Balconies as functional spaces

MALAYSIANS, what do we do with our balconies? Hang out our laundry? Have a few potted plants for some semblance of a garden? The go-to place for smokers in the family? No matter how large or limited your balcony space is, it could be a place for pontification, relaxation, sun-bathing or for taking in some fresh air, entertaining and dining, but never just a space to dry your washing.
