Yes, you read that right!!!! Someone won a house by playing a series of games.
Forty-one Guardian Malaysia shoppers had went through an exhilarating one-hour reality challenge which saw them pitch their wits against each other in the final lap of the Guardian Win-A-House (WAH) contest.
The WAH contest, the first ever to be held by Guardian Malaysia, was organized to mark its 49th anniversary celebrations and Malaysia’s national day. The contest, which ran from 28 July to 28 September, required customers to guess the number of Guardian tissue packs in the acrylic model house, measuring 2 feet (width) by 3 feet (height) by 3 feet (length).
Some of the games the finalists played:
Throwing tissues into basket.
Spot the difference in 1 minute
Building a tower.
Finally, they were 2 finalists.
The final challenge was to throw ping pong balls into cups...
...and we have a winner!
Woo-hoo! It was heart stopping and we were finally relieved to have gotten a winner!
At the end of the thoroughly enjoyable grand finale, Syarina Nordin beat 40 other finalists in a series of exciting challenges, coming up top in the Guardian Win A House Contest! The Admin Manager, who just days ago celebrated her 37th birthday, walked away with her very first house worth RM489,000. The dream house is set in the idyllic and fast growing township of D’Mayang Sari. It is developed by award-winning developer Seri Pajam Development Sdn Bhd.
The others took home, between them, 500,000 air miles, 10 Kuvings Slow Juicers, worth more than RM2,800 each, and 40 La Gourmet utensils and product hampers worth more than RM100 each.
The contest was a huge success, more than 40,000 entries from all over Malaysia.
I want to win the next one!! Hehe
