Mothers Were Truly Made To Feel Special At Our Unique Mother’s Day Event
What can possibly be more rewarding and fulfilling than showing your mother your unconditional love and gratitude for all that she has done?
This year at Bawabat Al Sharq mall, we wanted to pass a message to all our patrons. We wanted them to realize that mothers make our world a truly beautiful and splendid place and that showing them respect and acknowledging their role should be a daily ritual.
The activities began on the 13th of March, where a “Box of Surprises” graced the mall. Shaped in the form of a gigantic gift, unsuspecting mall visitors were invited to enter the box. They were encouraged to express their feelings towards their mothers and share with us how they would like to honor them on their special day, and if they were to buy her a present from Bawabat Al Sharq mall, what would it be? all while being filmed on camera. On the 21st of March a team of over 50 people worked around the clock to deliver this spectacular celebration.
All the participants were unexpectedly granted the gifts they had wished for to honor and express their gratitude to their mothers. The event was hosted by the talented presenter from Abu Dhabi TV, Saeed Al Maamary. Saeed kept the crowd entertained with his charismatic stage antics as they awaited the appearance of the renowned Omani sand artist, Shayma Al Mughairy. Shayma found her way to stardom when she was featured in the hit tv show “Arabs Got Talent”. She continued to captivate the attention of the audience with a customized live sand animation illustrating the importance of a mother in her child’s life. Although Mother’s day may not be part of the traditional local culture, it is a day to commemorate mothers for their contributions to society.
