Welcome to In Love With Silver Chambers of Sorrows, a sister blog/site of the original, In Love With TVB. The surprisingly intriguing series has wowed many of us viewers, including me. In Love With TVB has done many posts focusing on Silver Chambers of Sorrows and has now decided to open up a branch specifically for it. Hope you enjoy going through this blog and hope you will or have enjoyed watching Silver Chmabers of Sorrows. To vist pages, just go through the navigation.
o Silver Chamber of Sorrows, a series that was not highly promoted, a grand production or contains the most popular cast was able to peak at 42 points, rumored to have beat Liza Wang, Myolie Wu and Bosco Wong’s War of In-Laws II
o Originally, Patrick Tang was suppose to be Zi Sing and not Jack Wu
o Christine Ng doesn’t like acting for period dramas and often declines them, this is a series she made an exempt for
o Originally Nancy Sit was afraid that her motherly image would be ruined by her Siu Dip role and was going to leave during the early filming stages
o It has been 6 years since Shirley Yeung and Nancy Sit have co-operated together
o Although the series is tragic, the cast once off screen loves to fool around and laugh their heads off. They also help each other a lot too since everybody is very professional
o Many of the abusive scenes are real, For example in episode 4, when Shirley Yeung is being whipped by Rebecca Chan
In episode 13, when Rebecca Chan was repetitively smacked by Nancy Sit While filming this scene, Rebecca had offered to let Nancy smack her with a stick. She had to keep her mouth closed with her lips in. Both veterans were hurt; Rebecca more painfully on the mouth (as can see in photo) and Nancy pulled some arm muscles while trying to carefully but painfully hit Rebecca
o In the final episode, everyone questions how Ng Wai Kwok’s Sheung Wan could have possibly survived the car crash when it made a nose dive down a cliff. Apparently there wasn’t enough time so TVB had to cut it out. Which is why sometimes the scenes are sort of cut off due to the fact that they were running on time
o In order to suit her role, Nancy Sit was actually given more padding and wore many layers of clothes to get the fat image
o Nancy Sit and Paul Chun, both childhood stars/ friends has only filmed 2 series together, including Silver Chamber of Sorrows. After 40 years of knowing each other, their cooperation is considered very low compared to other veterans
o The theme song was originally to be sung by Nancy Sit or Ng Wai Kwok (he can sing?) but both decided that it would be best to have someone else sing it this hints that these two cast may be the leading stars of the show (incase you are still wondering)
o While Silver Chamber of Sorrows was airing, Christine Ng and Nancy Wu were participating in Strictly Come Dancing II, Paul Chun paid them a visit both at practice and as a judge at the competition. He even commented on Nancy Wu’s dancing skills.
o Nancy Wu actually had wish for some more screen time for some bickering with Rebecca Chan but was killed off in episode 11
o In the cover of the series, there is one man in the picture who only plays a cameo in the series. He makes no contribution to the actual plot while the female actress who plays Siu Dip’s personal paid, Auntie Mui who has an important role isn’t in the picture.
o Shirley Yeung in real life is really afraid of frogs and cried when she had scenes where she interacted with them
o Although in the actual series, Nancy Wu’s Fei Fei is always seen in the water for a mere 10s but in real life, she spends a much longer time in the freezing cold water
o Although Nancy Sit doesn’t remember, but Ng Wai Kwok and her have actually cooperated together before for a picture and Ng Wai Kwok has kept it up till today.
o In the scene where Nancy Sit, Ng Wai Kwok and Shirley Yeung are crying in front of their ancestor’s room, Shirley wasn’t able to cry the way the director wanted and had to constantly apply eye drops. In the end though, the director decided to only have Nancy Sit’s crying into the series and faded Shirley off.
**wow, they must have done this scene many times cause even Nancy’s crying sounds…eh terrible but in the actual series, in which the director most likely chooses the best scene, she does a lot better.
o One of the topics, male having more power than females actually is really relevant to modern day woman too. The director/ producer made a comment when he read someone post their relevant issue.
**It’s actually still quite relevant to many of us women. My father for example, tends to treat my brother much better. It is important for him to do well but when it comes to a female, it’s less of an issue. I remember one time when I wasn’t able to do an errand and my dad said to me, “There’s no point in being good in academics if you can’t even do such simple task.” I literally was like WTF?? Because one being that he wanted me to grab him a tool and he said it in Chinese. How the heck am I suppose to know that it meant for the sanding thingy? Secondly, psh if my brother wasn’t able to do something he wouldn’t say shiet. Thirdly, if it didn’t freaking matter if I do well in school then why the heck did you discipline me until I did?! BUT before I drag along and getting emotional, I would stop there.
And that's all for now on Silver Chamber of Sorrows: Did You Know?

