When it comes to shopping in Perth, of all the places, my top preference would be at Harbor Town which is actually located very near to the Perth city itself. The entire shopping mall is built based on open to natural air and lighting concept, and only two floors in total. I believe I have blogged about Harbor Town more than once previously, and I have also mentioned repeatedly that it is the best place to hunt for the best bargains when it comes to shopping for cloths.
Harbor Town, Perth
This is the center where all the factory outlets gather and basically have sales going on all year round. It gets very odd when it is summer, we have summer sale. When spring comes, spring sale. Winter sale, and then Autumn sale. Pointlessly redundant.
Apparently, while I was being away for so long, I did not realize that there is now the new Adidas Factory Outlet in Harbor Town. Now, besides Nike, we have Adidas. Yippieeee. Not that I am a huge fan of either brand, but having more options is always a good thing. I know for Malaysians especially, there are many people who would be overly crazy over Nike stuff, and equally as many people being obsessed over Adidas products. Certainly not me. Why?
The answer is simple. I could not afford any of those ridiculously over-priced brands. I am a poor poor boy. But no, seriously, not that I have anything against those brands, but wearing a Nike does not make you look any cooler or hotter. No they don't.

There are so plenty of other places and shops in Harbor Town that I usually frequent and have a look out on new wardrobe materials. Some places have sales like nothing being over 20 bucks store wide, or 50% discount storewide for 2 days. It is during those strategic timing that I could worrilessly and guiltlessly fork out a small amount of cash to diversify my boring and dull looking collection of cloths. I wear mostly Ts and casual pants, nothing fashionable and overly fancy. I like my appearance simple and plain. Shows my innocence and sweetness at a glance, no?
NIKE Factory Outlet
I found this round mirror at the corner, of course, cam-whoring time !!
You know, I am one guy who loves window shopping. I do admit it gets miserable sometimes when you see something you so desperately want to buy but trying your best to restrict yourself from buying considering the tight budget in hand. But the joy and therapeutic effect of shopping are just indescribable. Window shopping (since I am always cashless) can take off worries off your shoulders for a while. It is fun, and best of all, it is free. And I love to window shop at Harbor Town. And I do it alone most of the time, just my preference.

Sometimes I just wish I have unlimited cash to spend, so I do not have to think think think think so much before buying even a 10 bucks T-shirt.
But nevertheless, without buying, touching, and trying the shirt on would be satisfying enough. That is what window shopping is all about. At Harbor town, you have all those factory outlets with good range and variety of cloths to play around with.
