Finalists in a competition: The Strangers

Last weekend, our trio of magicians at Meta Illusions, The Strangers, competed in a talent competition hosted by both Bukit Timah Plaza and Noon Talk Media – they have emerged victorious among numerous other competitors having acquired third in the overall contest.

The Strangers – Yu Ji, Kim and Anderson – put in blood, sweat and tears to create a new, never before seen illusions specially designed for this competition. The illusion – to vanish a judge’s phone and allow it to reappear inside a box, a box that has been hung up on stage and secured under lock and key. The road to the illusion’s inception was not an easy one; weeks were spent conceptualising and perfecting the illusion under the guidance of Singapore’s top iPad illusionist, Alexander Yuen. Yet despite the gruelling practice as well as the audience’s scrutiny and scepticism, not only has The Strangers managed to complete and perform their illusion, they have managed to deliver their top class performance with class, swag and humour, much to the delight and amazement of the audience and the judges.

The most interesting part of it all is that The Strangers is the ONLY contestant performing magic within the competition to have emerged victorious. Numerous other magicians were either eliminated through the constant bouts of attrition amongst contestants. This is a true testament to The Stranger’s performance; they are ranked as the best magic act within this competition.

Although The Strangers did not rank first, their charisma and magic have won the hearts of the judges and the audience. One particular lady was so impressed with their performance that she took the initiative to commend them for their magic! What a heart-warming sight!

We hope that you had had a great weekend as well! Till next time.

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.

There was a particular group of students were so amazed that they started yelling and laughing the moment the magic happened.

It was a truly wonderful evening performing for the students. It brings me absolute joy to see how the art that I love deeply, is able to bring such joy and amazement to the students.
