Entry is free


Answer as many questions as you like. The more questions you attempt, the greater your chance of winning a prize.

 

PRIZES

The first six people* who comment on each question with the correct answer will win a health screening voucher from Gribbles.
 

But don’t worry if you don’t get in quick enough, at the end of the competition, all correct answers will go in the draw to win the grand prize of two return economy tickets from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, courtesy of Air Asia X.
 

We will reveal the winners of the Gribbles vouchers, together with the correct answer, on our Facebook page each day after 4.00pm (Malaysia time), unless it is a weekend in which case the winner will be revealed after 4.00pm (Malaysia time) the next business day.
 

We will reveal the winner of the grand prize on our Facebook page on or after Tuesday, 31 January 2017.

 

* Daily Prizes may only be won once per participant.  If a participant has already won a Daily Prize, then the prize will go to the next person after them to correctly answer the question and so forth. However, all correct entries (including by Daily Prize winners) will go into the draw for the grand prize.
