My new toy! The Ukulele!

I was never musically inclined, I always joked to my friends that I was tone-deaf, well actually I am not tone-deaf, just that I sing really horribly and basically, I can't really carry a tune.

What possessed me to purchase a Ukulele?

To be honest, it was for frivolous reasons. It was cute, it was quite affordable and it was an impulse buy. The boy was riding to Moon Hotel for my birthday staycation then when I saw Ukulele Movement. (This is not an advertorial)

Explored the shop and I fell in love with the Watermelon Ukulele but it was not a feasible choice, it was >$100 and I couldn't justify buying that to the boy.

We bargained (with him telling me don't buy and me saying I want to buy) and finally we agreed that I could splurge on the cheapest Ukulele there.

A Makala Dolphin. I went for the Soprano and it costs $60ish. (For some reason, I can't seem to remember if it was $58 or $68 or $69). I was debating with the boy on which colour to take and he persuaded me to go for the red. (now I'm wondering if I should have taken a more flamboyant colour!)

Say hello to Lil Red! (Boring name, I know. :/)

As I have no background in music and is the least musically talented person in the whole wide world, I'm having a hard time learning the Uke. My mum has been complaining about the din I've been making and my colleagues nearly gave me death threats when I casually mentioned to them that I had wanted to bring the Uke on a worktrip with them.

Bah.

I love Lil Red and if I give up learning it one day, it shall be a very pretty prop in pictures.

Or I can use it to hit people on the head. 😀
