What I will present today is the "Seoul Best Toilet, 2003.12.18" for your viewing pleasure. You can find theses special little gems littered throughout the city--washrooms that have won the prestigious "Seoul Best Toilet" award. This has been the second award-winning restroom I have seen in Seoul, the other being at a park in Mokdong (its standards had dropped after winning the award I must say). How can you tell a "Seoul Best Toilet" winner versus a regular toilet? Well, for starters there is a monstrous plaque plastered to the wall near the restroom doors.
After taking that first step into a "Seoul Best Toilet", you tend to reminisce about all the other horrible washrooms you've encountered and embrace everything this restroom has to offer: the smells, the cleanliness, the paper towel dispenser, and the shock and awe of the thought that you are taking a step back in time, imagining yourself as the person who nominated this washroom as a "Seoul Best Toilet" candidate.
This washroom had a nice modern look, and included mouthwash (most fine establishments include mouthwash and hand lotion). Check out the cool sink (what have I come to? I'm not blogging about washrooms!!) I've experience lots of "unique" washrooms with my travels abroad. Some restrooms in China can be holes in the ground. I experienced my first squat toilet in downtown Macau (note to self: bring tissue):
As for our meal at Sizzler, the salad bar costs roughly 20,000w, but for 3000w more, you can order a full chicken dinner which includes the salad bar. So for 3000w more, we now have lunch for tomorrow. :)
By the way, if you did not know already, Sizzler is a "Restaurant within a Restaurant"...what does that mean exactly?
Do you have any interesting or memorable washroom experiences you'd like to share? Now this is what you call a conversation topic over dinner or coffee, LOL!
