Alibaba is listed in US’s NYSE, and Tencent is listed in Hong Kong’s HKEx.
Do take note that you’ll have to sign W-8Ben to declare that you’re not a US tax-resident, if you intend to trade US stocks.

I am using CGS-CIMB Securities, I find the platform is the most user-friendly to me. The commission is pretty standard for CDP-linked brokers (i.e. min $25, 0.275%).

Customer service is pretty much standard, not much issue.

If you are using CGS-CIMB Securities, you may want to consider opening their CIMB FastSaver (1% interest - no frills). The money you put into this account is not supposed to be withdrawn (i.e. no ATM card), except yeah you can still do ibanking transfers. So you may treat this bank account as a mini "money market" 1% returns before you invest via CGS-CIMB Securities.

My personal preference is still CGS-CIMB Securities.

I have also opened the following brokerage accounts too:
- Maybank Kim Eng
- Phillip Securities
- OCBC Securities
- DBS Vickers
- Saxo Capital
