SINGAPORE - You can now buy digital music and movies from Apple's iTunes Store.
Music and movies are a new addition to the iTunes Store for 12 countries in Asia, which include Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Brunei, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Sri Lanka.
Users in these markets could only download and purchase apps from the iTunes Store previously.

I've sent an email and asked Apple why Apple don't open their iTunes store here and when is that going to happen. And here is Apple's email reply about iTunes music store / mp3 in Asia / Singapore:
