YES Chicken Rice gave out more than 1200 set of chicken rice on 9 August NDP to Pioneer Generation and Merdeka Generation
To commemorate our Nation's birthday on 9 August, YES Chicken collaborated with Shin Min Daily Newspaper to give out 890 sets of chicken rice by artistes Lawrence Hiew and Danielle Gan.
Those who possessed Pioneer Generation, Merdeka Generation cards and those who are 54 years old were entitled to a packet of chicken rice each. Readers who purchased copies of Shin Min newspaper also received a packet of chicken rice worth $2.80.
Even before the start of the event, there was already a queue forming in front of YES Chicken Rice stall and many people had also bought a copy of Shin Min Daily Newspaper.
At 8.45am, the giveaway kick-started. Artistes Lawrence Hiew and Danielle Gan were helping to take orders and packed the packets of chicken rice for all the folks, as well as promoting the special giveaway by YES Chicken and Shin Min Daily Newspaper.
By 11am, YES Chicken was out of stock for their chicken and had to prepare their new batch of chicken. By this time, they had already given out more than 1000 packets of chicken rice. Whole chickens were also sold at an incredible price of $8.90 in conjunction with National Day. More than 100 whole chickens were also snatched by the folks.
Founder of YES Chicken, Chef Sing, explained that to celebrate his opening of YES Chicken second outlet on 4 August and National Day, he thought of returning back to society and thus the idea of giveaway chicken rice for our Pioneer Generation & Merdeka Generation in particular.
Artistes Lawrence and Danielle, including Chef Sing were all grateful for the opportunity to do their little part for Singapore on its birthday and also the support from all the patrons to make this meaningful event a successful one.
