Last January 5, 2012, I was invited to the presscon of the The Search for Magikrong Pilipino 2011 that was held at RAZZZO BISTRO and RESTAURANT in BF Homes Paranaque.
Prior to that, me and the other bloggers just had our resto review at TEACUP located in Q.C so I was a bit dizzy when we came at the presscon because the location is quite far. But all the dizziness disappeared when JB DELA CRUZ (Corporate Magician and member of Illusive group of Magicians; seen him also on other events and KSM PRODUCTIONS presented to us the 12 contenders. Aside from their skills in magic , they also were able to made us laugh.
The Illusive group and KSM PRODUCTIONS is the first to hold the climactic finale of the first ever search for best " Open-Stage " magician in the Philippines. The search has started since last 2010.
The search was made nation wide so that they may able to help other magicians who are based in luzon and visayas region and yet very talented in their craft.
This yearly search will not be possible with the unwavering support of the Illusive group members:
