Are you... Lin?

Evelyn, sir

Whatever. Let's go, Lin

Let me be clear.

I've hired many helpers. I know you people

I know some of you just see it as a vacation.
You'd better not

If you leave after just a month or two

I have to hire again and pay for the flights

It's not the right thing to do

If one day you find a better boss like Mary

Congratulations to you

But tell me in advance, okay?

I had no help in the past month.
How troublesome!

If Fai wasn't free,
I had to sleep on the wheelchair

"Sun Man House"

The password is 2468

I wonder who the hell set it. 2468

We may as well not lock it

2468, open the door

Why are you standing still?

What the fuck?

She doesn't speak Cantonese! What the fuck?

C'mon! It took me long enough to find her

The Cantonese speaking ones won't work for you!

She's the only one willing to do it

She was even a nurse. You got a deal

It's just English.
How hard can it be? Just go learn it

I'm too old for this

If you don't want her,
we have to search again. Can you wait?

Fuck you!

You can work here

Thank you, sir

Give me your passport


That's the way it works

Just give me, safe

Just give me

When you go, I give you passport. Okay?

Yes, sir



By 6th September, 2016

Every morning, move boss from bed to wheelchair

He hates cockroach.
So you must clean really good

After buy food from market,
must show him receipts

He checks really carefully. No cheating

He has no hungry feeling

So three meals must fix time, or he feels dizzy

Help him change diaper everyday

Every other day

You put... the medicine to his asshole

Then wait few hours

He will shit, then you shower him

Everyday massage his leg

Then at 4am you get up help him turn around

Sometimes, he suddenly... you know

Like this, cramping

Don't worry, just wait

Anyway, he looks angry, but he's a good guy

Stop the fucking drilling!

You can holiday on Sundays. Understand?

Understand, sir

How can you say that?

You knew what he has done to me, right?

I won't go back

Maria's lawyer friend
is helping me do the annulment

I know it costs a lot, but this is my freedom

Can't you ask Michael
for the money to fix the roof?

It's also his home, isn't it?

10,000 pesos?

How can I possibly pay that much?

I can't afford it, and I won't pay either

I don't want to talk anymore

9:30am. At HSBC Square

Hello, Ann

lam here at HSBC

Near the lion with the open mouth

Where is everybody?

Chicken feet soup with peanuts

Great, chicken feet soup with peanuts

Yes, took hours to make

Tell your morn not to bother anymore

Don't waste the soup on people like me

Just drink it, I will get you a bowl


Yes, she left early in the morning

You need to find her?

Let's do a porn marathon!

This is Evelyn

We met on Facebook as I said

Hi everyone, I am Evelyn Santos

I'm Lorna

I'm Rhea!

I'm Laura. Nice to meet you!

Let's have lots of fun today

Is it your first time?


You will find many things you don't understand

Feel free to ask us

We might look young

But we've been working here for a long time

I've been here for 15 years.
Ann is the newest?

I've been here for 8 years.
It should be Rhea?

Yes, 4 years for me

Planning to do it long term?

I don't know yet

Think about that while you work

You can learn everything else slowly

But there's one thing
you must do correctly from the start

Here it comes! Lama's classroom

The most important rule

Always pretend you are dumb!

She is all tied up!

This is professionalism

If you're told to do tedious or extra work,
just play dumb

Say if they want their helpers to deliver things

To their friends or to their office

At times like this,
you have to play dumb and say

Ma'am, I don't know how to take the MTR

Sir, I don't know my way

If not, you'll spend hours doing extra work

And still have to do your daily chores

I get it

My boss still thinks I don't know
how to take the MTR

Me too

How would I not know after 10 years?
And they actually believe that!

You know what they think of Filipinos?

They think we're stupid

That's fine by me, I do less work

Also, never learn Cantonese

Or don't let them know if you do


So we can play dumb

Miss home?

You will get used to it

Now when I go home,
I miss Hong Kong instead

Me too

Ann, you are not like Lorna

Lorna misses her boss

She's been taking care of the old lady
for more than a decade

You? You just miss your employer's big mansion!

