I’m broke from the little shopping trip at Far East Shopping Centre today. After the burning of my wallet, I decided to head down to Balcony to check what the hype was all about. It’s this cute little establishment in the middle of town, complete with their quirky decor. If you guys can’t really see what’s in the picture, the seats placed on the outside of the venue are shaped in such a way that they kind of remind me of little bird cages. Doesn’t help that the image reminds me of those old chinese men and their singing birds which cages they hang at their balconies. Between myself and the nifty chairs lies a artificial water wall, and you can see that there’s an image of a flower or something projected onto that wall. Small matter but I believe that it’s the little things that ultimately add to the mood.

The mood and sense of cosiness is definitely there, made better by the ambient tracks which they played overhead and I would definitely want to check out the bar area( I was downstairs at the dining area) sometime.

    You went shopping at Far East Shopping Centre or Far East Plaza? ;) Haha :P

    Balcony has a jacuzzi inside! With live women in bikinis! No I read that from Juice, I haven’t yet been there. But I should, and will, if just to see the bare ladies perhaps.

    my bad! it’s indeed Far East Plaza. To think I’m a regular there and I got the name wrong!

    Far East Shopping Centre is the dubious-looking building on the other side of Liat Towers from Wheelock Place. Home to Shashlik’s brand of Russian food and other, er, establishments of sometimes indeterminate intention.
