{Giveaway inside!} Jin's Vacation: Shopping in Singapore (washi tape)

So now that y'all have seen pictures of my Singapore vacation, it's time to show you my loot, or at least part of, what I bought while overseas.

It is pretty much a well-known fact that Singapore is a shopping haven but still I did not expect to blow a huge chunk of my shopping budget within the first few days of our arrival. Who knew that MT Masking Tape would hold an exhibition there?! It was futile to resist the new washi tape so I caved and bought a lot. Here's what I got:


At every expo, MT Masking Tape would release special Limited Edition washi tapes just for the occasion. These 5 designs were the Limited Editions for the Singapore expo.



As soon as I saw the new MT for Kids tapes, I just had to have them. The rolls are smaller than the regular ones but the designs are super adorable! Who doesn't love flashcard-washi tape? Certainly not me! I *heart* them!


I also bought these vintage-looking MT tapes. One is patterned with maps while the others are from the new MT Encyclopedia line.


I love the newsprint and the tag tape and oh! that postage stamp tape is gorgeous!


I'm not sure how I am going to use the French message washi tape yet but it is the leftmost roll in the picture below:


These bear and rabbit tapes are amongst my favorites. I bought the rabbit tape from the expo but the bear tape was sold out. Ivy Toh, a Singapore reader of this blog, surprised me with it when she brought me out on a night tour of the island. THANK YOU, IVY!


Speaking of Ivy, she also brought me to Paper Market in Raffles City. I was surprised to see such a big scrapbooking store in Singapore. They don't allow photos to be taken inside the store but they okay'ed a picture of their window display. Oh well.


Popular is a major bookstore in Singapore and it was at their Bras Basah Complex location that Hubby spotted these decorative tape pens.


I had never seen these before so I bought a few to play with. It turns out that they are retractable and refillable, roller decorative tape dispensers. It works like a correction tape pen but it dispenses a patterned tape instead.


Some other random stuff that I bought in Singapore include a panda tote bag for Panda Girl (my 7-year old daughter), a panda drawstring bag for my Instax camera, and mustache paperclips. I picked up the panda paper lantern from the origami store in the Tokyo-Narita airport.


Oh! I almost forgot to mention these two Singapore-themed scrapbook kits that my 10-year old twins really wanted. I don't scrap but the girls insisted that they need them for when they start scrapbooking about this vacation.


One more thing, we also chanced upon the Sticky Singapore store while shopping at the Central Mall. They make and sell the cutest candies!


The folks there were making candies while we were there so I took this clip for you:




Now that you have seen my loot, you must know that you were on my mind while I was shopping in Singapore. In other words, I picked up a few extras to share with you!

Surprise! It's a giveaway!


These are the prizes for this giveaway:

Two of you will win a MT canvas bag with 1 roll of MT for Kids washi tape each.



Two of you will win a PLUS Decorative Tape pen each.


and one of you will win a pack of Panda Rock candy!


To enter, all you have to do is to post a comment below and name one place that we visited while we were in Singapore! If you had seen my vacation photos, this should be no problem for you. :-)

One entry per person please.

The giveaway starts now and will end at 11:59pm PST, August 31. FIVE winners will be randomly picked and announced on Monday, September 2.

Please note that this is a BLOG-ONLY giveaway and your comment(s) on my Facebook page will not count as an entry.

That's all and so..... GOOD LUCK!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. I loved seeing your pics. Every place you went looked amazing! You're a great photographer, too! I loved the panda drink and bun at Mama Panda, but I guess my favorite place you visited would be a toss up between River Safari and S.E.A. (I absolutely love aquariums.)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh my! The places you have been!!! I loved the pictures of the Gardens by the Bay , but the Aquarium with that giant viewing window was wonderful and oh my the Washi tape extravaganza!

  61. The garden by the bay has to top my list of favorites! What a beautiful place! And that inside waterfall? How gorgeous is that? I net it is more beautiful to be inside the dome than what it looks

    You are so lucky, one of my dream destinations is Asia, I would love to go see my great grandparents homeland.

    Btw, those tape runners remind me of my school days because they were sold at the Chinese mass stores in Peru, we all had them and they were so much fun! I also had the ones that had smells, bubble gum was my favorite one.

    Thank you for this giveaway Jin! You are always so generous with your followers.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I really enjoyed your pictures of the aquarium. I try to visit aquariums when I'm in a city that has one. It's interesting to compare them. So when/where is that MT masking tape going to be available? I really liked the vintage.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow, thanks for sharing your vacation with your blog fans, family and friends. I really enjoyed veiwing your pictures and reaing your posts. it cant believe the skydeck really looks like a ship. You are inspiring and I am so lucky to have found you.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Jin, happy you went on family vacations and more happy because you are back.
    you went to the River Safari, by the way i still wonder how they do that cappucinno panda foam...

