The Sin Chew Daily reported that a Chinese woman from Kota Kinabalu adopted five Muslim children in the past 20 years. Kindergarten teacher Connie Wong, fondly known as Cikgu Wong, is a Buddhist but she makes sure the children, aged between 11 and 20, practise their faith. They attend religious classes in school and go for Friday prayers. Wong, 59, prepares halal food for them daily. During the holy month of Ramadan, she makes sure they observe fasting.
