Chong Chee Ming drove home a brand new Suzuki Celerio after he was picked as the grand prize winner of the Sharp ‘Be Original’ grand draw ceremony at the Sharp Concept Store in R&T Electronic Enterprise Gadong Branch yesterday.

Forty-one prizes worth about BND30,000 were given away in the grand draw ceremony including Sharp Aquos 60″ 4K Smart TV, Sharp Pelican Series Refrigerator, Sharp Inverter R32 Air-conditioner, Sharp Fully Auto Washer and many more.

Chong Chee Ming, who is an engineer, said, “I didn’t think that I would win a car today. I was very lucky. When Frankie Ngu drew the number out I could see one of the digits was two, but I didn’t know it was my number until 21 was announced.”

Chong bought a Sharp 65″ TV that entitled him to join the draw. “I chose the TV because it was within my price range and the colour was very sharp,” he said.

On winning the car, he said the new car will be given to his daughter as she will be turning 18 soon.

The draw was made by R&T Electronic Enterprise Managing Director Frankie Ngu, R&T Electronic Enterprise CEO Irene Chew and R&T Electronic Enterprise Marketing and Business Development Manager Andy Lim as well as Senior Manager of Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) Johnny Chan and the General Manager of the Consumer Electronic Division of Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) S M Tok.

Some 1,000 entries were received during the promotion period from December 15, 2018 to December 31, 2019.

The ceremony saw R&T Electronic Enterprise handing over Sharp Air purifiers to Chung Hwa Middle School BSB and the Brunei Fuzhou Shiyyi Association as donations.
