The Magician's Greatest Pay

One of the greatest rewards for being a magician are the smiles, laughters and applause you get once you have entertain your audience truly. The picture here was taken at The Curve during one of Zlwin's recent gig. This girl gave the nicest smile ever when she saw his magic. Good magicians have the intention to only entertain, not to trick or fool his audience.

The Mentalist.

The mind creates its own reality. – Zlwin Chew

Magic and People.

It isn’t a magician’s skills or top hat that captivates people: it is the moment of true astonishment, a moment of childlike wonder.


Zlwin Chew: Magician. Mentalist. Illusionist.

What is Magic? Is magic an illusion?

A mere trick of the mind? Or just a sleight of hand?

To return to innocence, when the world was magical, when logic gave way to wonder - this is Magic.

There are no tricks in magic, only wonder.

Your mind, my stage.

Zlwin Chew

is a magician, a mentalist and an illusionist. As a magician, he conjures something from nothing. As a mentalist, he explores the complexity of the human mind. As an illusionist, he performs miracles and wonders.

When we were young and innocent, everything around us seemed magical. We awed at the rising of the sun and the chirping birds. We were amazed at how the television works and how an airplane could fly. As we grow older, however, we start to understand how things work and logic sets in. We then lose our ability to feel amazed at things. But Magic has the power to bring back that childhood moment in every one of us, where we can once again be amazed and genuinely exclaim, “Wow! How did you do that?!”

This would be the firewood that fuels Zlwin’s passion and love for this beautiful Art.
