Simon accidentally falls in love with Siu Tung and tries everything to let Siu Tung fall in love with him, after failing and embarrassing himself multiple times, Siu Tung finally falls in love with Simon.

After they tell their father Ching Sing that they are getting married, Ching Sing reveals that his long time pen pal Chi Sum Chan (Sandra Ng) is coming to Hong Kong.
