..i call it 'derma marathon'

Saturday, May 29, 2010

..my derma marathon started today!!! yicks... i think i need to be numb for me not to feel the pain... even though Dra. Madge applied anesthesia on my face, still i can feel the pain... oh btw, i'm talking about the "derm roller and stretching procedure" and those were the things i call 'derma marathon'... oh crap, very expensive procedure indeed but i really badly need it... 'sigh'

..need to get rid of this pimple mark/s on my left cheek.... pls, pls GO AWAY!!!

..yes, yes, yes... this was the pimple mark noticed by the RBA employer... :( the one on my left cheek area! :( that's me when i don't have any make up on my face at all.....pale, pale,pale! good morning everyone! :)

..indeed, a Flight Attendant hopeful should have a clear (oh sooo clear) face... tsk tsk... :( why am i not blessed with a zit-free face??? :( why is it that when i have zit/s, it will leave me a brown mark/spot on my face??? haaayyyyy.. :(

..i decided to have my derma procedure/treatment done by Dra. Majella Arenas of Xensiderm.. :) very nice and supportive dermatologist... i recommend her to you guys... :)

 ..Dra Madge just finished applying anesthesia here... need to wait for 30 minutes for the anesthesia to take effect... :)

 ..i look so serious here??? deep inside i'm praying 'coz i'm so damn nervous with the procedure... saw the fine needles that will roll my face then.... crappy! :-(

..this shots were during the actual procedure... oh gawd, eventhough there's anesthesia, still i felt the pain... terribly painful... :-( sorry for these pictures, yeah i know..bloody...gross ryt?.. yick!

..procedure done! i SURVIVED the first session... yhay! five more sessions to go on the coming weeks... :)

 ..bought these things after... will be needing these sunblock and hypo soap, as well as the other solutions given by YSA Skin Care as recommended by Dra Madge... =)

..for me, i'll take my RBA experience as a "challenge".... :)  if i'm not meant for RBA, then i think and i believe i deserve something much better than that... :) Nothing is impossible with God... :)

..and to tell you, i had a very important message today from God in my FB account...
                   On this day, God wants you know....that there is a time and a season for everything. It may be a time of new beginnings, a time of growth, a time of reaping the harvest of hard work, or a time of rest. Trust this beautiful order. Everything in its time. =)

..perfect timing right?.. :) and i take this message as a SIGN... :) yhay!!! :)

..May God bless us all... :)

LORD, when i lose hope because my plans have come to nothing, help me to remember that Your LOVE is always greater than my disappointments and Your PLANS for my life are always BETTER than my DREAMS... Amen

..my RBA experience

As seen in my previous post, I thought I wasn’t included in the shortlisted candidates for Royal Brunei Airlines… but to my surprise, I received a text message from PERT agency last Tuesday (May 25) at around 9PM informing me to report the next day at 8am in Pan Pacific Hotel for an employer interview. Oh gawd, very very late notice… I was in Baguio then..:(

The next day 8am, I registered my name in the attendance sheet… I reviewed Melissa’s handouts which was given to them the other day, because they said that the exam that will be given during that day would be all about RBA and “geography” stuff… :D haha, goodluck right!?! :D
When the employer came ( I think they were 5 if I remember it right)..they took our height and weight one by one… some who didn’t meet the said height requirement (minimum height btw is 5’3.5”) were told right there and then that “I’m sorry you can’t continue, thanks for trying”…

..And there my turn came, I’m really fortunate enough that I've reached their height requirement… =)

Second stage : 2 sets of exam ( 1st – English/grammar test and 2nd – Geography)… the 1st test was just easy, but the second test I find it hard ‘coz I wasn’t able to review much on the handouts given to them... I just scanned Melissa’s handouts when I reached the hotel… (oh btw, thanks mhel for your handouts…)
After the exam, we were grouped in two… the first batch will stay for their Final interview with the employer.. the second batch were informed to be back at 1:30PM or after lunch… and I belong to the second batch.. =)

When my turn was called… there were 2 ladies in the room (one is currently a cabin crew of RBA)… they asked me of my name and the lady who’s a cabin crew noticed my pimple scar on my left cheek which was really visible at that time… I was instructed to go near her so that she can see it clearly… and the lady asked if where did I get it and if I’m undergoing some derma procedure… and I answered honestly and said “YES” and I’m undergoing some derma procedures right now… and there she told me if how many weeks/months would I need for it to be removed and I again answered “a month for me to complete the whole 6 sessions”… and they talked in another language which I can't understand what they were saying or discussing to each other… after which, the lady cabin crew told me to be back at the agency after a month and they will check again for my face if the pimple scar is already totally gone… and there, they didn’t anymore continue the interview part, and just advised me to call the PERT agency and be back after a month when I finished my derma sessions… I said thank you to them and told them that I’ll be back after a month ‘coz I really want to be a cabin crew for RBA… and the lady cabin crew said with matching a thumbs up sign on her hand “I like your attitude and your motivation..be back after a month”…
Whew! and that was it… the end of my conversation with them… So when I came out of the room, I informed Ma’am Cherry of PERT of what the employer have said.. and she said, okay will just take note of that and she smiled and said be back after a month…
That was it… On my way to the car, I told my dad who assisted me to Pan Pacific Hotel of the whole conversation I had with the employer… and he said, “sige tapusin mo na yung pagpapaderma mo, malay mo naman totoo talaga sinasabe nila na bumalik ka after a month” and “kung hindi man totoo yun marami pang ibang airlines dyan.. may First Champion ka pa db?”.. So there, I remembered again my First Champion (Saudia) thingy… and that one I’m really eyeing to…

And I asked my dad that before we go home, I need to see Dra Madge to inform her of my RBA experience.. I’m glad she understood me very well, and is really willing to help me to finally achieve a clearer face faster, and get rid of that pimple mark left on my left cheek. And so the “derma marathon” will start this Saturday and I need to see her “WEEKLY” for a faster result… grabeee, sakit sa bulsa nito.. go, go, go sa pagpapaganda talaga for that dream job!!! =)

To tell you guys, I’m a bit depressed actually because I wasn’t able to reach the “real interview part” with the employer that day… but because I am "Ms. Brightside", I don’t want to entertatin those bad vibes and I just want to focus on the part that they want me to be back after a month… yeah, in a sense it may be absurd but I am going to try it.. that’s how determined and motivated I am to be a cabin crew… malay natin totoo sinasabe ng RBA db?.. and it’s also one way of improving myself better na rin para next time, clear of pimple mark/s na ang aking face…:)

And now, I’d like to leave you with this verse. Just for us to be reminded again.. =)

A Quick Update

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Since I knew from PEX that there were girls who already received a text message from PERT last Friday, I called the agency just this afternoon to follow up and confirm the status of my application. The reason why I called is because my phones have no signal from the day the girls received a text from PERT which is Friday, ‘til Saturday because I am in Morong, Bataan attending our company’s summer outing. 
Sad to say, I’m not included on the shortlisted candidates who will be having their Final Interview on May 24, 2010… :( So there you go, this is again another thing to be sad about.. From love life depression and now, career depression… oh crap!  :( sad, sad, sad….(grabe na'to ha, super malas ko naman ata these days...huhu)
For those who were so lucky to receive a text from PERT… Good luck to you ladies. How I wish I’m part of those shortlisted candidates…  
Anyways, that’s life… Life goes on… God bless everyone! And may the good Lord bless me as well… :)

Hoping that we will all achieve our dream of flying soon, in His time… :)

my tearjerker song for now! :(
