October has been declared as the month in a worldwide annual campaign for bringing about the awareness of breast cancer. In conjunction with raising funds for this campaign, Macalister Mansion (MM) has its white front facade glowing in pink.

The event held recently at MM on Macalister Road hosted many esteemed guests including YB Puan Betty Chew, who was welcomed by Dato’ Sean H’ng Chun Hsiang, director of MM and his wife, Datin Karen H’ng.

Also present at the event were Yang Berbahagia Puan Sri Datin Seri Dato’ Akmal Abdul Salam, patron of Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA), Ranjit Kaur, CEO of BCWA and Tham Wei Wei, CEO of Mount Miriam, Keith Tan and Jenny Ooi.

The event commenced with a press conference, with speeches highlighting the awareness programme by the representatives from BCWA and Mount Miriam Hospital. It was followed by the launching of two new ‘pink’ sweet offerings, a mocktail – Pinkilicious and a dessert – Garden of Hope.

Priced at RM30++ each, these sweet additions are available in the Dining Room, Living Room and Bagan Bar for this pink October month. 100 per cent proceeds from sales of the Garden of Hope and 50 per cent proceeds from Pinkilicious will go towards BCWA and Mount Miriam Hospital.

The PINKilicious mocktail created by Shah is a blending of refreshing apple and pineapple juices, grenadine and lemongrass.

The Garden of Hope is a dessert created by MM’s Chef Lance. He has taken full advantage of the reddish fruits to make this dessert. I love this wholesome and tasty dessert made with raspberry bavarois, organic cane sugar crumble, chocolate fondue strawberry with soy and raspberry gelato.

The evening progressed with dinner, where guests mingled and enjoyed live music and food prepared by Chef Lance. The dishes were presented with themed decorations of pink ribbons and flowers.

The starter was kind of interesting, a sunchoke panna cotta with black truffle gel, mesclun and balsamic pearls. Particularly tasty is the main course, a serving of pan fried miso cod. Its flavor hold up beautifully with the watercress puree.
