A different type of pageant

Different companies have different tradition. Some may exist to preserve the culture of the company while some are there, purely to satisfy certain individuals or certain group of people.

Last week, I blogged about a certain
bikini tradition within a certain company. I actually found out more juicy information about that company but I think I shall leave that part out for the moment. Today, let’s focus on another…

Again, this is not a joke, this is real. In fact, this “tradition” is quite well known in the industry…

In this particular company, there is actually an internal beauty pageant. Don’t get me wrong, there is no official interview or girls walking around in swimsuits or evening downs or girl putting up 2 of fingers and cutely say… “I want world peace”. Nothing of that sort. This pageant is conducted behind the back of the beauties.

This is how it works…

Every year, the ham sap los self-elected committee will scout the company for girls whom they think deserve to be nominee in this “pageant”. Nomination can also be made by people close to the self-elected committee. Of course, the nominated one must have the looks to be in. Apparently, this unofficially official pageant has got a reputation to maintain.

Nominees are a combination of new recruits and existing staff. The self-elected committee will then come up with a short-list and this list will then be forwarded via company e-mail to the rest of the ham sap los the general male population of the company. Mind you, the e-mail being sent out is professionally drafted making the pageant worthy of official status.

Purpose of the e-mail…… Votes!

After the voting frenzy is completed, a list of the company top 10 babes will be out and forwarded to the male population. The top 10 babes are not officially notified of their achievement but somehow, words will reach them anyway. Some have found “fame” from the list. Also, I was told that a 40-odd-year-old senior management lady has consistently remained in the top 10 list for a few years running.

Interesting, isn’t it?

Bet some of you already know which company this is…

dear cindy khor,

guess no fish has taken your bait yet....keep on fishing. the compliments will come. someone will say "nola cindy, you aint fat..you are so beautiful". im sure...keep on fishing.

Dear Zewt,
Im guessing that since you sound like u started off in the big 4 then the company must be one of the big 4. Im guessing its PriceWaterHouse. I dont mind banging a few babes there. I like hardworking auditors in tight skirts. They press me in the right spots.

Ashley,
When was the last time you wore leather pants?

I used to work in a bank where during our annual dinner, all eligible young girls dressed up and stand on stage so judges (senior managers including men and women) can choose the Miss bank for the next year. I found it fun though.
