Yee Jai though, takes the lead and accepts. The others follow suit and this makes Jeung Tin Leung really happy. They drink to it.

Even though they’re con-artists, they don’t kill people. There’s no thrill in risking their lives like this. Sun Kai Jai is a little irked at how their bosses keep changing. They initially came to Macau to help Szeto, which then turned into helping Yee Jai, then to Yat Gor, now Yat Gor’s father.

Commentary;

It’s a wonder Yat Gor turned out as decent as he did what with the two crazy parents he has. Probably gotta thank Szeto. He did a fine job raising Yat Gor lol.
