Yea yea yea...what's so great about BBWBS?...guess only those who are excited about books will know. Come on.. fiction books are being sold mostly around RM8 per copy. That's like 75%-95% discount off the market price leh.
Those who are holding BB1M vouchers are sure lucky as BBWBS will be there before the vouchers expire and yes, BBWBS do accept BB1M vouchers.
Ahem ahem....don't forget to whatapps or FB me ya if you spotted any books that I might like......Thank you, Terima kasih , 谢谢 and धन्यवाद,.
So....do get ready...mark your calender...submit Annual Leave form...get ready a pair of comfortable shoe(you'll need it!) and most important of all...bring a trolley bag. No kidding leh. Don't be shy. Spare your arms from all the heavy lifting. Trolley bag is the way to go when you wanna "borong" . If you really cannot carry the heavy boxes, do not hesitate to "catch" any of the BBWBS staffs to help you to carry them to your car. From my past experience, the BBWBS Teams are very helpful guys and gals.
That's all for now...happy book hunting!

Are you a parent searching for a primary school for your child? Are you faced with the dilemma of which school to send your child to? Are you thinking of sending your child to Chinese school but you don’t speak Chinese at home? Now you don’t have to turn to forums or blogs for answers to your dilemma.
You can find the answers right here in this book. From choosing preschools to choosing primary schools. You will receive practical tips and know what to expect on orientation day and first day of school. Primary School Registration Procedures, School syllabus, Homework, Exams, Tuition, Dealing With Teachers. All this and more are covered in this book including How to Handle Differences In Parenting Styles with your spouse and the challenges you will face raising kids in the digital age.
Written by a parent for parents, everything you need to know about the challenges you will face as a parent to a primary school student, the next most important parenting stage you will face is here
For me this have been a valuable and insightful book as being a Banana Mom myself, I was undecided on which school to put my boy in when he starts primary one.
Naturally I would want him to learn an extra language but will he be able to cope with all the workload that Chinese school are famous for? Apart from that there are a whole load of pros and cons flying around.
From what I read here, Chinese Primary school is not that scary if there are support from the school side and the parents side.
I find that the part about school orientation, examination and tuition have been very helpful. Chapter 5 was very "scary" for me as there was a load of pros and cons listed there ...some of which I have not even thought of .
But overall, it had helped me . At least get a rough picture of what to expect should my son goes to Chinese Primary school.
Thank you very much to the author, Mimi Koay

Synopsis from www.goodreads.com
Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: Her beauty and charm. Her fiance, Dex. Her lifelong best friend, Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls off their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal.
Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply--and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey toward redemption, forgiveness, and true love
It was an "ok" sort of read for me. I have expected more of this book as I have heard good things about this author.
However, I was disappointed that 2/3 of the book have been about how self-centered the heroine, Darcy, is. I think that was a bit too much.
It was quite unbelievable based on this shallow character who was 5months pregnant being able to attract her Gynae to falls for her. It was a bit far fetch to me even in a chit lit.
Hence am giving this two stars out of 5 stars

Synopsis by www.goodreads.com
Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan.
Rachel has always been the consummate good girl---until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party.
That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from.
As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness.
Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend
My Comments :
This have been an easy book to read.
Although Rachel was the third party in the relationship, but I find that I feel sorry for her. It was obvious that Darcy and Dex were not suited and it was such a pity that Dex took his own sweet time to decide on who he want to be with. I don't really like Dex.
Only one part which I find, not convincing is that how Rachel and Dex end up in bed. There was not much mentioned about the attraction between the two of them.
Overall I love this book because of Rachel. The character was very vivid and the crisis she encountered felt very real.
