What, when, where and who
This is a very interesting story about a
jade, and it's three owners' stories. Flora is a jade designer, who got a jade from her old aunt Suen Yin Tsau . From the
jade, she learned the tragic story about Suen Yin Tsau and her lover. This jade is suppose to bring luck and happiness to
life, however it associates with three tragedies...
Flora worked with Damian in a very successful jade company, the two worked hard
together, and soon after, they began to build good chemistry. Meanwhile, Niki came to Hong Kong to find Kevin, who she thinks
is her "brother". After some investigations, Niki found out Kevin is not her brother, and she is also falling love with Kevin.
When things are going well, Flora discovers Damian was already married, and Niki
(let's call her Ceci from now, because I like that name better) is her daughter! Then, Damian's crazy wife came to disturb
Flora. Flora was sad and wanted to break apart with Damian, however, at this time, Damian's crazy wife died, and Damian had
an accident as well.... Flora then decided to be with Damian, soon the two married. At the other hand, Ceci discovered big
secrets of Damian, this made her relationship with Damian breaking apart. Kevin and Ceci found out Damian was the one responsible
for crazy wife's death and Kevin's real father's death....
Story summary and episode guide (skip)
- Dislike Factor
If there is one thing I don't like about the series,
that could be the performances of Flora. Maybe that character does not fit her too well, may be she tries too much and that
make the audiences don't care about her performances. Don't give me wrong, I am a Flora fan, but I am just a little disappointed
with her performances. Especially in the last couple episodes, I can tell that she tries too hard to do the crying or scaring
scenes. But, sometimes, when she tries too hard to perform a scene, it doesn't get a better result. Try to relax a little,
The sudden crushes (Flora + Kevin = The total unmatchable)
the beginning, Flora had a crush on Kevin, for about an episode or two, thanks God, she did give it up, and soon in love with
Damian. Also, for Kevin, he had a crush on Flora, my god, when is this ever going to end? The good thing is, Flora and Kevin
never had a date, otherwise, it will make me yuck! They do not match at all! To the producer, thanks for not making them together
as a couple.
- Love Factor
I DO NOT CARE if you
are a Damian fan or not, but you will be a fan of his after watching his AMAZING performances in this series! His character
is a very successful jade business man, he is a gentleman, he likes to help people, he loves Flora, he loves jade. But, all
these turned him into a villain. His transformation is the key factor in this series, well, you can't call it a transformation,
because he is not perfect to begin with. He has secrets, he has a wife he won't tell anyone about, he caused a best friend's
death. Then later, because of his love toward Flora, he is willing to do anything, including killing his wi fe.... Is he a
true gentleman after all? Or is he a wolf with the sheep skin covered? Damian's performances can tell you everything his character
is going through. The greed, the love, the scary, the tears and the regrets, every performance was perfect!
Kevin is too cute, I can't stop thinking about his character
in this series! His character is funny, responsible, caring, and cute!!!! He and Ceci are so match, because both of them are
so cute together! Kevin did a great job as well, he really knows how to cry! Did Damian taught him some crying skills? ~.~
This story is a great surprise, I really loved it. The entire
story is well organized with a few twists, plus some excitement, plus some scary moments. Guess what, it is rated PG-18, that
means if you are younger than 18, you need to grab someone 18 and older to watch the series with you. Hehe, it is not recommended
to watch the series at night, because it will make you excited, and don't want to sleep. You see, the themevideo seems very
comfortable, and gives the audiences a nice feel, and you might think this story could just be a typical love story, with
a little comedy. When watching the first few episodes, you are right. However, when you continue on the story, more and more
unexpected things are happening one after another, until the end, you realized how special this story is.
Finally, I put an ending into the Love Factor list. Hey,
this is special! Why? I will tell you later (in the Pity Factor section). However, for those of you who did NOT FINISH the
series and those of you who did not even begin the series, I recommend you to leave this review NOW!!!! You will thank me
for warning you this! Watching the ending without knowing what will happen is the greatest experience ever, especially in
this series!!!! Don't forget to watch the series, and come back to read the review ~.~

The Expected and the Unexpected Deaths
WARNING: The following review is for those of you already finish the series,
and those of you who will not blame me for telling you the ending. If you are not any of above, please LEAVE this review
right now!!!! You will thank me after you finish the series first. Oh, before you leave, scroll all the way to the bottom
and read the few last comments I have on the series.... ALWAYS trust TVB Square's advices ~.~
The Expected Death - Damian Lau
Most of you already expected that Damian
will die, of course, all villains don't have a good ending. For Damian, he lost his daughter Ceci, his wife Flora, his baby
daughter Tong Tong, his jade business and the most important of all, he lost himself. When Flora finally told him that she
was scared of him, Damian was heart broken. All he wanted was to be with Flora and Tong Tong, he wanted to give up everything
for them. However, he also gave himself up, he turned into an unforgivable husband and father. Like he said, he is a jade,
a defected one, no matter how hard he tries to fix it, it will still has the fissure....
The Unexpected Death - Ceci
Who do we blame for Ceci's death? Let me go through
them one by one...
(1) Blame the jade: if the jade is a curse, well it sure destroyed the entire Leung family: the crazy
wife died, Stephen died, Damian died, and of course Ceci has to die
(2) Blame Flora, if she didn't ask her to take care
Tong Tong, Damian will not come to her
(3) Blame Kevin, if he didn't go to take the wedding picture earlier, he can protect
(4) Blame Damian, if he didn't force to take Tong Tong away from Ceci, she will not chase her on the street
Blame the car driver, if he drove a little slower, or if he is a more careful driver, he will not hit Ceci so badly
Blame the doctor, why not just wait for Ceci to awake by herself, why gave her another operation?
(7) Blame the producer,
why gave the audiences so much hope, and finally kill Ceci?
- Best Scenes
1. When Flora first met Damian, she kept calling her
"uncle", it is so funny, then Damian taught her some lessons
2. When Kevin and Ceci finally got together, those two are
just so cute together
3. When Ceci found out her father is Flora's boyfriend, that part is really exciting!
Kevin asked Ceci to marry her, so sweet ~.~
5. Kevin and Damian's crying scenes, those two guys know how to cry!!!! Their
tears make me heart break as well
6. The ending, I can say it is the most perfect one in the recent years!
- The Performances
best actor award goes to Damian, the best supporting actor is Kevin. Flora tried a little too much, and she needs to relax
a little. Niki (Ceci), she is new, she still needs improvement, being cute is not enough, but I believe she has room to improve.
- The Storyline
Is the jade a good luck charm, a curse or a lesson?
It is a good luck charm because the lovers can meet each other. The three owners all had their great love story because of
the jade. The jade is a curse because of the tragedies, the first owner and her son died, Michelle Yip (the second owner)'s
baby died, Flora's husband's entire family died. The jade is a lesson because it teaches us that the jade doesn't control
an owner's destiny, it is us, who are responsible for all wrongs. No matter what, this jade story has a deep impact on me,
and I believe if you watch the series, you will too. I love the story, because it makes you think a lot of possible outcomes,
it makes you surprise by adding a few twists, it makes you sad by bringing in the tragic end.
- Worth Watching?
To all of you, this is the MUST see, I don't care
if you are or aren't a fan of any actor or actress in the series. Put those thoughts behind you, and go rent the series! You
will not regret it!
