Yesterday, Ning & I had the honour of being the first ever Singapore Illusionists to be presented Merlin Awards from the International Magicians Society.
After the sneak preview of our new illusion show and awards presentation on stage by Mr Tony Hassini, Chairman of the International Magicians Society, we had an after party at the Sports Bar next to The Boiler Room (the venue of our new show). We fielded several interviews then had a chance to interact with friends, clients and fans. I was really happy to see many familiar faces as well as meet new friends.
A bunch of people brought Ning’s FHM cover issue for her to autograph
Ning & I were so happy that committee members of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 115 made time to come down to share this special event with us. This is a great photo!
Ning & I with Tony Hassini
Having seen thousands of magic shows in his 40 year career, it was an honour for Tony to say he was really impressed with the execution and originality of our work and the quality of magic from this tiny island. He graciously agreed to film an endorsement of our brand new illusion show “Sexy Magic/ Urban Illusions”
I thought this was a fitting photo to close this entry. Channel News Asia is doing an in-depth celebrity feature on Ning that will be published in the next month or two. The reporter from CNA wanted to take a photo with Ning holding her Merlin Award while posing next to her FHM cover. I thought it captured Ning’s stage name with such credible testament – ‘Magic Babe’; Merlin Award for Magic, FHM cover for Babe… what an official endorsement!
Credit for the fabulous photos comes goes to Weili, Hanlin and Daryl for their wonderful work ethic and amazing eye! Thanks guys!
