Synopsis[edit]

Chew Chor Meng and Huang Wenyong return as the "kiasu" Ah Bee and his penny-pinching uncle Kim Lye respectively.

Ah Bee has set up a real estate company with Taiwanese partner Xu Jiefu. By chance, Jiefu employs Mabel as her English proficiency is crucial when dealing with foreign clients. However, Ah Bee and the recently divorced Mabel are often at loggerheads with each other. Mabel turns out to be Ming Zhu's English teacher in the past

Ah Bee's uncle Kim Lye is boss of a provisions shop. Kim Lye's employee "Mee Siam" is very pretty and often attracts customers, especially Jiefu who tries to woo her. Later, Kim Lye employs his old friend's son Daji and makes him work long hours without overtime pay to save money.
