5th Anniversary


It has been five years since I created Casual TVB to share my passion for TVB. Now, my passion for TVB has faded as the quality of their dramas continuously deteriorates. This year, I only managed to make 78 posts, the vast majority of which were routine drama posts. I thought about quitting on the 5th anniversary of this blog, but I still enjoy the occasional challenge of translating synopsis for upcoming dramas. So I will continue maintaining Casual TVB for now and hope that TVB can reinvigorate my passion as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. Thank you to all the readers that have been with me in this five year journey.

They are represented by the ordinary Hong Kong-style milk tea. By chance, the two families undergo a commercial merger. Their traits, preferences, education and quality are completely uncoordinated and do not fit together. One side speaks Oxford English, while the other side speaks colloquialism. One side must descend from the upper class to the lower class. The other side uses money to build an air of nobility and learns to be part of the upper class.

In the end, the "grounded" family falls apart internally, with the head of the family toppled, siblings becoming rivals, and uncle and nephew in confrontation. It sets off another big storm. But there is still love in the world. After the storm, repentance is accepted and the conclusion of everything is motto of this series: "Using family as the basis, using love to surround the family."
