Thinking outside the square have you considered buying a single ticket from CMB and just using your points one way. Tickets on the relevant airline websites ex CMB can be very cheap

Also, check the fare class on your ticket to see whether it can be upgraded. SQ's upgrades aren't too bad, but are not amazing value using Velocity points. You will probably find it easier to get an upgrade on a day flight than a night one.
