Am I entitled to public holidays?

I am a non-singaporean employee workinbg in Singapore. As we are all aware, Singapore has its own sets of holidays. Are non=Singaporeans also entitled to rest on the public holidays? What are the different public holidays in Singapore? If we are entitled to those public holidays, how many public holidays are we entitled to?
