I really liked Episode 12. In this episode, Hoi Sing and Hoi Liang's relationship continue to improve. The episode started with the 2 of them having lunch together and had a really calm conversation where Hoi Liang was explaining about his actions towards Lam Dai. He explained it very gently and Hoi Sing responded by saying he is not used to his uncle so gentle tone. When they left, the guy who wanted the land on which the factory sits (I can't recall his name) met them and I was really really liked this scene because here Hoi Liang protected Hoi SIng when that guy tried to touch Hoi Sing. In an earlier episode, this guy hit Damian really hard on his shoulders many times during the press conference for the housing project. I saw the fatherly act in Hoi Liang in wanting to protect Hoi Sing. For the first time, Hoi Sing understood why his uncle wanted to close down the factory and he started to understand his uncle. He even felt now that his uncle is not so bad after all. This episode also started showing a little of Lam Dai's arrogance and ambitious nature. One can argue that it was Hoi Liang who pushed him there but I think he started feeling jealous that everyone including his father seemed to favour Hoi Sing. I can see Hoi Liang's brilliance in recognising Lam Dai's scheming nature and try to warn Hoi Sing. Unfortunately, as always, Hoi Sing and even Macy does not believe him. Quite similar to Damian's character in DOL where everyone misunderstood Wah Man Hon although has the foresight and could recognise evil nature from the start. Hmmmmm, really getting interesting now........

I didn't know that HK stop broadcasting on Monday night due to incident.  That explains why the episodes'name have AOD on them instead of the normal HDZ. 
Penny is so fast.  I am also on episode 11 tonight.

Girls, I am just following what they show on AOD. Surprisingly, Astro did not stop broadcast yesterday. Episode 12 is really good and I look forward to your comments and critique ;P

 

My heart and prayers goes out to all the victims of the tour bus incident. Hope the survivors and the families of the departed will remain strong and grief peacefully. I hope people are not too overcome by emotions and react in a negative way making an already bad situation into a worse one.

Episode 13 and 14 - Hmmmmmmm, don't know what to say except these 2 episodes lead to the start of Lam Dai's evil scheme. I see now that his evilness is self created because of lack of self esteem. He tends to feel that people look down on him because he is poor. I kind of disliked Hoi Sing's blindly supporting his friend just because he is his friend. Rather irrational. I did not like Episode 13 where both Hoi Sing and Macy went against Hoi Liang because he was trying to protect them by getting rid of Lam Dai from Weng Hoi. I felt that Hoi Liang was very matured in his reading of Lam Dai although his style of management of the situation was somewhat authocratic. I felt sorry for Hoi Liang in both these episodes because he is so misunderstood. Anyway, I wished Hoi Sing and Macy's character was written more matured so that Lam Dai's evil scheme could have been caught on earlier but then we will not have the same story would we? Looking forward to some discussions about these episodes. [ Last edited by VictorPenny at 2010-8-26 23:22 ]

This weekend I was only able to watch up to episode 13. 

I thought how Albert protected Hoi Sing against that other business person was great.  It showed lots of care and I think it was the main turning point for Hoi Sing to be able to start looking at Albert differently.  :[54]:[42] 

I don't like the way Albert handle Linus and Macy's relationship at all.  I thought it was too one sided on Albert's part because he did it without investigation. :@ I felt it was totally out of his cool business demeanor. For the water pollution incident, he investigated and reacted properly to the other business man, but when it comes to his family he generally attacks without thinking.  I also think he favors Hoi Sing a lot in the company and is not being fair to other employees.  Albert is contradicting himself when he says he is doing what is best for the business.  I can start to understand and see why Linus will turn evil.  I don't blame him. He doesn't get enough credit for his talent and is always unappreciated! :@:@  I feel that the story is very well written about how Linus feels as I feel the same way he feels.


I enjoyed how Albert surprised his wife with him cooking a meal for her.  A very sweet husband and wife relationship! :[66]:[54]:[63]I think CC and Damian has done a wonderful job at making me feel their love for each other.

I can't wait to see more episodes!  I need to work hard on catching up! :[30]

I am up to Episode 16 yesterday and I am a bit bored with the way the story is developing. I feel Hoi Sing naiveness and blind support for Lam Dai is very immature. That gave Lam Dai a chance to make use of him for his own gains. I agree that Hoi Liang is very biased when it comes to his family. In Episode 16, Macy was injured in an accident. Hoi Liang started trusting Lam Dai as he was there during their hour of needs. Liza started suspecting her husband and that will also contribute to the fall of Hoi Liang eventually. Hmmmmm. Anyway I am sitting at the airport on my way to Singapore today. Will return tomorrow and will continue watching tomorrow.

