Episode 5 is practically all in flashbacks, and the main theme of all the flashbacks is courtship. Aww.
We find out how Rex met Ying first. Yes, Rex got to know her first, but she somehow didn’t seem all that interested in getting to know him better.
They met at a music store, he broke the figurine that she was holding, and tried to help her get it fixed. She wasn’t all that interested in accepting his help even, but he followed her into her stepmother’s (not aunt btw, my mistake) dessert shop. He later on bought a brand new figurine for Ying’s brother, and then only did she seem to like him enough to call him.
Ying and Chung Sir’s meeting came later on, in a whole knight-in-shining-armour fashion too. She was going around to the farming area where Chung Sir’s father had his veggie farm (and other farmers too of course) to promote organic fertilisers. She encountered a dog which frightened her, and Chung Sir very kindly chased it away.
We also learn that Ying graduated with a degree in the sort of agricultural field, and she’s not employed yet. Promoting organic fertilisers is just volunteer work, for the better of humankind I suppose.
So the story is that one day Chung Sir brings Rex to the dessert shop where they look upon Ying from afar, and Chung Sir tells Rex that he’d like Ying to be his girlfriend one day. And Rex, with a heartbroken look upon his face, deletes Ying’s number from his phone, and presumably, steps aside in this love triangle. Aww. What a hero.
The other courtship in the episode would be…the courtship of Rex and Chung Sir. Lol. Entirely fictional. Well, not so, since I do have caps to prove some hanky panky, but mostly it’s just lots of brotherly (or brokebacky, depending on how corrupted your mind is) scenes between these two, which just made the flashbacks somewhat more bearable. Let the pictures do the talking. Or my captions.
But when Chung Sir is promoted to be a team leader…
Rex wasn’t all that traumatised…if you know what I mean.
And the last cap really did look like they were having their wedding dinner. Lol. Even the colours fit. One is dressed in a black suit, and the other white. Now, if you tell me the Tvb scriptwriters didn’t try so hard…
