Muhammad Herman Abdullah Sebi had the surprise of his life when he won a brand new Hyundai Creta at Tabung Amanah Islam Brunei (TAIB) recent “Win A Creta” Grand Draw Promotion Campaign.
He stood fourth in line with seven other participants who each held a car key they chose at random, waiting for their turn with hopes to start the stunning blue Hyundai Creta.
Once Herman sat at the driver’s seat and turned his key in the ignition, the sound of the smooth engine filled the shopping centre, causing an eruption of applause from the anticipating crowd.
The civil servant recently opened a personal finance account with TAIB last November that qualified him for the promotion.
He further expressed his gratitude for being a part of the campaign and is looking forward to giving the car to his parents who live in Tutong.
“This car would definitely help out both my parents who would sometime need to drive back and forth from Tutong to the RIPAS hospital for treatment,” said the 36-year-old.
Other winners who received prizes included Muhammad Afiif Mohd Ali who won an Umrah and Travel voucher worth $5000 and 10 other winners who took home consolation prizes consisting of vouchers worth $1000 and $800 respectively.
The campaign, which ran from March 1 to November 30 was aimed to reward and show appreciation to its clients, and to promote awareness on TAIB financing products.
Present to hand over the prizes were Minister of Defence II and Chairman of Perbadanan TAIB’s Board of Directors YB Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Hj Awg Halbi Hj Mohd Yussof.
