During one of my trips to Singapore, I brought my camera there. I stayed in Clarke Quay, one of the most happening places in Singapore currently. One fine Saturday I bumped into this daredevil show in the middle of busy Clarke Quay, The Impalement Cage!

The star of the night is Magic Babe Ning. Who? That was also my initial reaction when I heard the name. I later found out that Magic Babe Ning appears in one of the hottest men magazines around, FHM in Singapore. Dubbed as the sexiest woman magician in Asia, she performed one of her famous escape act. Harriette Houdini anyone? This time, the magic is done differently; out in the open, with no covers, no shadowy silhoutte, with live crowd in all 360 degrees! Interesting?

She called up this joker from the crowd to “check out” he props, to make sure that they are good. For all I know, this joker is one of the crews.

Then it was Magic Babe’s turn to perform. As soon as she took off her black leather jacket, wolf howls were heard across the floor. Can’t really blame them, she is hot!

Sexy baby!

She was given 60 seconds to try and dislodge herself before the spikes come down on her. Yeah, you know, the itty gritty stuffs. Well, to cut to the boring stuff, yeah, she freed herself alright. And quite professionally too. At the very last moments, she even managed to grab her hair pin and let her hair flow down! Check this out!
