This is the story of the video
According to a Sin Chew Daily report, Tan Shu Rin is a second-year Malaysian student in Shanghai's Fudan University, who is majoring in broadcasting.
The 21-year-old student, who hails from Kluang, is an intern with Nuance Communications.
Nuance is collaborating with Zhejiang Geely Holding Group to develop the voice command system, one of which would be used for the Malaysian market.
The report quoted Tan stating that she had practiced numerous times with the voice command prior to Mahathir's arrival.
She was also not sure if Mahathir would enter the vehicle she was in, as there were five others as well and was delighted when the premier picked hers.
What was not mentioned in the story was that Shu Rin is a graduate of Chung Hwa High School Kluang.
That's my mother's school. I'm sure she's proud of Shu Rin.
My mom was as pretty as Shu Rin when she was as young as her. She's still beautiful today, okay.
And like my mother, Shu Rin pronounces R properly. Proton, not Ploton.
Otherwise the car windows may not opened.
So, I'm okay with Chinese schools and their graduates. You all can check this blog's archive for that.
By the way, I believe Dr Mahathir must have quite a bit of fun during the visit to Geely's facilities.
As mentioned in the story, the handsome old man was not happy when Geely tied up with Proton back then.
He even said Proton is no longer a Malaysian national car.
Maybe he will change his mind after the visit to Geely.
Well, Dr Mahathir already said that he's now okay that Proton is working with Geely.
Maybe now we don't need to proceed with the third national car and another round of auto industry protectionism.
Seriously, I don't mind Dr Mahathir making a U-turn on this one.
Let's wait and see.
By the way, I'm just glad that it was Dr Mahathir who was with Shu Rin trying out the car....instead of Anwar.
I don't trust Anwar, okay.
