I know this is an old post, and I hope people don't mind me reviving it. To recap, the OP is a Filipino/British dual national. Her work pass was associated with her Filipino passport, and she was wondering if she should apply for PR using her Filipino or British passport. I hope that things went well with her PR application, whichever passport she decided to use in the application.
I want to follow up on the point that sundaymorningstaple raised below.
Suppose the following:
- OP applied for PR using her Filipino passport
- OP was granted PR status
- OP later apply for Singapore Citizenship
- Throughout the entire process, ICA was not aware of her second passport (she chose to not have her Re-entry Permit associated with her British passport)
- She was granted in-principle approval for Singapore Citizenship and now has to renounce her citizenship
Would it be ok (legally) if she renounces only her Filipino citizenship at this point since ICA was not aware of her British citizenship?

This could also hamper your chances as you would have to give up both your British and Philippines citizenships should you ever decide to take up Singapore Citizenship. The ICA may think that that would be a bit much to ask so they might think twice about PR. I think I'd stick with the Philippine Passport (You may have to reveal your dual citizenship if you haven't already when applying for your work visa.)
