THE first thing retiree Ooi Ean Hock, 68, does every morning is read the sports pages of The Star.
“I can watch the matches live nowadays but I still like reading about them.
“I have been doing this since the early 80s.”
The loyal reader also likes the paper’s regular doses of inspiring and informative content.
Ooi was accompanying his wife Ong Siew Bi, 61, to renew their subscription to The Star ePaper bundle at the newspaper’s contest booth at StarProperty.my Fair 2017 held at the north atrium ground floor of Queensbay Mall.
Ong said she gets to keep herself abreast with current issues through the daily.

“This is the most popular English daily. I have been a loyal reader from a young age,” she said yesterday.
The Star’s contest booth took on a carnival atmosphere as visitors lined up for the Spin & Win Contest which offers over RM50,000 worth of prizes.
To get a spin of the wheel, visitors have to cut out the contest form published in The Star for the day, fill in their personal particulars and answer a simple question correctly.
To qualify for the daily 8pm special draw which offers the Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro, Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro and Samsung Tab A 8.0 as prizes, participants must get two stamps by successfully spinning for two ‘Stars’.
Visitors who sign up for property at the fair get 10 spins.
Those who sign up for or renew their The Star ePaper bundle subscriptions get 10 or five free spins respectively.
Other visitors also signed up for the Nov 19 Fit For Life Run 2017.
They received a gift instantly, given while stocks last, and a free spin of the wheel.
Among them was project manager Andy Yong, 45, who signed up with his son.
“I like sports and futsal is my favourite sport.
“As for the Fit For Life Run, I hope I will have no problems finishing the event,” he said.
Another prize up for grabs is a serviced suite in Petaling Jaya worth more than RM550,000 in the Win A Home Campaign.
Visitors who register at the contest booth during the fair will be eligible for the prize.
Those who book property or buy homes from any of the 21 exhibitors at the fair will get more entries and stand a higher chance of winning.
