"Nothing to lose but your chains"

One thing about our trip that I noticed - in Australia, it appears that the concept of the chain for the sink or basin plug doesn't exist.

It may well be that this is down to small sample size (only three different places), but I don't think I've previously encountered the plug with no chain attached (except for wear and tear cases). The resulting inability to lift the plug from a very hot sink is inconvenient, and the comparative difficulty in finding the plug in the first place (in Melbourne, I couldn't find the kitchen one, and borrowed the bathroom one for a day or two) would seem to outweigh the added simplicity of leaving the chain out.
