Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 28 July 2010

An Australian from the State of Victoria, on his first overseas holiday with his wife, has become the first monthly winner of the Be a Changi Millionaire Draw after purchasing two bottles of perfume at Singapore Changi Airport.

Mr Philip Moody, 53, from Cape Paterson, a two-hour drive from Melbourne, wins Sin$5,000 in cash plus return airfare to Singapore with a three day/two night stay in a luxurious hotel as the June winner of the monthly draw. The veteran police officer now has a one-in-six chance of becoming the Changi Millionaire.

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

This cant be true, Im not that lucky. I really thought it was some kind of a practical joke, said Mr Moody, when he was told that his name had been drawn as the Draw winner for the month of June. My wife and I talked about it on our flight home, but I never really thought I would be picked out of all the people I imagine took part!

Come January 2011, Mr Moody will be travelling to Singapore for the Be a Changi Millionaire Grand Draw alongside five other monthly finalists, whose names will be drawn upon the close of every month from July to November 2010.

My wife will come with me; she is my lucky charm. Ill just cross my fingers and hope my good luck will continue, Mr Moody said.
