Congratulation Bang Koma. Your work and your academic degree as PhD from Germany I have full respect, but the lenin-Marx PhD from Chim Phalvarun , nicked name Ah GO, NO respect.

Congratulation Lok Bandit Koma. I am very proud to see a Khmer man with a good heart and put a lot of effort to make a difference in a society. What make life meaningful is not to shy away from helping a fellow human being.
