Once upon a time, a girl bought 3 for the price of 2 Judith McNaught books. She bought 3 (obviously). She was never the same again after that incident. She would always bursting laughing out of the sudden to herself no matter what the time was; morning, afternoon, evening or midnight and even when only the owl was awake. She was clearly possessed by the book. What was worse was when she had finished the book. She went hysteric for more.
To make the story short I had to drive her to One Utama to buy her more Judith McNaught books. ;p Actually I was also dying to get my hands on Percy Jackson 4 and 5. Teehee :) We made a deal that I drive and she calls my mom for permission. Lucky for her she had the books that she's dying for at 3 for 2 offer. Mine wasn't. Who cares? As long as both of them are available I'm happier that the cow who jump over the moon. Mooooo...
I park my car at the roofless parking lot opposite the New Wing. The last time I park indoor it cost me RM9! NO WAY MAN! I'd rather buy myself a Pokemon manga which cost only RM6.50! Jeeezzz..
One of my favourite places :) It's comfy and there's a lot of book. Do you need any more reason? :)
I went straight to the teen fantasy section at the 2nd level which I knew so well while my sis went to the 3 for 2 section at the 1st level. I grab both of the Percy Jackson books and went on to search for other fantasy books to devote myself to.
So I went to level 1 again to browse the fantasy section. Unlike the teen fantasy section, most of the books there was unrecognizable except Narnia and Lord of the Ring. Which I already have. Hurmm.. So I browse there for about 2 hours. Wahhhh, so long ma... hehe.. Since I didn't know most of the writers I had to read each book synopsis at the back 1 by 1. After a while I chose 3 books but I couldn't decide which to pick so I just brought them along before I made my decision.
There was a table laid out for classic books. I had to say I have most of them which sadly only few had made it to my current reading list. I buy them because they're famous and they withstand the tide of time till today such as Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Frankenstein, Treasure Island, etc. In addition they're super cheap, RM9.90 per book. How can I resist the temptation?? I chose The Secret Garden :) I read it once, it was the librarys' and I like it really really much :) I just had to have the book!
I had a huge problem then in deciding which among the 3 should I pick. So I head over to the flat screen computer which runs the MPH online. I wanted to know more about the books as they were aliens to me. I was minding my own business when one of the employees ask me what was I looking for. I was quite shock. I mean it's different between an apparel store than a bookstore. You have a promoter at Dorothy Perkins but you don't have one at MPH. None of the employees bothers and stares at you at a bookstore. I like it that way better.
My first thought was okayyy... As expected as usual ;p I answered yes and it was actually a no answer, since the books that I was searching for was next to me. I thought he would leave me alone but he didn't. I made assumptions he looks like a newbie, you know how they can be so excited of customers and something to do before getting bored doing it and he was kinda cute in a friendly way. He help me to find the information regarding the books but it was to no avail. He admitted he didn't actually know how to find the information in other ways. Ahhhh, I was right about the newbie part. What a sheer genius I am ;p
Based on my instinct I decided to plunge in deeper with The Legend of Drizzt Book 1: Homeland. I had decided about the book at its original shelve when he suddenly came to me again -__________-" I thought it was best to do some background research on the books at the internet to avoid unnecessary spending. But he had to prove I'm wrong :/ So he went to promote that the books comes in a set. He showed me sets of Book 1-3, book 4-8, book 9-13. I was like 13 books for a series!!!!! :/ Gila Banyak! I can die man. He was so enthusiastic promoting the books that I didn't have the heart to not buy the book :/ One of my weakness I guess. But I did buy the book with hati yg terbuka ;D Due to the fact that I google a review on the book and they say it's good. So why not?
At last we paid for 4 books and my sis 6. I bought 2 Percy Jackson, The Legend of Drizzt Book 1: Homeland and The Secret Garden; and Ibah bought 6 Judith McNaught :) Yeah! We get what we came for :)
We were hungry and I wanted takoyaki. Yum Yum Yum! There's a takoyaki shop nearby but there's no Halal certificate so we went to Jusco to have them yummy round balls. They're made by Malay employees so rasa macam selamat untuk dimakan. We bought 1 set of ham and cheese takoyaki (gosh! I'm hungy again! ;p). We also bought varieties of sushi. Me love sushi! <3 class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(143, 66, 173); ">Teh Tarikand Ibah Teh O Ais.
After making my way out One Utama we stop by at Ibah's friend house, Sabrina at TTDI to give her Ibah's chemistry book. They took their time talking animatedly as they hadn't seen each other for a long time. With nothing to do I went to inspect my dearest Percy Jackson books. I wanted to unwrap them. Then I realized one of the cover looks familiar. Then I realized for a split second that I FREAKING already have that book! arghhhhhhhhhhh... Noooo...... It was volume 3 which I read last week. How can I forgot?!
We had to go back to MPH. We had to or I'll die of depression. I need to exchange it for book 5. Gosh, One Utama again -__________________-" Anything for my dearest Percy Jackson.
There, I was mortified that there's no Percy Jackson 5. S**t! D: I was soo unhappy. What can I do?? It's beyond my power. So I exchange it for The Legend of Drizzt Book 2: Exile. I hope the series is good. Sigh.
I wouldn't give up on my baby Percy Jackson 5 so I head off to the end of One Utama for Popular bookstore.Jauhnyeeee nk jln... Knowing myself I'll buy the book sooner or later. Better get it now.
It's the same case. Percy Jackson 5 was out of stock or maybe they're hiding it from me. Who knows? Dengki dowh!
I found Pendragon 10!
Soldiers of Halla
Okay, I don't even know what OZMG stands for ;p The book that I've waited for all my life, the last book to my ALL-TIME-FAVOURITE Pendragon series. I have it at lastttttt! It's like I found the last piece of a Pigsaw Puzzle! ;) You get what I mean. I can do a panda dance right there right then B)
On a side note:
At MPH, when I went to search for my sis and found her sitting at the vampire section. She was leaning against the window nest to the Darren Shan book shelve while reading a book. Thought she was reading Circue De Freak but she was reading a book on Robert Pattison -____________ -" What's with that Edward boy?? -______________-" I just don't get it.
Gosh! This is such a long post :)
Thanks for reading nevertheless.
Hope you enjoyed it!
