Continuing on from my last post, I’ve watched another 20 episodes (ep26-45 so more than half way through the series already!) and I was a little disappointed with what happened shortly after my previous post. The series got a little dull again afterwards, but luckily the love plots starting picking up in the more recent episodes, and I’ll pick out some major events to talk about…onto the love plots :)!
Maggie(Sylvia) | Bowie(Calvin) | Kenny (Sunny)
When Maggie confronted Kenny and he confessed his feelings for Bowie to her, I felt it was such an awkward moment! They were both love rivals for Bowie but she didn’t want him to leave. She wanted them to stay as friends, and pushed him to tell Bowie his feelings instead of torturing himself like that. Bowie has always thought Kenny was upset because he also liked Maggie, but didn’t have a clue it was him that he liked. Kenny tried to tell him, but couldn’t bring out the courage.
Bowie wants to keep his girlfriend and best friend. He challenges Kenny(who trains very frequently) in a boxing match and hopes that it would help release his anger and that if Bowie was able to withstand it all, Kenny would have to stay.
Luckily, Maggie was able to persuade him to stay nevertheless and that she would not tell Bowie about it so it wouldn’t ruin their friendship.
One day, when Maggie accidentally got some flower powder on her that Bowie was allergic to, Bowie started having major asthma attack and she didn’t know what to do. Luckily Kenny was there just in time and took care of him…It’s weird when you watch it now and you know Kenny actually loves Bowie XD He’s so attentive towards him ~ Love the chemistry! <3Maggie started to feel she wasn’t a good girlfriend, or perhaps wasn’t willing to put in the extra effort to be more careful.
I was so disappointed that Maggie and Bowie’s relationship ended so quickly shortly after and it felt so sudden too. I couldn’t understand what really went wrong because they both seemed happy, but after Lee See Kei told Maggie that she knew Bowie was not the right person for her, she broke up with him after having dinner with his mother. Taking her to have dinner with his mother showed how much he really loved her. It didn’t seem like a reasonable explanation was given except she wasn’t happy being with him. Was it because she felt she wasn’t giving him as much as he deserved? (after comparing herself to Kenny?) She also seemed frustrated by Bowie when he put his business/career before her, always having her to wait for him. But I thought she would understand..?And so, Maggie broke off the relationship despite Bowie not wanting to and I thought it was a pity. Bowie was also able to “pass” Maggie’s parents (i.e Lee See Kei and John Chiang) too. Luckily, Maggie is a career- focused person and did not let her love life affect her work. She knew Bowie is a good boss and there were plenty of opportunities for development in career path so continues to work for him. I like watching the three of them working together 🙂
Screencap on the left: Maggie breaks up with Bowie.
I started getting interested in this love plot again in the more recent episodes where it became more obvious that Bowie and Maggie still had feelings for each other, and Bowie continued to do things for Maggie because he cared a lot about her. He still cared about how she saw him and didn’t want her to feel uncomfortable/upset, for example, giving more attention to another woman. This is when Florence “Catherine”, their potential business partner enters the story and she falls for Bowie, becoming very dependent on him. I think Florence is pretty cute in this series with all her eating habits but I feel sorry for her because it seems like they’re just using her feelings for him to help them out etc. She’s not a very strong woman, but her brother had to pass on the business to her because he as very ill.
Bowie was not interested in her and when his intentions became obvious to her; this affected Florence and she didn’t want to work with them anymore. Maggie kept pushing Bowie to apologise and keep her ‘company’, so Bowie deliberately pretended to have spent the night with her, making Maggie extremely jealous XD It’s a love square now! Or shall I say- love pentagon!
After ‘Joey’ (Maggie’s assistant) got rejected by Kenny after her advances towards him, she wanted to prove to him there was nothing wrong with her, and it was his loss. She ended up getting involved with some guy and then getting dumped after tricking her money. After seeing the terrible misery she was put through, Kenny decided to give her (and himself) a chance by dating her.
I think he felt sorry for her and wanted to make up to her while giving himself a break away from Bowie.
Maggie surprised that Kenny’s car is all pink and fluff XD Decorated by his girlfriend
That didn’t last long though as he kept thinking about Bowie. Kenny still cared a lot about Bowie and when he noticed him having a few coughs, Kenny bought heaps of packets of cough lollies for him. His girlfriend, Joey thought they were for her and kept test tasting them, throwing them in the bin when she didn’t like a taste of some. He got really irritated by her (I did too) and finally she broke off her relationship with him when she noticed him sending/receiving sms from ‘someone’ (i.e Bowie) and he denied it was the person he ‘used to like’. I don’t really get it. He could have told her it was just from Bowie, she wouldn’t suspect he was gay right? Maybe he didn’t want anyone suspecting him at all..hm…he couldn’t let go of Bowie <3
This love triangle is still my favourite at the moment. I love watching all three of them together XD Love the chemistry!!
