Hahaha! πŸ™‚ This was an interview thing done by RazorTV recently during J C & Ning’s 3 Sides of Magic lecture in Singapore. If you watch part two on RazorTV, i’m actually interviewed in there too!

Anyway, i apologise for the lack of updates. We’ve been crazy busy and had days stretching to end at only 4am for almost a week in a row. I’ve yet to recover! Also… I’ll be in Italy from nxt week all the way up to mid-May! See you guys back then!

“M for Magic: The Street Apprentice” – Episode 1!

If you recall, i blogged just a while ago about the filming for the Internet TV show that features young magicians in Singapore. Well, the first episode is finally out, and i think it looks great! The show is targeted at the young teens and if you have young teens at home, do have check out the series. πŸ™‚ I personally think it is cool that Singapore finally has a platform of Internet TV to showcase young magicians.

Enough of all the mumbo jumbo… Check out the video right here:

Do rate and comment!

Look out for the next episodes coming up… one of which i’ll be in! *grin*

3D TV Filming Crew Experience

I’ve probably been very slow in replying emails and such – i apologize… but i’ve been so tied up with crewing for 3D TV program which starts sometimes at 7am and ends late night! =.= It’s been really tiring but also an awesome awesome experience. From young, my parents especially my mum, has always instilled in me that one should always learn from any experience and make the most of everything. For me, hence, every single thing, every single experience is a learning experience.

From crewing for 3D TV Program, i’ve learnt a lot about the behind the scenes of tv production. While we’ve been involved in tv programs before, it is the first time we are so fully involved since J C and Ning are the hosts for the hour long episode.As with any productions, after realizing and learning about the crazy things going on behind scenes, i’ve now a much much greater appreciation of tv productions – good tv productions to be exact. πŸ™‚

Besides the huge learning experience, i’ve also made new friends! πŸ™‚ I guess the thing with productions – because we all go through so many things together in a relatively short space of time, friendship is much easily build up. Afterall, we’ve all braved the crazy sun, insane rain and etc etc together!

Some of the production crew ‘clowning’ (??!!) around during a shoot πŸ˜›
Wendy and me! We’re schoolmates from NJC! I’ve known Wendy since then but only really got to know each other during this shoot. πŸ™‚ It’s cool how life’s paths intersect! Wendy is also extremely passionate about what she does so we’re similar in that sense! Passionate about our work! πŸ˜€
J C & Ning with part of the production team. The other parts are either missing (not at this shoot/ packing) or taking photos (me and Mike!)

Now, just for the heck of it, some of my favourite photos that were taken during the shoot. There are more actually, but some ‘disappeared’ from my camera. =_=

In any case, here we go (in no particular order):

I laugh every single time i see this J C Sum expression!

“I keel you!” (in an “Achmed voice” :p)

And of course, to wrap it up, my absolute favourite photo with my two favourite people in the whole wide world (excluding my parents)!

Ning, J C and Me! πŸ™‚

How could i not love what i’m doing????

Loud proclamation from Kinetic Gal/ Adeline Ng:

“I LURVVVEE MY JOBBBBBB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

PS. Yes the proper spelling should be: I Love my Job, but it doesn’t seem to express what i’m feeling enough so…

πŸ˜€

 

 

Filming for 3D TV…

Yes yes it seems to be loads and loads of filming for the last few weeks.

For this particular program, i make a special cameo appearance in one of the little segments where the host (ie. J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ Ning) come across a bunch people busking in Orchard… including myself, doing a spot of juggling!

Heading to shoot location just outside of ION Orchard.

Prepping for shoot. Later on after a few days, i complained to J C and Ning that i have no photo of us three together only (just for the cam, not in the action)…

Bet you did not know J C Sum could juggle! (look at Ning’s face looking on at the two of us! :p)

Prepping for another take

Fooling around while waiting… Pose looks familiar? πŸ˜› (reminiscent of Kinetic Gal 2009!)

I was supposed to make another spot for cameo appearance for a grunge MV style shoot, but due to various reason, did not manage to be in there. I did have some fun playing around with the light staff i was supposed to do the shoot with. πŸ˜€ I loved martial arts since young, and have a little background in that, hence my staff spinning is really more martial artsy style. *grin*

Anyway, this program is shot very differently from the usual as it is a 3D TV program. (So yes, you have to have a 3D TV to watch it and appreciate in full) It is actually a 3D Show program featuring hosts J C Sum and ‘Magic Babe’ Ning. There are quite some magic in it, besides all the other cool stuff so i think the final product is really going to be awesome! I can’t wait to see it! BUT!

Who wants to sponsor me a 3D TV??? Anyone, pretty please? πŸ™‚
