LOL

By the way I realise one of the girl posted a question unanswered which I'm curious too.

I have a scar at the knee-cap too, so I'm quite worried.

Im interested in going for this Saturday's interview.

This will b my 2nd attempt as I was quite discouraged when I tried the last time, on May 2006.

The 2nd interview at that time was 1-1, I couldnt understand what I answered wrongly or how should I answer :(

The question was:"what will u do if u experience bad service when u go out "

Tricky leh :(


BTW I have not-so-fabulous hips, but medium big chest.

SO worried.. :(

My friend got in, and I lost confidence in myself ./cry


Welcome Fellina! :D Have faith in yourself and let your confidence shine through =)

I've got a scar on the knee cap too! But I think that should be alright as the kebaya covers the knees. :)

I read in the cabin crew thread that they will check before jumping into the water?

May I ask if we bring our swim wear for the test or what?

Maybe Im thinking to far : / :o :-|

You'll have to bring your own swim suit. :)
They will check after the jump, not too sure whether they will check before the jump too

What do they check then? IF the skin check was between kebaya test n water-confidence?

I'm just afraid if I tick 'No' and they find out that i do have a birthmark, it would count as dishonesty isnt it? :(


i am having a dilemma on that as well! except i have a few blemishes and i know i can cover by concealer (i hope gotta go get one) but im not sure if i should tick yes or no. :???:


yah zombofi..same situation..we dont want to look/seem dishonest about our scars...but yet..we don't wish the management to judge us on our tiny flaws... :???:


exactly! i mean if we say yes, they might not reject us immediately but will possibly "extra" scrutinise but then again, if we say no and they discover, then we may be screwed.... arggghhhh anyone who has been thru this before? please advise gloss and me. thanks!


i went to ask a friend abt it who just got into SIA through March's recruitment. She said in her group, there's another girl with scars on her arms. The girl declared the scars, but used concealer on the day of the interview. Oh and the girl got through by the way :)

So maybe we should declare and use concealer too? Especially during the swim test..i'm afraid if we dont declare..once we hit water and the concealer runs.. our little 'lie' will be exposed!




i must say that i too have scars...but..when i when for silkair water confidence test..i use water proof fountation..and not concealer..seriously it worked.when i hit the water and came out of the pool..my scars where all still covered up and in good shape :lol: ..


Wow! Okay thanks banz! Will give it a try..probably practise concealing my birthmark everyday.. haha and perhaps drown my birthmark with whitening lotion :lol:


i would suggest you to go and try revlon foundation..the soft flex comfort technology..its only about 20plus..well i 4 got to say i also have birthmark on my left hand..but its not soo dark..when i use the foundation to cover..it was ok.. :lol: dont worri too much k..


do u think the revlon can cover pigment spots on my hand..dear?




yes y nt!!!!but you must choose the rite tone 4 yr hand n not 4 yr face k..trust me it does..if you think its hard to belive..go get 1 n try it...haha nw i feel like im the promoter 4 revlon.. :lol:

hello girls! i disappear for a few hours to study and you guys totally BOMBED this forum! hahaha.

anyway i want to meet, but maybe not for breakfast. i have a feeling mum would make me eat breakfast with her that day for good luck etc. hurhur.

but i want to queue with you girls! then at least we all have each other for support. we might even go through the rounds together, and having friends around will make it less stressful! :D

i am so so excited for this saturday, prepared all my certs and going for threading tomorrow! zombofi recommended vanessa's so i'm headed there. first time threading eyebrows, whee!

i think we shouldn't worry too much about scars/ pigment etc unless its really obvious; like a phua chu kang mole or something. other than that, i don't see why our natural beauty (birthmarks, moles, etc) should be a disadvantage. as for scars at areas not visible when adorning the kebaya, i doubt they would give it too much notice too. so worry not girls!

all that is standing between you and your dreams is yourself. so bring the BEST you come saturday and chances are, it will be okay. :)

i hope you all make it together... my notice is in december so don't think i'll get to train with you girls even if i get through. :( but its okay, we might fly together someday, and travel together. now wouldn't that be fun! banz and gloss can buy all the revlon products in the world then ;) haha.

all the best girls! 4 MORE DAYS! :lol:
