Just ‘like’ and ‘follow’ to win a home

PETALING JAYA: All Malaysians have a chance to win a unit of the trendy PJ Midtown serviced suites worth more than half a million ringgit.


To get that chance, they need only to visit any fair and “like” and “follow” its Facebook page.

Star Media Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai said the Win a Home (WAH) campaign, which will kick off on May 11, is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity.

“A recent poll by the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (Rehda) found that 56% of Malaysians want to own a home within the next six months,” said Wong during the contest launch at the Oasis Gallery in Oasis Damansara, a project here by Sime Darby Brunsfield, yesterday.


The value of owning a home is deeply entrenched in the Asian culture, he noted.

“However, the present economic situation has proven to be challenging in the real estate market and owning a home has become a distant dream for many Malaysians.

“But the WAH campaign gives everybody a chance to win a unit at the PJ Midtown Development located in Section 13, Petaling Jaya,” he said.

The WAH campaign is organised by and PJ Midtown Development.


The campaign was launched at Oasis Damansara by (from left) Teh Chin Guan, Wan Hashimi Albakri, Wong Chun Wai, Richard Ng Choon Seng, Gan Thian Leong and Gan Tien Chie.


Sime Darby Property chief operating officer Richard Ng Choon Seng said PJ Midtown is a mixed development sited in the most sought-after address in town.

“It is surrounded by a plethora of amenities within less than a 10km radius. It is also Green Building Index Gold-compliant, with its state-of-the-art energy management and rainwater harvesting systems,” said Ng.

PJ Midtown is a joint development by IOI Properties Group, Sime Darby Property, and Brunsfield International Group.


Also present were IOI Properties Group chief operating officer Teh Chin Guan, Sime Darby Property chief transformation officer Datuk Wan Hashimi Albakri, Brunsfield International Group founder and group managing director Tan Sri Dr Gan Thian Leong and executive director Gan Tien Chie.
