Stabilo point88 mini sporty colors

Hey now, call it a mini, cos you know that you will… Other than a pen addict, I am a colour addict as well, and nothing can be more fulfilling than to receive a sponsorship from Stabilo in the form of COLOURFUL PENS. Hey now, look up! You wouldn’t want to miss this set of Stabilo point88 mini goodies! I’ve done a review of the Stabilo point88 before right here, so you already know my opinion on it way before…

My top 10 pens of 2013

On December 31, 2012, I have done up a list of my top 10 pens of the year which you can read here. I will do a similar list for 2013, except that I did not manage to get it out in time to post it within 2013 itself, so it ended up being posted this year! The 2013 list will take a slightly different angle from the previous one. Pen acquisition has not been superfluous, which is good news…

From the Audience: Monteverde Pens

One of my readers wrote to me to tell me about her Monteverde pens. Here’s what she said: I have been using fountain pens all my life. This year in May I received a Monteverde Prima for my birthday (brown swirl). Even though I normally like thinner pens this has an excellent ink flow and is fun to write with. When I went online to register it @ Monteverdepens.com – I saw that they had a clear barreled Monteverde Arista…

Back with a review: AOPO Signature Pen 1.0mm

Hey dear readers, I am back on track with blogging! Sorry I have been busy for the past few weeks (yes, in my “Hiatus” post I wrote “two weeks or so” but it ended up almost 1 month, oops!), but I would like to give a huge THANK YOU! to all my readers who have been constantly checking back on my blog. I seemed to have also gained a couple of new readers in the process. Hmm, maybe I should…

Pilot V5 Hi-Tecpoint

  Today’s review is a new look at an old pen. And it’s a pen that I am sure most of you have seen before: the Pilot V5 Hi-tecpoint! It is my typical school pen which I always used when I was still schooling. And by that I mean -ALWAYS-. I used this pen for taking down notes, writing on slips of paper to pass around behind the teacher’s back, draw on my friends’ arms for fun, doodling during boring…

Stabilo: Pen 68, point 88 and pointVisco pens

The review I am going to do today is of 3 types of pens from: This is my very first review of Stabilo products, so let’s rejoice! It means that I am scrutinizing more stationery brands for review on my blog, and I do hope that this would help you guys out there who are looking for an opinion on pens! Yesterday during lunch, I just decided to make a trip down to a shopping mall near my office to…

kikki.k Bebis and Rainbow Stitch gel pens

Hello readers, I’m finally back after one week of absence from here. What have I been doing so far? Well, after my Vietnam trip that lasted from Tuesday to Friday last week, I had a bit of rest on Saturday, which unfortunately was morphed into a horror of a food poisoning on Sunday. Complete with diarrhoea, vomitting, and fever. I slept most of the Sunday away but I feel better today. Still having some cramps and diarrhoea, but I’ve seen…

Unknown Wooden fountain pen and Wooden ball point pen

The review today will be about the only two wooden pens that I currently own. One of them is a fountain pen of an unknown brand, and the other one is a ball point souvenir pen from Chamonix Mont Blanc (French Alps, not the German luxury brand), both of which my boyfriend has gifted me last year. As you can guess, both pens are very precious to me! I love how they look against the grass and under the sunlight.…

kikki.k Kontor Fountain pen and Silver Flower Gel pen

Every new pen I buy seems to get better. This week sees the National Stationery Day in the U.K. (24 April, hey it’s today!), and oh how envious I am! I’m not from the U.K. so it is a pity that I can’t join in the fun! But I guess I can still do it my own way by having a new review, this time of two pens! If you’re reading this from the U.K. please show this day some…

ZIG Clean Color TC-6000

For those of you who had gone through your adolescent years in Singapore, you are highly likely to have come across one of these markers before:     Don’t they look lovely in the myriad of colours? I first started using these during my secondary school days (2001-2004) and they were incredibly popular in a convent school where the girls loved to decorate their notes, write postcards to each other, or simply using them for notation or highlighting purposes. The…
