a cabin crew fren toe me that they were looking for arse. haha.. but i was booted out at the kebaya round with another gal on 1 dec too.. we were the 2 out of 10, and we walked the fastest.

since every gal who walked the slowest got in, i guess they're looking for poise n elegance?

i probabaly appeared nervous and cant wait to get it done when i was walkin fast. haha


most importantly you have to relax and walk naturally..

i remember when i went for my kebaya round first time i was walking like robot lo.. lol.. the lady was asking me to walk as usual..

it was very funny lo.. keke..

try not to walk too fast.. if you keep failing at the walking, it's either you don't look good in the uniform or there's something wrong with ya walking.. always choose one uniform that;s not too tight or too loose yea..

good to practise in front of the mirror.. get a friend to do it with you and ask her for comments..


thanks venie.. :lol:

haha.. i was telling myself to walk slow after looking at the ladies. but my job has made me so used to walking fast and rushing.. i wasnt conscious of my speed at all.. how sad.. just because of my speed that i got kicked out..

btw, i have a scar on my cheek but its not visible at all unless someone looks at it really closely. will it be a problem at the skin test?

thanks.

yup.. as long as your makeup can cover the scar that will do..

they dun need ppl with perfect flawless skin.. but good makeup coverage will be fine.. me too have some scars and oily t-zone but with the right makeup will do the trick.. :wink:

Hey Togo & salvana..

you mean you all got to wait for everyone to finish their mgmt before they announce the results??

coz for mine is once we're out of the interviewer's room we will know the results on the spot. we don't have the wait for the rest to finish before they announce it.

and for those who din make it, the lady will ask the candidate to go outside and she'll annouce it discreetly.

Am really a newbie to this forum, but all the people here seem to be very helpful and friendly and never the less the devotion to succeed! Especially Venie, really congrat her.

by the way, anyone here went through the 1 to 1 but still waiting for the mgmt round call? i got 2 missed calls yesterday, but they never call me back since then..any advice?


maybe u might wanna ring them up instead.
thats wad i did today. i got a miss call from this no. 6787xxxx.
then i called up another no. that Venie provided to reach the officer who inform her yesterday. Thankfully, she was the one who tried calling me this morning. hence, she asked me about the availibity and so. =)


i tried to ring them back by 6782xxxx which the missed call no. but couldnt get through at all. in that case do u mind to pass me the no. ? :lol:


Cant seem to pm you though...


maybe i am not up to that for you to pm me..btw i received the reply already, she told me the next mgmt round might be on the 26 Dec..long long way to go..

Hey Togo,

How old are you? Why only try for 1 more year? I'm quite concern with the age issue too (turning 26 in coming Jan :-$ ), nonetheless, still going to try for it till they tell me I'm too old haha.

Aletheatan what about you?
And so my journey begins... :)
