John Liu: If two people meet and they both fall in love, that's destiny for sure.If neither loves the other, even if they meet millions of times, it's still not destiny.If one's in love and the other isn't, and the one who's in love grabs on and won't let go while the other just wants to run away, not only is it not destiny... It's pain.

Heart-warming Love Story
6 August 2007 | by ( – See all my reviews

Heung joh chow heung yau chow (Turn Left, Turn Right) is a heart-warming love story. There I said it. o0o0ps I gotta write a minimum of 10 lines? Alright, here goes.

It's a story of two person, who met in school & then lost contact, then met some few years after, only to lost contact again. Weird, but fascinating! They only know each other by their school identification number, they don't know other info i.e whereabouts, much less their favorite food, color, etc..etc.. Even the phone number they exchanged got lost.

Little did they know that they were destined to be together! They don't even know that they were very close to each other wherever they went. Say, when she was standing in a train, he was sitting down while reading a newspaper. Such a coincidence! Watch as they 'worked' hard to find each other. They did the same thing, i.e the way they talk, the way they they think, even their interests are the same too! The ending is too unbelievable but an original, nonetheless! I don't think audiences can figure out the ending!
