HELP Institute Law Olympiad 2009


That's right.....We won.


11th July 2009

Law Olympiad 2009 organized by HELP University College, KL is here again. This competition is hosted once every 2 years. And for the 2nd year in a row, St. Michael's (Team B) emerged as champions. Seriously. No sweat.... (suddenly in the LCLY phase)

Representing St. Michael's Institution was:
Team A - James Foong, Mark Siew, Noel Mano, Kar Fu and Frederick Peirera.
Team B - Nakhieeran, Me, Dahien, Joel Lee and Yugaraj.
Team C - (independents)
Team D - (independents)

Well, the competition was divided into 5 stages which require immense brain power. The first game provides 3 situations of crime in which we have to deliberate who the culprits are and their roles. Quite fun. Next was general knowledge questions. Majority of the questions were quite reasonable as it was well within our understanding.

Third game was what's your verdict. We were given two cases and had to decide whether the person was guilty or innocent and reason why. Most reasonable explanation wins maximum points. Fourth was my personal favourite. Best plea and alibi. Word limit was between 70-100 words. I wrote 425 words. What? It's just so fun with so many ways to build a case.

Finally, a game called reason-able. In debate terms, it's called brain-storming. And how convenient, we're all debaters'. LOL! We were indeed happy when we were declared the winners. But when asked how many of us wanted to become lawyers by the organizers, the irony was that none of us wanted to be lawyers. While others have always dreamed of being a lawyer.

Well, all in all, it was quite an eventful day. We won, got free food and well, at least I got a free file to keep my work and solution papers. YAY! ORGANIZE!!!!
(trust me: My files are overloaded)


Ain't gold but it is heavy. Good paperweight.


And I also managed to get some lighter side photos.

Me and Jane. Check out my medal. (gloat mode)

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.

DAY 1: HEADING THERE

The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…
