Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2012


How could I miss the bookworm event of the year? This year the BBW Book Sale was (is still ongoing actually) at the Mines Convention Center from 8-23 December. This year was special because they decided to open for 24 hours over the weekend.

Decided to head down there with the boys and my sister on the wee hours of Saturday. We left Damansara about 12.30am and headed down to Mines. We got to the vicinity less than an hour later. I was prepared for a lot of people but I didn’t expect to be stuck even before we entered the convention center.


It took us about one hour just to get to the parking. I decided to park inside and got a parking in the basement quite easily. The Convention center was huge! I mean, I saw photos on Facebook (like below) but It was seriously huge.

  • EVERYTHING in the store is on sale, at least 5%
  • These makeup items pictured are 30%-50% off. Lip glosses, the multi blush, etc. Other makeup items all 10% off

The sale will be until 13 June and applicable for everyone.
Members Special : On 21-23 May, all members get 10% off already discounted prices.

Note that the member’s special is calculated like this:

If the item RP is RM10 the discount is 50%,
The price will be RM 5 minus 10% member discount
TOTAL= RM 4.50

Not a total of 60% discount on the item. Remember this, because I did some miscalculation in the beginning. Also a tip, choose an outlet that is less crowded. I remember how packed it was at the Midvalley outlet during the last sale. I swear it was madness.

So tell about your haul :D


Decided to update with more price lists from readers :)

  • tea tree cover stick for RM16 (50% off) and pomegranate body spray for RM10 (70% off) – chloe
  • Tea Tree Facial Scrub = RM20 – @junw3n

Big Bad Wolf Book Sale at Amcorp Mall


The book sale of the year was back. The Big Bad Wolf store was having yet another massive book sale. I’ve heard really good things about the book sale early this year and so I was determined to come to this one. It was at Amcorp Mall – 3rd floor (where the cinema previously was).

Planned to go on Friday evening but I couldn’t get away early so decided to go this morning. Was hoping that it being a public holiday, most people would have balik kampung or be at the mosque. Heard “horror” stories about how packed it was on Friday so Sat morning was my best bet.
