    Story Overview

    ***WARNING***
    The overview tells you the story right to the very end, so if you don't wanna know what happens, don't read the last paragraph!
    *************

    In the 61st year of the reign of Kangxi in the Qing dynasty, the country was run well with the officials in the court and the martials in the battlefield, historically, this period was known as the Great Times of Kangxi , but due to the large number of princes all fighting for the throne, there came a nervous time when it was time to choose an heir. Kangxi’s fourth son Yinzhing (later Emperor Yongzheng), with his determined nature and forceful approach, together with his knowledge of the control of power won through in the fight for the throne and ascended to the throne in the 61st year of Kangxi’s reign, the next year (1723 AD) was then named after his own reign and became the first year of Yongzheng: after the ascension, he worked and planned for the future and made the Qing dynasty continue to flourish and run into another prosperous era.

    In the 13th year of Yongzheng, the 8th Earl plotted a coup against the government with the aim of forcing Yongzheng to hand over his reign, but Yongzheng used his intelligence to overcome the evil plans and led himself and his realm out of trouble: except that Han maiden Lui Sei Leung could not put aside the hatred of the end of the Han rule and vowed to rid the Qing and reinstate the Ming dynasty, but in her plan to murder Yongzheng, there was a change in the wind and clouds and the two are plunged into darkness, as changes take place in time and space, they are sent into the future and modern day Hong Kong.

    Yongzheng and Leung are sent from the darkness into the scene of a traffic accident and the two are injured and taken to hospital. After they awaken, they are shocked and frightened by their surroundings and are stunned. By a great coincidence, Yongzheng takes the place of mainland immigrant Lee Dai Ha and is taken home by Ha’s uncle Bo Fei; on the other hand, Leung’s martial art skill is spotted by a martial arts master, who helps her to get an ID card and accepts her into the troupe. Later, the troupe arrives in Hong Kong to do a display and Leung meets again with Yongzheng, confirming with him that due to a change in time and space, they had been brought to the modern day, when he realises that he cannot return to the Qing dynasty, he is happy to stay as Ha’s identity and make a life for himself in Hong Kong.

    Ha works hard and learns to become a modern person. He manages to find himself entering the enterprise of Shum Siu Hong as a junior worker and he finds that although times have changed, people’s hearts as just the same and that Hong’s sons and daughters are all fighting for the inheritance of the enterprise and plotting against each other, this makes him think of his own experiences when he was fighting with his brothers for the throne, Hong must also deal with affairs between his three wives and cannot enjoy his family life. Ha sympathises with Hong because of his experiences and through this they gradually develop a very intriguing father-son relationship.

    After leaving the martial arts troupe, Leung still holds onto her ambition of murdering Ha to fulfil her wish, but she finds herself out on the streets and has a hard time, but she still holds onto her bold and honourable values. By chance, she meets with Hong who is being attacked and she steps out to help him and rescues him, although she runs away after this because she is chasing after Ha, in Hong’s heart she is his saviour. Ha tries to enforce to Leung the reality that they cannot return to the Qing dynasty and even if she kills him, this is of no use to anyone, Leung can only face up to the truth and put aside her differences with Ha. By another stroke of fate, Leung meets up with Ha again and he thinks that she has been hurt during her rescue of him, he decides to employ her as his personal bodyguard.

    On the other hand, Ha uses his cunning to pave his way up the employment ladder and becomes the right hand man to Hong’s third son Shum Yat Lai, helping him to create some successes in the business, however Ha gradually learns of Lai’s own agenda and feels he is not a good master, and he finds that Hong’s fourth daughter Shum Yat Ngoi is genuine and is good to her staff and totally committed to the company, so he decides to help her instead, and pushes her towards the route of becoming heir to the realm of the business enterprise. Leung and Ha share so many experiences and Leung learns to get to know Ha again and finds that he is not as ruthless as is recorded in the history books, Ha is touched by Leung’s innocent devotion as the two start to develop affections for each other. Through the guidance of Ha, Ngoi’s performance in the business catches Hong’s attentions and Ngoi had early on succumbed to Ha’s intelligence and fallen in love with him. Leung feels that through her work, protecting Hong, she is having to visit the high class social venues and occasions and feels this is in conflict with her own personality, moreover she is rumoured as Hong’s fourth wife, in protest for her innocence, Leung resigns. At this time, Hong must prepare for his retirement and places a lot of responsibility onto Ha, with the aim of making him son-in-law and future heir. Hong asks Ha to enter the bargain and promises him that as soon as he marries Ngoi, the inheritance of the company will fall into their hands, but after all they have been through, Ha realises that Leung is the one whom he really loves. At the end, after much thought and consideration by Ha, he decides to leave Hong’s company and the arena of fame and fortune, returning to the basic life and pursuing a new life of real meaning with Leung.

