Where to spot self-impose public urinals:
Here in the metro, common chilling areas to spot our handsome Pinoys doing the deed are Meralco posts (electricity posts), any posts in particular, building walls or "pader", trees, fences, "kanal", vehicle tires, boulders; name it and most probably they've urinated on it. What a common site and irritating scent for every one who bypassed it and murmurs "ang panghe naman!" Here's the full report to trigger the guilty guys and view the concept of imposing a house bill (the soonest) and hopefully implement a law for the community to legally follow - the most courteous and cleaner ways when and where to properly urinate.

Philippines Public Toilet views:
No matter how elegant the toilet area or how many number of cubicles installed/allocated for the public it will depend largely on the ethics and attitude of the users. Mostly, Filipino's lack of discipline and laziness to get out there and search for the nearest public toilets adds up to the ailing absence of pubic urinals. It make things worse when maintenance system is put on hold due budget shortage. The priority to achieved a clean environment free from germs and awful smell:
- public toilet availability
- free access to public toilet
- maintain cleanliness
- toilet user discipline
- health-consciousness and care for others
