I think they renovated (but I’m not sure)

Yesterday I made sure to check out the restrooms at the arrival area of NAIA, Terminal 1.
The floor and wall panels certainly look “new”

Even though it has that old Japanese retro feel, kind of like those really old ’70s restrooms you can find in parts of Tokyo.
Somebody bothered to put plants. I’m not sure all of them are real.
Note the scary, retro lavatory and fixtures with left and right faucets, as if they didn’t know that more hygienic, hands-free, automatic sensor faucets exist.

This was inside the toilet stall, yes somebody bothered to decorate

Sad to say the toilet bowl is still retro (no offence to retro)

Tapos, walang tubig. See that giant blue, cracked drum of water there? The restroom attendant scoops water after each toilet use and flushes the toilet manually kasi no running water.
In fairness, she really did manage to keep the restroom odor-free. I really wish she had a fishbowl for tips because she really deserved to be rewarded for her efforts. That girl is waiting for her turn to use the toilet.

NAIA, when are you going to fix it?

Obvious na tinitipid nila! Tabo-tabo and a water drum? Unhygienic. Not acceptable! Those plastic (?) plants don’t help. They would only gather dust. And the restroom attendant? Bless her heart! Hope she does handwashing properly and knows proper posture technique. God bless her lower back!

there was water (pero ang hina) when i arrived a couple of weeks ago. the bathrooms are far better i thought. i had to look around pa before i saw the drum of water (dati kasi it would be the first thing you see). pero walang plants nun. sa naia 3, similar ang toilets. pero the first thing i see is a frowning toilet attendant (pero at least hindi na sila nanghihingi ng tips.)
oh and recent findings are saying the hands free faucets are not more hygienic – i think there are more parts inside where bacteria gets trapped.

It looks like they fixed it for the sake of fixing it. walang passion. 
I hate complaining but in my opinion, nag-aayos ka na nga, why not do it right?

OT,  i arrived the other night and OMG,i was greeted by long queues at the immigration counter.naloka ako.at sa duty free section where they sell wines, chocolates etc over the counter, parang sari-sari store!i forgot tuloy to check the banyo…then we went to the terminal that PAL occupies. There were not enough seats so i had to sit on the floor. I felt so kawawa. And this was after a very long haul flight. Very very sad. And, are we the only ones here who collect terminal fees????

 I can’t understand why they can’t fix the water supply.  And the restroom attendant should be called a “Bagong Bayani” along with OFWs. What she’s doing isn’t easy at all.

 Awwts,.sobrang laki pa naman ng expectations ko sa ating International Airports, dahil di pa naman ako nakapasok sa mga Airports. Naawa ako sa drum na blue, kala ko sa bahay lang meron. So embarassing. 🙁 Ano na lang kaya sasabihin ng ating mga Beloved foreigners. See this.  [http://abuggedlife.com/2011/05/20/department-of-tourism-budgets-php-20000000-for-tourism-website-call-for-bidding/#comments]  mas pinagtutu-unan pa nila ng pansin ang paggawa ng site worth 20 000 000 pesos kesa sa pagpapabuti ng ating paliparan. sigh..
