Kuala Lumpur, 12 March 2012 - An analyst got a pleasant surprise when told that she won the Porsche Boxster Banker's Edition, the grand prize offered in the UOB Chance Of A Lifetime contest.

An elated How Eng Hwa (36), claimed that she was still in a daze from the call she received from United Overseas Bank (Malaysia) Berhad [UOB (Malaysia)].

"I did not expect to win. And now, I can whiz around the city in an enviable limited edition Porsche convertible! This is certainly a chance of a lifetime!" quipped a very excited How.

How, together with winners of the RM1,000 daily cash prize for the final month were at the prize presentation ceremony held at UOB (Malaysia)'s headquarters. UOB (Malaysia)'s Managing Director & Country Head of Personal Financial Services, Kevin Lam presented How with the key to the Porsche Boxster as well as RM1,000 cheques to the other winners.

"UOB Cards complements our cardmembers' lifestyle with many exclusive privileges and benefits, and the high level prizes of giving away a more than half million Ringgit Porsche Boxster Banker's Edition and a total of RM100,000 was our way of rewarding our customers. This was one of our more exciting contests and we received historic high billings on our cards usage during the contest period. All customers had to do was swipe as little as RM50 to get an entry into the contest and be in the running for these coveted prizes," said Lam.
