Squandering resources

I refer to the Hong Kong and Yaumatei Ferry Company's donation of free ferry trips for life to Hong Kong Olympic gold winner Lee Lai-shan.

While not wanting to take anything away from Lee, I am surprised the ferry company is in a position to make this donation considering it is always complaining about lack of funds. Perhaps it could better use this money upgrading the toilet facilities on the antiquated ferries.

Besides, San San could probably commute between Cheung Chau and Central using her windsurfer in half the time it would take by ferry.
