The Filipina and the Tabo

Recommended Posts

This past Christmas I finally bought my wife a proper tabo, after 30 something years of using Burger King cups and such. I did it sort of as a joke gift. She seemed more delighted with the tabo than with the new iphone she also got.:biggrin:

Most larger Asian supermarkets have a housewares section. You can usually find a selection of tabos for $2 or $3.

A tabo is a small concession but I'd let her know in no uncertain terms that she will NOT be getting a carabao to ride around town. :bonk:

Part pooper you have to embrace the culture don`t you know!

My two fill a bucket with water from the shower heater and then use the tabo.

The only problem is having a dry floor (with a bath mat) in our western style bathroom (CR).  Won't it take a great deal of care to keep the floor dry and sanitary whilst cleaning poop holes with a tabo?

You obviously do not know how to use one!  :hystery:

I'll follow Tim's lead and direct you to a Dollar store.  Everything is 52 pesos!  :dance:

My wife does not get water on the floor with a tabo. (At home we use a bum gun, though.) But when family visits... the floor is soaked, the walls are wet, water is dripping off the ceiling... I would hate to see what they are doing.  Must be throwing the water up in the air and dancing around trying to get wet.  :tiphat:

A water hose with a trigger gun on the end for washing your bum, common in the middle east and parts of asia.

I'm quite happy using one instead of paper but I still don't like tabos.

Sometimes called a bidet (although technically that term should be used to mean the in toilet type water sprays).

Don, you're absolutely right!  I used a bum gun at home and tp at SM... but maybe it's not too late to teach an old dog new tricks?.... but I think that I'll wait until my eventual visit back to the Philippines for that lesson :wink:
