The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale was back in town again from 5th to 16th December 2014. Due to the overwhelming crowd going to the book sale, the organizers decided to have the book sale open for 24 hours non-stop! This year’s book sale was also held at Malaysia International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC) at MINES Resort City, Seri Kembangan, Selangor. Why the hoards of people going there every year?? Well, the book sale offers huge discounts on books ranging from 75% to 95% off normal retail prices. I even went there twice (once with my kids) just to be able to browse the entire hall. Here are some pics I took at the book sale. Looking forward to the next one. 🙂
A catchy and colourful arch at the entrance to the hall…
At the entrance, there was also a counter selling Big Bad Wolf merchandise…
My first trip there was after midnight. Although not crowded, there were quite a lot of people there, even kids. I guess they were like me, wanting to avoid the mad rush during the day.
Another view of the hall… The air conditioning was very strong, hence the lady here wearing a sweater and a scarf.
Met a friendly staff who happens to know me from Muar when I performed at a wedding function. He’s a college student doing part time work at the book sale.
They also have a food section on the first floor of the hall, with stalls ranging from popular fast foods like Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, KFC etc to the local food like nasi lemak, mix rice and noodles etc. This pic is from my second trip (day time) where all the stalls were open.
Here is an ariel view from the first floor during my second trip there.
Another shot of the hall at the book sale. Thanks to my Olympus E-M5 and 12mm focal length with my 12-40mm lens, I was able to take this wide shot. 🙂
After the payment counters and on the way out of the hall, there were also collectible posters on sale.
Tin-plated signs were also sold at the book sale, although most were not discounted like the books.
