One in 19 women in Malaysia are affected by breast cancer, according to an article published by the KL-based Breast Cancer Foundation (formerly known as Pride Foundation). Continuing a tradition that has been going on for many years now, this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there’s a variety of delectable high tea sets that have been exclusively prepared by local hotels.

Nothing beats the feeling of being able to sit down and relax in a beautiful setting while sipping on a cup of tea and indulging in sweet and savoury treats. At the same time, isn’t it wonderful to be able to share the latest goss or fill your BFFs in on the happenings in your life? And you can do it all while knowing that you’re contributing to a good cause as the proceeds from these selected high tea sets will be donated to various breast cancer organisations.
