Possibly.  A quick check tells me that the government of Singapore are about
170ms RTT, and 13 hops, from my desk here in Melbourne.  The US is ~ 260ms or
so, on average, over the Internode SYD->SHJ transit, so Singapore wins.

OTOH, it depends more or less entirely on where in Singapore the
infrastructure is located and where your clients are from, I guess.
