Auntie Lai passed away last month.

So? She still needs to eat, doesn't she?

We prepare exactly 28 bowls of

glutinous rice every day.

Who is this order for?

I'll cook these myself. On the house.

If it wasn't for Brother Yau's generosity,

you would be charged double for that!

House special kale and fried ribs.

Two bowls of congee! Split two ways.

Auntie Mui.

Wait a minute. I'll be right there.

Auntie Lai, you should be on your way now

after you have had a good meal.

You should eat while it's hot.

Why do you have your food split two ways?

I have diabetes,

and I can't eat salt. Doctor's orders.

Yau is very kind.

He makes two portions for me.

One half is regular. The other is low sodium.

So it's good for both my husband and I.

- Is the steamed rice ready?

- F*ck off.

He's not as kind as Auntie Mui though.

She's an angel.

She helps out by sewing everyone's clothes.

She takes care of the kids in the building.

Cooks and helps with groceries too.

Listen to all those sweet words.

What is it you need this time?

Can you alter the waist a bit?

Yes, of course.

But please don't let Uncle Tung know.

Last time he found out,

he was telling me off the whole way home.

Have to get back to work.

I don't want to piss my boss off.

Are you good with sewing?

Not really.

I have nothing else to do. So...

I look for something to do.

Just trying to help where I can.

Do you have clothes that need repairing?


I have some old film costumes

from my movies.

I've kept them for years.

It's a pity how damaged

they have become over the years.

I can help you...

so you can keep them in better condition.

So... how long are you planning to stay here?

Why do you ask?

Nothing really.

I'm sorry for being nosy.

Have you noticed anything

in apartment 2442?
