Zarzou Brightening & Hydrating Serum (BHS) Review

These days people are constantly looking for a serum that can help to reduce acne scars. Those reddish or brownish acne marks would be slack if one day we decide to go out barefaced. So it's important to start getting rid of your acne scars from now because it'll surely take some time. 

Recently, there's a local serum that goes spread like wildfire on Twitter claiming that it helps in brightening your skin and let go of acne scars. Many users had thanked this brand for creating that formula and I was tempted to give it a try after viewing their feedbacks. 

It's called Zarzou Brightening & Hydrating Facial Serum

Zarzou BHS Review

What It Claims?


Zarzou Brightening & Hydrating (BHS) Serum is a lightweight serum that helps brighten and firm the skin as it delivers all-day hydration. A gentler skin brightening ingredient (arbutin) is added to make it suitable for sensitive skin. [PH value: 5.5]


3 Main Powerful Ingredients of Zarzou BHS


There are three (3) main powerful ingredients in Zarzou Brightening & Hydration Serum:

1. Hyaluronic Acid

Holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water to maintain the skin's moisture and elasticity for long-lasting hydration. Your skin will feel re-plumped and stay hydrated throughout the day.

2. Vitamin C

A powerful antioxidant that can help to brighten the skin and prevent common signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. A perfect treatment to diminish dark spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. 

3. Arbutin

A safe-skin brightening ingredient that works by reducing skin's melanin production. Its major benefit is to lighten the skin and reduce dark pigmentation. When paired with Vitamin C, Arbutin imparts even skin tone with improved radiance. 


Full Ingredients of Zarzou BHS


Aqua, Hyaluronic Acid, Carbomer, Glycerin, Arbutin, Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Spirulina Maxima Extract, Maltodextrin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Phenoxyethanol, Squalane, Ascorbic Acid, Glutathione, and Caprylyl glycol.


The Texture & How I Use It 


I wear this Zarzou serum two times per day, after wake up in the morning and before going to bed at night. I apply like 8-10 drops over my face because I really like the texture! The texture of the Zarzou Brightening & Hydration Serum is super lightweight (watery texture) and it absorbs into my skin pretty fast.  

Zarzou BHS Texture

My skin doesn't feel tacky or sticky at all after applying this serum. I think people with oily skin might love this serum's texture. 


My Personal Thoughts on Zarzou BHS


As there's no fragrance listed in the ingredient lists, I realized that there's almost no-smell for this serum (that's one of the reasons why I like to apply 8-10 drops). That somehow makes Zarzou Brightening & Hydration Serum is likely suitable for sensitive skin too. 

I have tooooooo many dark spots and acne scars and that's why I tried this serum at first. I'm not really consistent in applying this serum every day but the results are still amazing! I notice that all my dark spots and acne scars that have been residing on my face all this time, are slowly faded. 

On the other plus side, no more new acnes! They are getting harder to get on my skin, unless when I'm on period. My current skincare routine is just cleanser and this serum because I'm just that lazy to take EXTRA care of my skin (for now la). 

And this serum already provides me a great hydration agent for my skin. I don't have to wait for months to see any changes on my skin, but it only took me 3 days to notice the improvements. 

I like how my skin feels a little bright than before, no more uneven skin tone and dull skin, all those scars are gradually fading from day to day, and I don't even have to worry if there's new acne going to pop up on my face because it'll eventually get off my skin in just 2 days. 

They don't like to sit on my skin a bit longer as usual anymore tho. 

Huge thanks to this brand (Zarzou Beauty) for formulating this magic brightening and hydrating serum, it's kinda a great weapon for lazy people like me who always ruin her own skincare routine by procrastinating all the time but still want to complain about her scars and acne. I will definitely repurchase this serum. 

I'm actually on my way for my second bottle of Zarzou BHS so get yours now! Don't be late.


How to Purchase Zarzou Brightening & Hydration Serum (BHS)?


You can simply get your own Zarzou Brightening & Hydration Serum (BHS) through their stockists or agents all over this country. If you want to get yours in a single click, just search Zarzou serum and your area name to find the nearest agent, okiii. 

But if you're just tired of a conversation (like me), you can purchase from their trusted resellers at Shopee. Just add to cart and pay. No need to chat a human.

