Porsche Design Pure Black by Pelikan

Pure Black or All Black, they are the same. It is just a play of word. The look, or rather the color, of the fountain pen is the same. It is black, matt black and not glossy black.
The other brands are starting to catch up with Parker Premium Black Edition. They might not the same, but like Pilot Capless All Black, Parker Premium Black Edition is still on the Top of all the Black Edition.

Caran d'Ache Buddha Limited Edition

These Buddha pictures were taken last year when my family visited Hong Kong.
After 20 mins of cable car ride, we got to the foot of the Buddha statute. Today is Vesak day (韦塞节, 佛诞) in Singapore, but not in Hong Kong or other part of Asia.

I wish all our Buddhist friend a Happy Vesak Day.

Vesak day is a Buddhist holiday commemorating the birth, enlightenment and death of the historical Shakyamuni Gautam Buddha. 

As there are diverse Buddhist cultures around the world, Vesak day is celebrated on different days by different traditions. Chinese Mahayana Buddhist celebrates the Vesak Day on the 8th day of the 4th lunar month while the Theravada Buddhist celebrates Vesak on the on the full moon Uposatha day.

The Vesak reminded me of a Caran d'Ache fountain pen launched in 2007. It is the Caran d'Ache Buhhda Limited Edition.

Namiki Emporer Night Line

This is one of maki-e pens that didn't get much attention. This is likely due to the fact that most maki-e collectors and users prefer traditional design and theme as compare comptemory design. I think the artisan Yumi-san has capture the beauty of the night excellently using the raden maki-e technique.

It  make me feel sun had completed its day tour, and a dark curtain fell over the land. The twinkling spotlights adorning the velvet texture of the night.
