Synopsis

It is Chinese New Year, a time of reunion, new clothes and glunttony. But for gym instructor Xavier Tan (Joshua Tan) and young tai tai Ping Wong (Felicia Chin), it is also a time of gain, specifically monetary gain in the form of hong baos. The two shysters partner up and pretend to be a 'couple' to convince Ping's wealthy grandmother that Ping has indeed broken off with her older French boyfriend (which she has not) and hand over a $100,000 hong bao for fulfilling the old lady's wish for Ping to have a nice Chinese boyfriend by this Chinese New Year. And as cunning and charming as Xavier and Ping are, they soon find themselves outplayed by fate and destiny as they really begin to fall in love.

华人农历新年即将到来,同时也是团聚,购买新衣和狂吃的欢乐时光。对健身教练 Xavier Tan (陈伟恩饰演)和年轻太太 Ping Wong (陈凤玲饰演)而言,这也是丰收的时期,因为他们会从他人手中接过好多红包。诡计多端的他们决定伪装成情侣来欺骗女方的奶奶,使奶奶相信她已经和法国男友分手。富裕的奶奶答应将一封装满十万元的红包给孙女,条件是她必须和一位华族男子交往。富有魅力但奸诈狡猾的他们想要趁机取利,却被命运击败;开始陷入爱河,假戏真做。
