The other thing going against you is that your OH is British and will be unemployed in Singapore for the first few months. Had he been Malaysian Chinese, chances would be a bit higher. Though, not guaranteed.
The SG gahmen has seen enough abuses to sift out PR abusers. In your case, it raises a lot of red flags. If you are truly committed to sinking your roots in Singapore, fork out the extra 10% for a property, and show that you are committed, and stay in Singapore for a few years before applying for your Permanent Residency.

Yeah, I have the job already, job is secured. Reason for not applying for a British naturalisation as opposed to just being an Indefinite leave to remain are 2fold and rather simple in its reasonings - (a) being a Msian citizen does not afford me the privilege of dual nationality. Also travelling around the world on a Msian passport living in UK has been and is still a breeze. (b) at the back of my mind as well as my OH's we have always intend to retire to Msia, however, with the politics the way it is, Singapore it will have to be and long weekends in Msia.
It is that simple. I am not going to Singapore to exploit its benefits or rights afforded to its PR or citizens. Just like living here for the past 24years, I have not exploits the welfare benefits in the UK. This isn't a Daily Mail situation whereby someone has 9kids with 9different dads and the council is paying £2k per week in rent in Knightbridge.
The questions that I have asked are valid and concerns the different facets of my live, our lives. Handle it, I am sure when you guys emigrated, you guys have had considered all these as well, what happened or will happen to your NI etc. Give me a break here!!!
