Yes if you are a Singaporean or Permanent Resident. Difficult if you are not as they're easy to find locally and frankly more familiar with local accounting practices.

You've had your answer: no, it's not easy, but with your qualifications I think you have a chance. Now start networking, surely you know other people if you've been working that long?
