Scribe Writing Essentials

by - March 10, 2014

In the time of tablets, emails, smartphones and basically anything to do with technology, writing someone with a pen and paper seems prehistoric, doesn't it? Let's face it, we all get hooked with our gadgets and it really can't be helped. I know I sure can't stay one day away from checking my blog, email, Facebook or Instagram. It's toxic, I know. -_- But I'm sure we're all guilty of this.

So in this day and age of everyone so engrossed with their techie stuff, I still strive to write on my journal at least once or twice a week. I make it to a point. Because like my belief in chivalry, I believe that writing is still not dead. :) I'm glad there's still thrives a store where one can find traditional reading and writing products and that's Scribe Writing Essentials.

Scribe Essentials now has 5 branches located in the following malls: Eastwood Mall, SM Aura Premier, SM Megamall Fashion Hall, Glorietta 5 and the new flagship store at the Shangri-La Plaza Mall, East Wing.

When I first encountered Scribe's store, I have to admit that they revived the stationery, cute notebooks and pens girl inside of me. I almost never go out of their store empty handed. How can I? When they provide only the best for their customers. Not to mention, they've been particularly successful in the fine writing and calligraphy business. Something that I've been wanting to try for awhile now. :)

Fortunately during their launch at Shang, I got to try it out for myself. But just a warning, I have a long way to go! More more practice! For a newbie though, I had fun! Jose Rizal levels! 

It's not so great! Please be nice! hahaha!

Who knew Jose Rizal had all the fun when it came to writing. I wish I was already born during that era. I would be a calligraphy expert! But since I was born in 1989, i'll just be fan of Scribe and will hopefully take Calligraphy class in the future. :)

Speaking of fan, as the brand steadily grew in the past years, so did its long list of clientele. Three loyal clients who became good friends of the brand are Fozzy Dayrit, Leigh Reyes and Architect Michael Manalo

Ambassadors with the owner Marian Yu-Ong :)

Three of them are Scribe's Ambassadors. :)

Along with its growth, Scribe now has more than 15 brands in its portfolio. It is the exclusive distributor of some of the world's most premium and sought-after fine writing and calligraphy brands such as Pelikan, Sailor, Platinum, TWSBI, J. Herbin, Brause and Speedball. And most recently, Cross and Lamy also joined in the roster of fine writing pens available in Scribe.

Aside from writing materials, they also have super cute notebooks from Daycraft that I'm wanting to get my hands on! I have a lot of notebooks already, but at the sight of a new one that has a cute design, I just keep wanting it as if I didn't have any notebooks stashed at home. >_<

As of now, I'm enjoying the Calligraphy set that I got to take home from the event. I even started writing on my journal already!:) Like I said before, more practice! Hehe!:)

To my fellow writers, let's relive our love for writing once again with a little help from Scribe!
