My house has been breaking down in bits and pieces recently. So the bulbs has been going off one by one. I'm not usually a very technical person (admittedly i was a technician in the Singapore Army), but the wires and stuff usually escapes me.
Hired a contractor to remove the mould and repainted the toilet ceiling. (it was really in a disastrous condition, like those dilapidated haunted house), so when the toilet lights went kaput, i got the handyman to do everything at 1 go. That costed me $280.
The bulbs in my ceiling was off too, and lazy me also asked for the price. Seems like changing the bulb cost me $30. I asked how it was to be done, and seems simple enough. I got myself a bulb at $4.60, and saved myself the labour cost and mark-up of the rest.
Moral of the story - get enough life skills to handle minor repairs in the house.
NB: I had a plumber come once to unchoke my toilet. THAT set me back by $120. Since then, i got a plunger and been a part time plumber for my house ever since.
