Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 15 October 2010

A Singaporean now stands a one-in-six chance of receiving a million dollar windfall after shopping at Changi Airport.

Mr Loh Kee Peng, a 39-year-old sales manager, has been picked as the lucky monthly winner of the Be a Changi Millionaire Draw for the month of August. He is the first Singaporean to become a monthly winner of the Millionaire Draw, giving him the incredible chance of winning the grand prize of Sin$1 million.

It was Mr Lohs romantic gesture of love towards his wife that won him this amazing piece of good luck. In August, he purchased a Sin$5,000 platinum diamond ring for his wife as a wedding anniversary gift from the Tiffany & Co in Terminal 2 en route to Hong Kong for a business trip. When his family joined him in Hong Kong for a vacation a few days later, he presented the gift to his wife as a sweet surprise. It was a special gift for my wife for our fifth wedding anniversary. She has always wanted a ring like that. Needless to say, she was very delighted! said Mr Loh. The couple have a four-year old daughter.

Although Singaporeans contribute a significant 15% to total retail sales at Changi Airport, Mr Loh is the first Singaporean to become a monthly winner of the Be a Changi Millionaire Draw. Previous monthly winners for June and July were from Australia and South Africa respectively.

Still trying to get over his great stroke of luck, Mr Loh said, The good news about winning the August Draw has not fully sunk in yet, let alone the fact that I have a one-in-six chance to win a million dollars! I was invited to fill up some lucky draw forms and so I did. It never crossed my mind that I could be the winner. Its so exciting and Im really looking forward to the Grand Draw, said Mr Loh.

As the monthly winner, Mr Loh wins Sin$5,000 in cash plus a three day/two night stay in a hotel.

The Be a Changi Millionaire Draw, which kicked off on 1 June 2010, has a Grand Prize of Sin$1 million. The Millionaire will be selected from among six monthly winners. In addition, there are 188 other cash prizes totalling more than S$200,000.

In January next year, Mr Loh will participate in the Be a Changi Millionaire Grand Draw alongside the five other monthly finalists, whose names will be drawn upon the close of every month from June to November 2010.

Asked how he intends to spend the Grand Prize of Sin$1 million if he wins, Mr Loh replied, It is my dream to be debt free, so the bulk of the prize money will go towards the repayment of my housing loan. A portion will also be donated to charity, while some will be spent on pampering my family with a nice holiday, good dinner and perhaps more pretty gifts from Tiffany which has brought me good luck!
