Mummy Floating on Air and a Flying Table! - WW

During 20 Nov - 7 Dec 2008, visitors saw a whole new side to our local museums like never before at the annual Explore Singapore!

I was away on a business trip and so missed lots of exciting events. I managed to attend a self-defence workshop with Vincent Ng and the Wrap! Festival.

I was awed by the magic show performed in public. There was only the chair supporting this Mummy's head!! She was floating in the air!

A member of the audience was asked to hold the corners of this flying table. She took a peek under the table cloth. The table was really flying on its own!

Singapore's Magician Of The Year Jeremy Pei, a 3-time Winner, has been performing magic since the age of 3, after watching his Illusionist Dad perform his Grand Illusion Act.

At the age of 14, he has travelled to many International Magic Conventions and Festivals for Competitions and Performances. Quite an achievement for a young man.

    Oh yes. I love the mystery of magic. I'm still scratching my head, how he did all that.

    You should sign up at National Heritage Board's website for coming events and exhibitions.

    Sorry, I couldn't publish a post announcing Explore Singapore! then, as I was abroad.

  41. Some months ago I remember reading an article in the Straits Times of an illusionist(cannot recall his name) who was able to make himself disappear from the ground floor of Raffles City and re-appear immediately on the roof top of the same building. This was mind boggling act.
