Starting A Collection




Back in the Philippines I have tried to collect and use some pens for a collection. However I was never serious about it because of some circumstances mainly on the cost side. But then I am here in Saudi Arabia and a few walks away from our house are some stores that carry and sell those pens. So I paid a visit a couple of nights ago and I have bought some "made in China" original pens! Ironic isn't it? But yes they have brands but Chinese intended not to engrave or put it in prints. How about the quality? They are all fine. And mind you much cheaper than the signature brands!

So the signature or more popular brands are the photos below. Parker, Inoxcrom and I might buy Sheaffer and others in the future. For now I shall settle for Parker. The legend!








P. S....

I have found this "antique" Parker which is a gift from Keilco way back in 2007. And I am still using it!

Fishing - It's More Fun In Dammam!

QIPP Pinoy Team did it again! last Thursday night and we had so much fun in Dammam Cornich catching fish and actually grilling it..then had some picnic with rice and vegetables - all Pinoy style food in the land of the king and oil!..

And I think this is our life in the face of unknown fears and distant family - creating friendships and lasting memories that once we are having fun in this country that is often mistakenly as boring and no fun will be generated..well we are wrong and thanks God for that!
