My Shopping Experience at Big Bad Wolf Books Sale (2nd and 3rd Round) 2016

Guess all of you know why I have been silent these two weeks.

Yup...what else. busy busy busy with Big Bad Wolf Sale and some other stuffs. Today is the final day. After this, will have to "puasa"(fasting) books till the next BBW.

From past experience, one round of BBWKL is never enough. This is because BBW will replenish new stocks whenever stocks finished.



We went to 2nd round of BBW on Tuesday.. the 5th or 6th day of the sale if you are counting Preview Day. As expected, plenty of new books . But unfortunately, this also means no more old stocks.

Saw the big stacks of Garfield box set was replaced by this Sesame Street box set. Ten hardcover books for RM30 only. Didn't buy. Something that she regretted later.



Mamarazzi was hoping that she can get some more of these bricks books . Super worth it.  RM15 for this set  which include a book about rescue vehicles and also bricks that can be use to build 3 vehicles and a figurine.


 She bought one each on preview day. Came home discovered that it's of good quality. Wanted to buy more as gifts. But by the 2nd round...no more liao.

Haiz...when will she learn ...when in doubt,  just grab and buy. Do not hesitate when comes to BBW. Sure people will grab all.


I got a new hair cut to go for Wolf hunting.  The Wolf hunter look. 

Unfortunately, the Barber a.k.a. Mamarazzi  only have L-Licence. Wanted to "write" the alphabet "J" but somehow it look more like "T" instead. Hahahaha.... I am "Mr T " of the A-Team said mamarazzi. Sorry ah...gua dunno who or what is A-Team leh.



This round Mamarazzi very happy with me. Each year, Mamarazzi hunt books for me at BBW. But this time , thanks to Mr Wolf for providing trolley, I went hunting for myself.

I have come a long way from my 1st BBW in 2009 (http://www.smallkucing.com/2009/05/big-bad-wolf-books-sale-dataran-hamodal.html) I was just over 1 year old back then .


Now, I can hunt for myself.  I went to Mamarazzi with a trolley full of books, but kena she censored. I had to return some of the books back to their respective tables as she claims the books are too young or too old for me.

Mamarazzi also very happy coz I also hunt for books to give to the Red Reader Hood . A charity event that is supported by BBW.




 However, I managed to get these pass her. 




I "die die" want to buy these two books though she claims it's too old for me. Too many words. I won. 






She got me this world Map. Ah...now I know where Auntie Yoong lives. 

 Mamarazzi also happy coz she managed to collect BBW bookmarks. Yup...each year she look forward to their bookmarks.

Mamarazzi only got 2 books for herself. The Young Sherlock is for a friend. 

 
Mamarazzi very bad leh. She said since I insist wanna buy so many books, I had to carry them to the car. Aiyoyo.......wait up!!!


 That night, I did some "smuggling". Excited to flip through my pile of books. 


 We went Wolf hunting for the last round of this year yesterday. Once again, a trolley for me and a trolley for Mamarazzi.

 Mamarazzi was sad to see some books have been vandalised. 


 Toys missing for books. Books missing from box set. Why? Why? 


On our 2nd visit, Mamarazzi overheard a boy chided his brother/friend. He admonished him for taking toys from books which have toys in it. Mamarazzi didn't see any stealing . Otherwise she would have hand the boys over to be devour by the Wolf. 

If she caught me doing that, I would kena upside down from her. 


 Anyway, on a happier note. She found more good stuffs there. This 24 cute  pencils with cute erasers plus a book for RM20 only. This time she didn't hesitated. Straight away grabbed and posted in FB. Friend saw and whatsapps her.


 It must have been 3rd time lucky. She found Hagar The Horrible for herself. 


I wanted Wimpy Kid. But it was still in box set form . Mamarazzi bumped into Mr Wolf and he said to ask me Whatsapps him the Wimpy Kids books that I am looking for. He would help me to find.
Wah..true to his word. Not long after that, he called and said found the 3 books that I wanted. Thank you very much Mr Wolf!



Yesterday, I managed to find quite a number of books for myself. When I finished hunting, Mamarazzi was still hunting for her books. Yup.. I told mamarazzi this 3rd round is for her to hunt books for herself instead for me.

I parked my cart at the side of the Cafe and waited for Mamarazzi with Papa. I discovered that they have parking warden . They would write on a piece of paper the time that I park my cart there. Maximum parking time is 1 hour. The cart would be towed away after 1 hour.  What a clever idea. Hmm... come to think of it, lucky they didn't charge parking fees. *LOL* I wanna work there when I grow up.


These are some of her haul and mine . Managed to grab the last Sesame Street box set. Haiz... the other day got plenty, she didn't take. Now hunted up and down for it. Managed to find 3 sets but not in good condition due to vandals. 

Ooh ya...one sad news. Saw BBW facebook and they announced that they will no longer be going to other states . What a sad sad day. On consolation, ones can still get affordable priced books from BookXcess Online. 

Bye, BBW. Till we meet again next year.

    1. For Mamarazzi, price of books in Msia is high when compared to income. Hence, she is very hsppy whenever there are book fair that can offer 75-95% discount for books from the original price. Glad BBW is the 1st who started doing this.now other company also follow suit.

      More people can afford to read

  21. I tot I can get some Chinese cook books this time but unfortunately the collection didn't really impressed me. Chinese reading books for kid also more suitable for young adult because those books are full of words >_<
    But the English books for kids are a lot and I got quite a few for Sam.
