My Love with Cards

Even since i was bitten by the magic bug, cards have become something indispensable in my life. Though I know that magic is not entirely about cards, well I can perform other things too, but cards have been most of my interest, kinda like my "specialty" in magic.

Card collection is definitely one of the best things in life.

And there's something I came to understand only after learning magic. Do you that there are some mysterious and captivating knowledge in cards? Thousands of years ago the symbols in our common deck of 52 playing cards, plus the jokers, were created as a calendar and lifetime guide for the earth. The 52 cards represent the 52 weeks of the year. The 13 cards in each suit represent the 13 annual cycles of the moon, and the 12 face cards represent the 12 signs of the zodiac. The numbers on all of the cards added together from each of the four suits, equals 364? The days of the year less one. The joker represents the 365th day of the year, and the 2nd joker represents the extra day in leap year. The four suits represent the four seasons of the year, and the seasons of our lives. The two colours, red and black, represents day and night. Interesting isn't it?=)

And cards have brought me to know so many interesting people and friends. Brendan is one of them. Oh ya, and there's a term to describe ppl like us, the "cardician", meaning the card magician. I used to thought there's another quite good one - cardiologist, the specialist of cards! Hehe..i think one day when i become a cardiologist, the double meaning can be applied to me dy. Ha.

My 2nd flourish video posted on youtube. I've long prepared to film the 3rd one, but time is really a limiting factor! Hopefully can do it pretty soon. Enjoy the vid, and feel free to give comments!=)
