Episode 5 starts with Hor Ma having breakfast with Ka, asking him about Chung. Why is Chung constantly unhappy. Ka says that Chung is like an island, he likes to be alone most of the time. She then ask about Yuen, Ka says he is busy with the opening of one of their shops, but it turned put the shop was already opened a year ago. Ka is really not up to date with his siblings info much to the chagrin of Hor Ma.
Hor Ma asked Ka if he remembers the promise he made when he was young, prior to Hor Ma and Tai Jo's divorce. It turns out that the promise Ka made was to become Hor Ma's spy on Tai Jo's side of the family. She told him that if the judge ask Ka who he prefers living with, he should answer Tai Jo. This is because he's the eldest and Hor Ma wants him to watch over his younger siblings. [Comment: So it turned out that it wasn't a coincidence that he was assigned to Tai Jo!] Ka said that if he were to be a spy (ngo dai) then Hor Ma must forever keep his file, never lose the file that says he is her son!
Sa Yee once again asked Tat Suk to lend her HKD 200,000. She also warned Tat Suk not to let Hor Ma know. She says she needs the money to pay her lawyer fees as the initial sum she borrowed is not enough. [I'm curious why she needs so much money. I wonder if the lawyer reason is actually the truth or a scam...?] Tat Suk also warned Sa Yee not to fight with Yuet anymore. She asked Tat Suk how did they end up adopting Yuet. Yuet is actually the child of one of their neighbours. Her parents left her in Hor Ma's shop to do some errands but they never returned. Tat Suk said Yuet was fair and cute so they applied to social services to adopt her.
After dinner, Yuet feels suffocated staying in the same house as Sa Yee so she went down for a breather. Ho followed her down and shared a funny story about Sa Yee with her to cheer her up. Ho advise her that the cunniving Sa Yee will eventually get the repercussions of her actions. [It's nice to see the siblings' bond. They are really close and and I get all warm and fuzzy seeing them care for one another. ] Yuet is angry with Sa Yee not because Sa Yee called her a "lo lui" but because Sa Yee is spending all of Hor Ma and Tat Suk's hard earned money!
Yuet is considering moving out from Hor Ma's place. She thinking of sharing a place with her boyfriend, Eric. But Eric thinks that they are both not earning enough to be staying on their own. It's better if they continue living at home with their respective families. However, Yuet told him that she's really unhappy staying at home and really wants to move out.
Queenie, one of Hor Ma's neighbours and a bank employee, came to the shop and informed Hor Ma that Tat Suk recently made a withdrawal of HKD 200,000. Upon hearing that, Hor Ma and Ho quickly rush home. Ho asked Tat Suk why did he withdraw the money, but Tat Suk asked him to leave the matter. When Ho keep pressing Tat Suk, he said that the money is his. He can do as he pleases. Hor Ma asked if Tat Suk lend Sa Yee the money, but before Tat Suk can answer, Sa Yee owned up. She says that he husband still has Euro 5,000,000 worth of properties, so he has to share half of that with her. Ho asked her if she can win the case, she insists that the winning chance is over 90%. Tat Suk is confident that Sa Yee won't cheat him of his money!
Yuet also used this opportunity to announce that she is moving out of the house. She says that she'll be sharing a place with her colleague, and the new place is nearer to her work place. Tat Suk, Hor Ma and Ho advised her not to move out, but she is firm with her decision.
After moving out, Yuet only keeps in touch with Hing. They constantly email one another. Hing misses Yuet terribly, no one to chat with at night, no one to share food with. Yuet told Hing that her decision to move out is a correct one as she is now much, much happier. She has to be more frugal - having "2 person 1 pot" steamboat meals with her boyfriend, signing up for gym at HKD 138 for 2 persons and takes advantage of all the gym benefits! Eric is still staying with his parents as they plan to save as much money as possible for their wedding.
Hing told Yuet that Ho is very upset because everytime he calls Yuet, she doesn't pick up the phone. Ho and Hing wanted to visit Yuet but they don't have her address. Yuet told them not to worry. She doesn't pick up Ho's calls because she is afraid that Ho might nag her. Yuet reminded Hing not to let Ho know that she is back together with Eric.
