Found: World-class banyo at the Shang
Posted on

Manila is my town. But restroom-wise, Singapore is the winner.
I never have to worry about calls of nature when I’m in Singapore. Nothing like Singapore restrooms—even if you’re in the mall. You can expect lots of clean, modern stalls with great design, like this one at Orchard Central

Some of Singapore’s restrooms are beautiful enough to make you cry.
Manila’s restrooms can also make you cry—for the wrong reasons. That’s why I’m in a constant hunt for Singapore-class restrooms.
Finally stumbled upon one at the East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza.
First of all, walang tao

So many stalls, no queue

They thought about important details, such as a place to park your things (say no to bagteria)

There’s even a baby station. Forgot to check if there is a breast-feeding chair

So much space

And clean-looking undercounter sinks!! Cause I hate over-the-counter bowl sinks!!

Smelled so clean, it’s unreal. Only thing is, you pay 10 pesos to go in. I don’t really mind, but seriously, nice toilets should be a standard, not a business.
P.S. Isn’t Shangri-La a Singaporean company? Maybe that’s why. #worldclassbanyo
