Despite plugging her new album, Gaia, Canto-pop diva Sandy Lam Yik-lin still found time to promote awareness of breast cancer.

"Very often we take a lot of things that are happening around us for granted, like our loving family members, good friends and colleagues. We often see flaws in things and don't learn to cherish them until we lose them," Lam said.

She was in Taipei at the weekend, where Estee Lauder was celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Pink Ribbon breast cancer awareness initiative. Lam is a world pink ribbon ambassador for the beauty brand.

"We actually have a lot of things in life that are worth celebrating," she said.

The star has been globetrotting lately. She was at the Paris Fashion Week early this month and returned to Hong Kong only briefly before heading to Taipei to film music videos for her album.

The video for her song Crowded Loneliness went online this week.
