Hi Rudy. I read your comments. Apologies for our homes' CR being the worst you experienced. We have disabled the toilet flush and use buckets instead in order to minimize water consumption. Water is a scarce resource and a tank of delivered water costs Php 1,000. Sadly our town has yet to have a water district that may ensure equitable access to water for all. As to the toilet seat, we intend to replace it when we next go to the city-the small hardware here does not have these as well as other items readily available in cities. My foster child Aiko informed me that you picked the room upstairs with the shared CR instead of the room with its modest CR that you have reserved. Had your wife informed me of your concerns I would have refunded your second night stay. She however said you had to travel to Manila for urgent matters and that I need not refund. Your comments are noted and, given time and resource availability, we shall improve our modest home. Despite this experience at our home, I sincerely hope that you still enjoyed the rest of your stay in Sagada.
