More clashes in the works as Xue Ling and Wafiq, acting as CEO on Kwong San's absence, are at loggerheads over her proposed plans to rebrand KS Foods. And to ease the financial burden of the family, Salmah decides to looks for a job after much consideration, and applies for a Clinic Assistant job at Dr Bhaskar's clinic.
Meera organizes a small dinner gathering with Arjun's boss Dr Krishna and family with a couple of agendas in mind – to get Arjun into Dr Krishna's good books and match-make him with Dr Krishna's daughter Anandhi (Ann). But Meera got more than what she bargained for when Bhaskar meets his old flame Li Yan, who is catering for the dinner party, after 30 years. Meantime, Shruti's quest to get close to Pam backfires (sort of) when she outshines (unintentionally) Pam in a shoot for the Tanglin JC Recruitment video. And the duo of Michael and Eddie are on a secret mission – to sell beers at the chalet outing. But first, they must find a place to stash the contraband without alerting any of the adults.

Bhaskar, still reeling from his encounter with Li Yan, discovers that Li Yan was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and has been in remission for a year already.
Meera pressures Arjun to go on a date with Anandhi but Anandhi mistakes Diana to be Arjun's girlfriend after witnessing Diana and Arjun having a tiff at the hospital.

And more feel-good moments for Xue Ling as Adam and her kiss and make up for the big fight the previous day.
Arjun sets conditions for Diana with regards to the ‘date' meeting with Meera and Bhaskar; what to wear, what to do etc, resulting in Jay thinking that this deal between them in more than just an innocent ‘girlfriend-for-hire' service. But the meeting proved to be a disaster as Meera finds out that Diana is a bogus girlfriend and Arjun tells Meera off for meddling in his life. Salmah, who thinks that she is qualified enough for the Clinic Assistant job, gets angry when she finds out that Dr Bhaskar did not call her for an interview.

More issues for the Rahmans as the wedding plans for Norleena takes a turn for the worst when Sulaiman calls of the wedding after an explosive exchange between Norleena and him over the dulang hantaram, the traditional gift exchange between husband and wife.

Back home, Norleena and Sulaiman receive counsel from Sulaiman's foster parents. Angered by Jay's assumption of her being an escort, Diana plays along in order to teach him a lesson.
Upon retracing her steps, Salmah discovers her mistake and confesses to Bhaskar. In a fit of rage, Bhaskar fires her when she lets slip that she had lied in her CV, but later retracts her termination after Li Yan mitigates on her behalf.

Meanwhile, Adam is offered a job to be a martial arts instructor at a gym. However he questions if it's the right job for him.
Bee Li finds the job application forms that Adam disposed and questions him about it. When she gets no satisfying response, she rallies in Xue Ling's help to coax Adam into taking up the offer. Will the women succeed or will they push Adam off the edge with their meddling? On the other hand, the indecisive Suzanne, unable to find a job she likes, tries out working in TCH but her carefree and sloppy attitude gets a rude awakening from Zul.

In an effort to mend the rocky relationship between Wafiq and him, Adam offers to look after Kalila but things don't go as planned when Kalila gorges on sweet kueh and has a sugar high. Meanwhile, Shruti feels embarrassed after being tricked by Eddie but she has bigger fish to fry when she sees Suzanne being close with Ben and decides to teach her a lesson. Another comment from Salmah about marriage sends Nadiah over the edge, leading into a heated fight between the sisters where things quickly become ugly. Ben is thrown into a predicament when he finally learns about Shruti's feelings for him and struggles to find a way to let her down gently. Will Shruti be able to accept the rejection?

Shruti is humiliated in front of Pam and the gang. Meanwhile, Salmah reminds Norleena that she has yet to buy a langkah bendul gift for Nadiah, as a goodwill gesture out of respect for the elder. As Nadiah dismisses this tradition, Norleena misunderstands and the sisters get into a fight again. Bhasker is unusually attentive to Meera, which makes her suspicious, and leads to her feeling insecure about her looks and worries that her family doesn't need her anymore.
Diana runs into Arjun. Somehow, the awkward conversation leads to a date at Arjun's medical ball. Just as they are about to leave for the ball, Arjun is paged by the hospital. He needs to check in on a patient first. Unfortunately, the patient dies. Diana sees Arjun's vulnerable side and encourages him to talk, and they go on an official date. Meanwhile Norleena tries to mend ties and asks Nadiah to join her henna party. Nadiah agrees but returns only after the party has ended, resulting in Norleena lashing out at Nadiah. Shruti's humiliation worsens as Pam and her gang taunts her because of what happened with Ben yesterday.
It's Norleena's and Sulaiman's wedding day but Nadiah is left frustrated by Salmah's constant attempt to match-make her with the single male guests. Meanwhile, Wafiq launches his own investigation into the signing of the new office lease as Xue Ling takes Bee Li on a tour of the new office and tries to convince her that a new premise for KS Foods will do the company good.
Bhaskar and Meera, shocked by the online insults being directed at Shruti, come up with an idea to soften the blow. Salmah, anxious that nothing happened on Norleena's and Sulaiman's first night, gets on their case about ‘doing it ASAP'. And as part of her plans to rebrand, Xue Ling arranged for an interview with John Scott, a leading columnist from the prestigious business trade magazine.
Salmah continues to dispense advice to Sulaiman to take the lead on the consummation of the marriage, much to Sulaiman's annoyance and embarrassment. Over at the Bhaskars, Arjun is stunned when he thinks that Diana is treating him just like a friend, and nothing more, just as Meera and Bhaskar are equally shocked to learn that Diana is Li Yan's daughter. Still on her quest to rebrand KS Foods, Xue Ling organizes a focus group meeting but the result is not quite she expected. And while she is halfway through her interview with John Scott, an unexpected visitor turns up.
Kwong San cuts his overseas trip short and makes an unexpected return to take up issues with Xue Ling over the new office, and rubs her face in further by getting a potential investor into KS Foods and telling her that she should be spending her time getting revenues in rather than focusing her energy on the new office. Adam's request for funding for his MMA School is rejected due to his lack of experience and collaterals. A concerned Li Yan gives Arjun a ‘warning' about spending too much time with Diana. Meantime, Shruti's popularity increases when she rescues Lauren from Pam's sabotage.
Despite his resistance, Diana accompanies Arjun to his dinner gathering with his high-class friends, and to her horror ends up paying equal share, even though she consciously orders the cheapest item on the menu. Li Yan is still very much against their relationship, somehow agreeing with Meera and citing the difference in their family background as the main divisive factor. Jay commiserates with Li Yan and they grow closer. Meanwhile, in the coffee house, a mysterious female voyeur emerges. Over at KS foods, Xue Ling and Wafiq are tasked by Kwong San to woo this potential investor, Peter Tay, whose arrogant and demanding style sends them into a tailspin. In the meantime, Sulaiman and Norleena's supposed sex problem becomes the gossip of the day at the coffee house, putting Salmah in the middle of the couple crossfire.
Ben is once again drawn into the love-hate affair with his unstable ex-girlfriend Vanessa whom he left 8 years ago, much to the chagrin of his family, especially a very concerned and worried Li Yan.

Meanwhile, Meera, who is so set on tearing Arjun away from Diana, employs the latter to clean her house, much to Arjun's disapproval and Bhaskar's annoyance – what is she up too now? Adam's Mixed Martial Arts school takes off, with much help from Michael, Melissa and even Shruti, as they devise innovative ways to promote using social media.
Ben discovers more about Vanessa's harrowing past, but his savior complex compels him to help her straighten up, and she draws him in further into her lair. With continuous help from the youngsters, Adam's MMA School is looking robust, with Xue Ling giving him moral support from the side; and even Li Yan, usually apathetic towards Adam, throws in her blessing. Xue Ling's defiant handling of the arrogant potential investor Peter Tay invites harsh criticisms from the profit-minded Kwong San. Li Yan and Bhaskar share their disapproval about their children dating, although their objection stems from not wanting history to repeat itself, a great departure from Meera's excuse. Meera is beginning to wrongly suspect that Bhaskar is having an affair. On the matter of Diana seeing Arjun, Jay seems to understand and commiserate well with Li Yan, and they bond further. Jay has his own hairy moment when Kwong San and Xue Ling bring Peter Tay to tour the coffee house.
After all the wooing from Kwong San Food, Peter Tay drops the bomb that he is not investing. At the conference he puts the blame on Xue Ling, but later tells her personally that the real reason is he sees KS Food as a lost cause.

And more suspected infidelity on the cards when Suzanne stumbles upon a Chloe on Christopher's Whatsapps chat. With the help of Diana, Suzanne gets in contact with her to sort things out.
The Tongs organize a farewell dinner for Christopher before he goes back to Perth, but he drops the big lie that he has graduated and is not going back Down Under as he is not keen to pursue an honours degree.