The 8th Earl pretends to be afflicted with a virus and refuses to supervise this, Yongzheng sees through his motives. An emergency in the North West battlefield arises and Yongzheng asks the 14th Earl to send troops to aid the armies, but is refused. Meanwhile, the 8th and 14th Earl plot against him to try and force him out of the palace, but luckily Yongzheng foils their evil plans and overcomes the danger. Yongzheng heads south to see for himself the floods and he meets with a maiden Lui Sei Leung who is being forced to become a prostitute, he steps in and helps her out.

Meanwhile, Yongzheng wakes to hear that the Qing dynasty has been destroyed and cannot believe this. Yongzheng finds that he has a set of documents beside him belonging to Lee Dai Ha and when Dai Ha’s uncle Bo Fei arrives to collect him and take him to Hong Kong, then he decides to go along with it and leave with him. Yongzheng has never seen motor cars, mobile phones etc and finds it all rather frightening, yet curious. He arrives at Bo Fei’s house and doesn’t know whether he has assumed Dai Ha’s body or has reincarnated. Sei Leung sneaks out of her hospital room and enters a lift (elevator), but is frightened to death by it. Outside the hospital. She meets Heung Yeung and uses her martial art flying technique to run away, in the tree, she finds Yongzheng’s handkerchief and is relieved.


    What is Sei Leung's relationship to the rebels?

    Episode 2 - Sei Leung is mistaken as a "Northern Lady"

    When Heung Yeung hears Leung refer to herself as Lui Sei Leung and that she wants to murder Yongzheng, he mocks her, but then offers to accept her into his martial arts troupe. It turns out that Yeung suspects Leung is suffering from dementia and is confused, but he hopes that she can help to promote the name of his troupe. Yongzheng helps out at Fei’s noodle shop and Shum Yat Ngoi and her colleague Szeto Yuk Ming arrive to eat there, Yongzheng helps her to chase away the ruffian Monkey and return her mobile phone, Ngoi is very grateful. Fei’s son in law Ko King is constantly scolded and beaten by his wife Bo Chu, but dare not retaliate, Yongzheng finds this hard to understand. Yongzheng and King plan an act together and trick Lai Pei Wah to return the money that he owes King.

    Yeung’s troupe arrives in Hong Kong on a touring show and King takes Yongzheng to go and watch them. When Yongzheng sees Leung on the stage, he is very pleased and calls out to her, when Leung sees Yongzheng, then without a word, she aims her sword towards the audience stand, frightening Yongzheng and the other people in the audience who flee instantly. Yongzheng hides in the lift and Leung forces herself to follow him in. Yongzheng asks her why she is so intent on killing him, even after they have both been sent into the future, then he takes his opportunity to run out of the lift, caught inside the lift alone, Leung is petrified. Yeung scolds Leung for bringing shame on the troupe and Leung realises he is using her and leaves angrily. Yongzheng resents the fact that as a Qing Emperor he has to wash clothes, clean the toilet and write out tickets for people and he becomes restless.

    Leung is left out on the streets and asks a man where she can find an inn. The man mistakes her for a “Northern Lady” (prostitute) and takes her to a motel room, but he is beaten to a pulp by Leung. As Leung is on the brink of starvation, she meets with a pregnant woman who is asking her to borrow money, without a thought, she asks everyone around her to borrow money, but when she meets with Shum Yat Lai, she realises she has been tricked by the woman. When Lai offers her $100, she refuses this and asks only for his sandwich, she says that she will repay his great kindness in offering his meal, Lai finds this rather amusing. Yongzheng decides to use the identity of Lee Dai Ha to go and apply for a job as an office assistant.


    You are Lui Sei Leung? So sorry not to have realised, but it is now the year 2002!

    Yongzheng you worthless king, no matter what time period we are in, I will still kill you.

    Episode 3 - Dai Ha finds his first job

    Dai Ha goes to see the personnel manager Tina Shum at “Siu Hong Construction Materials” and she scorns him, saying he is old, has little educational qualifications and can’t speak English, so she turns him down. Ha accidentally comes across the big boss Shum Siu Hong who is looking over some drafts, Siu Hong praises him, saying that he has a good writing ability and decides to give him the job of office assistant, much to Tina’s disgust. Ngoi is angry at her elder brother Yat Chung for pulling down a main wall in the showroom, resulting in it not opening on time, Chung is rather worried. Hong asks about the wall incident and Chung pushes all the blame onto Ngoi, making her furious. Lai comforts Ngoi, saying that he thinks this was Tina’s idea. On Ha’s first day at work, Ngoi asks him to change the water bottle, but Ha doesn’t know how to go about this. Sei Leung puts on a display in the streets, but when she asks for tips, her audience disperses, then she notices Lai and becomes very embarrassed. Lai helps her to pick up Yongzheng’s picture and is a little surprised, Leung asks him whether he has seen the person in the picture, Lai doesn’t say anything and leaves, but Leung uses her flying skills to follow him to the showroom.

