Our “best and brightest” top scoring Malaysian student who qualified for a Singapore scholarship will make international news headlines when this case goes to court.
Below: Subscribers’ comments in today’s Malaysiakini article on former National University of Singapore (NUS) student Alvin and his “professional colleague” Vivian.

Alvivi “may be practising fasting” … urm, praticising fasting like the DAP Serdang MP Doctor Ong Kian Ming?
A Malaysiakini commenter ‘What4’ contends that bak kut teh can be “kambing, ayam, lembu”.
Now it is Umno which has to “prove that bak kut teh on the picture is made from pork”, remarks another.
Another commenter suggests that the bak kut “they ate was really halal” while a ‘LogicalMalaysian’ said that since Alvivi had displayed the halal logo, the dish must really be chicken bak kut teh.
‘Franky’ commented that the daging in the Alvivi greeting could also mean cow or goat meat, and responding to Franky, one ‘kfcman’ proposed that it should be the bak kut teh outlet that is charged instead.
Aiyah, why Umno supporters are super duper touchy one …
Now you’ve made the Malaysiakini crowd think BN gomen only want to make Alvivi “the scapegoat” lah.
Everyone is asked to look at the name of the restaurant which one Malaysiakini reader claims is called ‘Syed’.
The subscriber going by the handle ‘MyFoot’ further claims that since ‘Syed’ is a Malay restaurant, the meat contained in the bak kut teh serving must really be something other than pork.
“So what’s all the fuss about?”
