Kindle Fires are available to a lot of countries in Asia - the only ones that still can't get them are North Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma and Indonesia.

They are available in Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Cambodia, Taiwan, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Laos as well as quite a few others.

The most likely explanation has to do with Amazon and your government not having an agreement in place for Amazon to distribute electronic data in Singapore.

and there's an interesting discussion here as to why:

note that the date is 2011 before you get your hopes up
