Last Sunday, being the last day of my long Chinese New Year Holiday, we (with my wife) decided to explore the recently launched Premium Outlets in Malaysia, called Johor Premium Outlets (JPO). All in all, it takes us about 2 hours journey from Singapore to reach the destination (inclusive of the custom checks).
We reached JPO at about 12pm, without wasting much time, we started to zoom around immediately after gotten the VIP coupon booklet from the local tour guide. There are about 70 outlets scattered along 2 whole floors of 2 adjacent blocks. For your easy reference, following are the floor map and shops listing (click on the images to enlarge):

We spent about 4 hours + to complete the whole "shopping spree". The outcomes are 2 pairs of shoes, some cosmetic products and a lanyard from Coach (effectively not a very satisfactory outcome). If you are looking for cheap and heavy discounts from the branded shops like Coach, Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors etc..., prepared to be disappointed. Other than some selected value buys, the prices are not much cheaper than those in Singapore or other Premium Outlets oversea.
Following are some snapshots of the JPO (sorry for the amateur photo quality as I was using my iPhone for the shot):
