MT Expo is finally here in Malaysia and its first pop-up store is now operating at centre court, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and I finally managed to visit the expo with my girl friend Peiyue last night! I have not visit any MT Expo before this and this is pretty much exciting for me as I love collecting masking tapes ever since I started on journalling.
|So pretty and colorful!|
The 25 metre height and 21 metre long masking tapes installation is plain stunning
|The expo will be held from 27th July till 7th August, 10a.m.-10p.m.|
MT is the pioneer of Japanese washi paper tape making company which produced by a 100 years old company namely Kamoi Kakoshi. The company specializes in making manufacturing masking tapes for various application purposes including industrial and decorative. If you're a fan of journalling and handcrafts, MT tapes is like the Prada of masking tapes as they are special, unique, and can be somewhat expensive. Yet, collectors from all over the world are going crazy collecting MT tapes whenever there are new collections launched.
After trying MT tapes, I find that its quality unique comparing with other masking tapes brands. It's special Japanese washi tapes is strong yet thin with fantastic adhesive power but can be removed easily without leaving any residue on surface and can be tear by hand. Sounds amazing isn't? I guess the beauty of MT tapes has planted deep roots in the heart of its users.
If you search the hashtag #MTMaskingTapes you will not believe the patterns and usage of beautiful MT tapes as it can stick to any surface, make decorating anything in your life easy and beautiful. I guess that's the beauty of decorative masking tapes, decorating your life in a colourful and creative way.

And what makes this MT Expo Kuala Lumpur special are these:
|MT x Malaysia Limited Edition Tapes|
6 designs in total: hibiscus, malaya sun bear, badminton, landscape water reflection, wau and pentagon, these are the limited edition tapes of this Malaysia mt expo and I've bought the wau and hibiscus where Peiyue bought the sun bear tapes. We're suckers for limited edition stuff lol. Since these are limited edition tapes, only 3 pieces per design/per person are allowed for purchase. I heard that the stock of wau design left one last box.
Before we head to the "Free-To-Try" station, we decided to pay for our purchase just in case we got too carried away (which indeed we were hogging the station till 10p.m. trying the tapes and decorate them on our journals lolololol)
|This is absurd lol.|
