Orchard Central

Not to be confused with Central Mall at Clarke Quay. This newly open vertical mall is 8 stories high and counting. At least level 8 was the last floor open with shops. There is a 12th floor that my mom and I didn't make it to, i.e. Not Open yet. Same thing with B2, not open yet. In case, you were wondering why the lift buttons don't work. It is tall, but lean, with only 2 rows of shops, it also qualifies as the narrowest mall in Singapore yet.

To make it's point, it has a statue of a skinny fashonista 4 stories high (see picture above). This mall does have a few notable features; a rock climbing wall on the 4th flr next to a cafe (see pic below). For $15, you can give it a go. They also have several outdoor areas for alfresco dining on the 8th to 12th floors. Not for those afraid of heights. These areas are serviced by an outdoor escalator with no safety windows. Quite a ride, definitely not for the inebriated.

The entire ground floor is lined with fountains and jewellery shops. My favourite line-up and the fastest way to burn through your bonus. Also love the large scrapbooking store on the 5th flr.
