Big Bad Wolf Box Sale @ Starling Mall (10th-20th May 2018)

My first word on that morning was "Who Won?". Yes, the night before when I dozed off the result was still not out yet. Heard the result of the  election only came out around 4a.m. or 5a.m.

Mamarazzi said "Go back to sleep . It is a public holiday today."


That was how we ended up at BBW Box Sale.Many people balik kampung (gone back hometown) for election and many are still glued to the television for the swearing in ceremony.... so  should be not many people at the sale, right?

OMG! So early already got long queue  ah? BBW sure have many fans.



 Open sesame!



One thing that you need to know about box sales is that the books are remainders from previous sale.

Some of it may not be at tip-top condition.It may be dusty and have some wear and tear but if you have the patience you will find some lovely books.

Books were flying off the tables as eager shoppers spots books that they wanted.


This year choice were not as good as last year.But it is better that the years before. There are plenty of books to choose from but you need time to go through it.


For me its easy. I immediately zoom into the children books section where I bumped into one of my girlfriend classmate. Got myself a trolley full of books. Then Mamarazzi proceed to the counter to purchase a box.

Yes after all it's a box sale, right? We need to buy an empty box/boxes and fill it with books. Yup its not a per book sale . It more like a book buffet where we can fill the box with as many books as we want (provided the box can close properly) and bring it home.

This is our boxful of books

Full to the max. Wanna see my loot?

Jeng! Jeng! Jeng!

and more


and more


We did a good job. We managed to squeeze in 70 books in to the RM99.90 box. That mean is less than RM1.50 per book

So guys head on to BBW Box Sale @ Starling Mall for some good bargains. Its on from now to 20th May. Open from 10 am - 10pm daily.

    OMG I laughed so hard when I heard the soundtrack to your video... but you should probably do your videos in landscape, not portrait mode.

    In response to your query on my post, the clay cups are destroyed aer one use. Clay to clay. And then again moulded into something else by the innovative potters.

  20. Now we have won the photo contest which was unexpected. Even the guy who posed with me actually bumped into me there. We ended up sharing the box for our books and snapped a photo on our way out. Now have to share the prize. Dunno what will the prize be.

  21. I read the reviews complaining about the condition of books, decided not to go.

    Oh well, have a lot of unread ones around the house.
