one cruel fact that i found out a little too late, which is after the film had ended .. is that the film doesn't focus on the "happy ending" thingy. despite the flow of the story and how we are being mislead, it didn't end the way we hoped or thought it would. it was a good story nonetheless. a story of 2 fishmongers - Miriam n Eason. how she wanted to get married before age 30. n how she missed all the chances he gave her. she ended up with a successful career. n him with a happy family (not with her). unexpectedly, i tears fell when her "dad" died. it was surprisingly heart-breaking. wasn't expecting to cry for a comedy. it does somehow proves its success in capturing the viewers' heart. *claps* the film used the concept of her setting her mindset to "choosing the right person to marry". in return she let all the chances slipped by. though it was covered up with a successful career, but her loneliness was visible.
