Imagine being in the mall having lunch with your friends. All of a sudden your tummy starts rumbling and you feel the urge to go. You race to the bathroom ready to relive yourself. When you open the stall you see this:
There's no toilet paper! WHERE'S THE TOILET PAPER???
Don't be silly. Its right here:
Why would toilet paper go inside the stall? Surely its better placed outside to monitor it for theft. They can't risk anyone stealing toilet paper. Never mind the fact that Filipinos use their hands and a bucket of water to wipe themselves. This totally makes sense.
So always remember that in the Philippines there is no toilet paper in the public toilets. If there is it will be either outside the stall or hidden away someplace and you might have to pay for it!
What does it matter anyway? Why all the fuss about hiding the toilet paper when Filipinos do not use it? They literally use a bucket and water to wipe themselves. Even though they sell toilet paper at the stores you will not find it in a typical Filipno house but you will find a large slimy bucket full of nasty water and a ladle. Even a toilet in a government office might not have any paper.
The lesson is always bring your own toilet paper and never shake hands with a Filipino.
