Click to enlarge. A hyper modern Korean toilet with buttons for everything
As it is still poring down with non existing rain here in Auckland – blame the Aussies for sending it over – it seemed like a great idea to revisit a water related feature in Korea.
When I encountered this toilet like thing in my hotel during my trip to Korea in October I had absolutely no idea how it works and what it does.
The best way to discover it to stand well clear whilst carefully pressing a button.
When a scary little tube come out of nowhere you’re just happy not to be sitting on that toilet. Don’t even want to know where that goes….
It worked out to spray water, with considerable force, straight up and nothing more. Thank goodness for that. For a moment there I got a very weird feeling about the Koreans.

Following the good example of a typical New Zealander (so I’m told) I decided to completely ignore the rain this morning. You see in New Zealand there is no bad weather, it never gets cold and doesn’t rain.
Just bought my new umbrella.. was a bit too late actually...
When I arrived at work, a whole 10 minutes walk from my apartment, I discovered that the Kiwis are right. Even though it appeared to be raining outside I was still dry!
Unfortunately, having arrived back home after a days work, I can tell you that it does rain in Auckland.
It is just that at times, like this morning, the rain isn’t very heavy. It was more like a haze or a dribble whereas in the afternoon the rain really came down on me.
After leapfrogging from one bit of overhead cover to another and still getting soaked I jumped into the first shop that sold something resembling umbrellas.
$29.90 later me and my new best friend ‘Umbry’ walked the streets of Auckland.
Time to get changed: dinner in Devonport tonight!