8 Benefits of BigPay Card [Better Banking Alternative]

BigPay is a free money app that comes with a prepaid Mastercard which can be used anywhere in the world. 

It has its own digital wallet features where you can perform both domestic and international transfers without hassle. BigPay was launched in 2018 as part of the AirAsia group of companies that aims to provide a better alternative to conventional banks. 

You can actually use this card like a normal debit or credit card at any merchants that accept Mastercard. Spending with BigPay card day-to-day in Malaysia and overseas are all free. 

BigPay - Mobile Money for Mobile People

Nonetheless, BigPay has many benefits to at some point, I still don't see any other great mobile app payment that can beat their features. I can't really say if BigPay is an e-wallet but it's more on a scheme just like any other bank card - but with greater digital features and it's accepted worldwide.

Now, let's dive right into the details.


1. Proper Cashless Payment System


When you open a BigPay account, you'll also get a physical card that'll be sent right to your address for free. You won't need to open a bank account and also don't have to worry about any interest charges. 

Owning a BigPay card is pretty much like having a Mastercard. Let say if the merchant doesn't accept e-wallet payments and you don't have enough cash in hand, you'll still be able to pay using your BigPay card. 

This is probably a pretty smart move as many businesses in Malaysia nowadays are jumping on the cashless bandwagon and most Malaysians are already used to the idea of paying with cards. 

But you can't pay for more than the balance in your BigPay account as it's a prepaid card. You need to reload a sufficient amount of balance before you start spending. 

Since the BigPay card is basically a Mastercard, it can be used globally as long as where Mastercard is accepted regardless of online or offline. Users can perform their money payments and withdrawals at over 35 million Mastercard merchants worldwide.


2. Track All Your Expenses In One App


Unlike most other e-wallets, BigPay's transactions are all based on a prepaid Mastercard and it's fully managed by its own app called BigPay. This implementation is practically one of the first kind in Malaysia.

Since BigPay is digitally driven, you will get full transparency on your card's activities on the app including any fees and charges.

All your expenses made via BigPay card will be automatically tracked in the official app. You can view all your purchases and payments made either domestic or international transactions. The best part of it is all your expenses also will be automatically categorized within the app. 

BigPay App Expenses Track
*My expenses for July 2020

It's pretty much like having a personal finance 'diary'. I can easily track my monthly expenses through the BigPay app in a single one click. With this automated financial log, I can have a thorough image of how much I'd spend on foods, bills, shopping, and more for each month so that I can do proper budgeting in the future.

Here's a breakdown of each category of my previous expenses:

  • Retail - Kaison, H&M, Daiso, Typo, and other online stores
[Disclaimer: I don't shop that much. Pretty sure it's more for business purposes]
  • Mail & Telephone - Paid my family's monthly phone bill 
  • Financial services - Shopee pay (Reload my e-wallet using BigPay to collect more points)
  • Food & Beverages - Foodpanda, Mcd, Family Mart, Kfry
  • Professional services - Reload credit balance for the online courier services (Easy Parcel)
  • Transfer out - Sent out some money to my friend's BigPay account
  • Entertainment - Movies ticket, Klook
  • Transportation - Grab, MyCar, AirAsia's flight ticket

Fo better tracking, you can attach the picture of your receipt for each expense. This feature will benefit you with keeping a track of what you've spent and where because you might need to refer to your previous expenditure in the future. 

Also, for international transactions, the app will record and display your purchases for both local and used currency.



3. Safety Guaranteed & Approved by Bank Negara


BigPay has its own security features that help to protect user's money including facial recognition and fingerprint scanners to verify a user's identity. While creating an account on BigPay, you'll be asked to verify your identity and phone number thoroughly for an extra layer of security.

Most of the consumer's activity will be taking place through the official app including the registration process and you'll even get a notification every time you make or receive a payment through the app. The app allows you to set your preferred PIN number and you can block your card immediately through the app if it's missing or stolen.

Ideally, it means that you can be quicker on canceling or freezing your card using the app in case you notice any suspicious going on with your card's transactions instead of loading up a browser to go online or visit the official branch. You'll be managing your money all online and your money's safety is guaranteed by BigPay's security systems


4. Great customer support


BigPay always presents excellent customer support to their customers! Back then, the app had experienced some temporary maintenance issues and most users can't perform their transactions at that time including me. 

