Synopsis[edit]

Stella Yip Moon-Chi (Christine Ng) is an interior designer who works as the head of her business' team, but is demanding, high-strung, and treats her staff badly. When her secretary tells Stella's boss about Stella's stress related health problems, Stella is fired. She ends up meeting Choi Ka-Sing (Sunny Chan), her dream man, a mellow and easy-going man working as a utility man, and learning to relax.

At the same time, Stella's family struggles with problems of their own. Stella's younger sister, Yip Moon-Lam (Mimi Lo), and her husband, Hung Kwok-Wai (Wong Chi Yin), are selfish and opportunistic, taking advantage of everyone, including Stella's father, Yip Cheung-Fat (Yuen Wah) and her older brother, Yip Shang-Shing (Makbau Mak)'s family; Stella's sister-in-law, Chu Lai-Ngoh (Kingdom Yuen) is constantly suspicious of Stella's younger sister's motives and they argue all the time. Stella's father, finally tired of trying mediate his unstable family, is befriended by Choi Ka-Sing and moves back to the countryside, where he becomes friends with Choi Ka-Sing's family. At the same time, Choi Ka-Sing's shy younger brother, Choi Ka-Bo (Lai Lok-yi), becomes infatuated with a passionate environmental activist, Yung Wai-Yu (Natalie Tong), who ends up being the younger sister of an affluent businessman at the company where Stella's brother-in-law works.
