It’s Wednesday everyone! So you know what that means – only two more days ’til the weekend! Speaking of the weekend, have you ever wanted to participate in a Guinness Book of World Records event? At the behest of my father, I urge you all to head over to the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center this Saturday (April 18th) for the Ukelele Play-Along World Record Attempt. Last year’s event came up 1,000 people short and my dad is DETERMINED to beat it this year!

Registration for the play-along opens at 9:30am and the event itself will start at 11:30am. The best part is, you don’t even need to know how to play in order to participate – GRAMMY-winning artists Tia Carrere and Daniel Ho will be there to guide you through the chords of Pua I Ka Ua! For those of you who do know how to play, I’ve included a .jpg and a .pdf of the sheet music below.

So if you’re planning on going to the Festival of Books this weekend, stop by the JACCC on your way and grab a snack in Little Tokyo (we highly recommend the fresh red bean cakes from Mitsuru Cafe) before making your way over to USC! See you there…

  1. Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?
    I have no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to start
    my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject but I simply had to ask.
    Many thanks!

    • Hi! Thank you so much for the feedback, we’re so happy you’re enjoying it!

      I think everyone has their own way of blogging, and you can put as much or as little time into it as you want. For me, I’ve found that it’s easiest to draft a couple posts when I have a chunk of free time and schedule them to be published in the future, which relieves some of the pressure of having to generate new content every day. The most important thing is that we picked a subject we love (Los Angeles), which makes it easy to stay invested in the project. I have no experience with programming either, but sites like WordPress, Wix and tumblr are user-friendly and allow you to customize things relatively easily. Hope this helps!
