Pens from National Bookstore

Uploaded on Sunday 21 May 2017


Last Saturday, James and I went to SM City Cebu as a side trip after visiting Sharp Service Center for some errands. The skies were dark and was about to rain so we thought it would be best to stay in SM which was just infront of the Sharp Center.

Since National Bookstore, a school and office supply store is very near to the back entrance, we decided to go inside first. I was checking out some pens, needle, ball and brush pens alike. I started taking some colors that I like until I stumbled upon the expensive Zig Art and Graphic Twin set. I first checked the pricing. The pens I have in hand were mostly less than 50PHP and there's no way I am buying an expensive pen for calligraphy but then I can't get my eyes off the Zig set.

I remember those instagram posts of those I followed and they have these kinds of brush pens which definitely give a great effect and result in there calligraphy.

At first I walked away from it after seeing that it costs Php 1500. I have to let it go and just move on with those much cheaper pens. I approached my husband and told him about it and to my surprise, he allowed me to buy one set!

I can't explain how I felt so I just ran towards the Zig pen section and grabbed the brush set! I have to make sure I am pulling out the correct set. Boy, I am very excited to go to the cashier and let James pay for it immediately.

He also bought a book for himself, I on the other hand brought seven pens, a set of Zig Art and Graphic Twin Pen set and one Berkeley Water Color Pad!

I was like a little girl as I hold on to the paper bag which contains my new pens! I was performing cartwheels inside my head! Super thankful to my husband and he said a happy wife means a happy life!

Enjoy the video as I had taken shots and films of it as soon as we reached home.
