Accessible Restroom

[Restroom Test] at MRT Rama 9 Station

13 August 2020 I did a restroom test at MRT Rama 9 subway station, and found some concerns that I had to address to the general public as the followings: 1. The accessible restroom has only 1 unit while the typical restroom has so many. 2. The typical restroom is easy to get access, people just walk into it. 3. Previously, the accessible restroom is often misused by ineligible people. So now it’s always locked, making the most affected person belongs to the PWDs. 4. PWDs is like everyone. They are human with flesh and blood, and must poo when …

My assessment over a brand-new accessible toilet at a 5-star hotel at Langsuan area, Bangkok.🙄🙄🙄

[POLL] An accessible toilet at a brand-new luxury boutique hotel at Langsuan

Our friend sent us this image, shot at a brand-new luxury boutique hotel at Langsuan area of Bangkok, showing a brand-new accessible toilet with nice decor and he said… “Wow, this is great. What a lovely toilet. Everyone in need can use it. Thank you hotel!” This might be the first reaction from many of you. The toilet is great, and nothing is wrong with that. Yet from my point of view as a PWDs, a real user, I’m afraid to say that this good-looking toilet still holds some “serious flaws” that could prevent entirely those in need from using …

Makro join #THEONE team and upgrading its accessible facilities for more inclusive, safety, and cleanliness.

25th of June, I went to participate in a meeting with the management team of Makro (Siam Makro). My role in this context acted like an advisor building understanding, providing information, and suggesting related issues as a whole.   My guideline was to widen the perspective to include all groups of people, not just for PWDs, to provide equality and to all so that everyone is happy.   We wish that they will set a new standard for construction and make proper service management after work. We’re pleased to be part of the team and willing to give more of …

[90-day Timeline] Counting down for all Makro 90 branches to be fully accessible

I did make a count down since I made a field survey days ago. By far, I yet received no contact from them.

Constructing correctly, according to the law, is just a minimum requirement. If they can make it beyond the minimum standard, the better. …
