Review: The Daily Deception – Si-Fi Project by Xiang Liu

I can only wish that I had first seen these effects performed live for me by Xiang Liu; I would then have him swear not to tip the methods behind it all – this is truly amazing stuff.

Amazing

Review: Tchin by Eric Leblon

The product descriptions state that the effects are visual, fast and punchy.... that is true however, they are not really forthcoming. You will need more than the “Want-A-Drink” gimmick that is included. While I understand that if everything is included, the MSRP would be a lot more than $49.95.

Review: TAB Test by Wayne Fox

In effect, during the course of your set of card magic, you show the tab of the card box to a spectator and have them simply think of one of the words they can see printed on there. Then, without any fishing whatsoever, you are able to tell them the very word they were merely thinking of.

Review: Kawaii Bento by Shirley Wong

Coming from a background of teaching pastry to homemakers and professionals, I can see how this beautiful book would appeal to both. Every bento is so pretty and well-executed. I spent the better part of an hour just deciding which recipe to attempt first. Finally, I narrowed it down to three recipes: Walking in the Rain (p 40-41), Panda in a Bamboo Forest (p78-79) and Baby Chicks (p82-83)

Review: Adventures of 2 Girls by Ning Cai and Pamela Ho

"A heart-warming, humorous and inspiring story about friendship, chasing dreams, taking risks and letting go." Let's be real here. We're human. The first thing that draws us all in about the summary of Adventures of 2 Girls isn't this sweet one-liner at the end, or the list of pretty places Ning and Pamela went to. It's the sentence that says "two best friends who take a nine-month break from ...[Read More]

Review: Simply Onigiri by Sanae Inada

Sanae Inada's book has lifted my perception of the humble Onigiri. My first impression was that it was just a triangular white rice ball filled with fish and wrapped in seaweed, a little meal or snack that you could buy at Japanese convenience stores as an afterthought. I just never looked at rice as anything more than a staple.
