UKEJAM RAYA 2013

SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN !

like previous year, we will organised a ukejam after a week of Raya. so, do join us this coming Saturday at the usual Taman Tasik Titiwangsa (Landmark : Stadium Titiwangsa) for some uke-raya-song with some kuih raya and food. bring everybody down with your most favourite and pretty raya attire - it doesn't have to be baju kurung and baju melayu thou. and also it doesn't mean if you don't have any that you can't come. no worries! just come! its all about Ukulele. raya is just a theme to celebrate together. okay!


don't be shy && don't forget your ukulele ! 

UKE-NITED AS ONE!

MUG x CARES

In the fasting month, doesn't mean we can't do activity due to we can't eat and drink during the day. but in that holy month, we are encourage to do charity work and help the needs.

MUG had been invited by CARES to come by and visit children in Pediatric Ward at University Malaya Medical Center. All the kids there had been diagnosed with Cancer. we are there just to fill in time with some activity and music.

we did some uke-art craft where the kids create their own ukulele with cardboard and decorate it themselves. you never knew how creative the kids are. :)




the kids also did request to us few songs like Najwa Latif's, the famous Gangnam Style and few others korean song, even also 1Malaysia song. we rarely played that but just for the kids, we tried our best. we do play some nursery rhymes that can sing-a-long all together.



on behalf of MUG, we would like to thanks CARES, the volunteers and staff at UMMC. thank you for inviting us and surely we will make some time to do this again with the kids. and not forgetting, dearest MUG members who spend some time cheering up the kids and together make this program happen. 

May God blessed us all and give us good health so that we all can help each other when in need.



 UKE-NITED AS ONE!


a showroom visit to - L.Luthier

Aloha!

first of all, we, MUG committee would like to wish all MUG'ers out there, SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN !

its been a long holiday of Raya and we hope everyone had a good time !

during the month of Ramadhan, i visited L.Luthier showroom for the first time. its not that hard to find, if you familiar with SS2 area in Petaling Jaya. 




"A luthier (/ˈltiər/ loo-ti-ər) is someone who makes or repairs lutes and other string instruments." (wikipedia)

Based on the definition itself, you know that L. Luthier is Malaysian brand of Guitars and Ukuleles. they famous with their very well-known Ukulele Island Model : Tioman, Redang, Sipadan, Langkawi. from laminate to solid top Koa wood. you can only find Concert size ukulele as they most preferred and soon, Tenor size will come to the showroom. Concert size is in between Soprano and Tenor - which i can say, its the most comfortable and suitable size as its not too small nor too big. its just nice.

some model do have pick-up and you can also requested to install a pick-up for your ukes. their selling price is affordable and reasonable especially for Malaysian market. starting at RM200+ to RM300+. if you're a beginner and looking for cheaper yet good quality ukulele, you can find seventone ukulele as low as RM120+.




so, do drop by at their cosy showroom. they open every Monday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm. Closed on Sunday and Public Holiday (but can set appointment for meeting on that day, still.) we hope, more people will support the Malaysian brand of Ukulele and bring up the name to international level and proud to be Malaysian Ukulele Players.
