Harvest Moon

There are few moments in your life when you encounter people and places that take you into another direction.

You go somewhere new, meet someone, do something you’ve never done before and you are never the same. The moment turns your life around.

Hiroki Sato never thought that such a day would also happen for him. He was only twelve years old when he started working hard for his career. Now in his twenties, Hiro is successful, famous, and exhausted. Left alone with his thoughts, he often wonders if there is more to life than his work, until he meets Michelle.

His brief encounter with her lights a dying spark inside him and he is drawn to her like the moon to the sun.

Their serendipitous meeting takes them to explore Beijing, Tokyo, and the Philippines together, but bridging their different worlds was not as easy as they thought it would be.

What can heal the pain of history? What can overcome the boundaries of the heart?

Perhaps, love.


When You Feel Lost

I’ve been driving again, a skill I abandoned for the last 10 years. I once got a ticket for an unintentional error on the road, I just didn’t have time (made time) to renew my license until recently. And now we’re back. I know ten years! That’s another story for another time. 🙂 I feel better equipped now, at least mentally, to brave the challenging roads of Manila. The streets are no different, it’s still traffic in the city. But...

Get a Soul Spa!

Hello Soul Friend, How are you today? Are you happy? Can you be happier? We understand how you are feeling. We’ve been there before. There was a time when we did not love the lives we were living. A time when we felt so broken in spirit that we wanted to stay under the covers and hide from the world. We did not love our selves and the choices we were making. There was a time too when we dreaded going...

Make Time for Reflection

Lately, I've been too preoccupied with much work, and it hurts my heart. It's difficult when we're always on the go and we don't have the time to pause and reflect on where we're going. To check if we are still on the right path. "An unexamined life is not worth living," Socrates reminds us. It's really when we take time to reflect on things that we can make sense of our lives, and hear what God is teaching us, where He...

Make Time for Exercise

I realized that when we are busy the easiest thing to let go of is ourselves. We set ourselves aside in order to accommodate other things that demand our time. But when we do this, when we reschedule our schedule with ourselves,  we  find ourselves exhausted and tired, cranky and with no energy left to give. There is wisdom in taking care of one’s self. In loving yourself in a healthy way, you have more of your self to give...

Finding Your Balance

In a popular coffee shop while writing this entry and there is so much noise 🙁 It is difficult to concentrate. But such is the cacophony of life. We encounter much noise in our lives every day too. There are lots of things vying for our attention, sometimes the essentials are sacrificed; the small stuff overwhelm the things that matter most. It is so easy to get distracted. It is so easy to miss the point. The past few weeks...

Forward 2016

“Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14) Happy New Year! I find this verse so timely as we find ourselves in 2016. Two words stand out from these beautiful words from St. Paul which give us two valuable...