Your boss is never home

You're the luckiest one

Try cleaning such a big place all by yourself

That's why you are in shape

That's fair

But I am really lucky

I don't have to take care of kids or the elderly

Rhea is taking care of kids

Lorna is taking care of an old lady

Their bosses are all middle-class families.
What about yours?

He lives in public housing

He is divorced and lives by himself

And he is disabled

That's not bad

Newcomers usually start with employers
that are not so well-off

Taking care of one person shouldn't be too hard

But What is his disability?

He is paralyzed from his chest down

He can move his hands, but with limited flexibility

How long have we been watching this?

Must've been 3 to 4 hours already

I'm nauseous

I can't stand it too. Let's take a break

Yes, please

"Talking to Your Domestic Helper in English"

Wing, are you really learning English now?

I have to

We barely understand each other

How is the Filipino maid doing?

Just alright

She is careless with chores

But her cooking is horrible

She made me lose my appetite

Lucky you!

Just teach her. University graduates learn quickly

Are you kidding?

A university graduate has to become a maid?

It's not rare!

Ask me before you hire the next one

You want her to leave already?

Maybe this one will stay for long

She'd better

So you have to clean his poo and pee then?

Hurry up and find another employer!

Actually it is not that bad

My previous job was similar

You really should find another boss

It should be easy to find someone better

We will help you keep an eye on it

But for now,
you must be careful and not get fired

Or else you'll have to go back to the Philippines

It's a waste of time



Why won't they start?

- To buy time
- Good evening, sir

Evelyn, hello

Why are you dressed like a tourist?

I don't understand, sir

Never mind, go, go, go!

- Go!
- Yes, sir

They are just standing still doing nothing

Just waiting for the ball

Look, he is going to fall

Get the ball, get it!

Impossible, they have a strong defense

Go that way, idiot!

Goal! Great job!

Hey, you, clean there

I don't understand, sir?

You no clean there

Okay, sir

You have not cleaned that corner

I don't understand, sir

Really? Are you bad at English too?

Oh, I know

You have friends here?

What do you mean, sir?

You are not stupid

I'm stupid, sir. I'm sorry

Damn it

Bloody hell, you're a pain in the arse

- Sorry, sir
- And you said you were a nurse?

Sorry, we really can't arrange that

Without an air mattress

He will get inflammation overnight

Are you going to turn him every 4 hours?

We are short on staff, it can't be arranged

Then let the maid stay

My apologies, sir

What happened this time?

He broke his leg

Is that serious, nurse?

He's alright. He'll be discharged tomorrow

Nurse, please check again

If he's fine, I'm leaving

You're not going to check on him?

Visiting hours have passed anyway

Persuade him to install a safety bell

He won't spend the money


You have to look after sir

How can you let him fall?

Ma'am, I am Evelyn, I am new here

She is new

This is sir's sister

Fine, just make sure you do your job carefully

Otherwise, you will be fired

Sir, please don't fire me

I really need this job

She bullshit, no need listen

Wait here

What you doing?

Nothing, sir




Are you scared that I will fire you?

Please don't fire me

Add Oil!


Yes, it means work hard!

Good night, sir

Good night

One more thing

You November“ to dean the floor

All the floor

Yes, sir


I will clean very well. Clean now, sir?

No now, look at the time. Tomorrow

Okay, thank you, sir. Good night

Good night

Sorry, sir, I forgot to turn off the light


Sir, I really want to work here. Good night

Okay! No fire you! Hurry!

Why is this not cleaned again?

Yes, sir

Yes... yes... but you never clean

You are really a big "cha Bo"

"Cha Bo"? Sir, I don't understand


You are big "cha Bo". "Cha Bo"!

"Cha Bo"!

Whatever, you're a big "cha Bo"

Ah, "trouble"


Sir, you even learn Japanese?

Everyday greeting



Excuse me, that one

"Chinese lettuce, 1 catty"


No, please, the lettuce how much?

Correct, correct! You go!

It is too expensive, I cannot buy it

No! You are blocking everyone!

But I...

What are you staring at?

Then the receipt, give me the receipt!

No! You're just a small customer

They say they'll boycott them,

but they are still hiring them

They're everywhere on Sundays.
How irritating!

Very good. Now, your arms are strong

Very good

Sir, thank you very much for letting me stay here

What does that mean?


Sir, is it okay?

No feeling

Sorry, sir

It is okay

Sir, painful? Sir, sorry!

Gotcha! It's a joke, I'm teasing you

No feeling

Sir! Not funny!

Okay. Not funny. Massage

If no massage, the muscle will "suk"

"Suk", you know?

Sorry, sir, I don't understand

How can you not understand "suk"? It's simple

What is "suk" in English? "Uncle"?

No, "short"!

Sir, why don't you teach me Cantonese?

I want to learn

Teach you Cantonese, you clean floor good?

Yes, sir

Okay! I teach you Cantonese. What you learn?

Maybe start with something simple first

How to say "thank you"?

"Thank you"

Okay, two ways

One way, little help,

you say "ng goi'

"Ng goi"

"Ng goi"

Very good. Then two way is for big help...


Sir, slow down, it is too dangerous!

You are too young to be "sei guare"!

"Sei guare"? Sir, what is that?

Sei guare is "sei guare"

"Sei guare"...

Sorry, sorry, sorry!

"Sei guare"... Ah! "Scared"!


"Wang Chun-yin calling"


Long time no see!

Dad, you can speak English now?

I have to communicate with my helper

So I started learning it

Are you still busy?

Just done with an exam.
I can finally rest a bit

But I'll have another exam soon

So, Dad, how are you?

Just the same old shit

I missed hearing you cuss

I've learnt some English swear words too


Son of a bitch!

Cool, isn't it?


If Morn hears it, you are dead

I told you to knock first, Morn

Who's that?

It is Leung Cheong-wing

Yes, it's Dad

How are you guys?

Same old, same old

We're in New York for a week

Then we're heading back to Beijing

I was wondering where you were

Turns out you guys are video chatting

Wing, how are you?

Hong, long time no see

Mom and Pop, why are you both in my room?

We'll head down first

We'll wait in the car. Take care, Wing

Take care. See you


lam graduating in May

My smart boy!

Will you come to my graduation?

I'd like you to come

No, look at me

Are they going?


Then that's okay

You should go, they are waiting for you

I will send you the details later

Okay, talk later. I am going to bed

Get some rest


How was it?

It was fine

I have to retake my exams until I get in

Sorry, I dragged you down

It's not you, it's me who screwed up

Dad is useless

You've always been a great student

If it weren't for my accident, you wouldn't...

I've already said it's not your fault!

Sir, you okay?

Okay, okay, very good

My son, he is becoming a "yee sun" as he wishes

"Yee sun"?



He wants me to go USA to see him

Oh, great! When?

No, I no go

Go! Why not?

Look at me, ugly.
He will lose face. No good

No, don't say that

He just wants to share his happiness with his family

His family... He has new father, you know?

No, he wants you, his father,
to see his dream coming true

Dream? What do you know about dream?

I know

If my dream comes true,
I want my family to see it too

Your dream?
You're a maid, what's there to dream?

I was just trying to make you feel better

You didn't have to say that

No say, no say. You work

Yes, sir

Sir, are you okay?


Sir, why didn't you call me?

You were sleeping.
It's okay, no feeling, same same

No, sir. It is not the same

Please call me next time. Any time is okay

Okay, okay

Promise me, sir

Okay, I promise. Get me up

Wait, sir

Wait for what? Just get me up

Hey! What are you doing?

Sir, one, two, three

Sir, what's wrong?

What's wrong? Just look at me

Everything is wrong

I am rubbish

I just eat and shit my pants

I am a burden

I was just passing by, why me?

I was just passing by

Sir, there are many things we cannot explain

You got unlucky, very unlucky

But it is not your fault

It's not your fault

You cannot choose not to sit on wheelchair

But you can choose how to sit on it

You no luck, take care rubbish man

Sir, I was a nurse

I once helped deliver a baby

She was born deaf and blind.
Can you understand?

