They came to be seen and become Superkakis
15 lucky readers snag TNP SuperKaki memberships and prizes at Raffles Place courtyard
Be seen with The New Paper at Raffles Place courtyard and you could win a six-month SuperKaki membership and a TNP SuperKaki Memorabilia Box worth $129.
Our invitation was so tempting that many people made a beeline for the courtyard from 11am to 2pm yesterday, hoping to become a TNP Superkaki, a programme with exclusive membership perks and goodies. (See report above)
Like many others, Ms Quah Wei Ling and Mr Jerry Goh were so keen to win the Superkaki membership and Memorabilia Box that they went specially to Raffles Place hoping to be among the 15 winners.
Ms Quah, who works in banking, said: "I'm very happy that I got spotted because I had read about it and decided to try my luck.
"I thought the box had cute items and the membership programme is an added bonus."
Mr Goh, 62, a bank manager, said he wanted become a SuperKaki after reading about it in TNP.
"It's a good programme because it encourages people to come together. It was worth it sitting in the sun and waiting to get spotted," he said with a laugh.
Another winner, Mr Denny Tian, 59, who works in business development, was spotted relaxing with a copy of TNP on a swing during his lunch break.
He had just returned to Singapore on Sunday night from a week-long business trip to Malaysia and wanted to unwind before heading back to work to wrap up his reports.
"I never expected to be spotted. I just wanted to relax so I was caught by surprise," said Mr Tian, who reads TNP daily and accesses the digital version when he is overseas.
"Reading TNP keeps me updated on the latest news so that I don't lose touch with what's happening around me," he added.
After a medical check-up at Shenton Way yesterday morning, Mr Md Hafies Syazwan, 22, was seen reading TNP while waiting for a friend when he became the first winner to be spotted.
Mr Hafies, who has just completed his national service, said: "I was so shocked that I won. Maybe I'll continue the SuperKaki membership even after the six months."
Like other winners, student Gabriel Woon, 23, was "excited" about the SuperKaki membership programme.
He said: "I think it's a good programme and I hope to take someone along to enjoy the benefits."
