Can We Make a Joke Out of a Lawsuit? Yes No?

This is something that I recapitulated from a Blog.

A pedestrian sued a driver for his dangerous, careless and reckless driving that caused him to be hospitalized for  a week.

The Plaintiff      :  A pedestrian
The Defendant :  A driver

During the closing speech, the advocate for the defendant said:

 During the material time, the defendant drove with caution and attention. He have been driving for 30 years but never done anything that against the traffic rules or involved in any accident, not even ever gotten a traffic summon before this.

The advocate for the Plaintiff retorted: 

Since my learned friend brought up this matter, I must further emphasize that the Plaintiff has been a pedestrian for 70 years and never get crashed by any car before ...

Lame Joke

Early in the morning, my boy messaged me : I am in the hospital now.
I got so anxious and tried to call him but my hand-phone annoyed me by being malfunctioning.
Oh God, Come On Leh?
I managed to call him after a few mins later and he told me :

 "I dabao my breakfast at the hospital just now."

LOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLL ?! So dramatic right? 
Do me a favor,  slap him for gazillion times. 

Done? my turn to do my job-

which is to sayang him. HAHAHA.
 Excuse me for being too sweet. 

Good Night !

Let's talk about the law firm I am working at.The first week was very exhausting, hectic  and exciting at the same time. The former clerk was leaving, so, many ongoing cases were left to me. It was confusing because they were still very new to me. She shared her knowledge that I've to crammed with in a very limited time.

She is a best friend of mine. We were in the same class since primary one until form 5. She is now having schooling spree in Taiwan. Salute her for the fees and costs incurred are solely paid by her own. 
I am assigned to do all kind of work ranging from fighting with the photocopy machine to preparing legal documents. When I am bored, I would do the cleaning too.


1.Photocopying documents and cornering them with proper corners. We've two types of corners:stamped with our pigeon hole number and printed with the firm's name. The ones stamped with pigeon hole number will only be used for litigation cases which means the cases that brought to the courts.

2.Make Corners: Corners refer to the triangular-shaped folded paper that hold the left edge of our document. We would first insert the corners to the edge of the papers and stapler them right on the corner. The Corners are made out of ordinary colour papers with different colours. The papers are cut into small pieces and then folded into triangular shape to perfectly fit into the edge.

3.Filling: So here come the troublesome thing. I've to file documents accordingly into their files and they're so many of them. I've to look for the files at our master cupboard, lawyers' offices and the small cabinet. Sometimes, I would pace back and forth in the office just to search a file.

4.Tame the stupid photocopy machine. Nah this ain't easy. I am now quite professional at it.  There're so many functions that you've to learn and master with. I think it's fun though haha. 

5.Binding. I bind documents too. Once I bind over thousands papers into sets of documents. It took hours because I've to bind the papers bit by bit. It was fun to know how to use the tiny machine to easily open up the ring so that we can easily fit in papers or remove papers into/from the rings.

6. Filling documents to the courts. For litigation cases, every single document needs to be filed in court. So I'll help the lawyers to prepare Preacipes which function as the receipt/invoice/statement for payment purpose together with the cheques/cash and assign our dispatch to file em in the related courts.

7.Servicing documents. Upon filling, I'll prepare the cover letters to be attached with the documents for service. Service here means send out the duly executed and filed documents to the counterparts. ( advocates & defendants/plaintiff)

8.Preparation and execution of documents. I learn to produce legal documents too like tenancy agreement, affidavit, summons and so on. Then call up our clients and commissioner for affirmation.   

9. Adjudication and stamping. Some documents needs to be adjudicated through the official website and then upon approval of the docs, I will print out the notice and send the docs for stamping at the office. 
My former colleague, Betty.

10.Conducting Bankruptcy search, Vehicle Search, Land Search and other related searches.

11.Picking up calls and following up cases through calls and letters.

12.Paying all kind of bills. Nah I only do the paperwork and the calling. The rendering of the bills is done by our dispatch.

13.Sending out the documents by Courier, ordinary post, registered post or A.R Register Post. Each one has its own way.

14.Researching&scrutinizing: I do research on related cases for certain cases. Reported or unreported judgments that written by the judges are needed to support the points or facts that our lawyers intend to point out to the judge. To do this,  I need Caffeine. Research is done by logging into the official websites and looking up the available law books.

15.Ordering stationery and items for the upkeep of office.

16.Witnessing the lawyers showing their amazing and awing skills in the courts.

17. Loaning: So far I fully handled two loan cases. From receiving Letter of Offer to full draw down of the loans, it took months. The whole process involving receiving the LO, adjudicating and stamping, drafting and editing documents, doing amendments, preparing documents, execution of documents, presentation and registration of documents, requesting related documents, conducting land searches and so on.

The End.

I shall proceed my reading of a judgment on an appeal of criminal case by the sentenced defendant- rape& statutory rape. 

Through my blog, I wish to spur anyone who is contemplating to study law to work in a law firm to get suffice exposure and understanding in this field . I always believe that when we're young, we work to glean experience and knowledge but not to earn. I am not given salary but only allowance that only enough to cover my expenses on transportation and meals for my attachment. Don't be picky and get a job!

How would you classify your choices?
Good Bad Important Trivial Once in a life time Shouldn't be missed ...
I would classify mine into Right and Wrong.
To make big decisions is not easy.
It's very burdensome as we know whatever decision we make later on will make a big difference.
To ease the burden of making a choice, I would listen to my deepest feelings.
I am no longer the just-do-it kind of person. I would ponder to make a right choice or decision on big matters.
I want to make a difference with my life. I want to try to live my everyday like there's no tomorrow.
Therefore, I am adhering to the principle of Never Do Something that I Don't Feel Wanting to 
Do. I want to spend my each day without any regret or sadness, even the fragments of 'em.
Everyday is so precious.
Every second is so invaluable.
I'll never let myself to live someone else's life like I would do before.
Spend an hour to watch this video. It'll influence your perceptions towards the world, the way you look at your problems or it would even change your life, entirely. It's so influential .

