Slow Boat Home TVB Official Poster


CHEUNG PO-SANG (Raymond Wong), who was born and raised in Cheung Chau, is a man with grandiose aims but puny talents, putting the seafood restaurant run by his father CHEUNG SING-MUI (Yueh Hua) out of business.
As PO-SANG feels down-hearted, his close associate CHENG PO-PO (Aimee Chan), a female TV producer, remains steadfast with loyalty to him, fighting with him side-by-side all along.  Even when PO-SANG suffers from a fracture due to a boating accident and becomes physically disabled, PO-PO is willing to push the wheelchair for him.  On the other hand, KWOK HEI-MAN (Selena Li) gives up her own career all of a sudden and returns to Cheung Chau, helping her mother IP WING-SHAN (Susan Tse) run the holiday home rental business.  It turns out that HEI-MAN has secretly joined hands with some outsiders, planning to develop a hotel conglomerate.  HEI-MAN also attempts to have an affair with PO-SANG, trying to make PO-PO go away.  What HEI-MAN has done is noticed by her first love CHING LAI-WING (Ruco Chan), who cannot put up with it, as such, he and PO-PO become fellow sufferers, commiserating with each other.  As PO-PO is about to give up verifying her parentage and return to the USA, unexpectedly, a sudden reversal of the holiday home acquisition process occurs……

  • ac says:

    this drama is good but a bit silly.
    Does anyone know the song sung by karen mok and which album? The scene in god of cookery the scene where stephen chow meets christy chung.I know the song title its probally in the ending credits but i cant read chinese. I know the original song was sung by a japanese artist and the cantonese song was sung by Samantha Lam.
    This drama parody that scene cant remember which episode though.

    Hi just wondering was my previous comment deleted?

  • pu says:

    i cant stand the way selena li act and her character too. the drama is good, raymond, aimee chan and ruco’s atcs are great. i find the drama is very interesting. the only thing i disappointed about this drama is the KWOK HEI-MAN character, she’s so mean and bitchy! and the way selena acts is terrible too. She appears so boring with her awful actions, to be honest, she doesnt know how to act definitely! Im sick of her appearance to be sooo innocence but so bitchy inside! not many ppl can see this for sure!
    I dont know how and why tvb gave Selena the main character in this drama but its a mistake for sure!

    • Lara says:

      Well Selena is still ok. I cant stand Aimee, she cant act. She should just be a housewife instead of an actress. I feel like vomiting every time she spoke in cantonese
