Save Water: Pee in the Shower

How did your earth hour go?

Mine was OK. My family decided to eat out, so it was definitely "lights out" at home :-)

Just glad to do our part in saving the environment.

While we are on the topic of being environmentally friendly and cool, let us talk about ways to save and conserve energy.

Right now, I want to talk about water and taking showers.


You've probably heard the saying "Save water, shower with a friend".


Well, I've found a much easier way to save water, alone - Just pee in the shower.

Toilet flushing or in most cases here, the "buhos" system, accounts for most of the water use at home.  One flush wastes around 4 to 5 liters of good water. Water you can use for more worthwhile causes like cooking and drinking right?

Or if you're finding it gross (urine is sterile btw, and some say cures athlete's foot)  this video shows you how "one scoop can clean you up" and I dare you to do the same. 

Though honestly, it's easier to just pee.

Singapore

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)



Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

Lingerie, baby steps and women's liberation

If you ever heard the saying "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" then you can relate to this post.

In Saudi, a 2006 law banning men from working in female apparel and cosmetic stores has never been implemented due to various conservative groups who are opposed to the idea of women working in common areas visited by men and women, like malls.


Finally, the government has decided to enforce this law effective this month after long standing protests by Saudi women.


Strict Saudi law prohibits mingling of unrelated men and women.

Which kind of makes it awkward for women to be accompanied by male relatives in buying their intimate wear from men behind the counter.

"I and many other women like me were always embarrassed to walk into lingerie shops because men were selling the goods," said Saudi shopper Samar Mohammed.

She said that in the past she often bought the wrong underwear "because I was sensitive about explaining what I wanted to a man."

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
