NSmen queue up for 1,000 free Whopper burgers

Fast

food joint Burger King gave away 1,000 “Whopper” burgers to NSmen on Friday

afternoon because the company wanted to show their “appreciation” and give the

uniformed men an opportunity to “satiate their appetite”, said general manager

Wong Shyang Jiuu. The first 1,000 soldiers queuing outside its outlet at White

Sands Shopping Center in Pasir Ris got a free burger each. They also got to

complete the meal with a drink and a pack of fries at discounted prices. The rest

of the men waiting in line got to buy the iconic burger at half the price

(usual price $5.95) -- only for the day.
