Mr Bottle in Shanghai!

video

Mr Bottle had such a great time in Shanghai! For the last show, Huang Junjie (黄俊杰), a Taiwanese magician and Mr Bottle decided to swap acts and see how they handle it. Of course, nobody realise that, but the magicians and crew were laughing non-stop when Mr Bottle try to copy Junjie's lines.

Here's the video, plus other interesting clips at Happy Valley!

Mr Bottle in Shanghai!

Since I am performing at a theme park, I wanted to have that carnival mood so I made balloons as giveaway for during my show. I experimented with new designs.

Here's a mini elmo! I love it so much that I will probably only make mini elmo next time!

One of the staff's kid! She is so cute.... everyone's darling!


My attempt in making a heart...

Mr Bottle in Shanghai!

Who's that?!
With the magicians and production team...

One of my performances is the night combine show which consists of 3 magicians and a variety of acts like acrobats and dances.

Taking photo with a little fan.... Actually, it's incredible that someone actually from Inner Mongolia recognise me from TV! (Mr Bottle was in Inner Mongolia just in June.)

At the press conference...

Mr Bottle in Shanghai!

Mr Bottle is very happy that Singapore flag is up flying! (Although this one looks a little wrong...)

Here's one of the video taken at the Press Conference by the local media:

Mr Bottle in Shanghai!

Mr Bottle was in Shanghai recently during China's Golden Week to perform for 9 days at Happy Valley magic festival, together with international magicians!

Here's Valerie and Gilles from Switzerland and France!

My buddy, Huang Junjie, who is the winner of Big Brother Variety Show! We had so much fun that we decided to do each other's acts on the last day of our performance!

With Albert Tam from Hong Kong!

Famous Illusionists, Franz Harary who design illusions for Michael Jackson and David Copperfield.
Shanghai magicians are there too! We had a sumptuous dinner then at a 40-seater table, the biggest and grandest I have ever seen!
I even had a great chance to visit the Shanghai World Expo 2010. (Let me know if anyone needs some tips!)

Of course, I got to visit some of the landmarks of Shanghai! I will show you some of the videos of the press conference as well performance photos soon!

Mount Faber

Mount Faber is such a gem! Other than the usual view that you get of Singapore from the top, you will also find very interesting historic stories about the hill at Mount Faber. Try to find these when you are up there:


1) Do you know that there are only 5 official Merlions in Singapore and 1 of them is in Mount Faber. You can see 1 other big Merlion from Mount Faber too!


2) Spot a "ship" that is "stranded" on the top of this "mountain".


3) Spot a red and white communication tower... don't mistaken it for Tokyo Towers!


4) A lot of people didn't know this beautiful building (below) is in Mount Faber (Pender Road). It's the Danish Seaman Church!

5) Lastly, you can find a few of Singapore's unique Black and White colonial houses on the way up.

Pulau Ubin

Have you told your kids what Singapore looked like in the 50s or 60s? It probably looked like Pulau Ubin!

Families can rent bicycles cheaply there at one of the many rental shops and they will even provide maps for free. However, there's are certain steep slopes that one must look out for!

My personal favourite is House No. 1 or the English Cottage. Now restored, it shows information about Chek Jawa, one of the nature gems of Singapore.

You can try to spot different animals like wild boars (there's one domesticated if you cannot find any in the wild), mudskipper and a crab with a big claw!

Science Centre

I love the Science Centre! We were very lucky to have performed at the magic exhibition there hence had a lot of chances to visit the place.

In fact, I love the outdoor gardens! Kids can easily spend about an hour playing around the outdoor exhibit. My favourite is the dragon optical illusion in which one can see the dragon head move! The garden is open 24 hours! (of course it gets a little too dark at night!)

Bottle Tree Park

What is really love about this place is the vast amount of place that kids can run about. This place is not related to Mr Bottle however!

One can find really unique bottle-shaped trees native to Australia. Families can do activities like fishing and of course, eating at their famous seafood restaurants there!

Supermarket

What?! A supermarket as an outing?

A trip supermarket can be made fun too! Create a shopping list for your kids and ask them to find the items in the shortest time possible! If you have 2 or more kids, you can have a competition!

Of course, there are some very important rules you must tell the kids like no running, no disturbing other shoppers, etc!
