello ms. c!!  we are in singapore the same week as you!  =)  (didn’t see you around anywhere though…)  by the way, in fairness nagulat ako sa naia terminal 3.  there are a lot of airport boutiques na, on the mezzanine level near all the restos.  i was surprised because that area has always been so bare, and now there are actually foreign brands being sold there na.  hopefully improvements will also be made soon in terminal 1.

The government probably paid A LOT of money for this cheap renovation.

 Our airport restrooms are a disgrace.  There is no hope.  I mean how complicated is it to renovate these restrooms anyway?????

 What a bad bad tile work (they couldn`t even find the same tile color anymore since those were “out of stock” or outdated since the bathroom is from somewhere around the 1980`s. Replacing all old tiles with new was not possible within the budget?  The paint job oh my God even my son paints better,  the green pen oh WTF. Why on earth does PNOY allow who ever is running NAIA to keep his job!!?? Oh yeah we know, HE IS BUSY DATING…It is really unbelievable. This is the renovation NAIA had been talking about because you do not first… Read more »

I was talking with Kenneth Cobonpue and he told me that he’s offering his services for free. Obviously the process of “renovating” hasn’t started yet. But what I want to know is — where does our airport fee go?? that’s a lot of money, P750 per person!

 Ang galing nila mang-uto ng tao, ha. False promises false promises.

I’d like to believe this is just a temporary renovation. Isipin ko na lang they are planning on something super bongga and chica, kaya yan muna ginawa nila while they are planning out their magnificent plan.  Asa pa noh?

 Okay, I know this is a seriously sad and infuriating issue but, Cecile, sobra akong tawa nang tawa sa reportage mo! 

And I am sure, sa audit ng expenses, ganito ang nakalagay:
Ajax – P10,000,000
Paint (white) – P7,500,000
Pentel Pen (green) – P2,000,000

I’m oc so i’m so disgusted whenever I have to use the bathroom at NAIA. Kung simpleng banyo eh, hindi nila maayos then we can just hope for other improvements at NAIA. And that cord connected to the signage of the restroom is an eye sore.

Ack! I can only imagine all the dirt that is trapped forever underneath all that paint ! Sobrang corruption na yan if there was a budget for this tapos ganyan ang ginawa nila. Oh, and the word ‘comfort room’, not everyone knows what that means and for some, specially foreigners, that sounds plain nasty. I hope they learn how to use the term ‘rest room’ instead of ‘comfort room’.

It’s as if those people managing our airports or our government people  have never been  outside the country- seen and smelled the difference of the other toilets of airports abroad. Or maybe they have their own arinola with them when they travel? Ha ha ha…