I contacted their team through Twitter's direct message (because I'm an avid user of that blue bird's app) to issue my problem and the conversation went smoothly. They quickly get in touch with me once the app recovers and it's very pleasing to my mind to have such great support from the friendly BigPay team.


5. Save More Money & Enjoy Rewards


For those who travel a lot with AirAsia (like me, when I was studying before), you can enjoy a zero processing fee when you book your flights online. 

AirAsia will waive any processing fees that usually charged by financial institutions if you book or purchase something through their platforms. You can also save more money on your bookings with more discounts on luggage and other inflight services. 

Back then, I was frustrated when I have to pay an extra RM17 just for the processing fee every time I want to book a ticket. Like, you already get a cheap ticket but you still have to pay more. I was a student, you know, so I was looking for another way to pay lesser and this is how I ended up being a BigPay user until now.

BigPay also has its own rewards system. As you already might know, spending with BigPay will earn you Big Points on every transaction and you are able to link your AirAsia BIG member ID to your BigPay account using your email.

Just use your BigPay card to perform any transactions offline or online and your points will be reflected in your app. I even reload my e-wallet (Touch 'n Go, Grabpay, Shopeepay, etc) with my BigPay card so that I can earn more points, and can even track my expenses!

Points are usually valid for 2 years and these points can be used for discounted flights ticket or you can redeem any other AirAsia's lifestyle partner's rewards. 


6. Cheaper Rates for International transfer


Malaysian users are now able to transfer money abroad at cheaper rates and lower compared to banks, therefore helping them to save more. 

BigPay would be a great platform if you want to make a direct money transfer to an international bank account as you can easily find out the cost of your transfer directly in your BigPay app and it's depending on which country you're sending to. 

Transferring money abroad with BigPay can be completed in a few simple steps. You just need to enter the recipient details on the app and pay right away. BigPay's international transfer cost is still considerably cheaper than the average bank in Malaysia.

Thus, if you are traveling abroad, you could also use your BigPay card to shop as BigPay card can be used across the globe as long as the merchant accepts Mastercard. BigPay app will always show you the best currency exchange rates and you don't have to queue at the money changer anymore. 


7. Withdrawal on ATM


You can always withdraw your money using BigPay just like any bank card. Just look for the nearest ATM that has the Mastercard logo on it - but there's a fee. You'll be charged RM6 for domestic withdrawals and RM10 for international withdrawals.

It's more suitable for use in urgent situations and these charges will be reflected in your app. On the plus side, unlike your usual bank cards, you won't have to inform BigPay if you're traveling overseas and BigPay won't freeze your card.


8. Free Registration


The process of owning a BigPay card is pretty much less-hassle and it always free. During the registration process, you'll be required to submit a photo of your IC or passport, and a selfie picture of your face for verification. 

All of these processes will be taking place only through the official BigPay app. You don't need to visit any branch, submit countless documents, log in to any browsers, and so that it's really convenient. Sign up for an account in 5 minutes and wait for your card to be delivered to your preferred address for free. 

There's no annual fee at the moment but you have to top-up some amount of money into your account to activate your card. You can spend that money after your card is activated and there's no minimum balance needed.

Download your BigPay app here now and use the code 4IQDDSLTHC upon your registration to get an additional RM10 on your account after you activate your card.

[I will also get RM10 if you use that referral code]

  • Curcumin
  • Vitamins & Minerals
  • Cinamon & Maca

*I only received Brainzyme Focus Original and Brainzyme Focus Pro only so if you want to know my thoughts on these two, keep going on your read.


How do you take Brainzyme?


I consume Brainzyme as per recommendation to take 2 to 3 capsules in a day. You'll need a large glass of water by drinking half of the glass immediately before the capsules and the remaining half of the glass immediately after. 

They say it best to take Brainzyme without food for better results. For example, you can take them 30 minutes before or 60 minutes after food. If you want a stronger effect, increase the dosage but don't take more than 6 capsules in a day.


My personal thoughts on Brainzyme


For this section, I'm going to be completely honest. When Serena from Brainzyme first approached me, I was a bit skeptical to receive their products as most of the time, the word 'supplement' doesn't really associate with safety in my mind. Nonetheless, I do some research on their website regarding the ingredients and scientific resources before agreeing, and I discovered that they are entirely complying with British health and safety laws. It puts my mind at ease. 

