What’s in my shopping bag? Usually the answer would be books but this weekend, I have washi tapes instead!
There’s an ongoing MT Store event in Raffles City, organized in honor of SG50. I discovered the wonder that is a washi tape expo back in 2013 when I visited the MT Expo Singapore. I think that was when I started to become a washi tape addict (my current stash can be viewed here). How can I resist when there are so many cute designs out there? So it’s not surprising that I’ve dropped by the MT store several times since it opened the other day. Some pics of the event:
For every event or expo that MT organizes, they created limited edition designs that are only available during those events. They’re usually inspired by the country where the event is held and these tapes are the first to go because of course, washi collectors love these special designs. For this event, there were the Singapore limited edition designs:
Four Singapore limited edition designs, my favorite is the one at the bottom of the flyer, which is called “multiculturalism”. Plus four tapes inspired by M. Sasek’s kiddie travel books: This Is London, This Is Rome, This Is Paris and This Is New York. How can I resist tapes based on books? And I did mention a few months back that I wanted to collect M. Sasek’s books. Aside from these eight tapes, I also grabbed a few more to send/give to friends who also love washi.
Hope you guys enjoyed this little break from book-related posts! 😀 Feel free to let me know which design is the cutest for you. Also, if you have an Instagram account, please like my posts about this event (my Instagram username is chachickenpie) because the ones that have the most likes will get a prize. I’m not feeling very hopeful because some accounts have thousands of followers but let’s see how it goes!