*****WARNING: spoilers ahead*********
Living by ancient customs Smiles can only be slight smiles Pain can only be slight pain Life, maturity, sickness and death Separates the compelled from the arranged
Sheung’s Silver Chamber is one of the largest gold jewelry companies in Foshan in the Guang Dong province of China. It has established its importance and connections for several years. No matter where the Sheung’s go, they are looked up to and no one dares to disrespect them. Yet behind all the rich and glory is a family ruled by ancient customs and betrayal. Being women was like being an animal. Either give birth to a son to establish the next generation or find yourself to live life in shame. Men can lust all they want while making one simple mistake can cause a beating for the women. Silver Chambers of Sorrows takes you to see China’s adaptation to new legal structures in which family beating is not accepted and drowning your wife is considered illegal. Women would always get the disadvantage but it would not be long before the Sheung Family’s women strike back…
My Notable Characters:
Sheung Hang (Hung) aka Big Master, Master Sheung or simply Master Sheung Hang is the owner of the Silver Chamber which was passed along to him from generation to generation. As the eldest son and master of the Sheung family, he was raised to expand the Sheung Family for a future generation and maintain the family business. Being a very traditional man, his acts are selfish and he is stubborn. In order to save the family business, he even tricks his younger brother into marriage. He loves glory and he will demolish those who try to ruin it for him. Yet what comes around goes around, and things will not always go the way he wants it to…
Played by Paul Chun: Bravo to Paul!! Usually he plays the nice guy in series but in Silver, he does not fail as the villain. His character is very schemeful and too filled with traditional customs. Everything he does is all meant to lead to his own desires. He’s cruel and at one point, he just seemed inhuman. Paul really plays this character well and he does have that “manly” aura. His facial expressions and his tone of voice are terrific!
Choi Siu Dip aka Madame (Dai Lai Lai), House Keeper ( Dai Dong Ga), Siu Dip Choi Siu Dip was from a well bred family and was arranged into marriage with Sheung Hang. She was only able to bore a daughter and after many more attempts, she was unable to bore another child again. Sadly, one of her personal maids she married along with seduced Sheung Hang and became the second wife. Siu Dip was humiliated and further more so when the maid was able to bore a son for the family. Yet she is highly respected by everyone for her work as a house keeper and a mother. She is trusted by Sheung Hang and is often the one he makes decisions with. Feeling she did not do her part in helping to proceed the family, she does all she can to please her husband. She even finds herself sacrificing her daughter for her husbands needs and looking away from her conscience of ruining her daughter’s future. But eventually she wakes up and finds herself doing things against her husband’s wishes. Her place in the family begins to tumble…
Played by Nancy Sit: Nancy truly fits her title as “Ah Jie!” She was one of the enjoyable actresses to watch in this series. Her expressions and actions to be evil is pretty heart shattering because I was literally scared of her. She also didn’t fail to have that “in charge” aura and I cheered whenever she was handling things. The character Siu Dip is a complex character, she’s smart but she isn’t capable to do everything. She is evil but you can’t blame her. At first I didn’t really like the character because she seemed pretty weak to me and I was really frustrated but eventually I realized who she truly was. I absolutely loved her! Nancy Sit didn’t fail to play this role, whether she was crying, yelling or simply being capable, it was captivating.
Ching Sau Hang aka 3rd Mistress or 3rd sister in-law Sau Hang, since marrying into the Sheung Family was given the privilege of living a peaceful life. She was careful to not get into trouble and was barely ever forced to do things she didn’t want to do. But the moment she saw Sheung Wan again, her hurt burned with anger and was dragged into trouble. She found herself doing everything to make him jealous or make him notice her. But her love for him overcame her hatred and that moment began her troubles. She was not trusted by Sheung Hang and was given a beating. She realized her best friend in the family had deceived her and Sheung Wan was refusing to elope with her. Twisted by love and hate she finds herself no longer trusting anyone. And those who have hurt her will have to regret…
Played by Christine Ng: A splendid performance by Christine Ng. Although the character, Sau Hang I had found despicable at times and foolish, Christine really played the part well. Sau Hang’s character is more complex than Siu Dip because the character does lots of evil deeds but she also feels guilty. She often finds herself having split personalities and a bad addiction to alcohol. Christine was able to express those emotions really well, and I haven’t seen such performance since Charmaine Sheh’s role in 2000’s Heavenly Sword & Dragon Sabre. Although Sau Hang takes my negative remarks but Christine gets my thumbs up.
Everybody gave it their best and I loved many of the actress/actors! Whether it was the head maid, Dung Mui (sorry unsure of her real name) or Rebecca Chan’s Nin Wong, everyone played their part well. Their were some that didn’t captivate me as much but the rest of the cast makes up for it :D
Family Locks: One of the themes, from beginning to end was freedom. The women of this story suffer so much pain, that they all want to leave the Sheung Family. At first, it appeared like only Sau Hang wanted to, but by the end of the show, it turns out many of them did and the final one to admit it, was Siu Dip. They’ve all had enough of the fights for power and they’re all sick of being abused by Sheung Hang. From what appeared to be a desire for only one woman, turns out to be a desire for all of them. They no longer want to be trapped behind the Sheung’s locks, they are tired and they are sick of it. Power no longer becomes worth craving for.
