I know this isn’t book-related but since you guys don’t seem to mind whenever I put up random stuff here in the blog, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about MT Masking Tape Expo in Singapore. Besides, I’ve mentioned washi tape several times here and it looks like other people have enjoyed seeing my updates. I know I’m not the only book blogger or reader who has a washi tape collection. To those who don’t know what washi tape is, basically it’s masking tape printed with different designs, making it ideal for crafts. MT Masking Tape is a well-known washi tape brand and there is an ongoing expo (combination exhibit and pop-up store) here in Singapore. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there was such a thing as a washi tape expo. Friday was the opening day and I decided to drop by after work.
I spent quite a while browsing through all the rolls, trying to decide what to get. It was similar to how I usually am inside a bookstore. I resisted the urge to get all the designs that I wanted and ended up with the following stash:
And here are my MT collection as of the moment:
MT tapes are so cute, aren’t they? If you’re in Singapore, you should drop by and check out the expo. If you aren’t, I hope you still enjoyed going through this post. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
Edited to add (July 30, 2013): The Singapore limited edition designs have been restocked! I dropped by again to grab some of them. Each person can only purchase 3 limited edition rolls. The three that I got are: a Singapore Zoo-inspired design, Peranakan tiles, stars and moon (based on the Singapore flag). The roll on the right-most is a free one that I got from playing with the gacha gacha machines.
