After a long time that asked by Nuffnang’s representative to redeem my TGI Friday’s dinner coupons that worth RM100 from their office, eventually until last week, I went to Nuffnang office to collect my coupons that I won from the TGI Friday’s contest, which I participated at 14th October 2007.

It took me three times to get my coupons from Nuffnang office. Haha. Remember that the first time, I was travel to KL and search for Nuffnang office during weekend, that time I was at Pasar Seni area, and no one know the road called “Yap Ah Shak”. Second time, I was fully prepared by search the Map of KL, asked direction from Nuffnang representative then went to KL just after the following weekend, which was Sunday. I purposely spend some of my time to find out where their office located, eventually I found it, which is near the rail station of “Dang Wangi” and same building of Heritage House.

Third time, It was Tuesday of last week, I woke up early in the morning and took the bus at 7am to KL and get my coupon, because their business hours only at weekdays.

This is the Heritage House, where Nuffnang office located. I took the lift and went to 13rd floor and went into their office to collect my coupon. Yeah! after hard search, eventually get it.

Probably the Grand prize of RM1,000 cash for one of the lucky Nuffnanger on the top of free meal at Friday’s.

A few months ago, I participated the Nuffnang, TGI Friday’s dinner contest. From my post about “Why i want to eat at friday’s“, I describe 6 reasons why I want to eat at Friday’s restaurant. After a month, I was thinking that i was not win the contest and gradually forgot about it, but 2 days ago, I was received an email from Nuffnang’s representative regarding that I won a free dinner coupon worth RM100 at TGI Friday’s restaurant.

Email received 2 days ago, that inform me to collect the free meal coupon at Nuffnang’s office. I will pick the coupon after my working days, probably this coming Saturday.haha
