Shi-ying ( Sung Yuhua ), a university freshman who works at a cafe . Here, she meets with A Bu-si ( Megan Lai ), a lesbian who is a professional coffee maker who can make any types of coffee drinks according to customers’ order, the shop’s proprietress ( Vivian Chow ) who talks less and loves to be alone and sitting in a constant seat most of the time, and Ze-Yu ( Marcus C ), who was the partner of the shop’s female owner .
As usual, director Giddens Ko starts off his second installment of the love trilogy with the same hilarious, ridiculous yet unnecessary style of humors but luckily, unlike You’re the Apple of My Eyes, it only takes one quarter of the film. Plot wise, it is a simple and straightforward love story taking place in café and college, the tone is generally delightful with balanced jokes, interchanging with some emotional flashbacks and surprisingly rapidly progressing into a twisted climax. Though leading by young casts, both Vivian Sung and Bruce work hard to present a sweet and charming chemistry, at the the same time supported by the amazing performance from Vivian Chou and several other strong supporting cast, as well as lovely scores throughout the entire film. Overall, it inspires that love is not perfect and not always ended happily, but combining the elements of courageous, sacrifice, patience and forgiveness, it will turns into happiness in life, making it one of the most emotional and epic love story ever for an Asian production.
