Haha, 19 had you stumped? That's a classic though, isn't it? So apt, hehehe.

Oh dear Wind in My Hair
Oh come you‘ve been faster?

Why did you break so fast the code
And found fifteen is Orchard Road?

Although I believe you did not need a key
To find that the last is Boat Quay

I have to admit I find quite weird
That you got the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd

May be the time I lost was too ample
When I could not see seven was Sri Mariamman Temple

I should not have taken my lunch
And then I would have beaten you with a punch

At least I also got all of them right
Even if I am not local. Have a good night!!

sms, those stumped me too. but truth be told, my last hurdle was 19. for 2 i wasn't sure if i got it right. saint added another word which isn't usually used with that place. as for 18, it helps to be catholic! :wink:



Ah maybe I did put an extra word in for number 2, don't actually know why I did :oops!:

In the meantime, if no one has noticed, CD is serenading WIMH with poetry. :P

i'm truly impressed with your rhyming skill,
especially since english for you is uphill.

and also because you are not local,
your breaking the code is wow, phenomenal.

and don't begrudge me for being so fast,
i near took the wrong bus while bent on my task.

and now that we've solved all twenty of them,
goodnight indeed, my dear carpe diem!

yes it is. but i never go there so that one was hard for me. finally remembered some mention of it on another thread and that's when the coin dropped.

My dear Sapphire, I can feel some jealousy
When you question about our poems, but it’s easy!

As WIMH explained quite well
I enjoy the rhymes, so what the hell!

Don’t you think it is a nice way of communication
At least better than this “sms style”

I actually only missed 3 of them, Little India Street I came up with numerous times but as there is no such place per se I kept thinking it was wrong. But not a clue on the other three. Excellent exercise saint. Good on you!
