Good things go to those who wait.
In the case of Khatwani Khushi, owner of Khushi Jewellers, he has been waiting since 1989 to win the prizes of Dubai Duty Free's Finest Surprise Promotion. His patience finally paid off when he won one of the two Mercedes Benz S500s yesterday with his Ticket No. 0365, Series No. 1042.

Khushi, a resident of Dubai for 30 years, won the brilliant silver Mercedes Benz S500. He had been supporting the Finest Surprise Promotion since its inception in 1989.

Another Dubai-based Indian won the second Mercedes Benz S500 in a draw held at the Duty Free shopping complex of the Sheikh Rashid Terminal.

P. Krishnan, who works for Emirates Airlines' Revenue Section, was delighted to hear that his ticket No. 0507 from Series No. 1040 won him a travertine beige Mercedes Benz S500. He purchased his ticket on March 29 before catching his flight to Chennai.

Following yesterday's draw was the presentation to Dubai Duty Free's previous car winner, Phil Spencer. He is a photographer from the Daily Mirror newspaper in the UK and just took some time off to collect the Jaguar X Type 3.0, from Series No. 1031, Ticket No. 0989.

He was flown to Dubai on Emirates Airlines courtesy of Dubai Duty Free.

The draw and presentation were conducted by Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free, along with Brendan O'Shea, Deputy General Manager-Operations, and Salah Tahlak, Senior Manager-Promotion and Advertising.
