AirAsia's safety is fine, in my experience. They know that a safety snafu would spell death to their business, so there is really nothing to be concerned with regarding their training or maintenance. I've flown with them a number of times and I've never once been concerned about safety or piloting -- and I'm a pilot myself, so I figure I would notice if something seemed out of sorts.

That said, if you fly AK you will only get from KUL-JHB, not SIN. You would have to take ground transportation from Senai Airport to Singapore. May not be worth the hassle considering that SQ or MH are still somewhat affordable on the KUL-SIN route, at least in USD.
