What's going on inside the "O" of "SINGAPORE": a hasty skin patch on the upper deck entrance door?  eyebrow  Wonder if this caused a flight delay...

Are the titles painted on, or just decals? If they are the latter, it could just be a piece of it peeled off.

They should be painted on a brandnew aircraft, shouldn't they?

What exactly happened is always hard to guess. Looks like it is underneath the door. I don't know where the emergency slides deploy at the A380. But maybe from that area there. ANd they needed a new cover for that or had to change something there and wasn't enough time to put on some paint...
Just a guess.

I second that. The ends of the patch is at the position where the slides are stored.

Or it could be bird poo from the back of a 747-8 bird.

That's the slide cover alright...

Didn't SQ or Airbus mention slight teething glitches with those slides, and that they initially would be inspected and overhauled more frequently than previously planned?

Here's a thread I found about it:

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...
