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.

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!

Formula One meets Formula Magic

Formula One Singapore

This month, our team of Magicians at Meta Illusions were given a fantastic opportunity to showcase their talents and skills at Singapore’s very own Formula 1 event down at Singapore Grand Prix. Our magicians, Yu Ji and Anderson, in preparation for the event, were suited up, and were extremely eager to perform for the wonderful people, both local and international, down at Paddock Club Lifestyle booth throughout the weekend.

Armed and equipped with their arcane and mystical knowledge on the art of conjuring, they have decided to give the audience a huge surprise. Even though the weather was not well as expected, both of their magic brought a certain sense of joy, excitement, sometimes, even more so than the humming and buzzing of a Formula One engine.

Corporate Magician

The audience stunned and mesmerized by the magic of magician Yu Ji. Revising classical magic with contemporary notions of presentation, Yu Ji defines what new generation magicians should be – cool, sleek, suave. Here, you can see how mere packets of card were able to generate psychological fireworks for those who were interested in our entertainment. The lady in the picture, a Chinese of Indonesian origin, was so amazed by the card trick that she requested for a photo, together with the magicians at our booth. The best form of compliment for us magicians, is not the jaw dropping moments, but rather, the smiles at the end of the performance. That is when we know that we have brought meaning and fun to our audience.

In this photo, we see our magician, Anderson in action, attempting to demonstrate his ability to alter the fabric of reality for two of SIA air stewardesses.

Magic is all about the connection between the performer and the audience. Fooling the audience is secondary. The true performer is one that is able to engage, amaze and provide moments of fun and excitement. That is our main goal. And that is what Meta Illusions pledges to our clients. And our magicians did just that for Singapore Grand Prix, with huge success!

Our magicians were also performing alongside with the Co-founder of Meta Illusions, Alexander Yuen, at the F1 event. He too, was showcasing his remarkable work on digital magic down at the various luxurious suites at Paddock Club. What better way to complement the event than Ipad magic!!

Intoxicated with a sip of Magic

This week, I had a fantastic opportunity to perform for Bacco Wine’s Boutique Italian Wine Fair. Bacco Wine specialises in exquisite fine wine, many of which can be considered luxury goods. The management of the event has decided to incorporate our sleek and stylish brand of roving magic to complement and accentuate the uniqueness and exquisiteness of wine. The mixture of wine and magic would prove a potent combination for fun and excitement.

With a wine glass in hand, a great number of guests at the event were all from diverse cultural upbringing; many came from London while others were born in Belgium, Canada and Scotland. Yet despite the cultural and historical differences, roving magic was not only able to entertain them, it also allowed me to create lasting bonds of friendship between strangers.

Magic broke the ice instantly and brought great bouts of laughter within minutes.

This photo was taken while I was showing a group of young ladies the world’s fastest card trick and they seem to be enjoying themselves greatly.

Everyone was excited to know that there was a magician around them. The moment they realised that the ‘man in black’ was approaching, they all gathered and greeted me with immense enthusiasm and cordiality. Apparently, the management intended to put my performance as a surprise for their guest, and how splendid has it turn out to be. There were frequent gasps of bewilderment and shock. One lady even exclaimed out loud how amazing the magic was!!

It was a truly wonderful afternoon performing for the guest. It brings me great joy to see how the art that I adore and love so deeply, is able to bring such joy to others.

Spectacular Magic for NUS Kent Ridge Alumni Family Day

This month, I was given a wonderful opportunity to perform for the wonderful crowd of NUS; the Office of Alumni Relations, NUS has invited me to perform close-up magic for their annual event - Kent Ridge Alumni Family Day. 

Anderson Singapore Magician

The event, very much like a carnival, had all sorts of spectacle, ranging from live singing bands to delightful gourmet food booths to excite the tastebuds - what better way to complement the joyous occasion with great magic done inches away from the audience.

