You depart from Beijing, don't you?

I did a quick search on AirAsia.com. Return flight between Beijing - Singapore is about $330.

Hi Tuan,

I am no longer in Beijing since October. Currently the nearest airport is Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport (IATA: TNA, ICAO: ZSJN). The direct return flight between Jinan - Singapore is Tigerair with about $600 and is too expensive for the community.

Could you please provide your flight details?

I did a quick search on AirAsia.com. Return flight between Beijing - Singapore is about $330.

There is no direct flight from TNA to SIN by AirAsia. However, I find some cheaper transfer ticket available at [http://english.ctrip.com/flights/jinan-to-singapore/tickets-tna-sin/?flighttype=d&dcity=tna&acity=sin&relddate=20&relrdate=24&startdate=2015-12-03&returndate=2015-12-07&startday=thur&returnday=mon&relweek=2&searchboxArg=t CNY 2611(USD 409.533)]. So my request amount can be changed to '''$400'''

Booking confirmation for Zamir.
Zamir-Booking.pdf

I did book accomadation for Zamir from my credit card.
Amount was S$ 62.40 for 3 nights.

According to zsun's #comment:4 +1

Your ticket has been approved with support amount of approx $400.

I've booked the flight from TNA(Jinan) to SIN(Singapore) with one stop at XMN(Xiamen)

The final costs is CNY 2494 = '''USD 391.24'''

As Zamir already got his VISA (as per his mail), I am gonna cancel booking at Hive.
They don't have enough beds for others.

Accommodation needs to be reserved by FAD organizers.
