English for Singapore?

There’s no special written English only for Singapore. If you hear of "Singapore English" or "English for Singapore," that usually refers to spoken dialects and local informal speech.

For written materials, it is usually only a question of whether a company prefers U.S. or U.K. English spellings, but both are usually acceptable in Singapore. U.K. English has been the standard, but in recent decades U.S. English has also become common--especially among the younger generation.
