Seeing Siu Yung fall head over heels for her senior that turns out to be a sex manic and cheater, he can’t keep his feelings under wrap. Tong Yan told her that he don’t know he really like a male or female, but that doesn’t matter because he only likes her.

Dating a younger man

Amelia’s energy, positivity, and physical traits do not look like her actual age but her experience in life made her an attractive individual. She chanced upon Rex Cheng Yu (Matthew Ho) who seems like a lost jobless youth. Rex owns his own gaming empire and he did not care much about how he looks until he wants to prove to Amelia a point.

Matt realized that he start to developed feelings for Amelia through daily behavior such as buying a good mattress for her just so she can have a good night sleep. Knowing that Rex and Amelia is in courtship, he chose to give them a blessing.

The drama has a good take and balance between comedy and serious PR crisis moments. The complicated relationships between different couples and the complexity that not everyone can relate to.

Will Amelia and Matt end up together? Or just soul-mates is sufficient?
