One of my friend in the group told me that Malaysia has a new shopping paradise which is offically opened last week and is known for it's great discounts all year round, so since I am looking for some new clothes, I decided to go with them.
This new place is Johor Premium Outlets aka JPO is located at Kulaijaya in the Iskandar Malaysia zone. We took a cab from City Square and reached the place in half an hour. You may view a link here to get more information on getting there. http://blog.malaysia-asia.my/2011/12/johor-premium-outlets-jpo.html
|Lots of parking space!|
I bought myself a Coach Bag, Pedro Shoes, Nike Polo Tee, Nike Backpack and some small items for Xmas gift exchange. The food was good and cheap, you can't get to eat the same food at the same price in Singapore.
We ate at a restaurant named Taang ShiFu. The ambience is good and they specialises in Herbal delicacy, some of the items they have are Herbal Chicken, Sharp Fin, Bird Nest, Scallops and Abalone mixed rice etc. The food is good and cheaper than Singapore.

1) Ambience: 4/5
2) Food: 4/5
3) Price: 4.5/5
4) Service: 1/5 (Slow service, we have to remind the staff many times to serve us drinks. There is no napkin served too)
This trip is fun! We spend the whole day shopping and eating, that night I am so tired and slept so well! We are planning to visit this place again next year when all the shops are open =)
P.S I think there is a shuttle bus that brings you from City Square to JPO to and fro, please check before you go ^.^
