How loving an individual can end in loving a country 13 Jun. 2012
By Peter Moss - Published on
Format: Paperback
The journey begins with a meticulously recorded account of the build-up to a relationship; one that holds our attention because we've all been that route and can vicariously relive our own experience through his. The vividly captured detail of Manila, on the eve of a Mr. Gay World contest, reinforces the verisimilitude of the narrative, and our interest escalates as we realise this is going to be less of a novel than the genuine article. It's about as contemporary as any tale can be. We follow much of the development of this trans-oceanic love affair via SMS text messaging, and we share the eagerness and aching thumbs of racing to tap out those sometimes inane sentences, the impatience for those replies and the effort of trying to read what's left unsaid between the lines. About halfway through, a sense of foreboding builds as we wonder if the angel wings tattooed on the back of the beloved are destined only to briefly brush this earth, but we draw consolation from the words of `Our Song' quoted at the book's beginning: `This song is not about loss, it's about gain'. A deeply personal and beautifully crafted memoir. - Peter Moss (author of The Singing Tree)

Always Forever by Ansh Das 28 Aug. 2012
By Elisa - Published on
Format: Paperback
The main question this memoir left me is: did AD meet Mikee too late or just in time? From the blurb of the book, you know that Mikee is dead and that his lover AD is attending his funeral. You start the book thinking you will read about a passionate love story, boy meets and loves boy, they will live happily ever after but fate has other plans. In any case the feeling is, this is a long term couple that only death shall part... and instead you open the book and read this date: 10 March 2011. And it's now August 2012, and the book is already printed and released, so how is that possible?

AD is flying to Manila to attend the Mr. Gay World competition as web reporter and the first day, 10 March 2011, he meets Mike Francis, Francis for his foreign friends, Mikee for his family. I don't think AD likes Mikee at first, but there was something pulling him to the guy. As an epiphany, when AD sees Mikee's angel wings tattoo, he realized Mikee is the love of his life. He would do everything for living this story, even moving to Manila from Hong Kong. But then, on 26 May 2011, not even 3 months after they met, Mikee is dead, and AD is coping with the loss. Or not coping. The strange thing is that AD didn't really know Mikee until he is dead; while attending Mikee's funeral, he has the chance to meet Mikee's family and friends, to start to understand who Mikee really was and what he wanted from life. AD will also understand that Mikee's reticence to talk about their future together was since Mikee knew they didn't have a future together. AD is really a fatalist guy, very into spiritual things and dealing with your emotional side, so, strange as it sounds, he is accepting Mikee's death, what he is not accepting is that he, at first, doesn't understand what was the meaning of meeting Mikee. The aftermath of Mikee's death will give him the chance to grasp that meaning.

This memoir was written like an outpouring of emotions into papers. It's not perfect, sometime I wanted to tell AD, stop doing that, but that is the difference of memoirs and novels, memoir is life and it doesn't have a carefully planned plot, and you cannot chance an event since you don't like it.

If I have to be true, I have the feeling that AD and Mikee were not destined to be a long term couple. They were too different, in age, in culture, in social status, even in their beliefs. AD met Mikee for a reason, and you will understand it reading this book, but the reason was not a love story. Truth be told, AD and Mikee don't have neither the time to decide if there was or not a love story between them; at today, AD considers himself Mikee's husband, he adopts Mikee's surname, and he made Mikee's family his own. But I think AD will find love sooner or later, and Mikee will be always a cherished memory, or at least I hope for him.

Mundane but extraordinary 14 Aug. 2012
By Damian - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a friend of the author, I can vouch that everything that AD has written in this book really happened to him and that explains why it can appear to be quite random at times. Yes, he was there at 9/11; yes, he has learned Qi Gong to an advanced level; yes, he has accessed his Akashic Records (though perhaps more explanation of this to the uninitiated reader could have been offered). The author did not construct these to advance a fictional storyline but simply because that was what he actually experienced.

Since it is all real-life, the events surrounding the passing away and mourning of his soulmate seem quite mundane and uninteresting. If you are looking for a Hollywood blockbuster or a romantic love story, this is not it. And yet, beneath the humdrum everyday existence documented in these pages, an extraordinary connection was forged between two people that is beautiful to behold. This is no fairy tale love at first sight, but the speed of its progression is astonishing and yet strangely it appears to evolve quite naturally. The untimely death is tragic but if everyone can experience love as deep as this just once in their lifetime, there would be no regrets.

This is a moving personal account and I thank AD for letting us glimpse into his heart and share his joy and sorrow.

Touched by an earth angel 10 July 2012
By Natalie Tong - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is not a love story. This is a story about life written in the most honest way. In so many ways we have forgotten about the essence of living and dying.

These are some of my favorite parts of the book

" Death was an unwanted separation. I was afraid it would turn into a reality if I spoke about it. I knew it was coming. I knew we had less time. Yet I chose to avoid talking about it".....

"The more painful our separation the more happier our reunions. I understood I was working on pain, sorrow and patience. I was learning to forgive and support other people through love and compassion.

" At every moment in life we are presented with so many choices. Most of the time, we make decisions that make us unhappy. The world would be a different place is we picked happiness over everything".

This book is about a man's journey into finding himself, reconnecting with how things should be, telling us to filter what is unimportant and giving us a chance to pure better human beings. It is funny that he called the protagonist an angel stuck on earth when I truly believe that he is the angel stuck on earth.

Every person should read this book.