Meanwhile the rivalry between Chris and Aaron comes to a head when Chris hatches a devious plan to get Aaron fired from KS Foods.
It's time for KS Foods to choose between Chris and Aaron for the permanent position and Aaron is clearly the favourite.

Not so much bonding at the Rahman's however, as Sulaiman, engrossed with his ever increasing Facebook following, finds himself in trouble for ignoring Norleena. A rather dramatic ending to Arjun's otherwise slow and boring day off when a heart to heart talk with his father coupled with a few extra drinks, spurs him to pour his heart out to Diana and give her an ultimatum.

Kalila moves in with Wafiq and things get off the wrong foot when the colours and decoration of her bedroom is not to her liking.

Meanwhile Michael reveals to Melissa that he harbours the ambition of being a pilot, but is dismayed that his life is all mapped out without consulting him. Over at the Bhaskars, Deepavali ends on a sour note for Meera when her sari was damaged by a fire from an oil lamp and regards it as a bad omen.
Michael rebels against his family and Kwong San's wishes by refusing to study business, nor join KS Foods. He gains an unexpected ally in Bee Li, who is affected by Jun Kai's return. Xue Ling has some bonding time with Jun Kai, and gets suspicious about the lies Kwong San and Bee Li had weaved to hide Kwong San's poor health conditions. In the meantime, Shruti is on the hunt for something that will lift Meera's bad mood.
As Michael continues the struggle of coping for his exams, he finds an unlikely source of comfort and joy in Pam. While at home, Bee Li continues covering up for Kwong San's illness in front of Xue Ling. Shruti gives Meera a pleasant surprise and eases her mood swings.

However, Nadiah reassures him that Kalila is sensible enough not to fall into eating disorder. Over at the Tanglin Coffee House, a hypersensitive Meera gets upset when she thinks that Li Yan is gossiping about her with Chris and Suzanne. Li Yan, on the other hand, has problems on her own when she gets a notice from her landlord KS Foods about a huge rent increase.
Xue Ling gets upset with Wafiq when Melissa contracted the Hand Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) from Kalila. She feels that if Wafiq had taken pre-emptive measures, this would not have happened. Xue Ling then gets even more worried when she learns that it is a lot more dangerous for someone with Melissa's medical condition to get HFMD. Meantime, Li Yan negotiates with Bee Li over the Tanglin Coffee House rent increase, and Bee Li gets evasive when Li Yan links the reason behind the rent increase to Jay. And when Bhaskar offers Norleena an opportunity to upgrade herself, Norleena is thrilled and wants to share the news with Sulaiman. However she is shocked to learn that Sulaiman has intentions for her to quit her job.
Norleena is upset that besides Sulaiman, Salmah too, wants her to quit the clinic job and concentrate on having the baby. She feels betrayed by them. It's Father-Daughter bonding time as Wafiq goes to the mall with Kalila to get some medical supplies. But the shopping trip turns sour when Kalila overhears a phone conversation between Wafiq and a client that makes her think Wafiq is more interested in his work then spending time with her. Meanwhile, Eddie gets suspicious when Pam starts hanging around Michael. He thinks that Pam is trying to make use of Michael. However, Michael defends Pam, which riles Eddie.
In yet another desperate attempt to fatten Melissa up, Xue Ling devises a plan to swop the low-fat frozen yogurt that Melissa usually eats, with the rich, high-fat ones. And to Xue Ling's relief, Melissa couldn't taste the difference. Nadiah is surprised to learn that Wafiq had got a neighbor to look after Kalila at home. When Kalila tells Nadiah she is not comfortable with this arrangement, Nadiah gets Salmah to help out. Further conversations with Wafiq lead to the revelation of Wafiq's feeling that he is not cut out to be the perfect father and husband. Over at the Rahmans, Norleena and Sulaiman clear up their misunderstanding when they finally understand where each other is coming from in terms of their jobs and future plans.
Having to cover for Wafiq while he's at home settling the new maid, Nadiah finds it difficult to deal with Kwong San's demands, reinforcing her already negative impression of him. Kwong San, meanwhile, continues to cover up his medical condition with the help of Bee Li. Feeling guilty for causing the rental hike, Jay secretly helps Li Yan and the Tongs in their coffee house business, and steps in to convince Xue Ling and Adam to lift the ban on Michael and Eddie hanging out together.
Abdul's death anniversary casts a sombre mood over the Rahmans' with Nadiah feeling especially emotional and conflicted after Kwong San shows concern over her well-being. In the meantime, Kwong San and Wafiq share a moment that hints of a dark past. Comic relief as Jay and Zul compete for Chris and Diana's approval of their cooking skill, resulting in Jay being hurt when Diana says she prefers Zul's dish. And the fellowship of the trio of Michael, Eddie and Shruti is being undermined with the intrusion of Pam. To make things worse, Pam makes Michael as her prom date.
Diana discovers Jay's plan in helping Tanglin Coffee House secretly and confronts him. Grateful for his concern over Li Yan, Diana softens her attitude towards Jay which only makes him more uncomfortable. Despite his denials, Jay realises his feelings for Diana goes much deeper. With the prom date drawing closer, Eddie and Shruti pressure Michael to dump Pam. But Michael changes his mind after witnessing Pam's kindness towards Melissa.

But Kwong San assures Wafiq of his discretion.
With no prom date in sight, Shruti offers to go with Eddie as his date, much to everyone's surprise, especially Eddie himself. And with a heightened awareness of his mortality, Kwong San admits his fears to Bhaskar who encourages him to take a proactive approach in managing his health. After witnessing Jay's edginess when Arjun chats Diana up, Zul pushes the issue with Jay, encouraging him to go after Diana. But Jay is defensive and tells Zul off. Afraid of losing his friendship with Diana and the Tongs, Jay chooses to bury his feelings.
At the Tanglin JC prom night, a rivalry between Mark and Michael is kindled, while Pam and Shruti unite with a common dislike of Lauren. Over at Tanglin Coffee House, Li Yan and the Tongs encourage Diana to realise her travel dreams. But Jay is caught between his desire for her to leave, as well as for her to stay. Salmah takes the initiative to introduce a dating app to Zul and Ben, much to their apprehension and annoyance.
Salmah takes one step further with the dating app by setting up Zul's and Ben's online profiles without their knowledge. Chris, frustrated that his stint at KS Foods is going nowhere, rats on Suzanne in a bid to make himself look good. But the plan backfires when Xue Ling sees through it.

Kwong San decides it's time to draft a will and Bee Li is not very happy about it on superstitious grounds. She gets even more upset when she learns of what Kwong San plans for the will.

Meanwhile, Salmah runs into a potential child abuse case in the neighbourhood.

