Anyway that aside, Iím not fond of the firm Iím with (everyoneís unfriendly, area of law is really boring, and I donít think Iím performing well), and itís making me question if I really want to be a lawyer. I have been offered a masters in the uk starting in 2020. Should I just tahan my RLT and Part A and then do my masters and give applying for TCs/jobs in the UK another go? Struggling with SG work culture and not sure if the area of law Iím in right now is the be all end all for me. Feel like Iím being Pigeon holed into liti and am not enjoying it.

Going back to UK seems enticing - buys me time to figure out what I want to do, can do a reverse 360 on my life and settle down there, etc. On the other hand, it seems risky and also means Iíve wasted 1 year doing RLT and Part A. Then again, The firm Iím with said that they canít promise retention so I need a back up plan anyway but feel quite overwhelmed.

Thoughts?????
Ai yah go sug the angmoh lup cheong if you like it so much, don't come here looking to validate what you already want. MC firms hours are no less brutal than big 4, and after UK tax you probably don't take home that much. Life will not be a bed of roses in the UK after brexit and unless your boyfriend allows you to stay in his council housing, rent will also eat into your savings. UK weather sucks, rains everyday, and everyone looking like you just shat in their frontyard.

So really the only variable is the angmoh lup cheong. Noticed family didn't factor in your consideration. Your parents should have just given birth to a piece of char siew instead.
