Singapore Drama Precious Babes
KATIE and HUIXIAN went to attend a wedding dinner, thinking that it was ZHIQING's big day. However, to their surprise, it turned out to be ZHIQING's father's wedding. Both of them were equally amazed to see ZHIQING's mother helping to entertain the guests. The most surprising moment of the day was when both of them saw the bride, who turned out to be younger than ZHIQING!
KATIE, HUIXIAN and ZHIQING studied Fashion Design together at Lasalle College of Arts. After graduating, the 3 ladies went pursued different careers. KATIE practiced what she studied and became a fashion designer. Unexpectedly, ZHIQING became an assistant director at a production house and after several years, became a director. The least ambitious, HUIXIAN, was working as reporter of a female fashion magazine, covering the latest fashion-wear and accessories. To HUIXIAN, her biggest achievement was to have married her doting husband, BO WEI MING, a director.
KATIE was married to advertising graphics designer, JOVAN, and had a 9-month old adorable baby girl. KATIE was flipping through i-Weekly one day when she saw an advertisement stating that a production house was going to produce a new TV serial, "Nanny Daddy 2", and was looking for a baby girl. KATIE, ignoring JOVAN's protests, brought her baby to the audition. During the audition, XUAN-XUAN could only stare blankly at the camera. KATIE was almost sure that they had failed the audition. Despite the directors' protests, the executive producer persisted in using XUAN-XUAN. Ecstatic, KATIE happily heaved her baby, but accidentally caused XUAN-XUAN to fall, shocking those around her. To enable the baby to act in the serial, KATIE asked JOVAN to take two months' unpaid leave. Unfortunately, JOVAN's company did not want to approve his leave and he was, in turn, forced to quit, becoming a full-time stay-at-home dad.
XUAN-XUAN became cranky and unpredictable during filming, creating chaos on the set. Everyone in the studio tried all ways to cheer XUAN-XUAN up, and the two directors were drained out in the process. The director requested for the male lead, RENXIAN, to move in temporarily with XUAN-XUAN to foster a bond between the two. Unfortunately for KATIE and JOVAN, RENXIAN didn't know how to care for himself and was incredibly dependent.
HUIXIAN, after listening to WEIMING's incessant complaints, curiously asked if he developed a phobia of babies. This couple had no children after many years of marriage. WEIMING yearned for his own child. HUIXIAN, on the other hand, had a morbid fear of pregnancy. As she did not dare tell her husband about it, she could only silently comply with his wishes. HUIXIAN's mother-in-law kept searching for ways to get her pregnant, which created much awkwardness. Ever since WEIMING's younger brother, WEIDE, married a widow with two sons in tow, HUIXIAN felt her status in the house affected and she became more stressed out.
Since JOVAN quit his job, he started to slip into depression. KATIE was excessively preoccupied with her work and XUAN-XUAN, completely neglecting JOVAN. This strained their relationship further. JOVAN started to seek solace out of his home and was entrapped in a molest case. Accused of molestation, JOVAN was arrested by the police for further investigation. A perfectionist, KATIE could not accept this incident. No matter how JOVAN explained, she was unconvinced. Henceforth, JOVAN became a changed man, as he locked himself at home. XUAN-XUAN was thus unable to attend filming sessions, which caused problems to the production team. Meanwhile, KATIE's company wanted to send her on a business trip overseas. KATIE wanted to take this opportunity to get away from it all, but was worried about XUAN-XUAN. ZHIQING volunteered to care for XUAN-XUAN while KATIE's abroad so that filming would not be disrupted. A few days into the "job", ZHIQING gave up and got RENXIAN to give her a hand. ZHIQING, who was bent on remaining single for life, felt RENXIAN's affections for her and panicked. She started to avoid RENXIAN and had no choice but to pass XUAN-XUAN to the compassionate WEIMING. Hence, XUAN-XUAN was being passed like a ball between the two directors. WEIMING experienced what it was like being a father and HUIXIAN began to like children. Not long later, HUIXIAN found herself pregnant.
JOVAN's name was cleared, and he and KATIE were back together. KATIE became pregnant again. To balance between family and work, KATIE decided to let invite her in-laws to stay with them (though she was originally averse to the idea of living with them), as she finally understood how valuable it was to have the elderly around in the house. At this point, ZHIQING also had good news to share.
