Went to homedepot to see if they have additional. There was none. I asked store associates about these tiles and got informed that they seldom stock as demand is not that high and explained the reason which is pretty much in line with what folks posted here: those are pretty cheap item and not known for its reliability, tend to peel off. For my case, may be I will complete it and see how long it last and if it starts falling off, I will think about something better.

Not that I'm encouraging you with this, but did you check online to see if they can be ordered from somewhere (not necessarily HD)?

i actually ordered online 6 of them with x6 in package. It was heavily discounted. However I had to return 3 of them as corners were crumbled and one of them flat out has already some liquid damage and was already peeled off in package.

yes that particular square one

actually got a challenge question here. If water penetrates through the tile and grout which is a great concertn, would not be easily penetrating through other potential places like like through shower and tub linings those does not looks water/moisture proof either. Also there are other potential moiseture penetrating places like when I replaced the bathroom light there were big holes i in the wall too.

Liner are supposed to be water proof but grout has never been claimed to be waterproof.
I hope the light you are talking about is not subject to water like in the shower. Even the light in the ceiling over a shower must be moisture proof or shower rated. Any hole in wet area like bathroom should be repaired and sealed with paint as raw drywall is food for mold.

Consider this whole project a temporary fix. Watch those areas for signs of trouble and prepare yourself to do it properly the next time. I suspect that it won't be long. In the meantime, go tile shopping

I have seen this used back in the 60s over plywood and it stude up quite well, for a few years. The problem here is where they overlap you stck them together and the uneven backing with tile and grout may add problems.
