About Kenneth

An organised and dynamic individual, Kenneth Lee loves travelling and believes that travelling is more important than saving for a home.

Born in Kuching, Sarawak on the north coast of the island of Borneo, Kenneth he received his secondary education at SMK Green Road. He later furthered his tertiary education at the University of Tunku Abdul Rahman, which is based in Peninsular Malaysia and graduated with a Bachelor of Communication (1st Class Hons) in Journalism. It was also at the same university that he eventually pursued and was awarded a Master of Communication in 2009.

Kenneth was briefly attached to Malaysia’s largest English daily The Star. Some of his written work while working as a journalist there can be viewed here.

Otherwise, Kenneth has been devotedly serving in the education industry. He was first attached to the Faculty of Arts and Social Science of UTAR for close to two years, before moving on to lecture at the Legenda Education Group (LEG) for about five years.

In 2015, Kenneth decided to take a break from work to travel Asia, only to eventually land himself a teaching job in Chumphon, Thailand. There, he met his current fiancé, Mai.

After two wonderful years in Thailand, Kenneth is currently attached to INTI International College Penang.

Memory Lane of MrDefinite

The history of MrDefinite is dated back to 28 January 2012  – more than a decade ago when the concept of “blog” was still in its infancy. The earliest version of MrDefinite – then known as “FunkyCrib” – took place in the form of Web 1.0 and was hosted on a free server. On 31 December 2004, FunkyCrib was upgraded to Web 2.0 and managed via Blogspot, however with the URL pointed to onyx.cdc.net.my.

On 27 October 2005, FunkyCrib was dropped and replaced by withkenneth.com. However on 15 May 2006, mrdefinite.com was launched and and subsequently replaced withkenneth.com, which was discontinued in 2007.

In Jan 2009, mrdefinite.com was re-positioned as a new blog that put together both online money-making tips and personal pieces. It provided money-related topics on the left, main column of the blog and personal entries under the title of “MrDefinite Personal” on the right.

On 26 May 2009, mrdefinite.com went mobile. Readers surfing via mobile devices were since able to read the site in a simple mini layout. A year later on 19 May 2010, MrDefinite Live Picture was introduced; this feature allowed pictures to be published live to the website using a mobile device.

Two years later, MrDefinite Personal and MrDefinite Live Picture would see a separation from mrdefinite.com to be run under the sub-domain of im.mrdefinite.com.

On 8 November 2013, im.mrdefinite.com was relaunched as mrdefinite.net, which is this very site you are reading now. This site serves as a platform for Kenneth to record his travel logs and opinion pieces. In July 2014, mrdefinite.com found its new owner and is currently managed by another individual not associated with Kenneth.

I’m Ken, a passionate traveller from the exotic island of Borneo. Currently a teacher in a rural town in Southern Thailand, from time to time I share on this blog my experiences teaching the kids and living a laid-back lifestyle here. With a focus on all things Thailand, mrdefinite.net also features a handful of stories about my travel adventures in other Asian countries.
