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.


Human Being vs. Human Doing

“God is concerned about YOU.” – Fr. Alex Balatbat It was nice to see Fr. Alex again, it’s been over a month since he visited Feast Greenhills. It seemed like he lost weight and he did say, around eight pounds. He mentioned that he had hiked Mt. Batulao and followed Bro. Bo Sanchez’s advice to fruitify your breakfast and vegify your lunch.  [Eat fruits for breakfast and vegetables for lunch] It was interesting to me that he mentioned about loving...

Keep it Simple

It is a joy to eat one of my favorite pizzas in the whole wide world. Yet it's so simple - just garlic and cheese on a pesto based dough. Life should be like this pizza - simple and uncomplicated. A simple smile, a simple touch, a simple word of encouragement is enough to make a big difference. Even the simplest solutions are the best. Make it simple. Just add love. Pearl of Truth: "O taste and see that the...

Moving Forward

“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) This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. Two words stand out in this beautiful teaching from St. Paul that suggest for us two valuable actions for change: Forgetting...

Eat Ice Cream

A friend of mine once said you cannot eat ice cream and be angry at the same time. So every time he gets upset or is tempted to blow off his top, he goes away and buys an ice cream for himself. Sometimes, he also buys one for the object of his upset  and they both end up laughing, over ice cream. When temperatures are rising in your head, why don't you pause for a moment and head off to...

What is Self-Worth?

What is Self-Worth? Thank you Danita for your beautiful artwork. When I was growing up, I did not value myself. I realize that I didn’t really understand what it meant to have a healthy sense of self-worth. Wikipedia defines it as self-esteem. Other related words include self-regard, self-respect and integrity.  Psychologist Carl Rogers observed in his clinical practice that many of the problems of his clients originated from how people despised themselves, hated themselves and considered...

Take a Bath

Photo courtesy of I know this advice sounds funny! But when you’re feeling emotionally unwell, all you want to do is sulk in your old t-shirt and pajamas and hide under the covers. I feel you. But you must help yourself. A long, nice bath or hot shower can help comfort your heart. Let the stress or the tears flow with the water. Light a candle and pray. Tomorrow will be a better day. Pearl...
