The winner, Ms Wong Wan Er, was surprised and elated at the same time, ‘’I still can’t believe that this is real, but perhaps I will once I drive home in the Proton X50. When I first heard about this competition, I remember asking my friends and family to buy IK Yellow paper, so that they would have a chance of winning the grand prize. I never thought that I would be the one to win it. Thank you so much IK Yellow for the grand prize, I will continue supporting this quality paper brand.’’

Ms Wong shared that she had registered her marriage last year and her parents were worried about her travelling without a car. But thanks to IK Yellow, this worry has now been eliminated. She adds that the family can now travel around more conveniently and often with her new car.
