If I were you, I would remove NUS and HKUST, and add Oxford and Cambridge to the 'safe' list. Add LBS to your 'ambitious' list. You should aim high. While you are in the UK, you should also visit the 3 schools mentioned above. It will help you tremendously.

Though your GMAT and GPA are below average, you seem to have good professional experience. If you can write excellent essays, I am confident it can compensate other areas in your application. Your extra curricular activities are also good.

If you have taken GMAT only once, you might also want to give it one more shot.

Your post-MBA goals needs more polishing. Speak to few people who are working in your target sector. A small career progression doesn't excite most of the top schools. The big 4 consulting firms you mentioned are easily reachable with any of the top schools. You need to dream big. Good luck!
