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.


Accept Your Weaknesses

It’s the time of the month once again. PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) keeps me on the edge of my seat. I feel easily irritated and a bit more sensitive. Back in the day when I hadn’t been aware of its symptoms, I often wondered why I would suddenly feel irritable for no reason at all. Maybe this is why some people call PMS, the “crazies,” how  hormonal changes can cause emotional disturbances in women. I used to deny that it happens...

Are you Humble?

This topic is close to my heart. I used to be really confused about what it means to be humble. Until one day God enlightened me through the wise words of my godmother, Sr. Rafaelie.  She said, “True humility is walking in the truth.” Simply put, it’s being who you really are. Recently, I was reminded of this again when I read Fr. Rudy Horst’s reflection on a Gospel reading. He also said that, “Humility rests on truth.” “When Jesus...

Seize Your Day

The day is almost over! Where did the hours go?  "Time flies so fast" won't be a cliche if it weren't so true. Just how exactly do we redeem the day? How do we make our days more fruitful, more purposeful, more seized? These three questions developed by John Maxwell have been particularly helpful to me. Just wanted to share this with you 🙂 He shared that before deciding where to invest his time, he asks himself three things, the 3R's...

Dare to Dream

When I was young, I wanted to become an astronomer but this dream faded away like a comet gone too soon. Maybe you wanted to be one too? I feel you! Perhaps most dreamers always want to aim for the stars. 🙂  And there is nothing wrong with that. 🙂 Yet back on land, I realized that there are those dreams that do not die in our hearts, persistent as the sun, no matter how old we grow. These are...

Love is Remembering

I'm a sucker for love stories. I like listening to couples share about how they came together.  I'm fond of asking random questions that put couples in the hot seat. Questions such as how you met, what you liked about each other, how did you know he/she is the one (to which people always answer, "Oh you just know," which is very helpful, I guess 😉 Perhaps some are kind of slow in knowing since the most beautiful stories take...

It’s About Time

“There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. A time to give birth, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build...” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-15) I knew of someone who brought a timer to work. It’s the one that you mechanically turn the dial and the alarm...
