Is my timing okay? [SIN connection]

I will be arriving in SIN on April 1st from HND @3:15PM

My next flight is same day from SIN to KUL @6:10PM

Is this enough time for me to go through Custom (if any) in SIN and re-enter Custom to depart to KUL

HND to SIN is via Singapore Air

SIN to KUL is Malaysia Air.

Is 3 hours doable in terms of collecting my luggage and then check-in luggage for the departure?

There is still some risk if the first flight is delayed but 3 hours at SIN shouldn't be an issue at all for you.

LE wants to know if the tickets were purchased as a single trip thus having one PNR or if the tickets were purchased as two separate trips.

If purchased as one single PNR, the airlines are almost certain to put you on another flight if you miss your connection, much less likely to if the tickets were purchased separately.

Safe Travels!

Why do you need to go through immigration, customs, and collect checked bags? AFAIK SQ and MH still interline, so this could mean that you have separate tickets.

Tickets was purchase as two separate trip.

Booked LAX-NRT & HND-SIN as one trip

Separately booking for SIN - KUL

Since its not through one single transaction, I worried the 3 hours is not enough

You'll be fine if your flight arrives on time, or up to ca 90 minutes late. Any more and it's anyone's guess. I find SIN to be super-efficient, so you should be okay unless your inbound flight is significantly delayed.
