Default Daily sunshine hours history

Hi everyone, does any of you know a website where I could find a precise daily history of sunshine hours for various locations worldwide? Especially for Singapore. It's pretty cloudy right now and I'm really curious how many hours they recorded for the past two weeks. I've tried wunderground but I can't find it !
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks!

what about this?
BBC - Weather Centre - World Weather - Average Conditions - Singapore
http://www.climatetemp.info/singapore/

http://www.sunrisesunset.com/
Singapore’s climate is furnished with 2064 hours of sunshine per year. That is an average of 5.65 hours per day. Daily hours of sunshine range from between 4.5 per day in December to 6.4 per day in February.

Actually, I'm not looking for averages but a daily history Or at least monthly : for example, the amount recorded in December 2010 in particular, etc. I can find very easily such daily data for Hong Kong and France but not Singapore!
Thanks anyway!

Have you tried the Singaporean meteorological department (or whatever it's called)?

That is a bit difficult: despite Singapore's small size, there may be sunshine on one side while there is rain on the other...

Haha, yeah, but unlike Hong Kong Observatory which is a gold mine of climatological data of all sorts, Singapore's is pretty empty. I guess they do have the information I need but it seems they won't publish it. I know the data exists because on weatheronline.uk I can find a daily history of sunshine hours, but it's on a graph which is extremely unconvenient to read. I do know it's correct because I compared it with what the cloud cover I experienced in the last few days. But it's unusable because you have like 4 weeks represented on a very small graph with no precise numbers so the data is somewhere but I can't find it

thanks elnina for your link, the monthly values are indeed a good start!
