To the left of where Ipah lived was a public bathroom with toilet and shower amenities. It wasn't free. A small fee was charged depending on what you wanted to do, but the bathroom was always clean because the owner attended to it regularly throughout the day. People in this block of flats and units without inhouse water bought their water from the public bathroom. Ipah was one of these people, buying water everyday with which to shower and cook. Notice anything different about the word 'toilet'?
