Us From the Foot of The Mountain, From Penang

Why us at the foot of the mountain?

We at Balak’s love supporting and cheering on entrepreneurship, because it’s not about the business, it’s about the spirit.
Entrepreneurship is a balance between knowledge, hard work, creativity and a little luck. Sometimes, you need opportunity to make something happen – and you also need to be ready when opportunity comes.

Our world is coming, open your eyes and stay alive.
To see the world, things dangerous to come to,
To see behind walls, draw closers,
To find each other and to feel.

– Balak’s

Who We Are?

山脚下的我们,
每个人心中都有一团火,
可是路过的人只看到烟,
现在要在理想和生存之中做出一个选择,
真的很难,
可是只有小朋友做选择,
我们两个都要。

Us at the foot of the mountain. 
There’s a fire in all of us;
those who walk by only see smoke.
It’s really tough deciding between 
chasing dreams and surviving. 
But only children make choices, we’re doing both.

Meet Our Friends

The story begins with a coffee table. It’s where we mused, talked, and created. We were fearless but not flightless. We swam against the current, unburdened by sadness. We refused to give in to fate; we thought only of faraway lands, greener pastures, unknown destinations.
