Colleen Pencil

Adult colouring book is certainly getting a lot of hype recently, even the bookstore allocate a whole section for it. Did you let the hype influences you? Did you happened to have one too? Probably not just one huh? 😉 So, you picked up a colouring book but what coloured pencils you used to actually release your creativity and magically transformed them into pictures?

Speaking about coloured pencils, there is this one brand that topped my list since childhood – COLLEEN. I remembered, it was a gift from my cousins when i was like…uhhh…3? 5? It was a double-end coloured pencils and the colours were amazing! It was one of the best childhood memories.

I’ve been searching for this coloured pencils for awhile now and it can be found no more. At least not in Malaysia.

Thanks to the hype, i think. I’ve managed to purchase it in Malaysia recently. And here, i would like to introduce you to Colleen…
