Book Sales! !

I've recently been to 2 book sales here in Kuching. I have to say the timing is just right. I mean with the Big Bad Wolf book sale coming up in Selangor, I'm just itching to go to some sort of book sale since I don't think I'll be able to just put everything aside and fly to Selangor just to go to that sale...

      The Book Lovers Carnival hosted by Second Time Around books at The Hills Shopping Mall sells 2nd hand books that are directly imported from USA.
 
      There's also a book clearance sale by Popular Bookstore at CityOne Megamall. Though I'm quite sure that all Kuchingites must have heard of these 2 book sales with all the advertising going on.... but for those who have not heard of the sales.. both events have already started and will end in early December.

      I feel that to get the most out of book sales, you need to have a little bit of luck or else you'll end up not finding books you're pleased with (that is only the case if you're picky when it comes to selecting books)

      Both sales are, in my opinion, great in their own ways.

Movie Magic

Although I'm super busy lately, I managed to squeeze some time for the 'Catching Fire' premiere, that is, today!!
 
     One word: AWESOME!!
 
     I find it so fascinating to watch Suzanne Collin's work of fiction come to live on the big screen. The movie, in my opinion, progresses very smoothly and the setting plus the new characters are just similar to what I've imagined while reading the book.
