    Smile Hi from Dublin, Ireland

    Hi everyone, I am new here. I have been spying this forum for a while now and have finally registered.
    I am a total beginner, just got my first ukulele (a cheapy Mahalo purple) and cannot NOT play it every single day. I have played piano for 6 years when I was a kid, so I know music theory and the like. I wanted to learn guitar when I was a teenager but my mum thought it is rebellious and wouldn't buy me a guitar.
    But now I realise ukulele is even more rebellious! If being rebellious means being different!
    Soon enough, I also discover that ukulele players are very special, they are not pretentious, they are not 'stereotype ukulele player', if you see what I mean. EVERYONE can play ukulele, it is a cool community.
    No, my mum doesn't know I play ukulele yet, hey, I am a 30 year old married woman, I am not telling!

    Well yes and no. I am not actually Irish, I am originally from Hong Kong, my husband is French Canadian, and we lived in France for some years, so we are eating a mix of different things most of the time. (Irish breakfast with chinese noodle, anyone?)

    Though, Irish people do eat a lot of potato. When I first arrived to Ireland, I was in total shock of the big selection of different kinds of potatoes in supermarkets. There are at least 10 kinds in my local supermarket. One for bake, one for fry, one for making chips... (not chips in the N. American sense but French fries. My Canadian man and I got mixed up a lot at the beginning, e.g. we could be in a convenient store and ask where the packet of chips are, the man would be looking at us going 'we don't sell chips here...' then we are like, 'oh sorry, I meant crisps...')

    So yes and no, I don't eat a lot of potatoes every day, but the Irish generally do, I believe.

    Are you sure? You remind me of a gal from County Cork of the Fahey clan. J/K
    How difficult is it to find good quality rice there? When I lived in Idaho, US I had to drive 125 miles for Rice and shoyu.
