    seattleite, we've used rent-a-mum, too, and been happy with the service.

    If you are staying in a hotel for the first month, you'll most likely find the hotel has a babysitting service. Do you know which hotel it will be? If so, you could check the details on their website.

    Then, after you move to HK, post a note on your apartment block's notice-board (if there is one) and you might find uni students responding (or other people's helpers - which, yes, is illegal, but it's up to you and that helper to accept the risk.)

    Good luck!

    Another option is to post an ad stating that you are looking for legal part time help. There are many who have dependents visas or permanent residency who are willing to do part-time work. My cousin posted an ad on gumtree and that's how she found a legal part-time helper.
