Singapore jobs - culture and similarity?

Hello,

I've noticed during the last couple weeks two job postings ...

1.  http://jobs.perl.org/job/13380

2.  http://jobs.perl.org/job/8974

... and am wondering if any of you have experience concerning such.

For example, the above 2 have a number of similarities but talk like they are 
unrelated.

Also, how appropriate is it to be asking an applicant for their photo, which 
both of these do?

Maybe its a different culture thing with Singapore, but as far as I know in 
North America it is inappropriate to be asking for a photo with an application, 
same as it is inappropriate to ask questions on one's family status or religion 
or politics etc in a job interview.

Do or have any of you worked for a Singapore company and do you have any 
thoughts concerning these postings?
