Sure. Scribe Writing Essentials, with branches in many of the major malls. Stocks Pelikan, Sailor, Omas, Kaweco, etc. and lots of inks. We also have a very active fountain pen group at www.fpn-p.org.

depends on what you are looking for
Quiapo area for the cheap heros, westeast stationery shop is what is called
Rustan's group owns MB and Visconti, both "booths" can be found in Makati City, Glorietta Mall, MB alone is in Shangri-la Mall in Mandaluyong City (ink are hard to acquire, especially the LE inks by MB)
Scribe Writing Essentials has Pelikan, Sailor, TWSBI, Platinum, and Kaweco as of recent news some branches now also carry Visconti pens most likely it's Eastwood Branch J. Herbin inks
Major National Bookstore branches has, Sheaffer, Cross, Lamy, Faber-Castell and Parker (Faber-Castell only no GvFC)
our distributor for Pilot currently has a small FP stock on hand but 78G, Birdie, Metropolitan, Prera, Capless series are currently available the distributor is Cosmos Bazar yes... thats the correct spelling for it I think found in Binondo area of Manila near the distributor of Lamy held by Times Trading
hope this helps
if your going to stay for a bit longer you may want to hook up with the local pen group called FPN-Philippines, FPN-P for short

Pengrafik isnt much of a place than it is an office that normally deals with online transaction same could be the said like pens-galore, and everything calligraphy
the guy who owns Pengrafik is our distributor for Montegrappa but its on order by order basis
Bexley's and Diamine are also available but are only again order by order basis for the Bexley pens if you can't attend a monthly pen meet
well to be honest our distributor for Pilot only accepted the FPs late last year, else we only got the most "basic" series which only composed of birdies, 78Gs and Metropolitan..., Capless and Prera were the newest additions
ohh and Iroshizuku for almost 17-20 USD depending on the exchange rate

i see.  thank you for the explanation.  yeah, sounds like Scribe would be the best choice for me, since i do prefer to be at a shop and look through many choices of pens.  but Iro ink for US$20? that's very reasonable.
