Prior to the official opening, I was fortunate enough to be invited as one of the 40 bloggers to visit Freeport A'Famosa Outlet for first hand shopping experience!
Celebrity bloggers sharing their fashion tips with all of us. I especially like Xandria Ooi and Heidi for their very genuine and humor personality.
