Man jeuk (Cultured Bird AKA The Sparrow)



Breakfast with coffee.

Coming right up.

Stop shaking your feet.


A sparrow flew into my apartment.

Is it alive?


Not sure what it means.

Mac, do you think it's a sign?

I'd rather think about girls!

That's all you think about.



Which horse will you bet on?

Answer my question.

The sparrow will bring you bad luck.

A friend of a friend bought a flat.

The flat lost 50 % market value

after a sparrow flew in.

He and his wife

both got prostate tumors.

Isn't that bad luck?

Nice story, you can be a storyteller.

I learned everything from you.


Let me take the lead today.

Can you handle it?

You still have a lot to learn.


Watch where you're going.

Sorry Miss, are you alright?

It's okay.

Sound's great.

Sorry. I'll get it For you.

Never mind.

That's Fine, I'll call you.


Here's your share.

It's a lot of money!

This is peanuts.

Ever made over $10,000 a day?

The Fat guy carried big bills on him...

They are Singaporean money.

Trying to be smart?

Think you can do better?

You're not ready to lead.

I want to try.

Get rid of the wallets.

You're not ready!

I'll stash away the Foreign currencies.

Had lunch yet?


Drinks on me.

Thank you.

Come on...


I win.

Place your bets.

Let me take you home.


One more bottle.


Here's your wine.

Wait up.

Call me.

Can you take me to the city?

I'll pay you.


What's your phone number?

I'll call you.

Let's go.

Just had it repaired. It's yours.

My mother gave it to my late wife.

Time For your medicine.

Set it down.

Make sure Mr. Fu takes his medicine.


I'm going out.

What's wrong?

You sound unhappy.

Have you been drinking?

What's wrong?

Get in.

Where to?

Let's go to your place.

I live above there.

The one with curtains.

I often see you.

Why are the photos in black and white?

Colors can be deceiving.

What is it?

A sparrow.

Does it pick pockets like you?

You two are alike.

Let it be.

She'll return to the cage herself.

Can I have it?


Promise me.

Don't let anyone see these photos.

What do you want?

"Chung Chun Lei"

What's so Funny?

What's so Funny?

Get to work!

We are waiting for you.

The bike's yours? It's a piece of crap.

It's broken.

Shut up.

You broke it!pay for it!

But it hurt my back!

I'm not paying!

We'll each throw in $50 For a new one.


Chun Lei, run!

Fried rice.

Mac is in the hospital

getting his wound stitched up.

What happened?

What happened to you?

What about you?

Did either of you...

meet a beautiful woman?

Told you the sparrow brings bad luck.


Get out.

Get out...

Miss, do you need help?

Stay out of this.

No men would want to see a woman harmed.


I'll do anything to protect you.

It's all our fault... Sorry for getting in your way.

Let's go back down.

I didn't know he'd hurt you.


You know they spy on you all the time.

I'm sorry.

Who's behind this?

Mr. Fu is a good man.

He treats me well.

I've lived a good life these years.

Everything I had was the best.

He went out of his way to help me.

I owe him so much.

He's getting older everyday.

I should take care of him.


I should leave him.

To find myself...

A true love.

Help me.


Enough with the excuses.

Don't drag my brothers into this.

Here's your money.

Where are you going?

I want to make the old man pay.

I'm in!

We need to come up with a plan.

Don't go your own ways!

It's me.

I'm sorry.

Mr. Fu Found out... They refused to help.

"Chun Lei, 9340-3777"

Just go home.

Why don't you go home?

Think you're good?
