It is not uncommon to see one massive roll of tissue paper in Korean public restrooms. When you see this, you should know that there will be no tissue paper in the stall. I have often walked into a private stall, seen no toilet paper, and then cursed if I had forgotten to pack tissue in my purse.

Note: In Korea, always pack tissue in your purse.

I enjoy this massive roll of tissue paper immensely. First of all, it makes sense. It is easier for the janitor to restock. Also, it makes me laugh when I see girls grab a lot because then I know they’re going to have a BM. I laugh at the lack of privacy. mawhahahahahah

sink-showers

 

So sink-showers are something I have had to get used to…they are not that difficult to operate….I just tend to forget about the switch in the sink that moves the water pressure from the sink to the shower head. Taking a shower with the sink-shower is only different because there is no shower cubicle in the bathroom. The bathroom is the shower. You close the door and turn the shower on and water goes everywhere. I have to kind of lean my head back under the sink to rinse my hair…but other than that it’s pretty easy. The only problem I have had is forgetting to change the water back over to the regular sink. So, as you can see from the cartoon…if I go into the bathroom fully clothed to brush my teeth or wash my hands sometimes I surprise myself with a shower of water. Hopefully I will learn…but it was comforting to find this cartoon…at least I am not the only one.

Happy April Fools!

The Room of One's Own

On today's episode of MTV cribs....    Okay so I know that MTV cribs would never really want to see my Korean apartment what with its lack of infinity pool and Porches in the garage, and the fact that it's no longer 2000, and I'm not in Destiny's Child. 

But just in case you ever wanted to see a Korean studio apartment, or you want to play compare and contrast with my last Korean apartment, this is the blog post for you!


Vegan Christmas Gifts

What do you buy a Vegan for Christmas? This question had my family stumped for years. I didn’t want to add to stress of Christmas with my ‘preferences’ but when asked if leather is okay, or if it really matters that a lip balm contains sebum (sheep fat), I had to smile and softly say, “Yeah, it does sorry.” Sorry because it’s inconvenient to seek out cruelty-free gifts, not sorry because I act according to my beliefs.
