Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara Collaborates with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) with a Pink October Afternoon Tea

For this year’s Pink October, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara collaborated with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) by lending a helping hand in their noble fund-raising campaigns to spread awareness and educate the public about breast cancer.  

Sofitel’s Pink October Afternoon tea, curated specially to support the cause, will be served at Le Bar Cocktails and Stories from 8 to 31 October 2021 daily from 2:30 p.m to 5:30 p.m.  RM10 from each order placed will be in contribution towards BCWA. The proceeds will directly support BCWA in their commendable efforts in executing awareness campaigns for breast cancer.

According to BCWA, one in twenty women in Malaysia are at risk of having breast cancer. This alerts us to be more compassionate in playing an active role to create awareness and provide support for all causes related to breast cancer.  Education and early detection can save lives, whilst the right support can drastically improve the lives of those affected.

The Pink October themed afternoon tea at Le Bar Cocktails and Stories features a delicately curated ensemble of delicacies imbued with French expertise and aesthetic presentation by the hotel’s chefs. To further add significance, most of the sumptuous treats ranging from sweet to savoury have been ingeniously crafted to appear in pink hues.  The picturesque pink afternoon tea arrangement treats the palate, and also symbolizes femininity and support towards breast cancer awareness.

Some of the creations include the Ispahan Macaroons finely crafted with flavours extracted from the Ispahan flower, the glazed Raspberry Financier containing essence of rose, the chocolate sphered Pink Forest with a cherry mousse, the very striking Pink Lady with Earl Grey Infused Apple Compote and a medley of other charming handmade bites looking pretty in pink.  The nuanced menu contains a blend of redefined classic recipes and chic French-inspired modern fusions.

The Pink October afternoon tea set is at RM138 for two persons and it is also available from Sofitel’s online food delivery, via

Guinness STOUTie Machines Return this October and November 2021

Malaysians have been through an overwhelming and stressful situation in the past 18 months. Favourite spots to have a fresh Guinness Draught were closed for months, and hence drinkers like myself have missed freshly pulled pints of draught brews like Guinness Draught.

Now that patrons are finally allowed to dine-in and vaccinations well above 80% of the adult population, we can finally safely reunite with friends, family and loved ones over some ice-cold brews.

“At Guinness, quality is always at heart, so fans can rest assured that only the freshest Guinness will be served when they visit the outlets again. Good things – be it reconnecting with friends and family, or Guinness Draught of best quality, come to those who wait. So, fans can finally enjoy that first sip of Guinness Draught whenever they are ready.”

Shaun Lim, Marketing Manager of Guinness Malaysia

Guinness is bringing back the renowned STOUTie machines to selected outlets across the weekends of October and November 2021. You can get your selfie printed on top of a glass of Guinness and share them on social media with the hashtags #GuinnessMY and #GuinnessStoutieMY to amaze your friends.

The full list of participating outlets and activation dates can be viewed HERE.

“As much as we are eager to bring our fans together again and celebrate the reunion between friends and family with a glass of Guinness Draught, it is also our duty to remind them to #SocialiseResponsibly and practise the 6Cs whenever they are out and about,” Lim continued.

Heineken Malaysia Berhad – where Guinness is part of its portfolio of iconic brands, introduced the 6Cs to ensure that fans abide by the rules and socialise in the safest way possible. The 6cs include:

  • Check your distance – Keep at least 1 metre physical distance between others.
  • Clean your hands – Frequently wash your hands with soap and use hand sanitiser.
  • Cash-free payment – Use contactless payment methods (e-wallet or credit/debit cards) as much as possible.
  • Contact tracing – Do comply with the outlet’s request to provide your personal details for contact tracing purposes.
  • Come back later – If you’re not feeling well, please stay at home.
  • Catch a cab – When you drive, never drink. Take a taxi or use e-hailing to get home safe.
I was out for a drink with my friends and chanced upon the Guinness STOUTie activation!
It’s good to be able to dine-in restaurants/ bars again! The STOUTie machine can even print your face on the head.
Cheers to better times ahead!
