For your budget, you would do well with Rega:

They have a solid reputation for great sounding low-mid price turntables and 
I had a Rega Planar 3 in the early '80s while I was in the UK.

The current RP1 model at only ?230 is highly rated:

They have a distributor in Singapore too:

Audio 88
1 Coleman Street
#01-22 / #03-40
The Adelphi
Singapore 179803.

Hope this helps.
