Their children are in the open scout troop of the school which is entirely run by the parents themselves, one of the only few such units managed in such a successful manner.
The song requested for was a very old local scout campfire song titled " Ah Chong Sok"...about a chee cheong fun seller.
Then I spotted Darren Goh who is a present cub-scout and who was also in my Ukulele class in 2007 and 2008. Click here to read about those uke classes. Darren has been one of my most avid ukulele fan among many others. His ukulele has my signature on it. I signalled for him to come forward on stage and introduced him to one and all.
Between Richard and I, we had 4 ukuleles there. So, we passed him one and told him to join us...as a trio.
I had taught Darren quite a few more chords than the others as he showed a genuine passion for the ukulele.
So, he was able to follow and strum along with us without much problem.
Ah Chong Sok is a really cute and funny song and the crowd enjoyed it.
We had much fun doing all the songs and entertaining the many requests. There were people watching us from the upper floors as you can see in the background.
