  22. I like the way Kai Xuan's poem is presented as the colours used simply describe the way of the Christmas lighting during Christmas Eve. The format of the wordle is simple and the words used is descriptive and catchy.

  23. I like Sean's "poem". Being a very impartial person, I like it because I simply love Kit Kat! And the sounds clearly reflect on the Kit Kat, the texture, the look, also the person, the feeling, the movement. I think that the colours are also quite alright. Bits of red and brown that resembles the packaging and product itself.
