First Time
After just a month of being together, Vince and Aliyah decide to take their relationship into a much intimate level. Being excited and nervous at the same time, they quickly go inside a convenience store to buy a condom. This is their first time ever and they do not seem to know what to say in front of the cashier. Vince awkwardly points over to the box of condoms, while Aliyah looks down shyly, trying to avoid eye contact with anyone. The cashier casually grabs the box and punches the item in the cash register. Aliyah quickly grabs the box and puts it inside her bag, trying to prevent anyone from seeing it.The two of them rush to Vince’s condominium to do what they have been wanting to do. Arriving at Vince's condo, they go straight to the bed. They kiss each other intensely until they start to take off each other’s clothes. Aliyah then grabs the condom from her bag and gives it to Vince. They stop kissing and Vince looks at Aliyah with confusion. Having thought that Aliyah knows what to do, he tries to give the condom back to her. Aliyah shakes her head and gives her the same look of confusion. Realizing that they both have no idea on what to do and how to use the condom, Vince decides to look it up online. They search it up on google and click the first link of instructions that they see. They quickly skim through the instructions and try to follow what they read. Vince tries to put the condom on but fails to do so. He tries again and it still doesn’t stay put. He hands it over to Aliyah to let her try to do it. The two keep trying but they don't succeed. Aliyah tries to stretch the condom, thinking that it's just not stretched enough. While doing this, she accidentally lets go of one end and the condom flicks to Vince's face. Vince and Aliyah look at each other and they burst out laughing. Vince motions to the door, asking Aliyah if she'd like to eat instead. Aliyah nods her head, the two quickly put on their clothes and head out of the room. As the credits roll, a short clip of the couple eating and laughing together at a fast food chain is shown.

Luck Down Ep 5: Crazy Good Hawkers
Jasmine's luck seems to run out with Brandon as everything in her life seemingly falls into place. Determined, the hawkers crack their heads to do one crazy video.A Viddsee Original ProductionDirector Statement: As I read the script, I realised behind the “romance”, drama, and comedy bits was a woman struggling to find herself in the midst of her life and in a pandemic. I saw myself in her, even though I’m in my 20s, my most recent thoughts were “What will happen to me in the next few years before I hit 30? Do I need to have certain achievements? I need to be at a "further" or "higher" place, right? Would I be doing, genuinely, ok? Then can you imagine if you were in her shoes in her 40s, with so many years behind her and just going back to the drawing block and starting anew in an industry she has no idea of? And also coming to realise she needed to comprehend herself anew too, ironically, through her love scammer.With the pandemic hitting everyone upside down, the hawkers, mostly consisting of the older generation, struggle to see the end of the tunnel and how to make ends meet. And instead of not portraying the depressing side of things, having this play out in comedic, light-hearted banter will help soothe the heaviness everyone has been feeling and at the same time, bring to light the people we forgot to honour.Creator/Writer Statement: LUCK DOWN is a romantic comedy set in contemporary Singapore. It is about a woman, on the wrong side of 40, who fulfils her lifelong dream of opening a hawker stall, falls in love for the first time, finds out her new boyfriend is a love scammer. Then, Covid-19 forces them to be locked down together.In LUCK DOWN, we laugh and cry with lonely hawker Jasmine as she navigates the lockdown, coupledom, and her new stall with Brandon. All while trying not to get into trouble with lockdown ambassadors, vigilantes and the authorities. Not to mention customers, friends, family, and nosy neighbours.I had come up with the concept during the first circuit breaker, exploring how the pandemic could be affecting romantic relationships. Does absence make the heart grow fonder or rather, does familiarity breed contempt? What happens if you are stuck with someone you don’t trust?This is no ordinary love-hate-love story, but then again, we are still living through extraordinary times.
