The Stew of Life [有营煮妇 yau ying zyu fu]; Series title repetitions

7th September - 16th October
Mon-Fri, 8.30pm

Upon returning from a trip with her husband NG MAN TAK (Chung King Fai), cookery teacher LO SIU LAI (Louise Lee) is shocked to find that her little daughter NG CHOI NI (Fala Chen) has started cohabiting with a homosexually inclined colleague LAU TAT YAN (Timmy Hung) while her divorced sister LO SIU MEI (Christine Ng) is seemingly caught up in a love triangle between tenant YAU KAI (Evergreen Mak) and her ex-husband. By and by TAK is forced to retire early and stays at home all day with nothing to do. LAI, on the other hand, is lucky enough to have the opportunity to host a culinary show on TV. Everything seems to have happened too fast but this does not leave LAI frustrated and accursed. Instead she tries to get round every problem with even more patience and dedication, which however is not appreciated by TAK. The bickering continues until LAI eventually thinks of a good way to tackle TAK.

Delivering a real taste of home, "The Stew of Life" gives you an insight into how women think and feel about relationship and family issues as a daughter, wife and mother.

Fala!! Aww although there's Fala inside, I'm not too interested with the series. Sounds like another Le Femme Desperado and The Family Link to me.


My goodness, TVB should stop with all these '.....Of Life' titles. The Drive of Life, The Gem of Life and now it's the Stew of Life?

Not to mention, ....風雲 (fung wan) too. 酒店風雲 (zau tim fung wan) Revolving Doors of Vengeance, 賭場風雲 (dou cheung fung wan) Dicey Business, 歲月風雲 (sui yuet fung wan) The Drive of Life etc...
