A very small and rather insignificant observation, but I thought their toilet was very pretty. Almost too pretty to actually use it. It had that nice flower pattern all around the bottom edge and it matched the top part of it. It looked kind of small though. Did anybody notice it? That and the fact that their's is a very feminine-looking apartment.

When I first saw their bedroom I thought it was quite girlie. But I do have a question about their bathroom. Was that a shower head on the same wall as the door? It was behind HR when she was scrubbing that shirt. If so then my next question is...where was the shower curtain? I did notice that HK stepped down when he entered the room but still, wouldn't the water go everywhere without a shower enclosure? Just wondering lol.
I have read about Korean bathrooms that don't have a separate shower stall--the water goes all over and drains into the floor. I don't know if that's what they have in their apartment, but it seems like a good way to keep everything clean, even if you therefore can't have any towels and stuff hanging around.
p.s. I've seen such bathrooms in cheap foreign hotels, too, but they've been much tinier than HK and HR's bathroom.

Last year I traveled to Mexico and was very shocked that the toilet, shower and sink were all in the same tiny space, not separated by anything like a wall or anything like that. Kind of inconvenient if you ask me, what if someone has to use the bathroom, unless you're willing to let them see you naked, they would have to wait for you to finish taking a shower.
Speaking of which, have you ever heard of those horizontal toilets that some asian countries have?

It is to laugh. This is the funniest thread. If anyone has ever read Michael Bond's Monsieur Pamplemousse mysteries (which are hilarious), you might remember the one where he gets caught in one of the "new" public lavatories that completely washes its own insides out with disinfectant whenever someone leaves. I guess maybe these "unibathrooms" have the same function.