It's the day of KS Foods' walkathon and Jay has a close shave running into Kwong San at the Tanglin Coffee House. Suzanne shines as she chaperones the walkathon Celebrity Guest but then she mysteriously falls ill. Chris takes advantage of her misfortune to grab the limelight while Felicia tries to get close to him. Salmah's concern over an abused patient grows deeper in spite of warnings from Sulaiman to stay out of a potential domestic dispute.
Suzanne gets an asthma attack and Chris, feeling guilty for taking advantage of her illness in the previous episode, overcompensates and believes that KS Foods should take responsibility for her illness. Salmah goes against everyone's advice and makes a police report about Madam Mary Tan abusing her daughter Dawn. While Jay has to live with an embarrassing revelation that's been broadcast to everyone by Diana.
Sulaiman is upset when he got dragged into the Salmah-Mary Tan saga. But there's more that meets the eye with regards to Sulaiman's reaction to the alleged Dawn's abuse case, and that poses some questions for Norleena. Li Yan kick starts the preparation for the TCH Singles Lunch event as the bickering pair of Diana and Jay contributes their own ideas. Meantime, Ah Biao's previously injured knee gives way again when he chases after a couple of taxi fare evaders. Will this signal the beginning of his impending retirement?
Norleena is determined to find out what's going on with Sulaiman and the cause of his mood swings after he got sucked into Dawn's alleged abused case. And more headaches for Zul as he feels he's falling behind Ben in the race for a date online. He is delighted when a Rahimah gets in touch with him but he gets frustrated again when she starts giving him mixed signals. While Nadiah runs into an ex-JC classmate Ashraff at Hong Kong Disneyland and he reveals that he has something ‘important' to tell her after all these years.
Ben goes for a highly anticipated date with someone he met on the online dating app, while Zul comes face-to-face with Rahimah. But both meetings end up with disastrous results. The saga between Mary Tan and Salmah takes a wicked twist when the whole neighbourhood turns against Salmah, making her the public enemy number 1. Meanwhile, the encounter with Ashraff has Nadiah opening up her eyes and mind to love and romance.
As Norleena continues probing about that mystery letter, Sulaiman decides to deal with the issue that has been bugging him and move on with his life. While over at the Tanglin Coffee House, the very first singles lunch ‘Meet and Eat' didn't start and end as well as Li Yan hoped for. And seeing a dejected Li Yan, Diana comes up with a plan to make the next ‘Meet and Eat' event even better, but that plan got Jay worried.
Jay is not comfortable with Diana going undercover at the other café's singles lunch event, so he cooks up an excuse to tag along. And amidst the colorful and weird characters they meet in the event, both Diana and Jay begin to share things about themselves and surprisingly bond quite well. More dating drama as Zul gets another date request through the dating app. Although he expresses nonchalance about it, he can't help but be curious about the other party and decides to check on her.
Ben manages to convince Sulaiman to meet up with his estranged father Hassan. However, the meeting is swift and cold as Sulaiman does not intend to bond with Hassan but rather to get a few things off his chest. And Sulaiman also discovers a shocking truth behind the meeting. Li Yan comes to Meera's aid when she experiences a hot flash whilst at TCH. As the ladies bond, Meera shares some marketing and promotion concepts for the Singles Lunch. Li Yan thinks they are great ideas but Diana is far from impressed.
Sulaiman is on an emotional roller coaster after finding out about Hassan's new family and his half-siblings. Norleena begins to feel the effect of his mood swings and worse, she comes face-to-face with Hassan when he decides to pay Sulaiman's family a visit. Meantime, Eddie and Shruti are concerned over Michael's soft spot for Pam and spending time with her. Over at TCH, Arjun and Diana get into a minor tiff when Arjun thinks that Diana is making fun of Meera, while Salmah and Li Yan raise their concern with Zul over hooking up with the young online date Juliana. They think Juliana is out to cheat Zul of his money.
Diana feels bad about making jokes about Meera. She wants to apologise to Arjun but Jay tries to dissuade her as he is afraid that she may reconcile with Arjun. Over at the Rahmans, Norleena and Salmah demand to know why Sulaiman told them his father is dead when he's not. But Sulaiman tries to evade the issue. And when Arjun tells Diana that Jay might have feelings for her, she scoffs at his wild speculation. But on the other hand, Diana is concerned that Arjun may be right. Michael is secretive about his part-time job, and this only makes Eddie determined to find out what it is. So with the help of Shruti and Pam, they embark on the mission to uncover the truth, leading to an unexpected and hilarious outcome.
Kwong San notices Wafiq's coolness towards Nadiah and thinks that it's because of what happened to her late brother Nasir. And as their friendship blossoms, Meera helps Li Yan with some decorations for the TCH Singles Event night, much to Arjun's surprise and concern. While Eddie, who is just fired from his part-time job, learns about a volunteer programme in Thailand, and Li Yan encourages him to go. Jay is mistaken as a participant at the Singles Night Event. As he escorts an attractive girl to a table, Diana watches with an uncomfortable feeling.
The Lims are wary about Peter Tay's return to KS Foods and while Bee Li reminds Kwong San not to let Peter Tay push him around, Peter Tay has already helped himself to Kwong San's office by setting up his own work station there. Meanwhile, Eddie happily prepares for his trip to Thailand while Michael's part-time job gets found out by his parents. Knowing that her parents won't approve the guy she is dating, Ann gets Arjun to play along as a ‘pretend date'. But Arjun is not keen to get involved with this – he could get into hot soup with Ann's father Dr Krishna, who also happens to be his boss. But then again, Arjun thinks he could also benefit at work with this arrangement.
Acceding to Kwong San's wishes, Michael turns up at KS Foods to do a work attachment while waiting for his NS Call-Up and A-level results. But Xue Ling, under pressure from Peter Tay, sends him to work as a cleaner in the factory, leaving him shocked and Adam furious. Wafiq's and Kalila's lives are turned upside down with the arrival of Wafiq's mother Asmah, who is supposedly here to look after Kalila. While Arjun gets some lessons in career-advancement after a round of golf with the various Department Heads from the hospital.
More corporate woes for Michael as he is forced to attend the KS Foods company dinner while Uncle Chris the intern is forced to sit out of the function, much to his chagrin. And more clashes between Kalila and her grandmother Asmah as they really don't see eye-to-eye on everything from shopping, eating to even the right thing to say to Melissa.
As things are not going well between Kalila and Asmah, Kalila pleads with Nadiah for help. Nadiah has no choice but to bring this matter up to Wafiq before Kalila moves in with Asmah. Will Wafiq take on the responsibility to look after Kalila himself? Adam is angry with Xue Ling for getting Michael involved in digging for more information on Peter Tay through his estranged daughter Lauren. But Xue Ling is adamant she's doing it all for the future of KS Foods. Lauren nearly finds out the truth behind Michael's purpose of getting close to her, but Michael manages to cover his track in time. Meantime, a self-conscious Melissa starts to weigh herself and gets really upset with the result.
It's Christmas Eve but the Lims are in no festive mood when Melissa has a meltdown after she finds out that she has put on weight. And more headache for Kwong San as Peter Tay presents a list of senior and loyal staff to be made redundant and insists the retrenchment exercise goes ahead. While Kalila and Wafiq enjoy a much needed father-daughter bonding time after the nightmare with Asmah.
Kwong San tries to bring up the topic of his will again but Bee Li gets upset – she doesn't understand why he must talk about this ‘inauspicious stuff' (at least to her) right on Christmas day. Melissa gets discharged from the hospital but things do not get any easier for Xue Ling and Adam as the week's pent-up frustrations result in a big argument between both of them. Meantime, Arjun is stuck in TCH after going along with another of Ann's fake dates. To kill time, he hangs up with Chris and both of them bond over a game of darts.
Unresolved tension between Adam and Xue Ling cast a shadow over Boxing Day. After deducing that Melissa's anorexia could be due to deeper psychological issues, Xue Ling makes a decision to have a therapist work with her. However, this was met with objection from Adam for fearing that Melissa's psychological issue could be traced to his late mother's mental illness. Meanwhile, Salmah is concerned that Nadiah and Wafiq are spending too much time with each other at work. She worries there might be something going on between them as she doesn't really approve of Wafiq's divorcee status.