    Siu Hong’s first wife Kwok Yan Tai and second wife Yiu Yim Fun are arguing about whether to hang an impressionist or landscape picture in the boardroom, Ha finds this all hard to bear. Leung hides in the back staircase of the showroom to wait for Lai to appear, but because she is hungry, she steals some food to eat, third wife Yiu Yim Fong sees this and thinking she is an illegal immigrant, she gives Leung $200, Leung is very grateful. Bo On wants to open a shop selling cheap stationery, Ha finds out that he will be co-operating with Monkey and warns him to think about it, but is told to mind his own business. Lorry driver Cheung Chung Wai accidentally makes Tina’s shoes dirty and she bears a grudge against him and when she finds out that Wai has been caught for drunk driving, she uses this as an excuse to fire him. Wai pleads innocence, Ha finds out that Lai goes to beg Chung and the others to show mercy for him and realises that this is not right and only one person can help him.


    Mr Lee, we are employing an office assistant, not an executive. What good is your knowledge of our company's products?

    Big brother is so timid - this idea must have been that of sister-in-law. It makes me so mad!

    On the day of the grand opening of the showroom, Tai sees that Fan is dragging Lai over to show off with the journalists and is being photographed and interviewed, she immediately does the same with Chung and Tina, Fong is annoyed. Leung sees that the showroom is bustling with people and as she looks around, she is pleased to see Lai. Lai explains that he just feels that the person in her picture looks very like Dai Ha and learning that Ha has just left, Leung chases out after him. Just as Hong gets off the car to enter the showroom, Wai suddenly appears and begs Hong to do him justice and accidentally cuts Hong with a small penknife, just at this time Leung who has just come downstairs sees the situation and leaps forward to rescue him. After stopping Wai, she sees Ha across the road and uses her jumping skills to chase him. A little stone flies up and hits one of Leung’s pressure points, in pain she falls down a hill and faints. Ha thinks about what has happened and returns to the hill where he finds her and carries her home.

    Ha claims that Leung is from his village and was unwell because she is not used to the environment, Fei generously accepts her and offers her a place to stay in Chu’s home, Ha is very grateful. Leung awakes to find her hands have been tied and her voice is grainy and struggles as she still wants to murder Ha. Leung sees from many TV shows that the Qing dynasty has ended and she cannot believe this, Ha explains that when they were swept away by the swirling tide, this was the time that the history books record his death, now they can only live in this time period, Leung is devastated when she hears this.

    Hong wants to thank Leung so Lai asks Ha for her news, Ha pretends that he doesn’t know her. Ha sees that Ngoi and Yuk Ming are very close and thinks they are homosexuals, Ngoi scolds him for talking nonsense. Leung is mugged by thieves, but after she has beaten up the thieves, she looks pale as a ghost, Ha is puzzled by this, Leung angrily explains that her martial arts skills have been lost and she is a useless person, then she rushes to the harbour railings with a wish to commit suicide, Ha does his best to pull her down.


    I didn't mean to hurt Mr Shum, please don't arrest me!

    Lui Sei Leung, we aren't in the Qing Dynasty any more, why do you still have to try and kill me?

    Episode 5 - Yat Lai finds out about Yat Chung's external affairs

    Hong chases Dai Wong about the buyout project of “Hin Tat Tower”, Wong points out that some of the residents have still not agreed to it. Ha overhears Hong and Mr Ma, the lawyer discussing the project and starts to talk metaphorically about braising beef, when Hong hears this, he has a thought. Hong suddenly instructs Chung to stop the buyout project, saying he will renovate the lots he has bought and rent them out again, Chung doesn’t get the reason for this. Chu sees that Leung has a very stiff back and thinks that she is pregnant, Leung who is able to lip read scolds her for talking nonsense, pointing out the mark of celibacy on her arm, everyone finds this hilarious.

    Hong asks for progress on the renting out of Hin Tat, Chung points out that the results are good and there are only three remaining owners who are not willing to sell, Hong is pleased about this. Ha finds out by accident that Chung has been having dealings with Ma, and through seeking Leung’s help with the lip reading, they finds out that these three remaining apartments belong to Chung. Ha observes Lai and concludes he is worth nurturing, so he offers to let him into a great secret, Lai is puzzled yet curious. Ngoi finds out that the new kitchen units which have been bought in by Yat Hau are letting off a poisonous substance, Chung doesn’t really want to know, but Tina thinks this will be a good chance to move up in stature. Hau is angry that Chung is putting him down in front of Hong to gain favour and the brothers fall out. Hong hears that Ngoi has gone out to celebrate her birthday with her friends and his expression sinks, Fong knows that he has some misunderstanding with Ngoi and is very upset.

