    how i wish is swim in the pool zzz, basically is swim 3 laps in the sea on turtle-back style, each distance is about 300m from jetty to shore.
    and i haven't count the distance from beach swim to low rope.

    running part is 150m X 2 from shore back to jetty.

    what make us think that the baby will stay long after reading this "In addition, the father hopes for his son to be exposed to more education systems, and not limited to those of China or Singapore"

    Why not? If i'm the dad i'll do the same thing.

    IIRC, here was what candidates applying for phd scholarships (4 years) can expect:
    Foreigner gets a monthly stipend of $2500 for 4 years, no bond.
    Singaporean gets a monthly stipend of $3200(??) for 4 years, 2 years bond.

    I'd rather be a foreigner, siam 2 years NS and graduate early with no bond. The $700 difference in stipend, take it to pay another soldier to take my place.

    Sorry if OT but considering this being a photography forum, why didn't the photographer adjust for white balance in the photo? I know most press photographers shoot JPEG, but shouldn't he or she has adjusted for WB before shooting?

    Nope. Your monitor is correct.
    This photo should have been PP-ed before putting it up on the media.
