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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Weak, badly written. I am shocked at the other reviews; they must all be the author's friends.Published 23 months ago by Galactic Blue Hand
The book is a compilation of text messages. Better narration could have given justice to such touching story. The author probably didn't have enough time to edit the novel.Published on January 14, 2013 by JaySan
