My heart skips, skips a beat.
It has definitely been ages since I blog. I almost forgot I actually have a blog. -.-”
Just a quick recap on major events in my life (life-changing events to be exact) which I doubt anyone would be interested in but I couldn’t care less because its my blog anyway and I have the right of freedom of speech which is enshrined under our Federal Constitution, so yeah here goes a brief summary of the past year of my life.
I managed to complete my pupillage (yeay!) and got called to the Bar on the historic date of 12th July 2013. With the help of my friend, Manal (God bless her) I managed to get the well-known and highly reputable Haji Sulaiman to move my call. Huge appreciation to my Master too for spending his precious time and being there to robe me. I am ever so grateful to have such amazing support system especially from my parents, family, colleagues, friends who I can count on and my ex-boyfriend (now my fiance :D) throughout my 9 months of pupillage. Couldn’t have completed this without them.
I tiptoed through but determined on becoming a full-fledged litigator. But of course to be on top you got to learn from the bottom. That is where all the challenges and trials happened. Just to test whether you are able to handle the pressure and take up basically whatever that comes in your way.
Moving on to my first job, I practised in a boutique law firm in the middle of KL, specialising in Employment Law and Industrial Relations. I did not prefer being too specialised in such early phase of my practice. So I left after 3 months to another boutique law firm in Jalan Duta doing general litigation work. I am here until now learning as much as I can. I pretty much hated Company Law during my uni years, the irony is that I’m now doing a lot on corporate litigation (weeps silently). Anyhow, keeping the positive attitude so it’s all good. Okay, enough about work, will blog more about that some other time.
Alhamdulillah for another addition to the family, Nur Nia Qaireena! 😍😍
My fiance was called to the Bar on 4.4.2014 (So jealous that his date is so easy to remember..) So proud of him. May Allah ease his journey and bless him in whatever that he pursues in the future. (Setting up a legal firm together perhaps?)
An official inquiry was made. The first step before the Engagement or Bertunang, is the Merisik. This is where the man will send his family together with a ring to the girl that he intend to marry. There will be a discussion between the families, whether the girl agrees to their proposal etc2. I was so super duper nervous that my heart beats like crazy fast. My fiance’s task was easy, just drop off his family members at my place and waited in the car the whole time. I had to wait in my room, door closed and all. Soo nerve wrecking! Alhamdulillah that went well, after a few days we decided on a date for the Bertunang.
On 17.5.2014, the engagement event was held where extended families and closest friends came to celebrate. Alhamdulillah that went smoothly too. Little did I know that he is the one to put a ring on my finger (not literally him but his Ibu did). Hehehe. InsyaAllah he will do the honour soon! Exact date will be revealed when we are ready. :p Hoping and praying for a smooth journey to a Halal relationship. God willing, till Jannah!
Okay, enough with the updates for now! Will probably post on the progress of preparing for our Big Day soon. Nope, still not a bridezilla yet. 😂
Im awake. So early in the morning. Probably because I’m anxious of preparing for an upcoming trial where I will be assisting a senior associate. Gosh, nerve wrecking! But still too lazy to spend more time with the file when I totally should. Oh well, ramblings must go on.
CAUTION: FULL OF RAMBLINGS AHEAD!
So when it all turned blue and you think that Ya Allah, my day cannot get any worse than this. Then things happened which turned your day around. Like friends who cheered you up without them knowing, a stranger who then became your friend by just a simple hello, and a cat who suddenly passed by and just want some loving. Then coming back home from work to such loving parents who would still wait patiently even after 1am. These little things are pleasures in life and realising that He is always there to comfort me really makes me wonder, what have I done to receive so much love from Him? Its never those material things that made me happy, (except good food) its always those little things. Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, that’s all I can say every time these happened.
Another monologue of the day: “you don’t see the rainbow until the rain is gone”
Life offers so much more, when you start living life, then only life will start giving.
I learnt it the hard way. When I thought my happiness depends on other people and my desires, when they don’t reach expectations, I went nuts. Instead of correcting myself, I started to correct them people which brings a whole lot of emotional pain. Then I started realising that I should stop expecting so much and just had to start giving.
So I started to look at my life in a whole different angle. I started to appreciate life, and all that is in it, and life just couldn’t stop giving me so much, I’d say more than I expected.
Why do you think people that attract you more are the ones who smile at you and not the one who puts on a sour face? That’s exactly how life works. Greet life with a smile, (which means positivity, good attitude, and good akhlak) life will smile back at you for sure. Positivity plays such a HUGE role in turning lives around.
Also, when you still have options, choose wisely, never settle down for something that ain’t gonna settle down for you. No one can be sure of anything, but follow your heart (not desire) and insha Allah you will find the way. 🙂
After case management at High Court KL. Back to da office!
Salam and hello peeps!
So yesterday we had a joyous celebration for Nur Nia Qistina who turned 2 on 21st March 2013!
We did not know where or how to celebrate it this time. So it was a last minute thing where my Mum and Kak Yong decided to have dinner with some of our family members at Hadramawt. Since we brought lil birthday girl out so early, we had lunch first and then treat her to Kids Gym in Great Eastern Mall. She definitely had a blast there. Had a good few rounds catching up with her!
Then after Maghrib we head on out to Hadramawt together with my aunt and cousins! It was impromptu but it was a blast!
May Allah grant this little girl her dreams and wishes! *God knows what she wishes for, hehe ;))
Salam and hello peeps!
I am not that good of a writer, so do bear with me. ;p
Okay so right now I am in the midst of my chambering, and I have approximately two more months before I completed my nine months.
Maybe i’ll just explain a little bit on what chambering is all about before I go any further. It is actually a requirement for us law graduates before being admitted as an advocates and solicitor. So basically without these nine months of training, a law degree will not automatically make us a lawyer. There’s so much more than meets the eye, its not just about going to courts, winning cases and then that’s it. It requires patience, perseverance and hard work! Well, of course, this is not a glamorous profession whatsoever. Forget it if you think it is anywhere near Legally Blonde. ;p
Well, my chambering period has been a quite a roller-coaster ride; meeting deadlines and expectations, grasping the civil procedures as well as the standard conveyancing practices; however all in all was a really great learning experience for me. I sure did not know what i was getting myself into before i decided that this is the road that I wanted to take and the road that I am willing to endure.
But what I can say is that, to future law graduates, choose wisely of what you want to do with your law degree. For me, this is really the time to put that 5 or 6 years of studying and sleepless nights into practice. See what its like for real. Not just on paper or in class and achieving good marks. Challenge yourself and face your fears. If not , you will never know what are your greatest potentials. If in the end you figured that this is not your forte, at least you know that you have tried and experienced it first hand. No regrets!
Till we meet again! Xx