Hing was reading her emails in the room when Sa Yee asked her to help Tat Suk to configure the massage chair. Sa Yee saw the emails and print them out to show the rest of the family. Tat Suk was upset when he saw Eric's photos in the email. Apparently, Yuet and Eric were started dating in high school Eric is overly ambitious and not loyal in their relationship. Eric was also the cause of Yuet not doing well in her university entrance exams.
Sa Yee blamed Ho, questioning him why he didn't watch over his sister. They also discovered that Yuet owes a finance company (but more towards the side of dai yee long) money. Ho asked Hing why did Yuet take a loan from the finance company. Hing was reluctant to reveal the reason but Ho pestered her. The loan is actually for Eric, as he needs money to purchase goods for his boutique. Yuet has settled approximately half of the loan, there's about 10 over installments left. Ho asked Hing for Yuet's address but this time she can't tell because she really doesn't know! She only knows that Yuet stays somewhere in an area called "Kun Tong".
Yuet was upset with Eric as he did not pay the last 3 months installment for their loan. The people from the finance company called her at work and her boss found out about this. Her boss warns her never to let this happen again. Eric was adamant that he is right as he needs the money to buy more goods for his boutique. Also, he blamed Yuet for giving Hor Ma allowance of HKD 2,000 a month. According to Eric, if Yuet didn't give Hor Ma the moeny, they wouldn't have to stinge so much. Yuet was very upset, she stormed off and cried.
Ho was in Kun Tong area and called Yuet. Ho wanted to meet up with her and told her that he'll wait for her no matter how late it is. When she turned around, Eric is back and sings a song to apologise to her. They made up. Yuet then called Ho to cancel their meet-up.
Hing sms Yuet to ask her what happened as she has not been in contact with anyone for them for the past few days. Poor Yuet was fired from her job because the finance company people keep calling her office. Eric also dumped Yuet because she pressured him too much to get married. Hing suggest that they tell Hor Ma everything but Yuet was apprehensive. She doesn't know how to face Hor Ma.
Once again Sa Yee is the culprit. She caught Hing sending sms and snatched the phone from her. Now everyone knows that Yuet is in trouble - that she has broken up with Eric, lost her job and is hunted by the finance company to pay her debt! Hor Ma tried calling Yuet but couldn't get her. Sa Yee called her landlady but her landlady said Yuet has not been home for a few days. The family is now very, very worried about Yuet.
Ho bumped into Sum on the ferry and he told her that Yuet has been missing. She immediately offered to cancel her plans and accompany Ho to look for Yuet. They found Yuet at the gym but Yuet feels ashamed and runs off. Hor Ma even called all of Yuet's friends to look for her. When Ho informed Hor Ma that he has seen Yuet, the whole family (except Sa Yee) rush out of the house to look for Yuet.
As her family was looking for her, Yuet hides in a public phone booth. She listened to all the voicemails left by her family. They were all so worried for her. After searching for a while, Hor Ma spotted Yuet and they were united again!
Back at home, Hor Ma warn Sa Yee never again to refer to Yuet as "lor lui". Hor Ma also reminded Yuet that although Yuet is not her biological child, Yuet has been her family member for over 20 years! She also sounded Ka for failing to watch over his siblings. She then asked all the children to go to their rooms, but Sa Yee told her that there's no shame in teaching her children in front of others.
After hearing what Sa Yee said, Hor Ma proceed to give her a dressing down in front of everyone. Hor Ma called Sa Yee a failure! It seems Hor Ma took Sa Yee's letter from the lawyers to be translated. Sa Yee went nuts, reprimanding Hor Ma for not respecting her privacy. Hor Ma questioned Sa Yee in return, asking her if she actually knows the meaning of "privacy" when she read Hing's emails and sms from Yuet! [Spot on Hor Ma! =D] Hor Ma informed Tat Suk that the success rate of her divorce suit is only 1%. Sa Yee was the only one who's so determined to fight a losing battle! Tat Suk was upset when he heard this and asked Sa Yee how could she spend all his retirement savings.
