Synopsis

This description was taken from official source. Do not modify it.

MK wakes up to a perfect life... too perfect. He realises he's living in an illusion brought on by being trapped in the nefarious Calabash.

Plot

After experiencing an earthquake and accidentally sleeping in, MK rushes to Pigsy's Noodles to tell Pigsy not to fire him. Once he did, Pigsy questions him on why would he fire him, as he and Tang implied that sounded like Pigsy would never do. Moments later, when MK asked what happened to his staff, Tang told him that he used the staff to imprisoned the Demon Bull Family on top of the mountain. However, when Tang realized that MK doesn't recalled the imprisonment, Pigsy gives MK the day off. Overjoyed, MK goes around the city to have fun until he notices that the civilians were getting clingy around him and that something was going on.

Once MK runs off to tell Mei about the situation, he ends up on a romantic river cruise with her, with Sandy as their waiter. When MK tells Mei about what was happening all day, he notices that Mei is acting stranger than usual as well. Soon, Mei then admits to MK that she loves him since the day they first met, causing MK to feel nauseous. Unbeknownst to MK, the Gold and Silver Demons fight for an ancient relic known as the calabash, which was used by them to trap MK in an alternate universe. After Jin made a mistake for making MK and Mei's alternative counterpart fall in love, he and Yin go through their plan until he decided to fix his mistake by saying that Mei's alternative counterpart actually loves being MK's best friend instead. In the alternate universe, MK gets away from Mei by saying that he'll see her later.

Sometime later, MK meets up with the Monkey King and tells him what was going on. Despite this, Monkey King tells MK that the events that are happening to him are normal and that he should accept it until he notices that MK left.
