Early days.

I started accumulating fountain pens in 2005. Before then I was used to carrying any number of Pilot G-tec C3s, Uniball Signos and the occasional Artline. Even now, when I carry a minimum of five fountain pens everyday, I still peek at the student pen section at National Bookstore, wondering if maybe I should get a Pilot Better Retractable or a ringtop M-G highlighter (yes, ballpoints and highlighters are now available as ringtops).

I found an old notebook from 2005 and, looking at my scribbles, I remember to be grateful for the extra drops of beauty that fountain pens bring to my life.
