You may need to provide you race/nationality and age and your highest level of education. This will allow the regulars here to give the best guess they can about your PR approval chances.

So which years did you stay here (before and currently)?

You mention that your eldest son is studying in a local school; how about any other children - are they all here with you in Singapore?

I'm trying to piece together your timeline but it's a little difficult with the scant information you've given. So you came here in 2010 and stayed for 1.5 years on an EP and then went away, returning sometime in 2012, correct? If so, I'd think your chances of obtaining PR are low, given the common view that they like to see three (continuous) years of tax contributions. Plus the fact that you left and then came back - this may lead the ICA to believe that you are the kind of person who will disappear whenever a better opportunity comes along elsewhere, rather than wanting to be a genuine permanent resident. This, plus your country of origin, would IMO cause the odds to be stacked against you. If I were you I would wait until you've been here a couple more years.

I'm afraid I would have to concur with Mi Amigo. My reading of it also came to the same conclusion.
