It’s all done with Smoke & Mirrors, how else?

Smoke and Mirrors Singapore

Magic has always given me numerous opportunities in making new friends while at the same time, relish the vigour and pleasure of life! Last week, I was honoured with a wonderful chance to perform for a pleasant bunch of nice and beautiful people at Singapore’s very own Smoke and Mirrors rooftop bar. The scene at the bar was gorgeous and short of a word – breath-taking! The music was cool - one had the tendency to order a drink too many at this fantastic place - the ambiance was terrific; this was further accentuated with the fine furnishing and lights that the bar has meticulously embellished. Brilliant! Overlooking the skyline of Singapore; this has got to be one of my favourite places to perform!

Check out this video summary of the event:

This event was a networking session for Visa Group. I had a fantastic evening interacting with the crowd, of whom exhibited great enthusiasm and energy when I showed them some of the digital wonders on my iPad. These guys could not believe their eyes when I caused a solid object to materialised from a virtual space!

Magic at a networking session is always a good idea. The magic helps create a conversation topic for the guests and allows them to ease into natural conversation.

It has been a memorable and truly unforgettable experience performing at Smoke & Mirrors. I highly recommend a visit or two to this rooftop bar. Hopefully, I would be able to perform here once more in the near future!

Singapore Magician at HP's DaaS Launch Activation

Singapore Magician at HP's DaaS Launch Activation

When it comes to customized magic, my motto is simple:

Don't Tell Them, Show Them.

Instead of adopting a one-way dialogue, I engage my audiences through magic. Using magical effects, I exemplify product features and showcase them to the audiences. Take a look at the diagram below, it might look very technical at first, but with sufficient thought, it can be simplified by magic.

HP DaaS

For this HP DaaS activation, the objective of the performance was to:

  1. Excite the staff about this new service that HP is offering
  2. Educate them on the key features of the service
  3. Quiz them on the services with prizes

The way I got around designing the magic was to first understand the brief and develop a script that is cogent. After that, I would think further about how I can show these concepts to the audiences. For example, the DaaS service allows quick and efficient disposal of HP's technological products at the end of the cycle, to showcase this, I make a deck of cards disappear in the hands of an audience member while reiterating the disposal component of DaaS. The training I have as a psychologist have helped me in such divergent thinking. This is something that needs to be improved in most Singapore magicians.

Being a skilled professional who dresses well certainly made it easier for me to perform in this corporate environment. Since impressions are formed within the first few seconds of interaction, I made sure that I was well dressed and introduced myself with a pleasant demeanor. Of course, being able to perform amazing magic is a must.

With the help of an amazing team from PMG, we were able to quiz the staff and gave them prizes that were thematic to the activation.

In sum, it is not just enough to be able to perform strong magic in such environment. One must be able to understand reports and briefs, communicate effectively and engage audiences visually and intellectually.

Magic for the Indonesian Ambassador's Wife.

Last week, I was invited to a farewell party for a friend of mine who will be moving to Switzerland with her husband (you lucky gal!). And when I got to the venue, lo-and behold, it exudes regalness and royalty. 

Have you seen a place more magical than this?

I was stoked to be able to bid my friend farewell as well as perform in this gorgeous setting.

After the show performance, it was lunch. Lunch was served on a huge platter. Trust me, it was delicious!

Shortly, the Indonesian Ambassador's wife, Mrs Ferial Hadi, who is also a personal friend of the host came by. I was very lucky to be able to perform for her. She was really thrilled and enjoyed the magic immensely.

The food, the staff, the ambience and the decorations are definitely befitting for royalty. Check out this place if you wish to hold a classy private event.

Corporate Illusion Show Inside Attica

Corporate Illusion Show Inside Attica

Last week, I presented my corporate illusion show called "3 Sides of Magic" as a finale inside Attica. This was for a company called Facility Link who held their appreciation dinner at the club. 

As with most dinners, there was a cocktail reception where guests mingled among themselves and with their respective sales agent from the company. This allows them to catch up and re-establish relationships between the company and the client. 

Of course, in such events, there will be instances where guests are not attended to by the company's sales person as he or she may be attending to someone else. So how does a corporation make a guest feel personally attended to?

Entertainment! Specifically intimate entertainment. Music is usually good, but it does not offer thepersonal touch that Interactive Roving Magic offers. 

Well, not all forms of entertainment are created equal. Depending on the branding of a company, the choice of the performer for their event is a reflection of the company's image as well as their commitment to customer satisfaction. As a close up performer, I dress myself in a fashion that is sleek and befitting of the companies I represent. A shabby outfit would not reflect well on the company, whihch is why my suits are bespoke. Bad dressing is accentuated unprofessionalism especially when the performer interacts closely with the audiences. Keen eyed guests will notice these finer details. This is why I always make sure I look (and smell) best when I perform my magic. If a company wants to showcase a professional, sleek and sophisticated image, they will spare no expenses for a top tier magician. 

As the above was what the client specifically wanted, I was naturally the best choice for the event. I interacted with the guests, engaging them in fluent and eloquent presentations coupled with strong magic. At the end of the cocktail reception, the guests could not wait for my show on stage!

This corporate illusion show couples storytelling, artistic endeavors and magic all into one exciting show. The magic features illusions, mind reading and artfully crafted magic.
