Synopsis
有营煮妇

Upon returning from a trip with her husband NG MAN TAK (Chung King Fai), cookery teacher LO SIU LAI (Louise Lee Sze Kei) is shocked to find that her little daughter NG CHOI NI (Fala Chen) has started cohabiting with a homosexually inclined colleague LAU TAT YAN (Hung Tin Ming) while her divorced sister LO SIU MEI (Christine Ng Wing Mei) is seemingly caught up in a love triangle between tenant YAU KAI (Evergreen Mak) and her ex-husband. By and by TAK is forced to retire early and stays at home all day with nothing to do. LAI, on the other hand, is lucky enough to have the opportunity to host a culinary show on TV. Everything seems to have happened too fast but this does not leave LAI frustrated and accursed. Instead she tries to get round every problem with even more patience and dedication, which however is not appreciated by TAK. The bickering continues until LAI eventually thinks of a good way to tackle TAK.

Delivering a real taste of home, “The Stew of Life” gives you an insight into how women think and feel about relationship and family issues as a daughter, wife and mother.


烹飪导师鲁小丽(李司棋)与丈夫吴敏德(钟景辉)去了一趟旅行回来,小女儿吴采妮(陈法拉)与怀疑有同性恋倾向的同事刘达人(洪天明)同居、失婚的妹妹鲁小美(伍咏薇)则与租客游佳(麦长青)及前夫三人关系曖昧、丈夫被迫提早退休赋闲在家、自己却遇上黄金机会,成了电视台烹飪节目主持。家庭的突变并未让这位万能主妇气馁,反而付上诸般的忍耐及加倍的爱心来排难解纷,但丈夫总不识时务,专唱反调,小丽终想出妙法对付丈夫……。《有营煮妇》道尽女性为母、为妻、为女,当面对家庭、男女关系及婚姻时,站在不同位置上的种种心态,以不同的火候和温度拿捏出一顿乐也融融、滋味在心头的家常便饭。

    Doesn’t sound like a very interesting drama

  • Chloe says:

    Lee See Kei seems to be playing the same characters over and over again. I, personally, am losing interest in her acting and her dramas.

    • KTVB says:

      I agree..though you can tell she’s trying to act differently in this series. I think it’s through her voice (to make it softer). It doesn’t seem natural though

  • jenny says:

    Man , this sounds like a uniteresting drama . Why did they decide to air this instead of A WatchDog Tale’s ? i really wanna see that series with linda and steven . and mostly a bride for a ride . that drama is just ridiculous . I WILL NEVER WATCH THAT STUPID DRAMA .

  • grub says:

    I think in this drama, fala looks like a nerd with the big glasses and mushroom like haircut…not sure though…

  • meiz says:

    can i know whats the dog breed of the Jack inside this movie?

  • person says:

    yup it is…

  • Helen says:

    I’ve seen bits and pieces of this series, i like the character that Chung King Fai plays – he’s quite a funny man! I like Fala Chen since Moonlight Resonance, but in this series her character is a bit of a smart ass =S perhaps watch the first episode just to get a taste of it, and continue if you like it =)

    • KTVB says:

      My least favourite character in the series is actually Chung King Fai. I find him quite annoying in lots of respects ( like jealous over a dog :P)

  • Coco says:

    I haven’t watched this show, but the themesong looked like it was the same miniature schnauzer dog from The Seventh Day.

  • Jolie Fille says:

    I like this movie!!!
    it’s meaningful. It’s connected with family, career and character. From different dimension you can learn and pick up some value of life within though the series sound quite” aunty” for housewife audience, indeed, after watching, it’s interesting and i like Chung King Fai’s character.
    hahah….humourous!!!

  • Evelyn says:

  • jenjen says:

  • Annie says:

    This movie was okay, but at some points I found it quite boring
