‘Sampaguita’ by Mark Manalang (Second Edition)



Manila is a beautiful city with a cruel, sorrowful side.

Japanese expat Kenichi Daimon knows this much from his leisurely walks along the streets of Malate and Ermita. Despite the state of his second home, he had grown accustomed to the powerlessness brought by living in a city threatened by crime, corruption, and indifference.

When a sampaguita vendor is kidnapped before Kenichi, his weak-willed response leads to a chain of events that would shatter everything he believes in and holds dear. That fateful encounter would also compel him to confront his mistake, the prelude to a vendetta that will set into stone his fate.

Thus begins Kenichi’s story of vengeance, atonement, love, and justice in a city stained with tears.
