Balesin...a taste of Bali, Mykonos, St. Tropez, Phuket , Costa del Sol and Toscana in the Philippines
Have you heard of Balesin Island? In my case, I haven’t until late 2014 when a friend shared some photos. Then this private island made it to my bucket list!
But how can I go there, if it’s for members only? Surprisingly a friend invited me to tag along in their conference there! And so….my dream came true.
What is Balesin? What is there to see and experience? This is what I will share with you.
Balesin is a 500- hectare island located in Polillo , Quezon, available only to members and their guests. Flying time to the island is 20 minutes from Manila by private or chartered plane. ( 9-seater or 19-seater).
One should make sure to bring his credit card because restaurants does not take cash.
It features seven themed villages based on the world’s most alluring destinations .
Bali, Mykonos, St. Tropez, Phuket , Costa del Sol , Toscana and Balesin
Transportation within the island is free...
Ohhh...the pool in every village has it's unique and stunning view.
A paradise seen by few....feeling thankful to have the opportunity to stay in this beautiful island for 3 days and 2 nights.

Proverbs 26:4, 5 – Wise Answers
Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
We notice in v:4, (depending on your Bible translation) the words "according" and "like." Don't answer and be "like" the fool. A foolish question does not become more wise by giving a foolish answer. You see, to answer his ridiculous question would be as if you are saying this is a worthwhile question. There are questions that does not deserve an answer.
But notice in v:5, there is not the word "like" but the word "wise." Answer the fool wisely so that he doesn't think he is wise. We must be very careful how we answer. The only reason to answer at all is to show him not to be conceited.
Taken together, these verses teach the appropriate way to answer a fool who is an unbeliever who rejects truth. He should not be answered with agreement to his own ideas and presuppositions, or he will think he is right. Rather he should be rebuked on the basis of his folly and shown the truth so he sees how foolish he is.
What may be at one time our duty to restrain, at another time, and under different circumstances, it may be no less our duty to do. Silence may sometimes be mistaken for defeat. Unanswered words may be deemed unanswerable, and the fool become arrogant, more and more wise in his own conceit (Pro 26:12; Job 11:2).
An answer therefore may be called for; yet not in folly, but to folly; “not in his foolish manner, but in the manner which his foolishness required;” not according to his folly, but according to your own wisdom.
Oh! for wisdom to govern the tongue, to discover “the time to keep silence, and the time to speak” (Ecc 3:7); most of all to suggest the “word fitly spoken” (Pro 15:23; 25:11) for effective reproof.

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. --- Helen Keller
Just want to share what kind of joy you can give with a little kindness. Want to encourage everyone to do a little change in his own little corner , so the world we live in can be a better place.
Each of us has something to give. Some have wealth, some have talents, some have time. Whatever gifts we have been given -- large or small -- we should share generously. When we do, we make the world better for someone else and find true meaning and satisfaction in our own lives
My group just did an outreach / gift giving one fine Sunday, and to see the happy smiles and the hope we give to people is just an incredible feeling of fulfillment. Hope it moves you to do share too...here are some photos
