Description: Xiao Wu's relationship with the karaoke-bar hostess Mei-Mei gets off to a rocky start, but she is soon charmed by him. He soon thinks of her as his 'steady' and buys a pager so that she can contact him. Xiao Wu buys an expensive ring for Mei-Mei but learns that she has left the karaoke bar with some clients from Taiyuan and moved out of her home. He gives the ring instead to his mother during a visit to his family in the countryside - and is angry when he realises she has sold it. Back in Fenyang, he is caught trying to steal a wallet because his pager goes off. Arrested, he becomes an object of curiosity for passers-by.
