TIES Center Eid Open House- UPDATE!

Hey all!

We were at the TIES Center this evening and it was a wonderful experience to be involved in the whole event. We met many lovely people and my son had a lot of fun!

OK! So if you’ve ever been to the TIES Center you’ve probably met Mr. Tony. I was so glad to see this!

DSC_0037I’m already enrolled for Dialogue class at the Center and I’m really looking forward to it. There were lots of other Islamic books on the TIES stall.

Here are a few other stalls that were put up:

The Body Bar stall was being handled by a very sweet girl named Yasmeen, who told me that all their products were natural and edible! Edible or not, they had some of the best smelling body scrubs and body butters I’ve encountered in a long time (*thumbs up*). The best part was that, they didn’t smell like the commercial body butters that you find EVERYWHERE (*thumbs down*).

I haven’t tried any of their products yet, but I have their card and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on some of these yummies! If any of you would like to know more about there products you can check them out on instagram @TheBodyBarQ or contact them on this Whats app number:96955445.

I also met Tifani, who runs a professional hair care business, in Mahboula. She was really kind and told me about the many benefits of Shea Butter and Black Soap. I had been looking for black soap all over Kuwait, for the past few months, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. At least now I know where I can get it from!

The good thing is that Tifani Hairstyles offer Home services as well! They offer hair nourishing treatments like Argan Oil, Aloe Vera, etc. They even have Locs Care, Quickweaves and Sewins. You can find Tifani Hairstyles  on instagram – @TIFANIHAIRSTYLES

Her Facebook account also goes by the same name- TIFANI HAIRSTYLES

Tifani and her friend also had a stall for jewelry and this one really caught my eye. Its so dainty!

All the items were affordable and they also showed me this cool incense lighter

DSC_0028Its a really handy thing to have if you’re travelling or on the move and you don’t like burning incense large scale.

All in all, it was a pleasant experience, thanks to the wonderful managerial staff: Dr. Teresa, Reham El-Sayed and the lovely Huda. Thank you ladies for your kindness. Hope to see you all soon!

If you’re planning to visit them, don’t forget to meet these lovely people.

TATA!

 

 

Eid Open House at TIES Center For Cross Cultural Dialogue

On the 31st of last month we visited the TIES (Center for Cross Cultural Dialogue), for Eid Ul-Fitr Open House.

It was a gathering for people, to get together and celebrate Eid (irrespective of religion or nationality) and was a wonderful experience; especially since it was a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world!

The Quiz was on the reverse of this flyer and I didn’t win, so I’m guessing I didn’t get it all right. Still I’m going to post pictures here so you guys can help me figure them out.

There was also a clothes stall, which is not mentioned in the flyer. You could purchase any piece of displayed clothing for 5 KD and the proceeds were to go to benefit Gaza. Sister Lynn, who was really kind and patient, was handling this area. She also told me that she teaches sewing at The British School Of Kuwait, which was happy news for me because I was happy to meet another sewer. She had also brought along some of the dresses she made herself and these could also be purchased.

I was also Informed that Sister Lynn takes sewing classes for adults once a week, for which you could contact her. Apparently they teach professional sewing techniques so yeyyy! I have been trying to get in touch with sister Lynn but haven’t been able to get through to her, but as soon as I do get more info, I shall post it here.

We got some posters made from the Calligraphy corner and we also contemplated, on buying a few pieces of art from Tariq Alobaid’s corner. Some of the paintings were really beautiful and we got his card, to get in touch with him later, InshaAllah. You can look for Tariq Alobaid on various social medias:

All in all it was a fun experience. You can visit the TIES website for more information on the work they do and any upcoming events.
