Katrina Anjela Caguiat, young Filipina based in Dubai, won a BMW 750 Li on the ticket purchased during a trip to Hong Kong with her parents to celebrate her birthday.

Ansh Chandani, a student of Dubai Modern High School, won a Harley Davidson motorcycle on a ticket purchased when he was on his way to India in June to spend his summer vacation.

Katrina's father, Oliver Caguiat, who received a phone call from Dubai Duty Free, was delighted to learn that his daughter is the winner of the beautiful car. Oliver bought the ticket as a gift for his daughter when the family travelled to Hong Kong to celebrate her birthday. He said, 'My daughter chose the car and the ticket herself and I am happy that I trusted her to do that.'

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Ansh, said, 'I feel very nice that I have won the mobike. I would love to ride it. But, I'll give it to my father as a birthday gift.'

Recalling the reason for buying the ticket, his mother, Poonam, said, 'We were at Dubai International Airport to travel to India when he saw the Harley Davidson on display at the Dubai Duty Free. Since his father rides a bike, Ansh asked me if we could gift it to his father on his birthday. I also thought it would be a great idea and decided to buy the ticket.'

Dirk Kirschenhofer, based in Germany, also won a Porsche 911 Carrera in the draw that took place on Tuesday morning by Dubai Duty Free officials in the Finest Surprise Promotion at the Sheikh Rashid Terminal, Dubai International Airport.
