Fuh fuh fuuuuuhhhhh.
Spider webs all over this blog. Fuuuhh...
Its about time I resurrect my virtual recording of intellectual snapshots again.
What better timing than to do so in the beginning of the new 1435 Hijriyyah Year!
So let's start by testing if this google app for blogger actually works in the first place.
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Rahim!!

I think I think too much.
And I think this is the main reason why I didn't quite enjoy private legal practice.
You see, in a private legal practice, you are required by your client to absorb their legal liabilities. Clients can be really demanding as well... and stingy. Hehe. But that's besides the point.
Coming back to my point of absorbing liabilities. Banks for example, prior to the diabursement of the loan or finance, would require a legal firm to give an undertaking that everything in relation to the loan or finance is in proper order and is valid and enforceable. This is a common practice in all banks in prior to drawdown if an external solicitor is engaged. It is the bank's way of minimising their risk by shifting the requirement to ensure the validity and enforceability to the legal firm.
The idea of shouldering this risk is what I did not enjoy because I think too much. And I would not stop thinking about many different angles of a particular matter to ensure that I have covered all angles. Its really tiring and exhausting. Before you sleep you suddenly remember whether your staff had filed your form34 on time or when the LHDN is going to give their valuation as the expiry date on the MOT is almost expiring... and you have not asked your client for the transfer fee because your client wants the exact figure.
So when I joined this new place, I honestly felt the heavy weight on my poor shoulders lifted almost immediately. It was amazing how that invisible weight could really affect my character and personality.
I was sharing this with the Bride and she confirmed that I looked more cheerful and jovial the moment I left legal practice. Haha.
Be that as it may, u actually learn a lot in private practice if you have really good mentors. I learned a lot from my boss. But I am just not ready to shoulder client's heavy liabilities.
Probably because I think too much... yeah, that must be the case.
I think too much.

How have you been doing lately?
Well, my morning started with a quick trip to the dentist. My filling came off and I had to tell the Dentist the 'hole' story. He did a great job. I have a nice feeling about this filling. haha.
Oh, today marks the final day of my two months 'iddah with my firm. It has been a great 1.5 years here. (Oh, I better edit my profile on this blog).
Usually, those who are leaving would write a very lengthy email to the firm thanking everyone they can remember. Initially, I thought of doing the same but then I realised that I might miss some really important friends who might be extremely sensitive. So I drafted a short and simple farewell email. Below was my email that I sent yesterday:

(Doc-who-whispers is the Bride's new gynie who speaks ever so softly and is super calm. A friend of mine says that he feels that the Doc-who-whispers speaks to herself at times)
Remember I told you all in the previous post that Dot 2 never wants to show his face? Guess what? This time he wanted to make Daddy feel that the chec-up was worthwhile and showed his pouty sleeping face.
Oh, I am also pleased to introduce a new layout for In My Chambers courtesy of the Bride aka the IT Engineer.
A BIG THANK YOU TO THE BRIDE :)
(Harap-harap email invoice dia masuk ke Junk Mail hehehe)