What is "deaf and blind"?

She can't see and can't hear

How miserable


Life is very unfair. But still, she is not rubbish

I read a book about a girl
called "Hoi Lun Hoi Lak" (Helen Keller)

"Hoi Lun Hoi Lak", no?
No understand? Same

Such a person exists?

I can't remember English name.
But in real life, very famous

See? No rubbish

Sorry, I laugh your dream

Thank you, sir

Tell me, what is your dream?


What? What... phy?

Sir... take photo


How about you, sir?

What is your dream?

Me? No dream. Just a loser

No dream

I'll take your piece

Help me buy a camera when you're free

What camera?

Those with SLR, DSLR, or something like that

I want a professional but light one

I found a few online

I'll send you the details

They cost a lot, are you sure?

Is that your new hobby?

Stop asking questions, it's a gift

- For Jing-ying?
- No

- Chun-yin?
- No

So who is it for?

You're so nosy!

It's for the helper, it's her birthday soon

She asked for it?

No! She doesn't know!

Your compensation is barely enough for yourself!

She says she has a dream and I just want to help

I don't have much to spend on anyway

Jing-ying and Chun-yin don't need my help


She's taking good care of you, it's worth it

I'll do it tomorrow after work

It's your turn


I win again

That girl is unlucky

How can she get beaten up
just by stealing a few meatballs?

Hope she gets well soon

Glad we all have nice employers

You're right

By the way, Evelyn

My friend says there's a rich family
looking for a good helper

Are you interested?

The pay is higher, and the workload should be less

Thanks, but I'm good

Why? It's not difficult to change employers

How should I put it?

It's just that my boss isn't bad

He is kind

His wife and son left him,
probably didn't want to take care of him

If I also leave, who will take care of him?

Evelyn, you don't have to be so nice

We are here just to work

They always say

"We treat you like family"

But do they really think so?

You don't have to feel pressured

At least we know her employer cannot hit her

Sorry, Lorna

It's okay, tell me when you need it

Just remember,
never get too emotionally attached

It's just work

Give it a try

If they ever pick on you, you do this!

With me by your side,
there's nothing to worry about

One, two, three!

Sir, what happened?

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to... Lin... Evelyn

Happy birthday to you!

Thank you, sir

Sir, this is too expensive, I cannot accept it

Can, or I will be angry

Thank you, sir!

It is charged, you can use it right away

You should thank Fai. He buy, I pay

It is alright

Say "thank you" in Cantonese


"Thank you so fucking much"!

Evelyn, don't say that!

It's wrong!

You're such a jerk. Why did you teach her that?

What happened, sir?

Nothing, very good

"Thank you so fucking much"? It is mean!

Don't take photo of me!

C'mon! We never took any photos before!

The balloon?

I almost caught it

We'll get you a new one

You can't ride on the wheelchair. Please get off

Get off

Everybody does it

You must be very busy today

Very good!

No, sir, thank you

I've always wanted to say it

Don't call me "sir". Call me Cheong-wing


What are those?

Old photos from the Philippines

Who is this?

That is my mother, sir... no, Cheong-wing

What are these people doing?

They are dancing

What is "dancing"?



Oh, dancing!



You made soup again?

Yes, I've saved some for you

What's the point of doing all this?
Will he even thank you?

I don't need him to thank me,
drink your soup!

Here you go, she's really good at this

Even your ugly face looks good in her photo

You're more handsome than me

Hello, good morning!

What would you like?

One, two, three

Hello, Maria?

"FCSC Photography Awards - Register and upload"

Hello, I need to transfer some money


Look your phone

"FCSC Photography Awards - Register and upload"

No... I'm not good enough for this

Good enough! Good!

Maybe later

No later! It is now or never!


Why is this moving so slowly?

Have you gained weight?




I forgot to charge it!

- Sorry! Sorry!
- How could you!


Harder! Harder!

Super woman!



