Quotes (English Translations)
Yong: Hey, did you see the picture displayed outside? I'm sure she's got a big chance. Look, she's pretty, right? Why don't we search for her?
Ronnie: Actually, this girl is really pretty. We don't have to search for her. Yong, meet Carmina.
Yong: (To Carmina) This is you? But you're more prettier in personal.
Yong: I love you, Carmina.
Yong: Can you be my 'plus one'?
Carmina: Plus one?
Yong: Plus one. Pretty, loving, understanding, sweet. The one.
Yong: (To Carmina) I also won't give up on you.
Yong: (To Carmina) Are you just gonna turn your back on me? After all that we've been through?
Yong: (To Carmina) You didn't even give me a chance to explain. I thought we were strong?
Yong: (To Carmina) Signs? You based our relationship on signs? Carmina, I love you! And I know that you're the one for me. And that isn't because of some signs! Everything. I did everything to prove that to you. But whatever I do, if you're going to believe in those useless signs, I'm just gonna lose anyway. If you love someone, you'll trust them. You won't just give up on them. Even though it's difficult. It's easy for you to believe in signs, rather than believe in me. Maybe that just means that you don't really love me at all.