The Chemistry The Chemistry:
Sheung Wan x Sau Hang: Do they really love each other? Yes but I don’t think the relationship was built strong enough. Sheung Wan was always there for Sau Hang, trying to protect her and save her. Sau Hang, went through all that trouble, just so she could be with him. But what their love really lacked were some actual “couple” scenes. They had scenes where they were…hugging but it always ended up being Sheung Wan pushing her away. They never did have that moment where they were seen having fun together or a moment of understanding. They were the main couple yet I felt there was no warmness in it. TVB made this couple seem like they suffer so much together but they forgot to actually add in moments of actual “love” in it. I really enjoyed how they finished this relationship; there was finally that “understanding” between them.
Zi Sing x Chau Guk: They started off really funny because Zi Sing was really a jinx to Chau Guk. As much as Zi Sing tries, Chau Guk would not like him. There wasn’t a chance for them to actually develop a relationship until the end because during the whole time, Zi Sing was still trying to woo her. If there were more after the ending, with them, I’m pretty sure they’d be a cute couple.
Sheung Hang x Siu Dip: They didn’t marry out of love and throughout the story; we know Sheung Hang doesn’t love her. But towards the end, TVB gave them “couple scenes” and you can tell that although they do not exactly love each other, they do have a relationship. They both understand each other really well and at one point in time, you could tell Sheung Hang had really loved Siu Dip. I think it was because Sheung Hang was busy with the other wives and the business that he neglected his feelings. It was really surprising since in an interview, it was stated that they aren’t suppose to have an actual relationship but by the end of episode 16, and the beginning of episode 17 you notice it.
Sheung Hang x Sau Hang: This was a single sided relationship. Sheung Hang I believe actually loved Sau Hang. There were many scenes where Sheung hang just treats her better and times where he shows his true feelings towards her while she’s unconscious. It showed a really different view of Sheung Hang and you can tell he does have some softness. Even when he found out all Sau Hang has done to him, he saves her and sets her free.
Siu Dip x Sau Hang x Nin Wong x Fei Fei: Although they are all love rivals but besides the times when they are scheming against each other, there are times when you see some “sister-ness.” At some of the most down times, in regards to her son, Nin Wong actually turns to Siu Dip for help. Sau Hang and Siu Dip do look out for each other and treats each other like sisters. Fei Fei does listen to Siu Dip and bickers with Nin Wong. In a way, behind the scemes, they all ended up having the same desire, which was to be free from the family locks.
I decided not to analyze the song but I can tell you that this theme is really evident in this series. If you are interested in knowing, I can suggest you waiting for MetalAZNWarrior @ TVB Musing because I am anticipating this article of his too when he has finished Silver Chamber of Sorrows.
Silver Chamber of Sorrows:
The Chinese meaning, I have no clue if it relates to the story but the English title, it really does. The Sheung’s Silver Chamber, it caused lots of deceiving. For this business, Sau Hang and Sheung Wan were split apart. For this business, Hor Yi was forced into an arranged marriage. For this business, Sheung Hang did a lot of harmful things to protect it. For this business, a lot of characters had suffered to keep it running. Behind the beauty of the chamber that it represents, is the many misfortunes of the family.
The Ending Thoughts:
I’m really glad TVB didn’t choose the either really sad or a really happy ending. They gave one that suited the series, there were some good things that happened but the sad things forever remained. The series started off with Siu Dip and they ended it off with Siu Dip. The themes of this story were not forgotten and they were all given a conclusion.
Why I love this series so much:
The theme remained from beginning to end. I really don’t like it when series end off on a different tone from the beginning.
The series constantly improved. It just keeps getting better and better. It doesn’t ride a roller coaster where it has some high moments and some low moments. You can literally see that from its ratings.
It’s different.Although it has been compared to War and Beauty, War and Destiny and Heart of Greed, the feeling is very different. In War and Beauty, it was literally schemes after schemes. War and Destiny, it was more on a romance side with pure feelings. Heart of Greed is like dramatic family feud. At first, I though that was what Silver Chamber of Sorrows was all about ( I am going to write up an analogy between these 4 series) but it turned out to be different.
