Hello, I’m back! I missed the last Sunday Inkings as I was still overseas on my European holiday trip. It was a nice and very rushed and packed itinerary, and I visited many nice places which I would love to go back to! (But no pen shops!) I returned to Singapore with one day to rest before I went back to work, but on that day of rest, I had fever and a horribly painful throat. I went to see…

Check out the write-up by Inky Passion on the event. Here is this week’s instalment of Sunday Inkings, grouped by category: Giveaway: Pen Chalet is…
