For prawning, most people fish them at commercial ponds but of course they cost money. Unless you're talking about those prawns we use for fishing, they're pretty common at shores with sand and mud. Those prawns are more active night time and you can catch them using cast net. Just ask domvonn. ;)

For squids, you should be able to catch them at jetties such as Bedok Jetty and Labrador Park. The green eye squid can be commonly caught using squid jugs and can be caught during day and night. You can try your luck by simply dropping the jig down the jetty beside the pillars but beware of snags.

At jetties during the night, you may also find anglers attracting squids with kerosene lamp. Those are arrowhead squids and are commonly caught using a long net to scoop up from near water surface.

If you have the chance, do drop by jetties at night to watch how other anglers catch them. :)
