I have a sudden obsession on ukuleles since last night, and I went mad about it today!! I was determined to get my own Ukelele as soon as I can, and yes!! I’ve got my very own ukelele NOW!!!!!!!!!!
I was looking at some wedding stuff last night, till I saw this video with a incredible happy and cheerful background music, and yes, that’s the sound of a ukulele!! I fell in love with it immediately and I plan to play my very own background music on my very own Ukelele for my ‘Save The Date’ video. I started to get obsessed with it after a youtube video: (Jason Mraz) I’m Yours — Sungha Jung and…… oh my god!!! I want my own ukulele!!!!!!
The word “ukulele” is Hawaiian for “jumping flea”. The story goes that a Portuguese immigrant jumped off a ship into the water while playing one, and the Hawaiians watching dubbed him – and the instrument – the ukulele!
What I love about it is the sound of the ukulele, it sounds SO HAPPY!!!! And Look at the Hawaiian in the picture!! Can you see how happy he is when playing on the ukulele??
After some browsing, I came across with these cuties, and I fell in love with them the moment I saw them!! I ADORE the pink one so much and I’ve decided to get this! I’ve already dropped an enquiry on the stock availability of this model with UKULELE MOVEMENT, and they are only open today at 12pm, believe it or not, I gave them a call at 12:02pm and checked on the model. Good news for me!! They have the pink one!! Can’t describe how excited I was and I drove to ukulele movement straight away!!
I have to say I really adore how they look after seen them with my eyes, however they have lost their color after a few strumming, they sound very soft and fake because of the plastic material, and those aren’t cheap!! they cost around S$70+!! Well, this is the cheapest in their shop. Ukelele movement carries hundreds of ukuleles, and the staff was super helpful, he introduced me a lot of other options but the price is getting higher and higher, from S$90-S$200+, which is really out of my budget because I just want to have fun with it, and not going expert with them. After considering, I didn’t buy anything from there, confused by all the choices, and didn’t know which one to get at all!!
I’ve decided to pay a visit to Davis Guitar in the afternoon, and the female staff was super friendly and helpful, she is very pretty too!!! I realized that the price range in Davis Guitar is much cheaper than ukelele movement, and I have plenty choices for under S$100. After several comparisons, I’ve decided to go with the Mantic Soprano with a cute dolphin!!! The best thing about it is that I LOVE it’s bright sound, and it only costed me S$50!!!!! Which is even cheaper than the plastic Makala Dolphins!!
And here is my BABY!!!
My bestie Felicia was accompanying me to buy my ukulele this afternoon, she had no intention of getting an ukulele at all, however she fall in love with them on the spot, and decided to get her own ukulele too! So we have decided to get the same series, mine with a dolphin and hers with a sunflower design. We were SO excited about them and started singing and strumming the moment we stepped onto my car! LOL!!!
I named my ukulele Dolphie, and she named hers Sungie, how lovely!!
The WAR is now ON!!!!
What turns besties into enemies??? The answer is the lovely ukuleles!!!!!
We have started a competition as both of us know nothing about ukeleles, not a single bit!!! We have picked the song “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, and we are going to practice like mad in order to win this competition!!
Should we come up with punishments?
Any Suggestions?? LOLz!!!!!!!!
