Very interested in getting the tips via MS from you.
Can you email me at glitter2joycelyn@gmail.com (Sorry for posting my email publicly as I'm desperate!)

Is reading all the tips about being a SQ CC till I'm going dizzy.

Will SIA be holding an interview in Dec? I'm thinking of going in Dec as November is too rushing for me.



haha you look at prev pages. about 1 or 2 pages back. i posted all there. those that i email to the rest include some stuffs about me hahaa like what i'm gonna say ect ect. i dont think there will be any in dec. it's very rush for me too, but i am just going to try. if not.. i cant sleep at night, will get very bothered by the fact that i didnt even make an effort to go lol

Pork, well... =) perhaps you should try when you have more confidence, just like me. i need 4 years to have that much confidence.

I know very minimum Korean. I was intending to pick up that language. But now is really not a good time.

*sigh*

ok - back to jogging for me...

INSENSITIVE!!! I'm 22.6! Hmmph! :cry:



Hey Pork,

don't be upset - just go for it. I was 60kg in June and during my 1 - 1 interview, I was asked "do you know you're a bit on the heavy side?". I admitted and explained etc - got through that round but failed the management round. Well, it sure made me determined to loose some weight...

You never know what you're going to expect if you don't try. GO for this 23rd Nov walk in. Even if you don't make it through all the rounds, it's a good experience! :)

In regards to being a C cup and getting a big size Kebaya > I had previously posted about my own experience - I am only a B cup and already had a hard time finding a top that could fit me! The tops are labelled like " 32", 33", 34" etc while the skirts are either by waist size or M, L. I always just grab the biggest I can find - while there are some lucky girls who need to find the smallest size!

There was also a girl in my previous interview - who had to wear her spag top under the kebaya top (as it didnt fit), but she didnt make it through. She said it was due to a mole on her neck.... hmmm...

Well, don't let all these little things affect you all - just go and try! Just don't wear a push up bra on that day! :wink:

seems liek they always measure shorter than our usual height...

if they measure below 158cm, we can't even go for the interview right?


Hello jlayl !
Don't worry. There will be a tape for you to reach (you can tip-toe). If you can reach and touch the tape, you can go for the 1st round of interview.
I am standing at about 157.5cm . I tried to reach the height of 212cm and I can reach and touch it :D

Actually, I think the killer part (where most girls got rejected) is the 2nd round. The bright spotlight is the killer. lol

Though I have never been to the interview before but I heard about it from my sister. Under the bright spotlight, they can see how good/bad is your complexion. Scary :(

hello chocopie !
Lets not worry about these. Just tell yourself this , " I must do my best for that interview and enjoy the process of the interview."

Because only when you enjoy, you will be more relax and not so tense up
:D

Good luck!