    ReplyDelete
  71. OMG! I really enjoyed your Worlds Largest Aquarium photos. We have Sea World here in Orlando and I have been to the Boston Aquarium but I bet nothing can compare to the Worlds Largest! I am just amazed by the sea and all it holds is still a mystery. As for the Washi...drool! Look at all that yumminess! I can't wait till it is available here in the US.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Jin, thanks for taking us along with you on your amazing vacation. Singapore looks like a wonderful place. Makes me wish I traveled more. My uncle and aunt just left Thailand and went back to Okinawa and I have yet to visit them at either place. *sigh* Everywhere you went was wonderful but I am partial to hitting up zoos wherever we go, so I would love to see the Singapore Zoological Garden.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Jin, I must say you made your vacation a learning experience for all of us. I will probably NEVER get to go to any of these exotic places,but feel like I was there in spirit with all the wonderful pictures you took. My favorite was the pics of the mega structures and the "floating" ship on top of the buildings. Thank you for letting "us" into your family vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  74. What an amazing adventure! The places that I loved the pics most of were SEA Aquarium, the Panda Forest and Safari. And the Washi tape.....LOVE! (as a girl who went to France in 1993 during high school, I can give you a few ideas of how to use it ;-) What a great experience for your girls! Thank you for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  75. What a great experience for your family. I sure would like to visit the Singapore Zoological Garden! So beautiful.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  77. Mama Panda kitchen seemed to be adorable! I hope the bad was as tasty as it was cute.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Well the one that stuck with me was that observation deck that looked like a ship on top of the hotel! I would have been terrified up there. I guess that is what happens when one is deathly afraid of heights though. Of course I have to have a daredevil daughter who loves to do anything that involves being up high in the air! My youngest daughter, my husband and I let her have at it while we all stay with our feet planted firmly on terra firma! Thank you so much for the chance to win some awesome goodies!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What an amazing trip for your family!! I would LOVE for my children to have that kind of experience. :)

    I very much enjoyed all the photos. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    The places you visited are: River Safari (beautiful panadas), Mama Panda Kitchen (love the chairs!), S.E.A. (amazing... I love dolphins. And I would LOVE to be in one of those hotel rooms!!!) Gardens by the Bay (I can see why your children wouldn't want to skip out on that one!!) the Marina Bay Sands hotel and casino (I am still in awe of that structural engineering!!), the Zoological Garden, and Chinatown!! Oh, and lets not forget, the MT Masking Expo!! Woo Hoo!! A trip you are all certain never to forget!!

    Sounds, and looks, like you had a wonderful time shopping too. :) Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    ReplyDelete
  80. The Marina Bay Sands resort stuck out for me because of the shape and how it looked like a ship. What a neat vacation you guys were able to take - thanks for sharing the pictures with us and this awesome giveaway too :-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wow, that was a great trip you took with your family. I would like to take my boys one day (we are Chinese). Love the pic of Chinatown and the big skyscraper in the background. Looks like the Chinatown we have in NY with tall buildings in the back. Thanks for the chance.

  86. What a fun trip! I've loved seeing the photos of the places you went and of course all the great things you saw and bought! I think my favorite would have to be the S.E.A. Aquarium, though! My son loves fish so we love going to new aquariums and the chance to visit the World's largest aquarium would be fantastic! I can only imagine how grand it is to stand in front of that huge acrylic viewing panel! What an awesome experience! Thank you for sharing it all with your blog readers.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I would have loved seeing all the washi tape. It would be hard to decide what to get. Sounds like a great vacation. I think it helps the kids to understand the country that mom grew up in. It helped me understand my mom better when I went to Denmark with her.
    Thanks Alma

    ReplyDelete
  120. The Singapore Zoo looked so cool. Panda, panda. It would have reminded me of you, if I had gone there myself! Your pictures opened my eyes about Singapore. Looks like a great trip!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I have enjoyed seeing all of your photos during your trip and think it's really cool how you wanted to give your daughters an appreciation of their heritage. You went to so many amazing places but I will mention just one...the Singapore Zoological Garden where you saw the first polar bear born in the tropics. I live in San Diego and I love to visit the polar bears at the zoo!

  123. WOW! Marina Bay Sands Resort and Skypark looks as if it was an awesome experience

    ReplyDelete
  124. Wow! Your trip to Singapore sounds like it was a blast! It's definitely made my bucket list of places I would like to visit, What a beautiful island!! The River Safari would definitely be on my list of places to visit, I love Panda's just like your daughter does! When I lived in San Diego, they had a Panda breeding project. They also put webcams in mom's den as well as out in the open enclosure, I watched them a lot. I couldn't believe how tiny their babies are at birth. I would also have to go to the S.E.A. Aquarium. I'm sure your daughter's had a wonderful and educational (even if they didn't realize it) visit.
    Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us and thank you again for giving us a chance to win some goodies from Singapore!!

  128. It looks like you found a few treasures while shopping and thank you for thinking of us. Your trip sounded like fun from beginning to end and I especially loved seeing Jai Jai and the other panda (sorry I don't remember the name). The panda restaurant was awesome too. Being a huge fan of underwater adventures, I pick the aquarium as my favorite. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

  135. Hi Jin!

    I have been following your site for a long time now, but this is my first post. I absolutely LOVE all of your tutorials and detailed photos- it was a major influence in my decision to purchase my Silhouette and I use your site regularly for ideas and walkthroughs. So, PLEASE, do not stop what you are doing! :)

    I am (newly) obsessed with washi tape and I couldn't resist the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

    I am very jealous that you were able to visit the Singapore Zoological Garden. We have visited several Zooligical (and similar) gardens in the Northwest US and I have yet to be disappointed, so I can only imagine how wonderful it was in person. :) It seems like you had a good time.

  136. I love the pictures of the River Safari. :)

  137. Your family visited the Skypark! Loved how small the "trees" looked and the skyline from that high lookout location - bet the price was WELL worth it!!

    One place you visited was Marina Bay Sands resort and Skypark, where it looks like a ship placed on top of the hotel. Crazy!!!
    I love the Washi Tape - how will you be able to use it though? I would have to hoard it, lol!

  163. Jin, you are so sweet for thinking of us!! I remember the places you went to, but the ones that stick out most in my mind are the food places; oh my gosh, you guys ate at a Panda restaurant! - loved it and made me hungry too. I also knew that you would end up at a live panda something - and you did - you went to the River Safari - great picture of the panda, BTW! And all the gardens you visited were beautiful - there's nothing in the US like that (I don't think so anyway; besides San Francisco) So happy for you and your family - looks like you had sooo much fun! Thanks for sharing your memories and your washi tape!!

    Hugs,

    Carmen L
