More treats for ST readers as part of paper's 170th birthday celebrations

Missed out on the first round of The Straits Times treats? Fret not, there is more to come.

Singapore's most-read paper celebrates its 170th birthday in July, and is giving its readers a chance to join in the bash by giving out a second batch of treats.

They include a five-star luxury resort stay in the Maldives and tickets to British crooner Sam Smith's concert in Australia next month - accommodation and air tickets included.

Other prizes are a dinner for two at the award-winning Joel Robuchon Restaurant, and a pair of tickets to international superstar Katy Perry's concert in Singapore on May 11.

The Straits Times will be giving out tickets to blockbusters and exclusive access to the latest tech toys.

Said Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez: "The gifts we have picked reflect our readers' interest - food, travel, music and movies, as well as gadgets. This is our way of thanking them for reading us whether it is in print, on our website or apps."

More than 20,000 people sent in their applications when the first batch of treats was launched last month.

Previous treats included VIP tickets to boyband One Direction's concert last week and a seven-course dinner for two at acclaimed French restaurant Jaan.

More treats will be unveiled on the website throughout the year.

The year-long giveaway is supported by brands such as cruise operator Star Cruises and hotel chain Frasers Hospitality.

"Star Cruises is greatly honoured to be a key sponsor for the ST170 Anniversary Treats Campaign," said Mr Michael Goh, senior vice-president of sales.
