Shah Alam, 20 Jan: A casual test drive turned into a lucky corner for Mr Law Soon Hee, 26, when we was chosen to be the winner of Perodua’s “Test Drive and Win” short message service (SMS) contest which ran from October to December last year.
Mr Law received the new Perodua Bezza 1.3L Advance Variant at the MYPerodua Nation carnival, Perodua’s first and biggest outdoor carnival, held here between 20th January and 22nd January.
“Congratulations to Mr Law and 15,000 other customers for participating in this contest; we hope that the new Perodua Bezza would come in handy particularly with the Chinese New Year celebrations just around the corner,” Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director, Dato’ Dr. Zahari Husin said at the MYPerodua Nation Carnival opening.
The MYPerodua Nation carnival was officiated by Perodua Chairman, YBhg Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin and attended Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, YBhg Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh; while diamond sponsors for the event are AmGeneral Insurance Bhd and Bank Rakyat.
The contest required a potential Perodua buyer to test drive any Perodua model; answer a simple question and SMS the answer for a chance to win spectacular prizes.
The grand winner is a Perodua Bezza 1.3L Advance Variant (complete with GearUp accessories) while a 5-day, 5-night trip awaits 30 other lucky winners.
“We also welcome all to come and experience MYPerodua Carnival and take part in the many exciting games and contest we have prepared just for you.”
“In fact, one visitor could stand a chance to win one Perodua Axia as part of our lucky draw prize,” Dato’ Dr. Zahari said.
The event will also feature live concerts and celebrity appearances fit for the entire family.
