Did You Know M’sians Are Weirdly Talented? Here Are Some Things Only We Dare To Claim 

Just weird Malaysian things.

The diverse talents of Malaysians are internationally recognised. From famed musicians such as P. Ramlee and Dato’ Sudirman to acclaimed actress and Oscar-winner Michelle Yeoh, the evidence is abundant.

But beyond these practical artistic talents, Malaysians are also known for some uniquely quirky talents we showcase daily.

For instance, from weaving multiple languages or dialects into just one sentence, to patiently waiting in line for hours for food or goods and bargaining for a better price for almost everything from the price of fruit at the market to the cost of a taxi ride.

Oh, let’s also not forget how we masterfully cross busy streets with just a commanding wave of the hand.

We are also gifted with the creative art of combining various foods and drinks to create new culinary delights like Neslo, adding cheese to almost everything and anything (before adding the ‘Viral’ tag), and yes, sprinkling Milo powder on noodles and rice!

Just Kidding, Let’s talk about some Malaysian real talents 

Jokes aside, some Malaysians do have jaw-dropping hidden talents that were later showcased on social media. 

Earlier, we’ve covered a girl in her 20s who can finish up one big whole packet of Hup Seng crackers in one meal. What’s more surprising is that she was in a battle with anorexia a few years back, dwindling to just skin and bones.

Now, this young lady who looks decently slim is well-known on social media for eating an extraordinary amount of food.   

We’ve also come across a pak cik who can perfectly juggle skinless coconut balls on the most happening Jonker Street in Malacca.  

Also, did we mention the abang at Mamak who carries more than 20 cups on the table at a time?
