Having your name engraved on something is always cooler than having it written, printed or painted, especially when it is artistically done. I maniacally like labelling my name on objects with black Sharpies for no explainable reason. So, when I received a Parker IM Gold Trim Brushed Metal Ballpoint pen with my name engraved on it, ah, I love it. Perhaps it’s because it makes the gift somewhat more personal. (Thank you, again.) Well, it is my first Parker by the way, although it’s a ballpoint. But it’s still a Parker. Dad always used a red fountain Parker for marking his students’ homework, which made his writing more artsy, so that made me want one when I was small. And I think the Parker Pen website is extremely cool. Upon exploring their very modern site (it’s a 120-year-old English company), I found out that the gold trimmings are 23-carat gold-plated! By being a nosey parker (pun intended), I found out that it might be worth 60MYR. (Fancy a 12,000 USD 18-carat solid gold Parker from Montgomery Pens?) Wow wow wow! My sister said, “Nice. If you’re broke, you know where to look.” Funny.
