Mra. Lee, 49, spoke to this reporter about the woman's repeated efforts to sabotage her dok-pok-i. "At first it was a game. When I wasn't looking, she would pour a pitcher of water into my perfect rice cakes. I would hit her, fake a little laughter and return the trick. But then she started with the gasoline. She couldn't stand that the kids preferred my tok-pok-i to hers. She just burned with jealousy."
