You can certainly try. However, I suspect the landlord will say you were not terminated, that you resigned. Then what are you going to do? Your options are limited. Exercise your rights under the diplomatic clause and see what happens?

If you're planning on leaving or need to leave and have a good working relationship with landlord, better to try and work it out.

This is Singapore, not the US, UK , CA, AU or anywhere else. English has it's on meanings here. I think you will still be hard pressed to make a case of it. But don't let that stop you from trying. There are a lot of people that don't believe a fire is hot or that drugs will kill without actually trying it. Have at it.
