During Tun Mahathir’s official visit to China between 17 and 21 August, the prime minister got to test out the first ever Proton SUV equipped with the voice command system.
In a video that is circulating online, he was sitting in the driver’s seat while a young lady demonstrated the system named ‘Hi Proton’ to him. The system performed flawlessly, but it’s the lady beside Tun M who captured the attention of netizens because she was surprisingly identified as a Malaysian who’s studying in China!
According to The Star, the beautiful lady named Tan Shu Rin is actually a Johorian who’s majoring in broadcasting at Shanghai’s Fudan University. After completing her studies at Kluang Chung Hwa High School, the 21-year-old student went to China to pursue her tertiary education after getting a full scholarship.
Just one month ago (July 2018), Tan started her internship at Nuance Communications, which is a technology development company in Shanghai that’s currently working with Geely to produce the voice command system.
Just three weeks into her internship, she was given an important task – to demonstrate the system to Tun M at Geely Headquarters.
In an interview with Sinchew, Tan said she was excited when she got the news and began practising for the big day. Since Tun M only had 20 minutes for the demonstration, it was unsure whether Tan would get the chance to shine but she poured her heart and soul into the practice nonetheless.
Luckily, Tan got the shot and she executed her job professionally. Here’s the video.
Although the demo only lasted for two minutes, it still meant the world for Tan as being able to demonstrate a technological product for her own prime minister in a foreign country is not a privilege everyone can afford. Netizens too felt proud seeing how well a UEC student is doing in a foreign country.
We wish Tan all the best for her studies and hopefully, she could come back to serve our country as rebuilding the new Malaysia requires a lot of young talents.
