Last weekend, Meta Illusions offered me the chance to showcase my magic in Macau, for Renault’s yearly dealer conference. After hearing the news, I was shocked but delighted at the same time. I was excited to share my magic in Macau, also known as the “Vegas in China”, and an epicenter for its gambling and glitz. At the same time, I was also feeling nervous as it is my first time performing overseas alone.
On Sunday, I was all packed and ready to head out to Macau for my show. After taking a 4-hour flight with transit in between, I have finally arrived. The weather was crisp as it was cool and dry. I hopped on a shuttle bus to Broadway hotel, and I was warmly greeted by the hotel staff at the lobby. They led me up to my room and to my surprise, my hotel room had a beautiful scenery which overlooks Galaxy Macau.
With no time to waste, I got changed and prepared for my show at China Rouge. It takes 10 minutes to walk to the location and I enjoyed the sights of Macau in the meantime. As I entered China Rouge, I was amazed how the restaurant looked just like a scene from a Jackie Chan movie. The client was happy that I was at the event early and briefed me on the flow of events. As I was waiting for the event to start, I met some of the other entertainers including the Contortionist, and also the drummers.
Around 8pm, it was showtime. I introduced myself by making flames appear in my wallet. I then begin roving around the crowd and working my magic (pun intended). I had a fantastic time performing for the guests, with one of the guests so shocked when I turned paper into money. She kept asking me to redo the trick for her as she examined my sleeves, and as skeptical as she might seem, it ended off with a standing ovation at the table. The client was also really happy that I gave her a magical experience that I promised and lightened up the atmosphere at the event. After an hour of magic, I took a slight bow for my last group of guests and I bid the client goodbye!
It was a wonderful and eye-opening experience in Macau, and I am happy to be able to spread magic and happiness to people around the world. Thank you, Meta Illusions, for the great opportunity and I am looking forward to the next overseas show.
After the show was over, the client texted my manager, Alexander to share with him a wonderful feedback.
