Admission Speech of Miss You Pei Chi as an Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya.
If it pleases you, My lady,
ALEX CHANG HUEY WAH, appear for the Petitioner, YOU PEI CHI and my learned friends representing the Attorney General, The Bar Council and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee have already been introduced earlier.
Before I move the court for the usual Order, allow me a few minutes to briefly introduce Your Petitioner to Your Ladyship and all concerned.
Your Petitioner is the 3rd child of Mr & Mrs You Kiam Tiam. Her father is a businessman who is running a construction and furniture business while her mother is a home maker. Both of her parents are proud of the fact that Your petitioner is going to be the second lawyer in the family; the first being Miss You Pei Fung.
Your Petitioner graduated from the Oxford Brookes University, United Kingdom. During her time in the United Kingdom, she travelled widely in and around England.
So I poped the question, of the cities you have been, which one do you like best, she picked Manchester from the likes of Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Paris, Luxemburg, Prague, Vienna, Rome and Venice.
She also told me as a music lover, she paid homage to Mozart at his yellow house in Vienna.
I had to ask, which one is the most romantic city? Venice, she said without any hesitation, but the most handsome men are found in Rome. Please do not ask her if she did it as the Romans do.
After completing her European Tour, Your Petitioner sat for the Certificate in Legal Practice Exams in 2010. Your Petitioner then read and completed her pupilage in the chambers of Mr. Yau Wai Leong of Messrs Chan & Associates. Your Petitioner gained much exposure in Civil and Commercial litigation, having assisted and attended in matters from the Magistrates’ court right up to the Federal Court. She is eternally grateful to Mr Yau. I told her that, what she has been through is more than what most people can ask for.
Your Petitioner would like to take this opportunity to express her gratitude, first and foremost to her parents, who stood by her be it rain shine or for the present monsoon season, the most fashionable disaster, flood. She said her parents are Always there without fail and with no terms and conditions. She also like to thank her siblings especially Sharon, Penny,Ve learn and also teachers,lecturers and
friends who have always been the pillars of support for Your Petitioner.
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 & solicitor of the High Court of Malaya. I also verily believe that my learned friends have no objections to this Petition. Therefore, My Lady, I humbly pray for an order in terms.
Wait for the Order.
Much obliged, My Lady
May I seek leave from this Honourable Court for My learned friend Mr. Yau Wai Leong, the pupil master of Your Petitioner to robe Your Petitioner.
