Rejected; the definition? a: to refuse to accept, consider, submit to, take for some purpose, or use (rejected the suggestion) (reject a manuscript) b: to refuse to hear, receive, or admit : rebuff repel (parents who reject their children) c: to refuse as lover or spouse. I think the best definition to describe what happened to me on Saturday January 12th at Concorde Hotel KL would definitely be... erm, a) ? Yes, I think so too, yeah... The feeling was such a sensational one, t'was unexplainable by words actually, when I got the "Thank you for coming today; you may leave. Try again next time" remark...

No of course the 'sad dog behind the bars' picture has nothing to do with it - well, kind to think of it, erm, it MIGHT have something to do with how I felt that day; the day when I was rejected from joining the world's best airlines, Singapore Airlines. I felt like the solid bars just simply closed in front of me, closing me from entering and be part of the Singapore Airlines family as a flight attendant; maybe I don't have 'it' anymore; maybe, I don't have what it takes to become a flight attendant anymore... or maybe... just maybe, there are better things waiting for me in life, so thats why I didn't got in. Or perhaps, like they always say, things happened for a reason, and that reason was actually not to have me breaking my family's heart into thousand little pieces if I got in to the airlines again. I guess I have to look at it positively I suppose... And so I did...

On Saturday January 12th, 2008 - I attended the Singapore Airlines flight attendant interview held in KL's Concorde; accompannied by Volksie and kW, who were so kind enough to also gave me the confidence and strength to go and walk in for the interview and try my luck. Thanks guys; but sorry I sort of like didn't make it. Prolly I wasn't good enough, or prolly, there are better things awaiting for me soon.

Remember those entries I did on how to face or go for an airline interviews thingy? That it prolly would depend on ones' luck or something like that? Ingat tak? Ha - I guess luck wasn't on my side for that day. Of course I was like wondering "What were these people actually looking for?" OF courseeee I know the answer based on what happened that day; but it still bothers me a bit. But still, I kindda like hoped that I would get it over and done with, and out from my system soon enough. And soon enough it did, as am perfectly ok right now. "Tak der rezeki" I suppose, but still, I bet, that now, if people were to ask me - have you ever been to any other airlines' flight attendant interviews? Sure, I would say I've done Air Asia, Emirates - now I've got Singapore Airlines to add into the list. The first two, so be it I was the one rejecting the offer - only this time, I was the one being rejected... so there, again, I know now how it feels to be rejected. The pain was there but at the same time, I don't have to trouble myself thinking "What am I gonna tell my folks?!" and the issue of "Anak Durhaka" - well, lets just say, prolly that would apply, somewhere, NEXT TIME? ;)

I am not gonna lie - yes, I was disappointed; yes, I was upset. Sebab yang got in that day, compared to me, they were bad in English, couldn't stand still while talking, and furthermore, aiyoh!!! WHAT LOOKS yang they got!!! Compared to me of course. But the thing is again, I suppose, dah rezeki diaorang, kan? Yes - I was upset and all drama and trauma and bla bla bla - I am not gonna lie. Yes I was THIIIIIIIIISSSSSS close of getting in and have my whole life changed and be part of the flyin' people again; buttt whatttodo... no luck luck luck! Hehehehehe. I guess I was all mushy upset and all only for like the first 20 minutes after being rejected; sure I was all talking about it for the whole day, but by mid day I was already chirpy and all with FOOD FOOD FOOD! Owh God so help me please with food! Hiks!

Just before I end this entry of tak der la value of importance sangat pun, I just would like to say this - MALAYS, if u peeps really wanna get into SQ, well, lets just say, it won't be easy, the stakes are high, the requirements are extremely high and above all, its not just about you! It's all about YOUR LUCK as well.. ;) And so you guys may wonder, whats next for LKY? Well...
Taking into considerations of what happened at the SQ Flight Attendant interview on January 12th, 2008 - I would have to say that, no, I might not have what it takes to be part of the SQ team, but I shall not stay low and give up! 2008, will see me roaring again trying to get my feet back into the cabin and flying high again! 2008 will see me try to fly again, and what's next? AK 2008!!!
Owh and I heard Qatar and Etihad pun also tgh looking out for crew members, eh? Hurmmm...

Future is not to be unveil before its time and there’s no way to describe your future, just stay until the end and be strong. It is a God’s secret that no one knows.

All you’ve lost is someone who doesn’t see the potential in you, but on the other hand Singapore Airlines has lost someone who is;

“Kamu lah makluk Tuhan
yang tercipta yang paling sexy
Cuma kamu yang bisa
Membuatku terus mennjerit….auhhh….auhhh…auh….”


Lea tak letak ke dalam resume senarai panjang miss2 yang uols masuk?
Dah… jangan feeling down lagi baik pergi makan………

take care

Anyway, cuba lagi ok Lea, sq really short of crew at the mo, if you try harder, am pretty sure you'll be in...
