Christmas comes early for duo as they win $3,000 each in TNP Bonus Challenge
If you are the elder brother of cabby Ho Chin Weng, you are in for a nice surprise.
Thanks to his windfall, he will be taking you on a holiday to Pattaya.
Mr Ho, 52, walked away with $3,000 last night, half of the whopping $6,000 jackpot cash prize of The New Paper Bonus Challenge.
The other $3,000 was won by transport company boss Lim Lai Siong, 46.
Mr Ho, who drives his taxi on the night shift, could not believe his eyes when the numbers in yesterday's TNP matched those on his Bonus Challenge Card.
He had been trying his luck since the Bonus Challenge began last month but to no avail.
Last night's win was his first and the coming trip would be his brother's first holiday abroad.
The bachelor brothers have been reading TNP for over 10 years.
Like Mr Ho, the other winner, Mr Lim, has been a regular TNP reader for more than 10 years.
"My sister subscribes to TNP and I make it a point to read it. I'm a Manchester United supporter and I find TNP strong in its football reporting," he said.
But unlike Mr Ho, Mr Lim and his sister will spend the $3,000 in Singapore.
"It will be a Christmas celebration for my extended family. My parents have nine children and over 10 grandchildren, so we will be going to a restaurant to have a great feast," Mr Lim said.
HOW TO PLAY
To play, simply buy a copy of TNP with a Bonus Challenge Card every Monday, from now till Dec 21.
Match the numbers on the card against six daily digits printed in TNP from Tuesday to Sunday.
Complete any vertical row of numbers and claim your prize on that row by answering a simple question on the spot. Answers to these questions can be found in TNP together with the day's numbers.
Other prizes up for grabs include an iPad Mini 3 and a Mini folding bike. With last night's winners, the daily jackpot prize is now back at $1,000.
