Hi all,

I somehow just couldn't get my regular expression syntax correct. Will you please help 
me?

some examples of my valid string is:
sinx0401-001-45
hkgx0403-020-12
jktx0402-000-01
bkkx0407-013-44

the definition is:
1st 4 characters   - can only be "sinx" or "hkgx" or "bkkx" or "jktx"
next 4 characters - numbers 0 to 9
next 1 character   - a dash "-"
next 3 characters - numbers 0 to 9
next 1 character   - a dash "-"
last 2 characters  - numbers 0 to 9

(sin|hkg|bkk|jkt)x[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{2}
