Hi regarding the above post, I'm so sorry for the fact that the newslink isn't "Linking" at the top of the post. I've no idea why, I've tried several times, but it just won't work, half of it hasn't highlighted & I can't seem to make it!!!

I'm sure if you enter it in the address bar at the top of your computer screen, it will take you there, so sorry for inconvenience, no idea why it has happened.

All good wishes

The plane landed safely & J.C.Sum & Babe Ning are now on there way to the hotel where they will be staying, in the lead up to the Southern England Magic Convention.

Collin has just phoned me, & I had a brief "Chat" with the three of them on the hands free in the car!!!!!!

So excited now considering all the incredible problems that had been encountered regarding the Convention, one day the truth will out, but for now we are just really looking forward to a TRULY FANTASTIC CONVENTION!!!!

All good & Excited Wishes!!!

Hi everyone, as you know "Magic Babe" Ning & J.C. Sum touched down in the U.K. a couple of hours ago. I've tried & tried to upload a photo for you all to see on this website, but to no avail. I shrunk the picture down to the size of a postage stamp, & it still wouldn't send, so I've given up.

The picture shows the Deceptive Duo with Collin (convention organiser) greeting them at the airport, making up a sort of "Tricky Trio"

To view the picture, if you want to see how Ning looks even after an 18 hour flight from Singapore, then please go to my website http://www.mikedanatasmagicstudio.co.uk & click NEWS & you will see just how hot she looks!!! (Plus J.C. & Collin of course!)

All good wishes

This is going to open a can of worm !!!!

The Gala Show.

Mike Danata....ok in places.... bits poor

James More.... image good....but effects not up to image.... ok

Mel Mellers...Ok

Isis....An act you would not pay to see and I would not see it if it was free!

El Loco...good working act

JC Sum the mega illusionists...well he made all those mega illusions disappear that night VERY POOR... DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE! and came on stage with a bucket, cloth and a hand full of coins....Reason for no illusions was air fare well JC ship them over by boat or hire some!

Magic Babe Ning if she was a male it would have been poor but nice eye candy...Finish of her part was the straight jacket that you could fit her, JC Sum and Houdini in....get a smaller one Babe! Very POOR!

Best act of night was the guy at the end Ray Charles but only a hand full stayed to watch it! He was funny, sharp and a GOOD working act!

I talked to Bar staff and they could not believe the "acts" on stage!

I wish this whole event was better but I guess it's the first year..yes I will be going again but they must use better performers! Ones that work and not full of hype! Good luck next year!!!

During the day lots of stuff happening and some good dealers in the main hall....best bit of the day was to see The Twins and Mark Parker Question and Answer .....honest, funny, no hype and you can see why these guys are at the top of the tree!

YOU ARE RIGHT BP!
It was a good idea for a southern convention......But remember BP it was the FIRST YEAR! I hope they do it again next year and think about it and who they book....

Yes magic babe ning looked HOT but what was that size of jacket her XXLARGE? JC Sum where are your mega illusions? Some hype going on....and don't use the Air fare reason...ilusionists fly all around the world! You cold have shipped one?

yes the question and answer thing was good with twins and mark parker...very off the wall, never seen something like that before and we got free brochure too! Alex Lee thing was good also!

lets open them worms.......JA

Well, I think the Magic Duo need some justification.

Why don't you guys try shipping a illusion over to Singapore and see how much it cost? But well, since it is the first time, I guess there are also budget issues that they need to consider.

But I will still say it is a good first time for both Singapore and UK magicians to interact and share, maybe next time, they bring in the whole Ultimate Magic Show. Smile

Hey Davidkim...
Thank you for your post yes I have shipped illusions over to Asia and yes you can do it and to budget. Or they could have hired some illusions! And before you say it I can find three illusions in the UK which they could have hired from JC sums own books!
I feel I don't think they can be call the "Ultimate Magic Show!"

Hi everyone

Appreciate the feedback. I understand that there's some political strife going on between the SEMC and BlackPool groups, but it's not my intention or interest to participate in that. Smile Make love, not war.

SEMC was certainly an experience for me, the English are hospitable and I met many nice people there. iTV came down as well to interview us, and personally, I had lots of fun in the UK because I made many friends and got in touch with folks I already know. Mark (thanks for pointing out this thread to me) & the Twins are absolutely hilarious... =)

Anyways. Just so that there is absolutely no misunderstanding however, I'd like to take the time to state here that J C & I were NOT booked to do an illusion show at all, for SEMC. J C was there to do a lecture, and me to do my one gal show on stage. On the gala night, J C merely opened the show for me; and the organisers knew they got me for my 20 min one gal show which they saw on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KS9RqyiouE

I'm sorry that somehow, it's assumed that we're bringing our Ultimate Magic show over from Singapore. If we were booked by the SEMC organisers to do our illusion show, we'd have done so accordingly as we've performed overseas extensively, and shipped our equipment and illusions over. So, yes, J C & I were doing what we were booked to do... once again, my sincerest apologies if there was any miscommunication but for J C & I, it was very clear between us and the organizers since we talked about this for over a year now.

Having said all that, I'd like to thank all the people who said very nice things to J C & I after the show, as well as, for making me feel right at home this being my first time at UK and all =)

Best regards from Singapore,
Ning

Ok Ning thanks for the up date...perhaps then it is down to the people that bill you on the posters and leaflets to bill you correctly? You should sort out a rider. But from the audience point of view all I heard was the big talk about you both being the Mega illusionists...which I did not see! However you are right in saying that you are a babe and hot too! But please look at your Straight Jacket its to LARGE...! good luck and next time I hope all works out well for you both!

I met Ning & JC at the convention,they are both really nice people & we had a very quick talk on illusions after JC's lecture.Having purchased JC's latest illusion book he is a really clever performer & creator of modern ideas & presentations.They may not have performed the bigger illusions but what they did perform they performed well.Again keep up the good work.

The Mark Parker/Twins lecture was also very good.
