Financials lifted Singapore shares  .STI  0.9 percent higher, with the city-state's top lender DBS Group Holdings
 DBSM.SI  jumping 3.1 percent to hit its highest close in more than 17 years.
"DBS reported their results yesterday and markets are positive because they cleaned up their loan book of  non-performing loans for oil and gas," said Joel NG, an analyst from Singapore-based KGI Securities.

"Markets are basically seeing this as positive that the worst is over for their oil and gas non-performing loans."  
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  rose as much as 0.8 percent, hitting its highest since November 2007. 
Indonesian index  .JKSE  marked a record closing high, having risen 0.2 percent, owing its gains to the consumer
staples sector, with cigarette maker PT Gudang Garam Tbk  GGRM.JK  inching 4 percent higher.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  ticked up 0.2 percent to a near 10-year closing peak, with industrial parts supplier Saigon
