Silhouette cutting for Advance SCT D&D

To night I did a silhouette cutting for Advance Scts’ “IR Night” Dinner and Dance at Marina Mandarin hotel. They hired Jeffrey Chung models as Casino girls roaming around. According some event companies stuffs said, the government had came out a new rules for events activities, so no casino setting just for fun allowed, means we would not seeing any fake casino table during the pre-event activities.

Wow, beautiful babes!

Bob Chua, one of the most experienced magician was around.

Marina Mandarin Hotel was the "Oval" shape building, a unique design in singapore. That was very nice interial, the view taken from 3rd floor.

Profile Cutting Job at M Hotel

Today (15 Dec) I done another silhouette cutting for Tanaka Electronics. I feel great while all the guests were friendly and exciting about their dinner & dance, especially they like my silhouette cutting.

I like to see the complex hair style, the more complex, the more exciting to produce the silhouette of the person.

Seems every time I doing a show at M hotel was a rainy day, this time won’t get any exception, haahaa!

The lobby area of M Hotel, some kind of “Feng Shui”?

Pre-event at Singapore Civilization Museum

To night I did silhouette cutting pre-event for JGC Diner & Dance at Asian Civilization Museum, at the hall at 2nd level. The guess was like my silhouette cutting. It was very enjoying while my artwork being like by the guess, it encouraging me to do it well.

Of course, when everyone said you are good, do not really believe you are really that good else I believe you can’t be improve. And sometime you met those guess given bad comment, do not take it seriously, because they might not be able to accept you art, that’s what I think., or the way I face the event entertainer job.

You got to always set you mind and attitude correctly, anytime, for any event.

Singapore Civilization Museum is along the Singapore River, it's opposite is Boat Quay.

The event organiser had arranged some sexy dancers for the dinner & dance openning.

Before I go to the event place, I had my dinner at 'Golden Shoe Hawker Centre', go to my favourite Nasi Lemak stall, the one i did not go there for half year ago. Bought the drum stick set, opps, the drumstick became 1/2 size of last time!! Thought because everything's prices was gone up, that's why, I bought an extra drumstick, so 2 drumstick's totally size finally equalized to 1 of the drumstick which last time I had before.

Just a little complaint

It was very interesting to see people from the side. I like to see the different of peoples’ features, and like to see their difference hair styles. During diner & dance, that’s lot more thing to see while the guest came with hair clips, ribbons and decoration, costume etc.

For silhouette cutting, the artwork usually not recognize by the person’s side profile that being cut, only recognize by his or her friends, because usually everyone seldom see their own side profile.

For many years experience, western guests was much more appreciated silhouette art, Singaporean who have better art knowledge was appreciated it as well, but not guest from China (except little amount of nice china people I ever met).

They always look down on non-china citizen who do this art, at least most of the time I came across such comment from China guest: “Huh? Silhouette Cutting? China have a lot what, do it for what?”

They believe they are the best in this art, or either silhouette cutting is a very low class art in China due to too many people doing, due to too many fake artists in China doing this art.

What I was thinking: If your country is really so good, why you come to Singapore? If you are educated people, then you should show some respect!

I am not the best nor the lousiest silhouette cutting artist, but I had taken few years doing practice and research on this kind of art.

I would like to say, lots China people in Singapore who doing fringe art during events was fake or low standard, they seriously spoilt the name of the real China artists. I am not like to talk bad about China people, I had met some real good and professional China artist, I just like to point out such small group of peoples had spoiling the world.

Unfortunately, most Singaporean public still believe as long as china artist, they are the best, so usually you can see, during the fringe art session in the event , china artist’s queue was longer than local artist. Maybe as a Chinese said: “The moon at oversea was nicer and rounder than our country.”
