can your scar be covered fully by the kebaya? if not, i'm afraid that is something they are particular about - scars not able to be covered by the kebaya.. they have several skin checks and all of them have something in common - checking for visible scars..

Dear girl,

skin check will be done during kebaya round & after the jump into the pool.....u can go try it out nevertheless...no harm, at least you wont be sitting here thinking if u can make it anot....even if things did not turn out to what you hope....u tried at least....if you are really into this profession, u may want to go do something about the scar not covered by kebaya..before the next recruitment...some cosmetic surgery or something....but that may incurred some cost... :)

Dear xmischax,

Haha, alright, tkx for the info n encouragement peeps....one last Q...is the skin check done immediately after the water test or they let u change 1st? Cos if tat's the case, the concealer might just wear off makin the scar more visible.... if not i might still have a chance to touch up on the scar to make it less obvious... :D

dear reydevan,

skin check will be done after the pool jump immediately...they wont allow u to change...as they will want to see yr skin & figure more clearly when u r putting on less clothings...best chance for them to scrutinise you!

Chinese speaking crew to make Mandarin PA on flight.

On the other hand, english speaking is also very essential.

They only chose girls who are able to speak good english.
