You are not entitled to use it at all since you are not the Platinum Member.

Ih the member was travelling , he would be entitled to use the lounge regardless of airline being flown

As this is a breach of the T&C, if you get caught then your father could lose his FF status completely, along with any points accrued.

The risk is yours (and your fathers).

If you were travelling Oneworld, in most international lounges, they would ask to see the boarding pass and possibly the QF Platinum card. In my experience they swipe the boarding pass and your details appear on their computer screen and it would show that you have no lounge access.

Since you are not flying Oneworld you could try using your fathers Platinum card but the risk of getting caught is not worth it.

Even when using Platinum Anytime access in an Intl lounge, they still tend to ask you for your boarding pass and scan it. (No idea why, but assume it's to keep track of something).

Singapore airport is actually quite a nice airport. There's a cinema, gardens, pool etc and quick tours of Singapore are also available if the transit is long enough.
