Do you believe in witches?

That they'll give up being a witch for love?

Meet Barbra,

the witch of every man's dreams

But that was eight years ago

Since dating kidult Sam,

she has lost her powers

Now, her life is dedicated to

taking care of him

I've been waiting for half an hour

I'm ready

Thank you

Thank you

Thank you

Here's your oyster congee

Enjoy your meal

Sir

The scallions? I'll take them off

Their love story isn't epic

Shared showers, removing scallions,

wiping bottles

Butthafslove

What more do you want?

Towel, please

Get it yourself

Hurry. It stinks!

I can't reach it

Hurry

I can't go over there. Hurry

While dating

Barbra is a champion of a sport...

Called "Mixed Breakup Singles"

Is it good?

Yes

How is this different from yesterday's?

The bacon... is too fatty

And the bread?

The bread?

It's okay

OK!

Do you know where I bought the bread?

Do you know how much I spent?

How long I spent waiting in line?

I went at dawn

It cost $45

And it's just okay?

Get off that thing!

Just so you know, we've broken up

I just came to see if you're still alive

Quit the wet puppy look

I'll take you to the doctor's

then I'm going

Let me remind you: we've broken up

I'm ready to go

Which do you think is better?

Spin around

This one

Let's go

What's wrong with this one?

It's fine, too

But I like this colour

Maybe we should just shower and go to bed

I can't stand your attitude! Let's break up

Every time they break up

Sam has to give in on...

everything before Barbra will agree to make up

This makes Barbra sound evil

But when Sam said he wanted to open this cafe...

Barbra quit her job and found a space

even though she had told him off

And who am I?

I'm the cafe

My name is LA... LA...

Sorry, I don't read French

It means "I love you"

As to why I look like this on my first day...

it's all because of these bad influences

Last night, they had too good a time

Hurry and pack

A dead body!

Over there

Thanks to our coffee-maker,

we can open for business

To work!

You're open already?

Today is our first day

Thanks

May I sit here?

Sure

What is the name of this cafe?

It's called LA Je t'aime

A French place

Yes

Then I'd like a French toast and a latte

What's wrong?

The shop's coffee machine broke

This is from home

The Four Boys are MIA

How can we do business? I'll talk to him

Calm down

It's our first day; why turn down business?

Make his coffee. It'll be fine

I'll handle this

I got an idea. Go make his coffee

Priscilla's Eatery

Yes

One very French French toast;

anything else?

Address, please?

Po Hing Fong

That's close by, about ten minutes

The back entrance?

Okay, thank you!

Uncle Three, French toast takeout

Who orders French toast in the morning?

We're busy. Tell him to call back at tea-time

Yeah! Who orders French toast so early?

So I'll make it myself

Uncle Tam

Delivery to Po Hing Fong. Thanks

I'm busy

Fine. I'll deliver it myself.

Here it is

You ordered French toast?

Yes, how much?

$20, please

Here's $25. Thanks

What a cute place!

- Come by soon

- Did you just open?

Yes

All the best to you

Thank you

This is hideous

It needs some garnish

Put this on top

What do you think?

No

Let me fix it

Excuse me

Cookies won't work.

- Take them off

- Who is she

- Deliveryman

- Give me some fruit. Do you have fruit?

I need a napkin for my hands, please. Thanks

There! it's beautiful!

Your French toast

Thank you

This is me, Priscilla.

Hello

Call me Brother P

Barbra

Hello, Barbra

It's like eating a custard

So tender and soft

You must have made it

the classic way

And this coffee

Clear layers, luscious foam...

Fragrant and smooth

Who knew coffee could be such a joy?

I give you four stars

Thanks

It's better than Priscilla's

What is this place called?

LA Je t'aime

It's mine and my girlfriend's

The name is her idea

How romantic!

But you have misspelled it

In French, the "LA"

Should go after "Cafe"

Now, it's just LA Cafe

And "je t'aime"

is missing an apostrophe and an "m"

Now, it's "jetaie"

And "taie" is French for "pillowcase"

And what does that make it?

The Pillowcase of LA Cafe

Pillowcase

Correct it:
add the apostrophe and the "m"

The light is about to change

It's red! You keep jaywalking

you'll get killed

See? We've crossed. We're still alive

It's critical:
the coffee beans must be fresh

The coarseness of grind

- must match the degree of roast

- I want to order something

Take her order

Don't bother me. I'm busy

I want to order food

Thanks, please come again

M-may... I... help... you...?

Corning

I'm getting it. I can balance, look...

- That looks like fun

- a latte, thanks

- May I see the menu?

- Yes, right away

Thanks

The grind is too fine

Let me try again

Let me play

One look and you know they are winners, right?

Yes, they are the stars of our show,

the Four Boys

In the beginning,

we had someone else in mind

I can brew coffee

I can make latte art

I can bake pastries

I can't do anything, but...

I have 60,000 online fans: that's free publicity

Great!

When can you start?

Don't call us; we'll call you

Water temperature is very important

Perfection is 90 degrees on the dot

So...

Can you three make coffee?

Make latte art?

Bake pastries?

We can learn

But do we get paid extra?

Don't call us; we'll call you

You start next week

But the prize for
