I am posting this advertisement in favor to a friend who asked  me to help her promote her own dating site. According to her, this is not just an ordinary dating site, this is a "personal matchmaking" site. She was inspired to create such because her lovelife is a living example of this one. She was able to find her match through online dating.  The couple conceptualized the idea as a way of expressing their happiness and their blooming future together.

What makes this different from the others is that, members go through a screening and verification process before they get to be approved. So, NO fake identities & NO Scams. Thus, this is NOT a money-making site. This site is a way of helping men and women from different countries to find their correct companion and fulfill their desire for interracial marriages.

On my personal note, there is nothing wrong of becoming a member and trying out the unconventional way of meeting people, building friendship and finding love at the end. As me being single, available and ready to mingle, I am convinced by my friend to join and be part of the online dating circle. I am always on the go and there is no harm in trying. Who knows maybe through this  I can hear my wedding bells by 2013 and at 30!

 Every time I close my eyes, I have been wishing lately of two things:

My first wish is that I will become a flight attendant of Qatar Airways. I wish that when I sign-off from Star Cruises by next year, the wings of QR will welcome me by then. I hope that I will get the job that I have been dreaming to have. I wish that my next post would be as a cabin crew of Qatar Airlines and jet setting around the globe, and not anymore with Star Cruises as a casino dealer.

As for my second, I also harbor inside my heart that if ever the one mentioned above will not come true and that my career path has no right directions , I just wish that I can find a right man that will truly and dearly love me, a man that can fulfill my happiness and my needs. I have never thought of this before, only recently when I realized that I am no longer 18 but 28. A dear friend and fellow FA aspirant was indeed right. These were Anne’s wishes in the past but just didn’t agree much with her on the “finding-a-man part”. But now, I have been wishing for it as well although in secret. As for my dear friend Anne, it was her dream of finding true love that came true. I hope my mine would be to fulfill the former.

The song from the Carpenters "I NEED TO BE IN LOVE" would perfectly describe what I have been feeling & thinking for the past months. During idle moments, I kept playing this on my mobile phone. I know single life is wonderful, but sometimes the pangs of loneliness would strike me.

I need to be in love

The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know
I used to say "No promises, let's keep it simple"
But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I paid is high enough for me

* I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find
+ So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight
I'm wide awake at 4 a.m. without a friend in sight
I'm hanging on a hope but I'm all right
repeat *
repeat +
repear *

July 4, 2010- Still no news up to this very date. We were supposed to expect it last June 28. I've asked some applicants also if they have information already, they also have no idea.So, I am not the only one who is clueless. Still in waiting mode. :))


Same case with Star Cruises. After our Screening & Impact Interview, still no news as to when the Second Step (HR Exam & final Interview)will be. I think this is their trend because a friend of mine have applied with them before and it was more than month of waitng before they were called for the next step.


July 1, 2010- After my submission from RBA a couple of days ago, I received a text message to report to their office for screening & initial interview. A representative from their MAnila Office came to screened the applicants. My schedule was 9 a.m. but the agent's flight got delayed and she arrived 12 noon. Just imagine the long hours of waiting that I have to endure.
During my turn, my height measured only 5"3 1/2 and I weigh 52 kgs. I was shorter by half inch with their required height and heavier by 1 kilo. :((. However, what concerned the interviewer the most was age because I will be turning 27 this September. To cut the story short, she told me that she will be endorsing my application to their head for approval and if it will be considered since it will still be on September that I'll be 27. Her last words were inspiring to me because she said that she really hope that I'll get the approval and that my age will be considered and she really hope to see me in the final interview to be done by RBA representatives within the month of July. I have this positive feeling that the interviewer liked me maybe because I have answered her questions very well and I came prepared. I just hope & pray that I get the consideration and be able to join the final interview. My feeling for this application is like "I'm floating in the air". Nothing clear yet until I get the notification for the next stage of the screening. Still, I'll invest my positive thoughts for this one.

The past weeks have been very busy for me--- graduate studies, series of job applications, exams and interviews for some of them. I applied for jobs related to my experience in the field of Human Resources and also for other vacancies that hold no relevance with my professional background. It is with this “no relevance” jobs that I am so interested. They are as follows and my status on each of them:

1. Air Philippines

I’ve learned through joanne ( that Airphils is hiring both in Manila & Cebu. Last June 8, I submitted my CV together with Anne, a fellow FA aspirant, at their Mactan office.

