Several pounds heavier, a few waistline inches larger, and equally distributed adipose tissues all over the body – in short, two “obviously-I-was-very-fat” years ago, I joined a talent contest. OMFG! Nothing big like that of the American Idol (Thank goodness!). It was more of a social gathering among the people who admire Sitti and bossa nova – The Sittizens. It was the first (and maybe the last) 2010 Sittilympics that was held at Batis Aramin, Lucban, Quezon in the month of May.
Browsing through two-year-old photos, I saw my undesirable self way way back – and to think I had the guts of singing Patty Austin’s “In My Life” in front of everybody like I was a big bar of frozen butter waiting to be melted with shame. haha! I don’t normally sing in front of an audience – it is only during “karaoke nights” that I am quite comfortable with my voice and including my “alone time” in the shower. haha! The rest, I was a complete mess. 😛
To cut the story short, I was crappy when I performed. Yeah. Two “fugly” years ago I was epic – to think the judge of the competition was the singer herself! Hahaha! Boy, I could really remember that humiliating experience – forgetting the lyrics is equally as bad as being off your pitch. That was indeed something to remember. And yes, I suck. hahaha! Good thing I was not laughed at when I ate the words during the performance. That would have been funnier. 🙂 Ciao!
