    Some of my keywords are ranked top 20 in google Intl (according to whatsmyserp)

    but in my country, Singapore, the KWs are between 70 and 100..

    May i know how should i rectify this? What went wrong?

    Appreciate any advice given!

    Is your domain a .com or .sg ? A .sg will always rank better locally but you can set you geo-targeting in webmaster tools.

    domain is without sg

    and Singapore's language is mostly english

    I'll try setting the geographical settings and see if it makes any difference, appreciate your help

    Definitely set your target country in Google Webmaster. See that could help.

    In addition, are mainly of your links are .sg domains?

    find and buy links from local websites, add an adress of your office (maybe fake, not sure about that) and imho, one of the best local tool is hosting you use.

    You can also push some anchors such as keyword + singapore - worked great for a local site I was helping a friend with.
