Whiteheads still got, but visibly smaller. Best of all my makeup can wear at least half day liao. woo! :D

Around the same time, I began to mix 2-3 drops of organic rose hip oil into my day and night moisturizer (can't apply direct coz of my oily skin, too concentrated, will get small breakouts) .. it really makes your skin glow when you wake up in the morning, keeps it moist thruout the day and helps avoid those nasty dry/cake/fineline problems that concealers can cause/worsen :) The one I'm using is "Renew" from Unity Pharmacy.

Hope it helps. :) +U everyone!


hi Mirage Bomb, Cellnique Pro Sebum Gel does work on you? Its kind of exp thou for such a small bottle.

I recently came across this product Neostrata. i think you can browse this product thru www.neoasia.com.sg They have range for blackhead and whitehead. I am workin as promoter at Cosmetic dept. so those beautician used the products and recommended to me.

At first, i tot that i could do more mask by helping me to control the oil turns up more oily but at least my skin is no longer dehydrated.

I have ordered the product from a fren who is working in the company (neostrata). The latest she can pass me is on 27 or 28 Dec. After I try, I will let you know more about it. By the way, for oily and acne prone skin, she recommend me 1, clarifying cleanser, oily skin solution and oil control gel. U can find those 3 product at the website. and most weekly mask, can u use GEL plus. By the way, the product only can get from clinic. its doctor products.

Yeah a lil pricey but works for me, along with my regular beauty regimen.. I'm still open to new products except cleansers/toners so.. lemme know! :D Thanks.

Dear friends, my name is Maximus, 25, male. I went for the walk-in on the 1st of Dec. All rounds of interview including the management were actually conducted on the day itself at the Sheraton Hotel. Think it was because I was one of the earlier batches (reached at 9.15....a bit kiasu....but my sister bugged me up from my bed! :x ).

Thankfully, I managed to pass all rounds and was advised to follow-up on a medical screening a couple days later and also to promptly arrive at the STC at a given date to attend a Pre-Employment Briefing. These series of events took place in the span of a week.

Today, I finally received their call and I am being accepted as a crew! Can't describe how ecstatic I'm feeling right now noh!

Anyways, enough of myself. Reason why I wrote this is to give my gratitude to all of you here. This may be my first post, but it definitely isn't my first visit to this thread.

For the 20 days that I sat and waited for the call, my mind was nearly loosened to the max and I couldn't get on with my life in a normal functional way. But upon arriving at this forum, I realized there are a lot more people like me in this similar predicament- Unstable and freaking out! Hee!

Ok, this is what I've analyze so far. Hope that the info may enlighten a few kind souls out there ya!

-My skin is not perfect and when I say its not perfect, I'm not exactly very good-looking. I applied a little concealer (yes yes...laugh at me... :roll: ) on the day of the walk-in. Simple reason, you've only got one day and one chance to show them what you've got. Why be afraid of mocking from other participants? They are not the interviewers and as much as I care, if they were to put in a little more effort (instead of doing unnecessary staring) into making others feel comfortable around them, I believe they'll be able to do the same to the interviewers and also our future customers!
Bottomline is for those who upon arriving, feel tense just because you think others are staring at you ( it's really irritating! Makes you feel as though my face like still dare to show up!), do your best to calm yourself down. Recite some prayers or even talk to yourself! ( yes...yes...laugh at me again....but it works can!)

-Comfortable. That is a word you want to keep flying around your head. If you were to meet someone for the first time, how would you judge (c'mon lah, don't tell mi you don't judge ok!) that someone? What are his actions that actually pisses you off or makes you feel extremely comfortable around him/her? Try to look around. We walk on the streets and everyday, we see so many different people. Some attracts our attention in a nice way, but some just have this freaking "Kiam Pa!" face can! So take some time to just observe different human behaviors. Don't worry, to proceed into the initial first round, you'll be sitting in a room for at least 2 hours filled with other candidates. Take your time to look around ya!

Appearance, Speech and Posture- Basically, dress well. But don't over-do it. It's not a wet-market, but it's also not meeting the president! Just go Shenton Way and have a look.
We're Asians, so don't speak with a freaking accent like you're born with it! Speak fluently but minus the lah, leh and lohs.
Slight hand gestures are good to comprehend your speech. Keep it within your body width. Practice using your keyboard, just like typing. If you can type, you can gesture. It provides the visual whilst your interviewers are listening to you. Better than staring at your teeth or for my case, my belt! (I don't know why! Thought I didn't zip or something!)
When seated, guys, don't fold legs! Very important! Girls, don't slouch!

Ok, just to conclude (cos I think it quite wordy can!), after everything, if you are a healthy young lady or gentleman, once you manage to clear the management round, the skies are yours.
Why I say so? Cos the doctor who checked me said that when I get accepted, I can come back to the same clinic treatment for my acne skin treatment and the company will pay for it.

See, you have to do your part to package yourself into something that SIA will be confident in grooming, otherwise, why would they spend more than S$10,000 to train very single candidate?

Last but not least, don't try to impress. Be yourself. If you think that you're not up for it, don't even try to go for the interview and disappoint yourself. When you take that first step to go for the interview, YOU YOURSELF is confident enough! It's not a personality test, it's an amazing employment you're trying to get. So do your best and GET IT!

PS. Oh ya, it'll be an advantage to read up on the company's recent events and news. During the interviews, you will stand out if you can compliment you own life experience's with SIA's.
etc. I was asked," What do you think is a flight steward's job scope? Most people will say to serve and help the customers.
This is what I said," As an employee of a certain organization, I'm there to attend to my duty as a customer service ambassador of Singapore Airlines. Also, as and when I'm doning my uniform, any situations that may or may require my assistance in order for the daily operations to go on smoothly, I will be there to render it, may it be soothing a crying child to repairing a broken toilet.

Good luck to all of you! This forum has provided everyone with the key. It's time for you to turn the knob and open the door, and for this case, the door to the world.

I wish for nothing but good health and forever happiness to all of you and your love ones. Take care and god bless!

Hello...

Postby Maximus_miranda » Sat, 22 Dec 2007 12:53 am

Sorry, forgot to add something ah....

For those who have attended the medical weeks or months back and not received any calls yet, fret not. No news from medical means good news. Some of my friends got the call 3 days later after medical and I got it only 2 weeks later. Why? It's all about your availability my dears! Those who got the call earlier can start immediately. I can only commence in Feb, hence, the delay. Come on, must give them a break ah. SIA employees are also human. They're definitely very systematic in terms of splitting everyone into groups to train. Be patient ok? Alamak, holiday somemore can! Hehe!

Nitez!

Aiya.. Last min thingy. Went to learn from a CC near my house, very cheap, only $65 for 12 lessons.

Should consider going to CCs to learn as it is much cheaper and convenient. Some of the students in my class are recommended by friends and travel from Seng Kang all the way to Jurong to learn. My teacher is quite good! :)

Don't throw me down though i can try to float with my lifejacket (pretend only) hehe.. Gan Batte everybody!! :D
