The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Preview 2014


Guess everyone know already ya...yesterday we went for the Big Bad Wolf Books Preview thanks to the Preview Pass by The Wolf Team.

I was super excited. Skipped tuition for this. Muhahahaha....arrived there 9.30am and there was already a long queue. Luckily Auntie Azila "chupped" a place for us. 

Well, actually no need to rush la coz once the door opened, everyone can go in liao. Venue SO BIG!

First mission...check out the Playland upstairs. I was the number 0000001 customer to the playland. The Jie Jie there still recognise  me leh. Papa pulak "buka kedai" at the food court. Mamarazzi starts her book hunting


Gosh! This year sooooo many box sets. Got the Hunger Games, Wimpy Kid, Maze Runner, Millennium Trilogy...

Charlaine Harris, Agatha Christie, Marry Higgins, Inkheart, James Patterson to name a few....there were loads and loads of other box sets.

 
They have changed the layout of the place ...now what used to be the Exit last year ...is the Entrance.

Not only that. The way they displayed the books also different. If you are following their Facebook or saw in newspaper the books that they have advertised and now you wanna look for those books...well...it's easy. Just head over to the tables with the RED SIGN "AA"(As advertised)". The books are placed there.

And if you still can't find the book you wanted...just ask any staffs. They went and extra mile for Mamarazzi.

Mamarazzi wanted to find this book which she saw in their website. Cari - Cari can't find...so she asked a staff. He didn't know where it is located but he run to ask his colleague and they helped Mamarazzi  to find the book.

Finding that book, Mamarazzi continued shopping. After what seems to be very long period...Mamarazzi arrived at the section where that staff is located. He recognised Mamarazzi and politely enquired whether she had found the book she was looking for. Wow! How nice!



Mamarazzi said must thank the two Bosses of Big Bad Wolf Books. Without them, guess we won't get so many good books at such a low price. It seems that after they started BBW, now a few more company are lowering their price and follow BBW footsteps. 

Yes! Please do bring more affordable books for us. Who says Malaysian doesn't read?We do read...just that sometimes we can't afford to buy expensive books. 

Yes, there are many libraries but for some personal reason, we would wanna have books that we want to read within our reach any time of the day, right?

Thank you to Andrew and Jacqueline for the event! And for training your staffs to be so helpful and polite.

And Thank You to The Wolf Team for making this shopping experience the most pleasant ever



Mamarazzi noted that there are Bicycle in display at the middles of the hall. Hmmm...there seems to be some contest going on but she was too busy eyeing the books to find out. If you are there, maybe you can try your luck


I think people who love Hello Kitty will go nuts coz there was quite a huge section devoted for Hello Kitty Fans. It's located at Children book section. Under the Mezzanine floor.


Graphic novel also have good selection

Loads and loads of kids books....got loads of picture books.

For more photos of what Mamarazzi saw there please heads over to our Facebook at   www.facebook.com/smallkucingdotcom

First of all....sorry ya...mamarazzi didn't not snap photo of the Non-fic, baking/cooking books, Self help, Business ,Malay books and Chinese books section...Yup you heard right...they have one table for Chinese books too!. Soooooo "baaaaad" *evil grinz*

There were just way too many books for her to snap photos. You'll just have to go to their https://www.facebook.com/bbwbooks for the selection or better still just go and see for yourself.

 
This year BBW have a very good idea wor. they hired Clowns to walk around the venue and entertain young customers


As usual, there is a storage area for you to store the boxes of books that you wanna buy while you go hunting for more.

 
For those who is undecided what book they wanna buy and want to sort their books, they can do so at the area under the escalator. They have reserved a sorting area for customers there.

 
There was a magician too. Certainly helpful to customers who bring along their kids. You know la...kids where can sit still while you shop punya...sure wanna run here and there. With Clowns giving them balloons and stuffs...of course kids will play with it. The Mom and Dad can shop in peace...at least for awhile lah.

Or else can try like mamarazzi la...dump me into Playland. On and off go upstairs to check on me. Kira as near free babysitting service leh...Mamarazzi enjoys herself shopping while I enjoyed myself playing....But kesian the Kor Kor and Jie Jie there la. I must have been like Denice The Menace there.

Mamarazzi bumped into Mr Wolf upstairs. He belanja us this Sausage wrapped in Egg from MarvellousEgg.co. Super yummy leh.





This year not only the books selection are good but food selection also very good! There was Mixed rice, nasi lemak, asam laksa, cendol, RT Pastry was there and so was Baskin Robbins, A&W, KFC, Pizza Hut, Ice Cream in a pot ....and many more.

Papa said to ask The Wolf how much is the stall rental there. Maybe can rent a space and open food stall joint venture with Auntie CC for trengganu food. Sell lemang kijal, triangle ketupat, sata, keropok lekor and nasi dagang .

Then I can go playland for two weeks lo!

Apa macam? If we open stall there, you will come support ka?




The one I love the most is Papa John Pizza. For RM7 , we got a personal pan pizza with a soft drink / mineral water.Bought one for lunch.

Errr... they should also say Refuel here & Continue the Book Hunt and/or Playland leh....LOL...

Before we left, Mamarazzi grabbed one more Papa John's Pizza for me . Yum... Mamarazzi shopped from 9.45am(yup they opened early) till 6pm.....and me play from 10am to 6pm....Syok to the max leh.

This year memanglah the BADDEST Big Bad Wolf Books Sale EVER! Overheard at the sale....there were customers that flew from the East Malaysia for this sale leh!

Come...let's join us for second round !

The Big Bad Wolf Books Sale is open for public.