    Ngoi returns home and together with Fong, they celebrate her birthday with her late twin brother Yat Shun who had died, Fong doesn’t forget to put a good word in for Hong. Fei teaches Leung how to make noodles, Leung takes it all on very quickly to Fei’s surprise. Lai finally finds out that the Chung is the owner of the remaining three units and Ha reckons he needs to be taught a lesson, but Lai is hesitant about this. Lai takes Ha home, at this time Leung is practicing her wall climbing technique, but when Ha calls out to her, she loses her concentration and falls into some water, Leung is furious but Lai is pleased to see Leung again.


    If you braise beef quickly, it will be tough and inedible, you have to take your time over it and add a little rock sugar, then it will be very good!

    Look! My mark of celibacy is still there.. how would I be having Ha's baby?

    Episode 6 - Dai Ha gets promoted and Sei Leung becomes a bodyguard

    Leung goes with Lai to the hospital to visit Hong and when she sees the lift (elevator) she is very concerned, Lai follows her to take the stairs and he breaks into a sweat. Hong hands over the total control of the buyout of Hin Tat Tower to Chung to look after, Hau is very annoyed. As soon as Hong sees Leung, he says he must repay her, Leung says her wish is to return to the martial arts troupe and gain recognition for her country, when Hong and Lai hear this, they reach an agreement. Sei Leung happily returns to the troupe, but when Yeung finds out that she has lost all her internal energy, he refuses to let her return and Leung is upset and disappointed. Hong employs her as his personal bodyguard, Leung asks him what consignment she must protect, causing some laughs with Hong. Hau accidentally received Lai's documents and finds the evidence that Chung has been "placing nails" (ie causing problems) with Hin Tat Tower and discloses him. Hong angrily reprimands Chung for eating from the inside but grabbing from the outside, telling him to play no more part in the real estate development affairs, Hau is pleased by this. Lai feels guilty for his carelessness, Ha points out that Hau is not made for success and encourages him to carry on persevering, Lai asks him to be his own personal assistant.

    Leung asks Ha how to overcome her fear of taking lifts, Ha asks her back what talents she has. Leung dresses up as Chun Li and surprises Hong. When the lift door shuts, she turns pale and she mutters to herself and can't stop trembling, Hong is very worried. Ha wears a suit to work and suggests that they should quickly sell off their remaining stock to create space in the warehouse and also raise some cash for the company, Lai is worried that Chung will not be happy about this. Hong agrees with Lai's quick sale suggestion, Ngoi offers to help out and Hong agrees hesitantly. Leung feels that people at the office do not like her, King points out that this because she speaks her mind and upsets many people, he teaches her to call everyone "handsome boy" or "pretty girl", Leung seems to understand but doesn't. Wong sees that Hau is gaining in power and distances himself from Chung to make contact with him, Hau enjoys this and accepts.


    Mr Shum, what consignment do you want me to protect? And where do you want me to take it?

    If Elder Brother has no honour, then I will hold none for him, I will tell father about him.

    Episode 7 - Siu Hong gradually admires Yat Lai and Dai Ha

    The quick sale project achieves good results and Hong only praises Lai for his work, Ngoi is a little disappointed. Leung points out that Hong is being unfair to Ngoi and his expression sinks. Fan introduces Ngoi to some high class ladies to design their furnishings for them and brings some precious crystal taps for her to use as accessories. Bo On arrives at Hong’s company to borrow money from King and is not successful. Ngoi finds that the crystal taps have gone missing and is very worried, Ha takes it on board to find them for her. Ha goes to question On and he can only admit what he has done. On takes them to go and see Eagle to get the taps back and he asks for $80,000 – luckily, Ha has a plan to get them back.

    Tin Lung Developments and Sin Fung Construction both pan to build new apartments near to Siu Hong’s plot of land and Hong calls everyone together to discuss how to overcome this problem. Ha sees that King is reading the Fung Wan Comics and has a stroke of inspiration saying it is as hard to be good friends as it is to be enemies, just as he says this Hong walks past and hears him. Lai takes up Ha’s suggestion to cooperate with Tin Lung and work together against Sin Fung and this coincides with Hong’s idea and he showers them with praise. Tin Lung send over a representative Marco to discuss the details of the cooperation and Ngoi recognises Marco as her old school friend.

