JOHOR BARU: Project manager Tan Keong Eng, a Singaporean, received an unexpected RM888 ang pow to usher in the Year of the Goat, thanks to Linkedua (Malaysia) Berhad, operator of the Second Link bridge.  

Tan was not the only lucky one as Linkedua and Eden Garden Johor Baru gave out nearly RM500,000 worth of ang pow to motorists using the Second Link. 

The Singaporean could not have asked for a better start to the Chinese New Year when he drove out of the island to visit relatives in Cheras.

The first thing Tan asked when told that he was one of the five lucky motorists to walk away with RM888 ang pow, was “Are your sure?” 

“I appreciate the highway operator for being so thoughtful,” said Tan. 

Eight other motorists were given RM288 and 14 others RM88 ang pows.  

All in all, Linkedua gave out 100,000 ang pow packets, while Eden Garden gave away 5,000 vouchers worth RM30 and RM60.  

Linkedua senior marketing and corporate communications executive Romizam Mohd Saleh said: “It is our way of thanking the users of the highway.”
