Pink October: 10 Pink Afternoon Tea sets in Klang Valley to support breast cancer awareness
In October, we eat pink
The arrival of October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign to raise awareness on the impact of breast cancer. With the Covid-19 pandemic at the centre of attention for the past one-year-plus, this month serves as an important reminder to watch out for other health symptoms that you may have been overlooking, particularly where breast health is concerned.
In other words, here’s your PSA to perform a breast examination, if you haven’t done so recently (or regularly). At the same time, you can also support the campaign while dining-in for a good cause with the return of exclusive Pink Afternoon Tea sets by leading hotels in Malaysia.