    Wong wants to be unruly towards Sei Leung, and he beats him up until he kneels and begs for mercy. Hong is worried because Tin Lung want to place the cooperation plan on hold, as he leaves the company he runs into a gunfight between the police and some criminals and a bullet flies towards him, Leung pushes him away just in time and she is injured. Hong and his family are grateful to Leung for saving Hong’s life and Tai invites her to their Wedding Anniversary Ball and lends her an outfit. Leung tries on the dress and Ha falls into fits of laughter because she has a T-shirt underneath her backless evening dress. Ngoi and Marco meet up and as he helps a rather drunk Ngoi out of the bar, he is photographed by a reporter.


    Mr Shum, I think you did wrong back there - the quick sale was all down to Ngoi, but you pretended not to notice that

    High IQ means you're a genius, High EQ means you have management ability - your brother in law me has neither, so I have nothing of use at all!!

    Episode 8 - Dai Ha helps Yat Lai to move up

    Under the careful attention of Ngoi, Leung dresses beautifully to attend Hong and Tai’s Coral Anniversary Ball, everyone is stunned including Ha and Lai. Leung practices her dance steps in the garden and when Ha sees this he tries to teach her, but Leung lays down a handkerchief on his shoulder and arm, causing him to laugh out loud. In the study, Hong points out the article in the magazline about Ngoi and Marco, giving the impression that she was trying to use her beauty to convince Tin Lung to co-operate with them, Ngoi insists that she has not lost face for the Shum family. Marco explains the situation to Hong and he realises that he has been wrong about Ngoi. She hides in the garden and cries and Ha steps up and passes her a handkerchief, he also points out that there is a problem of the heart between her and Hong and this has something to do with Shun. Ngoi feels that he has hit the problem exactly but tells him to mind his own business and stop causing problems.

    Ha accidentally finds out that the German stone which is distributed by Siu Hong is being faked in China and has a similar quality with a much lower price, he sees this as the key for Lai to leave the warehousing department, Lai is moved. In the meeting, Lai points out the advantages of the Chinese stone and Hong gives him two weeks to test the market. Chung, Hau and the others quickly get together to discuss their plans to stop Lai from gaining power. After a week, there are no sales for the mainland Chinese stone but there is a rise in the sales for the German stone, Lai is concerned about this, Ha explains that to do great things you will often meet with great problems and he should handle this calmly, Lai listens to his advice. With the help of Fei and Chu, Ha finds out that Chung has been using a plan to subsidise the cost of the stones and he presents a plan to Lai. Ha finds out that Leung has caught a cold and makes her hot lemon cola, Leung is touched. Hong slips suddenly and when Leung goes to help him up, their hands become locked together and a spying journalist takes a faraway shot of them. Tina finds out that Chung has been sleeping around and angrily beats him, this makes the employees smile discreetly. Ha finds out that Hong likes reading a manual about governing resources and warns him that he should not be unwary to those plotting against him.


    Sei Leung, how can you think they are laughing at you? They are praising you!

    No matter how hard you work, you will never earn the praise of Mr Shum, the reason for this must rest with the death of Shun.

    Episode 9 - Sei Leung unfortunately becomes the fourth wife!

    The stone from the mainland sells well and Hong is happy but he questions the reports on the first week’s sales, Chung and the others hearts begin to sink. Hong announces that Lai is to become the sales and retail department manager, Ha to become the deputy sales manager and Chung to be sent to the warehouse, Chung is not happy about this. Fan has a party to celebrate Lai’s promotion, Wah changes his tune again to side up to Ha. Everyone is playing the truth dice game and whenever Leung tells a lie, she is very nervous and with Ha seeing through this, she loses very badly, when Lai sees this, he steps in to help her out, much to her relief. Tai wants to put in a good word for her two sons, Hong reveals that she has been funding them to plot against Lai and tells her that an overcaring mother will result in bad children. Ha returns to work and a group of beautifully dolled up women run towards him, Ha pretends to frown at this, but he is really very flattered. Lai and the others sell the mainland stones hard to their first client Mr Cheung and he smoothly agrees to the deal, but states that the delivery must be on time.

    Leung sees everyone pointing at something and is curious, when she sees a magazine that indicates she is Hong’s fourth wife, her expression changes. Tina suspects that Lai has used Leung as a plot to move upward and together with Tai and the others they decide they must get rid of Leung and Ha. Leung sees a paparazzi photographer and wants to beat him up and teach him a lesson, Ha takes the film away and lets him go. Leung asks Ha to help her to clear her name, at first Ha shows that he doesn’t really care, but then he suggests a plan to say that if she shows that she has another partner then the gossip will cease. Lai offers to pretend to be Leung’s real boyfriend and Leung is pleased by this. Lai is openly seen to be leaving work with Leung and takes her to a French Restaurant and going out to see to watch the stars, Leung starts to develop an admiration for him. Ngoi and Ming need to go to an exposition in Milan and need to pass the inspection of the Shenzhen consignment to King and Wah. Ha tells King to ensure that the stone is within the quality standards so that they can produce the goods on time.


