    Edwin,

    Pertinent to your question, check out Citi Premiermiles American Express Card where they're offering:
    • Spend on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, KrisShop: S$1= 2 Citi Miles
    • Overseas spend: S$1 = 2 Citi Miles;
    • Local spend: S$1 = 1.3 Citi Miles
    • No min. spend required.
    • 15,000 Citi Miles on renewal
    • Also, current promos are 8 Citi Miles for S$1 spend on Agoda & 10 Citi Miles for S$1 spend on Kaligo.
    • Citi Miles are non-expiring & can convert 1 Citi Mile = 1 KrisFlyer Mile.
    • Other airline conversions include Asia Miles, Etihad Guest etc.
    • If you've surplus, Citi Miles are also convertible to IHG and HHonors points.
    To add, if you open at Citigold account with a minimum S$250,000; there's a 58,000 Citi Miles welcome gift.

    I don't work for nor receive any compensation from Citibank. If you do find other more attractive ways to earn KF Miles, I'll be keen to learn too.

    Have fun in your hobby:)

    Thanks so much for jumping in, Anthony, I appreciate it! I'm not too familiar with earning miles in Singapore, so those sound like good options to me.

    One other thing to consider is that Starwood is currently selling Starpoints for ~2.6 cents each, which is ultimately a way to generate KrisFlyer miles for ~2.1 cents each:
    http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2015/04/20/buy-starpoints-with-up-to-25-discount/

    Admittedly that's not an *amazing* value, but if the goal is to get KrisFlyer miles as quickly as possible, it is worth considering, in my opinion.
