Pee Hole


The tiny hole is meant for peeing only

Squat toilets in the country are not as common as in other Asian countries. It’s only in Benguet that I’ve seen several toilets of this type and normally in eating places that serve as motorist stops along Benguet-Nueva Vizcaya Road.


Although squat toilets like those in Japan and Malaysia have flushing system, every one of those I’ve seen here is meant to be flushed using small bucket of water. One thing that caught my fancy on a couple of toilets is that the design is meant for peeing only.

Hole Punched Info

Provincial buses in the Philippines commonly use hole punched paper tickets as passengers’ fare document. By means of hand-held single-hole puncher, the bus conductor or the ticket guy at the terminal will put holes on the ticket to indicate fare amount and other relevant details.
