Chinese term or phrase: 此時此處
This phrase is from a pop song by Sam Hui. The first idea is to use a literal translation as "Here and Now". But I think this has a special meaning in English of immediacy. The original phrase is more about a consciousness about the place and time.

From This Moment (On)


Explanation:
It'd difficult to know how to translate this without proper context of the lyrics. ;)

Adding the word, "On" may not be necessary, hence the brackets.
