The Magic Pilgrim is back…

HELLO WORLD!!!!! Namaste! Bonjour! Kuzu zangpo! Aloha! Assalamou Alykoum! Ciao! Tsonga! 

These are just a handful of greetings I’d learnt during my 9 non-stop months of constant traveling for a book project with the BFF; we certainly had many adventures together – some funny, others nerve-wrecking, but what doesn’t kill you certainly makes you stronger (like learning never to store your trusty laptop with all your written drafts in your check-in luggage in Madagascar).

Pam & I really both missed our loved ones in Singapore, it’s not easy when people you care about are miles away, so I’m truly glad to be finally back HOME because truly, there’s just no other place quite like it 🙂

Reflectively, I know I’ve certainly changed a lot during the time away from home. It’s been an insightful inner journey for me too, not just a physical one. The girl whose blog you’re reading, is no longer the same person who left 9 months ago. I am grateful for the many “teachers” I’ve met along the way, who have so generously taught me in their own ways, how to open my heart and live… not just to merely exist.

Our book chronicals the adventures of two BFFs (Best Friends Forever) comes out next year just before Christmas, so do look out for it 🙂 International literary giant, Marshall Cavendish International (Asia), is our publisher.

Honestly, I’m really excited because ever since I was a child, I’d dreamt of being a writer… much like one of my favorite women authors Anais Nin, who cleverly stated that “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.”

So like everything else that I’m passionate about in my life, this Libra girl is going to make sure she does her very best and balances everything on her plate well. And geez, is it one big heavy plate!

Coming back to my 2nd home, the Concept:Magic studio, was comforting despite already knowing what’s in store for me for the next quarter and a half 🙂 I’d just touched down yesterday in Changi International Airport, and this morning already saw me engaging in intensive rehearsals for…

*brace yourselves*

…Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde!!!!

Yes, my stage partner J C Sum & I with our team will be flying to Paris next week for the TV taping of the popular French magic gala show, which broadcasts in all French speaking countries and then some. Our episode screens on New Year’s Eve, and those with cable in Singapore can also tune in to watch it on TV5 Monde!

It certainly is a great honor, and I’m deeply grateful and humbled to be one half of the performing team that can make Singapore proud since this is the first time the producers of this long-running hit magic television show has arranged for Singaporean local talent over! Truly, I hope our country will have the opportunity to have more homegrown magic stars over in the near future… We’re really much more than just a little red dot 😉

Anyway, do stay tuned to our blogs, ‘cos J C & I have more super exciting news to share with all of y’all very soon. There’s some truly cool magic projects we have that once again, we really hope to infuse more positive power to our local performing community and empower more up-and-coming magicians/ enthusiasts.

Ta for now, more later!

Back and so ready to rock, roll, teleport and then some…

Eve of our 8th mega illusion, The Aerial Exit!

Hey folks 🙂

It’s been extremely crazy and hectic for all of us at Concept:Magic, with gigs after gigs and intensive rehearsals slotted in… It’s quite the miracle that I manage to have proper meals still *grin* I actually came back after midnight because it was waaaaaay past 11PM when we were done with the last show of the day.

I recently went to my dear friend, Irene Ang’s newest restaurant at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road called Qafé. It’s brilliant that she’s helping young entrepreneurs! The BFF & I really enjoyed ourselves – I recommend you check it out, really. It’s a nice little dinner place to go with friends 🙂

Irene’s darling mom was a riot as well. It’s so endearing how the two of them banter with each other! Try out Aunty Ang’s chicken wings – they’re her (as in Irene’s mom’s) specialty and tastily awesome!

Though more known as an actress, my award-winning friend’s a very shrewd businesswoman with a good heart. I fully respect Irene for her stoic stand on things and unwavering principles. It’s not always about the money!

Anyway, I’m really excited that tomorrow’s THE DAY of our 8th mega illusion THE AERIAL EXIT! Come on down to the Asian Civilisations Museum and witness this one-off spectacular by J C & myself, happening on 12 Dec at 5pm.

This all-surrounded mega illusion sees us elevate five people 20+ feet in the air and if all goes well, they will completely vanish! We decided on this “perfect” height simply because it’d be clear and apparent to the people watching surrounded that nothing sneaky is going on.

All too often, people complain about the possibility of “twins” and they’d be skeptical that it isn’t the real illusionists or people involved but their “doubles”. So yep, there will be nothing dodgy this Sunday. See to believe.

Come on down and check it out yourselves, admission is free. As lovers of social media ourselves, we fully welcome photography and filming and uploads to YouTube. Feel free to blog, Facebook and tweet about it! Remember, you can stand anywhere you want because this ‘live’ event will be performed surrounded!

As you know, the 5 “muggles” (i.e non magic folks) are randomly selected by the National Heritage Board via the entries provided by people interested in experiencing this spectacle up-close-and-personal! Apparently over 150 individuals signed up for it, which is very cool 🙂

Righty, I gotta get ready for my long day ahead… the team and I have got lots to do still, and many things on our plate *grin* I love this busy period, it keeps us all on our toes! I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at our 8th mega illusion. For full details, click HERE!

PS: On a separate note, this is the very last week for you to vote for me as your favorite LG Ambassador. Thank you so much for your support the past 7 weeks 🙂 You’re awesome!
