Updates, The GrandMaster Asia is coming back!

Hi all,

Did not managed to update in January as i was busy with preparations for filming and doing shows.

2018 is going to be awesome! Looking forward to a few projects and goals i have set for myself and hope to fulfil them. In March, my friend Howard Hamburg will be coming to Singapore for the first time to do a lecture. I enjoyed spending time with him in Vegas and the Magic Castle last year and look forward to meeting him again.

As some of you may know already, i have stopped the weekly magic gigs at The Bedok marketplace, Cafe Football and Bark Cafe. But don’t worry! New venue awaiting to be announced soon! :) And working on more public shows to bring to you in the near future :)

Lastly,after much drama and wait, The Grandmaster Asia is coming to SCTV Indonesia on 16th Feb! I will be travelling to Jakarta from 16th to end feb for recording as well 😉

Check out the trailer (I’m not in it though haha):

Till next time,

Magic Muse and ”Black Magic” both a success!

Hi everyone!

Time for some updates again, and once again thank you for keeping track with this blog :)

For those of you who still don’t know, i am working with JTV on a brand new online magic series called ”Black Magic” directed by J team director Shawn Tan and executive produced by Jack Neo! It is a great honor and fun to be part of this new project.

I’m happy to say that the first episode was a blast! I had the cast from the movie ‘Long Long Time Ago’ Charmaine and Jing Jing Ahma, they were both so adorable and were amazed by the feats of magic that i did. I am already looking forward to develop content for the episodes coming up. I will have to up my game with each coming episode- both challenging and fun! Check out some photos:

What makes this project more challenging than other magic series is the fact that it is broadcast live. This means that i have to keep track of angles and many other factors that might change during a live magic performance situation and work closely with the director to ensure nothing goes wrong. And you can be assured that there are definitely no camera tricks here :)

For those of you who missed the Live broadcast, you can watch the replay here: Black Magic Episode 1

In other news, the first show of Magic Muse at Canvas Singapore was a success! This was my first ticketed public show and i am glad to share the stage with Shawn Chua and The Sensational Stefano, and Shaun T from 91.3 fm who hosted the night. It was a fun night of laughter and magic as promised and many of the guests feed-backed that they enjoyed the night, so we are all glad to hear that!

Here are some photos from the night:
