Warming Up...

This boy of mine is a person who takes time to warm up to new situations. He used to be bold and dared to speak his mind before starting primary school. I am sad to say, attending a Chinese school has sort of killed this bold characters in him. He got reprimanded the most when he was in primary 1 and 2 and that didn't help much with very strict teachers he had at his previous school. He was either brushed off or got reprimanded for asking questions, for pointing out the teachers' mistakes, sad huh?

But still, I have no regrets sending him to a SJKC as this is part and parcel of life.  I believe every type of school has got their pros and cons. My role as his mother is to help him strike a balance and to keep encouraging and motivating him in whatever he does.  :)

Back to my post, it was a public holiday here in Selangor yesterday so we decided to go for karaoke. Hubby didn't get to join us at the eleventh hour as he had to work so yours truly started the ball rolling the moment we checked into the karaoke room. I used to be a karaoke queen okay (Ahem) during my heydays. LOL... I picked up most of my Chinese characters from K-ing and that was eons ago when I was part of Marketing team.

We spent 3 hours there and I snapped a picture of the boy every hour to measure the degree my boy has warmed up to by hour.

First hour there... slowly warming up after my almost 1-hr "solo" concert

2nd hour.... singing with emotions.. slowly but surely
3rd hour... Singing like a pro towards the end of our 3-hr singing stint. 
He likes singing Justin Bieber's Never Say Never.... Pick me up up up....

Same thing happened to my girl. Was a hyper-active livewire when small but after going to a Chinese kindy, she became very quiet, a longer as out-going and social as this day!

I'm trying to get her out of her shell though...slowly, have better self-esteem and be more self-confident.

I really wonder if it was because of what they did in the Chinese kindy...

Ooh, K-session for Ian to loosen up :D

My girl loves karaoke but so far we only brought her once. So, her K-session is in the shower or during bed time.

Just the two of you enjoyed the K. How nice! I like it. I like singing K too.

I look at Ian, I know Wai Mann is a very good chef.

for qiqi, its the opposite. from a shy girl, she became rather daring now. also she loves going to school. probably she goes to the afternoon school where they do not have so much pressure (homework, teacher's attention) compare to those who goes to morning (top classes).
