Ju Xiang is born into a big Peranakan family where her mum is a mistress. During the World War, Ju Xiang is tortured and both she and her husband die, leaving behind their 8-year-old daughter Yue Niang. After the war, Yue Niang's maternal relatives who ran away to England to seek refuge during wartime return home. Yue Niang then leads the life of her mother – always discriminated, beaten up and tortured. Yue Niang is then sold to a butcher, Liu Yi Dao. However, Yue Niang's strong personality impresses Liu Yi Dao and they become sworn siblings instead. Yue Niang decides to choose her own path in life. She begins learning how to run a business and she manages to overcome the odds and save her declining family business. Sadly, her love life has yet to begin a new chapter with no news about her lover, Chen Xi.

The whole story was really touching.. Yue Niang was really tough... but too bad she did not end up

with the one she loved most like her mother.. but at least the 2 of them found happiness in the end

Jeanette Aw acting as Huang Ju Xiang / Yue Niang was really nice....... Good job to her

This series was so good. It was the first time the really finished the SG series. I have been busy watching other countries series but I not realized that this series was good until it was shown up on the TVB cable TV.

First singapore drama I actually watched. Would be even greater if the two ended up together. But in the drama, it also includes a lot of the culture, which is great as well. Was really wanting all the food.

I'm watching this drama and it's been good so far. Although sometimes I feel that the storyline is not completely logic :)
