Ukulele

Ahhh...suddenly i have this urge to get a Ukulele. Don't know why. Just feel like play and sing with it. =P

Some asked me what's ukulele. Something edilble? LOL. Ok, it's just a smaller version of a guitar. I guess the playing is still the same huh. Just that it has 4 strings instead of 6 like guitars.
It's a popular instrument in Hawaii introduced by the Portuguese immigrants then.

Ukelele (Yoo-ke-lay-lee)


Perhaps the actual size of it can be seen clearer in this pic.

Jason Castro (Top4 finalist in Idol last season)


No im not inspired by him at all. Remember my previous post he was so out of my favourites list.
In fact the idea of getting the yoo-ke-la-lee suddenly striked me was when i was browsing for this week's Idol videos on youtube. I stumbled upon a video of Kris Allen in which he sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow with a ukulele.

Somwhere Over the Rainbow by Kris Allen

When i first heard him in the results show, i was like er, this chap is not that good. But when i watched back his performance before the results show, i was like, oooh, i quite like him. LOL. He sounded better in the performance than during the results night.

No clear cut favourite yet so far. Too early to say. Ah, got one actually, Rick Braddy but he didnt make the cut to the top12. Hopefully he will be back in the wild cards. I thought he got the Clay Aiken-ish voice.

Sorry, no better quality of the videos found in youtube. These are the best ones i've got..

Eversince im in Kampar, i've missed a lot of Idols. It's the first time i have missed so much of it as i have never ever missed a single episode since Fantasia Barrino's league, which was Season 3.It's season 8 now. For 5 seasons running consecutively, not even a single episode, and now cant help it, gotta give up some. Sobz...
