'Singapore Girl' Photos

My apologies if this has already been posted, but I came across a WebShots album this afternoon with some great photos of the 'Singapore Girl' training process. Serves as a nice departure from the 'robotic' mentality that people sometimes complain about.

Hehe. No, actually, "Singapore Girl" does not aptly describe my particular predilection. I found the site while searching Webshots for SQ photos.


Also note- "Estelleho" links to a similar album of photos at this address:

I guess I'm not really understanding your implication. These are just a couple of interesting links about the SQ F/A training process.

Incidentally, someone at Airliners.net said that USAToday(?) had done an indepth story about SQ cabin crew. And then a bunch of people posted historical photos of SQ uniforms.

Talking

And perhaps you'dd like to know that each and every Sarong Kebaya is tailor made to fit each and every girl specific to her very exact measurements! ie one girl's uniform can't fit another!

And these are the real uniforms.. .not like the tourist knock-off's you find along Orchard Road!

Optional? They have a "recommended" one

And they have been known to be suspended from flying duties if they get a little too plump for those fitted uniforms before the next year's fitting comes aorund...

Do the SQ girls get gym memberships on the job? It must require quite a bit of diligence to burn off any extra calories and to maintain the shape...

to add further, they would be warned by their IFS and suspended from flying shd the gals be overshape or there are too many pimples on their face.
