So it isn't a surprise for most of us to have a mindset that the Japanese have brains in just about any field. Since I came here, I've found out that this stereotype way of thinking doesn't really work that way. I came to know that they can be no brains when it comes to construction.
Yes, I kid you not. Although the Japanese have the technology to build buildings that can withstand earthquake, still they failed miserably when it comes to building small stuff. Funny, no?
I'll take the most simple example - toilet cubicle.
these were taken from my hostel
Those people who built these cubicle must be having a double standard towards the TALL people like me. I wonder why can't they make these cubicles much higher. Girls, I know you don't use these stuff before. So you perhaps don't get what I'm talking here. Never mind, I understand. But guys, I'm sure you know what I mean, right?
When these cubicles are build so low, how am I suppose to position my *ahemm* birdie *ahemm* properly when I do it? For sure, I'll miss the target most of the time, right? Let me give you a clearer picture.

As I said just now, I'll end up dirtying the whole area.
For your information, I'm not trying to stress that all this fuss comes from the length of the *ahemm* birdie *ahemm*. There's no connection between it's length and the height of the cubicle. Neither that it means that if you have a longer down there, you tend to release more kekwa teh (chrysanthemum tea).
It's just that when you are tall, the position of the *ahemm* birdie *ahemm* just doesn't fit the height of the cubicle. You'll know how it feels when you're a tall person. I'm just sharing my experience.
That is why if I ever wanted to build toilet cubicle, instead of Japanese contractors, I would rather have PCK Pte. Ltd. to built it for me.
