Circus Acts to Hire



There are popular circus acts that have withstood the test of time. Since your grandparents are young, they might be familiar with some of the shows whenever a show comes in town. Up until today, even with the rise of modern technology and the internet, circus acts are still thriving.
Many people can’t simply resist the magic and charm that the circus can give them. The term came from the word cirque which means circle. 
If you want to know the popular circus acts, here are some of them:

1. Sideshows
This often features people who have unusual appearances. You might have heard of visiting mermaids that came from unheard of islands. There are dwarves and giants that you can often see on sideshows. In the past, the sideshows often showcase people with disabilities and oddities, you might not see them often today. The performers are now trying to give a message of acceptance as well as entertainment. Today, many people are more entertained than getting amazed with sideshows.

2. Animal Stunts
You can see lions and tigers jumping on fires, elephants riding cycles, and many other animals that do tricks in the circus. In the past, these animals were said to be abused by the trainers. Fortunately, today, there are a lot of them that know how to treat the animals in good condition. There are also known laws and measures that can protect animals from accidents and abuse. When it comes to animal stunts, the equestrian stunts are an exciting example since riders perform various body tricks while riding a horse.

3. Acrobatics
A circus is not complete without acrobat performers. These people aim to amaze their audience by performing dangerous tricks. There are people who excel in tumbling and gymnastics that can make the show worthwhile. The acrobatics can be composed of a couple of performers or a single performer. Some of them used horses as props in the past. They often perform somersaults while riding the horse. You might still see this classic act in some shows today such as the one with Circus Uncertainty. You can visit the right site for more details about the current acts that are available.

4. Clowns
You might not call the show a circus if there are no clowns on it. Although clowns may be creepy for some people due to a lot of deaths and issues surrounding it, they still exist in order to entertain a lot of audiences in the centuries. They make the people laugh by bumping into each other, performing various acrobats, and speaking in funny dialogues. The silly performances are still their trademarks even if years have already passed.

5. Elephant Acts
Because of too many animal rights and abuse with regards to elephants, many circus shows decide to retire the exotic creatures. However, in some of the shows who were able to pass the strict standards of the animal welfare act, you might still be lucky to find an elephant who can pick up coins through its trunks. Living with elephants can put trainers at risk though. There are still accidents and injuries that can happen because elephants can simply be too big to handle.

6. Juggling
Some people frequently associate juggling with clowns. But this is not the case for all. There are some circus performers who can amaze the audience with their abilities to juggle without getting into clown costumes. For more information about juggles, please visit this site here: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/juggle. There are performers who can initially juggle four balls or pins in the air, and they can add two or three more. This can make the audience getting excited and restless. Others put danger into the show by juggling knives or darts.
These are just some of the circus acts that still exist even if centuries have already passed. Just expect that there are a lot of differences between the shows in the past and the circus acts of the present. If you are looking for some entertainment that is unmatched, you can get off from your computer screen for a day or two and watch an actual circus performance.
The shows have withstood the test of time because they are truly unique and entertaining. Even if you spend just an hour in watching a circus performance, you will be assured that you will never regret it. Grab tickets today and see for yourself why these classic shows are still being performed by circuses today.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
