We all know a loved one, or that of a loved one, who’s been diagnosed with breast cancer. With the birth of ‘Pink October’, companies and organisations around the globe collectively pledge their efforts to raise awareness for the cancer, and as consumers we’ve got a vital role to play too. All month long, we can contribute even in the tiniest ways without even realising it with proceeds from various products, meals, and services dedicated to related charities around the world. Here’s how you can help:
Catch up with the girls over cranberry and rose scones, available for a limited time only. Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur‘s Executive Pastry Chef Antony Hoyle and his team of talented cooks have created a special afternoon tea selection of savouries and sweets, with a glass of Taittinger rose champagne to wash it all down. Other bites include the frosted berliner with vanilla custard, chicken tikka with spice toast bread, and roasted beef cannelloni stuffed with truffle eggplant caviar.10% of proceeds will be donated to the Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation.
The Pink Afternoon Tea is available from 1 October to 21 November 2019 between 2.30pm-6.30pm, at MYR 158 / MYR 208 with a glass of Taittinger rose champagne. For bookings, call +603-2179-8797 or email email@example.com.
Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur has organised a number of promotions for Pink October, including its own “Pretty in Pink” afternoon tea special at The Lounge, two new pink cocktails at Bar Trigona, and our favourite: a spa day. It begins with a welcome drink, foot soak, Himalaya energising scrub and express back massage — needless to say, everything is in pink.
The spa package is available at MYR 360 person (MYR 10 as donation). For bookings, call +60-323828888.
If you can’t get enough of high tea dates this month, level up to the 53rd floor of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur. Boasting spectacular views of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline, guests can opt to add on a glass of Moet & Chandon Rose Champagne or Cassiopera Rosato Rose. 10% of all proceeds will be channelled towards National Cancer Society Malaysia for the sponsorship of women from low-income households to undergo mammogram screening at NCSM centres throughout the country.
The October Afternoon Chari-Tea is available daily throughout October at MYR 98 / MYR 143 per person. For bookings, call +603-2113-1823 or email Altitude-KL@banyantree.com.
The pink collection is available at Sephora Malaysia and selected hair salons.
Shangri-La Hotel is collaborating with renowned local jewellery brand, Bowerhaus, for a special afternoon tea that comes with a gift: a personalised Clover of Hope Pink Brooch. The hotel will donate MYR 20 from each set of the Pink Afternoon Tea to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA).
The Pink Afternoon Tea is available until 31 October 2019 at the Lobby Lounge, from 3pm to 6pm at MYR 190 for 2 persons or MYR 320 for 2 persons with sparkling prosecco wine. To make a reservation, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 88 7388.