Very strong!

And you said you hadn't gained weight?

If not, how did you get so strong?

What is this word?

This is "f00k"

It means happy, good and lucky

Very good. For New Year

It's beautiful

I only know how to write this word in calligraphy

I learnt it from a neighbor when I was young

But my family was poor

So I had to work, no time.
This is the only word I learnt


No! No! No! Put down

It's wet

Wait till tomorrow


No blow, no blow!

You blow the luck away! No blow! "Fook" will go!

No, no this one

This one for you, better

Thank you

Up, up, up

Turn the "fook"

Turn? Like this?


Why? If you turn the "fook", "fook" will come

"Fook" will come



Very good

She's here

Kung Hey Fat Choi

Kung Hey Fat Choi

- Have a seat
- Thank you

For you

You shouldn't have, as long as you're here


Here's a red pocket for you

These are for you, your husband, and Fung

I've told you not to give me any money

Just save it for yourself

It's not just money, it's a blessing

Who'd refuse blessings on New Year? Just take it

How are they? Why aren't they joining us?

You know they won't

Who else is eating with us?

What do you mean? Just the three of us

Are you serious? It's New Year

I'm sorry, Ma'am, I will eat in the kitchen

Why not? If we live together, we eat together

You want her to eat alone on New Year?

We didn't eat with the previous maids

I will eat in the kitchen

Evelyn! Get some food, chicken...

I'm okay, sir


Let's eat

Have some chicken

It's alright...


It's okay, I'll clean up in the bathroom

I have to go,
I need to visit my mother-in-law

Already? Finish eating first

It's fine, there will be food too

Wait, let's take a photo


There's no need

Come over, take a photo together

No this one! Use the camera

I... sorry

I don't want any photo, I'm in a hurry



Stay longer next time


Where is the camera?

Why didn't you use the camera?


I lost it. I can't find it. Sorry

When did you lose it? Where did you lose it?

Why didn't you tell me?

The receipt is really gone

Go in there!

Hey, come over, what is this?

Is this some sort of price?

It's CAD2,500... no, it's 25,000

It is a university admission letter

For photography, but it has expired


She transferred $10,000 to the Philippines. Look!

I'm back

Receipts of today

We live in Oi Man,
why do you shop at Hung Horn?

Do they give you some kind of commission?

No, Cheong-wing

They are cheaper, our market is expensive

I always get deceived!

You got deceived?

I wonder who's deceiving who!

"Should I start looking for a new maid?"

Dinner is ready

I will eat in the kitchen,
please come out and eat here

Good night, Cheong-wing

Fire! Cheong-wing, we have to go!

You g0, you 9°

You go alone


You can be angry, okay?

If you're angry, fire me!

But not now, there's a real fire!

If it's real fire, then I'm dead.
I can't escape for sure

We have to run

You go. You go alone

I'm not going without you!

Don't bother with me

Put me down! Put me down!

Fake fire! Exercise! Put me down!

You look look, calendar

Not real fire

It scared me

"The fire drill will be held
at 10am on 7th February"

I angry you, Yes

Fire you, no

I am angry with why you bye bye your dream

Because I cannot dream now

Why? You don't like photo?

I really like. But reality is harsh

Living cannot wait, but dreams can

lam a maid now. I am okay like this

I will "add oil" and be a good help

I make breakfast now, sir

Hello? Fai?


Camera... I am really sorry

You found the camera?

I'm really sorry for what I did

What are you talking about? I don't understand

You didn't have to do it

Thank you, thank you very much

That's good you found it! Keep taking photos

Keep 90mg

If so, the chance of getting an offer again is high

So does she need to state that
she got admitted last year?

Yes, put that in the personal statement

What's that?

It's a self-introduction that explains why

you wanna enroll in this subject

It's an essay

Yeah? Okay?



Nice to meet you

"Personal Statement Letter for
Bachelor of Photography"

What do you want to be when you grow up?

This point is not strong enough

We have to make them sympathize with her

I really don't understand why
you're still helping her

She must have her reasons

I trust that she is a good person

You trust a maid?

