MT tape expo @ Pavilion

πŸ™Œ banzai!! Hahaha
Now let's test my "tahan" skills πŸ’ͺ
The hanging washis!!!
So mesmerizing and seriously...felt like a waste hahaahahah πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (then again don't most decor feels like a waste sometimes? Haha sometimes I feel like so when I'm doing my wedding decor πŸ˜…)

They are just hanging!! Not even stuck to anything! Would be nice if they fall, I would gladly catch them like gems πŸ˜‚

Of course, if rain gems then I will catch gems over washi tapes! #practical #reality
Washi heavennnnnnn! Hahahaha
So so much tapes!
Though most of them are nothing new (unfortunately)

But the bright side of it, means I won't be spending much since ..nothing new ma πŸ˜›

Can't say the same for some of the people whom I saw there hahaha some are really new to this tape thing and well...welcome to the dark side πŸ˜‚
The first place that I attacked first was the "stick all you want with the washis provided" table.

Jengjengjeng.

Free washi. Who don't want?πŸ˜‚

I dam kiam ok. I even brought cards to roll some of the tapes to bring home πŸ˜… #auntieleveliao

Everyone was practically sticking on everything!

Water tumblr, phone case, books, keychain, car keys, spects. Just to name a few πŸ˜‚
Since no space around the wooden box with washis. Everyone just took whatever and plonked it in front of them.

Some actually just dragged the box nearer to them πŸ˜… thankfully...didn't see or hear any arguments or what la. Cause it was like war!

And it was just 10.30am.
The limited edition Malaysian tapes!

Cuteeee 😍
No brainer on which tape I bought hahaha wanted to buy summore but it was rm19 per pc! Whathe🐟

Told myself I shall just buy one. Like...that's a bowl of semi atas lunch man.

So one. Thankfully managed to stop at one Hahahahah πŸ˜‚ mind over heart.
Such pretty pretty pastels!!!!

Nope. Didn't buy also πŸ˜”
I mean how to settle for one la? When everything looked so pretty?

It's either all or none!

So none it is πŸ˜‚
Kids series!
So cute!

Seriously, just spot the hidden animals in the jigsaw puzzle tape! Isn't that cute??
Hello kitty series!
Love the one with the year but ah..as usual, anything with hello kitty is expensive.

The hello kitty tapes that I own are bought when there was a clearance. Prices was slashed and it was buy 1 free 1.

Damn good deal.
Casa series!

As you can see (I think) they are clearing these. Not sure changing of designs or cause hard to sell.

It's the bigger washis that are targeted for larger surfaces such as tables, chairs, cupboards (I washi-Ed one of ah pek's shelves hahaha he's still using!) and even walls and floors!

😁 I don't mind washi-ing a part of my wall but ah.. Haha wait till I have my own place

Some of them! 😁

Wanna choose also choose die you.
But prolly useful if you wanna decor some stuffs for events. Just stick only, and it's quite friendly cause it's easily removed and can be re-stick.

One of the thing that I like about washi tapes. Quality is spot on.
Chalk series tape for you to test!

I just had to ok?😝
Quite nice isn't it?

The label ones can be cut individually and used. I think wedding also can la. Maybe to label bottles or what not?

Overall they had a few new tapes actually, but I forgot to take photos of them πŸ˜… oops
The stamp!!
So cute. Really love the design with all the elements frm the limited Ed tape!

Yes, the sun bear, shuttlecock, hibiscus, the expo's pattern, wau (Malaysian kites) and..don't think they drew the last tape.

The last tape was a landscape water reflection. Not sure what this signifies....the KLCC fountain ka?
The "washi-ed" baskets for your shopping. Apparently flown in from Japan. Think they use it for every expo. Talk about recyling man ♻️

And the tapes damn tahan la means! 😳

Anyway, refused to hold on to one despite the staffs so kindly and attentively handed me one every time I walk pass.

Cause ah...that's how you end up buying more right?!

Cause instead of one hand, BOTH your hands are free. Free nvm, got space to put things.

Heck no!
#dangerousia
Snapped this cause there was this old couple (not that old la but maybe 50-60s?) in front of me choosing tapes and it's funny cause the husband was convincing the wife why they should buy so and so pattern πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

He was showing his phone case as well which he washi-Ed with the free washis!! Quite cute la πŸ˜‚
Sze too doing her thing during the workshop!

Since it's open air and I have nothing to do. So I just kepo stand there and watch la.

Ms.Er said she taught quite a lot. The only tip I listened on was that always find similar colour hues (same shade?) when sticking the washis on your TN.

Also, when packaging something, better to use a plain washi than a "noisy" washi tape.

πŸ˜‚ hard to listen la plus the organizers
were staring at me. Like why I no pay money but leeching there πŸ˜‚
Anyway, didn't join the workshop cause I thought 100rm was a bit steep. Ms.er did cause ms.ng and I bought a spot for her as her birthday present! 😁

Quite nice actually cause there was stamps, washis, freebies of like stubs, stickers and the likes for you to choose.

They even let you use the Polaroid to take photos so that you can journal! That film ah, 2.50 per pc ok. Hahaha

After all that, they even got 2 washi tapes to be brought home as door gift.

If you're a beginner, worth la.
The washis they get to use!

The one open for public is like one box only.

For the workshop they had 2 boxes and the tapes are slightly different. More varieties and some are more premium too πŸ˜‚ kept telling ms.er to stick more washis. Like stick to get the workshop's moneh worth πŸ˜‚ #kiamislikethisok
Sze too's work from the workshop!

Which ah..she ripped it apart after that 😳 cause she said it's not nice enough. Doesn't pass her standard.

Though it looks nice to me and everyone else (hahah the look of horror we had when she tore it was priceless. Esp the organizers faces hahahaha)

At that moment, I totally understood where she was coming from πŸ˜‚ this one artist/perfectionist disease. Can't be cured and if you have it, welcome. We same same gang πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŠπŸ™Œ
Taking photos at the workshop's table cause ..might as well la πŸ˜‚

Seriously, the organizers were watching out for me cause they wanna make sure I don't end up using the washis from the workshop table πŸ˜‚

Sibeh strict but I guess it's only fair since the ppl who joined the workshop paid for it.
Gachapon! 😁

Rm9 per coin.
Though the price is okay but I thought it was a bit steep la.

Cause no.1 the tapes are smaller? Unless the total meter length is the same as the normal size ones.

No.2 the tapes are not even special? It's actually normal design tapes that you can buy.

The only extra is, there is a bonus limited Ed tape in some balls. So if you kena means rm9 = 2 tapes (one the normal one, another is the limited Ed)
The limited washi tape designs that you can get from the gachapon!

And the good part is, you get to choose which design you want for the limited Ed if you win la.

Which...I did.
Well, technically I win but the tape isn't mine cause it's ms.er's coin hahahahaπŸ˜‚

How I won?

I just looked to see if the next ball had the winning paper inside πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ the winning paper inside is the one u exchange it for the limited Ed tape!
😳😳😳
Sibeh packed man.

Lucky I was there early if not I would never stand a chance now. I mean how the heck are u gonna squeeze through that!?
Since draw liao, used the opportunity to take photos only la.

You can check #mtexkl on insta if you wanna see more photos! Though it's just repetitive photos of tapes la πŸ˜›

Or go and see the real thing at pavilion. Now till 7th August! 😁
How was the whole expo?

It was okay. But I was reallllly expecting more. This was a bit like a ...washi tape flea market? Hahaha not so of an expo.

Like a pop up I would say.

Cause I have googled past expos at Japan. It's crazy! They washi tape walls and floors and even the beetle and a bic🚲 don't think I saw wrongly la.

Even the expo at SG looked nicer.

But, that being said, I think this brought awareness and so much more ppl now know this exists πŸ˜‚

Good luck people haha
Oh ya, my TN page filled with the free washis πŸ˜‚

Anyway, spent a total of rm53.
Ms.ng who didn't go so she shopped via watsapped, rm7+ hahaha πŸ˜‚
Ms.er ...3 digit. So let's not go there πŸ˜‚

Anyway, some ppl really spent like crazy. The person in front of me spent like 700rm?!?!

😳😳😳

Im sure if I add all my tapes up, I have spent way more than that but I have never ever spent 700 on one bill for tapes.

Actually I think the highest I went was 120 πŸ˜… and that's scary enough for me.