    Sei Leung, we are only playing dice - do you need to be so nervous?

    Dai Ha - you've arrived!

    Episode 10 - Ko King resigns out of guilt

    In Shenzhen, Wah drags King out to go and karaoke and puts drugs in his drink. King loses his senses after drinking it and the next days he regrets that he has been unfaithful to Chu. King hurriedly goes to inspect the goods and Wah laughs that time flies for him when he is having fun and says that he has already checked much of the goods on his behalf, King does not suspect anything. King returns to Hong Kong and seems preoccupied, Ha asks him what the matter is, King tells all and Ha feels uneasy. The two go to the warehouse to inspect the goods and find that 90% of it is below standard. On the other hand, Chung and the others celebrate that Lai will be doomed. Hong is horrified to find there is a problem with the stone and Chung takes the chance to put in a bad word, Ha thinks that the most important thing is to solve the problem to prevent the company’s reputation being affected. King does not want to cause trouble for Lai so he resigns with Tina. Ha, Ngoi and Leung find out and say that his is being too rash and that by resigning he is accepting responsibility. Chu finds out that King has been for an AIDS test and tricks him into telling the truth, when Chu finds out that he has been sleeping around, she angrily slaps him before she is dragged home by Ha.

    Ha sees that Wah is enthusiastically betting on the horses and is suspicious, unfortunately Hau gets in first and sacks Wah, Ha can only ask that King is reinstated. Chu kicks King out of the house and Ha can do nothing to help him. Mr Cheung realises that Lai cannot provide him with the goods on time and says that he will be ordering foreign goods from another supplier, Leung scolds him sternly for using the foreigners goods then Ha tells the truth directly as a sign of integrity, Mr Cheung agrees to give them five days and everyone is pleased. Ngoi and Ming brave the wind and rain to go and visit the building site and on the way their tyre bursts, as they change the tyre, they are attacked by an illegal immigrant and he assaults Ngoi, but she is saved by Ming. Ming is taken to hospital and Hong says that Ngoi is powermongering and stubborn, causing harm to other people, Ngoi can only face this accusation. On the anniversary of Shun’s death, Fong tells Ngoi to go along and pay her respects together, but she refuses.


    How can I be unfaithful to my wife?

    This time we have caused so much trouble for Lai - time for a drink!

    Episode 11 - Siu Hong and Yat Ngoi overcome their differences

    Leung escorts Hong and Fong to pay respects to Shun and realises that they had another son, Hong grits his teeth and says that it was Ngoi’s obstinacy which led to the death of Shun. Ha unexpectedly receives a CD-ROM which contains much of Hong’s newspaper cuttings and pictures and his thoughts lead him to go and find Hong. When Hong sees these cuttings and pictures, he is shocked. On the beach where Shun met his death, Ngoi has flashbacks of the incident and the tragedy and as she burns her diary, she tells Shun of the happy times she has been through, when Hong and Fing hear this, they are touched. Hong regrets thinking that Ngoi did not care about Shun’s death and therefore giving her undue pressure and the father and daughter finally overcome their differences. Ngoi thanks Ha and Leung for their help and changes her opinion on Ha. Leung sees a magazine on the news stand showing her, Hong and Lai on the cover, saying she has found two good partners, she is very angry and Ha comforts her saying that the innocent will come clean.

    King busily peels the ginger for the ginger-vinegar pot and makes Sweet Soup for Chu to rid her of the womb toxins, but Chu does not accept this and wants to try and remove her wedding ring, all are helpless. Tina and the others see that Hong’s attitude towards Ngoi has changed and has a different opinion on Ha and Leung, so they hurriedly change their plans. Fan hears that Lai is attracted to Leung and is very excited about this, Lai puts in some good words for Leung. Lai uses the excuse that he wants to make it clear to the press and he asks Leung out on a date, then he takes her to a video games arcade. Hong agrees to let Ngoi design the hotel-style interior furnishings to be use with the joint project with Tin Lung and she is overjoyed, but Hau points out that they have already employed the famous designer Kenneth Ma for this task, Hong suggests that they work together on the design. Lai feels that Ngoi’s stance will not be as strong as Kenneth and is afraid her ideas will be not be as good, Ha observes this and has a decision. Ha takes Ngoi to the Peak and takes her through a design thought process, Ngoi benefits greatly from this. Ngoi’s “Garden in the Sky” design is highly praised by Lai, King and the others but when Lai hears that it is Ha who has led her to her inspiration, his heart sinks. Chu is about to give birth but Fei and the others cannot find King. King rushes to the hospital and the first thing he asks whether the baby is a girl or a boy, Chu is hurt and angrily tells him to leave.



