These 2 episodes are basically about eat, eat and eat somemore, LOL. Shan Shan still feels insecured with the relationship but they are eating their way to strengthen it. Firstly, Feng Teng openly declares their dating relationship. Then, he finds her an apartment to stay and brings her around to introduce her as his girlfriends. Still plenty of sweet and cute scenes, so don’t skip these 2 episodes. Oh, 3 more nights left only and we’ve to say goodbye to the drama:(
It is quite innovative how Zheng Qi uses clue cards to apologize to Li Shu but why does he need to apologize? Shan Shan and Feng Teng are discussing about Zheng Qi and Li Shu. She misunderstood and thinks Zheng Qi has another girl so he is apologizing. Hence, she says the following to Feng Teng.
Shan Shan: Feng Teng, if you’ve better choice in the future, you don’t need to apologize. You just need to tell me and I’ll leave you.
Feng Teng: Silly girl. (Hey, stop pinching Shan Shan’s cheek. This is the 3rd time already and I am counting:P) Are you threatening me?
Shan Shan: I dare not threaten you. I only want to have some pride left when I get dumped, no need to be so pitiful.
Feng Teng: I’ll not be able to let you go.
Did you notice their interaction is so so so cute, especially their expressions? Shan Shan tries to help Zheng Qi by explaining to Li Shu and Feng Teng puts a slice of kiwi into her mouth, probably to shut her up, LOL.
Feng Teng sends Shan Shan to work and stops right in front of the main entrance to officiate their dating relationship. Shan Shan feels shy and tries to hide her head under the car so Feng Teng has to drag her out, LOL.
Feng Teng: Xue Shan Shan, what are you doing?
Shan Shan: I am tying my shoe lace.
Feng Teng: There is no shoe lace, so why are you pretending to tie it? Come down!
Shan Shan: …….
Feng Teng: I am telling you, inside the building, we’ve a boss and staff relationship. But outside the building, you are my girlfriend. Can’t a boyfriend send his girlfriend to work? Why do I’ve to conceal my relationship?
Shan Shan: Arrrgh……
Feng Teng: No matter how big is the pressure, you also must take it. You are the best. Follow this direction. Go!
Shan Shan thinks: Love is great but Big Boss’s love is the greatest!
Just like in the novel, because of Shan Shan’s relationship with Feng Teng, the manager asks Yan Qing how much pay increase to give her. Shan Shan is worried if she gets good increment, others will think is is because of her relationship with Boss. On the other hand, to avoid such gossip, Boss may give her a smaller increment which will be unfair to her. She laments: “Dating the Boss is such a big financial loss to me. Feng Teng, can’t you endure for a little longer until after my wage adjustment then only declare our relationship.” She asks Feng Teng, how much increment she’ll be getting since she has been working hard. Feng Teng replies, the company will follow normal office procedures which makes Shan Shan unhappy. Then she tells herself to be happy since she will definitely get an increment.
During dinner, Shan Shan asks Feng Teng whether he can drop her off at the same old place tomorrow morning. Feng Teng asks, “Are you embarrassed to be seen with me?” Shan Shan replies, “Of course not, I feel that I am too fat so I want to do some exercise.” Feng Teng says, “But I like your chubbiness. Xue Shan Shan, you must get used to it.” Lidge will be happy to hear this, heehee…..
After knowing her relationship with Feng Teng, everyone in the office starts to gossip about her and also sucks up to her. Shan Shan is unhappy about it and discusses it with Li Shu and Feng Yue. Feng Yue is encouraging and tells her that Yan Qing and her faced similar gossips before. But Li Shu points out that Shan Shan is just a small staff who can’t compare to Yan Qing who used to work in Wall Street. If she can’t take the pressure then resign but Shan Shan doesn’t want to quit her job for love. Even Feng Yue feels Shan Shan’s current status in the company is incompatible with Feng Teng. These busybody women are instilling inferior feelings in Shan Shan. In the end, she gets an average salary increment yet still get gossiped on but she is happy with the increase.
