22) Two articles in the toilet cubicle

Posted on Updated on


I managed to extract two informative articles pasted on the inner side of  toilets cubicle partition in Singapore Botanic Gardens.  The open-concept toilets surrounded with beautiful plants and chirping birds is indeed a good place for inspirations!

1) Do you know the milky saps from Chiku trees (manilkara zapota) produces a gum that was the original source of chewing gum?  Does it remind you of the ‘Chicklets’ brand chewing gums or others?

2) Do you know the sea coconuts in our local dessert are from the fruit of palm, borassus flabellifer.  The male and female inflorescences are born on different plants.

While doing your business, you’ll enjoy the beautiful plants and birds chirping around you.  What more, you can enrich yourself with this information.  Isn’t it an idea as brilliant as the beaming sun!

    Wait a second! Do you mean people are using the toilets and people can see them? I don’t think I’d like that too much, Sydney! I prefer the toilets with a door or a similar partition! Beautiful nature pics though 😀

    Oh, I read the open-concept explanation and am relieved people are not seeing you as you’re using the toilets! Sorry for not reading the explanation first. That’s a lovely piece of music you included 🙂

      I am glad you were relieved. I believe that is the purpose of the toilets. lol Sorry I couldn’t help laughing when I read what you wrote.

      I also enjoy the music when I come to this blog. 🙂

      The open concept is in the basin area, while you step out from the cubical you’ll see plants and trees in the surrounding. As for the articles, is pasted on the inner side of the cubical partition. I’ll visit the other cubical the next round for my educational tour! Wish me luck! Haha! 🙂

    Kind’f humorous to say the least. This idea may become widespread, who knows. I’m game for public entertainment! AHA! Thanks for sharing.

      Yes, is so better than putting a commercial ads! Do you agree? 🙂

    What an educated and civilized toilet you went to! I’ve been noticing that the newer airports, theatres, and even hospitals no longer have doors to the public washrooms. Instead, there are these angled entrances. And yes, most gadgets inside are hands-free like the flushers, faucets, dryers, etc. very sanitary too.

    Enjoyed the music again, Sydney!

    I love the Singapore Botanic Garden! It was the first place I went on my first day in Singapore because it was near my hotel and I figured I couldn’t do much harm bumbling around with jet lag in a garden. I was amazed at its beauty and the orchids – it’s quite the magical place.

      Sydney Fong responded:

      Yes, truly a loveable place for relax and distress! This is my favorite spot you can see me always walking around with the camera in the Park!
      Thanks for sharing your experience with us during your Singapore stay.
      I see you around! Have a great day! Cheers! 🙂
