On Saturday, 27 June 2009, at 9.30pm in Central Mall, I will serve as adjudicator for an unusual national and world record. As one of the panel of judges, I will keep count of the number of completed grand illusions set by two illusionists. Billed as the Ultimate Record, J C Sum and ‘Magic Babe’ Ning will attempt to perform 15 illusions within 5 minutes. The current, unofficial world record is ten illusions, set by Hans Klok of the Netherlands.
The International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM) Ring 115, Singapore will field three representatives. The Ring’s president, John Teo; committee-member Betsy Teo; and I (vice-president) will be present to ensure that things add up.
Essentially, this is a brave attempt by the dynamic duo, as it has never been done. It will be the first of its kind in the world and should place Singapore on the world map. I hope to announce a world record in my next post.
Please come and support the event, and our two leading illusionists!
