Stephy originally was a very lucky girl. She opened a sweets shop after graduating college with her longtime boyfriend Jun (it didn't say the name of who is acting him). Stephy thought that after everything settled down, she would then marry Jun. But of course the good times never last long. One day Stephy met her old classmate Alice Zeng (Taiwanese actress, from Jay Chou's Secret). Alice liked Jun's hard working and read morenice personality, and completely not caring about Stehpy's feelings; decided to take Jun for her own. Stephy not only lost the long time love of her life, but she also lost the sweet shop that she has worked so hard on.
Leila is Stephy's good friend. She has a long time boyfriend Terry. The pretty and attractive Leila would often time have some short relationships with other men while concealing all this from the introvert and slow Terry. It's not that Leila doesn't love Terry. She always thinks that Terry will never leave her. As for Leila, she doesn't want to be someone who holds onto one single relationship.
After breaking up with Jun, Stephy found a job as a make-up artist in the mall. Her boss Kuen (again, no actress name) suddenly announced her engagement. She invited everyone to out to celebrate. At the party, Stephy realized that her boss's really young fiancé is very familiar. She recognized him as her old neighbor Alex Fong, but Alex keeps pretending that he doesn't know Stephy.
A month later, Kuen's wedding was suddenly canceled. Stephy found out from coworkers that Kuen's life savings were all stolen from the fiancé Alex, who also disappeared. Stephy unexpectedly met Alex on the streets. Alex already has a new target. He finds Stephy following him. Alex though Stephy was going to sue him, but never expected Stephy to have a request from him. She would like to use good money and hire him to cheat with Alice. Stephy promised that Alice will have to taste what it's like to loose all your money and boyfriend.

As an experienced liar, Alex successfully "wooed" Alice. Watching Alice like someone else, Jun decided to make up with Stephy and asked for a new relationship. But the time has passed for Stephy. She has no more feelings for Jun because deep in her heart, she unknowingly fell in love with Alex.
As for always having successful relationships, Leila finally felt tired and decided to set up a stable relationship with Terry. But Terry tells Leila that he wants to break up. In the past 6th months, concealing the fact from Leila had another relationship with his coworker's girlfriend Miki. "Stepping on two boats", Terry finally decided to let go of Leila and chose Miki for a new relationship. Always thinking that she was in control of everything, Leila never thought that she would be played. Who would have thought that this was all quietly building up?
The 7 main characters in the story, all were excited in the game of love. But in the game of love, there are no rules. Just like this world, there is no strange love, just strange people.

    When I was at the middle I was waiting for Bobo(the main girl if I not write the name wrong)be with Keung even when he trick her I was waiting to him get her back.But the ending make that movie the worst movie....The ending looks like they wanna put a bit of comedy and they put that just on the end.Of course that for ppl that were waiting for a cute ending(like me) that wasn't funny at all.
    Actually they are showing a real thing normally ppl don't choose love because is a difficult way and Bobo prefered the confort instead of the love.Like Keung choose be in is "place" instead of go to Bobo.
    It was my first time watching an Hong Kong movie...