Over at the Bhaskars, Shruti is perplexed over the drop in the attendance for her birthday party as the days draw closer. Suzanne is still stung over her fallout with Christopher, but a talk with Felicia makes her realize there's more that meets the eye with Chris' unhappiness over her Hong Kong partying photos.
Competition heats up between Shruti and Lauren as they pull out all stops to entice people to come to their parties. Suspecting that she is the cause of the rift between Christopher and her, Felicia comes clean with Suzanne. However, Suzanne brushes it off as a one-sided crush by Felicia. Acting on her suspicion that Christopher is guilty about Felicia, Suzanne rallies Diana to confront him together. But tension between Diana and Jay mounts when Christopher tries to deflect his guilt by outing Jay's secret liking for Diana. Things end badly with Christopher's admission of his one-night stand.
It's New Year's Eve and the Tongs gear up for a party at their shop house. It's also Shruti's eighteenth birthday and she has a tough time telling a stubborn Bhaskar she wants to have a parent-free party. The tension between Jay and Diana continues to simmer and it's only a matter of time before one of them lets their true feelings surface. Michael is obliged to attend Lauren's party but is bailed out when her house suffers a blackout.
It's New Year's Day. Lauren invites herself over to Michael's house when he lets on that Peter Tay is there. Lauren's reunion and relationship with her estranged father piques Kwong San's curiosity. He suspects that Lauren is trying to reunite with Peter Tay because of his wealth. Jay, after being left in limbo by Diana on New Year's Eve, is desperate to get an answer from her but she keeps avoiding him. Norleena invites Leha and Kassim over in the hopes of getting Sulaiman to fill in the blanks on his unhappy past.
Michael makes a mistake at the KS Foods factory and he fears he will incur the wrath of Kwong San. Fortunately, the kind factory supervisor Uncle Vijesh covers for him. Lauren looks for Peter Tay at the office under the guise of wanting to know him better. But there's more that meets the eyes amid the father-daughter bonding. And Chris, alone in the office with Suzanne, seizes the chance to make up with Suzanne but she continues to ignore him.
Michael struggles to put forth his case about KS Foods' succession plan. But after he accidentally plunges the company into a perilous situation, he finds his moral courage and makes a stand. Diana and Jay's relationship finally begins to find its feet, but the path is rocky, and looks increasingly like a dead end. On the other hand, Chris and Suzanne's relationship reaches a new low, as Suzanne struggles with heartbreak from the fallout, and her feelings for Chris.
Ben goes to TCH and discovers that Jay is not there. A search into his room reveals that he has moved out, and this leaves the Tongs stunned and puzzled by his disappearance. Lauren's ruse finally falls through, with Peter Tay deviously manipulating her and her stepfather Colin. And after his mis-step at the KS Foods factory, Michael is transferred to work at the office so that Kwong San and Xue Ling can keep a close watch on him. Meanwhile, Arjun and Ann's fake relationship has crossed new and dangerous boundaries, with Arjun now worried about damaging his mother's hopes when the eventual break-up occurs.
Arjun has to perform an operation on a patient who is friends with Salmah, but he proves to be extremely difficult to handle. Bhaskar helps out, but it backfires badly when Arjun thinks that Bhaskar is undermining him. Michael is stunned to find out that Mark and Randall have pushed Lauren into trying those ADHD pills before, while Li Yan and the other members of the Tanglin Ladies Circle agree to form an exercise group and keep fit. A worried Diana, meanwhile, thinks that Jay left because of her. She tries her best to hide her guilt.
Arjun and Bhaskar reconcile, and he confesses to his father that he doubts his abilities as a doctor. Meanwhile, Michael confronts Randall and Mark about their drug related habits. The Tanglin Ladies' Circle holds their first exercise class, and things break down quickly between Salmah and Bee Li when Salmah accuses Bee Li of hurting Li Yan intentionally.
Eddie returns from his volunteering stint in Thailand, and starts his pranks all over again, only to have a couple of stunts falling flat right in front of him. While in the neighbourhood, Norleena runs into Hassan and the latter manages to coax Norleena into having coffee with him for some catching up sessions. And drugs and alcohol gets the better of Randall when he meets with a mishap at his own pool party.
Michael and Lauren decide to make a police report about Mark being the supplier of the ADHA Pills when Randall's injury is more serious than they thought. Hassan is upset when he finds out that Salmah was rude to his wife Atiqah during the latter's pre-employment medical check-up at the clinic. He seeks Sulaiman out to address the issue, only to get more rebuffs from Sulaiman. Wafiq, meanwhile, reluctantly helps Salmah to look for potential husband for Nadiah after he was coerced by her to do so. And over at TCH, Zul shocks everyone when he hands over a large sum of money to Juliana, the girl he just met online.
Zul gets jittery when he cannot get in touch with Juliana, and Salmah isn't helping when she keeps telling him that Juliana might have absconded with his hard earned money. Wafiq continues to be frustrated by Salmah's requests and questions regarding potential husbands for Nadiah. And Atiqah tells Sulaiman off over his ‘ridiculous' request that Hassan and her stay out of the Tanglin neighbourhood
Zul is morose as he regrets the way things have turned out with Juliana. And a guilt-stricken Salmah decides to help to reconcile the duo. Nadiah has a tough time handling the retrenchment consultation sessions with irate staff who feels that they've been betrayed by the company, and Kwong San and Xue Ling have a crisis on their hands when they learn that some of the retrenched employees have gone to the press, and this might generate negative publicity for the company. However, Peter Tay tells them he has an idea to fend off the bad publicity. Arjun is introduced to an aesthetic doctor and his interest in that business is piqued when the doctor exalts the perks of the aesthetic business.
Peter Tay hopes to put a positive spin on the company's retrenchment exercise in an interview with a journalist, but Lauren unexpectedly shows up at the interview. Arjun gets business advice from Chris and considers the prospect of opening his own aesthetics practice. Michael, meanwhile, is getting weary of the constant tension at home. He confides in Pam. And although Zul and Juliana finally make amends, their personality differences are starting to show. Mrs Pereira is disappointed to learn that Zul and Juliana appear to be pursuing a relationship. Could Zul be missing out on something with more potential?
Kwong San and Xue Ling address the press leak and try to convince the board members that a retrenchment exercise is not necessary. However, Peter Tay has other ideas as he tries to convince the board that a golden handshake is vital to save the company. Arjun is feeling a little down after losing a patient in the operating room. Concerned for his son, Bhaskar, tries to talk things out with him but nothing prepares him for the decision Arjun has made about his career. Xue Ling and Adam have a big argument when Adam feels that those therapist sessions are not helping Melissa. To make things worse, he brings Melissa for Chinese New Year shopping instead of going for a session, hence incurring the wrath of Xue Ling.
A frustrated Xue Ling joins Peter Tay for some wine and Adam is not too pleased to see her home drunk, and the tense atmosphere between them escalate to another full blown argument. Things are still icy between Chris and Suzanne and although Chris tries to make amends, Suzanne is cold and unwilling. When Chris confides in Arjun and Suzanne with Diana over this, both have different takes on the issue; Chris citing Suzanne is being difficult while Suzanne saying Chris hurt her too much to take it lightly. Will they be able to work things out and get back together? Meanwhile, Salmah sets Nadiah on a blind date and Nadiah is not too happy with it. To make things worse, Wafiq, Sulaiman and Norleena are caught in the crossfire.
After spending a night at the Tongs', things are much clearer to Suzanne and she wants to give Chris another chance. However, upon seeing Chris's empty bed, the upset Suzanne starts to question if he might be outside cheating on her again. Meera tries to convince Salmah and Li Yan to go for another of Adam's exercise class but the women are hesitant after that incident where Bee Li caused Li Yan to sprain her ankle. Peter Tay calls up an emergency meeting at KS Foods with the staff as he is leaving for Japan and wants to make sure everything is in place before he leaves. He continues to question Kwong San about Jay's whereabouts and the talk of Jay's return is making Xue Ling uncomfortable. And there is more surprises in store for Kwong San and her.
Jay shows up at the board meeting, throwing Kwong San and Xue Ling off. Knowing that Peter Tay is watching, Kwong San and Xue Ling play it cool. But Peter Tay has a bigger plan in mind to drive the wedge between the Lims. Ben's dating woes worsen when he unknowingly calls up a second date which happens to be Gina's friend. While Chris, being officially dumped by Suzanne, pleads with Li Yan to help him persuade Suzanne not to give up on their relationship. However, Li Yan is reluctant to get involved.
Kwong San is angry with Bee Li and Xue Ling for keeping Jay's return to Singapore and staying with the Tongs a secret. But he is even more furious with the Tongs for hiding Jay from him. Salmah irritates Nadiah with suggestions on how to prepare for her blind date. And Norleena finds herself being tasked to spy on Nadiah during her date by Salmah, who is all too anxious to check out that guy. Li Yan, meanwhile, hatches a plan with Chris for him to reconcile with Suzanne. When the two finally meet, something unexpected happens, leaving Suzanne totally stunned.
After news about Jay is Jun Kai broke out, everyone forms their own opinions about the situation, and all is especially concerned for Diana. At KS Foods, Jay makes his presence felt. He gets all business-like, questioning the accounts and business decisions, causing Xue Ling and Kwong San to wonder at his motives. Meantime, drama unfolds when Eddie and Shruti discover Michael's ran away to Hong Kong. They hatch a plan to get Michael back without letting the adults know.

Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Shruti and Eddie manage to find Michael but Michael doesn't want to go home. And the truth is out after Arjun confesses to Bhaskar that Ann and him are on a fake date just to keep Ann's parents happy and cover up for her real date with Ryan the Surfer. Arjun promised he will find a way to end it but Bhaskar is concerned how that would impact Arjun's career.
Eddie, Shruti and Pam come up with an idea to keep Michael in Hong Kong Disneyland until Adam's arrival. But the plan backfires after Michael spots Adam and runs away again. When father and son finally reunite, things take a turn for the worse when Michael blows his tops at Adam. Hoping to mend things between Jay and Diana, Christopher and Suzanne arrange for them to meet and patch things up. But the meeting falls flat after Jay walks out on them.
Diana gets really angry with Chris and Suzanne for arranging that awkward lunch date with Jay. In Hong Kong, Adam finally reconciles with Michael with help from an unexpected source in Eddie, while Li Yan confronts a long buried secret from her past after a meeting with a long-lost sister. Meanwhile, Pam and Shruti finally bury the hatchet and become friends. Diana, however, has no such luck as she struggles to cope after her ill-fated meeting with Jay.
Adam and Li Yan return to Singapore without Michael, much to Xue Ling's annoyance. When Adam reveals that he allowed Michael to go backpacking in China, Xue Ling hits the roof. More troubles at the Lims when Jay tries to have dinner with Kwong San and both end of having a big argument over Kwong San being controlling of his life. Chris and Suzanne, together with Sulaiman and Norleena try to set Ben up with a date with Gina. And Arjun's relationship with Ann comes to a very abrupt and shocking end when Ann runs away from home, leaving a note saying that she has eloped with someone else.
Suzanne is now not too sure about getting engaged with Chris. The truth is that she still hasn't gotten over Chris's infidelity but Ben reassures her that everything will be fine. Nadiah has another blind date set up by Wafiq that leads to an unexpected consequence. She is beginning to question Wafiq's motive to set her up with those ‘strange' guys. While over at the Bhaskars, Arjun's fake relationship with Ann comes to a head when Dr Krishna shows up at his house unannounced with photos of Ann and Ryan and demands answers. Things get worst for Arjun when Ann admits to the fake dating.
The fallout from Arjun's phoney relationship with Ann continues as Bhaskar suffers the silent treatment from Meera while Krishna finds fault with Arjun at work. Kwong San is on the warpath when he learns that Jay told Wafiq about his heart attack. He worries that he will lose the control and confidence of the directors and staff if news of his illness leaks. And still mulling over what Juliana said about having her own children, Zul and Mrs Pereira start to bond over the parental issue of having children.
Still unhappy with Arjun's decision to open an aesthetics clinic, the cold war between Arjun and Bhaskar escalates. A major showdown looms when Kwong San springs a surprise on everyone by inviting the Tongs over to his house for dinner on the pretext that they are celebrating Adam's birthday. But he has something up his sleeves as he prepares to make an announcement that will shock everyone. Meantime, Ah Biao is panicky when his envelope of new notes for Chinese New Year goes missing. As Ben and Diana help look for it, Diana realizes that Ah Biao could be starting to lose his memory. Ben snubs Gina when she shows up at TCH to meet a client but when the client gets physical with Gina, Ben decides to step in to help her.
After two failed attempts, Salmah bugs Wafiq to set Nadiah up on a third date with one of his friends. To help Nadiah get around it, Wafiq hatches a plan. Pam and Shruti are starting to find the extended holiday break boring, and they set out to find some part-time work. Jay, hoping to regain his father's trust, finally comes clean with Kwong San about why he chose to come back to KS Foods while Xue Ling finds out more about Jay's life in the US from Shelia.
Ben and Gina are meant to have a date but Gina offers to take Ben to see a doctor instead as his sprain hasn't healed. Nadiah goes for her ‘arranged' date but unknown to Salmah, she has lunch with Wafiq. Could they both be starting to warm up to each other? Shruti is planning to apply for a job at the Digital Media Agency but she is afraid to offend Pam in case she gets the job. Her worries, however, are unfounded when Pam is supportive of her job hunt. Kwong San, meanwhile, has decided to give Jay bigger responsibilities in KS Foods, and Xue Ling is starting to feel threatened.
Tension between Adam and Xue Ling worsens with little things grating them, culminating to a huge fight over at the Tongs during reunion dinner. But after hearing Li Yan's little insight on Adam, Xue Ling seeks out Adam to make peace and agrees to give him the space that he needs. Salmah tries to find out Nadiah's third mystery date and is disappointed to be told by Nadiah that the date did not turn up. And based on the deal struck between Nadiah and Salmah, Salmah cannot introduce any more guys to her. Meanwhile, Jay brings Sheila over to the Lims for reunion dinner. Over dinner, Sheila wins over Kwong San with her business savviness.
It's the Lunar New Year and the Lims and Tongs celebrate. While over at the Rahmans, Norleena observes the interaction between Nadiah and Wafiq and let Sulaiman on about the possible romance between them. Despite his initial skepticism, Sulaiman confirms it when he sees that Nadiah and Wafiq are really comfortable with each other. Sheila, meanwhile, makes a nice impression on everyone except Bee Li, who is skeptical about her because she dumped Jay before. Kwong San, on the other hand, is even more impressed with Sheila when she seeks business advice from him. And Eddie, desperate to get a job, applies to be a relief teacher at Tanglin JC after getting hold of the application forms that Mrs Pereira had given to Zul for Michael.
When Norleena implies that Wafiq and Nadiah may have feelings for one another, it is met with strong disapproval from Salmah, who deems a divorced, single father to be unsuitable for Nadiah. This makes Nadiah ponder if she really might have feelings for Wafiq after how Salmah reacted. Jay's involvement in the family business puts a damper on Xue Ling's morale. She begins to wonder if all the years she had worked in KS Foods would go to waste if her brother takes over and throws her into the sidelines. Chris, meanwhile, is excited about his back-up plan in the form of going into a business venture with Arjun in case the permanent job at KS Foods never materializes. But Diana's skeptical about the whole thing.
Eddie goes for the trial session for the Relief PE Teacher job. However, he gets a reality check when he discovers that Mrs Pereira had Michael in mind for the job instead. During the trial, Mrs Pereira is hovering over him and nit-picking, Eddie is determined to prove her wrong and get the job. Facing a dead-end in search for funding for his aesthetic clinic venture with Arjun, Chris tries his luck with Meera in hope that she will invest in the business. Meera seems to go along with it but she has other ideas. And when Jay comes up with a suggestion to change their core ingredients supplier in an effort to cut down costs, he is met with overwhelming disapproval from Xue Ling and Wafiq as it would ruin a long, working relationship. However, Jay is determined to get his way and Kwong San gives him the go ahead as long as the move benefits KS Foods.
Eddie is late for his first day of work as a Relief Teacher in Tanglin JC. His troubles don't end there as he also gets a harsh lesson-cum-reality check on handling those students who, not so long ago, were his schoolmates. The presence of Sheila continues to threaten Xue Ling and it all comes to a head when Kwong San hints to Jay that Sheila and him should start planning to get hitched. While at the Bhaskars, Shruti's part-time job as a Personal Shopper is met by strong objection from Meera, who thinks the job title is just a classy name for a Salesgirl.
It's Valentine's Day, and Bee Li tries to get Kwong San out of the house for a romantic stroll. After much persuasion, Kwong San agrees but to add to Bee Li's frustration, he invites Sheila and Jay along. Shruti, meantime, starts her first day of work as a personal shopper, but will she be able to survive under her tyrant of a boss? And while Tanglin Coffee House organises a singles event for Valentine's Day, Norleena uses the event as a way for Nadiah and Wafiq to spend some time together. However, Salmah smells a rat and starts spying on them. Over at the Lims, Kwong San is excited about the prospect of Jay proposing to Sheila, but little does Kwong San know that the relationship between them is not what it seems.
An upbeat Kwong San looks forward to starting the Lunar New Year on the right foot with a lion dance performance at KS Foods but things go badly wrong for him. Chris tries to be more gung ho at work and might have taken on more than he can handle, while Xue Ling lets on that she knows Wafiq and Nadiah are now an item. Pam visits Shruti at the boutique to help her out from her the clutches of Kingsley but Shruti ends up embarrassing Pam.
Kalila throws a tantrum at TCH when she reveals she doesn't want Nadiah to be her new mother. This opens up a can of worms that leads to a showdown between Wafiq and Salmah. Chris goes all out to prove he should be hired full-time at KS Foods while Jay goes head to head with Wafiq on a work matter. Lauren meanwhile, visits the boutique that Shruti's working in, starts trying almost every single piece of garment, making a mess, and making things really difficult for Shruti.
Chris's excitement at being made full-time staff is cut short when Nadiah asks him for a copy of his university transcript. He asks Suzanne for help to fake a transcript, but she's swamped with work and meetings. At the last resort, Chris tries to sweet talk Felicia to cover for him. Eddie finds it hard going trying to get the FAN Club students to follow his instructions with Lauren pushes his buttons, sorely testing his patience. Nadiah and Salmah's cold war over Wafiq continues while Shruti gets accused of stealing the limited edition necklace from the boutique.
When Felicia realizes that Chris has been manipulating her, she is devastated. Desperate to win her back to his side so that she will not tell on him, Chris shows up at her home and begs for forgiveness. However, her protective father is there to thwart him. Eddie uses Encik Chua's name to scare the students into cooperation but Lauren is not fooled. Encik Chua tells him he has to get tough on her or he will lose control of the class. Zul's relationship with Juliana seems to be going smoothly but for some reasons, he's troubled by their age difference and something else he can't quite pinpoint.
Norleena signs up for antenatal classes for first-time mothers at the hospital but Salmah, having raised her children based on traditional methods, is not really keen on those Western ways, nor those ‘modern' baby care gadgets that the excited parents-to-be bought. At work, Chris struggles with the consequences of misleading Felicia as Suzanne pushes on with plans for them to apply for their own BTO flat. And at school, Lauren plots to get back at Eddie for humiliating her in class the previous week, while Eddie thinks he has taught Lauren a lesson when he catches her paying another student to do her homework. But to Eddie's surprise, Mrs Pereira comes confronting him with a grave accusation.
The Tongs, together with Shruti and Pam, rally behind Eddie after Lauren accused him of molesting her. Norleena has a health scare and on the advice of Bhaskar's advice, goes for a checkup with her gynecologist as a panicky Sulaiman freaks out. At KS Foods, Peter Tay assigns Xue Ling to work with him on a new marketing plan, much to her surprise, while Adam meets with a potential landlord on Chris's recommendation as he continues to look for a permanent space to run his MMA classes.
Sulaiman and Norleena are conflicted about what to do now that they know about Vanessa's pregnancy and whether they should tell Ben or not. But a chance meeting with Vanessa at Norleena's first antenatal class changes their take on the situation. Xue Ling and Adam's constant arguing spills over to their family when they both forgot to attend Melissa's school's Sports Day, much to Melissa's disappointment. Meantime, Meera helps out at Bhaskar's clinic while Norleena takes some time off. How will she balance being Bhaskar's employee with being his wife?
Old wounds from Diana's and Arjun's break up are reopened when Li Yan finds out that it was Meera who told Diana to leave Arjun. Ben and Gina go on a mani-pedi double date with Sulaiman and Norleena, who are uneasy throughout the session when they thought that Ben was already aware of Vanessa's pregnancy. Over at the Rahmans, Nadiah teaches Wafiq how to cook, and Salmah is furious when she learns about that arrangement.
Adam has his suspicion that Xue Ling is behind the ‘too-good-to-be-true' rental deal for the new MMA gym. He confronts Chris about it and under pressure, Chris blurts out that it is indeed Xue Ling's arrangement and Adam makes things worst by questioning Xue Ling at the office in front of everyone. Meera, still helping out at the clinic, continues to disrupt operations much to Bhaskar's frustration. He knows he can't make the hard decision to fire her so he devised a plan to get Norleena back to work. And as part of his grand plans to prove that Xue Ling is the better choice to run KS Foods, Jay messes up a meeting with a long-term supplier but Peter Tay sees through the scheme.
The investigation into Lauren's allegations that Eddie molested her is completed as Ah Biao and Zul plead with Mrs Pereira on about Eddie's innocence. But Mrs Pereira is sticking by the rules on this one. Will Eddie get to keep his job after this? The fallout between Xue Ling and Adam continues. They are not on speaking terms anymore, resulting in her unintentionally seeking solace from Peter Tay and divulging more personal information than she should. And Chris is still determined to see through the aesthetic clinic plan and his enthusiasm seems to have rubbed onto Arjun.
Xue Ling is feeling the pressure from her strained relationship with Adam and work, only for Peter Tay to offer some support.

