Don't Flush the Tissue!

I saw this sign at a ladies' toilet today.

The sign says:
1. Please do not throw sanitary pads and tissue paper into the toilet bowl.
2. Please throw sanitary pads into the sanitary pad container and tissue paper into the dustbin.

The instructions for sanitary pads are pretty standard in all public toilets but the one on tissue is kinda unusual.

That's because this very grand and impressive, recently renovated government building does not supply toilet paper and the tissue they are referring to are actually hand towels. Being much denser than toilet paper, it is no wonder they clog up the whole system when you flush them down the toilet bowl.

You might ask, so what if someone is having a bowel movement? Well, since there is no toilet paper available, and you are not supposed to throw the hand towels into the toilet bowl, I suppose you have no choice but to use water kampung-style.

Malaysia boleh!
