PETALING JAYA: Over 100 coffee shop operators nationwide were treated to an afternoon of fun and games organised by Nestle Professional at 1Utama recently.
Early birds, who posed for photographs in front of a coffee shop backdrop, were presented with an instant photo as a souvenir. Guests were served Maggie mee goreng, kuih-muih and unlimited cups of Nescafe and Milo beverages.
Syed Khaidhir Syed Abdullah, dubbed Master of Teh-Tarik, showed off his skills making tea with two steel containers while dancing. He also demonstrated his Nescafe Shake moves with metal shakers filled with the beverage.
Earlier this year, Nestle Professional held a Peraduan Peluang Keemasan for the second year running, and the event saw a prize-presentation ceremony for lucky winners of the contest.
Lim Neoh Heng, 49, was the grand prize winner for the contest. He won a Nissan Almera 1.5 litre car.
Lim and his wife, Ang Cheng Suan, run the Super Tango coffee shop in Taman Lip Shin in Penang. The couple have three grown-up children who are in their 20s.
Lim said the family would find the car useful although they already have a Perodua Myvi, Toyota Vios and a Honda Accord.
Weekly prizes such as Panasonic 32 inch LCD television and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 were given to winners throughout the competition period from April 1 to Sept 30.
First prize winners Rohani Suhaimi and Abdul Mukthahir Ibrahim each received RM18,888, followed by second-prize winners, Shee Kim Huat and Teoh Ah Teh, who each walked away with RM12,888; while 20 third-prize winners won a Sony Notebook VAIO E Series 14 each.
Nestle Professional for Malaysia and Singapore country business manager Yap Kin Kee said Nestle Professional helps coffee shop owners with advertising and promotional support by providing point-of-sale materials like signs, menu boards, posters as well as promotional packages to attract more patrons and boost sales, he said.
