A rebus puzzle essentially consists of little pictures, often made with letters and words, which cryptically represent a word, phrase, or saying. It has nothing to do with mee rebus, a favourite local hawker fare.
Many years ago, a colleague would make us solve rebus puzzles without fail during Christmas celebration each year in the office. Maybe she thought that we had not been thinking hard enough at work so she took great delight in giving our brains a good workout even during a time of good cheer. You guessed it right - solving such puzzles didn't give me a lot of good cheer. Perhaps it did help work up my appetite a little as I was always thinking of the mee rebus they had prepared for the Christmas makan.
So to whet your appetite for the weekend meals that you will be having, below are some rebus puzzles for you to wreck your brains over. The answers will be given in the comments here on Wednesday. Alright, a little clue to help you get that perfect score - puzzle no. 7 is something I thought out myself and is topical.
