ALL YOU NEED IS A PEN

Going old school has always been my thing and my Moleskine became my weapon on choice ever since I got hold of one a couple of years ago. One thing I love about it is its ruggedness and portability. A bit pricey for a notebook but totally worth the money.

(Today’s purchase - a new notebook and yes, it aint Moleskine. I discovered Monologue just now, a bit cheaper and oh, it has more pages than my old moleskine haha and a copy of Canteen/Issue four.)

It’s also a great venue to jot down ideas, an instant sketch pad or record something interesting that I’ve read or heard and yes, you can carry it around whether at a café on a lazy weekend, on a train or in an airplane.

I also got myself a copy of Canteen, a literary magazine loaded with poetry, art and photography designed to look more like a fine art book than a dusty journal – such a steal for $10. I’m totally loving it!

Oh no, you switched! The best thing abut Moleskine is that it lies flat on any page and never flips.

'Canteen' looks interesting; where can I find it?

No, just for this one. Will definitely switch back to Moleskine soon – Buddha’s just trying out new stuff .

Re Canteen, Booksale Greenbelt 1. Try checking out the magazine shop in landmark Makati too and booksale cinema square.
