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.

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?

Kwong San tries to find ways to busy himself with his newfound hobby but ends up messing up the house, much to Bee Li's chagrin.

While Li Yan continues to put up a brave front after getting the news from Li Ting that her daughter whom she had with Bhaskar has passed on
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. And after their chance meeting at TCH the day before where she was very affected by what he said to her, Li Ting decides to talk it out with Bhaskar regarding what happened some thirty years ago. Over at the Lims, Kwong San finally signs off his shares of KS Foods to Peter Tay with much mixed feelings.
As Li Ting get ready to return to Hong Kong, she gets a reassurance from Bhaskar that he will let the past stays in the past and not tell Li Yan anything. Li Ting is relieved and grateful.

In the end, he makes the difficult decision to break up with Juliana. Meantime, after learning that Vanessa's mother is unable to care for her, Li Yan insists that Vanessa move in with them after she gets discharge from the hospital, much to Ben's shock and disappointment. Gina finally pours out her unhappiness to Ben when she learns that Vanessa has moved in with the Tongs. A torn Ben give his word to Gina that he is committed to make their relationship work. But can it last?
Ben isn't happy with Vanessa staying with them and is constantly irritated with Li Yan taking her side and attending to her every need. Things get worse when she tells him to massage Vanessa's swollen and sore feet and before long both of them get into a heated argument. 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. Ben then finds out that it was Chris who fed ideas into Gina's head that made her insecure about their relationship.
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. Pam decides to go ahead and work for Mr Pang, much to Shruti's frustration. As Shruti helps Pam to cover up, she feels really bad lying to Diana.

But Bhaskar has his reservations when he feels that Salmah's decision is all based on looks. Over at TCH, Ben feels bad about not having been more forgiving towards Chris, and as a result, clashes with Li Yan.

An excited Kwong San works hard on a business plan not knowing it's a phantom project conceived by Xue Ling. And Adam's desire to open a gym hits a snag as he struggles to balance the budget.
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. As Shawn continues to hover around her and makes conversation, Shruti is drawn to him and she cannot seem to explain why.

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.

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. Norleena talks to Sulaiman about circumcising Rayyan while he's still a baby but Sulaiman disagrees and instead wants him circumcised when he's older so that the event can be celebrated. During the soft launch of the gym, Adam has to come to Chris' defence when Wafiq worries that it might not be good for business to employ ex-offenders. Meanwhile, Jay becomes more and more suspicious of Sheila's agenda when he discovers that she tried to convince Kwong San and Bee Li to go on a long holiday to the US.
It's celebrations all around as the Tongs celebrate Grace's first month and the Rahmans celebrate Rayyan's. Ben continues to wrestle with his unresolved feelings for Gina, still reluctant to give up his relationship for his daughter. Rayyan's cukur rambut ceremony ends on a sour note when Salmah receives a hostile message from Hassan, asking why he wasn't invited to the ceremony. Meanwhile, Chris and Arjun head out for drinks and Arjun tries his hand at chatting up a woman at the bar after being goaded by Chris. 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. Ah Biao learns from Encik Chua that Mrs Pereira has been on medical leave and visits her at her home to see how she's doing. At TCH, Hassan arranges to meet up with Salmah but the two clash when Hassan reveals his hopes to get more involved in Rayyan's life.
