Chung Wen Kai and Haney Goh are total opposites. He is a high-flying insurance actuary, lives a life free of any unnecessary risks. And she is a part-time actress, occasional singer and all-round free spirit! But on Valentine's Day, Cupid has something else in store for them...Flying into Singapore from Taiwan on a tight schedule, Wen Kai is going to ask his girlfriend to marry him. Haney on the other hand is on the prowl for a present for her boyfriend. Their paths cross in a jewellery shop where Wen Kai is looking for a ring. A Valentine's Day promotion is on where couples get 50% discounts off their buys if they shop together. Haney hatches a plan for them to pose as a couple to get their discounts. But their little plan backfires on them big time and throws them into an adventure that spirals into a day of fun, adventure and romance, proving that love lurks in the unlikeliest of places...


The day this reviewer stops believing that true love is going to come by his way will be the day feel good romantic movies like this get made. Really, someone should stop filmmakers from producing fairy tales like this TV movie – they do nothing but create false hope for all the lonely and forlorn folks out there.

Yes, you can count this reviewer in too, because the moment he popped the DVD into the player, he was brought into a make believe world where the impossible, well, is made possible. How else would you explain the male and female protagonists bumping into each other at a jewelry store where they have to pretend to be a couple to get a fifty per cent discount? How else would you explain the two very different people coming together in a twist of events to find love in each other? And most crucially, how else would you explain the very good looking features of the male and female leads?

Well, if there’s anything to characterize a told to death romantic tale of a unlikely couple falling in love, this is it.

Produced by a local production house and supported by the Media Development Authority, this TV movie was broadcast on our free to air channel some time back, and we are guessing that the response was so positive that it guaranteed a DVD release. If nothing else, it only goes to show that there is something in all of us that hopes (most of the time, against hope) that something as wonderful as this Lee Thean Jeen directed movie can happen to us.

Lee is no stranger to the local media industry. His feature debut was the Lunar New Year offering Homecoming, and those who are familiar with the thespian’s works would not be surprised how feel good this 90 minute production is. The production values are commendable – from the well executed cinematography and the eye pleasing set design to the soothing background score and the comfortable editing pace, viewers would not have any trouble sitting through this one.

Besides, who doesn’t like to see a good looking cast in the form of Felicia Chin and Kingone Wang (we kid you not, that’s the dude’s English name)? The supporting cast isn’t too bad either – expect to see familiar faces like Zhang Wen Xiang, Celeste Chong and the ever reliable Samuel Chong.

There may be no surprises or moments that will make you sit up in this fluffy tale about making love happen, but it does its job of making us mere mortals believe that true love is just around the corner.




The movie’s visual transfer is clear and pristine, and is presented in its original Mandarin audio track.