I had the luxury of interacting with many ex-students and alumnus, all of which tremendously enjoyed the miracles happening right at their fingertips.

This particular group of current students were so amazed at the illusions that they started yelling and laughing the moment the magic happened. It brings me joy to see how strangers can connect instantly and create wonderful and unforgettable memories within seconds.

I also had the great honour of performing for the higher management of NUS - president NUS, Dr. Tan Chorh Chuan as well as the director of NUS Office of Alumni Relations, Mr. Bernard Toh. They enjoyed my performance tremendously and they even said that they will definitely consider me for future events. One of the audience member even said that I was one of the smoothest magicians he has ever seen! I am glad that magic entertainment appeals to everyone, providing them with much fun and laughter.

An afternoon of Magic for KK hospital’s Nurse’s Day

This week, our corporate magicians, Yu Ji and Anderson were invited by KK Hospital to perform their unique and creative brand of close-up magic for their Nurse’s Day event. The event, held at a lounge, were filled with popcorn wagons, ice cream stalls and entertaining photo booths. However, in order to make the event one that is entertaining, fun and highly interactive, magic was chosen by the management.

Our magicians were extremely eager to show the crowd something magical, mysterious and wonderful. The nurses were highly courteous and pleasant; many of them had not seen close-up magic in their lives. Despite this, they were very much astounded by the visual effects our magicians have to offer. Our corporate magicians magically made objects appear on the nurse’s hands, animate written ink while causing pieces of paper to turn into real money. However, despite the amazing magic, it is our belief that the most important thing within a magician’s performance is the interaction between the magician and the audience.

Our corporate magicians are able to break the ice within an instant; at the snap of the fingers. We are able to bridge a connection between ourselves and also, in between strangers. The value of a corporate magician is not measured by not only how amazing his magic is, but also how he is able to make his magical evening a fun and memorable one. Magic, in itself, is a valuable ice-breaker, that no other form of entertainment is able to accomplish effectively.

Here we see how our magicians are able to conjure up the smiles and laughter for their wonderful audience during KK hospital’s Nurse’s Day event.

Our team at Meta Illusions are dedicated to bring good, high quality magic entertainment to the Singapore crowd. We hope that you have appreciated our magic as much as we did ourselves.

Remembering Thieves Market with Magic

Last month, our team of magicians at Meta Illusions were out filming a special project at Sungei Road Flea Market. This is not an ordinary video but rather, it serves to commemorate the final days of this age-old bazaar that was formerly used as a platform for immigrants to sell illegal or smuggled goods. The flea market was Thus, to allow the older generation to reminisce this part of our country’s vibrant past, and to educate the younger generation on our colourful history, we have decided to make a short but meaningful video that combines both history and magic.

Sungei Road Flea Market shows a unique side of Singapore; it provides us with a contrasting view; one that is drastically different from the stereotypical modernised concrete jungle. The market sold a myriad of objects, ranging from archaic coins to old gramophone records. There was even a stall that sold old shoes of various designs for almost nothing. Our team was mesmerised by this interesting bazaar. The flea market seemed magical all by itself even without any magicians!

Armed with their knowledge and skills in magic, our magicians, Alexander, Elijah, Yuji and Anderson astounded the stall owners with our unique brand of magic with the items at their stalls. It is our belief that magic allows the performer to break barriers, ethnically and linguistically. And our little project at Sungei Road Flea Market proofed just that. We made rings appear and disappear at will, caused a plant to sprout from the ground and even made the Merlion, a landmark of Singapore, disappear! The stall owners were awed and amazed by our magic so much so that their reactions towards it were incredible. One stall owner, Mala, even agreed to provide us with an intimate interview on her life as a dealer at the flea market.

Magic has always captivated our imagination. We hope that our video production of Sungei Road Flea Market will captivate yours as well as it did ours! Let the memory of it live on the net and more importantly, within our hearts

What does it mean to have a past? Does your past define your future?Take a peek into the lives of those whose history started from this place.
