  Master Tian Xueming also performed Gucai Tricks (traditional Chinese magic tricks) that enjoy over 2000-year history, such as Lovesick Wand and Fairy Picks Beans. Other members of the delegation showcased acrobatics, face-changing and contemporary magic, all of which were brilliant, producing one climax after another. The audience eagerly raised their hands to try in the performance, and all felt quite excited. For many, it was over too soon.
