I think there is an error in this message, since you use singular ponglu'. So do you think that the word should be treated as plural (and the verb should be luponglu'), or that the word should be treated as singular (and the verb should be ponglu')?
In my opinion, the word should be treated as singular, since it's a name and a foreign word.