I didn't take Brainzyme almost every day. Some days I just need to find an alternative to be more delicate in getting my works done so I tried Brainzyme. It gave me the will to sit down longer than usual and increase my focus on work. I'm able to get a lot more work done in a quicker time as my tendency to procrastinate is lower than before. I was pleased to find that Brainzyme really helps me to provide greater productivity.

Brainzyme Focus Original & Brainzyme Focus Pro

I didn't see any difference when taking Brainzyme Focus Original and Brainzyme Focus Pro but both had a similar effect as they really woke me up and made me feel very alert. Brainzyme Pro was said to have stronger effects than the original one but it feels the same for me. I don't know the science behind these two but the most important thing is I was able to complete any tasks quicker. 

If you are a student looking for an alternative to improve your motivation to spend more time on studying, I think it may be worth trying Brainzyme. 


Brainzyme side effects


Based on their sales to thousands of customers in the UK and across the world, the most common side effect that has been reported is the increased thirst among 20-30% of customers. I do get thirsty more than usual, so I drank more water during and after taking Brainzyme. But I found it's good to have an increased need for water in our body as it'll help to maintain our fluid balance.

You would also find it difficult to sleep at night if you take Brainzyme in the late afternoon or evening as the effects of Brainzyme would last up to 8 hours. Brainzyme would not affect your sleep if it's taken during the day and not too close to your bedtime. It is advisable to take the supplements in the morning or at least before 3 pm. 

Based on other previous customer reports, there are very few side effects of Brainzyme. I only experience to get more thirsty than I normally would after taking Brainzyme. Also, I usually take them in the morning for certain days so it doesn't affect any of my sleep. I just have to make sure that I'll drink enough water every time I took this supplement. But, if this supplement has low side effects, does that mean the intended effects won't be strong either? I wanted to find out.


Is Brainzyme safe?


Brainzyme's products are entirely safe to be consumed by students, professionals, or anyone who needs helps to perform better under pressure. It's basically a nootropics supplement pioneering in the field of nutritional cognitive enhancement and also known as a substance to improve mental performance without the use of drugs. Food supplements like natural nootropics tend to be safer than any pharmaceutical smart drugs and the ingredients in this natural nootropics are well-researched.

A Werewolf Boy | Korean Movie Review

Original poster

Film Synopsis


Summoned by an unexpected phone call, an elderly woman visits a cottage she used to go to when she was a girl to teach a wild boy how to behave as a human being. Memories of an orphan boy she knew 47 years ago come flooding back to her.


About this film


A Werewolf Boy is a 2012 South Korean fantasy romance film in which a beautiful teenage girl (Park Bo-young) was sent to the countryside because of her health. She met a feral boy (Song Joong-ki) and be friends with him - even the beast inside him is constantly waiting to burst out.

The initial release of this film is on 31 October 2012 in South Korea. Director Jo Sung-hee started to write this script while he was studying at the Korean Academy of Film Arts and the script went through several rewrites before it was finalized. A Werewolf Boy is basically Director Jo's commercial debut. This movie has quickly climbed up the box office charts to become the most successful Korean melodrama of all time.

Based on an interview, the director reveals that the original synopsis was quite different from the final screenplay. In the original synopsis, the roles were reversed between the woman and the guy. Also, the story was way more tragic. In order to make a commercial film, they swap the character's behavior and changed the ending. For the ending scene, they held several meetings and talked about many possible versions with the elderly Soon-Yi.

 

The werewolf boy


Song Joong-ki plays the role of the werewolf boy (Chul-soo) in this film. Chul-soo is a feral (wild) child because he has been isolated from human contact from a very young age. He doesn't know how to behave like a human being and can't socialize like a normal person. 

Soon Yi pat Chul soo's head

Chul-soo falls in love with the first and only girl, Soon-Yi who has ever treated him with such affection. Even after the next few decades, he did not forget his first love and faithfully waiting for Soon-Yi to come back to him.


Movies plot


Kim Soon-Yi, an elderly woman living in the US in her sixties receives an unexpected call about the sale of her old family home back in South Korea. She returns to her homeland and met by her granddaughter Eun-Joo.

