Puppy Love - Does it melt too fast?

A few weeks back, I've watched a highly anticipated movie with chewyinli.


Ice Kacang Puppy Love

Yes, this movie is highly antipicated (by me) because of the following reasons:
1. Its a Malaysian-made movie!!
2. I love Ah-Niu, 阿牛
3. It does bring back kampung-styled memories
4. Its the type of movie I like

Okay enough said, something about the movie now.
Synopsis: A woman brings her daughter Da Jia Yu run away from her husband. They live in a small-old town and stay at friend’s house earn for a living. The son of the kopitiam tauke, Botak falls into this small little girl. In Botak’s life, Da Jia Yu plays an important role. She accompany Botak till they growth up. Botak secretly admires Da Jia Yu. Along the journey, he explores the meaning of true love, devotion and forgiveness.


Its a truly touching story in my opinion.
I especially like the quote by Ah Niu at the end of the movie.
“初恋就好像眼前这一碗红豆冰,还来不及感受它个中滋味,就已经融化在舌尖,融化在心底。能回味的,是心裡略帶青澀的甜”

Alright some of you may not understand what it said, so I'll translate it for you.
"First love is just like a bowl of Ice Kacang, it melts before you can taste it properly. What is in our memories are its mild sweetness."

Mind you, the ice kacang that is mentioned isn't like the ones you see now.
Its not stacked up as high as a building.
It doesn't have things like nata de coco, jelly, pearls etc.
It doesn't have ice cream topped on the ice.
Its just traditional, simple ice kacang.

Ah Niu's quote actually made me think alot.
I totally agree with what he said.
How many of us know what are we doing in our first romance?
Many of us were too young to actually know what is it all about.
Its over before we can actually taste it.
Well, just like mine.

Hey, when I said "just like mine" it doesn't mean that mine didn't last very long okay.
Mine lasted a little pass a year but honestly speaking, I don't know whats going on back then.
All we ever know is that we're together..and..so what?
I don't know the rest.
When I'm old enough to actually experience what romance is, I thought back about my first time.
I can't exactly put the feeling into words except "naive yet sweet"
Its exactly how it feels when we think about our younger days, when we don't have much to think about.

Now, after stepping into the society to work, things change again.
Once again I feel that I've grown up and possibly matured.
I got a comment saying "It turns you more no nonsense ish."
Yes, sometimes silly jokes do come out, but most of the time I'm all about personal growth and productivity.
I've been doing things which a typical 24 year old might not do.
Read books, think about financial freedom AND work towards it etc.
I'm lucky to have someone who can teach and guide me.
But I know, my parents are worried too as my future is still very vague.
Can't blame them though, I'm not doing things that are conventional.
Can't be too conventional in this new age economy, can we?
I don't wish to worry them but I do hope that they'll give me some time to do things my way.
I know it'll work out, just like the many challenges I faced before, right?

*Ehh, off topic ddi laa!!!*

Oops!!! Too much about me I guess.
But hey, it proves a point doesn't it?
We get less naive as we grow up.
More responsibilities comes as we gain more experiences and power.
We can't be thinking only about ourselves, we have to care for others too.
This isn't something we do during puppy love.
Somehow its just makes me smile thinking how easy is it for us to be together and break up when we were young.

How was your puppy love like?

Its sad if you don't have one!!! *Hahaha purely joking*
