My Pilot Flipbook Contest

Back during my school days (please don't ask what year because we have a lot of counting to do), I have some trusted brands of school supplies that I always tell my Nanay to buy.

From my notebooks to my school bag and markers to my pens, I have preferred brands because of their durability and dependability. Coming from a family of six children, we don't have the luxury to buy school items every month. I've been taught to be practical at an early age, and beside, I was a working student then so I see to it that what we buy is worth every cent we spent because they are hard-earned.

One brand I still use until today is Pilot ballpen. I'm sure I am not the only one who share the same sentiments towards this trusted name. Pilot has been with me for such a long time that I have probably written kilometers of words and drawings through the years.

This ballpen has been useful in my work as a writer and in my hobby like drawing and sketching just about anything. It has been a tool during serious office stuff and creative moments while relaxing at home.
