Pinay Nurse in Dubai Wins AED 100K Jackpot Prize

During the Dubai Shopping Festival, City Centre Mirdif — in coordination with the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) — set up a campaign for shoppers to win cash prizes.

According to Angela, she was working at the medical centre when she received a call from campaign organizers, so she didn’t pay much attention at first. Apparently, her shopping purchases at the mall qualified her for the Million Dirham Wheel campaign, Gulf News reported.

When it was her turn to spin the raffle wheel, it landed on the AED 100,000 jackpot prize. How cool is that! The prize is equal to PHP 1.4 million, which makes her an instant millionaire in the Philippines. She couldn’t believe it at first, but when it finally sunk in, she was happy and overwhelmed at the same time!

When asked what she plans to do with her prize, Angela shared that she would give part of the money to a janitor in the building where she resides. Despite not knowing much English, the man greets her “good morning” every day. She wants to be a blessing to him!

Likewise, she plans to use part of the prize money in fixing her deceased parents’ resting place. They died about 10 years ago, and their graves need attention, she explained.