The series didn’t rely on its cast. A lot of the time, we judge series by the cast. People don’t need to even watch the series and would decided whether or not the series would be good. This series didn’t have the golden actors i.e Bobby, Esther, Gigi or Ada. It doesn’t have the fa dans like Tavia, Linda or Myolie. Even the veterans aren’t made up of Liza, Adam, Louise or Michelle. Don’t get me wrong, this series is still made up of a terrific cast (I LOVE THEM ALL!!) but it isn’t ones many people - especially TVB appreciate. Which is what made the series all the more lovable. It really shows that talent or best series dont have to be made up of “A – list” actors or whoever is popular for thier role, to be good. I cant tell you how many comments I’ve read where people refuse to give this series a chance because it doesn’t contain their term of “A – list” cast. Just because they aren’t in there, they determine this series to be a failure. But Silver Chambers of Sorrows proved it wrong and was able to make people drop their glasses “deet ngan geng”
So, I’m really hoping that people would give this series a chance, and not base it on a 1 episode case. I was going to give up on Forensic Heroes II cause I didn’t like its first episode but I decided to watch a bit more and I find I kind of like it. Don’t watch this series with a certain view on what will happen. Keep an open mind and you might be surprised.

Also hope you like my new layout!! I made it myself :D
The ratings for Silver's final week was really good!! The average ratings were 34 points!!! But the series peaked at 40 points in the ending episode, even thought it did not have a happy ending. That is a total of 252万 people watching in that episode!!! WOOO!!!!! And just in case you guys dont believe me.... the originaly article is here: 由薛家燕、伍咏薇、胡定欣等主演的无线剧集《银楼金粉》向来收视一般，到上周大结局收视报捷，虽然没有大 团圆结局，但结尾时段高至40点(约252万人收看)，平均收视上升2点达34点。至于由无线福将欧阳震华主演的剧集《法证先锋II》，上周首播收视高 开，最高收视35点，平均收视33点，上升1点。由于《法证先锋II》首周反应热烈，无线安排《法》在上周六和周日深夜时段回放，让观众重温《法》精彩片 段，而往后的周六、日将不会有此安排。另外，《铁甲无敌奖门人》上周收视34点，上升6点之多，最高收视为35点。 http://ent.tom.com/2008-05-27/001F/11231592.html although some sites says it peaked at 37 points, either way it's still very very good for Silver Chambers of Sorrows
I was lucky to find the full CD version and decided to share it with all of you...it's really different from my long version I found but still nice to listen to.
Photos taken from TVB.com that I liked :D
As well, I just noticed that there were commercial scenes that were originally cut out when i watched it and it wasnt until recently did I know there were any. So sharing some of it with you guys (sorry kind of bad quality)
Side note: I think this is one of the series where TVB used a lot of photoshop for..it's really pretty. :D
I've stopped posting any more reviews because now I think I'm at the point where I'll basically tell you everything!! So much is happening, its unbelievable!! I never seen such abuse before to women...I cant wait to see the final 2 hr long episode!!!
As for my upcoming updates as to what is going on after SCOS finish airings..

Paul Chun’s son hope's to join the industry to become a singer
Paul Chun Pui who plays the Evil Master in “The Silver Chamber of Sorrows “ and Charmaine Li attended Nancy Sit’s Metro Radio interview yesterday. Nancy stated “ The Silver Chamber of sorrows “ viewer ratings for last Wednesday was 34 points which broke the record for the highest ratings this year for a series broadcasted at 8pm”. Although the series has a sad bitter storyline, the cast members had a lot of fun working together. Paul would often invite the cast and crew for dinner which indicated their good working relations. Paul explained that he started out as a Child actor similar to Nancy Sit. He started acting at the age of 3 years old and is very close with real brother’s John Chiang (actor) and director Lee Dung Shing. He laughed that because he is the oldest they used to be afraid of him but when they grew up Paul became afraid of them because of their powerful abilities in acting.
Asked whether his son feel’s pressure as the family are involved in the Entertainment circle? Paul replies that his son is hoping to join the industry to become a singer. Even though Paul feels that the entertainment circle is very hardwork and too competitive he will respect his son’s decision and will support him.
It is believed that the 8pm has a curse where it can never get high ratings. Besides War of In- laws 2 (this was from an article), no other series airing during that time in the year 2008 has the ratings ever been high. Silver Chambers of Sorrows, which was never highly anticipated by people due to the lack in VERY popular stars has surpassed that and broke the record!!
Congratulations Silver Chambers of Sorrows!!! WOOT WOOT!!
Now my entire blog is Silver Chamber Of Sorrows!!! :D
Thanks very much to Janeal!!! Janeal made this layout for me tehheee..and ofcourse I requested it to be Silver Chamber theme. Phew...took me forever to add in my own codes..in stead of the easy way blogger usually provides. Anyways I'm loving Silver Chambers!!!
Oooo..anybody like the avatar i made??? teehee i made it :D and of course..its Silver Chamber!!!
Nin Wong (Rebecca Chan) continues to cause trouble with her words leadin to her sister in-law (as in Sheung Family's 3rd daughter) to be punished the mother in-law (Suet Nei). Luckily Sheung Wan (Ng Wai Kwok) arrives on time to save her.
Not learning from her mistakes, Nin Wong continues to spread rumours and gossip about her making her life difficult.
Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) was furious when she heard Nin Wong's false accusation and ordered her to follow her.
