I bought more notebooks today, this time from an ‘everything’ shop. If you’re ever in Singapore, pay a visit to one of our housing estates (any one will do, we mostly look the same) and you’ll find at least one of these ‘everything’ shops. They sell everything, and I mean everything. Cotton buds to dig stuff out of your ears, check! Cheap shampoo made in Thailand, check! Hardware tools, drills, hammers, nails, check! LED lights and torches of every size, check! Some of the bigger ones, like the one near my office, have a stationery section where one can find really cheap pens and notebooks of rather dubious origin.
Which leads me to my buys today:
All four are rather cheap, ranging from S$1.50 to $2.90. The paper inside is nothing special, rather cheap, yellowish, thin and feels porous. that’s not dubious. What’s dubious is…
I was planning to use this in the office, looks like now I have to remember to wash my hands very thoroughly after every use.
