A retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Set during the Chinese New Year, Goldy Luck’s mothers sends her to visit the neighbouring pandas with turnip cakes. Goldy Luck complains the son, Little Chan, never shares, but her mother tells her to “wash away old arguments and be nice, or you’ll have bad luck.” Chaos ensues as soon as she enters her neighbours empty home. She drops the cakes, eats the congee cooling on the table, breaks a chair and falls asleep on a futon. When the Chan’s return they find the sleeping Goldy Luck. Embarrassed she runs home, but soon returns to the Chan’s home to apologise and clean up her mess.