At the ancestor room, Nin Wong is told to kneel down and Siu Dip lectures her.
Nin Wong could care less.
Nin Wong: What makes you think you can hit me?
Siu Dip: The fact that I am your mistress and you are my maid. The fact that I am the elder one and you are the younger one!
A dispute began between Siu Dip and Nin Wong and Nin Wong began to step over the border causing Siu Dip to punish her.
Siu Dip used a ruler to smack Nin Wong's mouth many times until her mouth was red and began to bleed.
Siu Dip: I don’t care if you feel it’s unfair! I’m warning you, every time you say something wrong means every time I will hit you!
Meanwhile, Sau Hang (Christine Ng) was haunted by Fei Fei (Nancy Wu) and worried she was going to take revenge on her.
Sau Hang began to turn to alcohol for relief. She continues to believe that everybody was wrong and she was just doing her job.
Towards the end, Siu Dip and Hor Yi (Charmaine Li) were finally okay again. Both of them worry of the fate of Sheung's 3rd daughter. If Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) treated his daughter so poorly, hope is dim for his sister.
My Thoughts: Oh my gosh, Fei Fei is soo freaky!!! Sau Hang is getting crazier! Ha!! Siu Dip finally punishes Nin Wong!!! There are some other information about this scene but I'll write it up in my fianl review..:P I have a feeling SHeung Hang is going to be selfish again and screw his sister over. >:P
Side Note: Oh my freaking gosh!! Is it possible that all the evil characters show up in one episode??? ARgh... whoever wrote Silver, they did a good job of portraying the evil characters!!!
Sheung Family Turned Upside Down
The episode starts off with Hor Yi (Charmaine Li) finally being allowed free from the attic. Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) angrily yells at her and seeing this, Sau Hang (Christine Ng) goes and comfort her. While chatting about a women's fate, Hor Yi accidently tells Sau Hang that it was Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) who helped break the arranged marriage.
Meanwhile, Siu Dip finds out Sheung Hang intended to kill Fei Fei (Nancy Wu) and tries her best to warn her but she is interferred. Fei Fei is captured at the moment she started fooling around with Sheung Wan's brother - in law (Eric Li). Sheung Hang gathers people to beat them and send them to the river.
During this time, it is the moment of confrontation between Siu Dip and Sau Hang. Everything began to make sense and now Siu Dip knows that if Sau Hang was not going to let go of Fei Fei and she herself wont be either. Sau Hang intends to take revenge.
At the river, Sheung Wan (Ng Wai Kwok) and Wing Tung (Winnie Yueng) are threatened / black mailed by Sheung Hang. Sheung Wan has no choice but to oblige in order for the lives of his brother in law and Fei Fei.
Back at home, Siu Dip continues to worry if Fei Fei was alright. She goes to Sheung Hang and finds that Sau Hang was with him and that he knew the things Siu Dip has done to rebuttle him. (Sau Hang told on her) He angrily threatens her again causing Siu Dip to be flooded with pain and anger.
At the end of this scene, we can tell that Siu Dip and Sau Hang have sort of switched places. Sheung Hang now only trusts Sau Hang.
Later on that night, Sheung Hang tests Sau Hang's loyalty through killing Fei Fei.
Another character enters the story which is Sheung Family's 3rd daughter's mother -in law (Suet Nei). This mother in law was amrried to a lawyer that was given special treatment by the Emperor. With this status she is picky, rude and single minded. She brings lots of trouble to the Sheung Family!
Here the Sheung Family's 3rd daughter just accidently said the wrong card ( the in-law is blind) and as punishment, the mother in law pours hot tea on her!!
My Thoughts: I cant believe this but there are soo many more people to hate now!! X Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) X Sau Hang (Christine Ng) X Nin Wong (Rebecca Chan) X Mother - in law (Suet Nei)
I cant wait to see episode 13 though!! Siu Dip finally releases some anger!!! And Sau Hang is going to be haunted for what she did. I swear, I really hope Sau Hang clears up and realize that the real bad guy is Sheung Hang!! She's practically ruining the lives of everyone!!! First Wing Tung (Winnie Yeung), then Fei Fei, then Siu Dip. ARGH!! She use to be such a nice person!!!
In this episode, one of the highlights was the affair of Fei Fei (Nancy Wu). Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) became suspicious when she noticed both had dirty sandy feet. She then decided to test them again and this time, she was sure.
Meanwhile, Fei Fei is hauted by thoughts of her unborn child haunting her. She accidently reveals the truth and Sau Hang over hears (Christine Ng).
At night, while Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) was with her Siu Dip felt it was best to tell her assumptions to him. To her surprise, he gave no emotion and suspects that he already knew. What surprised her most was that Sheung's Silver Chambers were in some business troubles and Sheung Hang still wanted to leave with the entire family to pay a visit to a dead relative. Fei Fei and the other partner were exempted from this trip, leaving them both alone at home.
