Inner Magic Club held its monthly competition last Wednesday. The contest category was Clown Magic, possibly one of the most difficult categories to tackle for the contestants. Magic and Clowning are difficult arts to master by themselves. To combine them and be good at both really stretches the performer’s natural ability.

As usual, George and Marie Mamonluk provided the incentives for the contest—the first, second and third prizes. Unfortunately George and family were not able to watch the show, as they were vacationing abroad. But George (the Chinaman, as his magic personality is known) sent a staffer to Pepeton’s to hand to me personally the prizes and to bring the giant timer used in the contest.

The Chinaman also emailed me pictures of his family enjoying their trip abroad. I’m sharing the pictures to our readers, as many of his friends in the Philippines would like to experience vicariously their tour in foreign countries.

George and Marie pose before the imposing Petronas Twin Towers during their visit in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. From 1998 to 2004, the Petronas Twin Towers held the title “tallest building in the world” until Taipei 101 wrested the distinction.


The Chinaman and children take a stroll in Merlion Park and smiled to the camera for this souvenir shot. Designed as an emblem for the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) in 1964,  the Merlion (a lion head with a fish body resting on a crest of waves) is Singapore’s icon to the rest of the world

I’m waiting for Boy Samson to provide me pictures of the Clown Magic competition to post on this blog. Come back often to check when the photos go online. There were some stunning shot of Clowns in colorful outfits performing their physical comedy magic.

Stay magical,
