Date: December 2, 2011
Admission Speech of Miss Chuah Sui Cheing as an Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya
BEFORE TUAN ABANG ISKANDAR BIN ABANG HASHIM (RKKK 1)
If it pleases you, My Lord
I, ALEX CHANG HUEY WAH, appear for the Petitioner, CHUAH SUI CHEING and my learned friends representing the Attorney General, The Bar Council and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee have already been introduced earlier.
If it so pleases Your Lordship, allow me to say a few words to introduce your Petitioner, CHUAH SUI CHEING.
The Petitioner is the youngest daughter of Mr & Mrs Chuah Seong Keng. They are present today.
When Your Petitioner was asked where she read law? the answer was, where else but the University of Reading.
a little bit about Your Petitioner’s personal life. She loves challenges, martial arts and marathons are two things she subscribes to for some life changing experiences.
To make her life more challenging Your Petitioner is a Muay Thai Kickboxer. To practise this type of art, she went through torturous training sessions.
To test her endurance further, she seizes every opportunity to take part in marathons, as a child she was very much inspired by Forest Gump. since Churchill was quoted, why not Forest Gump?
Your Petitioner told me Forest Gump has a special way of interpreting life. He told us,
‘My mother says, Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get until you open it.’
Your Petitioner will open a brand new box of chocolate of an advocate and solicitors today. So I had to ask, why do you need so many trials and tribulations? She paused for a minute and calmly said, to prepare for CLP… The infamous CLP was so tough that she lost 15kg during the course.
The petitioner is also fond of singing; she sang and performed during at the Malaysian Night in her days at the University of Reading.
My Lord, the Petitioner read in the chambers of Ms. Junaidah Abdul Rahim of Messrs Albar & Partners a decision She will never regret as she gained invaluable experience under the expert guidance by not only her Mistress but Mr. Chung Swee Loong, senior partner and legal associates of the firm.
None of the Petitioner’s achievements would have been possible if it were not for the support from her family members. She would like to thank her parents, Chuah Seong Keng & Ng Ah Mooi, for the sacrifices they have made and the opportunities they have given her. The Petitioner appreciates how lucky she is to have such dedicated parents.
Your Petitioner also told me to mention her cousins and aunts for their undying love and support, without which she would not be here today.
To her fan club: Eva, Desmond, TJ, Paul, Dickson, Michele, Sim and all her friends, she would like to thank them for their friendship and continuous support.
Last but not least, to her fellow ‘chambies’ and everyone else at Albar & Partners, she would like to thank them for making her pupillage fun and unforgettable.
My Lord, I believe that the Petitioner’s papers are in order and the relevant bodies have no objections. Wherefore, I humbly pray that the Petitioner be admitted and enrolled as an Advocate and Solicitor of High Court of Malaya.
[Judge grants order]
Much obliged, My Lord
The Pupil Mistress Ms Junaidah Abdul Rahim, tenders her apologies for not being present today. I will crave leave for Miss Natalie Peh Suan Wan, a Partner of the Firm to robe her.
