Buying Singapore Government Bonds and hold to maturity is a safe alternative but very low returns.

Do some research and read up about dividend investing if you are interested.
I think putting all funds into SG govt bonds is not that ideal also, this will probably still lose out to inflation.
A more profitable idea may be using diversified passive portfolio, by splitting the investment between STI ETF and SG Govt bonds at 50/50 split, then use yearly rebalancing to try keep the ratio at 50/50.
