Mike and Aom are still tightly wrapped in the blanket… They intensely stare at each other for a few seconds, they close their eyes and their heads start moving closer (Please tell me that it’s real and I didn’t make this up!). Mike even gets his lips ready for a kiss but THEN Aom ruins it all by viciously attacking him – head punch. She yells at him: Do not touch me! And here we go again for more bickering.
Back in Thailand, Benz and the rest of the staff of Mike’s agency go over the polls about Mike’s wedding: 32 % say it’s a good match, 45 % say it’s a little too fast and Aom might be pregnant, and the rest doesn’t care – none of their business (I like the first and third groups best). Mike’s manager wonders how Aom and Mike met. The only thing that is sure is that they met 3 months ago when Mike went to Korea. If Aom is not pregnant, there is something fishy (Please do not start dramas Mrs. Manager). Benz is given the task to spy/investigate the couple.
Aom and Mike are sitting in a park enjoying the nice weather. Aom’s attention is drawn by this family of three. The dad is teaching the daughter how to bike. Mike sees her and wants them to bike too. Aom asks if this is his way to reconcile; Mike gets annoyed and tells her that she doesn’t have to. Aom wants to but the truth is that she doesn’t know how to. Mike teases her: this is certainly an indicator of her stupidity!
Frustrated Aom leaves and takes a walk. She is soon followed by Mike with a bike. He will teach her and make her less stupid. Aom is suscipicious but Mike is able to convince her.Meanwhile Benz is instructed to call Mike and check on his honeymoon. Mike tries to teach Aom properly but she is so tense that it ends up being him holding the bike and her not pedaling at all. Benz calls at the wrong time and a cute/pervy misunderstanding ensues. Mike forgets about the phone call and this is what the members of his agency hear:
Mike: Don’t be so tense
Aom: It’s my first time
Mike: Everyone has a first time
Aom: Aie! Don’t push! It hurts.
Mike: It always hurt the first time. Spread your legs wider.
Aom: Is it wider?
Mike: Don’t be tense. Are you ready?
Aom: I am so excited! It’s my first time so don’t go too fast!
They are shocked that they hang up (I would be traumatized too). What was Mike teaching Aom? They all have an idea and the manager is so mentally exhausted that she decides that they should all go home (HAHAHAHHAA. She needs time to recover 😀).
Mike makes Aom fall off the bike causing her to bruise her knee. He runs to get water and starts cleaning it even using his scarf. He wraps the scarf around her knee and intensely stares at Aom (Guilt, care???).
Mike takes Aom for a bike ride. He makes her seat on the back of the bike and they take a tour of the park.
and TOO cute!!!
They sit on a bench – probably to take a break after fooling around – and keep glancing at each other, especially Mike (Mike, I think you are about to lose the bet and fall in love first…)
On the plane back to Thailand, our couple falls asleep and lean their head against each other’s. Even the stewardess thinks they are cute.
When they arrive at their house, Aom has to do laundry and cook for Princess Mike. She makes sausages and eggs but Mike complains that it’s not food. Aom explains that they just got back from Korea and don’t have anything fresh.Mike throws the plate out of the window (Such a waste) and Aom tells him that although she is a housewife, she is not going to clean this mess because it’s his. The salary he pays doesn’t include silly things. He has to clean it himself. While doing the laundry, Mike interrupts her to give her a sticky note with all the food instructions: veggies must be organic, food must be mostly Thai (i.e. white gourd curry), some of the veggies must be carved, etc. Carved veggies? Aom asks him who does that??? This is not Ayyutthaya Kingdom (1300s to 1700s). Their argument is interrupted by the appearance of Junior, the neighbor’s dog.
Aom finally learns how to prep the perfect breakfast for Mike but Princess Mike decides not to eat it (Ughhhhhh). Angrily Aom starts drinking the juices (Oh well she shouldn’t waste her hard labor: I approve!).
Min keeps calling Benz to find out if Mike is back. Benz doesn’t pick up and Mike also ignores Benz when she complains about it. Min also sees the cute picture of Mike and Aom sleeping in the airplane in a gossip magazine. She sighs and gets lost in her thought (What’s new?) When Mike finally asks Benz what Min said, Benz tells Mike that Min wants him to be the model for her new collection. She only wants him (For her collection… but also to herself…). Mike tells Benz to let Min know that he is not available. Benz gets all excited and lets him know that she already told Min (Benz is such a troublemaker ❤). She also told Min that they went on a honeymoon; they were also so sweet to each other in Korea to the point of doing *@#$%*&%$!*… She starts teasing Mike but it seems like he doesn’t even know what she is referring to.
Aom stops to buy food from a small shop in the market. She seems to be a regular; she asks the Auntie what is white gourd curry – the dish Mike was talking about earlier. She buys some and even asks for extra chicken feet. While buying food, Aom gets a call and happily agrees to meet whoever that person is in two days.
Back at the house, Mike keeps ignoring Min’s calls. He doesn’t have the time to think for too long about the missed phone calls because Aom serves lunch. Mike is excited because she has his favorite dish and starts stuffing his face. He doesn’t even care that it’s food bought from a shop: he is OK as long as it’s delicious. Mike tells Aom that he fell in love with chicken feet when he was younger; he had wrongly opened the wrong pot in the kitchen – the housekeeper’s. It was full of chicken feet and offal!
