It’s here! It’s finally here!


Okay, I know I said that I prefer the Lanikai or the Dolphin, but still… IT’S A SOPRANO!!!

And I am freakin’ loving it right now. For once, my teeny tiny fingers can actually do a decent strum of my ever dreaded uku-foe, the E-chord.

Plus I was even able to get it strung with Aquilas! So it sounds so sweet and bright and sunny. Playing it really make me happy, even in my worst days.

I still use my Samick UK-50, but I’m hoping I can get it strung with Lower-G Aquilas. But unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with recent releases of the Red Label (Lower G) Aquilas, so I can’t get them yet.

And for ukulele enthusiast in the Philippines, I was able to get this baby from Ukulele Manila. They sell really nice branded ukuleles like Lanikais, Makala and Kala, and you can buy from them. This particular Makala was on sale the day I bought it. I was lucky enough to have one of their sellers, Sir Jelzon, live close to me, so he was able to deliver it to me via meet up.

Anyway, I am so addicted to this thing that I’m looking for cool songs to play on it. Will post a video soon when I get to play a decent song with my Makala (as insisted by my friend Ivan from Singapore XD).
