曬衣架 = saai yi ga: outdoor clothes drying rack

Due to densely-packed living quarters, it's perhaps not surprising that estate residents sometimes use street furniture as a washing-line (I do always hope they've wiped the railings down first).

This is actually not allowed, with signs in parks and other public spaces reminding the public: no clothes drying.  An enterprising individual has therefore found the perfect spot to advertise this home clothes drying system.

Local authorities threatening to remove your illegally-hung laundry? Just call the number.

What your apartment's washing line may look like.