Nadiah thinks that Salmah was the driving force behind Wafiq's decision to break off with her, but Kwong San's shifty action when he is around her makes Nadiah think otherwise. And Li Yan finds out about Vanessa's return but she decides to keep the news of Vanessa's pregnancy from Ben.
Eddie, while concerned about Hakim for pulling that inhaler prank on Atiqah, is determined to set Hakim the right path. However, Hakim proves to be a tough challenge for him when he damages Diana's van tyres in a fit of anger. Li Yan, meanwhile, is worried that Vanessa will make things difficult for Ben like before. She arranges to meet up with Vanessa to talk about her baby, her plans and having a future with Ben. Meantime, to keep the act going, Chris arranges for a dinner date with Felicia and it is making Suzanne all uncomfortable.
It is A-Level results day and there's tension and high expectations for the likes of Michael, Shruti, Eddie and Pam. Eddie surprised everyone with better than expected results but Michael's results are not that great as expected. Ben is knocked out by the return of a pregnant Vanessa.

Over at KS Foods, Chris and Felicia flirt a little too openly for Suzanne's liking.
Ben is conflicted whether he should tell Gina about Vanessa. After mustering up much courage to speak to Vanessa about this issue, he panics when Gina shows up at TCH at the same time.

Chris feels the pressure when both Felicia and Suzanne compete for his attention. And things come to a head when Suzanne accuses Felicia of sabotaging her work. Meanwhile, Salmah encourages Li Yan to look for the daughter she gave up for adoption years back.

Bhaskar is furious with Arjun for exploring the aesthetics business with Nadine behind his back, and the defiant Arjun makes things worst.

Misunderstanding between the siblings as Melissa thinks that Michael's poor A-Level result is the main cause of the constant argument between Xue Ling and Adam, but Michael thinks it is her eating disorder that started it all. With fear that Wafiq could actually send her to live with her mother Yasmine and her new husband, Kalila tries to get into Wafiq's good books by being the good and obedient daughter. Over at the Lims, Kwong San and Bee Li are not happy that Adam and Melissa are staying with the Tongs. They want Xue Ling to get them to come back home. Xue Ling manages to convince Melissa but Adam is adamant to stay put.
After Melissa and Adam fail to return home, Kwong San takes it out on Xue Ling, chiding her for not making her marriage and family a priority. He goes one step further and gets Xue Ling to hand over all the work stuff to Jay. And as part of his elaborate plan to break up Xue Ling and Adam, Peter Tay introduces to divorce lawyer to Xue Ling.

Li Yan is still not talking to Chris and Chris is hoping that he can make it up to her. But little does he know that Li Yan is actually distracted with the sad news of her daughter's passing. Lathika, meanwhile has just completed a massage course and bitten by the ‘course-bug', goes on the lookout for more enrichment courses to take. As she tries to share the good news with Wati, she feels left out when she finds Wati spending more time with Fitri. Eddie has been getting phone messages from a mysterious sender. As he tries to keep it a secret, it only pips Shruti's and Pam's curiosity as they hatch a plan to find out the identity of the sender.
Those mysterious messages turn out to be a call for help as Eddie mulls over it authenticity. To ease his conscience, he then decides to help the sender but not before roping Michael in, much to Michael's annoyance.

Meanwhile, Chris is on edge about his impending court sentence and when Suzanne unprecedentedly makes a joke relating to prison life, he takes it personally and lashes out at her. It is Shruti's first attempt at working for Diana, and Diana is a little doubtful if Shruti will be able to pull off the cleaning jobs and gives her the option to back out. However, Shruti is determined to prove her wrong.
Determined to save Chris from going into prison, Li Yan decides to use up whatever savings she has to pay the fine for Chris, only to meet with strong objections from Ben and Diana as they both feel that Chris has been given way too many chances and doesn't deserve to be bailed out every single time. After making Lathika upset with her belittling comment about maids, Shruti tries to make amends. They have a chat and Lathika shares her life story and struggles with Shruti. Gina finally admits to Ben that she is really uncomfortable seeing Ben getting ‘close' to Vanessa. However, Ben insists that he is just giving Vanessa the support she needs, at least until her pregnancy is over.

As the Tongs prepares to go to court in the afternoon for Chris sentencing, Li Yan is upset that Ben is still not willing to fork out the money to pay the fine.

Michael is determined to do well in BMT so he can get a place in OCS but that makes him an easy target for Mark's constant sniping. Eddie's desire to protect his Michael lands him in some comical trouble. Over at the Lims, Xue Ling is in two minds about coming clean with Kwong San about the phantom project but is afraid of the consequences.
After looking through Kwong San's proposal to Boon Ping, Xue Ling is inspired and gets an idea on how to kick start a new business. However, Kwong San is not too interested, which dampens her spirit. While Adam is busy trying to put his gym together, he finds an unlikely business partner in Wafiq as he finds himself turning to him for advice. A work emergency from Diana causes Pam to seek the help of Shruti to help her with cleaning a client's office. Shruti reluctantly agrees and to make matters worse, Shawn, one of the office staff, continues to irritate her as she works.
Things are still a little icy between Kwong San and Xue Ling as both can't find the appropriate time to talk things through. Just when things couldn't get any more interesting, Sheila blurts out to the Lims that Jay and her are engaged. Wafiq is eager to pick Adam's brain about MMA but Adam is determined to throw Wafiq off from investing in the gym. Shruti keeps her distance from Shawn when she helps Pam clean Mr Pang's office again.

