A Tale of Two Toilets

The EMEA IT A-listers gathering in Fujairah this week must have been in ecstasies at the Meridien Al Aqah's high-tech lavatories. They feature a range of electronic bidet controls from "medium spray female" and "medium spray male" to "hot blower" and "cold blower". Fantastic. French-polished nether-regions in seconds.

Far less impressive is the plight of the more lowly lavatories at Dubai's latest shopping megaplex, Ibn Battuta mall. According to a source, the men's lavatory seats at Ibn Battuta constantly need replacing. The reason? Workers from the nearby labour camps keep going in and using the toilet hose as a shower whilst standing on the seat.

"Not quite the image Nakheel is looking for I am sure," the masdaar comments.

Apparently the toilets in the York International hotel have gone one better and have a "hot female blower".

That is the height of Asian patrioticsm ,ie, using a western closet the asian way.
Ibn Battuta You dont need to replace just put something slippery on the seat & that will do the trick.Who would want to go to the toilet that gives broken bones for whatever you went there to give in the first place.
