A few days before the CNY holiday season got started, together with a few familiar faces, I was invited to the launch of PETRONAS Chinese New Year Coffee Break at the Tapah R&R’s PETRONAS station.
did you grab your free coffee this CNY balik kampung season at Petronas?
For those who are not familiar, the PETRONAS CNY Coffee Break is one of the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programs run by PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad. This particular program has been running for the past 16 years.
It is actually a very simple program – PDB invites motorists to the participating service stations along major travel routes to collect a special PETRONAS Coffee Break pouch together with other goodies, including a can of Wonda coffee, Munchy’s Oat Krunch, Lexus Chocolate and Chinese New Year ang pow packets; and you don’t even need to purchase anything to collect the pouch.

As part of the same program, PETRONAS also contributes RM 20,000 in PRIMAX 95 fuel for St. John Ambulance of Malaysia in their effort to patrol major highways. This particular aspect of fuel contribution has been carried out for the past 21 consecutive years.
With the current fuel price, that translate to some 11764 liters of fuel. That’s plenty of miles on the highway.

PDB Managing Director & CEO Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus and Retail Business Senior General Manager Shaharuddin Muhammad Sidek were on the ground and launched the program by initiating the lion dance (have you ever see a lion inside Mesra store?) and giving out the coffee break pouch to several unsuspecting motorists. They also took the opportunity to wish all Malaysians who are celebrating CNY a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year, and a safe journey home.

The PETRONAS Coffee Break program was held on the 14 to 15 February and 21 to 22 February at 39 participating PETRONAS Stations. I’m pretty sure similar program will be held the next CNY season.
