Yes, there is romance in it, but it is mostly story driven. Not player driven. You don't get to choose who you are romantically involved with. For the case of Adi in Satay Club game, he met Anita while busy working at his stall.
And then something happened that made Adi heart broken and confused and afraid.
And then as the story progresses, we find Adi able to mend his broken heart when he met the same lady who gave him some advice much earlier in the game. If you want to know the whole story of what happened, get a copy of the game and play!
