Home TRAVELING Outing A Date With Big Bad Wolf

~A Letter To Penang Folks~

Dear Parents in Penang,

Watch out! The Big Bad Wolf is in town!!

If your children enjoy simple, classical story of The Three Little Pigs, I bet they are going to be thrilled to 'meet' The Big Bad Wolf at Penang Times Square!
School holidays has just began and it's time to plan out great activities for kids. If you claim reading is not in your genes,  let's stop blaming yours and mine! Imagine if you can spend hundreds over dollars in a single shopping trip at Toy R' Us, then The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale certainly costs less for more. This is a special edition kind of book sale in Penang.

An outing of a few hours can perhaps spark the interest to read in the little souls. Immersing in heaps of books. Tons of them for grab from fictions, science discovery, activity books to encyclopedias of many varieties for children to teenage. Whilst adults are pampered with art & craft, architecture & design, cookery, self-help, travel, sport to stacks of novels (in case you're wondering what are the good stuff for parents). We spent ONLY RM119 for 20 good books of both hardcover and paperback!
Dr Seuss’s Beginner Book - Come Over To My House at RM5 (Amazon sells over US$20!).

Only RM6 for an awesome, simple justification.

For baker wannabes, great ideas and tips – RM12.

The exhibition hall is located on ground floor - New Wing next to Entertainment City, opposite Roti Bakar. Not a super size (compares to the last one in KL) but they have a customer service counter where you can deposit your unpaid books if they were too heavy to tug. Stroller is allowed. For parents with toddlers, back carrier is a good option. Otherwise, hang out at a small corner before cashier counters (meant for folks to decide on their books before purchasing) while you and your other half can take turn to browse.

Hurry, make a date with The Big Bad Wolf before the good titles (at affordable price) are taken and gone! Put up your 'Kiasu' spirit this time :)

Date: 22 to 31 March 2013.
Time: 9 am through 9 pm.
Venue: Penang Times Square, Jalan Dato’ Keramat, George Town.
(Outdoor parking bays adjacent to the fountains are the best for family with young kids).
GPS Coordinates: 5.41275,100.325237

Momma to Austin

p.s. If you always encounter problem to get a good Christmas gift, I think book is a great idea!
