Into Every Life a Little Rain Must Fall

Daily notes from my pupillage, which is coming to an end soon. Yay!

D166 (13th September): Rosemary's Bites. Yum yum.

D167: The missing Rolex.

D168: "Where are my rolling papers?"

September 16: Malaysia Day!

D169: Marmalade@BVII.

Over the weekend, I went to Azura & Fariz's wedding, rehearsal, T4YP's Twelth Night, and had a chat with Sam, who's leaving for Exeter.

D170 (20th September): Though this be madness - yet there is method in't.

D171: Shopping for undergarments while being stared at -awkward and funny. Trying not to laugh so that they don't think you're crazy - challenging.

D172: The Talk II.

D173: Decisions, decisions.

D174: I'm green and a little Irish today, aye Arthur?

Sam, all the best in Exeter. I wish I was in your position, starting uni. We'll miss you loads! Keep in touch!

Selamat Hari Malaysia

Dear fellow Malaysians,
Let us move towards unity, peace, equality and prosperity for all, and continue what we had started in 1963. Selamat Hari Malaysia to all Malaysians, wherever you are today.

Shall I Compare Thee? Nay, for it Would Hurt Me More

Oh TM Net, how I do hate thee,
Thy name, a misrepresentation! For thy bands are not broad, but anorexic.
Thy fees a fetter; they be daylight, nay, gov'ment sanctioned robbery!
Thou turnest the joys of YouTube to pain, thou makest photoblogs to be hangmen, and thy download speeds are comparable to a tortoise on stroke from a summer's day.
My country crawls back 10 years because of thee.
The politicians would rather the c'moners stay away from disagreeable blogs, I s'pose.
Vision 2020, oh how it is fogged up in thy shameful claim: Malaysia's No. 1 Internet Provider.

Rest Your Weary Head and Let Your Heart Decide.

Although the past few weeks I have enjoyed days off on Nuzul Quran and Merdeka Day, I am still immensely glad for this Raya Break, because I seriously need rest. Work, theatre, friends, church activities, visitors, family—these have taken up huge amounts of time and energy.

D154 (23rd August): First matter called at Sessions for CM.

D155: 5 Magistrates' files + 1 Sessions file = total bedlam.

D156: Matter settled, trial called off. Anticlimax to the max. Stayed in office till 10.30 for nothing.

D157: Got the talk today.

27th August: Nuzul Quaran. Gone fishing! Woot!

D158 (30th August): Merdeka Eve, in the office at 10.30pm eating McD's. Pathetic, yes, but hey, it's a free country.

D159: Waiting for Godot performed by two Mak Nyah. A surprisingly brilliant production.

D160: Dinner+Pud with my old muse.

D161: Why do litigators always give you work at the last minute? Why?!

D162 (6th September): A true roller coaster of a day.

D163: Uh-oh. Did I inadvertently breach a rule?

D164: KL Courts' Basement flooded today. Hilarity and annoyance ensue in equal measure as court staff run amok to save their cars and stand down matters.

D165: No rest for the wicked.

I've been looking forward to this long weekend...until I was given work to do over the weekend (yes, I'm looking at you, LMY). Already two thirds of it is gone, and I've given up doing every item on the To-Do List I had mentally prepared, just as I knew I would.

Oh well, at least my pupillage is ending soon. Can.not.wait. Woot!

Selamat Hari Raya / Eid Mubarak!

Dear World,
Happy Raya / Eid Mubarak!
Remember, it's your duty to spread love when others spread hate, so go visit your friends this festive season! (Isn't the kuih raya reason enough anyway?).
