Synopsis from GSC website

Ice Kacang Puppy Love is a profoundly emotional tale
of teenager's puppy love,
parental love, generation gap, truth and make-believe.
Set in a unique small town of 1980's Malaysia,
the story evolves between a nice but
shame boy - Botak (Ah Niu) and
a brave and adventurous girl - Da Jia Yu (Lee Sinje).

What do you think of both the main leads' look from the back?

The characters  of both the main casts
- Botak and Da Jia Yu are well written.
The guy was very patient and was a quite type; being attracted 
to his total opposite, aggresive and loud girl, Da Jia Yu.  

I like the way the movie being video, the picture are very nice,
when the 'couple' released the fighting fish.
The painting of Da Jia Yu is another plus point
to bring out the emotional feelings by Botak.
Plain story lines but goes very deep and touches on parental love
between Da Jia Yu and her mother. 

Rating: 7/10
Stars: 3 1/2 of 5 stars
