Piano recital

Kabir has completed close to one year at Furtardo's and last weekend was his first piano recital. He played Yankee Doodle, Sing tu yoo and Jingle bells.

Here's a video showing what the kids did 80% of their awake time in Langkawi (except, of course, Kabu mostly only goofed off in the pool but switched to serious swimming as soon as he found me with a camera)

Biking to school

Kabu's school is a little over 1km from our house. Normally Saurabh or I drop him to school. Today Kabu rode his bicycle to school for the first time (I accompanied him on my own). Hopefully, soon enough we'll all be confident enough to have him commute to and back from school himself.

Just back from a week long vacation to the island of Langkawi, Malaysia. Saurabh had to attend a conference there so we decided to join him and make it a family vacation. The highlights were the great many hours spent in the hotel swimming pool and the beach and outings such as the cable car ride over the thick rainforest, a visit to the underwater world and the boat ride through the mangrove forest with stops at a bat cave (with countless bats sleeping in it) and a fish feeding farm.

The boys have got to an age where it has certainly got much easier to travel though I still tend to stress about their food/mealtimes (mainly for Anurag since he doesn't like to experiment too much).

On a side note: thanks to all the time spent in the pool, Kabir picked up a new stroke (back stroke) and Anurag became comfortable swimming with a float on (he would refuse to let go of me before!).
Pics to come in the next few weeks.
