Hmmm.......I won't swear to it but I am sure I saw a girl in a kebaya board the MRT about one stop from the airport a few years ago. :-k

As for increasing the allowance you may be out of luck. The airline provides the girls with a changing room so they can leave the airport in civilian clothes and go home on the MRT. :o

the girl's super brave to do this. haha.. my frens are not so "steady" like the gal plavt mentioned.. guess most stewardesses take the public transport with their hair and make up on, and change at the airport..

(gals from the previous grp would have been done changing when its your turn to do the walk and skin check.)

the kebaya bottom is high waisted, really at your waist kind, not hipsters. haha.. =)

Perhaps you should focus more on the things they are going to ask and what you are going to answer than the size of the kebaya. If you can't even impress them in the 1st round, you won't even get to see the kebaya... Even if one fits into the kebaya nicely, also doesn't mean that they will pass the person for that round.

At the end of the day, just make sure your kebaya is neither too tight nor too loose if it is possible. Too tight then hold your breathe till the round is over, too loose bobian already. Yingying already told you what to do, just get the uniform from the girl (about your size) before your group when she changes out of it. :)

Don't think so much about it, focus on the important things my dear.
And so my journey begins... :)

35% is a lot! Hopefully this is not true, if not the Union will be in for a hard fight. [-o<

Dawns: like wat xanngac says, the kebaya fitting and skin check round dont really have a lot for you to prepare. unless you have some skin problems, maybe you can start to prepare yourself by going to the doctors, facials etc. if not that round is pretty easy to pass if you dont have any major skin problems or exposed scars.. just remember to walk slower and natural though. i got booted out once bcos i walked too fast (if i'm not wrong) you would like to browse through the previous threads about what and how to prepare for the first rounds, 1-1 n mgmt rounds interviews. its alot tougher than the kebaya fitting.

xanngac: how's training? still having cramps anot? haha.. :wink:

I wonder why there are still people who are now in the risk of getting their pay cut despite their company making BIG profit :???: Things are not so rosy as it seems, prices for ammenities and transport have seen an tremendous increase. From the west to the Airport will cost you around $35 one way during peak hour.... end of the day who is the one making most of the $$$ :evil:


This is why the rich gets richer... But then they're expecting profits to be cut due to fuel price increase. If the 35% cut goes through, you won't be seeing long queues for walk-ins after that! Just saying on the practical side :P Although i'm sure many people are not flying for money :)

BTW,is e kebaya v small cut?
i seen e previous pages some girls sae must be quick in chnging. so i wanna knoe hows e size cutting? e kebaya bottom is wearing high-waist or low waist? sorry,so mani questions for you.


I took size M for both top & bottom at STC, it is very tight fitting. Try to get your bottom done before trying on the top, i find it abit hard to wear the bottom due to the tight zipping once you wear the top.

Stick back to your usual size should be fine :D Yupz, like what Yingying & Xanngac had mentioned earlier, focus on your 1-10 & 1-1 is the most impt imo.
