I was in Jakarta , Indonesia, last week recording a TV Show called ” The GrandMaster Asia” that will air on Indonesia SCTV on 1st December.
This is my first time performing on such a LARGE TV magic Show production and it definitely was an eye opener, nothing like what i see locally. The calibre of performers and acts were just mindblowing and i got to be honest, i was not ready for it. Look at the stage!
The performers came from different parts of Asia: Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Brunei and Thailand. Many were multi-award winning magicians internationally, and to watch their acts in action was simply amazing. So how did i do? Honestly, i was very nervous when i was on stage and when saw the judges. I would say that my first 2 performances were not up to my standard but i found my confidence and direction slowly after.
This made me wish we had more shows like these in Singapore to allow local artists to be able to get on a big stage and perform to gain experience that would be valuable when we go to a bigger international stage.
I will be back next week! Really grateful for the opportunity and the friendship made during this time, can’t wait to see them again
Stay tuned for more news!
