To win the heart of his dream girl Cheung Yuk-neong (Cheang Mang-ha), love-struck hotel heir Pak Kam-lung (Sit Kok-sin) disguises as a waiter only to get close to her. Yee Chau-sui plays Ho Shui, Pak’s servant—also his sidekick in the quest for love. The loyal Ho even goes so far as posing as the finance minister to pull off the master plan. Welltimed slapsticks and mime-like movement from Yee keep the laughs coming. His brilliantly clumsy dancing scene with Lam Mui-mui is easily the comic highlight of the film.
