When an unassuming man, Fu Zi Jie (Jasper Liu), moves in next door, they immediately begin to bicker over trivial matters. But when Zi Jie shows up as a new employee at her restaurant, Kai Qi, as well as other staff members, mistake him for a lowly intern, not knowing that Zi Jie is a classically trained chef who just returned from France and that Figaro Cuisine is actually his father’s restaurant. Can Zi Jie help save Kai Qi from the wrath of the mysterious “Chef Louis”? [Credit: viki]

Keane: Did you happen to land on this post after you finish reading Kappy’s recaps for episode 01?

Wow, Taiwan has been on a roll seducing me with some of my favorite actors/actresses in new shows veering away from Idol dramas. I was looking forward to watch Cheryl Yang in a daily drama, oh boy, it’s called 媽咪的男朋友 (Tie the Knot) and so happens Kingston Wang with his manly voice is one of Cheryl’s sweetheart contenders. Ack, I wish I had more time to moi-même to catch up with dramaland. 🙁 Oh well, I will at least get to watch this series. ;p

      Bored already, nancy?

      Hmmm, I watched up to ep.03 and still can’t find the time for it. I might just upload MQs since most people can just google to find HQs anyways, in that case.

    I was surprised how much I liked this series thanks to Jasper Liu’s beaming ray of light personified!

    I had a short discussion about this with abugemilang on twitter. I thought the first 10 episodes were well thought out building up the story line, then it started getting cheesy onward (that totally tickled my funny bone how much of it was displayed), however like all dramas comes the cliches… that all fillers KRAP out somewhere from episode 15+. Le sigh. Thank goodness the show recovered itself slowly but surely the last leg of the series. So I was satisfied with the finale, good thing too, because I’d just bought a new coffee table and I intend to keep it for a while before I start flipping tables again. Kiikii~ Oh well, onto the next show!

    How amazing was OTP’s mixology in pheromones? Ehm, Jasper had good chemistry with Puff Guo, however, fireworks weren’t grandly exploding like the times Puff co-starred with Aaron Yan in Just You. I gravely believe there weren’t enough dynamics in this show as like Just You for it to be as successful, I mean, there were fewer short side stories added for the sidekick characters than in Just You, thus focusing too much on OTP for my patience to bear and that leads to boredom happening in Pleasantly Surprised (aka Love Myself or You) for a quarter of the entire show. That’s just me, because I know some fans prefer OTP more than side characters hogging screen time. I prefer a balanced casting, everyone given some importance in the story, like in Just You, Fated To Love You, or Office Girls. Yet, in all its faults, I’m just glad I admire Jasper Liu (much) and Puff Guo (enough) to keep more positive remarks about one of their projects together.

    Anyone else here was brave enough to finish this series?

    Still contemplating whether to take on encoding this show in 480p or 540p… any thoughts?

    Okay, gonna start this one on the weekend in 540p hardsubbed in RAW. Lemme see if I can get one or two praises about my encoding. Here I go…………..

    Search in subscene for softsubs. All you have to do is rename/match each file to sync.

    Why no one tell me ep.15 link doesn’t work properly? Aiyah~ Okay, good link is up now. Enjoy!!
