Temporary or even permanently depending on traffice

thank you . Target market New Zealand India South and East Asia and Rest of the world. but may have lot of traffic from north america depending on popularity .

I have added some extra changes as per your recommendations I will be hosting about 10 blogs on a single droplet and as time goes will need more space and droplets are low on storage i will be doing this

Domain --> Cloudflare to AWS cloud front via wp plugin which will help me get data from aws, at (Usa and Europe Region Only class 100 as per aws) S3 for all Media from WordPress. via plugin Wordpress backups to Google cloud Storage. Droplet at Singapore DO , linked to S3 Sever in Singapore. but cloud front at usa and europe only(data transfer from s3 sg to usa is free as of what i know ) Will be setting up Main Droplet where the content and data base is backed with Nginx CGI Fast Cache . unless there is a problem i wont use it .

I will be using w3 total cache for cloud front ,behind cloud front . as per your suggestion i will also look at WC Total Cache.

I am hoping cloud flare may be smart enough to decide to server static cache content from my do dropet in the region around sg and there own cdn . for rest of the world use aws cloudfront and there own cloudflare cdn .

do you know ?how to divert dns as per geo location ie set up parameters what server to call for a specific region . can this be done via cloudflare . or any other way possible . they all will be only in english though with one exception also in chinese .

Yes, but you need to use the API to create new instances, I recommend you to use varnish if all you need is to handle more traffic, yet a better option is no use a service Like Cloudflare and avoid the hassle to do it your self. Unless you application is massive I see no need to scale on servers, you better use a CDN/Caching solution like Cloudflare.
