Chuah is from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. She was fortunate to attend a prestigious Chinese public school for a time, but she says that her parents soon put her into homeschooling programs to better prepare her for college abroad.

Early Legal Systems Prior to colonization by western powers, a form of rudimentary, tribal legal system was said to exist on the Peninsula. Although their laws were primitive and unwritten, their organizational abilities were adequate and served as a model for later Malay villages or kampongs.
For example, the head of the village or penghulu was an organizational social structure derived from the Negrito tribe. Although the early peoples of the Malay Peninsula were varied, they shared a similar belief system, which enabled the easy absorption of the Hindu religion, which was to follow.
These early societies were characterized by animism and ancestor worship. Nature and all natural elements were important, as being primarily agriculturalists; they relied heavily on a bonding with nature.
This empire encompassed lands across the Straits of Malacca and parts of Java, including a place north of Palembang in Sumatra called Melayu. This was the kingdom of Srivijaya.
Srivijayan society was known to be both highly civilized and cultured and the kingdom itself a centre of learning. One of the most lasting legacies of this Hindu rule is the system of monarchy.
The concept of kingship is based on the Hindu concept of saktiwhich literally translates into the king having powers, which are not of this realm. During the Malacca Sultanate, this concept evolved into the concept of daulat. The concept of daulat differs from sakti in that the king is not regarded as one having supernatural powers, but the idea of kingship is rooted to those having particular or peculiar characteristics, which separates him from the rest of the ordinary populace.
Hence, this clothed the king, or raja with his right to rule. This concept survived well into and beyond the Malacca Sultanate. Another lasting legacy of Hindu rule is the adat or customary laws they leave behind. Prior to the arrival of the British in Malaya, the Malays and the natives of Sabah and Sarawak, followed their own customs and traditions or adat.
There are two main streams of adat — the adat perpateh and the adat temenggong. Both forms of adat are believed to have originated from Sumatra, especially from the district of Minangkabau. The adat temenggong is patrilineal while the adat perpateh is matrilineal.
The system of administration of the adat temenggong is autocratic, while that of the adat perpateh is democratic. In the administration of civil and criminal law, both forms of adat admit opposing characteristics. For example, in the adat temenggong criminal punishment is on the basis of an eye for an eye, while in the adat perpatehthe emphasis is not so much upon punishment for the offence but upon remedial measures to correct an injustice.
A substantial amount of case law grew around this issue of harta sepencarianor jointly acquired property. This formalization of native customary law ensures its survival through written codes. The customary laws of the Dayaks of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Divisions of Sarawak have been codified in the Tusun Tunggua code of customary law, most of it pertaining to land matters.
In Sabah, native courts are established under the Native Courts Enactment, The Malacca Sultanate The success of Srivijaya as a great trading nation was continued by the new kingdom of Malacca.
