Hi

What is Singapore work culture like ? Do I need to discuss with manager before dropping the email ?
Or I can directly go ahead with my resignation ? I want to leave for sure.
Good habit anywhere is to speak and then drop an email. It will look more courteous.

it depends a bit on what outcome you want. if you just want to go and don't want to try to negotiate then just resign on email. if you want to negotiate something then find a more tactful way - the last time I resigned I simply handed my work phone to the lady who manages them. In five minutes I got a call from KL asking "what's going on?". I told them I was done (FYI I had just negotiated the biggest sale for our product line) and the manager said sit tight for an hour. HR then called and asked what I really wanted (which was garden leave) which I got.

You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA

I do think it is more polite to speak face-to-face before throwing in a resignation letter.
