An 11-year old boy has really caught the media’s attention. This is no ordinary kid…..he is really gifted……and on July 11, he recited one of his poems for Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor at the prime minister’s residence under full media coverage. Due to the wide media coverage, the boy’s blog was unaccessible on July 11 due to bandwidth being exceeded. This boy is Gloson Teh.
And on July 13, he appeared on TV3 ‘s “Malaysia Hari Ini” performing 2 of his poems. His mum and brother also joined him in the show after he had recited his 2 poems.
Gloson started his own blog in July 2008. You can view his blog at http://www.glosonblog.com. And mind you, you can learn quite a lot of tips from him from his blog! At a blog carnival in June this year, he won the first prize in the quiz contest beating contestants much older than him.
Gloson has written over 100 poems and you can view them at http://www.poetrytalents.com. He has even launched his own poetry book “Creative & Funny Poetry For Kids” which you can buy for USD9.97. This might be a good birthday gift for kids.
You can also catch him on YouTube. Just go to YouTube and make a search for Gloson Teh.
I can see a very bright future for Gloson. Hmmm…who knows, he might become the youngest internet millionaire in Malaysia! Keep it up, Gloson!
