We’ve just received a updates from Google AdSense that Singapore, Cambodia and Laos will now be able to get their AdSense earning through Western Union rather than through a cheque. See below announcement from Adsense :
We understand that payment options are very important to you, so we continuously work to improve them. Today we’re happy to announce that we’ve expanded Western Union Quick Cash® as an AdSense payment method to three additional countries: Singapore, Cambodia and Laos.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this form of payment, Western Union Quick Cash payments are free and will reach you faster than checks. Payments follow our normal payment schedule and are available for pickup in your local currency at your local Western Union agent the day after they’re issued.
It’s important to note that at this time we can only send Western Union payments to publishers that have an individual account. Also, the payee name on your account must exactly match the government-issued ID card that you’ll use when picking up your payments. For more information on how to sign up for and pick up Western Union payments, please visit our Help Center.
For those of you who don’t yet have Western Union Quick Cash as a payment method in your country, we appreciate your patience as we work to make this available. Please continue reading our Inside AdSense blog to learn about future launches.

I know that there are lots of Filipino bloggers in Singapore that will benefit with this new feature. I wonder when will AdSense use PayPal as their type of payment. PayPal would be more convenient in receiving payment since we don’t have to fall in line and fill up forms in Western Union. Saudi Arabia and Philippines has been using Western Union for a long time. With this new improvement, AdSense publisher will not pay $24 just to cash the cheque that they are receiving. Go AdSense..
