Before go to shopping, Freeport A'Famosa Outlet team invited 4 celebrity bloggers/ influencers to sharing their fashion and shopping tips. 
This is the first scene when we reached at the entrance. Looooong queue at Nike outlet! I checked it out after that and found out the price range of sport shoes about from RM119-400,  Okay, RM400 is for those exclusive one, but most of them priced at RM159, and it is not outdated model! Really so cheap!!! I went to Mitsui Outlet before, they are selling different stocks and not as cheap as here. For example, you can find Nike Air Max (very popular style recently) at Mitsui Outlet but Freeport A'Famosa Outlet don't have this; i have been searching nice sport wear at Mitsui but nothing nice there (quite outdated) and i found it here, price is much more attractive at Freeport A'Famosa Outlet. Many bloggers bought at least 1 pair of Nike shoes, i didn't get any because i bought my Adidas Tubular at Hong Kong with super expensive price. (╥﹏╥)
By the way, you can get the hottest shoes collection at Puma Freeport A'Famosa Outlet. It is selling the classic and some latest version at only RM159 / RM169 (retail price : RM238++) Why i know? because i was shopping at Puma one month ago LOL...
Girls must run to this shop, am i right? 
But honestly, the price is not attractive and same promo on going with KL. I want to buy a black pleated skirt there but when i saw that price tag (RM110), hmm... what is the different??  
There are up to 75% discount at Sacoor Brothers, i bought a lamb wool sweater cost RM92 (retail price: RM400). Worth it? YES!!!
Had our tea-time at West 57th St by Zang Toi.
Talk about 'Style on a Shoestring' and The Most Popular Blogger Contest, i was fall under 'stylish' category, are you feel refreshing when saw my style? anyway i love it so much since i literally have been in search of yellow dress for few months=P
Yellow Flare Dress - RM49.90 | Brand: Only
Bra - RM 49.90 | Brand: Triumph
Sport Shoes - on my own | Adidas Tubular 
That's it? I actually bought a long maxi dress from Cotton On (RM65), grey lamb wool sweater from Sacoor Brother (RM92), 2 set of Triumph bra at RM40 each. But yeah! minimalism is my favourite style, why have to put it all on body and feel not comfortable? 
Triumph is real selling very cheap, i saw the cheapest price of bra is RM20-30 and the quality and pattern is good! RM169 for 2 push up bra, cheap or not babe? Please take a look when go there ok? 
With budget RM350, you may only can buy 2 or 3 items in KL but at Freeport A'Famosa, at least i grab 6 items and go home happily. =)
