Check out this website.
It even has Singapore. Simply clicking a place on the map will yield your lat and long. however beware that the roads info may be about 5-6 years outdated but the coordinates should still work. (my house road is listed as "under construction" !)

Hi Rich I, as discussed last night, I find this a very useful link for getting coordinates for goto scopes. Perhaps you may like to make it sticky. Google Earth is another good one.
