Konnichiwa UNIQLO! - UNIQLO Malaysia Grand Opening @ Fahrenheit 88

DSC_0092(2)
Finally, the long awaited Japanese brand UNIQLO is here in Malaysia! 4th of November marks the launch of its first store in Malaysia at Fahrenheit 88. UNIQLO Malaysia is the largest outlet in Southeast Asia which is 3 storeys high!

Me and Sharmayne decided to be gung ho/crazy and do something that we've never done before, which is to line up in the early morning. Shasha came to my place at 6am and surprisingly we reached KL in just 25 minutes! If only the traffic could be this smooth everyday... Parked the car and searched for the queue to start lining up. About 100 people were there already when we reached, some even came since last night! =O  

Since we have like 4-5 hours to kill, brought along The Lost Symbol to read and also sweet potato for breakfast :)

More and more people started pouring in as time pass. The line even reached to the back of the mall. Some attempted to cut queue and kudos to UNIQLO's management for solving the problem :)


Happy to be an early bird to stand a chance to win a trip to Japan :)

After the launch, we finally get to go in store to check out UNIQLO's products! *frenzy mode on*

Staffs giving away free tote bag for the first 1000 customers. The staffs were on high spirit greeting everyone and they're friendly too :) Shasha was saying they were injected with Happy Serum or something. LOL.

They have a lot of pretty winter wear this season. Affordable too :)
Too bad Malaysia is hot, hot, HOT!


Queuing up for the changing room. Sooo many people!

neat to messy
Since UNIQLO is having a special promotion starting today till Sunday, everyone was rushing to get something. Check out the original state and the aftermath as more people came in!

Messy kan? Like war zone xD

Waiting for pay for our items. Unfortunately, the jeans on promotion at RM49.90 doesn't seem to have a nice cut and fit. Changed to a few smaller size but it didn't go to well. Didn't get it in the end. Managed to use some RM20 voucher from GO UNIQLO. Too bad I didn't bring all of them. sheesh.

aftershopping
Happy shoppers! We thought we spend quite a long time in UNIQLO but it was only about an hour and a half. Felt that the ladies outfits wasn't much of a choice. Not my style =\ Ended up getting some tee's from the guys section.

crowdafter
Flabbergasting! There were tons of people queuing up during noon as well which will probably last till the night. UNIQLO must have earned quite a number today...

Still can't hide our joy! We're relief that we actually came at 6.30am if not we'll end up god knows where at the back of the line waiting for hours to get in.

Let's see the damage I've done today :(
shirts
3 T-shirts for the brother from UNIQLO / Owl shirt from Chapter 8

UNIQLO shirts, fleece jacket, leggings! Some of the leggings are only at RM9.90! Rings and earrings from DooDleaccessories.

My thought of UNIQLO is that the items there are okay. Maybe because most of the collection now are for winter. Not much ladies wear that suited my taste. Shall wait for the next season. Till then, adios :)

  21. That's a crazyyyyyy amount of people. No one lines up for Uniqlo here in NY lol even when they first opened. I guess they dont get the same type of recognition? But I like how they tailor the jeans for you free of charge!