Education v Business

I was sitting in exhaustion in a bus and trying my best to avoid from having physical contact with a middle aged man beside me who occupied about one and the half of the seat. :/
He stood up and moved to back while mumbling about things that no one could understand. Everyone was looking at him awkwardly carrying bags out of the back seat. I assumed those filled plastic bags were smelly since everyone he passed through covered their noses and bitterly stared at him.
It was so odd when he talked to me and I could say nothing apart from nodding and said yes.
Even weird was that he never stopped talking.
He got down from the bus and another female had his seat then.
Her name was Sandra , aged almost triple of my age but astonishingly looked energetic and attractive.
We started to chat about our jobs, education, family backgrounds and so on.
She told me she worked her ass off to get the trustworthy and secure position in her current working place which is a big business company.
For us who aren't borne from a super rich family, we are very aware of the fact that we've to put in a lot of effort to support and increase the financial stability of our family.
To enjoy life, we've to work independently as there's no one we can rely on other than ourselves.
But then, the contention and satisfaction that we would get can beat everything.
I study my ass off to get a scholarship to pursue my studies and yet there're so many teens out there study like it is nothing because they don't have to work hard to get it so they take 'em for granted. They have forgotten that their parents have to work their asses off to let 'em to study in the colleges.
The fees cost a comb and they make them unworthy.
I would take education as a form of investment for our future. That's why everyone kinda realized that fact and want to get a certificate to have a secured future.
But still, sadly, they're many unemployed graduates out there.
I always wonder that if you spend a lot in education like more than 100 k or something , did you ever think about the fact that you would have spent years to earn back the money you've invested in education?
I always think that if you can get yourself educated or highly educated with the least investment, you'll save and earn a lot more.
The rule of business can be applied here-Low expenses will lead to high profits.

网友说当时CO CHAIRMAN,DR.S.AMIGA宣布叫大家离开要结束集会后警员才利用TEARGAS.因此我和她都为此感到懊恼,都解散了为什么还要利用催泪瓦斯呢?DR.S. AMIGA  ALLEGEDLY来了一句:I COULDN’T CONTROL THE SUPPORTERS.所以有可能有一部分的继续利用暴力不肯离开所以警方才逼不得已利用有着暂时性伤力的催泪瓦斯.就这样也让无辜的人一起中伤。这是一种对作恶的示威者的惩罚,那利用暴力滥用权力的的警员呢?谁来处置他们?(HOME MINISTER: WE’RE INVESTIGATING.
因为在Dataran Merdeka 游行会带来不堪设想的后果,政府已下令让游行示威者在别处游行却被拒绝了,那这又是谁的错呢?如果两方你让一步我让一步也许下场就不会那么糟糕。利用催泪瓦斯是政府的意愿吗?政府的动机是什么?这次游行示威者的动机又是什么?是善是恶?内情又是这么?真相又是什么?我们旁观者什么都不知道凭什么说谁对谁错?凭良心
这都是THE CONSEQUENCES ! 现在大家都纷纷讨论着谁要为此付上责任,你怪我我怪你。是不是怪了其中一方就叫讨回公道?就可以当什么事都没发生?是不是就叫解决此事?
The freedom that we have, to certain extent, is undisputable. We’ve the right to speak up and demonstrate but the privilege comes with terms and conditions. We’ve rules to follow, we’ve regulations to obey. Freedom doesn’t mean we can do anything without thinking the consequences or repercussions. Regarding this assembly, it’s detrimental to our national securities and interests. It’s not easy to achieve the balance between these two aspects with the rights and freedom that Malaysians possess. I wonder after all of these effects or sacrifices, the injuries and damages, is this assembly has achieved its goals? I don’t know and who can actually tell? One thing that can calms us down is that the concerns and submissions that expressed by the Bersih group have been addressed by Parliamentary Select Committee. I hope it would bring out a positive change and improvement for our country. It is a challenge for the authorities to implement the recommendations and if they succeed, this demonstration would at least mean something after it has taken its tolls.
To wrap my shits up, I am on the view that the persons to be blamed are not the entire team of the police force but some of the undisciplined ones. Same goes with the demonstrators, we should not blame the chairman or the entire demonstrators but only some of which aggressive, reckless and irresponsible.(我们不可以偏盖全.) Merely because I believe there’re part of the policemen that intended to care for the welfare of the country and the people. All they wanted was just to play their roles and carry out their duties. I do also believed that part or most of the innocent demonstrators were just intended to demand for a positive change. To most of them, the violence wasn’t intentional at all. But then, there’re always unpredictable side effects of anything.
To the people, we’ve to be grateful for everything that we have. Just like what Dr. Ongkili has said, we should count our blessings as there are not many countries that they could truly call home like Malaysia with all the stability, progress and peace that we enjoy.
If you’re so passionate and enthusiastic about the positive change of our country, don’t show them through irrationality, anger or madness because after all we’re a family. Peacefulness always comes first. We’re civilized people; let’s do things with the correct ways.
『就念在大家是一家人的份上,let bygones be bygones. I hope this could somehow lessen your disappointment my friend. We’ve to always listen to the both sides to before going for the discretion. 我相信两方都有苦衷啊!把那根刺留在心里只是在折磨自己啊,尽早把它给拔掉吧!』
