For the most part, I agree with you.
Singapore has classy buildings, but it isn't very impressive.

I think Singapore has an impressive skyline. Its scale is indeed quite small, but IMO not every impressive skyline has to be big. Actually the small scale makes it easier to maintain a well organized skyline, with the help of high-quality buildings and nice water areas.

On the other hand, huge and sprawling skylines tend to give people a mind blowing impression.

Sexay. I miss Singapore.

I want to find a job there...any suggestions for young inexperienced people (age 23, got a degree in Marketing) for jobs in Singapore? Even paid/subsidised internships?

It won't beside the Canton Tower because 90% of the tacky lighting towers/building aren't finish or occupied yet.