She takes care of me everyday and lives with me

If I don't trust her, then who should I trust?


Here, you've spelt "sincerely" wrong!

Don't check the dictionary.
I know how to spell it!


Okay, okay

It's impossible for us to finish this letter

We'd better ask Chun-yin to help

He's very busy

Let's get this done, correct "sincerely" first

I can't think of a title for these photos

Can you help me think of one?

One title? But they are all different

It's a collection,
can't you see anything in common?

They are all human beings

They are all dreaming


I take them because of you

Because me? Why?

So that you can see anyone can dream

Okay, I'll think of a title

"The petitions are approved"

"The marriage annulment is affirmed"

This will look great on you! No, this is better!

- No, I Have To save up
- I'll take care of it! Just try it

Hello, these are my friends!


Cheers! Happy Ladies' Night!

Also, let's celebrate Evelyn's freedom!

I have heard of it before

But I never knew anyone
who actually got an annulment

Yes, it is costly.
Many would just live separately

It's all in the past now

Look for a good man and start all over

Good man?

Yes, a good man can
change your life for the better

What? You're exaggerating!

Remember I told you about Carmen?

She used to work for a middle-class family

She married a white banker.
Now she lives in the mid-levels

Richer than her previous boss

And she has her own maid!

You've said this many times before

We don't even know if this Carmen exists

Evelyn, if we work hard,

we can be "Carmen" too

I don't want to be Carmen.
I just want to be myself

Many terrible things can happen
in a relationship that lacks love

Without love,
he can hit you simply because he's not happy

He can make you liable to all his debts

He can force you to give up on your dreams

I don't want to get into
a relationship without love again

If the person I love loves me the same

He doesn't need to give me anything

I'd rather accomplish what I want to do on my own

Yes, I agree

Although my husband is not rich,
I'm happy with him

Now I just want to take care of
my own children

instead of someone else's

Well, for me...

I just hope that when I go back some day

My husband and son won't treat me as a stranger

But can you accept that
our children will grow up...

To be the maids of those girls' children?

We have to make changes

Out of 100 poor women,

maybe only 1 can succeed on her own

I don't have any talents,
I can only think of getting a reliable man

1 out of 100

I don't know if we're that one woman

But we're definitely within the 100!


Today we are no different than them

We all can dance!

Let's dance!

"Wang Chun-yin - Busy"

Dad, why are you calling so late?

Son, did I wake you?

No, I'm working on my thesis

Have you read the personal statement
I emailed you few days ago?

Sorry Dad, I'm too busy to help

Help me out, the deadline is tomorrow

Your friend is old enough to do it herself, right?

She doesn't know I'm applying for her

How is that possible?

Applying for university
isn't as simple as you think!

You need a transcript and other documents

She has to submit a portfolio

for subjects like art. You can't help

What are "transcript" and "buffalo"?

"Transcript" is results from public exams,

like English exams

"Portfolio" is a collection

of her work organized as a book

Those who study art need it for
school and job applications

It is like... their resume

You can't make it in time now

Ask her to prepare it herself next year, okay?

Okay, girls,
it's the most important moment of the night

You don't have to do it

Okay, one, two, three!

Rock paper scissors!

Damn it

Thank you

Five hundred

Eight hundred


I'm going this way, bye


Morn, why can't you find another way?

I don't have that much money

I can't do that

Mom, you can't do this

Who made you cry?

Sorry, Cheong-wing. Am I too loud?

Who made you cry?

My mother doesn't want to see me again

Asshole! Give it to me, the phone

Why don't you love your daughter? Why?

Who is this?

I'm the boss!


How come she knows Cantonese too?

I worked in Hong Kong for twenty years

Thank you for hiring my daughter

But I don't want her to be there anymore

She has to come home and take care of her family

Not to spend her money on divorce and photography

All parents want the best for their children

But you don't get to define what's best for her.

She has her own feelings!

It's none of your business!

It's for her own good

If she doesn't come back,
I will disown her as my daughter!

