Dear Lynne...

You said.. "Your flatmates from China? Do they shut the toilet door when they do their business? I bet they don't. I once went to a restaurant toilet halfway thru' my meal (in China) and saw this lady doing "big" business in a door-less cubicle, I lost my appetite on the spot ... "

I thought... naaa.. how can it happen here...

and guess what... YOU ARE RIGHT!!

Last evening, i got out of my room to get some stuff from the kitchen... and i saw my flatmate sitting on the "royal throne" doing her business!

WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE THINKING?!?!?!?!

I was kinda embarrassed.. i think she was too.. she quickly scrambled and shut the door...

Why? Why? Why don't you just shut the door when you do your business?!?!?!

maybe they're just not used to having a door. period.

try walking with really heavy footsteps or shuffling your feet when you walk out from your room... to give them ample warning to close the toilet door the next time?

gosh. at least it's cold over there, so the smell isn't SO bad... or is it? heh... sorry.

At least you weren't eating or thinking of eating when you saw that!! Otherwise you will definitely lose your appetite for at least 3 days!

Just a thought lol. and I think since she's embarassed she'll bear it in mind..

The only time I crap with the door open is when I'm certain that no one's at home. Open the door got more ventilation la.

the doors of my toilets are built in such a way that it will close automatically unless u wedge it open. mmm this may not happen to me, unless they forget to lock the door. wahahaha.
