A wish come true for lucky winners

Proud winners: Tan and husband Justin Huan are happy about winning a Wellous Health & Beauty Care Package while Yin was overjoyed to bag a Panasonic 55” 4K Smart TV in Star Media Group’s 50 Days of Giveaways Contest.

JOHOR BARU: Christine Tan’s tough day at work took a positive turn after finding out that she had won a prize worth RM1,910 in Star Media Group’s (SMG) 50 Days of Giveaways Contest.

Tan, who is an associate director at a multinational firm, said she was having a stressful day when she received the happy news.

“I was actually expecting a call from a client, so it made my day to learn that I will be receiving the Wellous Health & Beauty Care Package from the contest. What a pleasant surprise!” said Tan, 33.

 “I tend to forget about stocking up on health supplements as we are going out less during the pandemic. So it is great that there is a set of them coming my way,” said the mother of one from Selangor.

The contest, held as a countdown to SMG’s 50th anniversary on Sept 9, is divided into five series.

Tan was one of the winners of the third series.

Prizes worth RM191,180 have been given out so far.

Today, two more units of the Canon Mini Projectors will be given out to two winners.

Other fabulous gifts, including the grand prize of a shiny Mazda2 Hatchback, and Shopee vouchers, are still available to lucky participants in the remaining four days till the grand finale on Sept 9.

Tan said she is a regular reader of The Star. It was a habit that she picked up when she was in secondary school.

“I was influenced by my parents who are also loyal readers. Growing up, there was always a copy of The Star lying around at home.”

Since getting married and moving to her own place, Tan said she and her husband had switched to the e-paper.

“We make it a point to read the news, especially the main pages, every morning.”

Tan, who has a 14-month-old child, said she hoped to influence her to pick up the habit of reading the newspaper daily.

Another lucky winner of the third series is Yin Thing Lee, who was overjoyed to get a Panasonic 55” 4K Smart TV.

It came at the perfect time.

“Just last week, I thought to myself that my 10-year-old TV is quite old and maybe it was time to replace it. It was truly a wish that came true,” said Yin, 45.

She has been diligently entering the contest since it started in July,

Yin, who lives with her mother and sister in Shah Alam, said the prize was like a “reward” for reading The Star for more than two decades.

One of the winners of an Honor Magicbook 15 laptop is Terry Ng, 59, who aims to continue participating in the contest as he is hoping to drive home a brand new car.

“I will keep trying my luck for the grand prize,” said the retiree from Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur.

Sponsors for the 50 Days of Giveaways are Mazda, Panasonic, Honor, Sunway Hotels & Resorts, Canon, Shopee, BOH, Wellous, SASA, Habib, Citizen and Bank Rakyat.
