I love notebooks. I cannot resists stepping into a book store without browsing through the notebooks shelves. 70% of those time I worked by just to browse, will end me up stepping out with one new notebook in my shopping bag. This obsession of mine still exists, but now unless I can find one that is simpler and more functional than the one I’m using now, my wallet is practically safe.

This red book is my planner, idea pad, work notebook and my everyday must-bring-along thing in my bag.Found this zen looking notebook at Popular bookstore on 12 Feb 2010 (I dated my first one so I remember the date) and after examining it closer, I bought it. This dainty little bookmark that comes with the notebook tells it all.

I like to scribble while I’m on the go, and I hates it when my notebook cannot open flat without weighing it down with some object while it rest on my table. So these few simple diagrams got me into buying my very first Zequenz notebook.

Having used it for 3 months now, its just half filled with scribbles. But already I’m buying myself more to stock up, in case Popular should one day stop selling it, which I doubt now! This is love can! How can don’t sell it? I shall let the following three photos do the selling to you…

It IS love isn’t it?

Before I discover Zequenz, I was using a cheapo Popular green notebook which was to replace my black moleskin. Moleskin was love for me, till I discovered Zequenz.

To show why my love has changed, I’m going to show a very simple comparison between my ex-moleskin with my Zequenz…

Let the Zequenz Vs Moleskin showdown begin!!!

Closer look at these two notebooks, you’ll discover how their binding and finishing differs.

Let’s give the two of them a little massage… let’s fold them half…

The Moleskin in half…

vs the Zequenz in half…

Let’s do it one more time, now comparing both notebooks of the same size…

Moleskin Vs Zequenz…

Beautiful curve isn’t it? <3! Lastly I did the squeeze test on both... moleskin squeeze strength was at power level of 7/10.

While the squeeze on Zequenz was effortless…

I’m so in love with Zequenz that I had to give them to my team! I hope they’ll <3 the Zequenz notebook as much as I love mine!

I got my Zequenz notebooks from Popular and Write Right (also under Popular). Price ranges from $5 to $12 i think! Can’t remember! But I know its a fraction of what you’ll pay for the Moleskin. If you don’t need the skin, you can get Zequenz. :P
