My First Bento Box!

In all my hours and hours of searching for things to do in Tokyo and Taipei, I came across a lot of things Bento related.  There's a lot of blogs all about kawaii (cute) kid bentos.  And with E starting school in a few months, I thought it would be neat to send her to school with a cute bento box every now and then...and I already did some shopping :D  While she was out on a bike ride with dad today, I put a quick one together for her lunch, my first time making one!  I bought a Hello Kitty bento kit so it made it pretty easy.  It came with rice molds, nori punchers and a template.  For Hello Kitty and her friends, I used sticky rice, nori (seaweed), turkey and salami.  Then I just added some strawberries and edamame in the box.  She was so excited to see this box on the table when she got back!  Needless to say, I'm sure I'll be coming back from my trip with lots of bento tools!

MT Factory Tour and Expo 2012

I'm so excited for my trip to Taiwan and Japan next month!  I've been searching for places to see and where to go shopping.  Last week I found out MT is doing a Factory Tour the week I am in Japan!  So I signed up for the tour, but apparently it is a lottery system, so I don't know yet if I will actually get to go on it.  I was completely elated when I found out today that there will be an MT Expo in Taipei while I'm there, and I will definitely be going!

While on the subject of masking tape, there's a few things I am hoping to find on my trip!  There's a masking tape printer, Coharu, that I would love to get!  It's a tiny compact one and so cute!

Coharu is made by King Jim.  MT also teamed up with King Jim and made Tepra Pro.

I am also hoping to get some MT Wall Tape!  I would love to be able to decorate my office with this!
