It's been a while since

we've seen each other

Do you still remember?

What you were like in the past?

I'm too busy to be thinking about this

We still live our lives as usual

We all live so identically

In a way that,

I don't even remember who I am

What I am doing

Things in the past are fading

Leaving only...

Leaving only...

I don't even know what is left behind

I don't know you that well

I'm not forcing you to sell the property

We can discuss this together

since we were classmates

Frankly speaking, isn't it better to

make a quick fortune,

Than to be living here?

I like it this way, so what?

Hey Chan Kat-fa. You were my buddy,

That's why I'm still

patiently talking to you

Are you looking for a fight by

insisting like this?

Come on!

It's been 20 years since I last saw you

and you're still full of anger

Listen to me man,

I'm here today because

your father had agreed to sell this place

He's never mentioned it before

- Yes

- No

He certainly has

Let's ask him




Do you recognise me?

I'm Lee Chi-Kin, the 'Shower head' boy

I've brought you some chicken essence

He's had a stroke, he's not deaf

So here's the thing,

I came to you before inquiring

about the sale of your apartment.

And you agreed to sell it to me

Fai said that he would listen to you.

I just want you to confirm that

this is in fact what happened.

He just said it

He didn't say anything

I heard it, he said no

Stop messing with me

I'm sorry to bother you, Richard

How about this?

Let's make this easier

If you agree to sell, make one sound

If you don't, make two

Isn't that simple?

He made two sounds

Yes, he did. I heard him.

He said "Very much so"

Nope, he told you to go to hell

Come on, don't mess with me like that

No, no... it's the contract!

He said it in Mandarin, "Contract"

Last time I came, I left him the contract

He must have signed it

Find it

- and you'll know it's true

- Enough! Stop messing around

I'm serious. Find it and you'll see

- The contract tells the truth

- You either pay for my service

or you get out of here

Come on man.

If you continue being like this,

I'm gonna beat you up.

Stop the violence, Ok?

We are civilized people

We honour the spirit of the contract

- I'll call the police then.

- Please don't...

I'm sorry, Brother Fai

Sorry that I've never visited you

Since we graduated high school

I've been busy with work, I'm sorry.

However, liberating in the crowd yet

not knowing what it is now...

This is my first photo taken at the studio

You've kept it all these years.

You're such a good friend.

I've always seen you as a friend

No! I wouldn't have a friend like you

No... Please listen to me, Brother Fai

This is so true

It's very important to me

I know that you're reluctant to sell,

But your father promised to sell it to me

Please leave

Let me search for it

- He really promised me

- Get out!

I want my photo taken!

We are closing up now

All right then, I'll sit and wait here

until you open tomorrow

I'm gonna start now...

Hey! Wait!

Don't you destroy the evidence!

Get out

Go wait outside

So what now then?

I said I'd apply for

the working holiday visa before I turn 30

If I don't go this year,

then I'll be too old next year

I'm talking about us

You said we're gonna get married

How are we going to do that

if you don't save up and buy a place?

Marriage and buying a flat are not related

If you want to get married

We'll do the registration tomorrow, okay?

Have you ever thought about our future?

You're just being a pseudo-artist

and going after your so-called "dreams"
