There is a form of SuperGlue that is formulated for Glass objects but even that will not make a good bond and will not make an invisible repair. For any glue to be a good bond the material being repaired needs to have some porosity otherwise, the bond will be weak. Probably the best chance to find that particular kind of superglue would be a the HandyMan Centre in Shaw Centre:

Handyman Centre: 1 Scotts Road, Shaw Centre #04-04/07 Singapore Tel: 6737 9592

Perhaps you can also try looking for some glass blowing shops...

...or someone handy with a blowtorch.

Melting is the only way I know of seamlessly bonding glass.
