I, Rozana Meili Bt Abdullah appear for the Petitioner, and my learned friends representing the relevant bodies have been introduced earlier. Your Petitioner is the youngest child of Mr. Chong Swee and Madam Chang Hoi Ling. Your Petitioner’s father is a businessman and her mother is a housewife.
Your Petitioner was conferred a Bachelor of Laws degree, with second class honours, upper division from the University of Northumbria in the United Kingdom in 2008. Your Petitioner then proceeds to obtain her Certificate in Legal Practice.
Your Petitioner has more than one pupil master, she eventually chose to complete her pupilage under the tutelage of my learned friend Alex Chang Huey Wah Esq from Messrs. Alex Chang & Co who is the author/contributors of many publications including the Companies Winding Up Handbook.
As a pupil of Alex Chang Esq, she was encouraged to read a book named “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. There is an interesting chapter called “The Dutch Uncle”, it refers to a person who gives you an honest feedback. She would like to call her master as the Dutch Uncle without hesitation because he taught her not only law and also honest feedback. Thus Mr. Chang was looking after her personal development as well. From Mr. Chang, she realized that language is everything. She told me all this are not taught in the books.
On this memorable day Your Petitioner, she seizes this opportunity to record her appreciation to her parents, Mr. Chong Swee and Madam Chang Hoi Ling, for the endless tender love and care, undivided financial and moral support.
