Shopping at Freeport A' Famosa Outlet @ Melaka

The I-have-nothing-to-wear syndrome kicked again. More so, when Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year are coming one after another. Joining the success of Outlet Malls in the south and near KLIA2, A' Famosa launched Malaysia's latest outlet on 5th December 2015. I answered the calling and made my trip down to Melaka for my festive clothes hunt!


Dutch themed architecture welcomed me when I arrived. It is the perfect portrayal of the historical state. The single story mall is arranged in a 180,000 sqft open air space accommodating over 60 fashion, sport and accessory brands. This place is structured with beautiful landscapes, featuring a lake, fountains, carousel and windmill.

Freeport A' Famosa houses 60 premium brands like Nike, Cotton On, Esprit, Puma, G2000, Carlo Rino, Clarks, Forever 21, Samsonite, Folli Follie, Sacoor Brothers and more. To those who just cannot get enough, 40 more shops are expected to open in 2016 to satisfy your shopping fetish.

Forever 21 made an impression with their inevitable sale. It was hard not to get something from there. The "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" offer got almost everyone hooked. Scroll down to see what I got.

Freeport A' Famosa has amenities that facilitates your shopping experience comprehensively. Not enough money? Fret not as there are money changers and ATMs. Guest Service, Lost and Found and Special Needs counters are all ready to ease your challenges while you shop. Public transport is available from KL to the outlet and those who drive will be pleased to know that there are 1500 free parking spaces. Parents have the privacy of Parents Room to carry out their duties.
Open air concept makes it relaxing and casual

In Freeport A' Famosa, you can find deals up to 80% discount, everyday, all year round. Go ahead and comb the mall for steals that will make you feel like a champion. Mirrors after mirrors, fittings after fittings, I managed to find a set of clothes that will make my mother proud on Chinese New Year!
Clothes Fitting
This long top with side slits from Forever 21 is striking and refreshing in orange, adequately balanced with white that brightens the face and styled with a black horizontal stripe. The material is very light and flies with slight movements or wind.

Throw a long golden chain around the neck to make it more interesting or more fengshui speaking, to bring the ong (fortune or luck) during the festive season.
My pick for the day
The faux leather pants also from Forever 21 anchors the look with good cutting. The material is a little hot but no pain no gain! I love the cutting of the pants and it is sufficient to give that sophisticated look with any top. I should have paired the pants with black boots or thick strap black heels to elongate my stature but anyhoo...you won't go too wrong with any heels :)
My winning photo
The best revelation is the price. All these for only RM160 in total.
