    You will note, I'm sure, that (with the exception of teechar changing the correct BrE spelling of "realises" to the AmE spelling "realizes") we made identical corrections half an hour apart.

    Yes, I think I should go with realizes instead realises. Even though BrE English is preferred in Asia but for some of the words Asian still preferred in AmE, such as realizes.

    See above.

    That's fine. Just make sure you're consistent. If you use the AmE spelling of "realizes", use the AmE spelling of any other words which have a BrE/AmE difference.
