Poh Huat (Richard Low), the patriarch of the Loh family, works as a lawyer's clerk. He is married to Siew Luan (Alice Lim), a housewife who obsessively brews liang teh (herbal tea) for the family. Poh Huat has a habit of buying lottery tickets in hope of winning and enjoying a better life. He also keeps newspaper cuttings of car models and condominiums and stores them in a box in his room.
The family has one son, Seng (Dick Su), and one daughter, Mei (Yeo Yann Yann). Despite Mei's superior academic performance, the family has consistently shown favouritism for Seng. Even though he was ostensibly the academically poorer sibling, dropping out of school in Secondary 3, his parents still chose to fund his overseas polytechnic education instead of his sister's further education. Seng is due to return after two years at Idaho Polytechnical University. To fund his overseas studies, apart from his parents, he had to borrow money from his fiancée, Irene (Serene Chen). Irene, who lives with Seng's parents while Seng is overseas, yearns to marry Seng and fulfill her dream of the perfect family.
Mei works as a secretary who maintains a friendly working relationship with her boss. Her boss values Mei's help as a secretary. She is due for delivery in two months' time, and for maternity leave in a month's time. Her husband, CK (Lim Yu-Beng), quit the army a month before and began to sell insurance instead, without much success. He is therefore belittled by Mei. Even though they cannot afford it, they go to a condominium showroom to take a look, revealing their aspirations for a more luxurious lifestyle.
