Our Big Bad Wolf Books Haul 2020

 Yay! our BBW Books box 1 and 2 had arrived. Busy with the books. Hence only now Mamarazzi have time to blog a bit

We bought on the 4th November morning and had trouble when Mamarazzi trying to pay for our purchase. Not sure what she click and "poof!" ... all the books in our cart went missing. 

Then she tuk tuk here and tuk tuk there and found our order. Order number created but can't pay.  Alamak!  how ah??? scroll down and found that the website have "Contact Us" form. She used that and left them a message. Within an hour a staff called Mamarazzi and they email her the link to make payment. Wow! efficient !  Order order number was 17XX and the website stated that the delivery would be in 3 to 8 days. 

On the 7th of November  our book haul had arrived. So fast! These are mostly my books. 

So thoughtful of them to enclosed a packet of cute stickers. 

On the 5th Mamarazzi went in again looking for books coz tak tahan see friends found some new titles. Looks like they also replenishes the titles online . Same as what they did during the physical sale at MIECC. 

Initially she planned to go in during mid sale. That's her usual game plan. Go BBW on Preview Day/1st Day. Once during mid sale when the have replenish the books with new titles and if possible once before the sale ends to see if we miss anything.

BBW sure have many fans. Sale started less than 24hours and there were 98XX orders. Mamarazzi told me our order sure arrived after the sale ends. Just imagine having to pack 9000 orders. Pengsan . She assumed that they can only pack around 1000 orders per day lah but mana tau.... our second box of books arrived on the 10th evening. Those people packing books 24hours non-stop ka? Hope Mr Wolf would belanja them big makan after the sale. 

Here is our little kaypohchi inspecting the books hoping for some doggy treat for herself.  

From her expression I guess you know what was the answer, right? LOL

Poor doggy. 

On the 10th evening, we went shopping again. This round, Mamarazzi found many titles that she likes. Borong one final box before the sale ends on the 11th. 

But what a surprise... BBW went and set up store at Shopee Malaysia pulak with larger discount free shipping, many discount vouchers and cashback . If you have missed out BBW you can still buy from Shopee . Just head over to Big Bad Wolf Books in Shopee Malaysia. Mamarazzi guess that BBW will join SHopee others countries too to bring them affordable books .

Big Bad Wolf Books Online Sale 2020

 Hi! How are you all? Time flies . Nearly a year had passed since the last Mamarazzi update the blog. Initially thought wanna just close it but... oh well.. we will see how as time goes. 

Over here life had changed since Covid19 started. There are ups and down . School was like sometimes is on sometimes off.  I preferred online class but parents said can't learn much from just an hour of google meet with the teachers 4 times a week . As for google classroom... mostly quiz.

Lucky for me the tuition center is very good. They were prepared for online classes since last year school closure due to haze problem. Now I "see" my tuition teachers more than my school teachers 

Mamarazzi remember Big Bad Wolf Books had planned for a books sale back in March  but then had to cancelled due to sudden spike in Covid19 cases detected and the whole country went under Movement Control Order. Everyone guai-guai stayed home. 

A friend had said that there is a report that book industry is blooming now but it is hard to phantom that for BBW. Their core business is from warehouse sale and their online sales is by their sister co  BookXcess. Mamarazzi don't think back in March their online business had matured much. They still depends on walk-in customers . 

They have millions of books and can't get them to the customers fast enough. One thing is marketing and another is during times like this, buy books will be one of the lowest priority. Some people lost their jobs this and that. 

July came. We were sort of released from "jail" . Economy had started again. Although some parts of Malaysia is having Conditional Movement Control Ordered imposed but people still able to work. 

Anyway... what is Mamarazzi "merapu-ing" about. Just that kesian la BBW being hit so hard. Hopefully this BBW Sale will help them to get some income to keep the company going and keep the staffs from being jobless. This is not only about helping local company but also helping those nice and friendly BBW and BookXcess staffs. 

The sale is on now till 11 November 2020. You can heads over to to check out their offers. 

The first 100 customers of each day who buy RM80 and above will be eligible for RM5 discount and 10% discount if buy RM300 and above. Free shipping to West Malaysia for orders above RM180 and 30% discount to East Malaysia with no minimum amount spent. 

I managed to login last night as they open up the website early. Did my shopping and Mamarazzi managed to help me check out my cart this morning. Had some problem during checking out but their staff, Dinie and James, had called Mamarazzi and help Mamarazzi to check out her cart after Mamarazi left a message at their webiste.

The website had crashed last night and till now the line is still not stable yet . You may try to login later and support. Best timing will be at witching hours as there would be less traffic.

Happy book hunting everyone! If you encountered any problem during check out time you can drop them a message or give them a call . 

Please be patience ya as this is their first time doing Online Warehouse Sale There are sure to be some teething problem but if everyone stay calm things can get sorted out faster.

Bye bye...time for my Online Tuition liao. Teacher is calling me.

December 2019 Wrap-Up

1st December

This is another all-in-one post. December was a busy month for us. Had an impetuous trip to Sekinchan. Just the right time as the Paddy Field are turning golden in color.

Wanted to visit La Familia Orchard but surprisingly it was not open. I wonder did they stop taking visitors or something else.

