    F.O.S.: famous Local Budget export overruns Store

    by machomikemd Written Jun 30, 2014

    If you want to buy famous International Brands but is more than 50 to 80% OFF the actual price, then try to find the F.O.S. Stores in the various Malls around Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley Area!

    F.O.S. is a chain of budget department stores (that started from a single store in Sunway Pyramid in 1997) that specializes in selling various export overruns and factory rejects of famous international brands like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie and Fitch and Paul Frank; to name a few, which they then buy by the bulk at different factories that made them across asia and then then sell them here at 50% or more of the original price and the items range from mens wear and womens wear.

    at present, they have more than 50 outlets across Malaysia and even in Indonesia and Vietnam.

    we did shop at their first store at the Sunway Pyramid Mall.

    opens: 10:00 am to 11:00 pm everyday

    according to their website:

    F.O.S is an established clothing retail chain that specializes in imported stock lots and overruns. The inaugural opening of its outlet in Sunway Pyramid in 1997, during the infamous economic crisis in Malaysia, marked the birth of F.O.S.

    From that single outlet in Sunway Pyramid, F.O.S has grown to a total of more than 50 outlets to date throughout major shopping complexes located in the Peninsular as well as Sabah & Sarawak. Our number of outlets is constantly growing with the opening of each new major and exciting shopping complex throughout the country.

    It is a little known fact that F.O.S is locally established. In fact, people are astonished that F.O.S is of local origin and very much home grown.

    The success story lies in the very concept of F.O.S itself. A wide range of clothing and accessories are made available at an affordable price at F.O.S.

    What to buy: not a dent on your wallet as the items are 50% to ever 85% off from the original prices as the items here are usually off season, export overruns or factory rejects.

    all mens wear and womens weare like jeans, slacks, skirts, jackets, t-shirts, socks, polo shirts, caps, hats, gloves, party dress and a lot more.

    What to pay: not a dent on your wallet

    Batu Caves Souvenir Stalls: Souvenir Stalls Along Batu Caves

    by machomikemd Written Jun 30, 2014

    being a major tourist area, off course you would fine many souvenir stalls and shops around the Batu Caves complex. but there is a distinction as the souvenir stalls around the complex at the ground level sells mostly kitschy souvenir items that you can find in other touristy areas of Kuala Lumpur like fridge magnets, shot glasses, post cards, paper weights and some Hindu Religious Items. The Stalls at the Top of the Main Cave sells mostly Hindu Religious Items as it is geared mostly to hindu pilgrims, but they have some general souvenir items too.

    What to buy: all the kitschy souvenir items you can think of, like batu caves post cards or pictures, pewter, shot glasses, general Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia Souvenir stuffs and even some local snacks and drinks. you can even buy Hindu Religious items.

    What to pay: haggling is a must! this is a major tourist area.

    Valrhona: Luxe International Chocolate Brand

    by machomikemd Written Jun 30, 2014

    it was a nice surpise to be able to bump inside the chocolate store of one of the most expensive and luxe chocolates of the world (better than my favorite godiva chocolates) here at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Eraman Duty Free Shop, as this luxe chocolate brand has no branches in Malaysia (except here at the KLIA). Valrhona focuses mainly on high-grade luxury chocolate marketed for professional (such as chocolatiers and bakers) as well as for private consumption. Though considered one of the foremost chocolate makers in the world, Valrhona is in roughly the same price range as Godiva and Neuhaus and the price is expensive since they only use chocolate beans from a single year harvest of one of their contract plantations mainly in the south america and carribbean areas. The cacao beans they used are sourced from the rare Criollo Cacao, which is only 2 to 3% of all cacao production, hence the very expensive price.

    What to buy: the Grand Cru Collection Chocolates like the Guanaja which is 75% dark chocolate, the Jivral which is 40% chocolate, the Abinao at 85% dark chocolate and others. a box of a grand cru collection with 54 small pieces of assorted grand crus is RM 190 a box and for a tin box with 18 pieces at RM 70 and the regular packed single origin chocolates like abinao or tainori at RM 60 a pack.

    What to pay: much more than the regular chocolates like cadburys or ferrero roche or hershey's

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Times Square, another large shopping mall in KL is located near the Park Royal Hotel.

    The interesting thing about this shopping centre is that it has a 5 star hotel (Berjaya Times Square), a theme park and an IMAX Theater.

    Hubby and I found a glasses shop and hubby bought a new pair of expensive sunnies and I ordered a pair of subscription glasses. I also bought a stack of costume jewelry - there are some awsome 'bling' shops here ;o)

    Beryl's Chocolate Kingdom: Chocolate Factory

    by asianbelle Updated Dec 1, 2012

    Beryls was introduced to me during my visit by a cab driver. On the way back to our hotel from a DIY city tour, the friendly cab driver easily recognized us as tourists (we were talking in our native language with cameras hanging on our necks) and tried to be helpful by enumerating the "must sees and must dos" in KL. When the conversation veered towards shopping, that's when he dropped his most helpful suggestion "have you been to the chocolate factory? you must go there!".

    The thought that it is something like Willy Wonka's where we can eat as much chocolates as we want really got us excited. Initially, we were disappointed that it was a store and not a factory. But the moment we stepped inside, our disappointment was replaced by excitement again.

    The shop has an "old country" feeling as it was an old house converted into a store. We only got to sample a few small pieces, but we found the selection and the chocolate-y taste overwhelming.

    What to buy: Beryls is a local chocolate brand. Their products contains high percentage of cocoa. And they have a wide selection, from the basic milk chocolate to dark chocolate, choco-coated fruits, even exotic ones like yogurt and spicy chocolate.

    However, Beryls is not readily available in the airport's duty free shops and the selection is very limited. Hence, it is advised that you visit their store.

    What to pay: Beryls is a bit expensive, even compared to some imported chocolates. I think their cheapest is about MYR 20 per box. Although, they sometimes offer promos like buy 5 +1.
