Billy Bookcase

Another reason to be smiling today. I found out that the IKEA billy bookcase price is reduced to RM169 from RM185! To book lovers, this simple means - new case = lots of new shelves = lots and lots of new books! Yay!
Do you know that to date there's more than 41 million Billy Bookcases sold worldwide? Wow! A simple case.
What does your bookcase say about you? - an article from TIMES about the Billy bookcase and to my wonder, what we choose to display or have on our shelves speaks about personalities. Ye ke? I'm a bit shy to post picture of my bookcases - some are quite organized, some remained untouched for yonks of years (terselit katak mati pon tak tau), and some are just upside down (esp with the kids shelves)!
All in all, I love the sight of my bookcases in my living room, study room and kids room. In fact, the cases are the centrepiece item in my living room, far more valuable than the big tv or a 20k art painting! (errr no, I don't have one).

And here's a pic of my ultimate dream wish to have bookcases!


  1. woowww... kongsi lah ngan we all gambar ur bookcase tu.. boleh buat inspirasi. mine kat rumah punya... he..he.. buat letak buku2 budak yang jarang2 dibuka espc yg grolier tu... (oopppsss, main beli je time tu). yang buku2 lain2 tu, merata rumah ada, kat dlm bilik, rak kat tepi tangga and almost everywhere,..

  2. Along... nanti I susun baik2 dulu yek. Better still, mai lar rumah the next time ur in K.L. Lama tak sembang sembang wei... bley ajak angah, uchu and ateh also..time for a reunion!

  3. LJ....tu yg i hairan tu....20K art painting...kat mana u sorok? tak nampak pun...hehhe
