I spotted this sign at Shanghai Expo

It stands by a ceramic fountain with little water inside.

This time in China, I saw many places with the 温馨提示 Warm prompt signs. In the public bathrooms, there were plenty of wenxin tishi signs even when there weren’t any bathroom tissues installed in each booth. Yup, the tissue was located centrally in one location. Nevertheless, the signs indeed warmed my heart. China is trying hard to improve its software.