June 9- was our scheduled impact interview @ 9 a.m. There were 11 applicants and only 4 of us were successful on that stage (2 boys & 2 girls). Anne and I felt blessed on that day although there’s no assurance yet for us to be hired. At least we made it to the first step. We were just told by their Head that we still have to wait for future advice as to when our HR exam and final interview be. To this date, no advise yet. We just have to stretch our patience.

2. Star Cruises

May 30- It is with Kai ( that I came to know about the cruise ship hiring. I bought a Sunstar copy myself to see the ads personally. Kai & I agreed to apply the following day.

May 31- I went to Magsaysay Shipping, the agency handling the hiring, in the morning. Kai decided to have hers on the afternoon. As a walk-in applicant, I was immediately entertained and was told to take the exam together with the others. After passing the exam & interview, I have to wait for 2 weeks for the orientation schedule and final interview with the employer.

June 17- we received information on this day to report to Magsaysay by 4 p.m. for the orientation. We had a briefing with their HR-Officer regarding the requirements/documents that we have to comply for the final interview such as NBI for sea woman, passport pic & whole body pic with white background, etc… We are to submit everything by June 21 and the final interview is set on June 23.

June 18- I allocated the whole day for the processing of my documents and was able to accomplish them on the same day.

June 19- We were told to be at the Magsaysay office for the mock interview

June 21- I went to Magsaysay office and submitted my documents. After checking, I was told to come at 8 a.m. on June 23, 2010.

June 23- The day came and I was nervous. Two representatives of Star Cruises came and both are Filipina. I believed I screwed up my chance on this day. I just knew it. I got intimidated with the interviewer and nervousness hits me. I wasn’t able to think clearly then. Now, I am not confident with the status of my application. I hope that everything would be alright. Result would come out not later than June 28, 2010. I’ll have to keep my faith on this…

3. Royal Brunei Airlines

June 17- I’ve learned through fellow pexer Tanduri that RBA under Pert Agency will be hiring cabin crews here in Cebu. Fellow FA aspirants Anne, Kai & I decided to grab the opportunity.

June 23- I was planning that after my Cruise ship interview I will proceed immediately to PERT to submit my application. It turns out that my two newly-found friends and fellow cruise ship applicants, Melody & Loren have the same plan as mine. Melody told me to wait for her as she’s not yet done with the interview. It’s around 11 a.m. and the sun is so hot outside. Thank God, Melody had a car. We went to the agency in our full business attire and make-up. The agency staff must have thought that we were so serious with our applications that even if they only required coming in casual attire, we were in our business costumes. Hehehe. The lady even asked me if we all worked in the same company. After the submission, we decided to visit Sto. Nino church and had lunch at La Fortuna. Melody & I exchange numbers and to keep in touch for updates. We also agreed to apply together for QR OD this July if we don’t get to be successful with StarCruises. So my status on this is still waiting for advice for pre-screening & interview.

My greatest dream job really is to become a Cabin Crew for international Airlines. I have applied several times already for QR (5), EK (2), & Oman (1) but all of them were unsuccessful. I know I am not alone on this. However, I am entertaining the option to land a job in the Cruise ship industry as this would still allow me to travel abroad for free and meet people from all walks of life and the salary and benefits is not that bad anyway. I am thinking also that if ever I work in a cruise ship, I may have the chance to apply in OD’s abroad and still pursue my dream for flying. I hope that everything will be be put into place.

I've learned from read2lead ( morning that Qatar Airways will have an Open Day this July. For the 5th time, I'm joining and looking forward in making my cabin crew dream into a reality. I do not care if it's gonna be my 5th, 6th, and so on....Ifever I will not get the golden text/call, which I kinda been immune to it already, I will still try and try until my age expires! hehehe. I will never say NO to the opportunity even if I will get hurt several times. As the Cebuano saying goes, " Ang mag-antos, masantos!". Hehehe. The big question is, when? Only God knows the answer. Probably & hopefully on my 5th try! Let's wait and see when the day comes. I am so looking forward to meet fellow FA aspirants and develop friendship with them. It's the best thing that happened during OD's.
