SFPL Pen Meet, Jan’15

SFPL-Jan15-inks

Time flies and it was time for yet another pen meet, this time the first one of the year Twenty Fifteen! We the Singapore Fountain Pens Lovers Facebook group administrators got together to organize this pen meet, and I grabbed the chance to do some filming on site. The pen meet was located at a very beautiful condominium, so it seemed to make everyone really happy! I’ll show you the pictures from now, and do watch out for the video at…

#pendelight Cross Townsend Garnet

This is a Cross Townsend Garnet fountain pen. Cross is a fountain pen brand by the A.T.

I love Japanese pens and would probably never prevent myself from trying out a couple of them. I like it! It’s blue, clear, and shiny. It looks modern and clean, and the blue is a really soothing-looking blue. It evokes memories of sapphires and butterflies and water. The Sailor Procolor comes…

Greetings, Fountain Pen Enthusiasts!

A Montblanc 146P, Pilot Deluxe, Pilot Custom Heritage 92, oh my!

Hello everyone! My name is Prem, and thanks to Maybelline’s generous proposal of collaboration, I will henceforth be contributing to this blog, along with Thomas. I decided to make my first post an introductory one of sorts. I first got into fountain pens last year, when I was looking for a new medium to sketch with. I mostly used pencils, and had only dabbled with ballpoints and gel pens, neither of which I liked using. Enter the fountain pen. Not…
