I’m not a football fan, but it’s still very exciting to be able to watch the European football championship live.
When I purchased Melia Residences, I knew about the lucky draw but I didn’t give it much thought because I bought the property for its many qualities. I am a loyal purchaser of UEM Sunrise’s properties in Johor. I own quite a few already including Nusa Idaman and Imperia,” he said.
Mohd Radhie Abdullah Din, 33, who purchased Verdi eco-dominiums also expressed his excitement over winning a pair of return flight tickets, with 5D/4N five-star accommodation, guided tour and tickets to watch the semi-final match of the European football championship live in Marseille, France. “I feel extremely excited because I’ve never watched a match live in the stadium before.
I usually travel overseas for work, but this time around it feels like a reward for me. “I didn’t even think I would win stand a chance to win and I didn’t even know about the prizes until I came here. I purchased the property because I was impressed with its design and location and of course its attractive sales package,” said Radhie. Dr. Chandra Mohan, 51, who purchased a unit of Noble Park in East Ledang, his first property with UEM Sunrise said that he did not expect to win the tickets to watch the final match of the European football championship live in France, thus he was surprised when his name was picked out during the lucky draw.
The eye specialist from Johor Bahru, who was present with his wife, Vimala, 48, and his son, Nithin, 10, said this would be his first trip to France with his wife and is very happy and excited about it. “This is amazing. We thought we had missed the luxury cars offered during first Signature Selection campaign, but now that we have won a trip to France on the second Signature Selection campaign, we would like to thank UEM Sunrise for that.
It will be a real Rendezvous in France for us,” he said. Apart from winning a pair of tickets to watch the final match, Dr. Chandra also won a pair of return flight tickets, 5D/4N five-star accommodation and a guided tour to places of interests in Paris. At the same event, Joeanne Cheah, a housewife in her early forties from Kuala Lumpur walked away with a unit of luxurious Jaguar XF worth approximately RM400,000.00 in a separate lucky draw opened to a total of 93 contenders comprising purchasers of UEM Sunrise’s projects in Melbourne, Australia namely Aurora Melbourne Central and Conservatory with a minimum transaction value of RM3 million each purchaser and active Trésorians with Diamond rating.
“I am speechless and shocked to have won a brand new Jaguar XF as I never expected to win any prize tonight. When we purchased a unit of UEM Sunrise’s Aurora Melbourne Central, we did not even know that we will be in the running for a lucky draw contest,” said Joeanne.
“My husband and I have been UEM Sunrise’s purchaser for the last eight years and we are confident with what the Company has to offer thus far. We will continue to invest in the Company’s properties because we like the locations of its properties which we feel are different from other developers and most importantly the quality of its product offerings,” Joanne added.
