I Got No Talent

Every time I watch a talent competition, how I wish I was talented like the contestants. How I wish I had a singing voice, how I wish I could dance ever so gracefully across the floor.

I love dance but I have two uncoordinated feet. Would you believe it that I enrolled for ballet at the age of 27? Hilarious. 

That was adult ballet, which is meant for people who actually possess the talent for dance, not bored housewives or burnt out accountants.

When the music comes on, I don't know left from right or up from down. I was a mess. So I gave up (much to the relief of my teacher).

A while back I watched reruns of America's Got Talent 2016. It's entertaining, it's fun. And I fell in love with an act called Malevo.

No, no, don't get me wrong. I am not crazy over those hot Argentinian men, I am crazy over their talent. 

If you have not heard of them and you love dance, you must watch this.


They didn't win or make it to the finals, which was so disappointing.

That's a gripe I have when watching these talent shows, when the truly talented do not get the votes. Fate? Perhaps. 

One more thing before I go. There are artistes who are phenomenal but do not get the accolade they deserve. Maybe what's phenomenal to me is just regular to others.

I wonder if this this guy is as famous as he should be. 


He is nothing to look at but whoa! Wait till you hear him sing.

  3. I applaud your courage for enrolling in ballet classes at 27. I would never have the courage to even try, I am such a chickadee.

  8. i was an american idol addict once, but my favourites rarely won :) yeah, if i could have a talent, it would be something to do with music ... i'd love to be able to play the piano well, but my fingers have never been nimble enough to run over the keyboard properly, despite a few years of piano lessons when i was in school, heh :) anyways, your friends are right ... your talent in cooking is to be admired too! :)

    1. I used to follow American Idol too! Yeah, me too would like some musical talent. I always feel that anyone can cook, if they wanted to. But singing? Ah...that you have to have talent!

  9. I'd love to have talent in singing and dancing too...but, alas, I have none :( I once enrolled in ballroom dancing lessons when I was in my twenties too! ;) My fav talent competitions are/were Dancing with the Stars and American Idol. Your talent is in cooking, of course :)

  14. Hey! Why suddenly got ballet lessons & videos to watch?? I had to look at the blog title again to make sure I was not reading RealGunner's posts which often ran out of fuel. Muahahaha

    I think you were funny to sign up for ballet at 27. Try it again at 50 and you might succeed to dance with the team of ballets.

  16. Seriously, PH... At the age of 27? Why don't you register at the age of 30? Hahaha! Sorry eh, just kidding! Don't take it seriously. But, you know you have another talent - cooking ^_^ That' s good enough. Till now, I myself do not know what kind of talent I have. Membebel- is that considered as a talent too? Hahaha!
