Last evening’s Beijing Olympics opening was incredibly spectacular! Man, I was so completely blown away just watching everything on HD TV. China certainly did an awesome job and deserves all kudos really. It was well planned, perfectly executed and 100% kick@ss!!! The wire ‘levitation’ technology was breath-taking and anyone can easily see the national pride on each and every performer’s face. Sweet!
It’s National Day today but we missed this evening’s celebrations for NDP because we had our 2nd sneak preview of Ultimate Magic at The Arena, which actually went very well! The only small hiccup was that a lamp bulb blew at just before my stage appearance but the crew was extremely professional and the one hour non-stop illusion show went on nicely & the audience were just fabulous.
After the show, J C & I had streams of polite folks in the audience who came up to us for photos and more. Thank you so much for coming down to support local talent! *grin* Unfortunately, my back still hurts and the bruise on my legs are still aching but I managed okay tonight, and I’m really thankful my scrapes are healing up quickly.
Because of my bruises and bumps, I personally felt that I wasn’t as fast as I usually am but a magician who watched the show came up to us later and complimented us on our speed, amongst everything else… so I guess it was a really good show to the folks watching Woot!!! It was full house at The Arena yesterday, a good mix of locals, expats and tourists. So please grab your tickets from SISTIC while stocks last!
