If it says reasonably soft and pliable instead of hardening, then it's probably some kind of mastic. The likes of IDL99 (made by Carafix, I think) should be a good substitute, though that's tricky enough to track down in the UK and I wouldn't know where to start in Singapore.

If it's the kind of stuff that's gone solid (though slightly rubbery) then you're looking at a bonding sealer. Something like Sikaflex or TigerSeal. But this stuff sets solid and is a nightmare to get off if you ever need to, so the mastic would probably be better.

At a pinch, you'd probably get away with careful application of silicon bathroom sealant, though you didn't hear it from me if it all goes horribly wrong!

Take care when working with any of the above. they all have a tendency to get everywhere and are near impossible to get out of clothes and carpet trim.