You're ridiculous! She won't give a damn

She will disown you too! Don't ever call back!

Don't worry, mothers aren't always right!

Don't worry, I'm here for you, don't cry

2 catties of lettuce, please

Excuse me, how heavy is this?
I wanted 2 catties

Yes, 2 catties

No, this is less than 2 catties

What's wrong with you?

Are you accusing me? Go away!

You're blocking everyone!

Don't come back then!

Please weigh it again

I'm watching you!
You didn't give her enough lettuce

That's not 2 catties! Weigh again if you dare!

Apples are fresh today. You love apples, right?

How do you say "love" in Cantonese?


No, it's different.
"Love" is more than "like"!

"Chi la sin" (Crazy)

"Chi la sin"? Really?

"Chi la sin", "chi la sin"

What now? Are you two together?

What are you talking about?

Is she my sister-in-law now?


She is your maid, aren't you disgusted?

Or would you be with any woman?

Aren't maids human beings?
Have some respect


So it's okay for you to date a maid

But I can't be with a hairdresser, right?

These are two different things

I raised you,
of course I wouldn't want you to suffer!

Who's suffering now?

Where is my Octopus card?

Ma'am, it's in the flat,
do you want me to get it now?

No need for now

Just let me remind you,
you are here to do your job!

Forget it, let him cool off

Let's eat

So what did Jing-ying say?

Most things she says are nasty and rude

I don't even want to see her!

Why do you hate her so much?

She has no conscience!

Their father abandoned them
and their mother died early

Cheong-wing raised her

He paid for her education instead of his own

Why are you so nice to Cheong-wing?

I came from the Mainland
when I was in secondary school

I had no friends, and my Cantonese was horrible

I dropped out of school

And became a construction worker

Luckily, I was assigned to his team

He didn't mind my upbringing
and treated me as his family

So it's my turn to take care of him

I don't know how long I can do it for

I will just do it as long as I can

I know he wants his family by his side

But what can I do?
His family is no more than strangers


This is Ma'am's, she came for this

Thank you, Fai

Get him to eat, bye

The temperature will further drop to -1°C

Yesterday, 76 elderlies were hospitalized

due to the cold weather

Disabled elderlies living alone

are most vulnerable under this weather

We should care for our families
and elderly neighbors

During this extreme weather

It's cold tonight

You have to eat

I'll do it myself

Are you okay?


Sorry about her nonsense

It's okay

I don't want you to be unhappy

Let's just forget about it

Tell me when you're done, I'll do the dishes first


What happened, Evelyn?

Help! I fell down! I can't get up!

Safety Bell Hotline

We're back

I'm back!

Welcome back

How are you?

Good, you okay?



No feeling

No feeling? Like me?

You two are hilarious

One can't use her hands,
one can't move his legs

You're both disabled

I have to serve both of you, right?

Can I take your order now, sir?

What do you want to eat?

Fried rice?


Are you free on 15th April?
It's a Saturday

I just sit here everyday, of course I'm free

Can you go with me?

What is this?

I got in! The competition!
I just saw the email!


Can I get the day off?

Of course

You haven't replied me yet



Come. No, no... Turn

Your hair is a mess


That's more beautiful



You spent too much effort on me,
today is all about you

Because I look good already

Yes, yes, already

So handsome

What an artist! You made me look handsome

Good taste


Don't underestimate these flowers

When dried, it's a Chinese medicine

After the flowers drop,
cotton will carry the seeds in the wind

It looks like snow

And the cycle starts again somewhere else

It must be beautiful

Hello, I'm Evelyn Santos

Thank you

See you at the waiting area, thank you

I have to go over there


Call me if you need me

Okay, okay. You go, I'm okay

And the Special Mention Award goes to
Miss Evelyn Santos

Cassandra, please

A Filipino maid?
How can a maid be qualified? It's crazy


Don't mind them, she's definitely qualified


Very nice photo, Mr. Dream Giver

No, I'm Mr. Leung

Mr. Leung, I'm Cassandra.
Nice to meet you

Nice to meet you

Thank you

Excuse me

Very powerful photo, isn't it?

