Leong longs to return home from Taiwan

Malaysian singer Fish Leong’s (pic) only wish for the New Year was a chance to return home after being stuck in Taiwan for the past two years, Sin Chew Daily reported.

The Covid-19 pandemic was the reason the Seremban resident had to be apart from her mother for more than two years.

“My wish is to have an ‘Anywhere Door’ which would allow me to spend Chinese New Year in Malaysia while being able to travel to any city instantly to sing for everyone,” she said, making reference to travel portal from the popular children’s series Doraemon.

According to Leong, being unable to be with family members during Chinese New Year made her feel lonely and homesick.

Despite that, she said she was lucky that her son Anderson remained by her side.

The ‘Anywhere Door’ is one of the most frequently used gadgets in Doraemon where the main characters Nobita and Doraemon would use it to travel anywhere instantly.
