bond's 4 months (training) plus 18 months. so that equates to 22 months in total. and the contract is 5 years long, inclusive of those 22 months. :)

Abercrombie, you can always come to Vivo after the lion dance, which is usually the first item ma. :P Come la, everyone wants to meet you, you know. ;)

Free trial for diving? I've been thinking of taking up diving, can I just check with you how long is the course going to be for the basic for the shop that you frequent? Hehe don't mind can PM me the name of the shop. Thanks! :)
And so my journey begins... :)

Is it true that u have to be very good in English and zero grammar mistake in order to get in?

I can speak but i admit that my grammar is really terrible, even when i talk..

Well I think they do want people who can speak good English but no need very good English... They wouldn't want the passengers to have a hard time trying to figure out what the cabin crew is trying to say. But zero grammar mistake is abit too much to ask for, it would be more like a preference.

Anyway sometimes they do ask about the command of English language that one possess during interviews. I guess they are more concern with whether you are willing to overcome your weakness and how you are going to overcome it, than to shoot you down if you don't speak good English.

So if your language is not very good, better brush up on it before the interviews. If you keep trying, I'm sure you will improve. :)
And so my journey begins... :)

Scopio124: I think your command of English do not need to be perfect so long you can manage to converse with the interviewer without speaking the "lah"and the "le"

You have to pass medical then can start training. I have heard before that there are people who started flying and got airsick so cannot tahan then quit.
