Now here’s some information about Pornthip’s academic background, her career and Mahidol University’s status to enlighten a certain lawyer.

Mahidol ranked at 220 (Overall)

According to Ranking Web of World Universities, January 2010, Mahidol is ranked 4th in the Top SE Asia Universities.

Perhaps, Pornthip had meant top 5 in SE Asia. Obviously, none of Malaysian universities is anywhere near Mahidol.

Would appreciate it if somebody can enlighten us with information of the ACADEMIC (hopefully it is not just POLITICAL) credentials of the DPP. I can’t seem to find anything online.

I salute you, Dr Prontip. A woman with more brains and COJONES than the whole MACC team combined.

On another note ignore “K” – he/she is a troll.

You guys support free speech but someone disagrees with you then you start to demonise the person.

So much for Pakatan supporters’ concept of democracy and freedom of speech.

what is wrong with the gomen? First , gomen declares rakyat di dahulukan Then gomen send razak dpp to destroy its crediblity. The purpose of the inquiry is to find the truth of what had caused the death of tbh. Why must razak had to try belittling the competence/qualifications of the good dr pornthip to give a complexion that that she is not good enough to conclude that tbh did not commit suicide?

Not as funny as SELECT, the kangaroo court where the victim is (allegedly) harasssed and demonised while the real culprit is protected and let go.

Remember the classic line, “OMG the real culprit got away” ??

Shanghai Jiao Tong University also has its equally influential rankings of universities worldwide. Chances are that Mahidol University also ranks high on that one. Many of the Thai academicians I meet at conferences are of Chinese ancestry. The Thais have no problem with that. Even some of their recent Prime Ministers are of Chinese ancestry and the Thais also have no problems with that. We in Malaysia (with our backward, race-minded mentality) really need to grow up! As long as the person who holds a top leadership position is clean, hard-working and competent and can improve the welfare of the… Read more »

Perhaps you forgot to add that all Thai Chinese also hve Thai names and that there are no Chinese schools in Thailand.

Would you willing to exchange full meritocracy with full assimilation (ie no cultural identity, no vernacular schools,etc) ?

You can’t have full meritocracy without full integration, you’ll always otherwise be running small fishponds with sub-meritocracy in each. Integration doesn’t mean losing your names in Malaysia – Phua Kai Lit is Phua Kai Lit in Malaysian script. Vernacular schools were okay when your mothers were immigrants, but most young Malaysians’ mothers were Malaysian too. Vernacular schools have to go in return for a single Malaysian identity with no discrimination. I would recommend giving up any organisation that starts with the name of a race or foreign nationality (unless it’s purely a heritage / local office of a foreign organisation)… Read more »

Hi K

Are you disappointed to learn that I (a Malaysian of Chinese ancestry who detests your Gerakan and the MCA) support a national school system where the language of instruction is Malay – with more and more English as the student moves toward the end of secondary education, together with ample opportunities for ALL students to learn languages such as Mandarin Chinese, Tamil, Japanese, French, Spanish etc?

By the way, one can often tell if a Thai citizen has Chinese ancestry – just look at their last name.

Dear K

I also support opening up UiTM to Malaysians from all ethnic groups.
And opening up the pre-u matriculation stream to all (instead of the token numbers of non-Malays in the matriculation stream at present).

You willing to agree with me on these?

For those in the blurr-blurr. Our matriculation is nothing but easy route to local unis. See how many matri-routed uni-students fare in our local university exams. Those from the form six who enter unis are the better ones (no-sweating) in their exams.

It’s stupidity of the highest degree. He has brought disgrace to all Malaysians. None of our universities is ranked among the Top 100 in the world. No Malayian degree is recognised beyond our shore and there comes one man rubbishing the university where this doctor studied in Thailand. The most stupid statement coming from a Malaysian-made “lawyer.”

I was at Mahidol for some time…

The culture there is completely different from Malaysian Universities…it is live and let live policy…no such thing as (sideline) the (minorities), etc…they treat everyone with respect and kindness….In Malaysian Univeresities, th kulit comes first…further, they respect each other and they are taught about respect for elders, life, etc.

And very importantly, they are a stickler for principles…Porntnip is living evidence of that.

Good joke ! Nice try but not everyone’s a fool or a Pakatan fanboy/gal to believe such nonsense.

You expect us to believe that you studied at Mahidol ? LOL.

You have no idea about Thai universities or how they treat their minorities.

I suggest you might as well move to Thailand if you really think so to understand the reality of life in Thailand.

Although I cant be certain myself that I knows every univs in Thailand but I assured you that what Jonathan said is true, at least in my univ. here. I dont know what culture you have in malaysia, but in my country we don’t have the ‘standard for minority’ as such here, unless you’re aliens of courses. Also, Though I’m not the student of Mahidol University myself but here, in Thailand we do acknowledge and highly recognize Mahidol Univ., especially in the field of medicals and biology, at either 1st or 2nd rank, closely with Chulalongkorn Univ. which is the… Read more »

Razak first learn to accord the normal courtesy to a fellow professional, did’nt your mother teach you good manners …especially, one from overseas. You are ill mannered and without class…!

How can Mahidol compare with Lingam’s Inn ~ Bolehland? Abdul Razak brought the house down with his slapsticks whereas Dr Porntip didn’t.

Bolehland’s contribution to the world is to provide free comedy on a daily basis. The comedians are the usual suspects. You know who they are.