Aom is focused in her writing and Mike is practicing his dance moves/watching TV. He interrupts Aom to ask for snacks. Annoyed, she has no choice but to obey. Mike sees that she is annoyed and enjoys it even more (He is definitely bothering her on purpose).
The next day, Aom calls the Auntie to ask for more chicken feet; she even wants to have it delivered (Shameleslly calling in front of Mike. I guess there is no point to hide it anymore since he has already accepted the fact that only the taste counts).
Aom meets the publisher again. This script is definitely not bad at all but she suggests that Aom works on something else – something that could sell a lot better: Aom and Mike’s love story. The publisher even offers an advance. Aom categorically refuses and asks for her manuscript back.She goes to a park and vents out her frustration.
Aom finally thinks about calling Guy. She wants to show him her work. He agrees and she hurries to his office. Guy asks his secretary to cancel one of his meetings. His secretary understands that it must be something really important for him to postpone work. He agrees.
Guy couldn’t he happier to see Aom (He can’t help but smile broadly). Aom is a little nervous – this might be one of the last chances to have her work adapted or published. Guy asks about Mike to which Aom answers that he is fine: eating and still concerned about healthy food. Guy awkwardly laughs. Aom apologizes for showing up like this especially since he looks so busy. He reassures her; it’s not a big deal. He actually planned on visiting them too (Are you sure?) but …. (OMG but what??? This is killing me; I want to know the end of the sentence!!! Is it because it would make him sad to have lost Aom?!). Guy switches the topic and starts discussing Aom’s work. She wants her short novel to be adapted. Guy promises to contact her as soon as he finishes reading it. Aom has to quickly leave since it’s already noon (Go to cook for Mike probably) and tells him that they should hang out soon. She could show him around.
At home, Aom finds out that Mike bought her a bike. She tries the bike’s bell and then Mike and her proceed to trying it in a park. Teaching Aom is still a difficult task. She even rides on Mike’s foot! She quickly apologizes but he tells her that it’s alright (So patient). When Mike finally lets go of the bike, Aom is able to ride for a few seconds but then ends up falling off. Mike runs to her and helps her up. They both laugh about it shortly after.
Aom and Mike are sitting on the stairs of their house chatting when Min shows up. Mike goes down to meet her. Min complains about the fact that she has been trying to reach him without success. She has a new collection that she really wants him to present. Mike tells her that she will not have him anymore. Min wonders why is he acting like he is dead? He simply got married. How can he act like they don’t know each other anymore? Mike answers that it’s not that bad but some things will never be the same. Can she also find someone else for her new collection (I am sure Mike is not the only one that can model in Thailand… So yessss she needs to find someone else!). She leaves without being able to change Mike’s mind.
Aom wonders what it is going on. Mike goes and sit by the water and is not back until Aom falls asleep.
We are able to see Mike’s nice side a lot more in this episode. He proposes to teach Aom how to ride a bike and make up for that childhood memory she never had. Although he teases, he takes it very seriously. I mean he even bought her a bike! When she rides on his foot, he doesn’t complain and keeps encouraging her.
There was also more physical contact between our couple. Touching each other’s hair, resting their head next to each other’s on the plane, etc. They are acting like a real couple without even realizing it. Mike also almost kissed Aom when they were wrapped in the blanket. I hope I didn’t make that up! Maybe I want them to kiss so badly that I am seeing things LOL.
Another indicator that Aom is occupying a bigger place in Mike’s life is the fact that he easily forgets about Min when he is with her. If he wasn’t into Aom, he wouldn’t be able to get his mind off Min. The only times he thought about Min is when she reaches out to him – calling him, showing up to his place, etc. Even then she can be quickly forgotten. There is this one scene when Min calls him. He doesn’t pick up and his mind is taken off it really fast because Aom calls him to have lunch. Last indicator of his feelings for Aom is her ability to manipulate him without him even noticing him. She subtly convinces him to eat food that she didn’t cook herself and therefore turns the situation to her advantage. A minimal amount of cooking means more time to do other tasks and writing.Mike also can’t leave Aom alone. He loves when she pays attention to him that’s why he always finds a way to bother her!
Our couple also learned a lot about each other. From the small anecdotes (i.e. Mike’s childhood, his sense of humor, etc.) to Aom’s desire to learn how to bike partly because of her father.
Min also can’t seem to be able to leave Mike alone. She is still not sure what’s up with her feelings but she is certain that she doesn’t like the current situation with Mike. And Guy! OMG! The way he looks at Aom! It’s like he is about to embrace her every five minutes. His eyes get all sparkly when he talks to her. It is so unusual because with Mike and Min he is so in control and composed. He is (hardly) trying to keep the appropriate distance between Aom and him. Guy obviously thinks about Mike and doesn’t want to like his friend’s wife but can’t help it. I wonder how long he will be able to keep it in.
Feel free to comment! I would love to hear your impressions on the episode ~
