Impossible Live of London West End is in Manila!

Magic shows have always interested me.  Even as a child, I knew it wasn't real magic but it was the illusion that sparked my interest and I wanted to figure out how to do it. I'm not sure if any of you remember but the world-renowned magician Harry Blackstone went to the Philippines in the 80s or early 90s and luckily, my parents brought us to see the show. It was amazing and I could never forget it.

After that, I'd ask my parents to buy me those magic kits. I would learn the tricks but perform it only for my mom and sister. I wasn't interested in performing at all. I just wanted to know how magicians do it.  The only time I "performed" in front of other people was when our English college professor told us to prepare a speech geared towards convincing people to do or buy something. But I just didn't write a speech.  I performed magic tricks as well.  My goal was to encourage people to enroll at Hogwart's and did a magic show with my speech incorporated in the performance.  I remember my teacher saying during my tricks, "Ay alam ko na yan, ganito mangyayari" ("Oh I know what's going to happen already") but I totally surprise everyone with a different outcome.  Sad to say the teacher didn't give me a high grade because I guess he felt embarrassed because none of the  calls were right but keeping the class entertained during my whole speech and receiving lots of oohhhs and aaahs was enough reward for me because usually, everyone just dozes off while people give their speeches.

That's why when my friend Ara told me that "Impossible" from London's West End is coming to Manila, I immediately bought tickets. It was timely too because it's wedding monthsary.  We don't really like traditional celebrations for monthsaries or anniversaries so watching a magic show was something we both liked and enjoyed.

"Impossible" is from London's West End and is currently on its world tour.  Unfortunately their last day was on January 3 this year but maybe they'll come back to the Philippines or maybe you can catch them in another country. The line up here includes street magician Magical Bones, escapist Ali Cook, mind reader Chris Cox, boundary breaking magician Ben Hart, and comedic daredevil Bello Nock.  

I won't discuss the tricks in detail so as not to spoil it for those who land on this page and are just about to watch it. All I can say is that there were a lot of standing ovations from the audience and until now, T and I are still trying to figure out how they did those tricks. I have theories but I'm not a hundred percent convinced yet.  And there were no boring moments the entire show.  Everyone was intently watching, shocked, laughing, and amazed.

I'll upload a part of the amazing segment that made everyone go wow on my YouTube Channel this week. You really have to see that! For information on their next tour dates and ticket prices, visit or follow them on Twitter @impossibleshow and Instagram @impossiblelive.

And as a final note, I hope Smart Araneta Coliseum will be more PWD-friendly. I was using a wheelchair that day and to our shock, there weren't any ramps in places where they should have ramps! Kudos to the staff of Araneta who assisted me all through out but I think it's unfair for the staff and it's unsafe for the PWDs to have to be carried every single time because of the absence of ramps. I really hope Mr. Manny Pangilinan can do something about this and include the building of ramps and PWD-access in renovation or repair plans soon. If anyone out there reading this is connected to Mr. MVP, I hope you can bring this to his attention. Thank you.
