Petitioner: Liong Wai How
Petition No.: WA-18-795-06/2016
Date: 26th May, 2017 (Friday)
Venue: Kuala Lumpur High Court
Before Her Ladyship Madam Justice Datuk Su Geok Yiam
If it pleases you, My Lady, Alex Chang Huey Wah, appear for your humble Petitioner Liong Wai How and my learned friends representing the various bodies have already been introduced earlier.
Your Petitioner is the youngest child of his proud parents Mr. Liong Chew Sang and Madam Won Ah Moi.
I crave leave for them to be introduced.
He was raised and educated in a small town called Raub, Pahang. As we all know that is the GOLD mining town of Malaysia. When your Petitioner was young he harboured the wish of striking Gold, not at the Olympics but from the Pahang Rivers near Raub. One Sunday morning, Your young Petitioner went to the River armed with a bucket and a Gold Pan started at 7am prospecting for gold. After 12 diligent hours, he concluded that saw dust and sand dust were the only things he could find.
And of course he caught one famous Pahang River Patin fish for dinner…
From Raub he conveniently moved north along the coast to read Laws in the University Sultan Zainal Abidin in Terengganu. After he was conferred the law degree, Your Petitioner applied to be an attachment student in my chambers, to learn a thing or two about companies winding up. I told him that my learned friend Miss Valerie Yeo Kim Ann is more eminently qualified than myself as his pupil mistress, therefore he went under her wings and completed his pupillage in Messrs J. M. Chong, Vincent Chee & Co.
On this very special occasion, the Petitioner would like to express his gratitude and appreciation to:-
To the most important people in his life, his parents for all these wonderful years;
To his siblings and family members for their encouragement;
To his pupil mistress, my learned friend Miss Valerie Yeo Kim Ann for being his role model;
To everyone from Messrs J. M. Chong, Vincent Chee & Co. for their patience these nine months.
LAW for your Petitioner, stands for land, air and water.
To him, essentially, LAW governs everything around us.
From the moment Your petitioner is admitted to the bar, he understands that he is vested with the holy obligations to preserve protect and uphold the LAW.
My Lady, I verily believe that all papers are in order and that your Petitioner is a fit and proper person, to be admitted and enrolled as an advocate and solicitor of the High Court of Malaya. I believe my learned friends have no objections to this Petition.
Wherefore, My Lady, I pray for an Order in Terms.
I crave leave from Your Ladyship to invite my learned friend, Miss Valerie Yeo Kim Ann, the Petitioner’s pupil mistress to robe your Petitioner.
We are obliged My Lady.
