Part and parcel of living in Hong Kong is the slew of weekend to-do tasks that never seem to get done. From hanging that picture that’s been taking up floor space for months, to finally changing that flickering light bulb in the kitchen, you’re guaranteed to have an odd job or two that needs doing. And if—like us—you’ve been collecting them for quite some time, it can be well worth hiring a handyman.
