Man Suk explained to Chung that not only is the ship a special souvenir item from Mauritius it is also Ming's most important award which he received for being the Best Employee for 10 years!
Pansy offers to compensate Ming and asks Ming to name a price. Ming quickly says HKD 16, 000 (they amount he paid Chung earlier) but Chung refues to pay. Pansy offers to pay the amount but Ming refuses to accept the compensation from Pansy as he believes it wasn't pansy who broke his ship. At the same time, Chung is adamant that she did not break the ship and does not want Pansy to cover for her.
Pansy advises Chung and Ming to reach a compromise as they are after all neighbours. She even asks Chung to help Ming to repair the ship but Ming does not want Chung to touch his things. As he snatches the ship from Pansy's hands he knocked into the display shelf and the ship breaks into even more pieces. The ship is now beyond repair.
