Bowie used to be a star of Cantonese cinema; he and Helena were an onscreen couple back then, and ended up getting married. Bowie, who became rich from filming movies, purchased the entire Sheung Wan street, but he later gambled everything away. In the end, he was only left with this house, and the two continued to lived there until death. Later, this house is purchased by Lau Kong at a low price during SARS so that his family of five is able to live together.

Even if she meets a rich second generation, Cheung Wing Hong does not like it, so he does things to make him leave. Afterward, she marries the honest Tsui Wing, but actually feels aggrieved. She regards Cheung Wing Hong as a son, so she has a lot of friction with her sister-in-law (played by Koni Lui), but the family has no overnight hate; in addition, the ghosts help out.
