A man recently paid for Tony Fernandes’ lunch and in return he was given a free ticket to Maldives.
According to a report by Guang Ming Daily (translated by The Star Online), 27 year old Jackson Yee was having his birthday lunch alone when he noticed Fernandes and a group of his friends sitting in front of him at a Putrajaya restaurant on June 29.
Jackson told the Chinese daily that he wanted to take a picture with Fernandes as he is one of his idols, but decided against it as the AirAsia boss was engaged in a conversation with his friends.
Instead, he paid for Fernandes’ lunch and left him a note, thanking him for being such an inspiration to all Malaysians.
Fernandes then posted the note on his Facebook page, and offered Jackson a ticket to the Maldives, which he accepted.
