    I come every year to the Macau Grand Prix. At the Lisboa Bend grandstand there was no soap in the female toilets on Saturday. And it was the same on Sunday. This is a serious health risk.

    I am a Hong Kong registered doctor. I spoke to cleaning ladies who laughed and shook their heads. I spoke to the Red Cross desk. I spoke to the restaurateurs on the food stalls who said it has been like this for two years and they had complained. The policeman said it wasn’t a crime. And the organisers said it was a problem of the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (and that they didn’t work on a Sunday).

    Perhaps by highlighting this the municipal services will provide locals and tourists with soap in public facilities (as this is normal in Hong Kong, so why not in Macau?).