In BMT, Michael is worried about the upcoming IPPT trial but he is determined to get a gold in the test. Pam makes a lunch date with her and Shruti to meet Shawn and his friend Firdaus. During the lunch, Shruti feels uncomfortable to be attracted to the annoying Shawn.
Shruti continues to deliberate about whether she should go on a date with Shawn. She starts to get edgy when Shawn doesn't response to her texts to him. It's Jared's first day at the clinic, and while Salmah is generally pleased with his performance, Norleena doesn't think he's cut out for the job. Meanwhile, Li Yan receives a call from a food blogger who's interested to sample the food at the coffee house and write a review.
Eddie is worried about the rest of the platoon finding out what happened between him and PC Jonathan the previous night. Meantime, the recruits prepare for their first book-out by doing area cleaning and preparing for bunk inspection. Will their performance finally be up to standard? Shruti gears up for a date with Shawn, but Bhaskar has other plans in mind for them. The Tongs are busy preparing for Chris' return from prison by making his favourite snack. And at TCH, preparations are also made for the arrival of the food blogger, with Li Yan hoping to get some good publicity from the blog.
Chris is back home after serving a two-week imprisonment. Everyone gives him a warm welcome except for Ben, who is still hasn't forgiven him for causing all the trouble. The food blogger finally turns up with a couple of friends after yesterday's no-show. But things end on a sour note when Ben and Diana insist he pays for all the food that he consumed. Norleena starts her song compilation to play as background music during her delivery while at in camp, Eddie and Mark bond over a common struggle - BMT.
TCH got a negative review from the food blogger and the Tongs decided to spruce up the alfresco area to make it more hip and happening so as to attract a younger crowd. Meanwhile, the tension between Ben and Chris escalates when Ben feels that Chris is getting preferential treatment from Li Yan. Over at the Bhaskars, Meera reveals to Bhaskar that he is not her one and only boyfriend and the revelation somewhat makes Bhaskar really uncomfortable.
Norleena goes into labour, but Sulaiman is well prepared for this day and thinks he has everything under control. Despite his efforts to make sure that all goes smoothly, his headstrong wife refuses to co-operate and insists on going shopping before heading to the hospital. The relationship between Ben and Vanessa continues to blow hot and cold, both finding it difficult to find a balance between friendship and a relationship. To keep herself occupied, Vanessa offers to help Ah Biao with his Tanglin Heritage Project. Chris is tasked with revamping the alfresco area of the coffee house and he is determined to do a good job. Arjun and Diana do their best to boost his confidence.
The wait is finally over and Norleena is ready to give birth. She is insistent on a completely natural birth but complications arise and her birth plans may not go as she wanted. The tension between Vanessa and Ben continues to grow. Ben is frustrated with being the target of Vanessa's emotional outbursts and it doesn't help that Li Yan is always on her side. At the same time, the bickering affects Vanessa physically. She runs a fever and is rushed to the hospital. Realising that Vanessa has an infection that threatens the lives of both mother and child, the doctors do all they can to save her.
After the ordeal of the day before, the Rahmans and the Tongs are thrilled with the latest additions to the family. Sulaiman is the ecstatic first time father who is determined to capture every precious moment with this son. In contrast, Ben feels nothing for little Grace. Joy quickly turns into despair when Norleena finds little spots on her baby. Unable to keep the secret of the genetic disorder to herself, Norleena breaks down and tells Salmah about NF1. Salmah is against keeping the secret from Sulaiman, but Norleena forbids her from telling him. Will Salmah reveal the truth to Sulaiman?
After a difficult and life threatening labour, Vanessa is weaker and more vulnerable than before. Li Yan is determined that Vanessa and baby Grace stay with the Tongs, but Ben is still hesitant. He is willing to help as a friend, but he is not willing to assume the responsibilities of a father. The threat of NF1 weighs heavily on Salmah's mind. She has a million questions about the genetic disorder, but the only way she can get answers is if she swallows her pride and asks Atiqah and Hassan for help. Meanwhile, Mrs Pereira offers to help Ah Biao with the Tanglin Heritage Project.
The day that everyone has been looking forward to - the newborns are finally home from the hospital. Having spent months in preparation for this big day, Sulaiman anticipates that things will go smoothly at home. The new parents are in for a big shock. Vanessa has to decide where she will stay with her baby - at that Tongs or with a friend. Will her mother's obvious disapproval of Ben make the decision easier? And while working on the Tanglin Heritage Project with Mrs Pereira, Ah Biao is overwhelmed by nostalgia as they recount the good old days of living in Tanglin.
Vanessa suggests to Ben that they should go for the paternity test today to settle matters once and for all. She gets upset when Ben gives her the impression that he is hoping he is not the father. Eddie starts to finally get used to BMT life, as Michael encourages him to remain positive. Over at the Rahmans, Norleena and Sulaiman have to contend with Salmah's relatively old-fashioned style of parenting. Chris, worried about the difficulty of finding a full-time job, reaches out to Hassan for advice. Salmah bumps into Hassan at TCH, and when he asks after his newborn grandson, Salmah is uncomfortable.
Salmah is worried when Hassan asks her to meet up, thinking that he might ask to see Rayyan. But Hassan is meeting her for some other reasons. It's Suzanne's last day at King of Sauces, and she continues to feel guilty about how things turned out with Felicia. While in camp, Michael inadvertently gets his whole bunk involved in doing extra work, deepening the rift within the section. Sulaiman, meantime, discovers that his mother's grave has been exhumed, and that in order to find out where her remains are, he'll have to get in touch with Hassan.
Sulaiman has a big confrontation with Hassan, and Salmah is deathly afraid Sulaiman will find out that Hassan and her had a discussion about NF1 amongst other things. Shruti freaks out when she commits a tremendous faux pas on Shawn's social media page. Can she recover from this? Meanwhile, Suzanne agrees on help Wafiq and Adam with their gym's marketing and publicity, which conditions attached. The rift between Michael and Eddie deepens in their BMT training when Eddie thinks that Michael is going over the top with the NS training.
One of the recruits Brandon suffers an injury on a route march because of Michael's over-enthusiasm. And when Michael blacks out in the bunk later, he forces Eddie to keep it secret. Through Salmah, Hassan goes to see his grandson behind Sulaiman's back. Shruti, meantime, has her first date with Shawn, but her happiness is short-lived when she gets her university application results letter.
Bhaskar tries to encourage Shruti to write in to appeal with regards to her university application rejection but his words fall on deaf ears. However, when Shawn suggests that she puts in an appeal, Shruti is determined to do just that. Li Yan is happy and encouraged to see Ben starting to embrace fatherhood and paying more attention to Grace. But Diana warns her that things might be different if the paternity test shows that he is not the father. Jay is trying to mend bridges with Kwong San but Kwong San ignores him, much to his frustration.
Sheila manages to convince Kwong San to spend some quality time with Jay. Kwong San agrees to go for a fishing session with Jay but the night turns sour when father and son start to argue again. Shruti accepts Shawn's invitation to a party but is upset when Shawn didn't introduce her as his girlfriend to his friends. She starts drinking and makes a fool of herself in front of Shawn. And Bhaskar, being the traditional protective father, still can't understand Meera's nonchalant attitude towards Shruti dating Shawn.
After his fight with Kwong San, Jay doesn't come home which worries the entire Lim family including Sheila. However, news comes to them from Diana that he has been in TCH which gives them relief and they try to get him back home. Meanwhile, Vanessa is worried about Grace not gaining any weight since birth and frantically worries about it. Even Ben's reassurance doesn't help and she's adamant to use a breast pump to express her milk for Grace even though it will exhaust her. Meera reprimands Shruti with a warning after she wakes up with a hangover from her drunken night before. Although Bhaskar isn't aware of this, he's still concerned that his daughter is spending all her time with her new boyfriend and not focusing on important things like her university education.
As they get closer while spending time together looking after Grace, Vanessa has the feeling that Ben and her are turning into a real family. But things change quickly when Gina comes by to spend time with Ben. To make things worse, Vanessa's ex-boyfriend comes over to inquire about Grace and the possibility of Grace being his daughter, which begins to sow doubts in Ben's already troubled mind. Having lost faith in Salmah's traditional baby care methods, Norleena is less strict about things and even gets Sulaiman to buy her extra spicy mee siam. When Salmah finds out, she is furious but Norleena is nonchalant which irritates Salmah further. The relationship between them worsens when Norleena tells Salmah to mind her own business and that she is Rayyan's mother and she knows best about raising him. Meanwhile, Adam and Wafiq clash on what is best for the gym, even pulling Jay into their argument. However Adam is forced to acknowledge that opening an exclusive MMA gym might not be the best for his business.
A meltdown following a spilt milk incident leaves Vanessa fearful of her emotional state which might lead her to hurt her baby without knowing it. Norleena blames herself after realising that her eating of spicy food might have caused her baby to have diarrhea. Chris is excited to be Suzanne's model in her promo gym video, only to realise that he is not as buff as he thought himself to be after the video shoot.
Ben and Vanessa receive the DNA results, confirming Ben is Grace's father. Vanessa gives Ben an ultimatum – give up Gina or she'll move out with Grace. Li Yan is devastated after failing to dissuade Vanessa from going ahead with the ultimatum, and Salmah highlights to Li Yan about her pining for her late daughter on Grace – wanting Grace to stay for her own sake rather than Ben's. Adam offers Chris a job at his gym. Chris is proud and happy and tells Li Yan the news. However, Li Yan has other pressing issues in mind and she appears to brush him off, leaving him disappointed. Meanwhile, Ah Biao, Zul and Mrs Pereira take a walk down memory lane around the Tanglin Halt neighbourhood.
Ben is conflicted, and struggles with being a father to Grace while being apart from Gina. Shruti similarly deals with being apart from Shawn, and devises ways to get him to communicate with her. Chris is eager to shoulder more responsibility and share in the family's workload. Everyone's impressed by his work when he reveals the revamped alfresco area at TCH. Xue Ling's plans to start her own skin care business gather pace and she fears it may make Kwong San feel redundant, but Kwong San has bigger worries on his mind. Meanwhile, Mrs Pereira experiences a shooting back pain during a visit to the Tanglin Heritage Trail with Ah Biao, and he rushes her to see Dr Bhaskar.
Xue Ling takes up Jay's offer to do the catering for her makeup party but when she changes the venue to TCH, tensions mount when Jay bumps into Diana there. Norleena gears up for her first day alone with Rayyan as both Salmah and Sulaiman are headed back to work. She's relieved when Diana surprises her at home to lend a helping hand. Shruti can't take her mind off Shawn and Pam worries she might do something desperate. The time has come for Grace's registered parents' names to be indicated on her birth certificate, and Vanessa continues to harbour hopes that she and Ben can still reunite and be a family.
Ben is still smarting from being left out of Grace's birth certificate and Sulaiman is urging him to get his name back in for Grace's own good. Vanessa, on the other hand, is furious when she thinks that Gina and Ben are engaging a lawyer to fight for the custody of Grace. She is determined to hang on to her daughter no matter what. Over at the Lims', Sheila is not happy to see Jay bonding with Kwong San as this will derail her plans to get Jay back to the US with her. She starts to attempt to poison Xue Ling's mind about Diana. Shruti is about to go for her university admissions interview but is more concerned about her date with Shawn after the interview at TCH.
Norleena takes over the planning for Rayyan's cukur rambut (baby's first month hair-shaving ceremony) and Sulaiman is worried about the cost he might have to incur. However, he gets a pleasant surprise from Norleena. Bee Li and Meera are worried about Madam Fatimah's handling of the TLC Fund-raising event but to teach Madam Fatimah a lesson, they decide to let her mess it up instead. Vanessa, not wanting to end up in court fighting for Grace's custody, plays mind games with Ben, resulting in Ben being in yet another fix with Gina. Michael is keen to be considered for pilot training with the Air Force, and signs up for an aptitude test. However, he's surprised when an unexpected competitor emerges from his platoon.
Following his positive result for the COMPASS test, Michael is raring to go and eager to impress during field camp, hoping that stellar performance outfield will make him a shoo-in for an OCS posting. However, he soon finds that field camp is far more challenging than he thought it would be. Meera and Bee Li find themselves in a pickle after they have to no choice but to take over the charity fundraiser organising duties from Madam Fatimah. Ben continues to blame himself for the way things turned out with Gina, and for the mess he finds himself in with Vanessa. Ah Biao tries to help him see things from a different perspective. Mrs Pereira is listless as she waits to admit herself to the hospital for her hysterectomy, worried about going under the knife.
affect his chances of qualifying for OCS. The recruits struggle with digging their shellscrapes, and Michael later makes a startling discovery about one of his section mates. Meera is all prepared for her day of volunteering at Joel Gardner's Support for Migrant Workers' Centre, even bringing along her own teaching material, but Joel has other plans for her in mind. Mrs Pereira is nervous about her hysterectomy procedure, but is even more concerned about being away from school and not being able to attend a students' camp the following week. Meanwhile, Kwong San and Jay continue to seek out possible solutions for Kwong San's financial woes.
Eddie wakes up and realises that his rifle muzzle is missing, but Michael knows that the instructor didn't take Eddie's rifle muzzle, but Julius'. Will Michael tell the truth about what happened? When Madam Fatimah resigns as Chairwoman of TLC, the committee seeks to elect a new Chairwoman. Bee Li proposes that Meera should take up the position. Meanwhile, Jay tries to convince Kwong San to tell about his financial situation to the family but Kwong San refuses and tells him he'll find a way to solve this on his own. When Arjun is cavalier about answering Mrs Pereira's questions about her surgery, he's chastised by Wendy for his poor bedside manner and lack of concern for his patients.
The truth is out about Michael's condition and his army superiors are livid that they weren't informed. Michael has his mind set on OCS, and tries to convince them that's he all right and shouldn't get downgraded.

