About Kaki Bukit
Kaki Bukit is an industrial area located in Bedok in the East Region of Singapore. It is home to many high-tech industrial companies and warehouses. There used to be a prison complex called Kaki Bukit Centre, which was converted to a prison school in 2000, however it has since moved to Tanah Merah. On the south of Kaki Bukit is Jalan Tenaga and Jalan Damai neighbourhoods of Bedok Reservoir Road. Redevelopments are in the pipeline for Kaki Bukit beyond 2030 when Paya Lebar Airbase located just north of the estate relocates to Changi. Not only would land be freed up for use but building height restrictions, that are currently in place for safety reasons because the estate is directly aligned with the airbase runway, would also be lifted. Kaki Bukit is classified by Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) as a subzone under the planning area of Bedok, its boundaries differ from the constituency boundaries used by the Singapore Parliament.
The history of Kaki Bukit can be traced since the 1960s as an extension of the Jalan Eunos Malay Settlement. The name, Kaki Bukit translates to "Foothill" from Malay as the area was an upland area. Back then, it was filled with kampung houses and roads baring Malay names. Most of its residents were resettled from Kampong Glam and Bugis regions.
By the 1980s, the Jalan Eunos Malay Settlement had been degazetted. The kampung houses were brought down, its residents compensated with newly built HDB flats in present-day Bedok Reservoir. Most of the old roads in the area were then removed and new roads running from Bedok Reservoir were built. The hilly incline of Kaki Bukit was also flattened for land reclamation of the East Coast area.
There are limited amenities in Kaki Bukit with Kaki Bukit Amenity Centre and Kaki Bukit Recreation Centre providing several food options. There are more amenities located in the nearby Bedok Reservoir or Eunos estates. There are various dormitories located in the area too, to house foreign workers working nearby.
So what is a Handyman?
A handyman, also known as a handyperson or handyworker, is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks".
The services that a handyman can provide vary widely, and so do the rates for such services. The current market and the personal preferences of the handyman affect both of these greatly. Basically, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades, an individual who is skilled at performing various tasks. Handymen usually take on jobs like minor home repairs and other construction tasks.
How big or small these tasks are, along with how experienced the handyman is will be what determines the rate that you will be paying. Some handymen will estimate how long a job will take and base their rate off that, or will offer a flat rate for the whole job. Paying a flat rate can be advantageous for you if your handyman gives you an honest estimate of how long the job takes.
The flat rate also protects you from complications that may arise that make the job take longer than expected.
