A report from New Straits Times says that 61% out of the 10K public toilet in Malaysia are a disgrace. Only a miserable 3% achieved 5-star ratings, while 10% are too terrible to get even 1-star. Even our Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir commented that he avoids entering the public toilet. The dirty and foul-smelling environment is an embarrassment to everyone. Some of the common sights such as shoes marks heavily stained on the toilet seats, sanitary pads thrown on top of the sanitary bin instead of inside the bin or the hysteric bloody mess on the floor. Eventually public washrooms are labelled as unclean and unhygienic in Malaysia.