Yes, humans can be so fragile

But even at the most fragile moments, don't forget

We can be very strong

Congratulations on your award

Thank you

I saw your photo, it was great

I was also a domestic helper many years ago

That doesn't limit who you can become

That's great

Professor Lumaban!

Keep going, sky is the limit

- You are here!
- Carmen, long time no see!


The best restaurant in Hong Kong!

- Looks Good
- Have a seat

Aren't you Cheong-wing?

Yes, you are... Keung?

What's with all the construction?

They're kicking us out for redevelopment soon

You haven't been here for a while?

Table for two?

Who else do you see?

I saved up some money that year

I planned to go on a trip with my family

To celebrate my son's secondary school graduation

I really looked forward to it

But it never happened

No, you can still do it

If you go to his graduation,
you can still travel with them

No, not the same

I don't want him to take care of me
at his graduation

I don't want to humiliate him

The day belongs to his current family

I have to accept the reality

Now that I think of it, other than that trip

I don't have any other dreams

But when I see you take photos

I begin to realize that it's good to have dreams

This motivates me to search for something

Then I'll search with you

No need, just focus on what you want to do

People seldom get to do what they love

I want to see you happy

"Thank you so fucking much"!

I should be the one thanking you so fucking much

I want to let you know

I'm ready

I can say goodbye anytime

Don't fire me, I'll clean the floor really well

You know what I mean

I'm stupid

No, you are not stupid


Put it away before it gets dirty

Come here more often

More food? We ordered too much!

No, it's a celebration

It's not easy to find another

Stop it, just help me with the English


How are you?



Sit, please

This is...


- Yes?
- Do me a favor


Although I can't go to his graduation

I can still order a gift for my son

Why are you so smart? What do you want to send?

I see people graduate with flower bouquets

Help me order some

Good idea! It looks good in photos


Then help me order online, I trust you

What's on your mind?


You buy flower?


My son flower

It's done

What are you doing?


Why are your hands so dirty?

"Wang Chun-yin - Calling"

Congratulations, my son! Proud of you!

Thank you, Dad

They're beautiful

Bring them with you.
Take more photos for me, okay?

Got it

Dad, wait

Just a second

Dad, how do I look?

Of course you look handsome, you're my son

You're the first to see me in my graduation gown

Okay, you look good enough

Take more photos, don't be late

Not yet, I have something else to tell you

I have planned my graduation trip

For my final summer vacation

I'm going to Oi Man Estate,
Sun Man House, Flat 836

I wonder if you'll join me?

It's your vacation,

Why'd you choose to come back?

It's time, hurry up

Okay! Corning!

Dad, I have to go

Okay, okay

Help me thank the person who ordered the flowers

I really have to go


I will join!

Come home, come home

Okay, let's talk later, bye bye

Have you girls heard about Grace?

The one with a mole here


My friend said she slept with her boss

How can they develop this kind of relationship?

Is she really in love? Or was it just a fling?

Lorna, what happened? Why are you so late?

It's finally time to go home to my son

I'm going back to the Philippines

Why? Did you do something wrong and get fired?

That's really cruel

It's been more than a decade,
how can they just fire you?

Ma'am died!

I miss her so much,
she's the best person in the world

I miss her!

"Thank you for your kind offer..."

"I am very sorry"

You go back London today?

Let me talk to Evelyn

Before 4pm, okay

Okay, thank you

Were you asking for me?

Deliver a document for me

Okay, when?

Now! Take a taxi, get there before 4pm

Very important


Not in these clothes! Go change!

Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui, please

It was like a dream

Hey, thank you

What for? Why so out of the blue?

You've always been by my side
in spite of my craziness

And for many years to come

I thought there was nothing to
look forward to anymore

But it turns out, life has more to offer

Sorry for not arriving earlier

I really thought I couldn't see you before I leave

Have a seat

Looks like Mr. Leung
did a great job convincing you

That's the portfolio?





It's okay


I "chi la sin" you!

"Chi la sin"
