View Full Version : Thailand Ukulele Fest Day 1

Because my wife is pregnant, I couldn't stay past 6 pm.

Too bad. I was really enjoying the fest.

I'll post some pics and maybe some videos.

I did say Hello to Aldrine and Julia Nunes.

When I was talking to Julia, her uke fell to the ground. I don't think it was my fault but I still felt bad. No, I don't drink so that wasn't any issue.

I met a local uke man who has been swinging around Asia and all points since the 70s. He loved my Kiwaya KWave and wanted to buy it. I told him there's one in FMM.

Tomorrow, I will ask my wife if I can stay the whole show.

I was there also. From 5pm till end of show. First time with live performance of uke's artist - it's wonderful! Take a photograph with Julia and bought a CD with her autograph. I went there alone so don't have a chance to take a picture with many of artists.

Aww man! I am so jealous, maybe next year.
I was a little worried those guys might have been flying thru Japan when the earthquake happened.
Can't wait to see some videos.

I can't upload my sony MTS file into imovie. Damned.

I had a PC with Sony Vegas that crashed a while back. It will take some time to get uploaded.

I know the event organizers were videoing the whole festival so don't worry, there will be better footage in time.

You could just upload directly to youtube.

You could just upload directly to youtube.

Fantastic idea. I had no clue I could do that. Thank you.

Uploads in progress. I'll get some coffee, come back and setup some links.

This first video is a view from the skytrain station at Siam as we are leaving the festival at about 6 pm

I just wanted to capture the overall view of the festival.
