in the case of mythS vs factS...

well... it's hard being a lawyer, yet u attend to no court hearings! susah la nk menjawb bila org tanya... so guys/girls, lets straighten a few thing out... here

myth: all lawyers go to courts.
fact: only those called litigators (lawyers who do litigation be it civil or criminal), attend court matters. most lawyers, doing conveyancing (property matter – jual beli umah etc.) n corporate lawyers who attend to inter companies transactions are not required to do so. we draft things and not fight over the matter. Kalu pegi pun, just ntok lodgement of stuffs. unless you do all three la kan.

myth: lawyers only wear black n white.
fact: sori, to disappoint, we still have colours on our shirts! Fancy one at times... so, yes, we can still wear the Roul shirts you intend to give us for presents... he he he. we only wear black n whites when appearing in court... and no, we no longer wear wigs! Plus, robes are usually worn only in the High Courts or those courts ranking higher (Appeal Court n Federal Court that is).

myth: all lawyers handle (at least) criminal cases.
facts: no we don’t... not all doctors are neuro surgeon ok!

n plus, whatever you do in life, its not what your profession that counts its your self satisfaction, which wakes you up smiling to the office!!!

hmm... baru2 ni... got the chance of having a thingy ma jinghy called reunion with my closest circle of friends... dkt PD lagi tuh... though tak smua leh dtg, memori2 lama yg tersorot - mmg breathtaking! so i'm contributing this post to 'em... mostly on why i'll be missing them... as much as the waves misses the shores...

nadeu - the longest companion eva! skolah n U skali! mmg takde muke lain dh... kalu aku jln takde dia, musti org tanyer, 'nader mana?' and vice versa. hmmm... what i'll miss bout him is... his resourcefulnes (sheque, 2007, PD). Slalu menyuply keperluan asas bla kta jumpa2. ada 2 degree oooo.. he's now chmbrin' at zain.

yeop - jugak the other fren i keep trying to loose dr skolah... tp unsuccessful. talkative by nature n 'penyayang' (self proclaimed). i sure won't miss him... dhla keje skali... satu opis... ym pun asyek ngan dia... I'm so (all) over him... ha ha ha (euwww!!). lawyer intellectual property yg sebok diet la nih!

sudin - new found fren kt U. good at cooking (walau mngambil masa ntok menghidang nasi goreng ayam bwt diriku) n pandai melawak (not to mention, presiden seumo idup kelab pekak!). i'll surely miss his jokes n pekakness. he's now chmbrin' at zain (as well)

sheque - nih lg sorang... dr skolah rendah kenai! dh lemas k! secretive but yet revealing when you know which button to push. what i'll miss bout him is... his wacko ideas n out of this world 'lists'. and all the small talks. auditor now, accountant in the future, insyallah

joxer - though masuk U skali, tp different course. probably miss his provocatice thoughts n high pitch comments. master students now... pemikir AGUNG in the future?

ixar - jauh terbuang di MMU (so he thought). cute n bubly... yet emotional n opinionated... miss his naughty ideas n 'gengsterism'... suke lead org wt jahat... tp sronot... 'muhasabh diri' konon! finishing his master... animated character in the making (more of a spongebob rather) ha ha ha

nodeng - ustaz among us! skrg tgh mendidik ank bangsa back at his homeplace, gannu senyum sokmo... miss his naivety(if there's such a word!). elok2 ek ngajor bebudak tuh...

yemza - pegi UITM pas skolah. tp still keep in touch. full of own thoughts. teman se'merapu'an. miss ke'kitnel'annya! working in a financial institution now whilst finishing his professional course.

tobey - antara yg dh lama tak jumpa. mulut ya rabbi... tmn berperang ku. rindu laseran mu... in a way, melatih aku ntok menjawab laser2an org... ha ha ha. keje ngan Islamic publication la nih... hmmm

zali - ni lg jauh tercampak nun jauh ke selatan! archie! miss his creativeness. mewarnai n menceriakn buku otograp smua org. tak tau la apa jd la nih... mmg nk kna terjah lagi kalu nk tau perkembangan... miss him the most! sbb dia antara yg rapat dulu, tp yg plg jauh terpisah skrg...

for all u guyzs... FRANCE

how can u have friends and stay friends?

lepas dh smkn tua ni, I realise, it's not just hard to make friends (getting all the trust and those friendship qualities instilled) but keeping one as well. masa zaman sek. men. (mind you that I go to 2 different schools), not just keeping track of friends from the old schools were hard enough... making new friends at the new school is nothing but an uphill task! lucky I got 10 best friends at the end! but sticking to them up to today... is yet another journey.

in the university, again, a new circle(s) of friends is a must have. nasib baik some of those familiar faces back at school (both 2 schools), went to the same U as I did... so, manageable la skek! everything is a perfect picture (at that time)! on graduating, new sets of friends (and foes) and alliances were formed (alhamdulillah).

dan skrg, di tmpt keje... new friends emerged! but the problems remains... keeping them (plus the old ones) as friend is yet another process... n through that long process - some vanishes - some stays - some takes time to dine or lunch - n gladly, some loves the idea of a reunion. it is sad thinking that your 'collection' of friends might disappear one day!

however tricky it is, having friends is always a blessing... to friends now and the future... I hope that our friendship last n will forever stay... because friends, in a way are family... esp, those you bagged since your adolescent!!

p/s: nadeu, azmey, yeop, ixar, joxer n nodeng... 2 days n counting... cant’ wait!
