I think the only thing missing from Balesin would be a never ending supply of chocolates and maybe Johnny Depp on my bed. If it had that then I would most definitely believe that I have died and this is my heaven.
It was Tessa’s weekend birthday celebration in Balesin and I was there to help her coordinate the Fila Amazing Race event on Saturday. The island is massive and has villages that represent top luxury vacation spots in the world – There’s the Bali Village, Phuket, St. Tropez, Costa Del Sol, Ifugao Village and Mykonos. Lahat sila, bongga! Mejo ayoko lang masyadong mag stay sa Mykonos kasi puro puti ang aura ng mga bahay doon, parang anino lang ang peg ko.
Seriously though, the island and the resort is absolutely breathtaking be it during the day and especially at night. I was able to see, for the first time, the milky way!! I was on my way back to my room from Tessa’s Pink Party and I looked up to see the whole night sky adorned with hundreds of stars and right there, in the dark island sky was a beautiful strip of white, orange and purple. I ran to the pool (heated, by the way) and ripped my clothes off and floated on my back while I gazed upon heaven’s jewels. That moment couldn’t be any more perfect unless Ethan Hawke would be right there with me. Pouring emotionally charged dialogue with references to obscure writers using polysyllabic words…maybe.
Thank you so much Tessa for letting me have this experience! You Golden Girl You! 😀
