Seasons and episodes
Chai Foon Cheung (Au-Yeung) used to be a really good gambler when he was younger, but one day when he was facing Kiu Ching Choh (Michael Miu) – it was the very day that he lost his little brother Chai Foon Lok. Cheung didn’t have the confidence to play so he forfitted the game, making Ah Choh win. Cheung becomes broke, jobless, and homeless on the streets of the Philippines. He meets Chou Fok Wing (Benz Hui) and they become really good friends.
Wing wants Cheung to pick himself back up again, so he and Choh trick Cheung and they all end up working at the ONISAC Casino. The three of them are really good friends. Choh and Wing manage to convince Cheung to go back to Hong Kong and face his parents. Cheung feels that they are still angry with him because he lost his little brother. But when he goes back, he learns that not only did they not find his brother, but his parents had passed away.
He moves into an apartment building with the help of Lee Ching Wan (Jessica Hsuan), a gambling-obsessed woman whom he met at the casino in the Philippines. His roommate is an anthropophobic young man by the name of Cheung Loi Fu (Bosco Wong). A certain chain of events leads to Cheung finding out that this youngster is actually his long- lost brother!
Cheung doesn’t tell Fu that they are brothers because he feels that they haven’t known each other for a very long time. But he still treats him with care and respect. Fu’s good friend and Ching Wan’s cousin Tam Chu Mei (Taiva Yeung) believes that Cheung has feelings for Fu…
Soon, Ching Wan and Choh start dating. But because Choh is being threatened by another man from his past, he breaks up with her. Choh now must comply with whatever he says, and is forced to rob the casino. Cheung finds this out, and in order to save himself, Choh “pretends” to kill Cheung by first beating him and then throwing him into the ocean. When Cheung wakes up in the hospital, the first person he sees is Ching Wan. He tells her everything, but she is still in doubt. However, Cheung gets really angry when Fu becomes a student of Choh’s. He tries to tell his brother of all the bad things that Choh has done, but Fu doesn’t believe him. He also gets really upset when he finds out that this man is his brother.
Choh does many things to drive the three best friends apart; he blames the robbery of the casino on Cheung, he tries to take Ching Wan away from Cheung, and he even tries to turn Ah Fu against him! But after a few events, Choh realizes that he would have rather given up his position as CEO and be with his friends, than be where he is today. Ah Wing has passed, and Choh is in jail. Cheung believes that everything will be okay again. Cheung and Fu now have a great relationship…but Ching Wan decides to leave. She says she cannot handle starting a relationship with Cheung so soon after these things has happened.
At the end, Cheung and Fu open up their own restaurant on the beach and live happily ever after…
