Most of us have thought about leaving our city life behind and moving to a remote island to be surrounded by nature’s beauty. However, not many of us can achieve that if we’re honest, except this family.
A loving father named Zhu from Jiangsu, China bought an uninhabited island because his son was suffering from a chronic disease and desperately needed clean and fresh air. The island reportedly cost the father 1,000,000 Yuan (approx. RM600,000), Kwong Wah reported.
The son was born in 2006 and was diagnosed with a lymphatic disease when he was just three years old. Zhu took his son to a hospital in Shanghai for treatment due to his severe condition.
“My wife and I were crying at the stairs. The doctor in Shanghai said it’s best for my son to live in a place with a peaceful environment and clean air. That could help tremendously with his health,” the father said.
Three years later, the father found an island about 1.5 hectares in size and bought the island’s lease for 30 years. He named it Wu Wei Island because the name in Mandarin means he’d do anything for his son.
On the island, Zhu built a house with seven rooms complete with air-conditioners, solar panels and other facilities for his family. On the northern side of the island, Zhu also built seven rooms for guests because many have shown interest in staying on Zhu’s island after his unique lifestyle became well-known.
“We work when the sun’s out and rest when the sun sets. The air is fresh and cool here. We pick wild vegetables, catch fishes and plant our own fruits and vegetables. We really enjoy the blessings provided by nature,” Zhu said.
The couple wakes up at 5am every day and sends their son to school using a speedboat. They would return to the island to work on their crops while waiting for their son to finish school.
Zhu also hung a hammock between trees and a swing so that they can relax there when they feel like it. His son’s favourite activity is none other than climbing a tree so he can enjoy the view from the top. Every night, they would turn in at 8pm so that they would be refreshed the next day. On the weekends, the family would go to the mainland to replenish sundry items since photosynthesis can’t give them shampoo.
In just a year, the wife’s sinusitis healed without taking any medication. Meanwhile, his son’s lymphatic condition has fully healed after just two years of staying there. They went for a check-up at the hospital and the result indicated that the boy is in the pink of health!
If you were given a choice to live on this island, would you take it? We know we would! Let us know what you think in the comments!
