Ian Rafique Showing His Skills @ Reading

Papa has been wanting to capture this video for quite sometime as Ian has been reading his Alphabets eversince he was 19-month old. Now moving on to bigger things like couplets and phrases and problem solving. I guess months of hardwork on BrillKids System, Your Baby Can Read and songs downloaded on my iphone did the trick. Well done boy.. Papa loves you..

Holidaying in Penang

Ian was such a good sport when we visited Penang. We bunked at Hard Rock Hotel Penang and it was a superb. But Ian was too afraid to play at the pool. First time saw Mama wearing a swimming suit..hehe..

Genius Ian..

This is what Papa has been striving for all these while. Papa had wanted Ian to be able to read independently by the age of 2. But Papa is glad to be proven wrong when Ian already displayed his reading skills by the age of 20 months. There are four months to go. Ian will say the word just by looking the word (without any pictures). His favourite word is cat (or eyeow), rabbit, train, bus, toes, eyes, ear, hair, nose, mouth, car and lots of others. He has also memorised his Alphabets and numbers from 1 to 12. Good boy. Papa always prays for your success boy. I hope he can read beyond phrases by the time he is 2.

I guess this is a combination of Brillkids' Little Reader, Little Maths and VCDs that Papa bought for him as well as flashcards that Papa made his own. Congrats Ian..mmwaahh.. Papa loves you so much...

First Day at Pre-School @Insight Kids Ampang..

Today is Ian's first day at his pre-school (5/1/2011). Class started at 9am. Papa and Mama were very nervous. Like always every time Ian started with his new caretaker or au pair. Ian joined Taska Raniya when he was close to 1 year old. Now he's about 20 months old. At INSIGHT KIDS AMPANG, Ian is the only student for the first week as his friend will only register next week. So he's got full attention of his teacher to himself. Mama said Ian learned about Alphabet and Art on his first day. Whatever it is Papa will always  reinforce the learning at home. Ian had lovely teacher called Ming. Hope it all works out for him.