Jay tries to convince Kwong San to come clean with the rest of the family about his financial losses, telling him that the only way they'll get through this period is if they stand united as a family.
At the hospital, Arjun discovers that the woman he tried to chat up at the bar, Keely, is his new boss. To make things worse, Keely is tough and uncompromising, and expects a high standard of work from her staff.

Sulaiman discovers that Norleena knew about Faisal and Hassan's NF1 the whole time and feels betrayed that it was kept from him. Shruti arrives at Xue Ling's photoshoot not having followed some instructions earlier sent via email, and is chided for her lack of attentiveness. Will she still be able to get the job?

Li Yan and Xue Ling's plans to play cupid backfire. Both Jay and Diana insist that they are nothing more than friends. However, when Sheila hears about the two of them working together, she is not pleased. Determined to get Diana out of the picture once and for all, Sheila goes to TCH to fight for her man.

Sulaiman is a bundle of nerves as he prepares to go for a genetic test to determine if he has NF1. Chris and Suzanne have their hands full with Vivian, Suzanne's needy mother. He even has to pose as the owner of Adam's gym so Vivian will change her negative perception of him.
Vanessa is pleased when Ben agrees to attend yoga class with her, but her mood sours when they bump into a familiar face at the gym. It's Jay and Sheila's wedding day, and the families are both excited about the festivities. Jay tries yet again to get Sheila to drop the assault case against Diana, but has a hard time convincing her of his honest intentions. It's Eddie and Michael first day at their new NS unit and Michael is far from thrilled with the posting.

Sulaiman and Norleena resolve to work things out as a family, fearing the worst as they prepare to receive the results for baby Rayyan's genetics test.
Xue Ling and Felicia have settled into their new office space, but the response to Felicia's social media posts to sublet the rest of the workspaces has been poor. Michael grows frustrated waiting for Lauren to respond to his query about Peter Tay being his father. A concerned Eddie gets Pam to check up on Michael to see how he's been coping. Hassan's condition improves, and Sulaiman and Norleena go and visit together with Atiqah and the children. Meanwhile, Bhaskar is keen to finish unpacking at his new clinic so that he can be ready to open the following Monday, but progress is slow and disorganized Jared isn't helping.
Michael receives a text from Peter asking to meet up. He's in two minds about it, what will his decision be? Joel and Meera need to find new office premises after the rental on their existing place is set to go up. Shruti suggests that they consider Xue Ling's office space. When Sulaiman and Norleena babysit Faisal and Fatimah, they are faced with the responsibility of telling what's happening with Hassan when the kids begin to ask questions about their fathers' health. Meanwhile, Arjun is undecided on what his specialization should be until an incident at the hospital helps him to see things in a different light.
Bhaskar is not too happy about Meera working with Joel, leaving things a little tense between them. Feeling bothered about Meera, a distracted Bhaskar is later informed that a patient he just treated is now the hospital for emergency surgery. Could Bhaskar have overlooked something?

Arjun wakes up to find that he and Keely had spent the night together. How will this affect their working relationship? Ah Biao is called in to be the replacement photographer for Shruti's video shoot for Tanglin High, and the two clash over differences of opinion. Thinking that he might have indirectly caused the death of his patient Mdm Chia, a troubled Bhaskar seeks Arjun's opinion. To make matters worse, Mdm Chia's family turns up at the clinic demanding an explanation.
Meera is shocked to find out the real reason behind Bhaskar's moodiness – Mdm Chia's family has threatened to lodge a complaint against him. To make matters worse, Mdm Chia's daughter, Melody Chia, has blogged about the incident. She hints at Bhaskar's negligence, thereby affecting business at the clinic. Over at the Rahmans, Sulaiman grows paranoid when Salmah leaves to go to Malaysia to visit relatives, and he worries about whether he can be a good father. Love continues to blossom between Diana and Jay as they enjoy being a couple. Meanwhile, Bhaskar grows increasingly uncomfortable with Meera working for Joel.
Bhaskar and Meera continue to clash over Meera's loan to Joel for SMWN, even as Bhaskar deals with the fallout from Melody Chia's damaging blog post about Bhaskar's skill as a medical professional.

Chris and Suzanne get Adam's and Wafiq to sponsor some T-shirts for their marathon team. Peter Tay pays Michael a surprise visit, and leaves Michael with a vague threat. What will Michael do?
Xue Ling and Adam fuss over Michael before he goes for a medical review, but he's distracted by thoughts of taking the paternity test with Peter Tay. Arjun has fallen sick and has no choice but to take MC for the day. However, his mood is lifted when Shruti shows him the webpage she's created for the marathon fundraiser. Sulaiman has doubts about whether pursuing a degree right now is the right move for him and Norleena, considering they have their hands full with Rayyan and Hassan continues to be unwell. Vanessa finally gets the break that she needs from her baby duties but struggles to find someone that's available to hang out with her.
Ben and Li Yan worry that Vanessa's being too hard on herself and isn't taking care of herself well.
