Monthly payments are burdensome.

Well, Mrs. Lee you are just being humble!

Your husband and you are

working professionals.


we already got our hands

full with the new flat.

Let's talk later. Bye.

Ok, bye.

BRIC? What is it?

Brazil, Russia, India and China.

No, thanks.

I didn't know Indonesia exports bricks.

It's INDIA. Not Indonesia.

Aren't they the same?

Not interested. I want your calendars,

and New Year red pockets.

What's my credit card points?

When would they expire?

How do I redeem the rewards?

I want to get the TV in

your promotional offer.

Our card center can assist you.

Please hold.

Nice tan, Yuen.

Three-day trip to Thailand.

Special discount. $750,

all inclusive.

I didn't pay a cent.

And got myself a free pen.

It's a beauty.

It's gold-plated.

It's yours.


Here's HK93.15 million deposited

into your account.

Discount doesn't come often.

Next time I'll let you know

when there's another discount.



Yuen, I looked into your account.

Can I have a coffee?

Bring me a coffee.


You have quite a bit of cash in the account.

Ever considered investing them?

I have a unit trust to recommend.

We have a newly launched fund.

Bank charges will rip me off.

It's only 2%.

This unit trust's portfolio is...

diversified among 20 stocks

in BRIC countries.

- 20 stocks?

- Yes.

If I invest HK$2 million,

If I invest online,

each transaction costs 2 US dollars.

True, but...

- 40 dollars for 20 stocks.

- Right...

Or roughly 320 HK dollars.

But, if you buy...

That's still less than 40 thousand.

Isn't your bank ripping me off?


we take care of your investment for you.

I could take care of you.

Business is all about profits,

but you got play fair.

Credit card charges up to 35% interest.
