Pink Urinals Going up in Streets of Manila

Pink Urinals Going up in Streets of Manila

Hello everyone!... i just want to share something what i saw when we had a conference in Manila...we were riding in a bus going to Divisoria when i saw this pink thing... at first, i was attracted by its color..haha.. i was really curious what is it... but i was shocked when i saw men inside it standing.. i wonder what they were doing, and then i read the sign"Male Urinal"...hehe...i was so ignorant of it 'coz we don't have any of it in our place...
hmmmm...I also wonder if there is also a Female Urinal...what would it look like! haha! :)

These pink urinals were the projects of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Bayani Fernando. The MMDA has installed since last 2004 a total of 418 male urinals along the major thoroughfares, the bulk of which are on EDSA, where there are 40. Each costs P37,501.56.

Bayani Fernando pointed out that it is much better to have such a facility The MMDA chief also said transport organizations have been asking him to install urinals in their terminals because they provided relief to drivers and passengers. compared to the sight of males relieving themselves against the walls and electric posts.

Its a nice project... but urinals would surely have a foul smell because many people are using it despite the regular clean-up being done by the MMDAs Landscape Maintenance Group...

Yeah. That's what Fernando came up. Hahaha.. Some people would, i think, find this stupid but as Filipinos, we definitely know the reason why these pink stuff were built. Tsk tsk.. Something to do with discipline. =)