They drive back to the house in a remote valley and Soon-Yi starts to recall her memories of 47 years ago when she was a 17-year old girl in 1965. She moved from Seoul along with her widowed mother and sister Sun-ja to undergo a period of rehabilitation after suffering problems with her lungs.

The family lived in courteous poverty at the mercy of their arrogant landlord, Ji-Tae, son of the business partner of Soon-Yi's late father. The beautiful yet introverted teenage girl Soon-Yi lives an isolated life without any friends because of her health problems.

One day, Soon-Yi bumps into a feral boy of about 19 in their yard. The boy acts wildly and he can neither speak nor read. Soon-Yi's kindhearted mother adopts him despite he behaves like a wild beast and names him Chul-soo. She assumes him as one of more than 60,000 orphaned children in the Korean War.

Soon-Yi doesn't like Chul-soo at first because she considers him a nuisance but eventually, she is having fun taming him according to a dog-training manual. She teaches him how to behave like a human being like how to wait patiently during mealtime, how to put dishes in the sink, writing, how to tie shoes, and other human behavior so that one day he could live like a normal man.

Chul-soo starts to demonstrate solid loyalty to her after he keeps getting affection every time he obeys Sonn-Yi's instructions. The two eventually become close as Soon-Yi opens her heart to Chul-soo and cause the arising envy of Ji-Tae, who lusts after Soon-Yi.

But their relationship is bound with hassles as Ji-tae begins to cause trouble. Chul-soo lets the beast inside him to burst out when he feels threatened and the villagers start to turn on him. In order to save the boy who constantly risked his life to be with her, Soon-Yi leaves him in the wood with a promise note: "Wait for me. I'll come back to you."

In the present day, Soon-Yi walks into the shed to find Chul-soo sitting in there, still looking young as he was 47 years ago. He hands her the note that she wrote and she realizes that he's been waiting all along. He reads her a book she had ever asked him to read all those years ago, as she fells asleep. 

She wakes up the next day with Chul-soo nowhere to be sight and then leaves the house with her granddaughter. Soon-Yi receives a call asking about the property. She tells him that she's not going to sell the place. Chul-soo watches from afar as the car drives away. 

A sequence in the ending post-credits shows Chul-soo is alone building a snowman.


Does A Werewolf Boy has a happy ending?


A Werewolf Boy doesn't have a happy ending but it isn't a tragic ending. More like a bittersweet, I think? I personally preferred the alternate ending as being said rather than the original version knowing that Chul-soo actually waits for her for freaking 47 years. Patiently. Desperately. With the same clothes. All alone. 

Soon Yi comes back to Chul soo

But Chul-soo doesn't blame her for making him wait for decades and he just keeps his promise when they met again. When I watch him rolling the snowballs to make a snowman in the post-credit scene, I just think that's Chul-soo. He is just what he is. 

The ending is still rather ambiguous and there are so many unsolved questions. It leaves us wondering if the elderly Soon-Yi comes back to him after refusing to sell the house. And why does Chul-so making the snowman all by himself in the sequence ending? How did he live his life all this while? How did he learn to speak and read books without anyone there to teach him? But most importantly, why the woman didn't go back to him?!

Nonetheless, although the film has a very cheery and heartwarming air to it, the climax and ending plots remind me that although it's a fantasy movie, it's still realistic. 


A Werewolf Boy alternate ending


Director Jo revealed that they had shot an alternate ending for this movie due to the popular demand. This movie was re-released on 6 December 2012 with that alternate ending. The alternate ending is being said that it involves Soon-Yi and among the deleted scenes are moments from Ji-tae's childhood as well as more focus on the unfold plots of the neighborhood. But I don't know if this is true since I never watch it yet.

However, I've been looking everywhere for the alternate ending versions but there's nowhere to be found. I just found some links pointed to the clips of the alternate ending but they all seem to be removed or deleted for some reason. [If someone happens to know where to watch the alternate versions, please comment below. Curiosity kills me tho]. You can just assume that I already give up looking for it haha.

Anyway, I've read somewhere from a person who has already watched it, the person said that in the alternate ending, Soon-Yi finds Chul-soo in the room and suddenly she becomes young again. The camera follows above them when they hug each other and the room glows as if they are in a dream. The next morning, she wakes up to find the room dark and dingy, as if no one had been in it for years. She appeared to be old again and realizes that Chul-soo is gone as if it is all a dream. 

