However, their teacher-pupil relationship prevents them from openly showing their affections and can only pass secret love letters.

(Long Summary from TVB official site)
Since the Kam family of the Ming Dynasty made a vow under the wishing tree to be together forever for every generation, in the blink of an eye we arrive in Hong Kong in 2003. Yau Nim Chi has become the owner of a HK style cafe, Chi was a police officer in her youth and after marrying the "Tung Mat Yuen" cafe owner Kam Wah, she left her position to look after the three young children that Wah had with his previous wife. The eldest son was Kam Nin, second son Kam Yuet and youngest daughter Kam Yat and although they were not borne from Chi, they see her as their natural mother and the family lived together harmoniously. After Wah died, Chi took on the role of father and together with Wah's sister Kam Sa Sa, they continued to look after the cafe and although it is a small business, they had a comfortable life; eighteen years later, Nin, Yuet and Yat have grown up and each has their own successes.
Eldest son Kam Nin works in a fashion company as Merchandising Manager and although he is appreciated by his manager Wong Sheung, he is considered as competition by another Merchandising Manager in Ka Yan Company, Man Kwai Fei. The two have their own stances and in work are always fighting to win each other, whilst the smooth and cunning Sheung watches over but does nothing, so as to allow the two to show their talents whilst he reaps all the rewards. Sheung has an only daughter Wong Yee who has been spoilt from an early age and has never been through any hardship and studied fashion design at a top school in England. On one occasion, when returning to Hong Kong on vacation, she gave up her studies for the sake of an argument and decided to find herself a job, Sheung is very concerned that her naivety will lead her to be tricked, so he secretly arranges for her to work in his company and they reach an agreement that they will keep their connections a secret as she is sent to be a fashion designer in his company. With no social experience, Yee sees her work as a plaything and is forever leaving her work to the very last moment before the deadlines, causing much frustration for Nin, who does everything by the rule book and wants to fire Yee, at this time, Sheung steps in to say that she has a three year contract with them and he cannot fire her, Nin doesn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Second son Kam Yuet also works in Ka Yan Company as a Merchandiser but he is under the supervision of Nin's nemesis Fei, who sees him as a problem and takes every opportunity to criticise his work. Yuet has a girlfriend in the company who is also a Merchandiser called Lam Yuk Lo, Lo has always seen Yuet as a likely candidate for marriage and is very controlling over him, but he is willing to bear with this. Lo is very petty and is a little woman and has a sworn sister at work Shek Mei, although the two have differing personalities, when Lo joined the company three years ago, she quickly became good friends with Mei, who has been neighbours with Yuet since she was young. Mei's parents Shek Tai Chuen and Chan Kiu are old workers at Tung Mat Yuen so Mei grew up with the three Kam siblings and is particularly close to Yat with whom she often discusses her feelings. Yat has seen very early on that Mei is attracted to Yuet, but she has never let on her feelings to him and when she saw that Lo started dating Yuet after joining the company, then she can only put her feelings away in her heart. Because Yat is aware of Mei's feelings for Yuet, she does not have any good feelings towards her sister-in-law-to-be and often argues with her.
Kam Yat has had a love for acting since she was very young and after her A-levels, she entered the TV station's acting school, after graduating she has only had bit parts in her shows, but this has not wained her enthusiasm towards acting and because she is immersed in the world of the media, she has seen many faces of human nature and she has a deep hatred for those people who mask their true selves and have fake personalities. Ko Yee Hong is a designer at Ka Yan Company and also Yat's neighbour and his appearance and character gives people the impression that he is a homosexual, but Yat is adamant to go against these opinions by saying that Hong is just pretending to be gay so that girls will put their guard down and he can take advantage of them, she vows to break through this false image of his. In reality, Hong is not really homosexual, but he is also not as Yat thinks pretending to be gay to take advantage of girls, it is actually just that Hong is very picky and petty and a lover of beauty and perfection which makes him give people the wrong impression about his sexuality, including his natural father Shek Tai Kei.
Kei is the brother of Shek Tai Chuen, with an artiste name of Man Wong Kei he was a star of the films of the seventies where his first film gained him Best Actor award at the Sri Lanka Film Festival and gained him a period of notoriety. At the time, Kei was brainwashed by his success and he threw away the present given to him by his devoted fan Kam Sa Sa, she found out about his bad behaviour and changed her opinions on Kei, until this day Kei's career has taken a downward turn and now takes on the odd role for "mature" actors at the TV station, Kei still doesn't know that that fan who he hurt so many years ago is the same Sa who is the neighbour who keeps arguing against him.
It is not only Kei who is not at peace with Sa, there is also Wan Ying Gei who was a high school classmate of hers, at the time the two were like sisters, but later they became enemies and after so many years, they treated each other as strangers until later Gei married into the Kam family and became their Auntie and the reason for their disharmony is finally revealed.
For twenty years, Chi has watched her children grow up and worked with Sa to manage the cafe and take it to its current success and she takes pride in this. However, Chi has still one wish unfulfilled and that is to find Law Tin Fu, who is the brother of the three children's natural mother Law Bing. When Fu was lost, he was only a baby and Chi only knows that he had a birthmark on his body and has no other way of recognising him, so after so many years she has not had any news of him.
On the day of Chi's 48th birthday, after an incident with an error in a tenancy contract, an unwanted guest arrives at the Kam Family who is nasty tenant Lau Gam. Gam's irresponsible behaviour causes much trouble for the Kams. Eventually, as a result of a major argument with the family, they find that Gam is their long lost uncle of thirty years Law Tin Fu and the tranquility of the Kam family is about to be met with some great waves!

"With no clouds in the sky, there will be no rain
With no matchmakers on the earth, there will be no marriage
How can you be without the Golden Ice People when it comes to the biggest decision of your life?"
The Ice People of ancient times are the Matchmakers of today. In the Tang dynasty, three 'ice people' who called themselves the greatest matchmakers in the world went far and wide to bring together true lovers and were eventually famed as the "Golden Ice People".
Chang An's famous Lam family are offering a large sum in search of a son-in-law and is causing some excitement among the matchmakers. With a cheeky but honourable personality, self-named "Golden Bird Bridge" Chuen Ka Fook (Steven Ma) and also famed in the matchmaking world "Golden Chrysanthemum Fan" Lin Pak Hap (Maggie Cheung) put their abilities against each other for the first time and their target is the amazing constable from a noble family Ko Pui (Moses Chan). As the two go head to head, the official matchmaker Ling Ku Hei (Joyce Coi) takes her chance. However, Pui has his hearts set on another and dressed as a man, Hei is not able to gain any advantage and finds herself falling for him instead. For fear of losing the post that she holds and being found out she is misleading the emperor, she can only hide away her love.
Fook and Hap realise that as two dogs fight, there will be one injured, so they co-operate and create "Joined by a Thread" matchmaking service to maximise their hold on the matchmaking business. However on the day of their opening, they find that their respective parents have already arranged their own marriages and their partners are close by!
The court sends down an official order of marriage, everyone who has reached maturity needs to be married within one year and as everyone seeks their other half, major confusion arises...
