Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2012 @ Mines Convention Centre (MIECC)

The Big Bad Wolf Books (BBW), world’s biggest book sale has returned!

In 2011 they did it inside UPM, some kinda convention hall, and it was pretty big. Check out my 2011 loots HERE.

But this year, BBW is operating from 7-23 December at the Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre.

On it’s opening day, Friday, they were going for 63-hours non-stop, opened 24 hours til Sunday, 9.30PM.

It was then I was surprised that so many Malaysians, or probably KLians, actually read books because the road to Mines Convention Centre was pretty jammed along the Sungei Besi highway.

Operation hour then resumed at 9AM on weekdays. Surprisingly, they continued with the 24 hours non-stop operation hour on 14-16 December.

That’s when I paid a visit to the Big Bad Wolf Sale. Went with my family on Saturday night, arrived Mines slightly before 10PM.

I on the other hand, I don’t really read books. I visit for the sake of bringing my dad over because he reads a lot, religions and new age, and self help to be precise.

On the contrary from what I heard last week, the road was pretty smooth from South City Plaza and there were ample of parking space at the convention centre.


*Before and after*

Grabbed an empty box as I entered the entrance, just simply pick up books, and that’s my loots, I mean, my father’s loots of the night.

Tiger Asian Music Festival 2011 @ Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC)

Tiger Beer presented the biggest Asian music festival ever that has happened in Malaysia..

On 30th April 2011, the Asian Music Festival 2011 was held at the Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC) and had pulled a strong 20,000 crowd to the event!

Thanks to GAB and G2, I was able to cover and enjoy the 12-hour concert standing right in front of the stage, standing very close to the artistes when they walked upfront the stage..

Long story short, let’s head to the main agenda of the day..

Local English band Rosevelt did the opening for Asian Music Festival 2011..Then Malaysian Will Ng came on stage for the second act..

I was right on time for 24 Herbs (Yah Sei Mei), the high-prolific rap group (after LMF) from Hong Kong was on stage to rock the house down..


*24 Herbs from Hong Kong*

24 Herbs gave a good performance with 6 songs, including Do or Die, Wonderland featuring ManHand, and ended with “Hu Ge”..


*Local Chinese rock band, dayDream*

dayDream was quite okay, performed 6 songs including covering 2 songs, one of MayDay’s and another Linkin Park’s “In The End”..


*Suki Low featuring Shawn Lee and Dennis Lau*

Suki Low made her appearance a moment to be remembered with a cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework”..She has grown so much since the One In A Million and she can definitely go further..

She continued to do an unplugged cover of “Born This Way” (Lady Gaga) on the keyboard featuring beatboxer Shawn Lee and violinist Dennis Lau..


*Namcha from Thailand*

Next up was Namcha from Thailand..Although I hardly understood Thai except for “sawadee kap”, her performance was pretty energetic and the tune and rhythm of the songs were quite easy to blend in, fun-happy-go-lucky type..

I really had fun with her songs and eventually followed her on Twitter (@namcha_tea) right there and then :P

Lots of photos ahead! Get ready to load!

The tickets are priced at RM128 and RM248 for Rock Zone..

A little bit of photos here where I’d attended the press conference for the local artistes at The Tavern, GAB..

The official launch of Asian Music Festival kickstarted when the big screen is touched and clips and shots of artistes is being announced..

Part of the Malaysian artistes including Manhand, Suki, Jess Lee, and dayDream who will be performing at the Asian Music Festival alongside international acts like FAMA, 24 Herbs, Edison Chen, Se7en, and Olivia Ong, etc..

Let’s cheers for the event!


*Suki, winner of One In A Million*

I bet most people who saw Suki won the singing competition would love to see how she has grown up as a singer in terms of her songs and singing style..
