Masterful face-changing by Fang Wenquiang captivated the audience, as his slight of hand revealed different coloured masks.

Tai Chi performer Lin Deyuan accompanied by Wu Bin on Chinese drum gave a solo martial arts performance.

The entertainment also included a painter and magic show. It concluded with a chorus of "Happy Birthday".