Back with Hor Yi (Charmaine Li), who was now locked up in the attic was still depressed and unwilling to see anyone. Ever since her father and punished her, she had many temper tantrums. Chao Guk (Shirley Yeung) who was delivering some food to her was asked to give a hankerchief to Zhi Sing (Jack Wu). Unluckily, Nin Wong (Rebecca Chan) picked up this hankerchief.
Nin Wong found out the hankerchief was stitiched with Hor Yi and Zhi Sing's name. Nin Wong who hated Siu Dip decided to spread rumours about her Hor Yi.
The rumours were so horrible that Sai Jo found out and gathered people to beat up Zhi Sing for getting Hor Yi pregnant (rumour). Luckily, just in time Siu Dip arrives to see a commotion but the real drama is how she will react when she finds out that people have been spreading rumours about her daughter. As well as to how every body knew about the secret between Sheung Hang, Siu Dip, Hor Yi and Dung Mui (Auntie Mui)
My Thoughts: Based on the next episode's trailer, Christine will get her revenge on Nancy Wu. It seems like Nancy Wu is going to be in deep trouble in the next episode!! As well, this episode also shows who Paul's favorite wife is...but I wont tell that out until I write my review for this series. Rebecca's a really....B*TCH!!!! But if I'm correct, she's going to have to pay for what she does!! >:] ^ but brave to her for acting these roles soo well.
The episode starts off with Hor Yi (Charmaine Li) running away to escape her arranged marriage. Luckily Choi Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) was able to find her before she went any further.
Back at home, Siu Dip scolds her daughter for being so ruthless but is angered when her daughter yells back. Hor Yi confronts her mother that she feels she (Siu Dip) would do anything for her father (Sheung Hang) and that she (Hor Yi) refuses to be her dog anymore. This caused a major outburst of anger from Siu Dip.
After lecturing Hor Yi, Siu Dip is confronted by her 2nd sister-in law (Winnie Yeung) and is overheard by Sau Hang. Sau Hang bursts out in disappointment that the one she trusted the most was the one who hurted her the most.
Meanwhile, Hor Yi continues to try to escape but Siu Dip’s intelligence was much higher. Even Chao Guk (Shirley Yeung) began to disobey her. She had no choice but to use the family punishment.
Chao Guk had two options, either she brought punishment tools to punish Hor Yi or all the maids and servants in the household were to be punished.
The scene becomes more and more scarier as Siu Dip picks out the whip but Chao Guk’s comment makes Siu Dip stop
“In order to protect all the maids and servants in the household, you rather sacrifice little mistress ( Hor Yi) than to harm everyone else. You now know how I felt when I had to make the same decision 8 years ago!! ( referring to deceiving Sau Hang)
No body understands the troubles Siu Dip has and it didn’t help that everyone treated her the enemy. Siu Dip knows she made the wrong decision back then but she cant do anything to replace the shattered heart of Sau Hang. All she can do is wish her the best and try to help her out. In this scene, Chau Guk enters the room explaining that she understood the woes of Siu Dip and that she was grateful Siu Dip was willing to go through all that trouble to explain to her.
This scene makes Chau Guk and Siu Dip seem like mother and daughter since Chau Guk was able to see the things Siu Dip was trying to do and the way they talked to each other was very warm.
Meanwhile, Sau Hang was falling ill due to all the things that have happened. The other wives hopes to cure her by taking her to a priest since the doctor was unable to cure her. Sheung Wan (Ng Wai Kwok) rushes into the temple and angrily yells at his sister in-laws. Sau Hang is then taken to the hospital.
On the other hand, Fei Fei has finally recovered and is back out into enjoying her modern culture. She then sees her ex again and trouble begins to stir.
My Overall Thoughts: Bravo to Nancy Sit for being able to deliver such a performance in this episode!! Very convincing!! I was really scared when she yelled and stuff. I also pitied Siu Dip because everyone just saw her actions to be evil and Siu Dip knew she was wrong but everyone just wouldn't let her explain herself. I have a feeling Sau Hang is going to do something very terrible to Siu Dip based on the trailers for the series. Siu Dip's life is going to be living hell for the next few episodes or she will be planning something bigger in the middle of the drama!! As well, looks like Fei Fei might have an affair...which is really bad. Especially since its with a man she's related to.
Women's Woes Sorry guys for not posting up 4 and 5 but my files are on another pc so I'm posting 6 first.
The scene starts off with the cries of Sau Hang (Christine Ng) from the beating she got. Angrily she finds herself frustrated and yells at Chao Guk(Shirley Yeung). Sheung Wan’s wife (Winnie Yeung) decides to try to calm and help her to repay for her troubles. This was the beginning of their friendship.
On the other hand, Sheung Wan’s brother in-law decides to pay the Sheung’s a visit and already he stirs lots of trouble. He secretly reminds Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) that the only reason he (Hang) cares so much about the Shum’s (Wan’s in-law) is because Sheung’s Silver Chamber depended on them. This caused Sheung Hang to be upset.
