  Frankie is brought up in a strict middle class family, but like any other adolescence, he is curious about sex during puberty, so he turns to his “sex mentor” – porn magazines and his mate Jing. With the help of Jing, Frankie has the opportunity of camping with his crush Zoey, and spending time alone with her, during which he loses his virginity to her...not quite! He turns out to be doing the well-known ugly she-boy from school!

  The episode devastates Frankie, and he decides to leave Hong Kong for the U.K. to continue his study, where he acquaints with lecherous senior James. Frankie is in a rapport and stable relationship with Zeta after graduating. Their only problem is their sex life: Zeta is sexually anxious and sets certain restrictions, not only does it forbid Frankie from being sexually satisfied, it also indirectly leads to their breakup.

  Frankie then begins his journey to the Mainland with Jing to pick up chicks in clubs, and eventually using prostitution, where he meets Celia who gives him pleasures he never experiences before.

  Frankie knows his passion for Celia is based on physical attraction, whereas for Zeta it is spiritual, he cannot help but struggles between love and lust. What will be Frankie’s final decision?

  Spring and her daughter, Autumn, work respectively as a designer and steward manager in a multinational enterprise of men's underwear founded by their brother and uncle Hugo. To win back his ex-girlfriend, Miao, who is now a world class fashion designer, Hugo pretends his business to be at a brink of bankruptcy and hoping to recruit her for help. Miao seizes the opportunity to take revenge on Hugo and she demands him to establish a new fashion line name to achieve positive results before she will accept the offer. Hugo employs top model Jojo for a healthy competition against Spring to see who will take charge of the new fashion line. Autumn runs into stand-in actor, Fei, who offers his job experience as an inspiration to Spring. Fei brings his dear friend, Owen, who happens to be an ex-top model and Jojo's ex. This journey of multiple rivalries will surely take a hilarious route towards a meaningful outcome.

  The fat and ugly Ririko originally works in a night spot for those with a "fat girl fetish"; one day, she accepts an extremely high risk full body plastic surgery and her life has renewed! Ririko after her transformation with her "man made" angelic face and devilish figure rapidly becomes top fashion magazines and international labels' official model, fulfilling her dream. As Ririko enjoys her brilliant moment, due to excessive plastic surgery Ririko's body begins to show severe side effects; with a variety of competition from junior and new comers, the supermodel diva legend gradually vanishes in front of people's eyes!
