PLOY – Work@Clearwater, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur

I like this line:  Be dazzled by Ploy.  No, I don’t mean “ploy” as in “a calculated action to frustrate an opponent”… but rather “Ploy” as in “gems” in the Thai language.  Yes, all that are glittery and dazzling are represented in Ploy… from the glitzy shimmering  cushions to the gem-cut facet motif on its [...]