I stopped writing for a while even though I have watched all the episodes aired so far because I have suddenly lost interest in this drama. Don't know why but I got quite upset with Hoi Sing's character because he is so naive. I kind of feel that he allowed Lam Dai to make use of him and made the whole development of the story so heart sick. One moment, he feels Hoi Liang kindness and start to trust, then all Lam Dai need to do is say a few words and he will be all angry with Hoi Liang again and do destructive things. I don't like the character becuase I feel no matter what, we must not behave childish and take revenge like this just because we are angry with someone. When Hoi Sing sell Chiu Chung's company share to let the price drop just to take revenge, I felt that was the height of his childishness. Then his mother dies and aloha, guess who he blamed. Hoi Liang of course without realising he was the one who stressed his mother most. I felt very mean that I did not feel feel sad that he cried so loudly at the hospital after his mother died because I predicted his reaction. He was going to blame Hoi Liang for her death just like how he blamed him for his father's death. I am beginning to feel very sorry for Hoi Liang. Getting blamed for everything. Maybe, their characters were written like this and these guys acted it so well for me to have such uncomfotable feelings. I feel sorry for Macy, not knowing anything but just getting drawn into it. Liza is also beginning to act irrational just to get even with Hoi Liang, sigh.... The whole story is revolving around hatred and revenge and evilness now, hmmm, not my cup of tea. I hope episode 25 or so come quickly when all the evil are exposed......

 

Episode 20 actually had some very nice comforting scenes too. It was when Hoi Sing and Hoi Liang cooked tomato and luncheon meet for Hoi Sing's mum in the kitchen. Then they were again in the kitchen preparing sweet dumpling for Macy's wedding eve.

I have not seen episode 20 yet so I have no comment on it other than that fact I can't wait to see it.

Overall, I agree with Penny that Hoi Sing is very naive and it is frustrating to see him act the way he does.  I feel bad for Albert and it is no wonder why in the episode when Hoi Sing's mom spill the beans about Hoi Sing being Albert's real son, Albert first said don't blame me because someone dies.

I feel that Bosco is not a true villain as he did seem like he felt bad when CC fell down the stairs.  However I did not see him regretting what had happen afterward so I am not so sure on his character here.  Additionally, I was a bit disappointed that the series never showed how Linus felt after finding out what happen to the baby because the crew spent so much time establishing the relationships and how he turn to be more evil of a person that I would of expect at least a brief scene about Linus' take on the outcome.

As for the past few episodes,  I enjoyed the following scenes the most.

  • When Liza searches through the office and found a box with pictures of her and Albert.  I felt CC did an awesome job here.  I just felt what she felt.  Her tears came so naturally.
  • When Albert explains to Liza about dating Hoi Sing's mom in the past.  I thought the couple chemistry was great in this scene.  Additionally, Damian's facial expressions here were very varying and expressive. 
  • When Albert and Liza was on the merry-go-round, they discovered that the horse had a crack on it.  I thought this was great foreshadowing of a the crack/misunderstanding in their perfect/happy couple's relationship.

Episode 21 sees Hoi Sing continue his assault on Hoi Liang and is now under instigation from Lam Dai buying Weng Hoi's shares from outside to qualify to call for a shareholder's meeting to strip Hoi Liang off his chairmanship. Lai King comes into the picture to try and stop the irrational Hoi Sing but she failed. Hoi Sing made it to the shareholder meeting and proposed to replace Hoi Liang. Half the shareholders supports him but finally it was Liza's vote that tipped the balance against Hoi Liang. It was so painful to watch Hoi Liang shocked, betrayed and sad face. There was not a hint of anger because I think he was too shocked that Liza would betray him. It almost broke my heart to see his pained expressions. Lam Dai of course was keeping quiet and just enjoying the fight within the family.

 

Today there were some really emotional scenes, such as Hoi Sing's mother's funeral and Hoi Liang was not allowed to attend and he had to wait until everyone has left before he could pay his last respects. He looked a broken man. I was so relieved that he waited until Hoi Sing and the rest left before he went to the grave because I cannot bear to see him facing a shouting and screaming Hoi Sing again. By the next episode, I think Lam Dai will show his true colours and now I am feeling much better watching the drama because then people are fighting fair and not being used by the evil ones.

 

In one particular scene, Liza was talking to Lam Dai and she did not even want to mention Hoi Liang's name, she just referred him to "that person" So sad! From such a loving couple to this state. More tomorrow..........
