    Are there any afterthoughts for the 10 completed interviews? Any surprises for anyone?

    I was surprised to learn that Essie is a writer, Ceddie a lawyer, and Kay hates being called Jennie!!!!

    So MANY surprises! Was I surprised with the occupations! I'd have guessed Bella's in marketing, Ced's in IT, kidd's in arts/history, PJ's into computer but NEVER bioinformatics...

    Top 3 Surprising Positions discovered by PJ

    3. From TC's interview, that Happy Kadaw is a conservative creature! The scandal!

    2. expression got her name from "gene expression"! This is something I never dreamed would be the case!

    And now, amid all the surprises, this is certainly the most shocking news of all...

    It was so shockingly random, I tell ya. Perhaps deep down, TC is aspired to be like HK.

    I can't remember any surprises as at now..... (I'm at work....).

    Tinkle Bell, lawyers have the license to kill, but not the paralegals. Although, on many occasions, I have been mistaken for one . Paralegals can't represent their clients like lawyers do.

    My brief history.... (like anyone is interested, eh ): I graduated from a college, specialised in computer hardware and minor programming. While waiting for results, I worked in this photo lab. Unrealisingly, I was there for x years (can't remember). Then maybe curious and thirsty to gain some knowledge in this field, I hopped into this lawfirm and find out how it all works. Life, is so biazzare! I have never give up in arts/graphics though. You need a passion; you need to earn a living too.

    No, I have no plans at all.

    1) I'm too old for that.

    2) I like colours beyond black and white. I love more pictures than more words.

    3) Law and academics hardly interest me. I prefer to follow my heart, my passion.

    Mmm... law is more than black and white, though. That's why it's so frustrating sometimes, and fascinating too.

    Hmmm.... oh yeah! Black (wrong), white (right) and grey (the loophole). It's like the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Actually, it's probably frustrating for me for a different reason. I just don't enjoy the day-in, day-out office job that requires me to deal with sets of papers after papers, interviewing clients, being careful of every single word you let go so as to cover your arse (from dangerous clients (from Civil matters especially) at all times) and ...you know, you just can't run away from that cycle. Maybe the name "lawyer" in other parts of the world is really something. Not here though. Legal profession in where I am, the name is going downhill.

    To the law counsels, the worst enemies are the clients (judges are next). You can get screwed anytime, by your clients (eg. "duh! my lawyer did not advise me of blah blah..". or "You #$*&^! You did not give me proper advise or alert me of the importance of my case! I'm gonna charge you for ^&*^$%"). It's all about shifting the blame. You get backfired by your own client for the slightest mistakes. You get demoralised with that kind of human nature sooner or later.

    It was a good learning process, but enough is enough. I give my blessings to those who wants to be one.

    From computer to law? Wow what a jump!

    I see. Now, may I ask why you decided to switch your career, Junny?

    I know the famous author who wrote "Runaway Jury", "The Appeal" and other legal story titles was a lawyer who became a writer after his legal practice of a few years.

    Yeah, it's unfortunate about the hours, it's more or less 24/7 and you have to worry about potential negligence suits and all. As we progress as a society, we become more aware of our rights and unfortunately, that also means we become a more litigious people as a whole. The law becomes not only a tool to aid, but also tool to extend further harm.

    Judges also started out as lawyers, so they're not often as bad, but they represent another level in the hierarchy and power abuse is not uncommon. The laymen... well, our first resort when anything goes awry is to sue. Right or wrong, it seems lawsuits are becoming the only way to resolve anything authoritatively and with finality, and even then, maybe not. I think it's unfortunate how the profession finds itself mired in all this, but of course, it takes two hands to clap.

    Being a lawyer still holds a certain degree of prestige - people don't slave over law school, LSATs etc for nothing. It's a career a lot of (Asian) parents still want their kids to go into. It's a good profession, but as with all professions, it has its pros and cons.

    I didn't have enough passion. Wasn't smart enough either.

    John Grisham, you mean? I have only read two books - A Time to Kill and The Partner. The former is brilliant, not so sure about the film adaptation. The latter novel is a bit of a drag.

    I have heard that in Canada a jury can acquit a defendant if they feel the the law being applied in a given case is being applied unjustly. It seems that judges and lawyers do not tell juries of this right.

    Thanks. No wonder I can't find. I skip pages and came upon Happy_Kya in page 11 under 'H'. Before Happy_Kya, it's happy_julie94. That's why I didn't look further. Happy Kadaw is in page 9.

    So misleading. Can't see the _ in Happy_Kya when underlined.
