Fil-Canadian model shows amazing public toilet in Shell Tagbilaran

In the Philippines, public toilets are popularly called CR or comfort room. Ironically, there is nothing comfortable about using them. In fact, it’s very unusual to find a clean and comfortable public toilet in the country that’s why many people opt to shed a few bucks for a “paid lounge”.

A certain public toilet in a Shell gas station in Tagbilaran, Bohol is making rounds in the internet these days after a Filipino-Canadian model uploaded a video of it. The features of the comfort room surpassed his expectations as well as everyone’s.

In the Facebook video he uploaded on November 24, Jason Godfrey gave a quick tour of the unbelievable men’s toilet in Bohol. Not only was the toilet fresh and clean, it has posh fixtures, mirrors paintings, and other luxurious-looking items inside it.

“I can’t capture the smell, but it’s super menthol here.This toilet is better than my room. It’s better than my entire apartment actually,” the model said.

To top it all off, Godfrey said the toilet even offers free Wi-fi.

See what’s inside the Shell Tagbilaran toilet.

His video has quickly gone viral getting almost 25,000 likes and over 18,000 shares as of writing.

Many netizens commented that toilets in several Shell gas stations in Cebu and Bohol are quite similar.

Public Toilet Transformed into a Home

Who would have thought that an abandoned restroom can be transformed into a cute apartment?

Apparently, architect Laura Clark took interest in reworking a public restroom located in Crystal Palace. The restroom which was built sometime in 1929 and last used around the 1980’s was purchased by Clark in mid-2011.

Although a lot of work needed to be done in the underground public toilet, Clark quickly transformed it to a habitable turf.

“I ended up doing a lot of the labouring work myself, because it was such horrid, hard work that I struggled to keep people on the job,” she said in an interview with The Telegraph.

Measuring more than 600 square feet, Clark’s one-bedroom apartment is well-lighted, cozy, and beautiful. It is definitely a far cry from the once stinky restroom.

What’s the best way to show someone you love them? There are many ways to do that – and the premise there is that you do something that would make your loved one happy and feel appreciated.

While flowers and chocolates work for most girls, there are also those who prefer more practical gifts.

For Giearson Agapito Genova, he knew the best gift he could give his girlfriend Mariz on their 6th anniversary is to give her room a makeover.

According to Genova, his girlfriend’s room became a sort-of stock room after her father died but while he had always encouraged her to get the room fixed, she always had some excuse not to do it.

Knowing his girlfriend loves to decorate and would surely enjoy putting her Hello Kitty collection on display, Genova kept on persuading her to agree to the makeover. Perhaps a bit tired of his nagging, she finally relented – with the condition that she doesn’t do the redecorating. He’s OK with that.

For a complete makeover, Genova also had the ceiling redone. In fact, it was the first thing that he had fixed. From the top, he worked downwards.

He got the walls repainted and shelves installed for his girlfriend’s collection.

Since he’s redecorating the room, he thought he might as well fix the bed frame; then, he bought a new foam mattress for good measure.

He also made sure to get her cabinet redone and even bought her a new wall fan.

And because she loves to decorate, he also bought her two bags full of various items she can use to complete her room’s appearance. For finishing touches, he even got her a pink robe.

The overall effect was awesome! While the room was small, he was able to make the room look cute and functional without getting it overcrowded with stuff. Best anniversary gift, yes?

Dirt like pet hair, crumbs, dirt, and daily dust are Roomba’s targets. It is a circular robotic vacuum that glides through the floor. It has sensors that allow it to move away from walls and furniture legs.

It also has a sensor to know the edge of the stairs so it can change direction before it falls. And best of all, it apparently is a good tool to entertain your toddler, too!

“The Green Heart of Bogota” is The World’s Greatest Vertical Garden

Published

How would you like to live in a building as refreshing as this to look at?

The smell of fresh air, the swaying green leaves that somehow waves at you,  and the joy it brings that reminds you of the beauty of the things around you…….

Be ready to be amazed with this World’s Best!

An 11-storey-building covered with over 33 square feet of plants situated in the middle of Bogota, Colombia, is known to be the largest vertical garden in the world.

Famously known  today as “The Green Heart of Bogota”, Edificio Santalaia was the result of the “green” minds of the Spanish designers, Paisajismo Urbano and Columbian company, Groncol.

After 8 months of tidious planning and another 8 months of hard work, the “State of the Art” vertical garden was finished in December of 2015, and had given a new meaning to the vital role of the plants in the lives of mankind.

The selection of plants totaling 115,000 of 10 species and 5 different families in the World’s Best and Largest Vertical Garden, was the product of careful assemblage of the plants, chosen by Ignacio Solano, the head of Paisajismo Urbano, together with his troupe along their journey to Colombia’s Choco rainforest.  The plants were chosen in such a way that they appear homochromatic to achieve that neutral look.

Paisajismo shared, “THE SELECTION OF THE SPECIES IS FUNDAMENTAL  IN THIS TYPE OF GARDENS, SINCE THE BIODIVERSITY IN A VERTICAL ECOSYSTEM ALLOWS THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SPECIES THAT FORM IT, BOTH PLANTS AND MICROORGANISMS.”

“THE LARGE SURFACE AREA INVOLVED WAS AN ADDITIONAL DIFFICULTY COMPARED TO OTHER VERTICAL GARDENS SINCE IT INVOLVED THE USE OF A GREATER NUMBER OF PLANTS,” HE ADDED.

Taking into consideration the great variety of plants used in the garden, irrigation was by far, the greatest challenge that Solano and his collaborators had taken into account.  This made the adjustment of the chemical parameters of the water and its nourishment a serious matter until Paisajismo Urbano ended up using  40 irrigation sectors that were automatically controlled depending on humidity and solar radiation.  It was also set-up in such a way that water flowing from the living walls of the building  and the wastewater from the residents were recycled.

The world’s largest vertical garden was not built for  merely  aesthetics but for a greater significance to human kind, according to Paisajismo Urbano.

Their website stated, “A vertical garden of this size is capable  of producing the oxygen needed by more than 3,100 people a year, processing about 775 kilograms of heavy metals , filtering more than 2,000 tons of harmful gases and catching more than 400 kilograms of dust”.

The carbon dioxide emitted by the plants compensate the carbon among 700 people and filters the air for the PMm emissions of 745 vehicles.

The green foliage also helps diminish the heat inside the building on Summer seasons and lessens the usage of air condition units.
