  1. Hi…

    Good afternoon to you.

    Please be informed here that i have some gossip to share with the auntie and uncle here and this is not a defamation email or sedition letter.

    These was what i heard from a friend of mine…..He said that if you want to obtain a Law Degree ( External Programme only ) in one of Local University and pass CLP exam, it is so easy like “makan kacang putih”.

    The question papers can be obtained via a “channel”. You only required to do is purchase the exam paper, memorised the answers and you will pass it at least a “B”.

    Is that true ??? A friend of mine added : ” I heard it from a friend…friend of mine. Nobody is going to bother the crime act cause nobody will able to trace the “channel”. If you have a few hundred ringgit , you can be a lawyer in the period of 4 years from now. Furthermore, these activities has been happened since the year of 2001. I commented : ” Gosh!…..It is cheap in cost. But where can i find this “channel” ??? “. A friend of mine added :” Once you have registered the law course, someone will approach you somewhere ….somehow. Just save some money now…..who knows they are charging each paper or subject RM200 each. With this RM200, you will get the exam paper in one whole set one month before the exam. You will have enough time to prepare the answer and memorised. You “tidak perlu baca” the whole book lah……

    I said : ” Now, everybody can be a legal adviser”. mmmmmm……..My friend quiestioned : ” Shall we report it to respective party like the university or the CLP board ??? But we don’t have any proof. ” I immediately replied : ” You better don’t talk so loud. Later , both of us kena warn by somebody because being acting as a busybody. ”

    God Bless All of Us…….with no more under table money incident

    I wonder : ” Where can i get to know this “channel” ? ” Could it be the admin staff ? the printer ? or the officer ?

    Nahhhhhhhhh……….i am just have a blank thought. No bad intention here to point the arrow to who it is …..Just a wonder before i go to play my football.
