Freeport A’Famosa Outlet (FAO) is the third outlet opened in Malaysia, after Johor Premium Outlet and Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Sepang. FAO is located outside of A’Famosa Resort Malacca, about 30 minutes from Malacca town. if you’re from Klang Valley, it’s just about 55 minutes from Sungai Besi toll via North-South Highway.
and it’s just 20 minutes away from my workhome. no good. since it’s my birthday month, i went allll out when it comes to indulgence and self-pampering. facial, body massage, gel manicure and shoppings, all ticked.
be prepared to be bombarded with sales posters like this, being plastered at all the display windows, lure you walking in and go weak. the discount is pretty irresistible, ya speaking from my own experience. do note that the sales promotion varies from time to time.
FAO adopted Dutch heritage design where each brand is housed at an individual single-story shop lot. the outlet offers over 60 fashion, sport and accessories brand spread across 180 000 sq. ft. which means a lot of walking (and trying on clothing), so wear light and comfortable attire.
FAO is about 60% completed now, and the outlet finally opened its door to public last weekend and some of the brands spotted are..
Sacoor – working attire for men and women. the colour palette is pretty vast for guys.
Nike & Puma – patient is required when it comes to these two sporty brands. perpetual long queue is spotted especially Nike.
Luv Lux – features luxury brands including Versace & Moschino.
Curiosity – not forgetting about toddlers.
Tiamo (Under Aivoria Brand) & Clarks – the former offer comfy flats while you’ll get quality shoes at Clarks.
CarloRino – bags and shoes suitable for young working adults.
Triumph – ladies’ undergarments are well taken care of too. i walked out with two new bras (two for RM 169), my boobs are happy and so do i.
Samsonite – new luggage to store your loots, perhaps?
and when you’re tired, take a rest at West 57th Street by Zang Toi. i had tea punch to quench my thirst before continuing shopping.