With the interrogation of the in-laws, Sheung Hang tells his wife, Choi Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) that he is intending on marrying off their daughter, Hor Yee (Charmaine Li) to another Gold company for business reasons. Siu Dip tries to introduce Hoi Yee to her future husband but finds that he is nothing but a spoiled brat that uses money to harm others.
At the same time, she meets Zi Sing (Jack Wu) whom she finds very interesting with his kind personality and extravagant experiences outside of the Chinese culture.
Siu Dip later reminds Hor Yee to spend more time with her future husband but she explains on his bad points. She refuses to marry him and Siu Dip who loves her daughter so much, she tries her best to talk it over with her husband. Sadly her attempt was responded by words of furry.
Siu Dip tries to convince Hor Yee that living the good life is wonderful. She takes her to the temple where a priest read Hor Yee’s relationship fortune. Upon hearing her mother’s persuasion of living the good life, Hor Yee angrily rips the paper.
Hor Yi : If the person is good I have to marry or the person is bad and I have to marry then what’s the point of living a good life?!
Hor Yi leaves in frustration not knowing the pain her mother is going through.
The Trailer for Episode 6: *credits to TVB*
I'm really excited to see episode 7 because from the trailer, this episode is where everyone sees the more evil side of Nancy Sit's character Choi Siu Dip and a lot is going on! There's going to be a lot of drama and lots of problems!! on the side note: I dont like the new characters added, they're real jerks!
The Jinx In this episode, Fei Fei (Nancy Wu) has officially become the Sheung Family’s 4th wife. In this scene Nin Yung (Rebecca Chan) complains about not being served tea in the morning ( like tradition). Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) snaps back with a remark which makes me laugh.
Whoever writes the script for Siu Dip and Sau Hang (Christine Ng), they’re good with snappy remarks! Nin Yung’s face turns black.
Later on, the series turns its cameras to Chao Guk (Shirley Yeung) who is the personal maid of Sau Hang but was bought as a child by Siu Dip. Chao Guk is very loyal to Sau Hang and is grateful to Siu Dip.
Chao Guk later meets again with her jinx, Chow Zi Sing (Jack Wu) who brings nothing but bad luck to her! He breaks her Buddha which cost her $2 plus the jade Siu Dip gave her. Then when he pays her back, she got so excited she bumped into Dung Mui aka Auntie Mui who was the leader of the maids and breaks her jade bracelet. Chao Guk ends up paying Aunti Mui back with the money Zi Sing just gave her , plus deductions from her pay check for 4 months!!
Later, Nin Yung, Siu Dip, Fei Fei and Siu Dip’s daughter (Charmaine Li), are playing mahjong. In this scene Nin Yung who is still bitter from not being served tea, constantly eats the tiles Fei Fei wants. Nin Yung hints that she was thirsty. Upon hearing this, Fei Fei calls out : Chun Heung! Chun Heung! Immediately Nin Yung’s face turns black. Fei Fei remarks that she accidentally call Nin Yung’s ex-name as a maid. She also comments how smart Nin Yung was for betraying her mistress, Siu Dip and sneakly brought herself to Sheung Hang and became the 2nd wife.
I absolutely afore having Fei Fei here! She is much more witty than Nin Yung (once again the script writer did lovely snappy remarks!) and is always insulting her.
In this scene, it shows how male are treated better than females. Siu Dip’s daughter really wants to explore life outside of the Sheung mansion but never gets to. Chao Guk helps her buy a book but Sai Jo, Nin Yung’s son takes it and teases the two. Sheung Hang catches them and is furious the book was in the mansion. Sai Jo is punished by having to copy out 300 poems. Meanwhile, Chao Guk and Siu Dip’s daughter is going to be punished severely. Luckily Siu Dip saves them.
Later Chao Guk accidentally gets in trouble with Sai Jo and he plays a prank on her. Zi Sing (Jack Wu) happened to walk by but because Chao Guk previously told him to stay away from her, he didn’t bother to help. Chao Guk cried with fear but help wasn’t coming anytime soon ...
My Overal Thoughts: This episode was less dramatic, mainly because it was focused on Shirley's scenes which are pretty funny since she has the worst luck! As well with Nancy Wu added to the family, Rebecca is always going to be insulted!
The episode starts off with Sheung Wan’s (Ng Wai Kwok) confrontation with his wife who wants to know what has happened. These scenes are flashbacks of his and Sau Hang’s (Christine Ng) past. Originally Sheung Wan and Sau Hang were going to marry under Choi Siu Dip (Nancy Sit) and Sau Hang’s parent’s acceptance. During that time the Sheung’s Silver Chambers were in debt and Sheung Wan agreed to go on a business trip. When he returns though, he finds out that Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) married Sau Hang while he was away. He finds out that he was tricked by his brother and sister-in law. Sheung Hang forces Sheung Wan to marry the daughter of a rich man who could save the company. Sheung Wan refuses and plans to take Sau Hang away. It wasn’t until Siu Dip kneeled on the ground in front of him, telling him that she owes him and that she can’t see the Sheung family going down into ruins, did he angrily agree. He married the rich girl (present wife) and left Fu Shan.
