Kim Fook-sing becomes angry because of this, and decides to play a trick on Sham Hwa-kueng (沈華強), so he tries to force him to resign his post, and move to Singapore. Tiew Wai-ching (張慧貞) realizes that Kim Fook-sing (甘福勝) is a playboy and hooligan, so she goes to Singapore, and studies in a girls high school with her local friend Low Kit-yuk (劉潔玉), and falls in love with the friend's cousin, Sham Hwa-kueng (沈華強).
