RAIN OR SHINE: FREE ICE-CREAM FOR ALL!
“THANK YOU” may only be two regular words which we use in our daily conversations, but behind these words are 28 million hearts which contain the deepest and warmest gratitude towards our Malaysian Contingent in London who have done the country proud with their achievements.
Therefore, in appreciation of the valiant efforts by our Olympians, Impian Emas Negara – an Olympic initiative by Media Prima Berhad – has decided to STILL reward all Malaysians with FREE Baskin-Robbins ice-cream!
Earlier, Impian Emas Negara pledged to give out free ice-cream at Baskin-Robbins outlets nationwide if Malaysia secures its very first Olympic gold medal.
En. Ahmad Izham Omar, Chief Operating Officer, TV Networks & Chief Executive Officer of Primeworks Studios, Media Prima Berhad, said Impian Emas Negara will still give out free ice-cream on Wednesday, 8 August 2012 at all 61 Baskin-Robbins outlets nationwide (excluding two kiosks at Pantai Hospital, Bangsar and Genting Theme Park) from 8.00 p.m. till 10.00 p.m., where every single Malaysian will be entitled to one scoop of the much-loved ice-cream brand.
“It was such an amazing experience for us Malaysians to witness our athletes compete superbly in the world’s most prestigious sports event. We felt, after seeing their high-level display of commitment and sportsmanship, that there is no reason for us to not go ahead with the free ice-cream giveaway for all Malaysians. We should all celebrate our heroes who have helped the country achieve international glory and in the process, united us all,” said Izham.
Sharing the same sentiment, Mr. Cheah See Yeong, President of Golden Scoop Sdn Bhd, Baskin-Robbins’ partner in Malaysia, said that Baskin-Robbins is excited to welcome Malaysians to its outlets on 8 August.
“We invite all Malaysians to come celebrate the nation’s pride at all Baskin-Robbins outlets nationwide on 8 August from 8.00 to 10.00 p.m. Not only that, early birds who turn up at our event will also be given exclusive vouchers offering the sweetest deals. Customers may choose from any of our 31 flavours available in stores. I think the best picks that symbolise this significant event are our Gold Medal Ribbon and World Class Chocolate.” said Mr. Cheah.
“This is also a great way for us to thank Malaysians who made a difference through their relentless support to our Malaysian Contingent,” Cheah added.