But still, the alternate version would just leave us as many unanswered questions like, where did Chul-soo go after being abandoned by Soon-Yi in the forest? Is Chul-soo still alive? Is Chul-soo still waiting for her? And more. I was just hoping that in the alternate ending, she won't leave him all alone.


My personal review on A Werewolf Boy


I didn't plan to write anything about this film at first but the reasons why I happen to put my words into this 'discussion' are because:

  • The ENDING is completely heart-wrenching like, dude, don't leave me hanging there. I want a basically significant clear ending and I don't care if it is the most tragic scene I'll ever watch. There are so many curious souls in the world who need answers, you know.
  • Despite the absolutely annoying ending, I still cry like a jerk. Especially during the 'Kajima' (don't go) scene, Chul-soo desperately didn't want Soon-Yi to leave him but she did it anyway in order to save him. I think the words Kajima will portray a very intense meaning for me now. Kajima. Kajima. 
Chul soo says 'Kajima' (don't go) to Soon Yi
*the delivery of Chul soo's Kajima killsssss

  • Song Joong-ki plays the lead role. I actually watch this movie just to watch him playing other roles because I just can't move on from Captain Yoo Shi-jin. What's more interesting is that he actually doesn't have any lines for most parts of the film. Throughout the movie, he literally says nothing. But when he does speak, my heart sank. 

Basically, this film is about two people who found something in one another that filled the void in their lives but it totally screwed my idea of a love story. It's a love story that is not even a love story because it is more of a pet story.  To me, werewolf Chul soo is just loyal to the person he has decided to make as the core of his universe while human Soon Yi struggles to keep him by her side because he is a bloody..... dangerous......... pet. 

The genre is fantasy, as you can see, it's a story about a werewolf. A girl makes a remarkable discovery in her own backyard, where she finds a wild boy. The family takes him in believing he is just an abandoned orphan with very little social skills. And the boy begins to have an interest in a girl in which he receives so much affection.

It's kinda cute when the girl decides to teach the werewolf Chul soo based on a dog-training manual. She begins the training by teaching him how to wait for something as in table manners, and she continues with brushing teeth, make up the bed, tying shoes, write, speak, and many more. She's very delicate to turn him into a normal human being. The girl Suni would also reward him with a gentle pat on his head whenever he does something correctly like, ''clever boy!". 

Let me present to you, the adorable most docile werewolf on earth, the gorgeous Chul soo:

the pretty gorgeous Song Joong ki
[don't you just hate it when this man always looks prettier than you?!]

Song Joong-ki barely pronounces a word in the movie, yet he still shows such devotion and manages to touch the ground of my heart with his delicate facial expressions and body language of a werewolf boy character. He earnestly plays the role making us completely believe that he is the spirit of that character even in real life. I would volunteer myself to replace Suni to go back to him. Pretty boy, don't wait for her. 

Anyway, this is Chul soo when the Kims family first discover him in their yard:

the werewolf boy, Chul soo first discovered
He really got the spirit...

With those eyes, he made me feels scared, cried eagerly, and laugh (he's cute tho - there are few scenes I had to replay again and again just to digest his glorious cuteness). If anyone dares to chain him to bed and put a metal lock around his neck again (filming or not), you are going to be suffered to death

What tears my heart into a million pieces is that Suni abandoned him in the forest and she does not... come..... back. It's truly an overly long wait for Chul-soo but he still demonstrates the same loyalty towards her. The fact that the well-said alternate ending doesn't really change a thing, I prefer the original ending despite it still got me frustrated.

I suppose life sometimes can be like this - you simply have to appreciate every glimpses or snippet of absolute happiness because you will not realize those were the best of moments ever until they are actually gone.

At first, I thought the storyline would be more or less like twilight like, they're getting married, living happily ever after but it's not. People are so quick to make a comparison between this film and twilight because... there's a werewolf. When they end their story like this, it makes people keep thinking and think and think and think again and literally keeps thinking more of all the possibilities that the writer should have come up with. This movie could have been more perfectly ended than it already did. 

I'm glad I was curious about this movie and I just watch it even it's been too late for me to watch. I recommend you to watch this movie if you haven't yet and let's burst out a lot of tears together. If you like a romance and tear-jerking movie, just watch this.
