Those with an ear for music and who are familiar with reading music as well as the concept of guitar playing can teach themselves how to play the ukulele. Unlike the guitar, which involves strumming and plucking, the ukulele is only plucked. The concept of the notes, however, once learned in any type of music is easy to pick up when learning how to play the ukulele.

Ok, next item – electronics. Electronics sales are very high in Singapre. You can find great bargains in Funan the IT Mall or Mustafa at Little India. I suggest you avoid those touristy places like Lucky Plaza or shops along Orchard Road.
