When Magic meets Yotel

This week, our magicians at Meta Illusions got the chance to amaze the wonderful people down at Yotel’s Hotel opening! Located at the heart of the island, Yotel provides quality service, exceptional facilities. And what better way to add value to the hotel’s elegance and luxuriousness than with Meta Illusion’s brand of close-up magic. We specially customised close-up illusions especially for Yotel; some of which includes materialising a hotel souvenir right before the spectator’s very eyes as well as changing a hotel guide map into a stack of cold hard cash!

It was a fantastic opportunity to not only entertain the guest, but at the same time, out magicians, Yu Ji and Anderson, had the opportunity to incorporate the values and mottos of Yotel and accentuate them through their magical performance. The reactions from the crowd were amazing!

Here we see how Yu Ji’s magic astounds and entertains the guests of Yotel!

Magic beyond Culture

This week, our magicians at Meta Illusions got the amazing opportunity to perform for a group of international guests all of whom flew straight in from the land of the rising sun – Japan.

Despite the difference in culture, language and ethnicity, magic seems to be the universal language that binds the whole of humanity in soft ephemeral threads. The clients were determined to make their evening an entertaining and memorable one. Thus, what better way to conclude this amazing evening with Meta Illusions’ brand of classy and intellectual magic. Our magicians, Alexander, Asia’s Top iPad magician as well as Anderson were both up for the job. Alexander blew the crowd away with his plethora of eye-popping miracles some of which include passing solid through solid as well as defying the very laws of gravity!!!

Do have a look at the reactions that Alexander garnered during the show!

A Magical Birthday Celebration!

I was so thrilled and honoured to be invited by Taksu Singapore, to perform at Andaz Singapore hotel on 4 November 2017. When I first arrived, I was greeted with such an amazing view as we were located at the rooftop and I started entertaining the guests with some magic. Look how excited they are! It’s always such a joy to put a smile on people’s face.

However, the weather soon took a turn for the worst and we have to move indoors. Once the guests were comfortably seated and enjoying their meal. I then proceed to showing them some cool magic. That moment of astonishment that magic brings to people is such an unforgettable experience for me! Really cherishing and loving every moment of it.

Magic Entertainment at Marina Bay Sands

This week, I had the great opportunity to perform for the upper echelon of several Japanese companies at Marina Bay Sands. The event was a business dinner for the Chief Executive Officers for the various companies. Although the event was graced by both choral singers and a classical piano artist, the event coordinator decided to engage Meta Illusions magic services to add on to the elegance and wonder for the evening with our own brand of classy, intellectual and entertaining magic.

The guests were formal yet upon witnessing the various magic miracles, they were put at ease. They particular like the illusions with ropes where I proceeded to fuse and unfuse the strands of fibers visually before their very eyes. The audience were so impressed and astounded by the many miracles that they exclaimed their desire to learn magic to me! What a sight!

The look on their faces brings joy both to me and their colleagues at the same time. It is indeed wonderful to see a glimmer of magic once in a while to help forget the daily drudgeries. Have a look on the face of Mr. Tomiya!

To hire a magician at a corporate event not only brings about good solid entertainment to the table, we are also able to bridge an intimate connection not only between the performer and guests but also amongst the guests themselves. Magic reveals that side of our child-like, fun-loving personality that will inevitably draw individuals towards one another. We do not only cater entertainment; Meta Illusions creates wonderful memories!

I hope everyone reading this has had a great weekend as I did!

Cheers.

When Magic meets YuLi Jewellery

Last week, our magicians at Meta Illusions had the opportunity of performing their brand of classy magic in collaboration with The Peak Magazine, Maybank as well as YuLi Jewellery. Having understood that magic adds tremendous value not only to their jewellery exhibition but also to the amazing entertainment that is prepared specially for the wonderful audience down at VLV, Clarke Quay. What better way to complement luxurious jewellery than exquisite and fine magic for the evening.

The main highlight of the show was a specially customized and designed iPad magic segment performed and conceptualized by the Co-founder of Meta illusions, Asia’s Top iPad magician, Alexander Yuen. He mezmerized the crowd by creating the perfect illusion; Alexander materialized a real physical diamond necklace from the screen of an iPad. Not only was this astounding in effect, combining jewellery with digital magic created a profound sense of elegance, perfection and luxury that no ordinary exhibition can provide. The performance for the evening was extremely well received; it is our motto at Meta Illusions to provide top-class quality magic to suit the needs of our clients whenever the opportunity arises.

Magical Circus Troupe on the Streets

On the 13th of October, I had the chance to be working with the Science Centre Singapore for their new release of Circus happening in late October. It was a literal circus troupe that was put together by Science Centre Singapore to hit the streets. The team consisted of jugglers, uni-cyclists and of course, a magician.

This was an extremely special event for me as there 3 different locations where I performed in on the day itself. First, we started off at Raffles place.

The streets outside Raffles place was really busy and packed with people getting from one place to another but i was determined to find people to be amazed in the midst of the busy. I soon laid my eyes on two gentlemen standing around and decided to start off with them.

He kept asking : " how did you do that ? "

Lastly, we arrived at Tanjong Pagar where we all gathered and do what we do best. I even had someone mentioned that he came down from office just to see what I did because his colleague went up and telling everyone how she was so amazed with the magic I showcased to her.

