Ok, so here’s the end picture, with ALL the cookbooks I bought from BBW
Just just just managed to fit ALL the books and me into the camera screen. Hehe…
(If every year I’m going to buy the cookbooks like that from BBW, I think I need a new bookshelf after next year. LOL )
Oh I tell you, it’s definitely an addiction.
I confess, last week when I said it was the last round, secretly inside me, I knew it wasn’t going to be. Sometime midweek, I wanted to go again cause it’s the last round and Maybe, JUST maybe, I can find nice stuffs.
*Like wtf, 47 books, later, I think it’s not enough and I wanna go get more*
But it’s not about getting more books, it’s about finding gems.
Luckily BBW only happens once a freaking year. *terribly broke*
Round 3 damage : 23 books, RM 295 (including 3 books bought for fellow bloggers)
3rd time around, it’s quite different.
First, every thing was in order you probably only need to spend 2 hours there to get what you need. (what you THOUGHT you need)
Second, it’s the excitement of finding books that you did not see in the first round.
Third, it’s the moment when you see the ONE AND ONLY book in the stash of mess, and it’s a gem! I can say, third time around, if you see the books in my stash that you like, you might not be able to find it again…. But then again, some books were sold out during the first week itself.
It’s all about LUCK!
10 minutes into the hall, I got 6 books, ready to be deposited into the book deposits section. River Cafe, Top Chef, Nobu Cookbook and Bruce’s Cookbook. All 4 of these books probably only end up being the price of ONE book.
Oh, please allow me to say, this is the most expensive book from my purchases in Big Bad Wolf. RM 45!!! why so expensive
hard cover, very big, lots of Gordon Ramsay’s michelin stared dish. Ok la RM 45, who am I kidding!!
Did I say it was an addiction ?
No, it’s an obsession!!!!!!
There are lots of these little penguin books, it may not seem interesting at first, but out of curiosity (actually I was just waiting for them to top up books so I end up reading these books… ) i picked up a few of these, small compact, informative and funny.. only RM 5 each.
First book I saw, Julia Child’s Mastering the art of French Cooking. LIKE SERIOUSLY!!! Ok la, I have it already but I’m so kind I quickly messaged a friend and ask if he wants the book cause he is a cookbook junkie JUST LIKE ME! My brother said “u sure u won’t buy the same book u bought 2 weeks ago ?? U remember what books u bought meh??”
These books are for fellow blogger friends whom they couldn’t find the book when they were there at BBW
Please thank me, I’m ever so awesome!
HAHAHA ok la.. kidding.
