I have always been amused with children and vice-versa. Nonetheless, my mode of amusing them would hardly ever include a magic show. However, never fear because Mr.D is always here - he's the magician in the house. Yeah, entertaining indeed. Who needs Copperfield or Blane (and all the other street magicians), when you have one in your own living room?
Mr.D was showing the kids Blane's elevating trick and each child gave a slightly different response.
OK, watch my feet. Watch it closely!
Mr. D stood in position. Suddenly he began to elevate.
Abang Z: Wow!!! Do it again!
Abang H: Alah, it must be your hands, I know!!
Little D: Wow, terrer-nya Abah! Abah fly high lah...
Now, the children are undergoing a training session to be great magicians, or illuisionists. I can only sit and observe (and pretend that it's real magic!). When Abang A and H perform a magic show, I must say that it's not too bad - the hand is sometimes faster than the eye. However, the kids still don't know the great value of keeping the trick a secret. The sense of achievement upon having to amuse the younger ones (being fed with "WoooW!" and "Fuyoooo!!") creates such great joy that in their excitement, the secret is revealed. So much for magic!
When the younger two - Princess and Little D do their little tricks, it's a different story all together. The coin is still there, the pulled card is NOT the one I picked, and so the list goes on.
So, watch out world, D's illusionists are here to entertain...
ps: don't forget to play along if it turns out a disaster!
