How do I spin this?

Hey guys,

Most recent internship was trading sovereign debt at the prop desk of a top 3 bank (in assets) in the GCC (the middle east). I am fluent in Bahasa Indonesia, English, and Arabic. I want to land either a fixed income or foreign exchange internship based in Singapore.

How can I spin my previous experience?
How is landing an internship there different than in the US?
How is networking to get into trading different than in IB (where coldcalling works more from my experience)?

I don't think you need to spin anything, I think you did a good enough job in you above summary. The people reading your resume will want the key highlights and you have already given us that.
Aku sudah tinggal di Jakarta, Singapura dan Hong Kong.
Percayalah Hong Kong adalah dana lebih dari dua lainnya.
