Episode Summary

Collar of Time / The Birds, the Bees and the Silkworms

Collar of Time

When Sagwa receives a collar that's an ancient family heirloom, she's disgusted with it. Her mother rattles on about how important it is and how she got it from her mother when she was young, etc., but this doesn't really impress Sagwa. The collar is stinky and she gets the idea that she has to wear it all the time. She goes out with it on and gets made fun of. So she buries the collar, but after another talk with her Mom, realizes how important and special it is. She goes back to retrieve it, but it's gone! Turns out that the sleeve dogs have taken it. Sagwa then chases after them, and thanks to Fu-Fu, gets the collar back. She then apologizes to her mom, who then tells her that she needn't wear it all the time.

The Birds, The Bees, and The Silkworms

After having her concentration while putting on her make-up shattered by the noise of swiftlets, a run in with silkworms on her favourite mulberry bush, and after Ba-Do getting stung by a bee, Tai-Tai orders the Foolish Magistrate to ban Silkworms, Swiftlets and bees from the province. This starts having adverse effects on their lives as the village faces a silk, birds nests and honey shortage. Tai-Tai's new robes can't be completed because of lack of silk, and dessert during dinner was horrible without honey and birds nest. So, Tai-Tai thinks it over, and orders the Foolish Magistrate to take back the rules. In the meantime, Dongwa makes a new friend, but starts avoiding him when he finds out that his new friend will be moving away soon. But soon, he learns that they should still be friends, regardless of moving or not.