Below is also one of my favorite scenes from the novel. Yes, I’ve a lot of favorites, LOL. It show Feng Teng’s possessiveness and domineering nature, so different from the docile Shan Shan. As the saying goes, opposite attracts.
Feng Teng: Why are you so happy?
Shan Shan: Being assured of my performance by my supervisor so naturally I am happy. I need to find a rental property as I can’t stay with Liu Liu for long.
Feng Teng: Are you unhappy staying at your cousin’s place?
Shan Shan: No, but she stays with her boyfriend.
Feng Teng: Are you saying your cousin lives with her boyfriend?
Shan Shan: Yes, but it is not what you think. Her boyfriend has gone to Beijing on a business trip so I only stay with her.
Feng Teng: Why didn’t you tell me this before?
Shan Shan: This is not particularly important enough to tell you.
Feng Teng: Xue Shan Shan, fine. But,I have a question. Do you think I’ll let you sleep on the bed another man had slept on?
Shan Shan thinks: Big Boss, you think too much.
Shan Shan: It is very normal for cousins to live together.
Feng Teng: You move to my place tomorrow.
Shan Shan: No way, how can I live at your place. How about, I use my own bed sheet and blanket? .…… Then I sleep on the sofa in the living room?…….Sleep on the hard floor?
Feng Teng: Your cousin and her boyfriend are already married?
Shan Shan thinks: Argh, can’t Big Boss not give me a hard time for once?
Shan Shan: I am in the wrong. I guarantee I will find a rental property within three days and move out.
Feng Teng: One day. If you cannot find one tomorrow, you move into my place.
Shan Shan: Then, it is tomorrow. Tomorrow
Shan Shan thinks: Tomorrow after tomorrow. Too many tomorrows. Firstly gets over today, then only think later.
Feng Teng: Eat first.
Shan Shan: I am going.
Feng Teng: Shan Shan.
Shan Shan: I know. Good night. Bye Bye.
The next day, she takes a day off to go to the real estate agent to find a rental property. When she is coming out of the shop she receives a call, asking her to inspect a rental property. What happened in the drama is fairly the same as the novel so you can read all about it yourself. After signing the contract, she dares to ask Feng Teng to go over to help her move and Feng Teng gladly does that for her.
Shan Shan happily tells Feng Teng, it is like winning the lottery and she wants to invite Liu Liu and Shuang Yi to the apartment for a visit. Feng Teng says to make it more formal by inviting their boyfriends along as well. You can read their cute conversation from the novel. Feng Teng agrees to treat her dinner and asks her what she wants to eat. The next day, when she comes out of her new apartment, she stumbles upon a colleague who lives nearby. Then, rumor starts to circulate in the office that Big Boss gives an apartment to Shan Shan , which upsets her.
Feng Teng: What did you eat for lunch?
Shan Shan: I ate food in the staff canteen.
Feng Teng: The fish tastes especially good so eat more.
Shan Shan thinks: Our love is really the accumulation of each and every meals. It is not easy ah. After leaving the noisy and gossipy office and returning to Feng Teng’s quiet apartment, we spend our time together just like any other couples. I like it this way. Although, there is not many surprises, even a bit too quiet, it is very comfortable. I like Feng Teng this way. But i don’t know what kind of girlfriend I am in his eyes.
Shan Shan: Feng Teng, I’ll cook for you in the future. Then, you don’t need to hire a cook.
Feng Teng: You don’t like the food prepared by this cook?
Shan Shan: No, I just want to personally cook for you.
Feng Teng: You know how to cook?
Shan Shan: According to your standard, I am considered not knowing how to cook.
Feng Teng: Then, you just obediently stay by my side and accompany me to eat is enough. Understand?
Shan Shan thinks: Feng Teng is just too perfect. Beside keeping him company, what else can I do? I am more like an eating buddy than a girlfriend. Eating buddy? Oh, why does that sound so awful?
