It took the Lions just ten minutes to open the scoring when Faritz Hameed's blistering right-wing cross found Khairul Amri, who did well to meet it with a deft header that sailed past Pyae Phyo Aung and into the back of the net.
Two minutes later, Singapore doubled their lead when left-back Shaiful Esah lined up a 25-yard freekick and unleashed a fantastic effort that sailed over the wall and dipped into the top corner.
The visitors could have went further ahead as the half wore on as veteran striker Indra Sahdan Daud, playing international football for the first time in five years, blazed just wide from Qiu Li's cross in the 18th minute, before Amri was denied by the post nine minutes later after forcing his way past Phet Naing down the left.
To their credit, Myanmar, who were playing with an Under-23 side, did cause a few problems to their opponents and Kyi Lin was unlucky not to pull one back in the 35th minute when he skipped past Safuwan Baharudin on the edge of the area and drilled a shot past Izwan Mahbud, only to see it come back off the post.
Myanmar then had an even better chance to make it 2-1 at the start of the second half when they were awarded a penalty after a foul by Baihakki Khaizan inside the area, but Izwan off a good save to maintain the Lions' two-goal advantage.
And any hopes of a comeback from the hosts were extinguished in the 58th minute when they were reduced to ten men, after Yan Aung Win received his marching orders for kicking Shaiful in the face.