    I always thought you didn't care about Shun's death and gave you so much pressure, I never realised you hurt so deeply...

    You don't need knives or scissors to take off a ring - here, just use some oil!!

    Episode 12 - Yat Chung and Tina try to tempt Dai Ha

    Ha guesses that Lai received the call from Fei but did not pass the message onto King, making Chu’s misunderstanding even deeper, he is concerned that Lai is prepared to forsake other people for his own success and this is like the fake ally he had in the 8th Earl. Ha uses Kenneth’s designs to test Lai and he shows his other side. Chu and her daughter leave hospital and when she sees King at home, she sends him away, there is nothing anyone can do. Ha sees that Ngoi is very nervous about presenting her designs and he passes her a lucky charm from Tai Shan monastery, Ngoi feels a little better. Ngoi and Kenneth each present their own designs and although she loses to him, she still receives words of praise from Kenneth and she is very happy. Ngoi thanks Ha and returns the charm, then she finds out the reality about the charm (ie it isn’t really a charm after all – just a flyer) and is even more grateful to him.

    Ha sees Lai escorting Leung home tells her to look after herself, Leung angrily points out that he has no right to criticise her, Ha says that she seems to be falling in love with Lai, otherwise she wouldn’t be making dumplings for him, Leung feels uneasy. Leung sees that when Ha is discussing matters with Hong, he exudes a royal aura and this makes her heart beat faster. Chu sees that Leung is very troubled and guesses that she is having trouble choosing between Ha and Lai, she encourages Leung to develop her feelings for Lai, Leung finds Chu’s thoughts of divorce even before marriage very amusing.

    Tina thinks that Lai’s successes are all down to Ha and tells Chung to get him on their side. Ha boldly goes along to this meeting and Tina tempts him to change sides with many benefits, Ha refuses. Hau suggests that they should invest in Mainland real estate and take the company onto the stock market, Hong agrees and Lai feels the distaste. In front of all the secretaries, Tina says that Lai is dependent on Ha to move up and when Lai hears this, his expression drops. Ha feels there is something wrong with Lai and asks about him, Lai questions his decision after the meeting with Chung and Tina and Ha frowns when he hears this.


    I am afraid that Lai is a fake ally in the same way as the 8th Earl


    This is your lucky charm!!

    Episode 13 - Dai Ha and Yat Lai's relationship officially breaks down

    Lai suggests to Hong to buyout the Shing Sai Tile Factory, Hong agrees to think about this. Leung and Lai go and watch a Martial Arts Show and Leung pretends to be classy and goes hungry. Chu asks about Leung’s date, Leung says she doesn’t seem to have that thumping heart feeling. Chu has a first month celebration for her daughter and says that her daughter is to take her surname Bo, Ha tries to dissuade her saying that this will have an effect on the child’s upbringing, Chu gives in but announces that she will be divorcing King, everyone is stunned.

    In the big meeting, Lai suggests that they should buyout Shing Sai and use the company shell to float on the stock market, instead of using their own resources to float, Hau sees that Hong is prepared to contemplate this and is put out. Ha questions Lai about the takeover incident and Lai says that this is confidential and top secret, Ha reaises that Lai no longer trusts him. Kenneth says that Hau is short sighted and points out that the process of floating is not important, but the networking with the real estate companies in the mainland is the key to moving up in the world. Ha and Ngoi study Shing Sai’s annual reports and find that there is a problem with an insurance claim, they check this with Marco who used to work for Shing Sai. Ha instructs Ngoi to bring this to Lai’s attention, but not to tell him this is his intention, otherwise they would have a negative reaction. Ngoi tells Lai about this and Lai turns on her, saying that the reason Ha wants to get near to her is to get on with his power and career, the two fall out.

    Hong and the others arrive at Shing Sai’s factory in the mainland to look around and say that the price is too high, the boss of Shing Sai, Mr Ho’s heart drops together with Lai’s, but Ha can see through Hong’s advancement through withdrawal plan. Ha and Ngoi wait for Marco’s investigation in the hotel and find out that Shing Sai have been doctoring their accounts, they tell Lai and he questions Ha’s motives. Hong sees the report and cancels the takeover plans, Lai’s hatred for Ha grows even stronger. Ha resigns, but Ngoi strongly urges him to stay, but he refuses, saying that he is on a different path and goal from Lai.


    My daughter can take your surname Ko, but I want a divorce!

    There are three major flaws in that insurance, you must go and tell Lai, but don't tell him I sent you.

