Kung Fu meets disco in Singapore. Hock is a grocery clerk longing for a motorbike. He lives with his parents and sister; they idolize his younger brother, Beng, a medical student calling himself Leslie. Hock loves Bruce Lee; he works out and imitates his moves. When Hock sees a cheesy local version of "Saturday Night Fever," he gets the disco bug, taking his pal Mei to nightly lessons in hopes of winning a contest and buying the bike. He's blind to Mei's falling in love with him, and, at the last minute asks another woman to be his partner in the contest. Meanwhile, Beng reveals a personal secret to his family and a crisis ensues. Hock, Beng, Mei and her rival: it's Night Fever. Written by
Immediately after the scene where Hock runs in full '70s dance getup to meet with Mei and when he finally arrives, there is a truck in the background with a large blue covering on it. The purpose of this vehicle was not only as a set dressing, but it was used to block the camera's view of the catering area so that the crew would not have to move all of the tables and food to another location.

"That's the Way I Like it" or "Forever Fever" is a movie that makes me smile. It plays a lot like Saturday Night Fever, the music, the disco dance competition, and the hero changes dance partners along the way. But it isn't a parody of the movie just based in Singapore, instead I think it's just paying homage to the great film. This is really a feel good movie that makes you laugh, want to dance, and smile throughout ... except for this really moving and well acted scene with Hock's brother Leslie and his father. By the end you will be glad you saw a movie that made you smile... and find yourself saying, "Thats the way I like it." This movie is a simple story, that ask you to , 'Don't think ... feeeeeel' "Enter the Dragon. 1974"
