Despite our city being so amazingly convenient, there are always those moments – think 4:15pm on a Friday in Central – when you could use a little bit of extra help to get things done. Here to make your life a little easier and a little more fun, are our eight favourite new services in the city.

Go Go Van
Whether you’re planning a sparkling soiree and need an extra pair of hands to help you get the champagne and flowers on site or just need someone to wait outside IKEA and help you get your new shoe closet home in one piece, new instant van booking app Go Go Van will help you to find the ideal vehicle and driver to get the job done.
Although Martinizing has been our all time favourite dry cleaner in HK for the past decade, we’re tempted to give HK’s newest wash and dry-clean app Washie a try. You set the pick up and delivery time and place, and they pick up your dirty duds and return them washed and folded or sparklingly dry-cleaned in record time. Choose to fill a whole laundry bag for just HK$99 or select from a list of various clothing and household items to launder or dry-clean at reasonable pre-set prices.
Just remembered it’s your dear friend’s birthday? Going to a special dinner party and want to wow the host? Send a bouquet of blooms from BYDEAU, a new online flower shop that delivers fresh, perfectly arranged petals on demand, complete with designer ribbons and a personalized gift card.
Hailing from London, the city’s newest restaurant delivery app features foodie favourites like Posto Pubblico, Stone Nullah Tavern, Sohofama, and Grassroots Pantry and promises your fresh from the oven dinner will be on your doorstep in 32 minutes or less!
From the creators of longtime DSTS favourite Secret Ingredient comes another amazing concept — NOSH — super fresh, super healthy meals delivered straight to your desk or door within one hour. Each chef-prepared dish lists the number of calories (always under 550), carbs and protein and is priced around HK$100. Plus, choose to add on drinks and sides, or share with a friend to make it even more cost efficient.