Another adorable scene with the two of them wearing spectacles. Shan Shan is just so sweet and in love with Feng Teng so she tries to find out what he likes to do from Feng Yue. She tells her, Feng Teng likes to play prank on people, shocking Shan Shan, LOL. Since she is Feng Teng’s girlfriend now, the 2 women advise her to dress up and look pretty.
Hence, the 3 women go shopping. When Shan Shan sees the price tags, she is shocked. She wants to improve herself through reading and visiting art gallery to match Boss better.
Lidge, what do you think of Feng Teng’s spoken English:P? Poor Shan Shan, still have to pick vege but she is enjoying it this time round. According to Shan Shan, she is still the best in eating and picking vege, haha…..Feng Teng, when you are in love, everything you eat is also tasty:P
Feng Teng gives a supplementary credit card to Shan Shan to go shopping with Feng Yue and Li Shu. Initially she refuses it until Feng Teng says it is for her to treat Feng Yue and Li Shu’s coffee. She is not really happy about it and thinks of the reasons why he gave her a card. Feng Yue complains that Shan Shan didn’t buy anything and encourages her to use the card. Li Shu seems jealous when she heard Feng Teng gave her a card. She sends Shan Shan home and realises she is staying at an apartment owned by Feng Teng. Shan Shan chats with her buddies about it and they advise her to be independent and not use the card. Then, she invites them and their boyfriends for dinner as suggested by Feng Teng. Shuang Yi jokingly says she wants to eat abalone, shark fin, expensive fishes etc. Similar to the novel, Shan Shan actually writes them down, haha….
Shan Shan: Hey, Feng Teng. What will the annual party be like?
Feng Teng: You actually want to ask what are there to eat.
Shan Shan: No such thing. I want to say what if during the shareholders’ meeting, they ask about matters pertaining to the Finance Dept, so how am I going to reply them? You’ve to tell me beforehand so I can be prepared.
Feng Teng: They will not ask you anything pertaining to the Finance Dept but they’ll definitely be curious about the Big Boss’s girlfriend. You’ve to conduct yourself well. (Pinch cheek again)
Shan Shan thinks: Yes ah, why I didn’t think of that?
Another cute interaction between the cute couple. For you information, Zhao Li Ying put on 8 pounds for the drama so that her cheek is meaty enough for Feng Teng to pinch often, LOL. Shan Shan is complaining about her high expenses even though she eats breakfast and dinner with Feng Teng. Thus, how do others survive? Shan Shan is unhappy that the colleagues know that Feng Teng gave her a card. She complains to her buddies again. They advise her to quit her job. However, Li Shu tells her not to resign and tries to brainwash her into having doubts and fear in her relationship with Feng Teng.
Hence, Shan Shan tries to put on make-up and new clothes in the hope of impressing Feng Teng and the directors at the annual shareholders meeting.
However, the end result is far from it. It is shocking that she is silly enough to wear a party dress in the office which even Feng Teng has no eye to see:P This part is actually rather hilarious and I was roaring with laughter but at Shan Shan’s expense:( Xiao Wei scolds her and asks her to go home to change into something simple.
Then, Shan Shan turns up at the party with a casual dress embarrassing herself and gets reprimanded by Li Shu. She feels depressed and drowns her sorrows with food and wine after hearing some colleagues saying Feng Teng is only playing with her, she is an embarrassment to him and Li Shu looks more compatible with Feng Teng. Li Shu pretends to console her. Feng Teng wants to introduce some directors to her. When a director asks who is Feng Teng’s girlfriend, surprisingly Li Shu answers, Shan Shan is Feng Teng’s girlfriend and she is Zheng Qi’s girlfriend. She did that to test if Feng Teng will get jealous.
Shan Shan got drunk and wakes up in Feng Teng’s bed. He tells her in future, if she doesn’t know what to wear, just ask him. Also, if someone asks her if she is Feng Teng’s girlfriend, she has to say yes loudly.
