I am not expert on the Singapore market, however the singapore S-REIT's dividends seem very attractive on global comparison, however inflation should also be acknowledged.

Anyway I would not recommend single equity investing but rather ETFs,

like the (mostly Singapore focused) Lion-Phillip S-REIT.

When thinking of dividend yielding stocks you should consider that dividends are only one part of stock investing, also the rise/fall of the stock price (= capital appreciation) must be considered. The following chart compares the 10 year price performance of the U.S. SP500 to one Singapore stock index ETF: Nikko AM Singapore STI ETF

The latter is almost a flat-liner compared to SP500, so maybe with Singapore stocks You have nice dividends but almost no capital appreciation or even losses.

The SP500 as an ETF (f.ex. VOO or IVV) currently has also nice dividend distribution (up to 2.0%).