    Episode 14 - Dai Ha starts his pursuit of Yat Ngoi

    Leung wants to settle the differences between Ha and Lai, Ha uses beer to get the message across that the deterioration of their relationship was not done in a day. Leung is confused as to why Lai is not unhappy at Ha’s reluctance to accept his apology, Lai says that it is her concern which makes him happy, Leung becomes very nervous. Ngoi asks Marco to introduce Ha into Tin Lung and praises his determination and intelligence, Ha suddenly appears causing Ngoi to become very embarrassed, it turns out that Tin Lung wanted him all along.

    Hong sees that Hau and Wah are having a tussle and through Leung’s lip reading, he finds out that the two are plotting something, he is very disappointed with Hau. Hong secretly meets with Ha and examines the strengths and weaknesses of his three sons as he is worried about how they will be able to take over the company. Ha reckons that the tradition to pass the family business to the son and not the daughter is outdated, suggesting that he should arrange for Ngoi to become the Yongzheng of Siu Hong, Hong then asks him whether he would be prepared to be the dedicated official Zhang Tingyu. Hong brings in Ha as the Real Estate Development Department’s deputy manager and everyone is stunned, Lai’s hatred for him grows even stronger. Fong sees that after Ngoi has met Ha, she has become much happier and she wants to bring the two together, so she tells Hong to find out about how Ha feels.

    Everyone celebrates Ha’s promotion and are shocked to hear that Chu has been dismissed and is very worried. Leung knows that Chu is very worried about her future life and offers her more rent money, Chu is very grateful. After King finds out about Chu losing her job, he works harder at his part time jobs and Leung praises him. Hong pushes for Ha to actively pursue Ngoi’s love, but he doesn’t know what to do. Ha feels that chasing a woman is a new challenge and prepares a candlelit dinner, but Ngoi says that she wants to go for a hotpot, Ha can only set about making the setting romantic with flowers, but it all goes pear-shaped on him. After the meal, Ha takes Ngoi to the park and starts folding paper aeroplanes and reciting poetry, just as Ngoi is touched by this, a little child runs up to Ha and scolds him for being a litterbug, Ha is annoyed.


    Beer must be ice cold before it tastes good, but for ice to form takes more than one day's frost.

    If Ha doesn't accept my apology, I will be unhappy, but what makes me happiest of all is your concern for me!

    So you have no ideas how to win Rachel's affections so you are stealing them from the novels?

    Look at the sweat on your brow, let your king help you wipe it!

    Episode 19 - Neither Sei Leung nor Yat Ngoi can let go of Dai Ha

    Lai and Chun announce that they own 33% of the shares in Siu Hong and are deciding to change the chairman of the board, with Lai taking over, this makes Ha furious. Ha packs up his personal items in preparation to leave Siu Hong, Lai takes the chance to add his comments, but Ha suggests that he will not admit defeat. Ha suspects that Lai’s power in using Wang Tat to strike at Siu Hong is not as great as it seems and together with Ngoi and Hong, they go to Wang Tat to find Tung, but on many occasions they are refused a meeting. Ha knows that Tung is an antique fanatic and thinks of an idea to turn things around. Leung goes to the antiques shop to try and sell an edict from Yongzheng and this this attracts Tung’s attention so that he deliberately contacts Ha. Ha and the others tell Tung of the disadvantages of allowing Lai to be the chairman, but Tung is not moved at all, Hong and Ngoi are very disheartened, but Ha reckons that there is still a glimmer of hope. As Lai and Chun are interviewed by journalists, Hong and the others appear and say that they have come to regain the Chairman’s position, the two are shocked. They all go to Sei Bo to celebrate Hong getting back his company and Hong takes the opportunity to bring Ha and Ngoi back together, when Leung sees this she is not very happy.

    Fong tells Lai to apologise to Hong but Lai angrily refuses. Lai instinctively goes to Sei Bo to look for Leung and meets Yeung and his assistant Woo Hung, then without a word he gets into a fight with Hung, luckily Leung sees this and steps in to rescue him. On one hand, Leung helps Lai to rub in some ointment on his wounds, and on the other hand she urges him to change his ways and tells him of how she and Ha have been fighting for over two hundred years and are still in a mess, Lai doesn’t understand then he asks her if she will accept him again, Leung refuses. Disheartened, Lai gets drunk and thinking of the words of Leung and Yeung he comes to a decision. Mr Cheung persuades Leung to go to Shanghai to take part in a Food Court project, but Leung is a little hesitant. At this time, Ngoi comes to look for Leung and admits she will not let go of Ha, Leung reckons the wishes of Ha are more important. An old man asks for directions from Ha and then tells Lai that Ha is not his real identity.


    I am formally announcing a change of Chairman as I will be taking over.

    This edict cannot be joked about - it has Yongzheng's genuine calligraphy!