Visited the usual places. The Rice factory. Yikes... the shops had expanded. There bought a mango sundae there. Didn't buy anything as the prices are similar to what we can get at our place. Then we drop by Mango King Stall. Again it was "human mountain, human sea". We just wen and look see look see. The mango price are a bit higher than at the night market. But probably because these mangoes are fresh from the tree?

Next stop was Ah Mah's House. I have forgotten this place. Nice to see it again. Saw the "sticky balloon" that my teacher showed me. Mamarazzi bought a packet for me.

 I tried blowing the "balloon" in the car but it was pretty hard. Mamarazzi laughed. Next stop was the beach. Had Coconut water and fried Oysters. Taste so-so la. Weather was very hot. Beh tahan(Cannot stand it). Finished our drinks and food fast fast and cabut(went/run) into the car.

November 2019 Highlights

On 31st October 2019, Mamarazzi went to the grand opening of BookXcess at Sunsuria Forum Setia Alam. Why ? Because this outlet is pretty unique. It have a cave liked access. Inside, you can find almost everything an avid reader want. There  are plenty of corner and nooks for one to sit comfortably and read or do ones assignment. I didn't get to go because it was a schooling day.

She got a goodies bag because she was one of the first 100 customers there. Also won some vouchers from KLBAC games. 

Though I didn't get to go, but she bought me a yummy rainbow cake from Wolf Cafe and surprised me when she came to pick me up. 

On 2nd November 2019, there was no schooling. She finally brought me to BookXcess Sunsuria Forum.

 I fell in love with it.

I love the nooks and corner for me to sit and enjoy the books there.

Found some books that I like and brought it home. Guess how much we paid for this pile of books? We paid RM6.45 only... because we used up all the gift vouchers. 

Me and my books. 

My school report card day(PTA Day) was in November too. After picking up the report card I came home and helped Mamarazzi to prepare plant cutting for Bukit Jelutong Recycling Centre event . 

The next day we went to help out and distribute free plants at Bukit Jelutong Recycling Centre.

It was also Papa and Mamarazzi big day. I treat them to an expensive dinner. 

Also had a hard time choosing my costume. I was involved in a dance performance. How do I look in the costume? 

The BIG day finally arrived. 

Our team did pretty well. Teachers from other centres remarked that they didn't expect the performance need to be so perfectly synchronised. Our Centre also won the best art work made from recyclables. 

Before month end, we went to pick up some BBW preview passes . Thank you Uncle Andrew !

Our man's best friend was also discovered to be making some funny face.

Big Bad Wolf Books Sale @ MIECC 5th-16 Dec 2019- 2nd Round

We were crazy. We went to the Big Bad Wolf Books Sale AGAIN yesterday. Guess what time? It was witching hour. Crazy right? Who goes book shopping at 3am ? Well surprisingly there were quite a number of people there. BBW sale opens 24 hours a day till 16th DECEMBER 2019. Don't miss out!

What did we buy? Books of course! *LOL* . It was LOVELY.  Most of the books found at the Preview were gone. Now there are new titles on the floor. Keen to know what books were there yesterday? Here is the link to Mamarazzi's Facebook post. She had snap some photos of the books.

 These are some of the books we managed to find.

These books and the ones above are mine. Am so happy with the find. It was so nice to do midnight shopping there. The crowd was not as bad as during the preview day. No carts cluttering the aisle.

Mamarazi managed to buy a lot of children books for her friend.

For herself, she managed to find these. There are a new section called TREASURE ISLAND. Yup...books there are odd titles and each book cost RM6 ONLY. Not all are new books but there are some really good titles there. A real treasure island! Do drop by Treasure Island if you are there.

My most happy find is this. It's a curious box. There are bento set in it. A FARTING balloon. A comic book . And a toilet roll with graphic of human anatomy. It cost RM15 only!

 Mamarazzi said she regretted buying this for me as I kept making farting sound.

Payment counters was a breeze. The pretty Jie Jie there were very helpful and kind. As we were exiting BBW, I saw the message board. Hmm... my message during the preview day was gone. Thought want to leave another message but i saw stamps on the table. Mamarazzi said I can use it to stamp my books.

 Happily I managed to stamp some books before Mamarazzi dragged me away coz she said want to beat the morning traffic.

Oh ya.. We managed to redeem an awesome BBW note book and button badge . Totally in love with it.

As we were exiting the sale, a polite security kor kor asked to check our receipts. It was near the table where they sell button badges. Mamarazzi saw that i was eyeing the button badges and said i could choose 5 for my bag. Nice? I pin them on my new backpack.

She also bought a stationery set for me . Those who bought books from BBW with a minimum of RM150 in a single receipt is eligible to buy stationery set at RM9.90. Normal price rm28.90. And our receipt was definitely more than that.

First stop... to find breakfast. Went to Sri Petaling. There is a Nasi Lemak stall that sells very DELICIOUS nasi lemak at Jalan Radin Tengah, opposite Lucky Restaurant. We pack some home and dropped by a friend's home and pass her all the children books.

Next... to go home. I was supposed to be the navigator but Mamarazzi said halfway "waze" had gone to dreamland. Can't blame me as i was very sleepy leh. Sleepy but it was fun. I asked Mamarazzi to go again today but she said her feet "jellified" already ...scary to drive so far.

Her prized loot from this hunt was this. It's being turn into a drama . It's an awesome book according to Mamarazzi.

Check out the author's announcement and see the trailer.
