Lucky Man Goes Shopping and Went Home with a Brand New Lamborghini

Luck usually comes unannounced. You will never know when or when luck will decide to come to your life. You may just be watching TV and you will instantly win the jackpot or out of nowhere, you will find a wallet with thousands of dollars on the street.

Some people are just lucky. Take this man who just went out shopping in Kuching Airport as an example.

According to Asia One, there were five finalists who were all competing to be the lucky owner of a prized Lamborghini. One of the finalists, Riyo Kawakami, went home with the gold when he walked away driving a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder from the Malaysian Airport’s 25th Anniversary Shopping Campaign Spend and Win contest.

In order to participate in the lucky draw, you need to spend a minimum of RM250 at any of the five international airports operated by the Malaysian Airports: KL International Airport, Penang International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, and Kuching International Airport.

Lucky First Try

During the event’s finale, which was held in Avenue K’s Rooftop, Kawakami became the winner. After his big win, the 43-year-old Japanese General Manager of an engine oil manufacturing company has been seen patting his chest several times, as he realized he just bagged a Lamborghini.

Winning the luxury car was probably surreal for him as he revealed it is his first time to join a contest.

I am at loss for words. This is my first time participating in such a contest and I did not expect to win anything.

Kawakami also added that he loves collecting luxury watches and spent almost RM2 Million on lavish Rolex watches from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport during his visit last year.

No One Is Going Home Empty Handed

The other four finalists did not go home empty-handed. They walked away with expensive prizes too. Each finalist won an all-expense paid trip to London or Paris for two each.

Each trip includes business class flight tickets, five-star accommodation, fine-dining experiences, and pocket money of RM3,894.50 or $1,000.

The Chairman of Malaysian Airports, Datuk Badlisham bin Ghazali, revealed that airport shopping had become an integral part of air travel. The shopping campaign earned a total of 170,000 entries, with the five finalists being the luckiest ones among the entries.
