Dos dengue fever outbreak usually decline in "winter" (although there is no real winter in Singapore?
Winter is the dry season.
No rain, few stagnant pools of water for mosquitoes to breed in the dry season.
I'm prone to mosquito bites as they like my blood type. It's best to wear bright colors since mosquitoes are attracted to black and other dark colors. Leave your black business slacks at home as well as your black t-shirts and black dress shirts. I went out 2 weeks ago in black business slacks here in Bangkok and got 23 mosquito bites on my leg.
Always, always wear mosquito repellant. After you shower, apply anti-mosquito lotion to your legs & arms. Then spray lemongrass on your pants. I've done this and I don't get bitten at all. This time of year I wear white pants and beige/light brown pants. White jeans are ideal because they're thick and mosquitoes don't like bright colors.
No shorts what so ever!
Go to Singapore and have fun. Make sure you meet up with Ryanair!!! for a few beers!

Even taxis have mosquitoes flying around inside.
