u mean for those who naturally draw eyebrow because they have very light hair nt acceptable??... bt almost all the crew draw eyebrow mah....[/quote]


i think what they meant was...

tattooed- those literally tattooed on, known as WEN MEI, permanent and is usually brown or other colours.

drawn on- like u got no eye brows (shave all) and use pencil to draw a line to replace your brows.

i think those brows that are trimmed and used pencil to elongate or to make it look nicer are not counted.
i trim my brows too and used pencil to make it look better, and had no problems with brows during the interview.

The eyebrow should not be scrawny and they should at least be some "real" eyebrow that can be seen. Drawing eyebrow is to make the eyebrow even and visible. Most importantly, you should not have thin and sparse eyebrow and if you do now, let it grow out before heading to a beautician to shaped them :D

Medical check up is sponsored by SIA and it is done by their panel doctor that is located in Paragon.
Foreigners have to do an extra blood test and chest x ray for work pass application :D

I also do have a friend who was 157cm in height. She was rejected twice at the door and the final try she attempted which was her 3rd, the lady interviewer "close one eye" and allowed her to go for the interview and she passed it with flying colour. Borderline height cases are very considered case to case basis :D