Later, Sheung Wan finds out that Sheung Hang has another woman whom he plans to marry. He confronts his brother, telling him it is disrespectful to their dead father. Sheung Hang wiggles his way out of the village rules and says that he can marry again within 100 days of his father’s death.
And so the funeral day happens and everyone goes to pay their respects. Immediately after it, the scene shows the Mourn decorations being taken off and everyone’s mourn robes are taken off to reveal wedding clothes. And so Sheung Hang now has a 4th wife, Fei Fei (Nancy Wu) and what troubles will she stir?
My Overall Thoughts: Person I hate next is Paul! He's just so scheming and I cant believe he's having another wife!!! He's a lust-ful old man!!! First -wife is already so nice to you and everything. Second wife, fine she was an ex-maid and I can accept the fact that she brought herself on. Third wife... you married her because Sheung's Silver Chambers were in debt and you were doing a "favour" by marrying her...but come on!! A fourth one???!! As well, right after your father dies?? Oh my god, if you were to watch the process, it just seems so disrespectful to the father. Just watching how they took all the mourn decorations and clothing to reveal wedding stuff!! So rude!!!
The Troubles of Sau Hang & Meeting the Sheung's The series starts off with a celebration for the Sheung Family’s Father’s 70th birthday. Already there is conflict between the wives. In the above picture, Choi Siu Dip aka Eldest wife (Nancy Sit) asks Sau Hang aka 3rd wife (Christine Ng) to go to a party for her with the husband. Siu Dip hopes to use this chance for Sau Hang and the husband to improve their relationship. Sau Hang declines and Nin Yung aka 2nd wife (Rebecca Chan) who overheard the conversation nominates herself to take the Siu Dip’s place. Later though, Sau Hang sees her ex-lover on the streets and feels a merge of anger. She comes back in time to sabotage Nin Yung’s reign of glory. Sau Hang purposely chooses the brooch Nin Yung had wanted to wear to the party. Sau Hang officially declares that she accepts Siu Dip’s request causing Nin Yung to be filled with anger. Before Nin Yung could say anything more, Siu Dip as the family guardian states that Sau Hang is to replace her at the party. omg! I was soo happy when Sau Hang accepted the request. You could see that Siu Dip was glad she accepts. Nin Yung kept taking things that were given to Siu Dip.
Later on in the series, the Sheung Family’s second son, Sheung Wan returns (Ng Wai Kwok) angrily to the family after finding out that his brother, Sheung Hang (Paul Chun) has taken his wife (Winnie Yeung) and son from the hotel without telling him. He returns to being calm at the sight of his father who is happily to see all three Sheung generations. The scenes show the two son’s caring for the father but behind his back they have a shaky relationship as brothers. In this scene, the Sheung Wan and his family is settled in to the Sheung mansion. Nin Yung who had eves dropped on the relationship between Sau Hang and Sheung Wan takes this chance to cause trouble. She keeps implying that Sau Hang and the second son use to date. Sau Hang who is still bitter to the way the Sheung Wan had once treated her acts all excited and in love with the Sheung Hang. Siu Dip isn’t tricked though but chooses not to comment on Sau Hang’s weird behaviour.
Sau Hang decides to show her love for her husband by being caring and wrapping a scarf around him. In the car though, the husband confronts her and tells her that he knows what she is trying to do. He angrily throws the scarf back.
Back at home, the Sheung Family’s father finds out that Sai Jo, the Nin Yung’s song has dug out the soul treasurer to cage in his cricket. Angrily the Sheung father tells him to give it back and plans to punish him but Sai Jo refuses to and pleads him to lend it to him for his cricket. Out of anger, the Sheung father collapses.
The chapter ends with the Sheung Hang returning home immediately and asks for an explanation. The second son points to Nin Yung and Sai Jo saying that before Sheung father died, they were pointing at them. When confronted though, Nin Yung targets Sau Hang and Sheung Wan’s past relationship to protect her and her son. She says that the Sheung’s father died from hearing his two sons fighting for Sau Hang.
My Overall Thoughts: I so far really dislike Rebecca! She's so disrespectful to others because she's the only one who had bore a son for the Sheung family. I also hate how she lied and blamed it on Sheung Wan & Sau Hang!! She's causing so much trouble for Sau Hang!!
Ahhh.... after watching episode 1 of Silver Chambers of Sorrows, I already like it. I think I already know who I'll hate in this series>:P Anyways I watched it till the very end and I SAW THIS pretty subvideo for the series. I decided to make some screen caps to share with you guys. I love the subvideo's colour :D
