Squirt Attack

As I finished my meal at Beit al Mandy in Sharjah I went to the bathroom to wash my hands. All of a sudden I heard a squirting noise and felt something moist smelling good. It scared the hell out of me seeing as I was alone and had no idea where that came from!

As I looked up I noticed this little device on the wall. Being from Sweden where we do not have what seems to be a timed room refreshener, timed to squirt every 20 minutes, I felt like a country girl arriving in the city for the first time! Well you learn something new everyday, ey?

I've never seen one in Dubai. But I imagine these might fall foul of health and safety laws in Europe, eg if someone was allergic to it. I can imagine a whole load of McLawsuits ;)

I wonder if you can buy them for personal use though? I would love a rose scented one in my flat.

D Reb I an serious, I have never seen an automated one before lol

Radha, well I reckon they belong in the toilets! lol

SD, I never saw them in Dubai either just in Sharjah. I thikn you're right, they are so strict here about scents and allergy so it is probably forbidden.
Yeah one at home wouldn't be too bad though I would want a jasmin flavoured one!

Salaam Imaan! And many more to come :) enjoy tjejen!

Secretdubai : There's lots around since at least 2 years. and yes you can buy them ..... we have one our office ...shopping malls use vanilla scented ones- seemingly vanilla makes people want to pamper themselves.

Shakespearah: Was driving through sharjah and came across bait al mandy...couldn't help smiling thinking about your earlier post.
