    just while I'm here...

    why is it that the g/h shower so often sprays onto the dunny? - or even worse - the bogroll?

    I mean -- how difficult is it to design a bathroom that avoids this messy, sloppy situation?

    And the floor runs away from the drain hole ?

    As you mention, shower sprays straight onto toilet seat, floor slopes away from drain -- other highlights:
    washbasin without drainpipe,
    no towel hooks,
    clapped out old electric water heater that looks so dangerous I'd rather have a cold shower,
    no mirror (I mean -- how on earth could you build a bathroom without a mirror),
    and of course, the classic:
    The hot water tap, which no mater how long you let it run, always seems cold, that is, until you try the cold which is even colder.

    Still having a chuckle at the above , and you know its not always the obvious places that do your nut in .

    A few months back I stayed at Inchantree Resort at the far end of Kanchanburi , which in some ways was an excellent choice , but ....

    They just tried far tooooo hard .

    Oh everything worked fine and it was all modern , minimalist grey slate everywhere , which looked great , apart from someone put 10watt light bulbs in the bathrooms .

    How in earth this Hairy Farang managed to shave every day is still a puzzle to me .
