Win tickets to see the Amazing Bubble Man

BIO

Shanghai-born and Hong Kong-based, Vivian Chen coordinates the Cityseen column. She reckons the best way to learn about the city she loves is by writing about it. Besides taking on party-hopping duties for CitySeen and discovering romance for the Weddings column, she also enjoys writing about fashion, travel and other fun. A good quote gives her a buzz as does a stretch on the yoga mat.
 

When Lunchbox Theatrical Productions' chief executive James Cundall saw Louis Pearl's Amazing Bubble Show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year, he was mesmerised by the things he could do with something as simple as washing-up liquid.

Cundall approached the "Amazing Bubble Man" after the show and offered to take him on a world tour. From September 12 to 16, Pearl will be performing his magic on stage at the Academy for Performing Arts.

Pearl, a San Francisco native, has taken childhood fun to another level. He's been in the trade for almost 30 years and honed his skills with specially designed equipment for stunts such as blowing square bubbles, bubbles within bubbles and bubble juggling.

He has performed in front of more than a million people and is known to bring out the inner child in everyone who sees his shows.

CitySeen has two pairs of A-reserve tickets (priced at HK$550 each) to give away. To win a pair, tell us in 50 words or less about your favourite childhood toy. Send your e-mails to cityseen@scmp.com with "bubbleman" as the subject, including your name, contact number and address by 6pm on September 7.

Tickets are also available at hkticketing.com priced from HK$395 to HK$550.
