Synopsis:

Mrs. Cash (Michelle Yim) is successful in both career and life. However, she accidentally discovers that her husband Mr. Cash (Dominic Lam) has committed adultery. In order to maintain the relationship, Mrs. Cash is willing to take the risk of getting pregnant despite her age. Pregnancy has imposed great pressure on her daily life as well as her career. Her aggressive subordinate Jackie (Maggie Cheung Ho-yee) therefore seizes the chance to take up her duties. Jackie is a bold and decisive person at work but she is caught in a quadrangular relationship by falling in love with the married man Nick (Joe Ma Tak-chung).

Discouraged by the relationship failures of her bosses, secretary BiBi (Joyce Tang) further impairs her confidence. Bibi's "outstanding" body shape, further increases her inferiority. Encouraged by her colleague Chi Lam (Power Chan), BiBi decides to boost her self-esteem by getting plastic surgery.

Upon her getting rich and famous, BiBi suddenly realizes that this is not what she really wants...

I didn't plan on watching this, but the cast is too good to pass over. And the plotline seems really interesting after watching a few... eh TVB series. I'm really glad I gave it a shot because it's so far so good; excellent acting and dialogues. I look forward to the next episode every day =)

Besides A Fistful of Stances, this is the only TVB drama that has attracted me this year. The cast is absolutely amazing. The sets, the wardrobes, the characters, the dialogue, etc. are all excellent. I really hope this drama gets good ratings. It's been so far, so good, and it seems like the HK audiences are also really enjoying it.

Just started watching this yesterday.

Wow, I absolutely love Maggie in this series, her character is just so.. likeable.

The scenes with Power + Joyce are hilarious too. That opening scene where they made

her run for the elevator just got my laughing my butt off. So far, this series

looks quite promising.

If I'm correct, I believe JJ won the Beautiful Cooking first season...?

I love Maggie's fashion in this series. I just had to say that, haha.

I LOLed every single time Cash Tai and her husband speaks of making babies with the doctor. Their dialogues are really funny =) But yes, this is a definite watch after Fistful of Stances.

Yes, JJ did win the Beautiful Cooking champion in 2006 and then she became popular from being one of the 'angels' on Foodie 2 Shoes. She even got to release an album about that...

So how is this series?! I was a bit hesitant at first but I just dled the first episode because I'm so bored. Haven't watched it yet.

^aww really? you should pick it up again...i didn't think much of the first episode either but my mom wanted to watch it so i watched with her and it was really good. I love the script. They pick up on interesting points. It definitely surprised me with the sex talk and mild sex scenes LOL, i never expected it coming from TVB since to me TVB dramas always seems so family friendly. The development of characters is also done really well. And I must admit there are some interesting twists here and there that I never expected coming...

For those who are wondering JJ plays Joe Ma's wife in this series...her character gets interesting near the middle, gave me quite the shock....
