I tink u made a mistake. For my round, 4 out of 10 were selected to the 2nd round. Even though I made it to the 2nd round which is the 1-2-1 interview, I did not pull through. I tink SIA just slammed the door on me. Haiz. The whole interview was on my teeth. The interviewer was a nice and friendly lady who started off by asking me whether had i visited a dentist and wat did the dentist say? I told her the dentist had told me to pluck off 4 of my teeth in order for me to put braces. She asked me how long the process take? So I told her the process took a few weeks to get it done. She said she can't let me through as the third round is nxt week. She said that even if she let me through this round, I will definitely get kick out in the the third round cos they will be v strict on appearance, skin conditions and teeth fr dat round onwards. So I was like 'begging' her to gimme a chance to get into the third round cos I nv try and I will nv know. She told me no point as she is a regular at this n she knew it that I definitely couldn't get it far cos of my teeth. She also said that cos my problem is pretty straight-forward dat's y she tell me head-on. She asked me to do something abt my teeth and try again cos there are going to be alot of recruitment drives coming up these few mths.
So what??? Invisible braces are so expensive, how am I able to do it when I don have $$$??? I asked other interviewees and they feel that my teeth are not that obvious. Maybe they are looking for a perfect smile. Actually b4 i try for SIA, I sort of know that my crooked teeth will be a big prob n I REALLY HATE MY TEETH NOW!!! I wanted to put on a normal braces a few mths bk but i also noe if i put on, i have to wait for a few years b4 i can try for any airlines again. I feel like plucking all my teeth out nw. I was so sad n demoralised after the whole thing. Wonder I shld go for another round again n see whether the same prob still occur or to put on an invisible braces and try again (i might nd to borrow $$$ as the cost are abit ex) or just put on a normal metal braces n wait for 2 or 3 years b4 applying again??? Shit man. Stupid teeth.
Nevertheless, I would like to congrat to Jianling, Tricia, Wawa n those who make it yesterday. Good luck for ur nxt round. I will be waiting for all ur good news. Really v glad to know all of u, Julie, Careen, Violet, Josephine,Amber. . .Esp Julie...Tks for ur encouragement all these while. U must try again nxt time ok???I have faith in you. It was nice chatting with u, careen n violet the whole afternoon all things under the sun.
After my first-attempt yesterday, I realise that U just have to be yourself n don't be nervous n have confidence.
Please fret not about your teeth problem. I have a friend who has crooked teeth and she has her teeth fixed (straighten with almost perfect smile) in only 2 weeks time. Its something like what you saw in the extreme makeover shows. Its like comestic surgery for your teeth. As for the cost, it depends how many teeth looks crooked. For instance, my friend had 6 tooth fixed and each tooth cost $700. So total is ard $4200. However, my frd had a citibank credit card, so she can pay by installment of 12 mths interest free. Now, her smile and teeth is so nice that i don't even notice that she had gone through some "plastic surgery". But one thing to note is that, it will last about 15 to 20 years. Of course depending whether you noe how to take care of your teeth.
I am not advertising for anyone here. My point is, braces are not the only solution for straight teeth. True, braces are permanent. Bt u have to extract some tooth and bear with it for 2 years. Bt this one is only 2 weeks/ Only factor is the cost.
Hope the information from my frd helps. Don't be disheartened, try again. [/quote]
Congrats and thank so much for ur info. I tink it's a huge sum without installment as i have quite many teeth to tackle with. Erm...Do u mind if u can actually PM me ur msn email??? so that i can find out more fr u??? Anyway don't tink so much abt ur English, it is definitely a factor that can be improve on with practice and consistency.