The day ended off with much applause and happy faces which is one of the few things i love about magic that it brings, but what I definitely loved the most was when I received 3 same compliments from 3 different groups saying : " you made our day " This is what I love and believe, amidst the busy and the hectic, just some good magic can make your day :)

A Magical Campus Run

On 11th of October I had the opportunity to perform for the Ntu Runner's Club at their 5.8km Campus Run 10th Anniversary event. We have done several events for Ntu before and it was more than a pleasure to do so once again! This time it was a night run event by the Ntu Runner’s Club and what a better way to cool down after a long run than a good session of close-up magic. Much fun was lined up for the students immediately after the run.

The live band and emcees kept the atmosphere vibrant. Apart from the snaking queues of the food stalls and goodie-bag collection stands, I was amidst the crowd bringing different groups the unexpected.

I had the luxury of interacting with many students which had magic happening right before their very eyes.

This couple was so excited even before anything happened because of the participation anxiety.

A Night of Magic at Resort World Sentosa

This weekend, I was given a fantastic opportunity to perform for the wonderful guests over at Singapore Press Club’s very own Press Ball 2017 – Rockstar. I received a text message months before the event from one of Singapore Press Club’s events liaison, Mr Santosh, of whom was kind enough to provide his guests with an evening of powerful and entertaining close-up roving magic. There is nothing more spectacular at a dinner ball than a roving magician performing seemingly remarkable illusions in close proximity.

Everyone at the event was extremely well dressed; many of which were dressed up as their favourite rock stars. Music and excitement was in the air even before the event started. The event was extremely exquisite; well furnished with crystal chandeliers, Turkish carpets, and fine candle lights; a perfect environment for our brand of luxurious and classy magic.

The crowd was in for a spectacular treat. Distinct from the usual arsenal of tricks, I performed some unique miracles many of which created a brilliant reception from the audience; one of thunderous applause and an incessant bout of laughter. One of the illusions that was extremely popular in particular was me turning paper into money. The huge gasps of awe proved both entertaining and gratifying for me as a performer. Knowing that my audience appreciate and enjoyed my magic makes my happy.

I got the chance to take a welfie with Mr Santosh towards the end of the performance. He remarked that I, I quote, was ‘one of the most brilliant magicians he has ever seen’. Though this is too great of a compliment for me to accept, I am glad that he finds my service both professional and excellent considering that this is the second time round Singapore Press Club has hired us for our services. We, at Meta Illusions take pride in our commitment in providing world-class quality magic entertainment for our guests and clients!

This week has been a blast for me. And I hope that whoever is reading this has had a great week as well!

Happy magical birthday for 88.3 JIA FM!

When I heard that I was given the opportunity to perform for 88.3 Jia FM’s 10th Anniversary on the 6th of October, I was extremely excited and honored as I had been listening to this radio channel since I was a kid. 88.3 Jia FM is the only bilingual station in Singapore that plays both English and Mandarin all-time favorite ballads from the 1980s to the current hits, making them a popular hit among Singaporeans from all walks of lives.

The Zouk Capital was already pumping with lively music and flashing lights when I arrived half an hour early, ready to prepare for an amazing show for the night. Soon, the guests trickled in and my inner fan emerged when I saw all the famous DJs in person- it was like a dream come true! It was then that I promised myself I would make them my fan too by the end of the night. And that was exactly what I did!

Look at how amazed they are!

Look at how amazed they are!

As the music blared and the lights dimmed, I was ready to start my first performance. Close-up magic is a very intimate performance where the magician makes the magic happen right in front of the audiences’ eyes, creating a deep sense of wonderment and a long lasting impression after the trick is completed. I approached the first table and started off simple with a coin trick, where the coins can teleport from one hand to the other.

Overall, I had a great time performing at the event! The audiences were great and it was an honour to be able to showcase my magic to these people. I hope I can be back to perform for 88.3 JIA FM once again in the future.

Magical Birthday Surprise

Something amazing happened last week for me! I received an email from one of our clients, Mr. Cook, of whom requested for my magic services for a very special occasion; he intends to give his wife a magical surprise during her 29th birthday party. Mr Cook was an aficionado of all things good. He ultimately decided to settle for Meta Illusions brand of Magic of which would provide not only an entertaining evening for his guests at home, but also one of awe and wonder!

I agreed upon his request hours before the event; though abrupt, I believe that it is our duty as performers and magicians to provide quality, maximum entertainment for our guests when the opportunity arises.

The performance was set late in the evening. Mr Cook and his guests were heartily dining at his extremely well furnished apartment filled with beautiful vases of exotic flowers, candle light and vintage wine. And what better way to punctuate the evening with good quality close up magic! I revealed myself from my hideout, the front yard of the apartment, only to be received with squeals of excitement from the crows; having realized a magician was in the house, they were all extremely excited to see what was to be presented to them.

The crowd’s reaction towards magic was both gratifying and pleasant. Many of them had not seen magic up close before; in fact, the only time where they had seen any form of magic was only through the medium of the television console. Many believed that all the illusions and tricks were accomplished with intricate props with the help of camera tricks; and I was there to show them that magic, not trickery, indeed exist. Astonishment was followed by laughter, disbelieve was accompanied with the cool rush of adrenaline; all of them enjoyed the performance, particularly Mrs. Cook, of whom the entire show was specially designed for. Her satisfaction can be seen from her reaction the moment I caused a huge fruit to materialize right before her very eyes. I was glad that our brand of magic was received with standing ovations!

Magic, made an evening unforgettable for our clients. It helped solidify something intangible – love and friendship. Hopefully it can help you create something memorable as well!
