Oh, I loved my Mandi in Indonesia!PNGMK wrote:Don't forget the trend backwards towards "Kamar Mandi" style baths. You have a build in water cistern (200 L capacity) with a small handled bucked. You stand in the wet area and splash it all over you. Sounds horrible but actually is a highly conservative way to use water and is extremely refreshing in hot climates, (the water cools in the cistern).
(It was fun, but also needed because of frequent water mains outage.)
I've never seen one in Singapore, but my in-laws told about big ceramic jars (similar to the still ubiquitous dragon pots for plants) used in the same manner in the past.
