Everything started with just an imagination of an island built only in my mind based on what I had heard and watched with stories from affluent raving about it. Never did I imagine that someday, I will be personally visiting the same island which only caters to the privileged few. Never had it come across my mind that I am now the one sharing “my story” about a piece of heaven on earth. Though, most of you would agree that it is still better to see a place once than to hear about it a thousand times.
My Balesin experience is not only about what my eyes have seen but also about how I have viewed the world and life in general. It is not about the smell of fresh air from the sea, but the appreciation of breathing outside the busy life in the city. It is neither the feeling of the sand under your feet nor the splashing of the waves but the surge of emotions that surface within you during your stay in the island. It was a humbling experience that you suddenly realized that you are just a piece of a puzzle in a very complex world taking part of a paradise made only by God.
The different types of architectures varying from Mediterranean to Asian highlight the diversity among us in terms of cultures. A reflection of the way we should understand and relate with our officemates and friends, because it is only when you truly understand diversity that you truly learn to embrace their uniqueness and begin to care.
In this island, you will know people who choose to be successful and stand out among the crowd. You will hear their stories of failures and success, but never a story of giving up. Affluent people are just like any other normal people by sight except that with them there is no other option in life except “Success”. However, it is equally vital to always acknowledge that every blessings and favor comes from God whom we should be giving our praise and gratitude each day.
Balesin is indeed a paradise that goes beyond our eyes as it provides not only a distinct aesthetic view of the world but creates a deeper appreciation of life which can only be gained through introspection amidst its unique splendor. “Balesin” is truly a piece of paradise constructed by men and a piece of heaven on earth which I have been so blessed to experience and given the privileged to share.
