If it pleases you, My Lord
I, ALEX CHANG HUEY WAH, appear for the Petitioner, YEOH KHEE HING and my learned friends representing the Attorney General, The Bar Council and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee have already been introduced earlier.
The petitioner was born in Kuala Lumpur and is the middle child to Mr. Yeoh Kim Leng and Mdm. Wong Nyoke Pin.
Technically, middle children are those who are born in between two or more siblings. Being born in between is a bigger problem than what we think. They have the middle child syndrome…
From my brief encounter with Your Petitioner, he does not have any of the problems of the Middle Children…
Being born in Kuala Lumpur blessed him the abundance of great food, the petitioner enjoys eating, he lives to eat and hence My Lord the size of the petitioner standing tall before your lordship today is the best testimony of Kuala Lumpur food.
Size does matter, My Lord, as a litigation lawyer in court.
When in England, He liked atmosphere of the English Pubs but he hated the English Soggy tasteless vegetables. If he is forced to name a favourite dish in England, it would be fish and chips with a generous portion of salt and vinegar.
Your Petitioner read law at the University of Aberystwyth, Wales. Subsequently, the petitioner undertook the Bar Vocational Course at the University of West of England and was admitted to the Bar of England and Wales in July 2010. He is also a member of the Honourable Society of Lincolns’ Inn.
Before he was admitted to Lincolns’ Inn, he was already a member of the Pub of England.
The University of Aberystwyth is in Wales, he Loves the countryside of Wales, but he only fell in love with the countryside, therefore forgot to find a Welsh sweetheart.
The petitioner read in the chambers and benefitted from the tutelage and guidance of his Mistress Ms. Theresa Chong, and his mentor, Ms. Liang Cheng Jean of M/s Skrine. He was given the opportunity to learn and explore the field of corporate law which he intends to continue practising in.
On this memorable day, the petitioner would like to express his gratitude to those who have played an important role in his career and his life. First and foremost, he would like to thank his family, especially his parents, for their love, support, and sacrifices they have made for the petitioner in giving him the best opportunities they could.
The Petitioner would also like to convey his heartfelt appreciation to his Mistress Ms. Theresa Chong, and his mentor, Ms. Liang Cheng Jean, for all their guidance and tutelage. The petitioner would also like to thank the partners and lawyers in Messrs Skrine and his fellow pupils for their
company and sweet memories for the last 9 months.
My Lord, the Petitioner is a fit and proper person to be admitted and enrolled as an Advocate and Solicitor. The Petitioner’s papers are in order and there is no objections from the relevant parties to this Petition.
Therefore, My Lord, I humbly pray for an Order in Terms.
(Relevant parties will say no objections and Judge will give order)
