$100 sounds insanely low, so I'd start there...
But the others on here may know a lot more than I do.
Its SGD 611 in total fees. The $100 i mentioned there was a payable stopover fee.

you are going through a lot of airports so the fees while high are ok. I guess for that amount of flying, paying S$500 + the stop over fee, you are doing pretty well.

Just call them again and ask for split up of the fee, there is a possibility you are being charged a phone fee (which is not applicable when done online). I have done plenty of bookings over the phone where you have to point out your booking cannot be done online (if applicable) to avoid that fee. They are very reasonable.
I will try that again , thanks for your advice. When I first made the booking I reasoned with the agent that I shouldn’t be charged phone booking fee as Calling in is the only way to add the stopover. But he was either not very knowledgeable or not helpful at all.
