Clean toilets create good impression

-A A +A

Thursday, March 13, 2014


THERE are many who say that they could not pee or drop it off when they are not in their own personal toilet. This is so true to many as one will always want his quality of hygienic manners.

I call it toilet because that is its true name. It is not a restroom or a comfort room when there is nothing to do there but pee or drop, or clean your hands or face. Rest or Comfort would mean that you can relax and have a cool time maybe even for some minutes. In many toilets in this country, the sizes are just enough for one or a few to come in and do your thing.

***
In the malls, it is always a crowded destination. But there are malls where toilets are not crowded. That could mean that the sanitation maintenance is not hygienic that is why ladies would prefer to wait for another place to go.

So many eateries and restaurants get approval from City Health Offices but their toilets are stinking and dirty. What are the CHOs doing for approving such permits? Can they not be strict in this process? Toilets are important ingredients of tourism promotion and the CHOs must look into this.

In Bacolod City, there are still many toilets in eating places that have remained stinky. Hoping that mayor and his men will look into this. Toilets are taken for granted not thinking that this is the crowning glory of an establishment and reflects the character of the owner.

In Silay City, I have to visit Tito Chuckie’s Native Restaurant owned by former San Miguel Beerman Chuckie Quevenco. This is some development for Silay City so I will invite my good friends Jimmy Golez and his son Vice Mayor Mark Golez for some lunch treat there.

Oh by the way, my friend Butch Gerasmo called me up asking what I wrote in my article because someone (who is maybe fond of intrigues) called her that I was praising tourism guides Maricar and Jennylind for their efforts. I told Butch tell your friend that you remain to be my friend. Butch is with the tourism industry for so long and she does her part too in the city promotions.
