Hi Keng, 

after looking through the source code for a second, I don't think that what you're asking is very easy to implement using the current code base. While we should definetly refactor to allow this kind of mounting, for now you're probably best off using one of those three routes: 

* Use a subdomain, e.g. catalogue.opendata.in.th. 
* Use the deliverance plugin to pipe drupal content through CKAN. This would mean all theming needs to be done in CKAN (very doable), but I will have to move the plugin to the new version of CKAN first: http://bitbucket.org/pudo/ckanextdeliverance
* Mount CKAN at / but make apache serve drupal for 404s. This would mean /package goes to CKAN, /node to Drupal etc. Not a nice setup.
