Jumble Stories from Thai food festival in Cochin - Puzzle with toilet symbol
Friends and parties, they were the things to do this week and I could not write or read the blogs. I really miss the posts from the bloggers that I read daily. Biga and I were alone in the house this week due to Jk’s meeting in Mumbai. We decided to watch movies, eat food and enjoy. I was reading the newspaper; sorry I would like to correct my sentence, I was watching pictures in the newspaper when my attention went on an advertisement from Thailand food festival (Reading is a hard job for me and I don’t do it unless it is interesting). I discussed it with Biga and we decided to try a dinner at Thailand food festival in Hotel Renaissance Cochin.
A question asked by my fellow colleague was why I was going to eat Thai food. I think a person should try everything in his life (here I am not supporting the fellow drinkers who give me this reason. I would say try everything that is not harmful to your body). My theory says to eat different recipes each time and ensure whether you need to have it again in future.
We reached the hotel and the first question asked to the waiter was about the toilet. We washed our hands, face and went inside the restaurant. There was a long menu of Thai foods. We ordered Tom Yum Soup, Seafood cartho, Yong chong rice and Wok Tossed roasted pork. We started with the starter-soup and chips. It took 60 minutes for the items to be arranged on our table. We had the food and Biga went to wash his hands. I ordered to bring the bill. The waiter placed the slip and I was not at all astonished to see the amount. At last the food was good and the hotel properly maintained.
I decided to wash my hands on the arrival of Biga. I went straight to the toilet and opened the door. I could see a mirror in the front. I admired myself and walked in a heroic style towards it. I saw a door opening nearby and as always I turned to see the business man coming out from it; may be someone I know. Hotel renaissance is a posh hotel with businessmen and bureaucrats visiting it daily. I placed my eyes on the figure coming out from the toilet and returned it in a second with at most astonishment. The figure was a lady dressed in red salvar kameez. For 5 seconds I could not think or utter anything.
I turned at the lady with wide eyes wondering why she is in my toilet. She walked out cool opening the exit door. I thought the lady has entered inside the hotel for mistake. I followed her out of the toilet and confirmed the board. It was written Queen. Soon a tube light turned on in my mind and I was able to recognize that I was the one who made a mistake. I jumped towards the door next to the Queen written as King. I washed my face and returned to normal senses. I could not believe that I made such a mistake. I asked Biga to rush out of the hotel as I was completely shy and could not face the lady again.
I discussed this incident today with Mahesh and he told me about a similar event that happened with his friend who gets down at Amsterdam airport. The man landed on Amsterdam airport and thought to visit the toilet to refresh himself. He entered the door and found the room was dark. He went inside and then ran with his life. The women inside were screaming and cursing him. Due to people following different languages and from different countries visited the airport, there were signs used on the doors that the man could not follow.
There was an arrow symbol on circle for woman's toilet and a plus symbol on circle for man's toilet.
Signs and symbols are always a problem for the people who do not follow them. Toilet symbols will be the important things I will take care in future. Even if I do not check the menu I will make sure I check the toilets physical locations.
